Re: Friday Facts #366 - The only way to go fast, is to go well!

So I happen to have have watched GiantGrantGames do his 24hours, all starcraft missions twitch stream this weekend (before reading this FFF). And in the stream they mentioned a saying from the Navy Seals which I feel is quite similar to "The only way to go fast, is to go well!". That sayin...

you could add an inactivity check for 5 seconds.

Adding fuel resets this, so your train will wait as long as fuel is being added.
Didn't think of that. Thanks!

Re: Read train contents from locomotive

So I was refueling my train at this station where it also loads up on fluid. I've encountered a small problem that unless I also specify a time wait condition. It could at some points leave the station. Filled up on fluids but with less fuel added then the amount it uses for the trip. This eventuall...

Re: Stations, Junctions, and all things deadlock - IMAGE HEAVY

Great thread! And it is good that they wanted to make this more visible by making it a sticky. But wouldn't it be better to have a more general train thread in which we reference this thread and others? If I wasn't on my phone right now I might have created it. For now, I'm hoping someone else will ...

Re: Easy placement patterns

I've recently been thinking about this so I'm sorry for reviving this old thread. Anyway, While blueprints do help there are situations before you have access to them or even when you have access where it doesn't quite do the trick. Hello! My first thought is placing the first item, then moving the ...

Re: Smelting area iron/steel

I personnally prefer local steel production. It makes a narrower main bus. Thus I can't tell how I balance steel/iron production. I have to say, when I started playing I had this big smelting area in mind where I would smelt copper, Iron and steel, but I'm slowly thinking of doing the steel locally...

But this made me wonder In the case of Iron and steel What is good ratio iron to steel that should be smelted or do you all smelt steel locally and only use a central area for iron and cop...

Re: Oil train stations

I suppose this idea was already given? ...full barrels --> A) blue inserter --> B) smart chest (red wire) --> C) blue inserter --> D) [ wagon with empty and full barrels ] --> E) green inserter (if oil barrel on red wire is > 0, filter on empty barrels) --> empty barrels... This unloads empty barre...

Re: Oil train stations

Thank you all for all you're responses so far. I choose to work with trains because as many have said before they are just more fun. They also add mobility to your character (you can't ride pipes to their source or destination). I was sort of hoping someone had a method where they dynamically took t...

Oil train stations

Dear factorio players, I've recently started transporting my oil by train. As we all know this means getting it into barrels first, putting it in the train and then getting it out of the barrels while getting the empty barrels back so they can be filled again. Now I was wondering if there was a good...
