Re: Why are 60 UPS = 1s?

You can change it to 50 ups by typing the following into console: /c game.speed=5/6. Note that this will also affect fps. As far as the engine is concerned with respect to in-game time passing per tick and units (as a result), there are still 60 ticks per second. All the console command does is tel...

Re: How to fix module balance

I thought we were in agreement here that productivity modules are obscenely overpowered. I never agreed to that. I think efficiency modules are underpowered but producticity are well balanced with the amount of speed that is available andthe current recipes. Here's what I said earlier: It rebalance...

Re: How to fix module balance

The main reason to use them would be to stretch the supply of a scarce resource on maps without a general abundance of all resources. So what about speed and efficiency? 4xSpd3 in Assem 3s gives +200% speed=300% speed in total for +280% energy consumption=380% of base energy consumption. You can ge...

Re: Enemies on Very Low, Very Small, Very Poor…

Do you think by testing I was standing by a nest and used console to change the settings, and then expected the nest to change before my eyes? How stupid do you think I am? What I did was I generated a map with one set of settings then started a new game with the same seed but different settings and...

Re: Enemies on Very Low, Very Small, Very Poor…

Maybe it somehow affects new settlements then, because it has no effect on the generated nests, even further out. I have tested and the nests are identical.

Only frequency affects biter bases. The other two settings work on everything else but not biter bases.

Re: How to fix module balance

Without beacons, you now actually have reasons to consider not just using prod in buildings, and then the idea of making energy efficient setups that are also fast (e.g. 3xEff3+1xSpd3) becomes something worth considering relative to prod modules. How would removing 8/12 modules affecting each assem...

Re: How to fix module balance

I think eff3 should have something like 5000% to make sure a single module, even in a beacon, will put the machine on it's lowest consumption level. BlakeMW's and two of my suggestions already do basically that, except it takes 2, not 1. First of all it's not 2 v 1. It's 2 v 1/2 (beacons only trans...

Only stop the player on a yellow signal. In all other cases stop the train instead.

Re: How to fix module balance

No matter how powerful the efficiency module becomes, you'll never think it's worth using. That's false. I have made a suggestion for buffing efficiency modules that I think would make them worth it in many situations: Efficiency needs more of a buff. I think eff3 should have something like 5000% t...

Re: How to fix module balance

I don't disagree with any of that. What I disagree with is that with my proposed changes, nobody would use efficiency modules, as you suggested. You have been suggesting that with my proposed changes, the modules are fundamentally unbalanced and that there is one optimal way to set them up. I disag...

Re: How to fix module balance

I'm not locked into anything, but if you disagree which of my reasons do you disagree with? Do you disagree that Factorio is about solving logistics problems? Do you disagree that all logistics problems are located in your factory and not in expanding solar? Do you disagree that building more compac...

Re: How to fix module balance

Ok, I didn't realize "output rate" was combined crafting speed and productivity. Still 35% better than the one with the 2 efficiency modules.

Re: How to fix module balance

The problem in Vanilla is that increased resource efficiency goes hand in hand with increased rate of output, and it's multiplicative so that the actual rate of output goes up much more than if you had only used speed modules. In vanilla you get diminishing returns already The first speed beacon yo...

Re: How to fix module balance

Once again you're using vanilla to base your argument. In my suggestion, rate of output is no longer linked to material efficiency. I don't think I am. I think I'm using your numbers, however maybe I'm missing something. If I'm wrong please explain how with your numbers switching out a speed module...

Re: How to fix module balance

No, you're locked into this idea that there's a certain amount of energy it costs to run your factory, because in vanilla that's how it is. I'm advocating for making the energy costs flexible. It's already flexible. You only suggested a buff to efficiency modules. It changes nothing. If I can place...

Re: Logistic Network Research

Robots solve any and all logistics problems. They "solve" the game, so to get them you have to first beat the game.

This is what bots turn your game into. https://i.imgur.com/jv0hQ6f.png There's no challenge building with bots at this level. Completely game breaking.
