Re: Late-earlygame coal gasification plant

I should have said "almost".
Still, turning 100 cold coke oven gas into 95 hot coke oven gas is a massive boost.
Now just need to find a good way to replace the lost power from not burning that gas (and converting that coal), lol !

Re: Late-earlygame coal gasification plant

How do you get Helmod to show power output, by the way? I've not yet encountered that feature. Use the "Select energy" button. (Looks like an IRL atomic plant's cooling tower.) Thing is, coal dust is a byproduct of making hot coke oven gas from coal... well until the Heat Exchanger, which...

Re: Late-earlygame coal gasification plant

As you can see, I'm not. In my case at least, the coke versions of combustion mixtures are quite inefficient : https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?p=538403#p538403 (Especially after unlocking coke oven gas ?)

Re: pY Petroleum Handling

Not an outrageous amount : IIRC mk1 with drilling fluid 1 took me like a quarter of an hour to drill for natgas with 1 of every building ?

Also : potentially an exploit : natural gas derrick doesn't (directly) pollute, so biters ignore it !
(Though this should be in this thread I guess ?)

Re: Best mods that don't affect vanilla too much?

In the already mentioned Picker Inventory Tools, auto-limiting :
- wooden chests to 1 stack
- iron chests to either 2, 5, or 10 stacks (I like 10 stacks for 100 barrels.)

Pretty much the opposite from the Lazy Bastard achievement, while still keeping full control (unlike with HandyHands). https://mods-data.factorio.com/assets/521e18c38734c96edd9b733dd4fa8aac72545b68.png HotCraft (directly handcraft items by hotkey) Directly handcraft items from your inventory or tool...

Re: Alt-F4 #34 - How Did We Get Here?

The Mechanized Assault & Exploration (M.A.X.) games (1 : 1996 and 2 : 1998) could potentially have been an inspiration : in them you have to mine metals, oil and gold, and then all of these resources, including fuel and ammo need to be physically transported to their destination via units with c...

Late red science (poor alien samples, cDNA) for Kicalk. Thanks, I had helmoded composting raw fiber and cellulose from kicalk, but forgot the plants and seeds themselves ! In any case, they still have *terrible* performance in pY Pol&E (at least before fertilizer ?) : unlike for guar and fawogae...

Re: [pY AL] Composting for Biomass

Relevant changes from that mod : - Raw fuels like Wood, Coal and Crude Oil now pollute more while processed fuels pollute less. This should motivate players to build advanced processing chains. - Combustion Turbine rebalancing. - Balancing of Biomass - it should not be the best fuel in the game Vers...

Well, certainly *not* phytoplankton from iron ! Wood/Logs and moss also don't seem particularly good IIRC. I've been helmoding a lot biomass lately, and ( assuming the unofficial py pollution and energy mod ) the best at "early" green science still seems to be the (red science) guar, (whic...

Because then you might need less of those HUGE composters- (Why do you torture us so, couldn't you have made a reasonable-sized one, like with the ash burner ? :cry: ) -like it's the currently the case for guar / guar bean seeds / guar gum, (might be different without the unofficial pY energy & ...

[pY AL] Composting for Biomass

There's a (kind of) duplicate recipe showing up for Ralesia composting : ['ralesia'] = {item_amount = 10, biomass_amount = 20}, and ['ralesias'] = {item_amount = 5, biomass_amount = 2}, Both show up in the pYcyclopedia, Helmod and WiiRUF, but only the first one seems to be used by the composter ?
