Re: Fluids are killing me

Just think of tanks as large pipes instead of large storage vessels. Fluid is distributed evenly through all connected pipes (including tanks). So if you have 50/100 units in a pipe you will have 12500/25000 in a connected tank ... over time. Use pumps to push fluids from one pipe network to the nex...

Re: Train horn - warn the user about bumping

It would be awesome if you could wire up a real air horn to the game so that when a train is about to kill you in game a 160 decibel air horn sounds behind your head and you stroke out irl.

Suggestion: The ability to zoom in on blueprints for editing

TL;DR Blueprints are great; editing them is a hassle; zooming would help. What ? Once you create a blueprint, editing is quite tedious. It would help if it was possible to zoom in on a blueprint while you are editing. Screenshot (120).png Why ? In the image you can see my cousin's city block; it's ...

I bought the game for my son,but he entered the wrong email address

So my son finally decided to try the demo, and immediately loved the game. So I gave him my cc and told him to make the purchase. In his excitement he entered the wrong email address. He sent an email to support. Is there anything else I should/can do?

Re: Nerf the Portable Fusion Reactor?

Is uran a shortened form of uranium or a misspelling of urine?

I agree with one of these.

Re: How do I blueprint mining outposts if I can only place miners on ore?

I will highly recommend using a tile-able mining blueprint using the snap to grid feature. It solves all of your problems with placement. And due to miners NOT placing on non-ore locations you don’t have to submit a feature request for miners placed by blueprints not to place on non-ore locations.

Re: Use of active provider chests

dump the items in a random storage chest. That's not exactly what they do. They make sure that the provider chest is always emptied. Rather than staying in the chest. Where the material ends depends on the other chests. If you have requester chests dealing with it then it's not going to storage If ...

Re: a efficient setup for the kovarex process

Your English is not terrible, but your ratios are way off. You need 40 u235 and 5 u238 for Kovarex processing.

Edit: I think your ratio is referring to Uranium Fuel cell production. (1 u235: 19 u238)

Re: Cannot connect compatible liqids

You have different liquids in the pipes. Use the red x to drain the fluid from the pipes or remove them and replace them.

I know that you are saying to yourself “NO I DON’T” but, yes ... you do. Follow my instructions and it will work.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

The target range of the nuke for “shoot target” is somewhat greater than spitter range. I usually stand at long range and search for a target while inching toward the enemy. Eventually you’ll see the targeting reticle.

Also, take another look at your train loading. It’s usually best to use one or two full belt(s) per train wagon.

Sorry for the late response but I just saw this post. This sounds like a perfect use for my train operated potentiometer. See if this gives you the functionality you require.
