when I need to measure fluids, I always use pumps nearby.
How do you measure by pump ?

Re: Good and easily upgradable early to end game wall defence! Plus Laser - Mine defence!

Idea of mine-cell wall is fresh, however, the Price of 80 con-bots is gianormous. This is simply because i overdid it with the enemies to the point their movement got blocked, i doubt such a thing would happen outside the editor. You won't be getting only behemoth enemies to block the way that easi...

Re: Version 1.1.28

The funny thing, lasers are not very strong, but everybody uses them, because they are easy to handle and have a ton of range. Just needs some (or very much) research, but this is a game about research. Flamer has bigger range, than laser. e.g. by your book - laser has a ton of range, flamer has tw...

Re: Isolated power networks and laser sentry turrets

Re: Train Signals - Correct Way to Set Bi-directional Bypasses

In which situation would it deadlock? Something like that: Screenshot from 2021-03-09 17-35-31.png Your previous design is immune to such deadlocks: it never allows two trains to occupy both bypass lanes in the same direction. as OP requests, bi-directional is side tracks.

Re: Constructions robots get "lost" in unpowered roboports

Re: When can I (safely) start with nuclear power?

Flickering lights is most probably reason of missing SR latch on the power plant connection. I mean the flickering when the lasers start to fight off biters. Every accumulator can provide 300kW and I have thousands of them. Lasers need a lot of power, but only for a very short time. - 150 batteries...

I also keep using solar, accumulators also prevent flickering lights.

Re: When can I (safely) start with nuclear power?

I work with a lot of accumulators in order to buffer the overproduction. Not a single second of burned uranium is wasted. Is there a reason you use accumulators rather than steam tanks? One steam tank at 500 degrees is something like 100+ accumulators if I am remembering correctly. 1 steam storage ...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf, Book of modular 1-4 cores : 40-480MW, Losseless, two power grids, all the bells and whis

I left it up to the implementer to decide how to provide the boot power. My own practice was to hook into one of the turbines of the main reactor and use some circuitry to mode-switch whether that contributed to the main grid (normal operation) or was reserved for the reactor itself. The perfect po...

It's actually on this very forum , and yes, I'm quite confident it can run at 100% (well -- nearly. There's a few ticks of delay potentially caused by circuit lag) output because I've tested it to do so. 800turbines times 5,82MW gives 4654MW but your output is 4,3GW. e.g. 300MW about 6% of capacity...

My design is: x(58) * y(58) = z(3364) tiles taken My 2N layout is 302 tiles wide; at the tileable length of 14 reactors, it occupies 71 tiles in the other dimension (the 1 excess is shared when tiled). That gives a total area of 21,442 tiles. 28 reactors in a 2N layout is 4320MW, so that's a power ...

Re: Set stack size to signal quantity with filter inserters

To avoid overshoot, the stack size must not exceed the value of the signal for the item being picked up. Since you don't know which item that will be, you don't know which to use as the stack size signal. There's no practical way to avoid overshoot currently except setting a stack size of one, whic...
