Fluid: Ghost elbow pipe stops "real" fluid flow.

If you put a ghost elbow pipe *inline* with a flowing underground fluid pipe it will stop its flow.

This is on the latest today's 18.? download. 7/5/2020

Use the enemy to grease the treads of our tanks!

I've heard that Gen. Patton said that. While doing these new animations, could they look into leaving tread marks as the tanks roll past? And, when you drive through a mass of dead bugs, they'd get all scrunched up and spread all over and get into the treads n' wheels.. Dragging bits of bug behind y...

Re: Niggles and nitpicking - player preferences

Automate everything possible. I typically even have a wood line for boxes & small power poles in my factory. Personal construction bots only. No logistics or bot networks. No walled in areas. I use independent solar powered turret clusters everywhere. Bugs wont pass them. Mines too, extremely ef...

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 se...

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.
