Is there a mod to order bots to do just precise thing?

Let's take a look on my examle: I've got modular train-bot-based factory: https://i.imgur.com/7xW5QEy.png Most of depicted segments are bot based (with roboports reaching as close as 2 squares from inner rail). Now I would like to just put roboports inbetween the rails just to feed request chests ne...

Is there a mod to block logistic slots?

Just like above - is there any mod existing to do so? I've seen questions like that before, but no real answer was given. I find this idea usefull, cause sometimes you just have to manually transport some stuff. Having 30 stacks of items transported to you immediately after cleaning your inventory i...

Weird QoL mod for Logistics tab in player's inventory

Hey How about a mod that when you add new item to Logistics tab in your inventory it sets not 1 or stack of items, but stack-$robot_capacity_for_that_item of items? Its annoying to set manually, and the "get one stack" option is too - when you place any of the requested items and then remove it - by...

Re: construction times

I suggest that the gui of recipies in non-player inventories is edited to reflect the actual time taken to craft Big, big yes. I know that this "5s to craft" is not really a SI unit for time, but it would be helpful to have that clear when designing some stuff not yet available in /blueprints on re...

Re: A Deeper Look into Combat Robotics

I don’t think PLD is at least vastly overpowered. Yes and no. 5-10 of them on you and you can just walk around and kite entire biter base with no other weapon in hands :lol: I would really love a button to disable it or a change that it would attack only in defense (eg. for peacefull set maps) tho

Re: Constant combinator use/setting

But for now i need to set every included item by hand to the constant combinator Const combinator have got no "capacity" like chest or assembler, so yea, first time by hand, then just copy paste the combinator. Btw if I copy a recipe from assembler to req chest - how many items will it be set to?

Re: [0.17.79] Trains should repath at a blue chain-signal

There needs to be a limit to avoid that. Three ideas:
- The path is not more than X percent longer.
- The train waits since X minutes:seconds, before trying to go around.
- There are special signals, wich allow this kind of repathing.
4th - button in train GUI
5th - "smart locomotive" item

Re: Does anyone else build multiple quad Nuclear Reactors rather than one big one?

I usually use 2x2 reactors (the 480 ones), just cause they look nice to me. Then I like to create separate 480MW sections of my factory. Don't know why, but I prefer having a few small "towns" than one really big, laggy etc. I know thats less efficient, but the fuel isn't really a problem in this ga...

If I would saw any chance he will answer (but the tone + he was posting on forums later) I definitely wouldn't do that. But all I've seen was him trying to fob me off, so... So the accepting thing basically cuts out any spam urls etc? Can mods see where the post was posted, or just its content? A pe...

Re: A clock maybe?

You're browsing the forums either with a computer, which usually comes with a clock, or with your smartphone/tablet, which also displays a clock. Why would you want another clock on the forum ? Also, I'm assuming you don't have a watch, because there would be even less a reason to add a clock. Time...

A clock maybe?

Hi
