Re: Collection of tech tree gotchas

I would like to voice my support for a bit of streamlining on the flow of technology and recipes like this. While some of the charm of the full PySuite is planning out prereqs, it can be confusing/frustrating to unlock a recipe and still have to research dozens of other techs just to use it. Some ea...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

I think Pyanodon removed normal coal as a map resource about a month ago (maybe longer, hard to keep track). There is only raw coal and you must refine it into normal coal.

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

I wanted to do some experiments with caravans but I'm getting an error almost immediately when trying to use them. Easiest repro: start a new sandbox game, create and place 2 caravan depots, and one caravan. Using the auog control device tool, select the caravan. Choose the Route Start to be one of ...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Oh, I'm dumb. I got in my head that the Microorganism Mine had to be placed on the bioreserve, but it can be placed anywhere. Ignore my previous question.

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Just getting started with PyAL - only just handcrafted my first automation science packs - but super excited to see all the new production chains. One thing I noticed is the Microorganism Mine MK01 doesn't show "Mining area" or "Expected resources" like other mines. Could that be added at some point?

Re: Pymods Feedback

Yes, I absolutely love the mod pack. I can't play Factorio without it anymore. I really like a sense of progression, which usually comes down to two things for me: a feeling of accomplishment, and a reward for the investment. The challenges presented in your mod certainly deliver on the feeling of a...

Re: PyBlock (alpha)

Nice! I'm addicted to restarting so I never get very far, but this inspires me to hang in there a little longer on my current run.

Also just wanted to chime in with a thanks to KingArthur for this mod. It's my favorite way to play PyMods.

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

Yeah, I started getting it again and dug into it a bit. In PyCP's resource-generation.lua, it sets up some lists of resources in two different functions - ore_gen.on_init() and ore_gen.on_configuration_changed(). I added some logging and found that neither of these functions are getting called when ...

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

I could get this error very consistently yesterday. I noticed there was an update to the mod and after grabbing that, haven't seen it again. Maybe double-check if you have latest update?

Re: PyBlock (alpha)

I grabbed latest from github a couple of days ago to see what it was like on 0.17. Having the early machines be steam-powered is a cool idea. It solves the problem of the burner wood processor using the logs as fuel when you have better fuel sources. However, the input pipe locations don't align ver...

I like the direction this is going. The laser scan sweeps are a nice touch.

Re: Pyblock Letsplay

Starting with specialized setup like copper / solar doesn't sit well with me. It doesn't represent the experience that everyone else will have playing PyBlock.

Re: Pyblock Letsplay

Yeah, I'm totally okay with an edited-down video, especially if it's just waiting on materials to build up so you can do a burst of activity. Things I would hope you don't edit-out: - I really like when you talk about the decisions you make and what factors you consider. For instance, I liked that y...

Oh, I didn't realize you chose not to use PyHT. It may indeed be a deadlock then with your particular combo of py mods.

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

I think this usually happens as a result of being able to pick and choose which mods you play with. So if you were only playing with Py Fusion Energy, you might not need the pressure pump until you get to diamond mining, but when you play with Py High Tech, it gives it to you at the start of the gam...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

The building is unlocked from the start. You can find it under the Py Fusion Energy tab. It can only make vacuum recipe to begin with, but Coal Processing 1 unlocks making pressured air.

Early oil processing conundrum

I am playing with the full py suite and I have researched oil processing. However, I see that pumpjacks require niobium. That seems odd to me, as that means that researching this tech doesn't actually allow you to start using oil. To get niobium, you then further unlock sulfur processing, then desul...
