Re: Friday Facts #347 - New hope demo levels

I was playing though the tutorials again for fun sakes and the 4th one takes forever to get though the science, i would highly suggest giving the user some research speed or something to halve the amount of time needed.

Re: Hydrogen, or Hydrogen

You can turn all your Hydrogen into Hydrazine -> rocket fuel or just vent into space using a gas vent. If you are using vents put a overflow valve before it so that it will only vent if the tank is almost full.

Re: Larger Chests 5x5, 2x2

Another point to this is that there is only one mod that give a 5x5 chest right now. The art isnt that great though.

Larger Chests 5x5, 2x2

I was playing Krastrio 2 and I found that I really liked having the larger chests, they are good for loading and unloading trains and with a loader mod you can do stuff like load a belt of ore from a miner into a chest and output multiple times onto a line.

I suggest having a 2x2 chest and a 5x5.

Plastic and Chlorine Techtree

I noticed that to make a plastic bar you need Chlorine but Chlorine isn't a prereq in the tech tree.

Re: What mods go well with bob's mods?

Depends if you want the "Pure bobs" experience, or just want to load a bunch of other mod packs on top of it. Personally, I stick to true Bob's as much as I can to keep it all straight in my mind. But if you use the Attack Drones in Warfare mod, and want to be able to control them RTS style, get Kl...

What mods go well with bob's mods?

I am trying to figure out if there are any good mods that go with the bob's collection of mods that I should use for my game. I would like some endgame stuff to extend my game too. Currently I use -Bottleneck -Even Distribution -Space Extension Mod -Squeak Though -Robot Replacer -Quality of Life Res...

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

Can you please look at the cost of landfill? I think it is a bit too high currently and makes it difficult to make mega projects that need to expand over water.

Re: A Case for Balancing Nuclear Power

I personally thing nuclear power is pretty good right now, it takes a really small footprint and produces a lot of expandable power. MY BIGGEST gripes with it is are... 1. That it requires so much water. 2. Pipe pressure is a huge issue with setting one up properly. 3. Underground pipes don't reach ...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

In my opinion the whole point of the game is to fill out a puzzle. Water is a good part of that puzzle in the start but at the end I don't understand why it should be a blocker anymore. Water at the end of the game acts as a wall to the biters so actually giving us cheaper landfill makes things more...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

Isn't the whole point of this forum to talk about balance? Yes I understand -I- Can mod the game but if I can show that the end values are crazy high the devs can understand that their values can be tweaked and it will be better in the end.

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

Since you are writing a mod for your self expanding factory simply modify the landfill recipe or depend on one of the cheaper landfill mods out there. As a player of seablock and pyblock I can feel your anguish about how much landfill you need. On the other hand I've probably produced millions of l...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

This is a big concern for me because I am design a self expanding factory with rail and it will have the ability to landfill and go over water. Right now for one frame (about 200 tracks long and high on the inside) it will take -AT LEAST- 13k landfill which will be 260k stone! And that is just the b...
