Re: Various mining options

Angel's refining is somewhat different since you process away from the field. My idea is that you can't do that; you must choose when extracting what resource to get.

I'm not sure it's actually better than Angel's though, except perhaps thematically.

Delay productivity items until recipe completion

In FFF 309 it was mentioned that currently you don't get items back from crafting as discussed in this bug report . By changing recipes and thereby refunding ingredients after productivity has created one or more outputs, a player could use this to create additional products without consuming the in...

Bot queues on chests

In FFF 309 one of the ideas mentioned was that bots could take up space/time so that large amounts of bots trying to occupy the same space cause traffic jams and so you can't just scale them indefinitely. Performance reasons are mentioned as the main reason for not doing it, as the current approach ...

Various mining options

Just putting down some idle thoughts that I mentioned in discord a while back: Mountains that can be mined and act as obstacles; blowing them up uses up the resources. You can mine them for a long time before they deplete. Miners should be able to move slowly inward. Resources that deliberately have...

Thoughts about optimizing bot assignments that can't be fulfilled

In FFF 256 , you mentioned that all the ghosts are put into a list and new orders are processed effectively in order, with only a small number being checked each tick. This can result in slowdown processing large blueprints as well as bot orders effectively getting 'stuck' behind uncompleteable orde...

Re: Inserter forgets about fuel inventory.

For the other machines, though, the inserters seem to switch over to fuel as soon as the machines run out. The one in question appears to be an exception.

Re: [MOD 0.17+] Industrial Revolution (WIP)

It works well with FNEI. I don't know much about Helmod, have no current plans for it but will read requests. I know that Therenas has been working on something similar to Helmod and I made a couple of changes at their request so that IR's component system works better with that mod. Jup, Factory P...

Inserter forgets about fuel inventory.

Sometimes, an inserter appears to forget about the fuel inventory and load exclusively into the item inventory of an assembler. In the attached save, note that the furnace immediately north of the character, making stone brick, is out of fuel. This is due to the bug. The inserter that feeds it will ...

Re: [0.17.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

If memory serves from discussions on Discord, the way fluid generators work is as follows: fluid_usage_per_tick sets the maximum amount of fluid that the generator burns each tick. If scale_fluid_usage is false, then this is always consumed regardless of power output. If scale_fluid_usage is true, t...

Regardless of what gets decided about who is going to maintain what going forward, I hope that the repository is made public so that it's easy to submit pull requests.

If Angel has already decided how to proceed, that hasn't been made known to the readers of this thread, so conversations here are taking place without that knowledge.

Re: Development and Discussion

The point of making a new repository would just be to get things moving, not to claim that I'm the best balancer out there. I don't have the experience in play to claim that I'm anything close to the best balancer out there. [Moderated by Koub] I did not make any claim to being the best at balancing...

Re: Development and Discussion

The sulfur change really means that development needs to resume somehow, since it really upsets the current balance.

Re: Development and Discussion

Congrats! I agree with putting it up on GitHub as there's a lot of small bugfixes that could be easily done by others but currently we can't even submit pull requests. From there, having a trusted other modder or three to manage the code seems like a good plan.

Re: Railway and Rail Segment controls

Controlling rail segments is one thing, but in order to have crossing rails, you'd also need some mechanism to control collision on the trains so that they don't crash into each other. The engine currently doesn't have any facility (that I can see) that allows this, unfortunately.
