Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

I've been advise that wood->cellulose->lignin is a reasonable way. So far it seems to bear out. It still requires a relatively large pile of composters, but it looks like that will improve soon. The soil separation recipe may also work out well. Regarding just the number of composters, and ignoring ...

Re: Biomass/CO2

That does appear to be closer to the right ballpark. Still a bit convoluted, and 8+ composters to run that is still a bit less than ideal for scaling, but it ought to do for now.

Biomass/CO2

What's the most reasonable way to generate these after most of the biomass recipes got moved to the composter? Previously most of my CO2 came from biomass, either via phytoplankton or wood. Neither of those is particularly workable now. Aiming at a rather conservative 4 HPFs (18k CO2/m), which would...

Yeah, after readjusting things so the raw coal wasn't knocked down to 25% chance it showed up fine.

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

which is nice and reasonable, just not listed in the changelog at the time =P I was trying to use the settings from otaku showboat's stream, which knocked raw coal down to almost nothing. Had to dig into the github commit log to figure out why I wasn't getting anything burnable on the ground. I thin...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

After spending a couple of hours with rolling RSO spawns and getting no coal, PSA:

the most recent change pushed in a change that removes "coal" from the spawns, forcing the immediate start to require raw coal distillation.

do not reduce raw coal to trace amounts, or you will have a bad time

Re: Py Beginner advice - map settings / bus

Recent LTNs should be kind enough to not require circuit 2's (one of the early 0.17 ones loosened up that requirement for bobs & py), so there shouldn't be a huge gap between vanilla railroads and LTN anymore. Pre-rails, it's whatever you can do to get to rails. Fluid multi-requests are probably a s...

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

a pass over things to set catalyst_amount on the input & output, to exclude them from productivity is probably due for a few things. The FFF suggested it would compute that automatically, but that probably only detects cases where it's the same item across them.

Re: pY Petroleum Handling

They were hidden by default before, so FNEI wouldn't necessarily show them without tweaking the settings.

Hot bricks are made in an advanced foundry or other furnace, 10 stone brick -> 10 hot stone brick, so it is a closed loop and not a bottomless maw that hungers for planets worth of stone

Re: Py Beginner advice - map settings / bus

Can't really speak to the map settings bit, as I tend to stick to seablock style things. I've had good results mid-game with a block based LTN network running on trains and spaghetti, with 1-2 trains and lots of multi provider stations. Previous run I used 3x3 chunk blocks with a 1 chunk border betw...

Re: Why can I convert iron to energy?

thought I replied to this one...

sticks are used to break up the ground into stone
stone gets cooked into tar products
it'd be nice if the soil could get cooked directly, but that would be too easy

Re: pY Petroleum Handling

The sand -> rich dust and tailings dust->rich dust are SP1 only, but rich dust -> chromite recipe is unlocked by coal processing 2, which needs a total of about 170 SP2 to unlock. Tailings -> tailings dust is coal processing 2 as well. You can get small amounts from tailings->nexelit, but that needs...

Re: Deadlocks Stacking for Pyanodons mods

the entry for molybdenite-dust in migrations/shared.lua is wrong, it is { item = "molybdenite-dust", item = nil, stage = 1 }, and should be { item = "molybdenite-dust", icon = nil, stage = 1 }, it's setting the item slot to nil, and then passing that nil in to deadlock_crating.create(), which explod...

Re: What is "raw coal"?

it's a form of coal that needs a bit of processing, where each step tends to produce some byproducts + regular coal, with more along the way each time. It came in with PyRawOres. It comes from either raw coal patches on the ground, which RSO may not be spawning, or mined from coal reserves with the ...

Re: I need help creating iron plates!

That nitrobenzene recipe is more of a mid/late-game one for utilizing an excess of nitrobenzene, or to generate a pile of oxide in a hurry for other things. Early on, your main source of oxide will be byproducts of coke and coal gas production. The oxide->plate recipe is more of a handy way to get r...

Re: PyBlock (alpha)

I'll forward over the control.lua changes later. The alien biomes and space exploration bits would be above and beyond expectations.

and the changes to the autoplace settings absolutely break the planet generation for space-exploration, so that's going to need some further investigation

Yeah, it took a fair bit of trial and error to get it to generate right, especially with the extra headache of alien biomes from space-exploration. Just turning off autoplace was not enough, had a lot of hilarity when I either missed some tiles from biomes, and some more later when it started using ...

Added oil-mk04, tar-patch,...
