Re: Problem with drop UPS/FPS

fac.jpg The bigger number means more time needed in millisecond to complete a task. if you want to run at 60 ups you need to process a tick in 16.6 millisecond or less. ( since there are 60 tick in a second you want to process 1 tick in 1/60 second or less ). given what you said about number of enn...

Re: Climate Change

Money is created when the government prints money. If everyone payed back debts, the amount of currency would not change. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. The Bond system is not the only money creation source i made a simplified sum up of one thing. Money is created when you go ...

Re: Climate Change

I would say the way money is created relies on models that themselves relies on the idea that growth can be constant over virtually infinite amount of time. It is was fine happening for much time and i think part of it is based on the fact that population growth was following the same trend. I thin...

Re: Climate Change

It’s mainly the responsibility of the industrialised nations to fight climate change but it only works if everyone works together. We can only fix this with regulatory measures. And these must come quick and must be relatively extreme. One very broad approach is fighting capitalism with its own wea...

Re: Climate Change

It doesn't help that people will refuse to change for the better. For example quite a large amount of methane is produced via agriculture. A good way to cut on those would be just less meat intake for everybody. However actually try to tell people to eat less meats (and less animal dairy products) ...

I always thought re-pathing means searching a new path to destination, not switching the destination (if not necessary)... There are 2 differents things, what you describe would be "path-revalidation" in this https://wiki.factorio.com/Railway/Train_path_finding While what happens i think ...

Re: Train stops with limit change assigned numbers of trains

My guess is that some closer train station are freed before the train that was routing to the further one had reached it. Then this train using regular repath conditions switches its target destination to the newly found closest station. Reading incoming train to the far station would then change ac...

It's ok to answer "slowly" :) not everyone has the same consideration of time. I am not understanding what you call "reservation", but i would consider it is a name you use to describe your system, it's not the internal technical "reservation" that the game uses to mana...

Re: Loading Multiple Trains At Same Station

The main risk of these methods (imo) is that inserters pick up one ressource, then can't load all they grabbed due a train being full and leaving, they won't put back the ressource in the chest, and when another train arrive, they would either drop the unwanted ressource on the cargo if you used cir...
