Re: Simple 3-combinator memory cell - handles bursts+negatives

The case I was using this for is the cell only accepting values that are bigger than the already saved value and forwarding the value. But never accepting values lower than the stored one. I tried some different approaches but never got a satisfying result. I think a (this) cell would be my best sho...

Re: Configuration & usage

I'm using F.A.R.L. since my early Factorio days. I know how to lay Solar farms and bot-based factory strips with it. So i thought I know my way around. Right now, I think my F.A.R.L. got a little confused. As you do, I was loading the blueprint for 4L (two in same direction on one side of the pole) ...

Re: Friday Facts #250 - Dead end conclusion

First of all, yet another great addition to come. At least as a concept. It definitely needs some thinking. A lot of good ideas already have been given by the community. But especially two are very concerning to me! The blueprint library button will be disabled until bots are researched[...] What th...

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

OH MY GOD! I'm so excited! The GUI looks amazing with the 'directional flowing buttons'! I got to admit... I let the game rest for quite some time. I even stopped(!!) reading the FFF. And all this while wearing my Factorio T-shirt... Right now? I'm hyped. I'm sooooo hyped. The dark grey, the nice s...

Re: Friday Facts #238 - The GUI update (Part II)

Re: Friday Facts #212 - The GUI update (Part 1)

I really like the way the GUI is developing. The preview looks promising!!! As you rework the looks anyways, can we request also additions? I got one on my mind I'd really love to see. I'd like to be able to view the content of the wagons in an additional tab on the train screen. like the fuel-tab a...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Compression Chests: virtually unlimited storage

Yes I know this thread is over 3 month old still I would like to push it. Can we please have a port to .15 and as it is almost 'round the corner one for .16, too? I used this mod a lot with other mods, pre-mining ores and taping the box when I need additional ores. Also a great storage for wood. Ple...

It looks like a bug. [...] I found a little work around to calculate what you need. [...] Thanks! Appreciate that! Though, it seems unnecessary complicated.

Re: [MOD 0.15.x]Helmod: Assistant to plan its base.

This balancing thing always gets me.... Take a look at the picture, dear Helfima. At blue (1) I tried to balance my lube production with what 8 refineries with adv. oil cracking. It's 48 heavy what i get. As lube to heavy is 1:1 i get 48 lube as output. Step 1 done! At red (2) there are left overs f...

Re: [MOD 0.15.x]Helmod: Assistant to plan its base.

Is there any way to start from an input instead of an output? Say, as an example, I have 100 crude/s. I want to know how many red chips I can make with that, and what other raw materials I'll need. There is now way to do that right now. You have to balance your red chips production (or rather the p...

Re: [0.15] SolarFarm -> perfect ratio + tileable + robo port

With your 14 substations, you could cover 14x18x18=4536 tiles. Your blueprint contains 196 solar panels (9 tiles) + 165 accus (4 tiles) + 14 substations (4 tiles) + one roboport (9 tiles). Total : 2489 (I purposefully didn't count the big power pole) You have too many substations for the area you'r...

[0.15] SolarFarm -> perfect ratio + tileable + robo port

Hi guys, after some fiddling I want to show of my design for a Solar Farm for version 0.15.X. Although solar might be out of date because of the recent addition of Nuclear Power to the game, for sure there are some people out there still using solar for remote mining (like me) or early replacement o...

Re: 0.15 - solar panels & accumulators

As I got annoyed by the fact that I had to place all the solar panels on my own, I tried to design a solar farm with robo-port integration. Here is what I came up with. For sure not optimal space use and also not hitting the ratio (0.86 instead of 0.84) but quite good for a start. Please go ahead an...

Re: 0.15 - solar panels & accumulators

After not so long of a fiddling, IMHO this is a fair solution. Without the robo-port integration but two robo-ports in your power armor (one is not enough as shown), you can comfortably walk next to the blueprint and all tiles will be reached. Replace one accumulator near the edge with a big pole an...
