Re: Mixing ammo and artillery shells at requester

Honestly, I dont think LTN is the best match for outpost supply where often you want a very varied mix of items delivered. But there is no issue to mix LTN with standard trains, which is what I would recommend you to do here. Built an outpost supply fil station where the trains get loaded with the v...

Re: Specify an output value for Decider Combinators

instead of multiplying you can provide an input constant combinator with a given value and then use input count.

Re: regarding guns in the late game

My late game outposts are strictly a gun turret/flamethrower affair. With two artillery pieces added in as well. The size is within a single roboport construction range, and I have two overlapping blueprints. The shell, which is the station, roboport and request chests. This gets built by me where I...

Re: Threshold and Stack Threshold

To jump in on this a bit. I think a truly universal reaquester station would have to be done with circuits, and is a nice game problem to solve. In essence you want to only put things on the requester when they are over their specific threshold. I experimented a bit already with these, but I ended u...

Re: loading robots in port via train (help needed)

You can read the entire logistic/robot network from one roboport. So you can use total robots of either kind to then enable/disable an inbound station and have one train with supplies always standing by. I'll take some screenshots of my no-mods outpost and post it here with an explanation of how it ...

Re: How to check full belt of items

I think you have to make a merger with a combinator.

anything * 1 output checkmark for example.
and then on checkmark > 7

Re: Rails auto-deconstruction trees/rocks/...

Or build rails using blueprints.

I have a chunk aligned rails template, and I build all my rails from map view and then I just go out there and actually build em with the bots.

Re: [1.0.0] Filtered inventory slots in Spidertron don't automatically fill

I am replying to this topic instead of starting a new one. But I would also love for the spidertron inventory to get autosorted just like the players. Probably bound to the same or a different setting so players with 500 spidertrons can turn it off if it impacts their UPS too much.

Here is my very simple and not very efficient Kovarex setup: SimpleKovarex.png The key is that the 235 is only ever put on the inside lane and never the outside. The outside lane is for 238 only. The output 238 is priority used as input, and replenished by output from the source centrifuges. This is...

Re: LTN is a mod great enough to build a playthrough around

I have to agree, LTN makes soo much possible because the trains are no longer limited as point to point entities, but behave like bots. I am now playing a vanilla playtrough to get back into 1.1 and I sorely miss it. I don't even know how I'll manage to get all the ingredients to my mall with standa...

Re: Trains using the same track (signals etc)

I am sorry, what seems to be the problem? I dont see any concrete problems you state except "this is hard man"

I can only point you to check some train tutorials on youtube or look at designs and see if you understand them.
