Recycling Machines

I have an idea for recycling machines. These take Logistics, Production and Intermediate Products as ingredients, and turn them back into the ingredients that were used to make them in the first place. For example inputting electronic circuits as ingredients a recycling machine produces some copper ...

Re: Is it possible to produce more than one result?

Thanks for the steer on where to look.

I now have a 'recycling centre' turning electronic circuits back into copper cable and iron plate :)

Re: Is it possible to produce more than one result?

Oh never mind. Of course it's possible. Oil Refineries do it.

Is it possible to produce more than one result?

I was wondering whether it was possible to have a 'machine' that produced more than 1 result. I'm thinking it would be good to have some recycling plants that can 'disassemble' products, but they'd need to produce more than 1 product. For example, putting an electronic circuit into a 'recycling mach...

Re: Craft a specific number of items

Does right-click produce half the max, like when removing half the items from an inventory stack?

Re: Personal Roboport Problem

Thanks I'll give the right click a go.

I do think it's not consistent though with the Roboport buildings. The bots won't leave the building if they aren't fully charged.

Personal Roboport Problem

I'm quite new here and learning the game. I equipped some armour with a personal Roboport, grabbed some construction bots, created a blueprint and tested it. Success! Then I issued a deconstruction order for the same blueprint. The bots grabbed SOME of the stuff, and flew around my head carrying it,...

Re: [MOD 0.12.5+] Launch Control - Automatic Rocket Launching

I get this error when generating a new map with this installed. Did you try the unofficial update MrDoomah posted one post before yours ? Nope because that post gives me absolutely no idea what has been changed, and why. And since nobody else had posted the same error message, I thought I would. :)...

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

I'm new to this game and therefore to the mod. I'd like to suggest an enhancement (it may already be there but I haven't searched well to find it). It would be useful if we could set a 'seed' for the resource distribution so that everybody who uses the map exchange string and the 'seed' gets exactly...

Re: How to find the total power needed?

OK thank you. Sorry if I've covered old ground, as a complete newbie to the game (which I am LOVING), but it's been helpful.

Re: How to find the total power needed?

Hmm as for why it doesn't add up - I have no idea. Explained by daniel34, there being a different time window between the instantaneous data at the top and the 5s breakdown below. As for the pollution and producing to much power - it's not a problem. Steam engines will only produce as much power as...

Re: How to find the total power needed?

The energy consumption on the top is the consumption right now, 4.0 MW. But the consumption you get when adding the consumption of all the devices listed is the average consumption of these devices in the last 5 seconds. Imagine you had laser turrets powered on only for the last one second right at...

Re: How to find the total power needed?

Thanks once again. It would be nice to KNOW that I'm only using half my capability. I have clearly built too much power production, increasing pollution and thus the possibility of being attacked. I'm trying to build only the power I need, when I need it. Your replies have helped me understand thank...

Thank you for the speedy reply, and for confirming that there is not a way of finding out. The screenshot above was when all my water boilers had run out of coal.

How to find the total power needed?

My very first post on these forums. Quite intimidating to see if what I'm thinking is already askedd. So forgive me if it's already there and my search isn't good enough. :oops: Is it easy to find out the total power DEMANDED by all your 'stuff'? It seems I can see the total amount produced, and the...
