"goldilocks" worlds

My biggest struggle with Factorio is finding the perfect world, a small lake, a big source of iron, copper and coal, and a source of stone, my problem is the sources are to small, mashed together or one is missing, im just wondering if any one has found the "perfect world"

Re: Peace with Aliens

You're clearly an evil eldritch abomination that conjures nonsense machinery that shouldn't work but does out of nowhere and rapes their planet for your own amusement. It's not even about "I have to build a rocket to leave" anymore, it's all about a perverted high score of "how much ...

Re: I need help with Steel Production

Ironically the throughput when I run the steel into my factory breaks it all down so I might need to split it into two lines, one that goes through the factory the second refills it for the main bus

I think productivity modules are useless though, They take for ever and only produce 1 extra piece, It doesnt seem worth it to me

Re: I need help with Steel Production

A full yellow belt requires 234 stone furnaces or 117 electric or steel furnaces. Red and blue require more. Data from here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1wIexilsTFKRbMIWc1MOY5XaAOPwNEU0AGMbSTAwqa3Q/edit#slide=id.g186b5128a7_0_41 But I do not understand how an odd number of steel furnaces...

Re: Refinery problem

Tanks of heavy oil are almost full but not completely, the logical circuit are smart enough for that. Actually I have 19k heavy oil on the left group (the one which doesn't work) and light and gas are empty. 24k heavy oil on the right group, 24k light and 24 gas, all works fine for this group. I'm ...

Have you tried Expanding your storage for the oils? It will stop refining if you have no space for the oil

I need help with Steel Production

So I saw a video online talking about the ratios of Steel and they said you would need 236 electric or stone furnaces to get a full compressed belt of steel. :shock: BUT is there an easier way of having a compressed belt of steel? It would really help my factory out if it got a compressed belt of it...

Re: Performance optimization - post your saves

The game runs pretty good on my potato, lags a bit with all my factories but that's to be expected the Major lag hit is when I zoom out or i'm by a group of trees. :( last time I checked with the f5 (or 6 idk) key I got about 23fps as an average thats fine though, it goes down to 3 fps around trees....

Let's Talk about the Bitters A.I

I'm not sure if it's just me, but they seem like they have the ability to learn from how the player plays the game. like I only get attacked by spitters and they stand just out of range of my turrets and spit at them then move in when there destroyed or like I destroy bases with the tank and at firs...

Re: I need help compressing belts

That's because you're splitting one line of belts into two, so each can have only 50% of the resources the compressed belt had. In some places, you're spitting it into even more than two belts. In addition to that, your assemblers use iron, so it can't be fully compressed. You can make it more comp...

I need help compressing belts

It's a mess I know, but you see how the Iron belt is compressed then goes to being dotted along the belts, if anyone could help me so it stays compressed and also goes to where it needs to go the would be perfect!
