Re: Friday Facts #245 - Campaign concept

for the campaign perhaps factory restoration and expansion, say a factory that over produces 1 type of material and under-produces others due to either last foreman dying while trying to set something new up, this leads to massive bottlenecks midway limited overall production and defence, with the p...

Re: trains stuck on blue chain signal

Simply put your tracks are too close together and its interfering with the signalling, not only do trains have problems going in but they have problems leaving too.
easiest solution to the problem is to remove every 2nd track, and place chain signals between them.

Re: Thoughts on Factorio and how I would make it better...

The biggest issue I have with factorio at the moment is to do with worker robots. If I could limit the working space of robot within a port to a few chests via the circuit network by designating Source box(s) and Deposit box(s) that would increase efficiency of my loading/unloading hubs. ( I don't m...

Although 3 belts worth of speed is enough what I'm asking for is to connect a belt to the circuit network and be able to customise the speed the belt is moving at between connected sections Why ? to better...

Rail Setup

So I'm at the stage where I'm pondering over how i should set up trains, currently i have a non-linear station setup ( Where combinators + train AI works out what train goes where ) but I'm pondering on its efficiency, has anyone experimented with this design form or should i just return to a linear...

Re: [0.15.28] Research Electronic

I've had this bug once or twice specially when loading old saves that are sync'd to a new version, what i found i had to do was actually delete the research for that item and re-research it again.

[Request / Idea] MML Reader via Blueprint strings

So looking online when people make songs i tend to see massive combinator arrays and think that is somewhat silly and there must be an easier way. So i was wondering how difficult it would be to write a Music Macro Language, and use factorios inbuilt blueprint system to import/generate songs. So a s...
