Early on, rails are kinda expensive... and in late game, even expensive rails would be cheap.

(BTW rails cost the same in normal and expensive mode.)
Except that it's more expensive to produce the steel and iron.

[0.18.9] - Blueprint with train only must have entities button unticked (minor)

If you remove all entities from a blueprint containing a train, you get the message: "Blueprint has to have at least one item." You have to untick the entities box, which I don't remember ever having to do previously.

Re: Logistics in Vanila game

If you don't have requester chests researched yet, you can still abuse the logistics system, if you have construction bots in the network. Assuming you have a chest (any kind) with the item you want, then set up a filtered storage chest at the destination. (For multiple items, you'll need multiple c...

Re: Battle is frustrating

I would add poison capsules to the mix... as you're driving past the nest, toss a few in there. That'll take out the worms and make the nest easier to wipe out when you come back again. The biters and spitters will still follow you out, so you still need some redoubts or similar to bunker behind to ...

Re: [0.18.4] inserters wont load train

Sounds like "not a bug", as inserters can certainly stall if they have something in their hand that they can't release.

If you're using inserters to pick up varied materials to put into a filtered source, then you probably need to use filter inserters so they only pick up the right materials.

Re: [0.17.79] Train station update progress incorrect

I believe that Factorio does show a correct progress bar (assuming "initial cargo" in above formulas to be 0) when you choose "at least 2000". Then, having a starting amount of 1000, the progress bar will actually start at 50% and increase while more cargo is being added. And this is probably what ...

[0.17.79] Train station update progress incorrect

I have a train at a station waiting until Cargo X = 4000, Cargo Y = 2000 and Cargo Z = 2000. If I check the contents of the wagon, and the station progression, I can see that X and Y are at 100%, but cargo Z in the wagon is about 40%, but shows 0% on the station progress. I would expect the progress...

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

As someone who's tried to replicate the logic of LTN without installing the mod (how the F does one prevent the "race condition"?! :( ) I would love to see something like "max trains" or even an equivalent of LTN in the core game. I feel like LTN oversimplifies the problem of managing trains (I've w...

Re: Train's CTRL-click Temporary Stop behavior

+1 Even just having the train switch to manual when arriving at a temp stop would simplify things, IMO.

Thank you for sharing these new features & optimizations with us. 0.18 feels great. The universal explosion on destruction confuses me a bit tho.
