Re: The pulse function on inserters (+belts?) is inconsistent (under low power) and a noob trap.

I'm fine with alternatives existing. What I'm not fine with is people grossly misrepresenting my proposal as being equivalent to one of those alternatives when it is not. This is supposed to be a thread about the proposal to fix the inconsistency, so of course I'm going to correct people when they s...

Re: The pulse function on inserters (+belts?) is inconsistent (under low power) and a noob trap.

can you just be straightforward and not use metaphors[...] I've been doing that this whole thread, but for some reason, everyone absolutely refuses to address the proposal I made directly, instead insisting on some workaround or inferior alternate solution. Remember all the confusion about the &quo...

here's the rope for your bridge that you refuse to install.
Uh, no, that's building stone walls along the sides of the bridge so that people can't fall off, but now there's only enough room on the bridge for single-file anyways.

Dear Texas Instruments,[...] Once upon a time, there was a village by a river. One day, a traveler arrived at that village to replenish his supplies, hawk his wares, and rest his feet, but over the first few days of his visit, he noticed something strange. There was a simple wooden bridge built acr...

Re: The pulse function on inserters (+belts?) is inconsistent (under low power) and a noob trap.

I still see no solution that has a chance to be used by the devs.[...] Does that mean you think the proposal has no chance? Why? None of them addressed the discrepancy specifically. They did in the other multipage mega-whinge that got locked. I never noticed. I probably just never ran low on power,...

devs already said no, though.
No, they haven't. The only post that could be construed that way was clearly a misunderstanding of the proposal, and possibly of the problem itself as well.

[...] this forum was about improving the game when it was in development, but it's done now. these mechanisms have had years for these problems to come up, and it has become an issue for one person only now after the game is released. that means it's not worth spending time on. instead of "gam...

I'm sorry but attempting to objectively judge the quality of the arguments of the person you're arguing discussing with is generally a futile exercise. There are logic-based methods for evaluating an argument and how it interacts with an opposing argument that operate independently of and objective...

Let me tell you a tale. At my day job, things globally work, despite some process issues that are clunky and incoherent due to a bad early design decision (that seemed smart at that time). I have risen a suggestion and tried to convince every one that things could be so much more straightforward if...

Re: The pulse function on inserters (+belts?) is inconsistent (under low power) and a noob trap. Please remove if unfixa

The main proposal does seem to have some merit, but it involves a lot of changes, which makes it harder and thus less likely, all for fixing a small problem which further makes it all the less likely. You would probably want to motivate and explain it in more detail but I suspect that's not an easy...
