Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Adding limit how many bots can access chests does not solve the problem. You can create more chests instead. Here is another better solution for bots. Yes... As intended. If one wants huge transfers using bots, the 'airport' is needed. Bunch of chests and inserters. If somebody worked for 200 items...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

In one of the discussions was proposed a more or less easy fix for robots. >There is no reason to mess with belts at all when bots can 'teleport' unlimited resources between storage chests. Chests can get a limit on how much robots per second can access it. The other bots are just waiting, a similar...

Re: [0.17.7] Crash on start at 75%

Does the game load now? Yes. The game also loaded almost always in 0.17.7, the error occurred only once. I ran it at least once (I played yesterday) before the bug and couple of times after (I turned it off and on to check if it would happen again). If there is nothing obvious in the log, it would ...

[0.17.7] [Linux] Crash on start at 75% (png_safe_error)

Happened only once (I played a day earlier the same version and after a bug tried to recreate a couple of times), around "75% loading".

Yes, he still destroys your iron miners. Fraking toasters! In 0.17.04 he not only run over them but also builds the automated iron mine over the one built by me. Also, run over a turret if placed in a nice spot on a cliff near south-east entrance. The turret was expendable, the fat stack of ammo on...

@belt buff. -Is the idea to 'discretize' belts still under consideration? This means that object can be placed only in a set of points/nodes on the belt, and these points are every x, where x is the minimal possible distance between objects on belts. This will cause that if there is empty space on t...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I didn't read all 41 pages of this thread, so, if I'm repeating - sorry. One of the topics here was how to nerf bots in a sane way. Many ideas, like ground bots and interacting bost, were unacceptable because they strip boots off their main advantage - computational effectivity. A bot do almost noth...

Re: Nuclear component heat capacity

But I haven't seen anyone run the numbers on how much energy is stored by the reactors and heat pipes themselves, You just haven't read my posts;-) But it was inside other threads. I like it phrased in that way: to store one fuel cell (8GJ, "burned" without bonus) we need 16 heatpipes (working betw...

Re: Version 0.15.12

With the current way the heat pipes work, however, it doesn't seem practical for three reasons: 1) Heat drains out of the reactor and pipes verrry slowly making the feedback time very looong 2) When the heat pipes reach 500C, the steam engines drop to zero output in only a few seconds 3) Single qua...

Re: What programming language Factorio is written in?

While many people learned c++ after c, learning c only for later learning c++ this is far from optimal. You will invest time to learn c, then more to unlearn most of it:) Tricks "from c" can be used in c++, but this is not how one should write in c++ most of the times. Just grab a _modern_ book for ...

Re: Version 0.15.11

I was sure I send it earlier: It shouldn't make the efficient nuclear setups impossible, it should force you to build heat pipes shorter and branch faster. The original idea of the whole heatpipe system was to force some kind of fractal designs, which is probably not going to happen, but this should...

I wonder... how to combine marathon/DW with rail world? I assume you would just copy rail world's Resource Settings and keep the marathon/DW Advanced Settings?

Re: Version 0.15.11

It's not broken, you just don't understand the new mechanic (*edit* - you missed the issue of a perfect heat balance - see below). Heat pipes appear to now have a static 1C delta from pipe to pipe. Yes, this is it. When we subtract 'pipe polarization' for ~50 pipes: ([ 692-512, 624-509, 601-509] -5...

Re: [0.15.1] [kovarex] Non-Conducting heat pipes after 60 tile

You could treat the reactors as one giant node, which is more inline with how the game treats them anyway. It is treated exactly that way. I'll admit it is cool that heat pipes are a heat simulation, but what might be more relevant is simulating them as a set of pipes that behave consistently regar...
