Infinity pipe should automatically match connected fluid.

Now that we have fluid mixing restrictions, why doesn't the infinity pipe automatically match the fluid in the network?

Having to select the correct fluid from the choice of 50+ in a modded game is somewhat annoying/tedious/error prone and completely unnecessary in the majority of use cases.

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.7

It is, for the first 30-50 hours, but also very interesting, which route you choose and how it affects the progress. After getting geodes, it gets better. I will not think about the huge requirements for end game. I'm currently at 300 hours without much rush and approaching purple science, blue is ...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

So are any of you fellow marathon players running a 'clean' SeaBlock, or are you also cheating the walking around by using long reach/squeak through? I'm only about 1/3 the way through green science and I'm already at the point where even maxed out long reach won't reach from one side of my base to ...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

Ok, then I misunderstood. I thought you crush geodes and only use crushed stone to produce saph/sit, while crystal dust sitting in warehouses. At least for a long period until tech to process is available. But that is maybe long before ferric/cupric is available and you only need a bit of tin/lead,...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

Regarding saphirite/stiratite from mineralized water, i don't have so much use for only these 2, because i use the ferric and cupric ore sorting, which uses more equal amounts of all ores. It's viable all the way to late game if you're only crystallising the excess mineralised water. Even ferric/cu...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

Imho landfill is not a long-term thing, you need more or less and eventually nothing. But I agree, its better to produce landfill from geodes directly, if you need it, than producing power and creating landfill from scratch. I just don't want to tie my ore production to landfill, which is distribut...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

One thing I'm starting to realize is that buffering stuff for later screws the ratios. Yes, its really satisfying to reduce buffering and it still works. This is what i like in seablock and esp. marathon. You need so much resources, that even a big buffer is tiny compared to overall consumption. An...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

Hello, just started replaying this pack and got to the green algae stage and noticed the recipe was significantly easier. as in just needs regular water and nothing else. Was this an update that I missed? It's a change in Angels mod, which is there since 0.3.4. It's intended. The recipe itself is n...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.3

After trying a few "hard" settings I think I like doing 100x science cost but not expensive recipes. It makes research slower than marathon, but doesn't increase the cost of building, so it makes building big both easier and more necessary. I actually quite liked the stupidly expensive st...

Re: Stations & other LTN based designs

Yours is interesting but allowing multiple fluids through one pipe has several problems c) 0.17 will even prevent connecting pipes of different fluids Doesn't 0.17 entirely remove the need for any sort of wiring to unloading pumps? Unless you're doing some sort of multi-fluid transfer station, even...

Add "Read roboport contents" as a roboport circuit network mode of operation.

The currently available mode of operations are: "Read logistic network contents", and "Read robot statistics". As far as I can tell it is not possible to determine how many/what type of robots and/or repair packs are in a roboport. Proposal: Add a third mode of operation "Re...

Re: 4-way intersections: Throughput and deadlocks [image heavy]

Is there any way to override train signals to force a (potentially dangerous) green signal? No, you can only force a red signal. So the moment an automatic train crosses even just one signal it'll never collide with another train? It's a bit disappointing that we don't even have the opportunity to ...

Re: 4-way intersections: Throughput and deadlocks [image heavy]

I made a synchroton style intersection (essentially a roundabout that requires all trains on the roundabout to be travelling at 298.1km/h before they're allowed on it) with no rail crossings (just mergers) but the throughput (50 trains/minute) has been rather disappointing. I have an entry signal ti...

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.17

(or 4 electrolysers into 2 burner crushers into 1 liquifier in the early game) Why would you crush it before the liquifier? That way needs 2x the electrolysers for sludge. Or are we talking mineralized water? We are indeed talking about the early game mineralized water used layout, although it appl...

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.17

I went for producing a large green algae farm to produce charcoal and burn it. You need a number for electrolysers for this. My spreadsheet tells me this is only optimal on marathon settings due to the massively higher cost of research, building steel costs. In normal mode you can rush to arboretum...

Thus you end up spending most of the first 10 hours twiddling your thumbs waiting for stuff to finish, with absolutely nothing you can do to speed things up. The optimal tech order and continual hand-crafting of cellulose fibre means you can solve your power constraints in just under 4 hours. This ...

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.16

the point was using steam as my main power source where lime is extremely more efficient (less than 500W/50 CO2 for lime vs 5000W/25 CO2 for charcoal) and with an external source of CO2 the efficiency of Carbon easily doubles. You'll be pleased to know that there is now a way to dump lime. It a bit...

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.16

On marathon mode however, mineral sludge crystallization is twice as expensive, giving only 47 saphirite at 5.74 MJ/ore (the mineral water setup still produces the same). This makes mineral water better for making saphirite and stiratite on marathon. Aah, that'll be why I'm seeing mineralised water...
