Re: Kovarex Enrichment | Inserters

Just to point it out - If you're dead set on X centrifuges and definitely absolutely don't want to use circuits or other logic, one solution would be to feed the centrifuges with a 1 to X balancer and give each centrifuge it's own incoming u-235 line. It's not how I would go about it, but it's an op...

Re: bot just hovers above roboport for no reason

Satisfaction: 0/100 On-the-way: 0 Logistic Storage: 1000 I'm inclined to think that this is a mod issue as I haven't experienced behaviors like that before. It's actually not a bug and happens with the vanilla game. The 1000 items in logistic storage are in buffer chests, and so the bots aren't wil...

Re: bot just hovers above roboport for no reason

I don't know if this is your situation or not, but the only time I've seen bots do that is when they're out of space in the roboports to land/fit in. Yeah, that's what I thought at first too. It's not the case here though. At the very start of the video file, there's a hovering robot. Player adds a...

Re: bot just hovers above roboport for no reason

That is a construction bot. Check the construction alerts in the bottom right, is something missing materials? Even if there is, that suggests a bug. Con bots aren't supposed to launch until they have a job *and* can reserve the materials to do the job. Looks to me like the bot thinks there's no av...

Re: How do you all explore the map?

This is the way I generally go about it. Your mileage may vary. Pre rocket launch, I just push out with the tank or spidertron and use it to clear the area when I want to claim something. Post rocket launch - I like to have a certain level of artillery range upgrades. 6 or so. I'll mark on the map w...

I guarantee that the pipe you laid did not block the base from absorbing pollution. If that base stopped absorbing pollution, it was because of other factors.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Yeah, I like using the decon planner as a filter for completely blocking the output of a splitter too. For this specific application where I want to jam just one output lane though, rocks are pretty much just always on hand at a build site and if they aren't wood will be.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

The other method i think would imply splitter priority so that you overflow 1 lane only with things like fish to block it behind that splitter. I don't know how to do with only 1 rock. We're probably thinking about the same thing. I misspoke though, it's actually 3 rocks. Or you know, any ol' junk....

I would miss that behavior even though i'm not using it "all the time" , not every cases where i use it can be easily replaced if the limit was set internally to 0, i find it useful to have the choice between the 2 behavior. I can give 2 very simple and one *slightly* more complex use cas...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

So let's say you have a belt with the same type of goods on both lanes. You want to send one lane of those goods, and *only* that lane of goods to a destination. Both lanes being 100% full is not guarenteed. Is using an underground still the main way of going about this? I'm thinking yes but wanted ...

Re: [1.1.69] Trains get stuck if the destination is disabled and other are full

When using the station limit you should not disable stations. Instead reduce the station limit to 0. That's pretty much the answer, though it's noteworthy that there's a useful exception if you're following that rule - You can disable a station in the situation that it's a station with a single tra...

Wow, it seems you plan for a planet wide deforestation, given the amount of boilers. Is this really necessary? You may underestimate the wood drain of a single boiler (or a few boilers) running continuously, without pause. I think I usually have roughly the same amount of them as you do in your pic...

Re: [1.1.69] Trains get stuck if the destination is disabled and other are full

will just get rid of the enable/disable entirely for 1.2 (it will be replaced with internally forcing limit to 0). There will be no longer "skip schedule record" behavior. Oh god, please don't do that. Especially not without talking to a lot of rail addicts about it first. I use that feat...

Re: what settings are you going to play when the expansion is released?

I prefer a railworld/deathworld hybrid with lowest frequency, and large size/richness. This is what I usually like too. Sometimes I'll tune the terrain settings a bit if I'm in the mood for something specific. If I'm after a more relaxed game or I want to build really big, I'll combine railworld wi...

Re: Following Trains on Single Track Lines With Prototype Demo

Just a small note here - I found a small and difficult to spot bug in the logic used to force direction switching when things are queued up. This logic bug will sometimes let more than the configured number of trains through before switching direction under certain specific conditions. Doesn't overr...

Re: Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.

I don’t disagree, but I do wonder about old saves/logs/SS from at the least resolved bug reports from pre-1.0, or just old saves from 0.12/0.13/etc. In the grand scheme it might not be a lot, but sometimes every little bit can help. Yeah, IMHO, you gotta draw a line somewhere. If you don't, you end...
