All the zero drain laser walls

It is often topic, as lasers are popular type of defence, but power draw is irritating tax. I found some laser walls bluprint which mostly are prototypes or doesnt work at all. So here is the dedicated topic for thinkerers. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf v2, Modular 1-4 cores book : 40-480MW, All the bells and whistles

The first test was done with 50 beacons connected to the power pole next to the power switch on the 480MW version. This representing a consumption of 24.3MW with only 5 MJ of buffer. This is lab environment :). 1)The thing that was problematic to me was the notification all the time. Because in the...

7. Conditions for next power cell are: fuel_ready & 200s_passed & steam_low means, all 3 conditions are valid but heat stored in heatpipes is still there. 8. new cell is inserted e.g. system inserts new cell before the heat of previous cell is fully consumed. You didnt catch the trick. Plan...

Looks like there would be space to include fuel cell recycling. It would. There is a nice (re)procesing added you could download. However, put it inside plant is a bit wierd as it can support many power plants, it looks to me better to have just one. Also your other idea to add more turbines for pe...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf v2, Modular 1-4 cores book : 40-480MW, All the bells and whistles

Latest Update: Version 3 released. The top post updated. - better understanding of liquid flows allowed me reduce number of Steam storage tanks from 8 to 4, ( while all the features are unharmed) - one turbine removed (84 to 83) to reduce overspend steam. This reduce chance of core overheating from ...

Re: Are Additional Heat Pipes Required for the Outputs of Adjacent Nuclear Power Plants?

I first store the steam with the steam tanks. The reactors shut down when the steam reaches ''240k''(2X2)/'1M''(2X4). The charge percentage is also connected to the switch, with a default setting of 20% depending on usage. However, I find the return of an experienced player important and valuable. ...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

not only a + b must be < 2147483648 but actually the sum of every a + (b + constant) must be < 2147483648, otherwise the intermediate value used for comparing is interpreted as negative. So the maximum value for each a and b as well as the value to add is floor(2147483648 / 3) = 715827882. Or you c...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

1. #1 arithmetic: multiply b with 46340 Pro: works perfectly for all values from 0..4630, latency 2 ticks. Contra: values must be positive and not exceed 46340. Instead of multiply/divide you could add/subtract value of half of range (e.g. 2^31/2 = 1 073 741 824), then your working range is 0 ..1 0...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

i'm wondering if it's normal than the wiki machine is 'failing' at filtering signals whose value are triggering an overflow. I understand combinators as raw_math_code_machines so they behave properly. Overflow is inevitable behaviour of numerical machines. Try any clock from wiki, it "suffer&q...

It has slow and steady curve. It Shows applications and try to avoid over-explaining. You can use combinators even without advanced maths. However, simple logic thinking helps.

Re: Spidertron's infinite patrol

Here is an idea how to use Spiders falowing train for defense:

Make a wall based on mg turrets, add train stations as often as roboports. When biters attacks, then mg starts fire, it sets train station to enable, so cavalery comes. To the proper section which is under attack. :ugeek:

Re: Spidertron's infinite patrol

Instead of solid fuel use coal to go slower. You can also attach a wagon in front of each locomotive and get wagon fully loaded to get weight so to slow it even more. Yellow rockets are pretty safe, I could imagine this as an escort for outpost. Outpost connected only by trains, no pols, trhu ever e...

No. Water input is 2x3 tubes, it means, 200 pipes long to 6 shorepumps is possible. mmm but then you put the water in 2 tanks, and use a pump to extract from the tanks, so no power, no water. this is why i think solar is good. You said you added solar, other option was remove pump, but in this case...

That's a safe option, since you have incorporated the water input with a storage tank and a pump it's not really worth trying to go full pumpless. Tank-less vs Pumpless. :idea: This kind of design in a grid would required powered water input contrary to design prepared for lake & landfill metho...

after testing edge cases, like massive overload consumption, I found out, the all fluid pumps have to be powered by internal power grid. Otherwise it make plant stall. So I removed a combinator contraption (which deliver only partial solution) then add another solar panel and make proper wiring for ...
