Re: UPS optimized Steel smelting to 1 blue belt

Is there any way to measure the # of swings of an inserter? Maybe better for me if not :) You should be able to calculate it theoretically based on the number of items and the stack size. If the inserter is not clocked and does not take a full hand, you can experimentally look at just one of the mo...

Re: UPS optimized Steel smelting to 1 blue belt

My priorities were: - UPS optimization (as less as possible moving parts preferred) -> 12 beacon setup - belt focused solution, minimal circuits to reduce inserter swings - simplistic approach - also good looking :D … Possible improvement areas: - better control of the inserters - as discussed in t...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

Unless there will be a game-changer comment ( :D ), this is final now. The most UPS friendly full belt producing smelting I can do with belts and inserters. You can use a constant combinator instead of an arithmetic combinator to add one to the clock (I am not sure whether that counts as a game-cha...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

On the second video this is really cool to see that they put all items right into the gaps - lucky(? :D ) layout, also a different, 8 beacon setup. What I did was move the inserters over a few tiles so that their drop location matched the gap location, but it would be possible to do something simil...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

Do the blueprints in this thread not implement that already? Not really: you can see that the inserters empty one after the other, rather than all at once. https://forums.factorio.com/download/file.php?mode=view&id=72152 Especially the bit about the last machine being unclocked. If not, could y...

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

it's best to ensure that the inserters only stay awake for as long as they need, which might mean not getting a fully compressed belt - and if it's compressed, don't add more output to it. Hm. How would you propose to achieve this while also ensuring a net gain in UPS? I'd speculate that adding mor...

You can do the same thing by holding the item and then middle clicking on slots you want filtered to that item.

behind the sloped walls the laser towers?
Yes, the goal is to smooth the corner out to spread the biters out: the problem near the corners is that every biter will attack the same place, but there are fewer turrets in range to defend it because they are behind the corner.

What I did was save the game as a scenario, then load the scenario and overwrite the old save. I think that you should still be able to get achievements that way?

Re: Walking or zooming makes my game Choppy/Stutter

Turning off Force Composition Pipeline fixes the stutter, but introduces enormous screen tearing … it does not show up on OBS I wonder if you have Wait for VSync enabled or not?: it looks like your FPS in the upper right never goes above 60, where when I play if it goes to 59.9 it always compensate...

Re: Request for sound in scenarios

Scenarios are generally just mods from the devs … So I move this to implemented. Based on the Wiki , there are some important differences between mods and scenarios: a scenario can be part of a mod, but it can also be used without a mod.

Can it be implemented in "settings. Lua"? It should be in control.lua Here is an example of a mod using notched sliders: https://github.com/raiguard/Factorio-QuickItemSearch/blob/master/src/scripts/gui/logistic-request.lua#L95 That file is required in control.lua: https://github.com/raigu...

Re: Game freezes whenever a rail or chain signal is placed or removed

I understand that this is because the game has to recalculate all train paths whenever a signal is added or removed. I'm after a little advice on what the best way is to address it. I would guess you have trains with no path to their destination: these trains would path all at once when you changed...

Re: best defense?

Sooner or later nests will be created near your defense line … Even worse, it's possible worms are created right outside your turret range but inside their own spitting range, so they will destroy your defense while not being attacked themselves. That is not true if you play on the railworld preset...

Re: best defense?

hello, what is the best defense? It depends on what you want to optimise: At high enough laser damage and shooting speed research, all you need is a single line of laser turrets. Flamethrower turrets are probably the most efficient in damage per turret and cost of firing. Normal turrets are the eas...
