Re: Compact (?) 40/s Green Circuits with Prod. Modules

Your belts take up a lot of space making it less space efficient than it could be. I've been using this setup since 0.13 gave us stack inserter.

Re: Circuit network features for 0.14

The combinators really need operations like >=, =<, !=, % and bit operations. I also want to see a combinators being able to handle wire signals separately e.g. each green wire / each red wire outputting each or each green wire >= each red wire output each 1 each should only compare the same signal ...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Equalizer chests v1.1.4

As far as I've seen it has no influence on performance since it does the loop regardless every 60 ticks.
All I noticed was an Error if you use a Diff of 0 or 1. It has to be at least 2 for your current logic, making the minimal achievable difference between first and last chest in a row (#chests * 2)

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Equalizer chests v1.1.4

Here's a version I made for myself. Since those features where asked for on the mod portal.
- added circuit network
- reduced difference threshold for balancing, long rows at train stations balance a bit better

Re: [MOD 0.13.14] Robot Army. 0.2.1

The squad sizes are arbitrary and can now be set in the new settings module by the way.. no need to change config.lua for the most common settings. The activity module should also show constants like squad size. Why did you need 3 assemblers? For spawning more droids faster? My map got so big, than...

Re: [MOD 0.13.14] Robot Army. 0.2.1

I was asking for a link since i needed 3 assembler to even get the hunting quads to start cleaning.
Currently there is no feasible way to make sure each of those locations spawns/maintains exactly one hunting squad.

Re: [MOD 0.13.14] Robot Army. 0.2.1

After watching Hunting Squads for a few hours i noticed some odd behavior. Sometimes squads run way outside the designated hunting radius and never retreat even with only 5 bots remaining. I set them to retreat with 10/20. Do you have a droid assembler they can retreat to? If you've only ever place...

This is great, hop in a Satellite Uplink station and just watch them work, almost feels like CnC. :mrgreen:
It would be nice if DroidActivityModules where to also return the constants.

Re: How to track down desyncs?

Now that I think about it from that perspective it makes sense putting not only data that needs to be saved but also variables like timers that need to be synced in global. I am too used avoiding global variables from c# development. Perhaps a note in Lua/Data_Lifecycle Global about local not being ...

Re: [MOD 0.13] Orbital Ion Cannon 1.3.1

You probably have too many auto-targeting stations at once, try reducing your overall number of them and/or reducing their range in the config file. No, the problem is using find_entities_filtered for targeting. It isn't meant to be used for such big areas so often. My version used another API call...

Re: Mass production 3? How are you getting along?

I reworked my 1rocket/min base to become vanilla just for it. Even with that it's taking ages to complete, and fills up any buffer rapidly. By now I've expanded the Processing Unit module to swallow 16 compressed belts of EC, just so it fills less storage. http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/u...
