Re: Circuit network design

Ive realised that ive created a rather technical topic and encouraged you all to take the time to read it. I think i owe some of you a better explanation, if you want it. Here's a bit more background on the coding and terminology that's (probably) behind the scenes, and the terminology ive been usin...

Re: Circuit network design

Okay i thought maybe we'd try a different approach to the topic. I'm going to provide a survey, all related to implications about this design decision, and anyone that would like is encouraged to answer them. Answer "unsure" if you don't really know how the question would apply to your needs Please ...

Re: Circuit network design

No, I'm talking as a guy with source access who would potentially try to implement changes if they make sense. Again, im suggesting that the current design is flawed, not necessarily the goals of it. You are demanding a solution to that design problem that im saying is too complex to have a single ...

Re: Circuit network design

Okay Allaizn, i think i get what's going on a bit. You're frustrated that im voicing such strong opinions after having played with Factorio's implementation of logic for only a handful of hours. My sentence disclaiming playtime was not for you, a player, it was for the developers to better contextua...

Re: Circuit network design

You're correct in that Everything != 0 will generate a true result as long as any signal exists. It's a little annoying; to successfully check that all channels in which you are interested have a non-zero value you need to play some additional (though not especially complicated) combinator games. S...

Re: Circuit network design

Oh okay, thank you for the addition/correction! i didn't know that about the "everything" wildcard. but i think you can still work a problematic example by swapping the comparison type if i have a network reading from an almost empty chest and i test individually that entity X,Y equal 0 but Z does n...

Re: Circuit network design

Goes to show, don't test things at 2am and talk about it. I could have sworn it output false for a zero value, but you're totally right that you can check if an individual value equals 0 and get an intuitive result. But i'd only change my argument a little bit, and maybe provide a different example ...

Circuit network colors

I love your idea about giving certain circuit network keys intuitive functional characteristics. The color keys driving light color is brilliant. I think this is such a cool way to keep a similar level of complexity in both implementation and UI/UX, while subtly providing another tool for users that...

Circuit network design

I want to suggest something about the current circuit network design is unintuitive / inconsistent. My rationale is a little technical, but i think that my main point applies to any audience using logic networks. I'm basing my thoughts off 10ish hours of just playing with networks in Factorio + expe...

Re: Peace with Aliens

I love this idea! I don't find fighting them fun, and i still think i'll probably just prefer flat peaceful most of the time, but there are moods where i think i'd like an inbetween. Something that gave me a few problems, but maybe ones that had more mutualistic requirements / outcomes. Would you ev...
