Re: UPS-optimized green circuits benchmarking

i tried to have a closer look to understand what makes which build more UPS friendly. but i can't find an obvious reason. the second most ups friendly version (Nilaus - Megabase in a book) has more (or equal) of everything but is way more UPS friendly than my design. i don't get it. i'm actually cur...

Re: regarding my blueprints and other neat things

Sorry for the late answer... I made an edit to the red chip build. Now there are only prod modules in the machines[...] I've added another version of the red circuit production with only prod modules and full belt consumption of plastic/green circuits. But good to see new/advanced designs! Awesome b...

Re: regarding my blueprints and other neat things

the reactor is meant to be printed on top of water, thats why it includes landfill.

i didn't wanted to use waterfill or something similar, as it would have included mods.

nice edit... good to see other work on those bps as well ;-) fitting design, inserter throughput is fine, beacons are enough... i don't see any problems, good job but i couldn't help myself but to fiddle around :roll: : top: design by causa-sui bottom: my nitpicking 'enhancement' edited red circuits...

Re: Single-combinator reactor clock w/auto start, accomodates other logic.

i've made something like this at my reactor, i just use steam as the 'blocking condition'.
further details in the reactor section of this post.

but you found a really nice stand alone setup ;-)

Re: regarding my blueprints and other neat things

all my bps use either 2-4-0 or 2-8-0 trains, so 2 locomotives and 4 or 8 cargo/fluid wagons. this explains the gap you mentioned. both locomotives face in the same direction, this will increase train acceleration by a large amount. and for design of train stations... thats completely your decision a...

regarding my blueprints and other neat things

introduction over the last couple of years i published various late- or endgame blueprints. i just wanted a central place to discuss questions and explain some of the things i created. of course i'm open for enhancements, other refinements and points of view. i'm still working on most of the bps, a...

Re: Balanced Fluids Train Station

this is my take on that subject: balanced fluid station.png the content of each pair of tanks will be translated into a number, the pumps compare those numbers and even out the tank content (only when fluid>500 ). this will not work perfect when the demand (for unloading stations) or supply (for loa...

Re: Big rocket fuel production. Can someone?

if you prefer it modular and multi purpose, have a look at this:

The Refinery

the rocketfuel module produces ~675 rocketfuel/minute and can be stacked.

Re: Smart Station for outposts

Hah, nope. At the moment the station disabled any loading train leaves it immediately, so it will leave unfull. Tried that. They once made it this way, but repatched it back in. I'm using circuit controled trainstations aswell and its working just fine. Maybe it has something to do with the wait co...

Re: high throughput stacker & station

its always a compromise for space and throughput (or productivity), in search for good or best efficiency. i think 4 car trains (with 2 locos) have a good combination of cargospace and acceleration. and yes, my thought was to create a generic trainstop to plop down and do some (combinator-) settings...

Re: high throughput stacker & station

this stacker/system will only make sense if you have a large station with multiple train stops (>= 2 different train stop names) and more than one item to unload (eg [iron] [iron] [copper] [copper]). for stations with multiple train stops and only one train stop name (=same item) to unload it wont m...

high throughput stacker & station

i was looking for a solution to increase the train throughput of (big) stations. this is where i found out that the part between stacker and the trainstops itself and the station exits were the bottleneck most of the time. i fiddled around a little bit and came up with this: 0eNrtXVtyGzm23EoHv0UFHge...
