Re: Oil Yield decreasing rate confusion.

If it drops to 20% of what it was originally, can you somehow see when it has hit that? and if not, can you somehow see what it was originally when its no longer that?

Easiest way to to know energy storage/production for laser turrents

Is there an easier way than to look at what steam turbines/accumulators you have can produce in total, and see if the usage spikes of laser turrets in the power graph reach that high?

Re: 70 hours in my current game and still havent done yellow science

You're doing great! Sounds like a very successful first game so far. My first game was horrible in comparison. No uranum processing, just a couple solar panels, mostly steam engines, repeated power problems. Incorrectly planned out main bus with more patches than structure. Heaps of spagghetti in b...

70 hours in my current game and still havent done yellow science

70 hours in my current (first) game and still havent done yellow science.....
There have been so much of taking things down to build it new and improved and lots of other stuff.
Building an overkill Nuclear Reactor for what I need currently, added lots of modules to different stuff, and more.

My number 1 lesson from my first game

My number 1 lesson from my first game, is to earlier in the game, leave a lot more space between stuff you build early in the game than you think you will need, like not even twice the space, but quadruple it or more. Using too much space is not a problem, but having things too tightly packed and th...

Based on what someone said I decided to design an 2x8 reactor in Sandbox mode
It's not a 2x8 reactor :)
I did ofc mean 2x4....I don't know why I wrote 2x8....

I will add some pumps and it will, I forgot that, would have found that out when I tried it or just have looked at it more probably :)
Just forgot :)

Re: Make right click to craft 10 instead of 5

Yes, of course, cause you need so much of them and you need it for green potion. I mean in the time when you use belts but before you set up green science... And I try to build the things I need in the right moment, when I just have enough so that I can use shift-click. It’s the flow you get into w...

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

4 sets of 2*2 reactors get you 1920 MW 1 set of 2*8 reactors get you 2400 MW So chaining more is definitely worth it. But beyond about 16 reactors you get diminishing returns from adding ever more Wrong. Building the first 4 reactors gives you 480MW. After that every pair of reactors you add to a c...

Do anyone else build multiple quad Nuclear Reactors rather than one big one, or am I the only one?

Modules and beacons just skyrockets the power usage....

Re: Tank + Nuclear fuel + Re-enforced concrete = Me crashing in to my own base

Is your car in real life, or your bike, stops instantly when you hit brake pedal or squeeze the lever ? If the answer is "no", then think again the implicit question in OP There was no question in the OP.... But Does tanks in real life accelerate as fast as the tank with nuclear fuel does in factor...

Re: Tank + Nuclear fuel + Re-enforced concrete = Me crashing in to my own base

I think crashing the tank (and indeed the car) into your own base is something of a rite of passage. I've been lucky, the worst I did so far was demolish the chest holding my entire stock of furnaces. And that's why it's best to have a rule of no tanks in the base. I usually place the rank right in...

Tank + Nuclear fuel + Re-enforced concrete = Me crashing in to my own base

Tank + Nuclear fuel + Re-enforced concrete = Me crashing in to my own base because I didn't slow down enough in time.

Re: Make right click to craft 10 instead of 5

Factorio is about automation: you should normally not need to produce more items of one sort by hand. You can use shift to produce as much as possible. I kind of like the fact that right clicking crafts 5. If you need much more than 8 of any given item, and have to handcraft it all, you get annoyed...

Make right click to craft 10 instead of 5

When you right click to craft, you craft 5. Why isn't it 10? Clicking 5 is too slow to 1, so if you are going to craft 5 you can just click 5 times. But 10 is a nicer number and more logical to me. if you for example are going to craft 50 of something, you can just press it 5 times instead of 10. A...
