Re: How to calculate assembling time?

Just for reference, the mining speeds of different tools: iron axe: 2.5 steel axe: 4.0 burner drill: 2.5 electric drill: 3.0 There's still something off with the math, for example coal mined with an electric drill should take 2 / (3.0 - 0.9) = 0.952381 (what unit? seconds? probably not ticks), whic...

Re: How to calculate assembling time?

Very interesting, thanks for the clarification. I'd have thought the mining hardness was a factor by itself. Also, I just noticed that copper, iron and coal have a hardness of .9, only stone has a hardness of .4, so the actual mining time is the same for all resources that are needed in a large qua...

Re: How to calculate assembling time?

About the mining hardness vs mining time: Every tool or drill has mining speed. Every tick when mining, the amount of mined is (MiningSpeedOfTool - HardnessOfMaterial). The item is mined, when the mined amount reaches the mining time of the item. Items that have low hardness and big mining time wil...

Re: scenario-pack/supply scenario - need help

Is the alien science pack so problematic? You just need to get 5 alien artefacts, that is one or two alien shelters. Getting 5 alien artifacts would be possible, but in order to get alien science packs I would need to research Alien Technology and Advanced Chemistry, which costs total 375 science p...

indicator for mines that ran out of deposits

I would like to see an indicator showing that mine has run out of deposits.
It is really hard to see which burner extractors don't have any more deposits and have to be removed :/

Re: scenario-pack/supply scenario - need help

Interesting ... I used electric mining drills from early levels, I will try it once more and look if it needs some balancing. I'm using one little trick, for example if you put two burner mining drills on coal next to each other then they will both supply coal to each other until both have 64 coal ...

Re: How to calculate assembling time?

Maybe it just refers to the amount of damage your pick will sustain by manually mining it (and possibly the energy consumption of the mining drill). It probably does, I will check that later. I'll also check what the mining speed is when using a pixaxe as well. Mining hardness may also affect the a...

Re: How to calculate assembling time?

Hmm. I just made a test comparing stone and iron mining speed and I didn't notice any difference.
I'm not sure what "mining hardness stands for". Besides, every resource has "mining speed = 2" property.

Re: How to calculate assembling time?

Oh, that's easy. I make an assumption that 1 Basic Inserter moves 1 item every 1s (in reality it's 1 item every 1.2s) and base all of my equations based on relative speed. All factories produce 1 item every 1s. There are some exceptions, for example copper wires and basic belts are produced in pairs...

Re: scenario-pack/supply scenario - need help

After a few tries I managed to get to lvl 20 xD

However, I doubt I will be able to finish it, because the requirements are just too high for me :/
I could finish it if those 50 alien science packs weren't required :/

Did anyone manage to finish this scenario?
After a few tries I manages to to get to level 18, but I'm unable to get any further.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

I know that I can use mixer every time I alt-tab the game, but it is really annoying to do. I think that I'll just turn off the music alone from the game menu and just leave the sfx on. Besides, is there any reason to listen to the game music while I'm not playing it? It is really annoying for me to...

mute the game while alt-tabbed

Is there any way to mute the game while I alt-tab the game ? Or maybe even pause the game as well at the same time? Every time when I want to do some other stuff I have to close the game, because the music keeps playing even though the game runs in the background. It is so annoying :/ I think that I...
