Re: Adding mods, which mods?

Hey all, After 304 hours of vanilla I'm looking to expand the complexity of Factorio. I've heard of Angels and Bobs, and more recently Pyanodon/SpaceX? Are these standalone, do they work with each other? Is one harder than the other? I'm not looking to increase the complexity as high as it can go, ...

Re: Did the devs abandon this game?

I don't need no stinking patch. Just started a full bob's mod game for the first time and am having a hoot trying to figure out what is what.
Had to turn peaceful mode on, as in my stupidity I added the Rampant mod :D
(will enable when I have decent lasers)

Re: 0.17 Starting ore deposits average/min/max content, variability and increases when increasing size and/or richness

If it helps, I set all to max, including starting area size, and first signs of oil and uranium were around 3 times away from me in terms of starting area boundary(don't know numbers).
Coal , I had over 60M right next door, but I did pick the map I wanted after a few dozen previews.

Re: What mods are you using - and why?

Have a look at the last piccy I posted, do you see a green light on each factory ? The mod is called Bottleneck, and as a poster above said, I cannot imagine playing without it ! The lights can be green, amber or red. Green means factory working, amber usually means blockage at output(belt or storag...

Re: What mods are you using - and why?

Infinite Worker Robot Capacity Research Now this is something I actually consider cheating :roll: But also something that has irritated me that was not part of the game as standard. While it does boggle the mind how a logistic robot can carry 3 x Rocket Silos inside the cargo space, I still would h...

Don't ignore Text Plates, it is very handy, especially when like me you're 50+, absent minded and smell of wee :D

Re: What mods are you using - and why?

p.s I use bob's logistics because the MK4 bot is faster and carries more, making it 5 times better at deliveries than the standard vanilla bot. This means you can use 5 times less bots to save a small amount of cpu/gpu cycle time :)

Re: What mods are you using - and why?

Not using wind turbine as it is so powerful you might as well have free electricity, needs balancing a lot. Besides I love designing nuclear power plants :) Also not using teleportation. Flare stack to give it the Blade Runner look and feel :D Hey I think I would like more power without covering th...

Re: Advice needed : Trains, biters & lasers

Just setup an Artillery coverage for my base to alleviate pressure on lasers, and that could work for rail. It will take time but would stop biters building close to tracks.

Advice needed : Trains, biters & lasers

I have a huge main base doing alright for itself. I am now venturing in to rail for the first time on 0.17. The biters are plentiful and very aggressive !!! I can only see laying rail down with laser spam protecting it. Is there another way ? Can I leave rail, lights, poles and signals to their own ...

Re: Version 0.17.23

Bob, you're a genuine Factorio hero :) All others, when I downloaded the experimental I said "many bumps on the way !!!" .

Re: How do I set biters back to aggressive?

How about this : How do I read these values from inside the console ?
(Console command pages have 100s of command for setting but not reading)

(below is standard starting screen, not my current game)

Re: How do I set biters back to aggressive?

As previous post :
After setting them to peaceful mode, I set it back to the opposite(aggressive).
I set expansion to true.
But they are a bit limp now, not as aggressive.
Not sure what else you want me to post ? :)

Re: How do I set biters back to aggressive?

Something still isn't correct. They are not as vicious as before.
Anything I can do ?
