Re: Friday Facts #363 - 1.1 is getting close

Awesome ! Could we also get an option to change the zoom level which changes from normal view to map view? +1 Even on maximum zoom out, it's a bit tricky to see biter nests south of you in time (aka before you trigger an attack), as the quickbars "hide" them even longer. Perhaps we could ...

GUIDE: get the "There is no spoon"-achievement like a real man, on 100% default settings!

Would you like to get the "There is no spoon"-achievement like a real man, on 100% default settings? (Biters ON, default resources) In the past months I've been designing, refining and optimizing a step-by-step guide, defining a build order that will work on most to all default maps on def...

Re: Friday Facts #359 - Crash site: The beginning

This is the perfect opportunity to change the start from 8 iron plates to --->>> 9 iron plates start <<<--- Isn't the 8 plates start just an obsolete artifact which allowed you to craft 2 pickaxes to start off with? With 9 iron plates, a new player could mine a big rock and immediately build a 2nd b...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

I forgot to include my own design, which makes use of one of those 6000 water/s 'super pump' combiners. It's half of the contraption in the screenshot below, which shows 2 6000/s pumps combining into 1 12000/s pump. (fun fact, infinity pipes do not consume 12000/s each, you need 2 of them to consume...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

Yeah, it's taking longer than expected, basically my first priority is keeping my weekly series going which atm consumes (more than) all of my available time, and I really had to finish the Landblock map first, so I could delete the raw files to free up hard drive space. Anyway, all submitted bluepr...

Re: Train stop on 2-way train track 'overrides' chain signals? [solved]

@disentius, can you add a 4th and a 5th train to that system? it's impossible for 3 trains to gridlock the system, as there is room on either side for 3 trains. The rail signal seems placed correctly, it makes the first bay look into the 2nd bay, and if its free the train can depart. (edit: it's the...

Train stop on 2-way train track 'overrides' chain signals? [solved]

So I have this 2-way train network with 'passing bays' below, with a train stop on either end, the trains are driving between those two train stops. This network works correctly, as in no train ever drives on the 2-way track before the next 'passing bay' is free, preventing gridlocks. . . In the scr...

Lol, it took me only 5,5 years of forum membership to lose my "burner inserter" status It's easy to have those mods, and they probably won't mess with any fluid mechanics, though because of the word "probably" I try to keep it to vanilla (so far less than 10 designs have been sub...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

Zillard, you can send the blueprint via pm, it'd be cool to check it out anyway. I guess in a 'real' world you could landfill over your pumps too, although if you ever accidentally deconstruct one you're screwed, so because of that (and to keep the playing field even with the other submissons) I'm i...

@Zillard: "then i read you can place an offshore pump, and landfill around it." --> That is exactly NOT what I said, but what I want to prevent! (This makes it difficult to actually put down the blueprint, especially if you landfill around the pumps and build other stuff where the water su...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

My reactor runs slighly different too every time I move/replace something. Also the identical mirrored right side runs different than the left side. It may have something to do with the order things are placed/stacking rounding errors/dividing odd numbers into 2 parts. Anyway, it not has been a prob...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

coppercoil, could you pm me the blueprint with the exact MW you get on 0.17?

I'll then test in in 0.18 and see if there is a difference

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

Game version, yeah good one. I'm on 0.18, so that's going to be the choice since I'll need to run the tests. So far all designs entered have run their claimed MW in my 0.18.12, if there will be a submitted design which has a different output than mentioned, I'll update the game. Unless a new experim...
