Re: Solar farm with perfect ratio.

The more bitter attack you have the highest your ratio is. I find 0.9 being a good ratio to maintain. But it purely depends how you work in your factory. More accus only adds a safety cushion in case of exceptional "oops bad luck, I got a consumption spike out of nowhere, but I overall overproduce ...

Re: Friday Facts #317 - New pathfinding algorithm

A n-th level A* pathfinding is a good thing to have (I'm surprised it was not even already here).

What you could do to improve again this algorithm, is to go from 2 level of nodes to a 3 or 4 lvl node A* pathfinding. A power 2 scale or 3 should be a good (or a mix)

Re: Connecting radars to circuit and logistic networks

Idea to solve radar range issue and help with performance : * When a Radar finishes to scan his area and no enemies has been detected, it put's itself in "standby", using only 10% energy and stop trying to refresh all tiles. * If an enemy enters the radar zone, the stand-by mode stops (detected by ...

Re: Solar farm with perfect ratio.

Since your consumption of energy is not continuous and perfect, why should your providing ratio should be ? I try to do 1:0.9 to ensure I have enough accus, and due to laser consumption which is not intended nor predictable. Then you lack solar panels - on average - to recharge the accus. The thing...

Re: Solar farm with perfect ratio.

Personally i just build solar fields and accu fields seperately, i find that easier to expand. Accus <10% left after the night? -> more accus. Accus not 100% full before the night? -> more solars I prefer having one blueprint you can place and don't have to worry about power production again. You c...

Re: Belt speeds

The logical positions of items on a belt should be able to be made whatever arbitrary number is convenient. It can be any number we like, and we determined that 1/256 of a tile is enough for what belts need to do A Byte seems also pretty convenient for coding as I understand it ? You just have to i...

It's still zoom-to-cursor in map view, right?
Yes.

That wasn't clear ...
My apologies... :roll:

Changing how you zoom in the map would be a terrible idea. That was how I was understading "ghost and spectator mode".

FFS I think you were done with big changes and focusing on bug fixing/HD texture ?

Seriously, why the camera ??? It's the most important thing in the game and you just broke it. It's the first time I'm seriously pissed about an update.

[0.17.66] Hitbox Assembler+Tank

Hi,

Quick bug found : if you attach an assembler directly to a tank (like for unbarreling), you can still pass between the assembler and the tank, which you can't do with a pipe.

Probably not worth correcting, but still.

Sure it's annoying (I'm still trying to copy paste in vain ^^ ) for logistics, but battery is not that far from blue science and doesn't cost much. What cost a lot is rushing into blue + purple and producing processors at the same time. You need a dedicated part to produce enough green circuits. (An...
