Re: Is this intersection going to work?

... 2. Factorio hates roundabouts because of path recalculation bugs. Is that a fact? I tend to stick with roundabouts by virtue of a "why not?" mentallity, unless I specifically want to deny the trains the option, but I've never noticed/encountered any particular bugs. But this is a definite thing...

Re: Control Train Pathfinder (Passthru stations, Add Penalty)

I found a way to add a (big) penalty to a path : https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=40067 For me, it does not work depending on a the count of green signals on both paths (don't ask me why, I don't understand it. More green signals on both routes seem to make the path recalculation m...

Re: blueprints.factorio.com

For me as player mods, maps and blueprints don't have much differences, the're nothing else than an extension of the game and I would like to search and download them in a similar way than currently with the mods. There is one major difference: Mods are created out-of-game, by writing code, and are...

Re: Wire color based signal input selector (for virtual signals)

Some other thought on this after playing a bit with circuits trying to compact and speed up calculations: Finding out the value of a single signal, where the type of the signal is chosen by another signal would be much easier, if one could just multiply all signal values with their corresponding sel...

Re: Circuit Combinator Memory Cell (0.13)

Probably it is possible to make single value cell with 1 combinator, We could declare my ">" combinator or your "=" combinator as absurd input requirement instead as part of the memory cell, since it doesn't take part in the recursion itself, one could remove it after the memory has been set.

Re: [MOD 0.13] Smart Display - circuit informations display

Very useful mod, but ít (v1.0.7) did behave a bit unexpected when connecting both red an greeen wire, only showing the data from the red (or the newer?) wire; i'd expect it to add both values, as the other combinators do.

Re: Control Train Pathfinder (Passthru stations, Add Penalty)

It was hard to imagine in head, how this is locking. As I understand it, you use a station to turn a train into the right direction? I use a single two-way track with a loop at the end (so no stopping while turning around!) with exactly one two-way exit; no signals except two at the exit to the jun...

Re: Control Train Pathfinder (Passthru stations, Add Penalty)

Well, I think for such cases you should be able to build "slowdown signals". They could be the same signals in https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=21899 - the signals that add points to the pathfinder. I don't think using Slowdown as the only penalty measure is the complete solution. S...

Re: Train Exit Side

Factorio probably should implement similar for the train collision box, as an extra incentive not to put track tight together like that- even though it lets you, there really isn't any good reason to I think. I don't need it that much since a few weeks, but in early factories I didn't leave much sp...

This unexpected behavior can also be useful , but it might be better to include a configurable output in the dialog (if red, send iron, if yellow, send copper, if green, send steel and if safely closed, send steel ). That way it wouldn't break existing creations relying on this behaviour, and the pl...
