i set the requests to something like from 80% or 90% of a stack size to one stack
I do it because when I'm working on my base and I retrieve a few of something it will not automatically roll over to a new stack.

I bought this on steam yesterday (which is version 0.17.79). Can i still play (total newbie) the 0.18 game? should i play that and not the 0.17?
Yes, to get to 0.18, open your Steam Library, right-click Factorio, Choose Properties, BETAS tab, select dropdown "Latest 0.18 Experimental".

Re: I CLICKED THE ROCKET

This must be the coolest web UX feature I have seen in 20 years!

I have run into a snag with the feature, though: how do I get back up if I read the page again? Do I need to click on 100 hidden rocket parts? :)

Re: [0.17.79-0] Fueled Inserters stop working

The blue belt is definitely the problem here. Red belt works. If downgrading the belt isn't an option, consider using normal inserters in a separate solar powered grid. Or have some steam engines power only the inserters Another option to use instead/inaddition I've used is to have red reach insert...

Alrighty, re-reading, then yes, understand your intention. One station unlocked at a time, rotating as the previous is used. My thought for a station's logic is then to Only enable Station N when Station N-1 has a train (trainID non-0) Arrive. (Keep it on forever, until below) Disable Station N alwa...

Re: enable stations of same name in sequence

To me the logic would work as follows: Trains will path to "Iron pickup intake" station with no tasks there. Beyond it you have the Iron stations all called "Iron Pickup". The reason is a train will only path once it passes the "Intake" Station. At station1, read the serial# of the currently docked ...

I was suspecting the base growth was related to evolution, but it seems like it is tied to expansion? I'm not sure, I'm going to keep testing it.
The evolution factor lowers the base growth interval:

Expansion is not disabled; I just tested in a sandbox at 16x speed.
Doubting myself, I ran another test and found the bases did not send out colonists but each colony did get larger. e.g., what started out as a single spawner structure will grow to 2 structures in close proximity, etc.

Re: finally built first silo!

There is no need to add a satellite to trigger the win condition any more. The satellite is only required, if you want to get space science out of a rocket launch. I believe this was changed with 0.17.0 or even earlier. mea culpa! I had even posted this two weeks ago: https://wiki.factorio.com/Vers...
