Using mass amounts of water with Large Nuclear Build

So in my previous games I have used a water fill mod to help with water and large nuclear builds. This most recent build, I have gone modless so that is not an option. I am using about 4 GW of energy, so it is quite a bit of water needed. I am at the point where I am going to move from steam power t...

Factorio Gear Pendant?

So I have been wondering if Factorio would consider making the gear logo a gold pendant that people could put on a necklace. Truly, it might be my favourite game of all time and I would love to wear that kind of thing. It would be unique and simple. I have looked around, and not seen anything like t...

Re: [MOD 0.17.x] SunResources

I am able to place resources. However, when I try to change one resource to another with the "check copper" tool, for instance, I get an error and the game crashes.

So I normally use the standard bus that you see with 4 lanes, 2 spaces, 4 lanes, 2 spaces, etc. I still pull from my main bus the way I did before 0.16 to keep the bus balanced. Now, I see on YouTube play throughs, that most people pull from the main bus and balance with 4 staggered splitters. I ass...

Re: My guide to "There is no spoon" (15.X version)

This is such good information. I have just got the 2 achievements left, There is no Spoon and No Time for Chit Chat. I will say, it amazes me, that by looking at both of the pics of seeds here, that you only need 2 yellow belts of iron and copper to complete this, is that right? I haven't done the m...

Re: [MOD 0.16.x] Whistle Stop Factories

It is definitely a brilliant idea. I love the idea of building your entire world around these small factories and smelters and refineries. However, when I tried it, I found that the amount of throughput just wasn't worth it. I ended up getting out about a yellow belt of iron plates when feeding iron...

Transition to main base/bus area

So I generally use RSO to generate resources. My typical start is to create a small starter base/bus with my initial resources. I get red, yellow and military science up and running and get red belts and steel furnaces and power poles. The initial resources are never enough to get my main base and m...

Re: [0.16.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

I think that Red and Blue belts scale better. I do agree that the increased cost of Yellow belts seems a bit much. I did just start over again and it made the start significantly tougher and longer than normal. Possibly because I started in an area with few trees, which made pollution worse. It took...

Re: Starting new game, question

Bob's mods are fine and not that more complicated as vanilla. Oil setups are the same, you just have more options like sulfurisation. The most ores go into smelters like iron and copper, some plates are a mix of 2 other plates - so not that hard. The Bob's Enemies mod make the biters a bit more dan...

Starting new game, question

So, I have completed the game vanilla and adding a few mods, but nothing that adds complexity. I was thinking about trying a Bob's run. I know that a full on Bob's and Angel's game can be quite complex and overwhelming. I am not sure I am ready for that yet. I have heard that if I just start a Bob's...

Re: Coal Liquefaction vs Oil?

There are a couple questions to ask, is water close enough to not be a pain? And also will the coal patch outlast the uranium (math time)? If not, then the oil patch gets bonus points. I use a waterfill mod (a little cheaty?), so water won't be an issue. And I think that both the coal and the oil w...

Coal Liquefaction vs Oil?

So, I haven't crunched the math. I have just discovered a fairly large uranium deposit and will start my uranium process about 15 hours into my current base. It is quite far from my oil production, so piping in Sulfuric Acid isn't realistic. However, there is a large patch of coal, a small patch of ...

Re: Question on landfill

I use a mod called Nicefill. It does a pretty good job of filling with the same type of texture of land around it. And I am notorious for literally using millions of landfill to fill my water spots.

As it is now, I have turned the volume of alerts down so I don't hear the logistic alerts, however, sometimes I m...

Any change will potentially drive people away. That by itself is not a good argument in favor of not changing it.

For belts. Something else I think would help for consideration. Allow blue belt undergrounds to be able to weave with other blue belt undergrounds. You could have, in a line, B1 underground, B2 underground, B1 underground, and B2 underground. The B1 undergrounds are all connected to each other, but ...
