Re: [0.16.15] Trains path trough their own occupied blocks

Yeah, exept it can and has caused issues with big trains looping in on themself when they could have avoided it if it recognised itself.
Fixing this would cause many roundabout bases to break...

[0.16.15] Trains path trough their own occupied blocks

A train does not respect normal train behaviour when a train blocks itself.

Note, it is a proper collision. Bots just repaired the damage.

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

Twinsen, I dont know if you're still reading this section but, why can you move UI elements? You can't build with UI open or have multiple instances of UI open. So, why can you move them?

Has anyone ever used this functionality?

Re: Friday Facts #161 - Infinite Research and Blueprint Library

For the pollution Map calculations: you might be able to further optimise it by dividing all the tiles chunks into 60 and always updating one of those chunks pieces. The Advantage is that you don't have to skip so many tiles chunks with each Access which should greatly improve Cache locality and th...

Re: Boiler Misbehaviour

I have found alot of weirdness in boilers/steam engines aswell, I have not had the time to post an elaborate bug report about it but what it comes down to is this: in the old version 1 pump, 14 boilers, 10 steam engines would heat the water up to 100 degrees and provide all steam engines with water ...

Re: possible bug with producivity modules

Is this only with oil? Because you can test it way more accurate with assemblers and items.

My guess is that it is due to rounding errors.

Re: [0.13.17]Train signal locking orange

This is not a bug, This is a design flaw. Only use regular signals at the end of a junction. Not at the start The intersection ran flawlessly for 40 minutes before locking when I tried recording the bug. It's not a design problem. Regardless of the position and type of my signals, a yellow signal m...

Looks like some wires got crossed somewhere in the code, the top right signal becomes reserved by error or out of sequence
Are you sure?

Re: Friday facts #151 - The plans for 0.14

Would love the nuclear update! its a good fit, we already have "easy to setup, low risk coal power" "Costly, lots of room, no risks solar panels." now we need something that consumes alot of power and generates alot of power for the ones that feel more lucrative.

Re: [Rseding91] [0.13.13] Watch your Step still not working

Do you or have you ever run mods on your save?

It might have something to do with experimental versions or commands you ran. However I have not kept up with whats allowed and not allowed for achievements.

Re: Friday Facts #133 - The train struggle

I had questions about the loader but I can defnitely live with that inserter, It closes the gap between bots and belts without being too OP or too easy to use.

I've always liked belts and inserters more than bots and this could bring inserters back.

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

Another increase in cargo wagon size? I feel like the 30 we have now is good enough (as in trains dont get too big to handle) but it all depends on what the advanced ore processing is going to do.

About the 'Loader", Pros: 1) High throughout support for belt loading/unloading. 2) Makes belts (and trains) more relevant in comparison to robots in the late game. 3) Train stations could be more compact and faster to build. 4) High capacity storage based on belts would be easier to build and more ...

As you can see a good design requires custom 4, 8 and higher balancers in order to avoid symmetry.
