Re: [0.17.76] Walking while placing power poles doesn't ignore deconstructing poles

On a related note, if there are any power-using entities that have been marked for deconstruction along your path, additional power poles will be placed in an attempt to power these entities (even though they are marked for removal!).

[0.17.76] Walking while placing power poles doesn't ignore deconstructing poles

Walking while holding down the mouse button with a power pole selected will normally place a series of poles at the maximum connectable distance. However, if there are any existing power poles near your cursor that have been marked for deconstruction, you will not place any new power poles. This was...

[Klonan] [0.15.9] Supply Challenge requirements out of date

The Supply Challenge level 16 and later require components for the old recipe for the Science Pack 3: Advanced Circuits, Batteries, Filter Inserters, and Steel Plates. Since the Electric Drill is now required for blue science, it could be made a requirement as early as level 11 to replace the contin...

Re: [0.11.22/0.12.x][v0.12.6] Bob's Ore Mod.

@netmc: Don't worry about getting the ratio exact for the Lead Oxide and Advanced Lead machines. As you unlock more techs for higher level chemical plants and multipurpose furnaces, the ratio will swing around a lot. A 1:2 ratio of Oxide to Advanced Lead is good enough for most of the game. The sulf...

Re: [0.11.22/0.12.x][v0.12.6] Bob's Ore Mod.

I am drowning in Nickel ore! I was wondering if you should make an alternative cement recipe to use Nickel ore vs. Iron Ore, since it's just stones in the cement mix. Give me something to do with all this Nickel I have! :lol: Process the ore into nickel plates and sulfuric acid. Use the acid to pro...

Re: [0.12.4] [kovarex] items with roboport can lock up during crafting

I've found another way the inserter can lock up while inserting items. The allowed overload for assembly machines depends on the machine's speed. The speed bonus provided by beacons is reduced when the beacon is not at 100% electricity. When the speed bonus drops because your power needs are not met...

Re: [0.11.22/0.12.x][v0.12.8] Bob's Modules.

I just have to note that the config option for "production module restriction" is rather useless, since it restricts you to only vanilla intermediates. I've been imposing the restriction myself by not putting them in any machines making "usable products". That... shouldn't be the case. One of the t...

Also the machines could use a bit of ballancing. Thinking about them in relation to the other machines, I notice you didn't mention electronics machine 3, I'm guessing that it was either underwhealming when compared to an assembly maching 5/6, or that you just didn't make it up that far through the...

In fact, we should be able to use copper wires to connect any machine to any other machine, so we won't need power poles at all!
