Re: Industrial Revolution 2 discussion

In vanilla Factorio there are only four furnace recipes and it makes sense for those particular recipes to have productivity enabled. A modded scenario can have many, many more furnace recipes (as well as other new machines and processes which have to use the furnace prototype) and it may not make ...

Re: Industrial Revolution 2 discussion

In vanilla furnaces allow prod (any) modules so this is not an issue. The issue here is with the mod trying to disallow Prod modules for some recipes (in furnaces), which is not really possible to do completely. You are able to insert Prod modules before it starts smelting (i.e machine is clean). On...

Re: Industrial Revolution 2 discussion

Here is an odd bug with Prod modules... First of it is possible to put Prod modules into Electric furnace at all times... However, this allows to accidentally bypass the restriction of Prod modules for some smelting recipes. The way it is working I am not even sure if it is the issue of not allowing...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

This new beacon design is the ugliest thing ever in factorio. I am not sure how anyone likes it compared to the classic beacon. The old beacon was creating a sense of dynamic with rotating tops and colors were matching. It was creating sense of volume for the entire factory. The new beacon does not...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

So after reading your post :shock: , I only got to say doh :roll: . Darn that's simple. But, for sake of argument (and for all the hours spent finding this solution :D ), if you wanted to get a station with fluid, and 2 different types of items, with all 3 things being of different ordering quantit...

Re: [MOD 0.18] KRASTORIO^2

Additionally looks like a common complaint is that loading trains is very slow (or that loaders can not do it) in Krastorio (compared to how strong production lines are) and this could help to address that. If you could have a stack size of 20-30 instead of 12 that would be much helpful. inserters ...

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

Before the train limit feature, the problem of stations imbalance could be solved by placing several rail signals before the station and enabling red depending on the level on that station. This impacted train pathing algorithm and trains would pick a station with fewer or no red signals on the way....

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

Actually, the solution of @lois could work. Only send the request amount (as negative value) to the station, if the threshold of the individual item is reached. I had the same problem, when i was requesting barrels with low amount and plates, etc. with high amounts My solution was to use 2 differen...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

LTN ALWAYS REQUESTS the THRESHOLD AMOUNT (+ extra a few items drop during time to get to issue an order). Incorrect. What happens if the item signal suddenly and massively changes? For example, if we've got a Request Threshold of 1000 and the item signal at the lamp goes from 2000 to -48000? Does i...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

Small edit to my first post, forgot a part of the solution was in my mod configuration settings and thus needs to be explicitly stated. No your circuitry does not do that because there is only 1 threshold in existence on the combinator. There is also its variation called "Stack threshold"...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

If you do not understand the problem in this thread you can skip it. Now, regarding your "solution". Combinators contraption will not work because the issue is not solvable by sending whatever values of signal into the input. The threshold itself must be different for each item for correc...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

However you have the mod under not permissive license to modify and if you were to be gone as a resource for community you would take this contribution with you. Me or others now or later would want to create a mod to LTN with a different dispatcher logic for example. How would you recommend to pro...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

There's no need for additional code, this is trivial to do right now. Set no item requests (negative values) in your Constant Combinator. You'll add them via circuit invididually. Isolate the LTN Station Lamp from the rest of the circuit via a diode (an Arithmetic Combinator set to Each+0 -> Each),...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

If you read a bit further, you'd see LTN already updates deliveries with train inventory when trains leave a provider. This may need to be done immediately and not at provider otherwise it can generate another order before the first train even reaches provider. Because if you send for a Full train ...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

Full load will break merged deliveries and is not going to happen. "Finish loading" prevents stuck inserters. 2s inactivity is required for stack inserters loading from belts. Either can already be bypassed by turning circuit conditions on. If you read a bit further, you'd see LTN already...

Re: Encoded Network ID, how does it work?

HI, I have a problem with the encoded network Ids. I've set up a couple of stations with different Id's. As an example : One station provides an item and the second station requests the same item from the network but it shouldn't request from the provider station. The provider station has the defau...

Re: Threshold and Stack Threshold

Setup: Multiple providers of different items (providers setup don't matter). Lets use iron plates and speed module as an exam...
