Re: Find production on base, amnesia problem ;)

It might help to enable the map feature that shows the machine recipe. And I think megabase is usually considered 1000 science per minute for 10 hours. But I'm sure that's open to interpretation! :D

Re: When looking at the Filter setting on Filter inserters or Splitters, suggest items that are on the connected entity

You’re right, that could work in more than 85% of cases. And it seems to be simple to implement it as mod first. I agree that it would be OK for about 85% of cases. There are times when one wishes to filter a splitter with something like fish or decon planner to prevent anything going down one side...

Re: Split Belt

Being able to apply the splitter filter by lane would be another approach to solve the "only give me half the belt" problem. Not saying it's a good one... :D

Re: Gigatrains: 720-car trains supplying a 10K science/min base

... man, it must suck if you need to cross the tracks when one of those behemoths passes. If that train is movin, anything that remotely touches it keels over, with that inertia. Where are those trains loaded? What kind of mines are they getting their ore from? Spidertron. :D "Train routing. I...

Re: Why "No Path"?

That's a very cool guess and I didn't think to look for it, but I did now and they're all pathable. edit: That said, perhaps the pathing engine can't figure out a path that requires switching to the reverse engine. Double-ended trains will only switch direction at stations, not at signals, not midw...

Re: Bigger miners covering a bigger area for mid and late game.

Sufficient mining productivity research would seem to me to make this redundant. Once you get to the point where 2 or 3 mines per side will fill a blue belt, the mining radius wouldn't really make much difference.

This bug only happens if "drag map" is set to something other than left click.
I wondered why this was happening to me, and it hadn't yet been reported!

Re: Dragable Train signals

It's a nice idea, but it's hard to say how it would work out practically. How would the signals know how long the space should be? Of course, in one sense you can do this already, using a blueprint with a grid. 100% agree. For example, I often use trains of different lengths within the same map, so...

Re: Plastic production coal-starved?? (solved)

Another option is to load the coal from the belt into a (limited) chest. Then every time the inserter swings to the chem plant, it will be a full handful. The inserter loading the chest will just keep working as required. Even in your limited space you can put the chest in the corner and have the in...

Re: [1.1.6] Spidertron assembly machine requester chest problem

Keep in mind that the copy-paste option assigns enough materials to support 30 seconds of production. Spidertron takes 10 seconds base. Using a level 3 assembler (and/or speed modules) will speed this up, resulting in more materials. If you really want to be making 'trons that quickly :D you will ne...
