Re: [?] Overlapping electric networks can cause increased power draw

What version of the game is that? 17.79, Steam is set to "17.x Latest 0.17 Experimental".... yikes, forgot that in the title. EDIT: Thanks for the thread cleanup, my bad, that I gotta work on. A certain image was out of order, namely the mouse-over of an un-accu'd turbine network, which I didn't ma...

[0.17.79] Overlapping electric networks can cause increased power draw

So quite the wordy title, I wasn't sure how to formulate it concisively. tl;dr - An electrical consumer, ie. a lamp, connected to multiple seperate electric networks (by means of coverage-overlap) will multiply the effective draw from an electrical supply, ie. turbine according the number of electri...

"Each" Signal Choice as Stack Size Control Signal

TL;DR Please add the "Each" signal choice as a Stack Size Control Signal to Inserters to allow more finely tuned control. What ? Are there plans to add the "Any", "Every", or preferably the "Each" signal choice as the Control Signal to Inserters when overriding Stack Sizes? The idea is to use the c...

D'aww, and here I was hoping that damaged walls would also be shown as cracked and degraded á la Age of Empires, not just the little health bar.

Re: Friday Facts #251 - A Fistful of Frames

And I was wondering what the hell I should do on my August holidays. Thanks for giving me a good excuse to visit Prague! If anyone wants to meet up for a few beers and a LAN session I'm more than happy to tag along. Question for the devs, will these computers have 0.17 on them? Or the current 0.16 s...

Still, got a nice smooth 60fps there, so we got that going for 0.17, which is nice I guess. ^^

Re: Friday Facts #247 - Pricing and its exploits

Wow, that trailer for Satisfactory is pretty nice. Kudos to Wube for highlighting it despite it becoming a potential competitor; I might have never come across it otherwise. Reminds me a little of ARK: Survival with a little NMS thrown in. Well, everything NMS tried to pack into the base-building as...

Re: Iron Chests, An Idea for Conversion and Re-Use

I got it. Reduce the Cargo-Wagon iron usage in the recipe to 16, add in 1 Iron Chest, total iron raw becomes 44, recipe kiiiinda makes a little sense since ie. the fluid-wagon needs a fluid-tank as well as its other raws. :P

Oooor not. I dunno, just chucking suggestions into the air.

Re: Iron Chests, An Idea for Conversion and Re-Use

The solution is to minimize the gameplay-time with iron-chest usage. Use wooden ones until no longer feasible, then burn. Use steel chests afterward, and then collect and convert into logistic chests. Adding a recipe or amending current ones to nullify all "dead-end" recipes reduces the game into so...

Circuit Network Information 2.0 - Open Your World

Re: Filters in Fluid Wagons & Pumps

I've personally had this problem, and been able to get around this by using an arithmetic & decider combinator to detect if the pump is mathematically empty (IF -> ANYTHING multiplied by 10 is NOT EQUAL to 0) once a train has left the station, and if it this is True (as in not equal to 0), a "relief...

I tell you whats weird: Your station-name button at times is toggled in/on , but station names aren't displayed, and vice versa . Then other times its normal.... The Rule is this: you can hold down ALT, and then click any combination of first four toggles; This enables or disables their toggling to ...

Re: 0.16.42 graphics bug in font rendering

This is all going to be revamped in [17.0] anyway.
Read FFF-238.

It's be like worrying about a stray coal on the wrong side of a belt in a giant smelter setup when you're going to bulldoze it all anyway to make room for electric smelters.

Re: Friday Facts #242 - Offensive programming

I like the idea of using offensive programming because its essentially like using mines to rough-up an incoming wave of biters before turrets finish them off, instead of expecting turrets to deal with full HP behemoths. Essentially, much like a crumple zone in a car, you want the game to crash at ti...
