Re: Some small mistakes I found

I think #5 is basically just a way to help people figure out how to mine niobium in FNEI, it's not meant to be usable. But it might instead be an old relic of an older version that never got deleted.

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

Raw nexelit should be able to be smelted in a regular furnace, there should also be a nexelit processing tech if you have PyRO (which it looks like you do) for getting it with a better ratio. Searching in the tech tree is a good way to be misled, use FNEI or similar instead. Titanium gated behind ch...

Re: Resource gen settings

I've only ever used vanilla resource gen. What does RSO provide that people like? Depends how you tune it. By default it is like super railworld, with a tendency to be more consistent than vanilla resource gen at low frequencies (i.e. there tends to be less of "deserts and oases" in terms of ore sp...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Plus to get to that point requires 500 hours of gameplay... so there's that. So it comes into play almost halfway through a run? lol Not really, this is actually pretty close to the end of a 1-rocket run. If you don't get into the realm of launching numerous rockets or doing an endgame mod like Spa...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

For me, to get 100 molten nexelit in the following ways take the following amounts of high grade nexelit: Melting reduced: 15 high grade. Melting high grade: 5.9 high grade Melting sintered, where the thing that you sintered was reduced nexelit: 4.5 high grade Melting sintered, where the thing that ...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

There are several places where smelting reduced metal is just bad, such that the only reason to produce reduced metal is if you're going to sinter it afterwards. When I was last looking at this in detail, there were places where this was true of high grade metals as well. The problem here is that r...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Regarding scaring new players... The earlier the less they suffer. Pymods shouldn't be deceptively easy. Eh...there's something to be said for reducing the pain that it takes to get some basic automation going, and then throwing them off the cliff when they actually have the tools to deal with it i...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

PyAL at launch won't be balanced around dealing with biters. Pyanodon has been pretty explicit about this point. I've seen speculation that a biter balance patch may happen partway through the patching cycle of AL. So basically those of you that play with biters are on your own. Most py players don'...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

I'm really not sure what sniper is talking about, the lead/silver chain lets you turn a given blob of ore either entirely into lead or entirely into silver, regardless of how far you take the chain. There is no "byproduct" lead.

Re: Mod conflict

If you want to use these together you will need pycoal touched by an angel. That said I don''t recommend ABPy, it mostly serves to make Py easier after the initial period of just getting the basics running.

Re: 2 Suggestions

I've proposed having production science consume circuit 3 in some fashion, for exactly this reason. It's a lot more stuff than chemical science, but it isn't really much added complexity compared to chemical science. Then utility science winds up being even more intimidating than chemical science wa...

Re: Circuit 1 basic recipe unavailable to be automated?

Honestly you might as well start cranking out logistic science packs fed by handcrafted circuits. They literally cost more when automated, even putting aside the complexity.

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

The ground borer also has the problem of drilling fluid if you have PH, which effectively kills the idea of using it for niobium until very late since iirc the niobium recipe uses fluid 3. In my view the py mods balance each other together rather than really being balanced separately so this basical...

Re: Early game attention

Py is explicitly not balanced for enemies at the moment, pollution numbers and cost of weapons need an extensive review, plus keeping up with weapons tech is difficult, especially with evolution going on. If you basically turn off time evolution and scale down both pollution and spawner evolution, a...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Hot Air shouldn't give more than 50% boost to anything. Honestly even that seems a bit much. Hot air is basically free as far as resources go. It costs a little bit of electricity, and that's it. Maybe a 1/3 improvement (33.33%) would be more appropriate. And it should give less and less (as a perc...
