Re: UPS optimized Steel smelting to 1 blue belt

Awesome:) More views/testers more fun reproducible results. I recently found the smurphy post, and missed the stevetrov one. Study time, and I'll repeat your runs this week.

Re: UPS optimization - benchmarking w/ or w/o mods

All ups measures are relative. Hardware, OS, configuration, mods, all differ between all players. So it doesn't matter if you use editor extensions or not. it is far more important that all the maps for testing have the same configurations, and the same amount of mod elements, whether it is the EE l...

Re: Train question

... A schedule entry will be waited for if, and only if, ALL enabled stops with that name have hit or exceeded their limit or are unreachable. If the train is already moving and the limit if the targeted stop gets reduced, it will try to path to another stop with the same name, but continue moving ...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

test the output first with 1 smelter row. (I do) speaker attached to belt, set reading on hold, let speaker beep at anything < 8. let it run a while on speed 64.

Re: [1.1.56] stark belt priority overflow issue

Not a Bug.
If you do not want items U238 to go on that side of the belt, you need to set a splitter filter to U235 (left side in picture). Priority means that it will output to the prioritized side only if there is room.

Just did a calculator check, you need 7 more furnaces per blue belt....:) no go. 12 beacons speed only: https://factoriolab.github.io/list?z=eJwrcLbQMjFVy3RK0TJUS.PQ8lQrNtAy1rLVctTSCi5XKzMGAIwtCDs_ 12 beacons prod in furnaces: https://factoriolab.github.io/list?z=eJwrcLbQMjFVy3RK0TJUS.PQclMrNtAy1rLV...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

Ran your top 3 saves.
Made 1 modification. i saved them on paused, with the timers on tick 1.
results:
(I calculate difference % on column execution time, since that is the exact value. Effective UPS is a calculated field)

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

We are in "our tools are not good enough for a meaningful distinction" country now. I wanted to know the consistency of the results, so I took the same save, and copied by saving them under a different name, and ran the benchmark. (the only difference between the saves is that the time of ...
