Re: My Deathworld Marathon Factory

IIRC it was not only the extra techs and sulfur that made explosives expensive for me, but also the required skin ?

Re: My Deathworld Marathon Factory

Wow, super impressive, congrats ! You *can* deal with blue biters by forcing them to despawn and/or using a sacrificial turret/radar.

Re: Alt-F4 #60 - Burning Questions

Great Article, and especially, great diagrams ! 0.) I tend to do my power chains in Helmod (now that the power calculations have been mostly fixed ) with 1 GW in mind (for the nice conversion 1 GW = 1 GJ/s, the default Helmod time interval being 1s), unless maybe if I'm doing «Ingredient input» chai...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Well, ideally, either :
- this recipe shouldn't be available without FE
- this building should be available without FE
- this recipe should use another building without FE : looks like it used to be the washer, but it doesn't have enough fluid inputs ?

This is great news !

[Suggestion] Switch Niobium and Multipurpose Pipes

Currently, the more advanced Multipurpose pipes are functionally better in every way than the Niobium pipes. (And are also cheaper !) Sadly, they : - don't look nearly as great, - are awkward in terms of figuring out which direction they are pointing, and to distinguish underground and regular pipes...

Re: Mods updatable on startup

Frankly I'd love an option to start in "check mods mode" where all it does is check for mods that could be upgraded and offer the upgrade. I mean, you have to restart anyway so why spend all that time loading graphics and stuff that won't get used? But +1 to this. It's a pain as-is and wo...

Thanks a lot ! (My nullius game folder is on another PC, I'll have to check that specific one later...)
