Re: Placing roboports like a pole man!

While I can see the merit of your suggestion, there are plenty of times one wishes to saturate an area with roboports (eg, around an unload station) and not being able to "tile" them would be annoying. Given roboports are regular placeable items - like assembly machines, furnaces - I think...

Re: Artillery Wagon with Destination Full

I'm not sure what you mean about the inactivity. Artillery wagons on an automated train will only operate from when the train arrives at a stop until the wait conditions in the schedule allow it to leave. The fact a train may not move away from a stop when the wait conditions are met (eg because it...

Re: Roboport Improvements

Maybe I'll make a shameless plug and reshare my idea for an improvement to roboports.

Re: Downgrade Assem to V1, still has module ghosts?

Fortunately, I did a search and found this issue before I reported it again! In my case, I had a Mk3 assembler ghost with 4 level 1 speed mods. I downgraded to a Mk2 and the 2 speed modules were delivered (after I hand-crafted them), and the module request icon remains. This is really confusing. 202...

Re: Friday Facts #377 - New new rails

What about high-speed-tunnels (or -bridges) designed to traverse very long distances? They would ignore trees, cliffs, buildings, intersecting regular rails etc. and trains could reach a higher max velocity. As a trade-off, no train stops could be placed in them and you couldn't enter or get off a ...

Re: Mod Folders to Allow For Easier Mod Management

Instead of "folders" (which sounds like it implies that users know what they're doing in their OS), having the ability to group mods within the in-game UI, or add personal tags, could be a good way to achieve a similar outcome.

Re: Request X number of items from a inserter

You could try setting the item stack override on the inserter to 5 or 10. Then when you count the number picked up, it won't overload.

My Megabase

I would just like to share my 3k SPM base. It has run for the obligatory 10 hours with 6 science packs, and will also support military science. I did not focus on saving UPS, and it runs between 50 and 60 UPS on my modest PC. I don't like setting up solar, so it's powered almost exclusively with nuc...

Perfect half-lane split

I'm sure I've not seen these elsewhere, but surely someone else has worked it out before! You can use the side-load-onto-underground-trick to achieve a perfect split of 1 belt onto 2 half-belts.
