Re: Pollution Induced Natural Disasters

I see the tornadoes/dust devils all the time, but their damage is negligible unless I'm polluting heavily with Nauvis Day cranking up the numbers even more.

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

I'm surprised it took until page 7 for the idea that inserters should lead their targets instead of chasing them. Teleport-grabbing items off the belt is not the answer for exact timing math and eking out UPS: loaders are. As to alt-view, the only time I don't have it turned on is when I'm alt-tabbi...

Re: [MOD 0.13] Black Market (sell and buy on the market)

Positive = sell, negative = buy (or vice versa) would also make a lot of sense. Wire your storage into a constant -10000 iron ore, and it would buy whenever you run low. 1 and >1, make sense too in terms of keeping the combinators simpler to start with, since you can just throw deciders with +1 as o...

Re: Challenge: maximum net energy from a blue belt of coal

Ok, I'm confused now. I was sure that beacons had half their consumption as drain and half as normal consumption. But I loaded up 0.16, and I don't see it there either. It looks like Beacons lost their extra 480kW drain between v0.15 and v0.16, and I've never noticed. That makes it far less useful. ...

Re: Challenge: maximum net energy from a blue belt of coal

I imagine it would likely cause trouble with the sandwiching, but what about threading small poles through the system to power the beacons separately? The working energy is claimed first, and drain gets any leftovers, but doesn't hurt if there is none. If you use an accumulator buffer to feed only h...

I've read through the thread just now, and there are still some things I don't understand: 1) Why do the devs feel that using Advanced oil processing in your refinery intended to be REQUIRED to launch a rocket?

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

That is not how evolution factor works; it is a simple number that mods/scripts can modify. Any mod can increase it or decrease it at will, as well as change the values the base game uses to manipulate it (ie change how much is added or subtracted based on certain events), which NVDay does.

Re: Removing fluid temperature - thoughts?

Personally, I like the idea of mixing fluids. I was running a setup that had 165° steam from solar boilers with a nuclear backup that would feed in 500° steam when the storage dropped too much, and feed in excess from the coolant cooling towers constantly. But I also had a system that would pump dif...

Re: Remove health bar status for rocks

It might just be a mod I'm using, but don't living trees slowly regenerate health so the bar goes away over time? I do end up having to clear the rocks away, but there are a lot fewer of them. It would probably also be more realistic if the rocks had some armor so that low speed collisions don't cau...

This behaviour is quite useful since boxes don't have filters, but as long as you don't take the last item in a slot, it is effectively filtered.

Re: Personal robots prioritizing nearest first

Suicide Junkie: so instead of one list you propose several lists and you do several times as much work, I'm not saying this is unfeasible but it's still more work and more bugs to track and there are conflicts, is the way you'd sort your build order the same as mine, I mean if I'm deconstructing th...

Re: Beacon on/off via circuit network

I'm mostly fine with them as-is. Having a logic toggle for the beacon which disables the effect propagation and energy consumption, but leaves the drain draw would be almost pointless IMO, since the drain is half the draw. The thing that bugs me is the startup and shutdown lag of the beacons when us...

Re: Improved Vehicle Control

Biasing the camera towards the direction of travel might be good too,along with the zoom out.
The faster you go, the less you care about stuff you've left in your dust and the more you care about the stuff coming up in front.

Re: Comprehensive power management

I used it for oil processing under Nauvis day to keep the pollution down; bursty power to get an efficiency + speed combo for minimum pollution per product, with solar input. Also for my over-unity rocket fuel production. That needs 7x speed + 4x productivity, but turns 100GJ of SF into ~115GJ of RF...

Re: Comprehensive power management

I set up some circuit logic to store a buffer of 6 steam level readings, and use that to get a MW draw value directly off an individual nuclear plant. There is also a steam lock, where I pump a tank to 100% full, then toggle the pumps over to pumping it into the main storage buffer. At the moment it...

Re: Why i will never play 0.17

Only having 5 hotbar slots instead of 10 takes some getting used to.

I end up having to use the main inventory a lot since I havent organized things yet.

Re: Uses for pollution producing modules?

that's actually a good idea. though modules can only be a multiplier, you can't have a module transform a negative pollution into positive. currently though, the greenhouse produces no pollution at all. While it can't be an inverter due to the -80% hard cap, we wouldn't need that. I meant that if g...

Re: Uses for pollution producing modules?

They could be useful in a beacon if greenhouses were set to produce negative (ie absorb) pollution when running. Even a small pollution removal rate could be jacked up by 1000% with the pollution modules. Perhaps they could amplify the effects of others when combined? Speed and productivity could be...

Re: Friday Facts #290 - Rail building changes & High-res icons

I for one use the rail planner mainly for obstacle avoidance, and secondarily to make connections between existing pieces of track.

When going to shred through the environment and replace all with the factory, blueprints are the way to go.
