Re: Help with choosing balance between belt and bots transportation in a blueprint

1) How bad is this belt spaghetti gonna be along with everything else ups wise? 2) Would it be better to just build 2 smelters for each chip instead of optimizing with 6 to 4? 4) Would it be better to use bots? Bots for everything? Or may be only for the "leftover" chips column? How do I ...

Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

I'm not a programmer, but given the fact that on most mega-bases the bots are the most time consuming items, why wasn't they multithreaded before engine development was called finished? Multithreaded Belts are nice, but don't help any real mega-base. In short, at any point of the development, there...

[kovarex] [1.1.21] ENTER in personal logistic requests not working when in a vehicle

When changing personal logistic requests, and you hit ENTER to confirm, it doesn't confirm the logistic request but instead it makes you enter or leave a vehicle when you're near to one. Untitled.png I am used to change the numbers and hit ENTER twice to confirm and exit the window. But it doesn't w...

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

Factorio is the best Game I ever bought, gave me much more bang for my bucks than any other game before.
I have faith in Kovarex that he's going into the right direction, so whatever you will sell next, I buy it.

Re: Assambler output blocking input with clocked inserters

Is using a clocked stack filter inserter still ups-friendlier than a normal stack inserter? I thought that had changed?

Re: Nerf the Portable Fusion Reactor?

I constantly run out of energy when building larger blueprints, even with 3 PFR and ~8 Batteries.
If the PFR gets nerfed it wouldn't be any fun to play anymore.

Re: Very basic train circuit condition question

When the train stop is not connected to any circuit network, the wait-condition "circuit condition" should use the contents of the train. I use the same setup and Ore=0 on unloading and Ore > x on loading side works fine. Use Item-count instead of Circuit-condition. Sorry for bad advise.

Re: Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

You might consider adding holding stations into the schedule between the loading and unloading, then reduce the trains limit on the loading stations. Trains departing the unloading will find the closest unloaded holding station and wait there for the next available loading station. This means you c...

Re: Inserter optimization question

I suppose you could make a mod that automatically moves assembler products to an adjacent chest, then make a circuit between that chest and the inserter to only activate the inserter when the chest has at least X items. That would just double the amount of inserters, don't think that's any better f...

Re: Inserter optimization question

How would inserters only moving with full hands actually reduce CPU usage though? I expect inserters to belt to be most UPS efficient at a stack size of 1, since the inserter only needs to look at the belt for a minimum of 1 tick on a swing to drop the item. With more items in hand, it needs to che...

Re: Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

Why do you have the bypass? Having a bypass means that trains waiting in the stacker might choose to go to other stations. Alternatively put another station of the bypass, to add a penalty that will discourage trains from choosing to go another station. The bypass is a relic from building various f...

Re: Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

While what happens i think is triggering this rule : "A train stop that is part of the train's schedule gets enabled, renamed or created." or this one "The train limit of a train stop that is part of the train's schedule becomes not full." This causes repath, and not just revali...

Re: Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

A picture would probably be helpful It's a simple station without wiring, what information would give a picture? My guess is that some closer train station are freed before the train that was routing to the further one had reached it. Then this train using regular repath conditions switches its tar...

Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

I have all my train stops with a fixed number of train limit. Lately I noticed that the stations most far don't get served well, just occasionally a train gets there. So I had a look at the assigned trains to that stop, and it was changing all the time like 1/6 to 2/6 to 1/6 to 0/6... There were eve...

That's easier to say than to do actually, I find it a bit hard to time them, because they a) need so much time to get rid of the 12 items and b) you never know when there is space on the belt.

Re: Inserter optimization question

Yeah, though you'll want some nice CPU fans. I have to put an ice pack under my laptop when I play factorio. That's a good sign, Factorio at least uses all your processor power :) My laptop runs at 91°C when Factorio is working. BTW: To test the multithreaded belts I started to rebuild the smelter ...
