Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Burn it in engines, use it up lubricating machines.

I read somewhere, someone was going on about steam trains (coal/wood & water) Diesel (heavy oil for burning & light oil for lubrication) Would be fun.

Compilatron? How..?

I read about the compilatron, I see the button on the screen. I click it and.. nothing? How does the compilatron work? IS it only in certain games?

Thanks!

Re: Eco-friendly gameplay: Is it even theoretically possible in Factorio?

Donno' if this is the right place for this but.. I found that controlling the power to mining areas gives me the biggest bang for the buck in controlling pollution. I watch the amount of stuff in the train loaders and when it gets full, pull the plug on the miners & ovens. After a bit you can see a ...

Probably right, never did the math. I put it together and it worked. So I was happy.

Re: Factory control board.

If that would work, it would be nice. I'm not completely happy with my solution. Its too complicated to set up. Once its set up, its nice though. I like being able to see who's being overworked and who's just idling along. As I'm typing this, I'm starting to see how your idea would work. You basical...

Re: Early massive biter attack

In rail world, the nests are started pretty far away from your base. So its rare to run into any biters before you need to expand up to the next level of resources. By that time you are usually pretty well equipped and ready. Remote mining areas are what get hit the most.

Re: Bots should help lay rails.

A good example of what I'm talking about would be how it works laying pipes by hand. Run into a tree? Hold shift and the bots take care of the problem.

Re: Is it possible to mod a train with lower top speed on curves

I notice that trains in V17 can now can show you the route they plan on taking. If I were to do some sort of code like this, a solution is to start at the end of the route and work backwards. At the end you start your speed limit at zero. Then, moving backwards bring the speed limit up, noting every...

Bots should help lay rails.

TL;DR When putting down a blueprint I can hold shift and the bots will knock out the trees. I'd like them to do this when manually laying out train rails. What ? When laying out train rails by hand and there is a tree in the way, or possibly a forest. I'd like to hold shift and my personal construc...

Re: Improved Vehicle Control

As for the car, can we just have the turning radius increase as a function of the speed? That way, as it goes faster the steering gets less "touchy". Want to turn sharp? Just slow down.

I bet there's a mod for this, but I'm too new to understand Mods yet.

Re: [Train GUI] Circuit condition progress bar

Show us what the train-stop is set to. Also, if that's correct, try placing a power pole in the box/trainstop circuit. Lets have a look at what's being sent on the network.
