Re: [0.15.23] inserter waits too long

Speaking as a programmer, I know some of us find the word bug too whimsical and use the word defect instead, as it has a more uncompromising sound to it. So is this a defect in the game? No, it isn't. The developers intended for things to go at certain speeds. If something in your factory isn't keep...

Re: Move goods without belts

You're not doing anything wrong. It's just not something you can do with assembly machines.

Re: "View your posts" doesn't let me view my posts

So maybe the text should be changed to "View all the topics I've posted in" rather than "View my posts".

(Though just viewing all the topics I've posted in doesn't seem very useful.)

Re: Alternate research tracks

The problem in general with "Make an easier way to accomplish X" is that it destroys any sense of accomplishment in doing X the original, hard way. To draw an analogy: In addition to getting an Olympic medal by competing and winning, imagine that you could get an Olympic medal by paying th...

Re: Problem with some rail signals

It's red because of the train on the left. That train entered the block (turning the signal on the left red) and is still in that block, because it hasn't passed another signal. So that train will stay in that block, blocking it, until it's done loading and leaves. I gather you probably don't have a...

Re: Showing Underground Belt Direction

Is there a way to display the direction of underground belts by pressing the [ALT] key (without hovering the cursor over each of them), like with showing the recipes inside assembling machines? No, but you don't need Alt to see the direction. The little chevrons on the underground belt ends point t...

Re: How to use logistic chest ?

In a nutshell: Blue chest - Use for requesting items, e.g. for an assembler. Robots will try to find these items and put them in the blue chest, which the assembler can then pull out with an inserter. Red chest - Use to deposit what the assembler makes. Robots will take these if they're needed elsew...

"View your posts" doesn't let me view my posts

When I click "View your posts", it shows me a list of threads I've posted in. What it doesn't do is show me my posts. If I click on one of the threads, it just shows me the whole thread, not the part where I posted...which can be quite hard to find manually in a 14-page thread. Is there so...

Re: Why won't my circuit-enabled pumps pump?

The train was (in theory) perfectly aligned. It was brought to the station automatically. It should be obvious that the train was in the station correctly, because why else would the light oil pump show an activated (green) light on it? It was activated by reading the 75k light oil on the train. But...

Nah, it was a brand new stop. Neither the pumps nor the pipes, tanks, and chemical plants had ever consumed any fluid before.

Re: Why won't my circuit-enabled pumps pump?

After all that, I deleted the three pumps, added them again, hooked them back up to the circuit, and set the enable conditions again.

And now...it works!

Bug?

Why won't my circuit-enabled pumps pump?

I'm trying to make a train stop that can process any of the three crude oil outputs into solid fuel. As you can see from the picture below, I have three pumps. The first is enabled if heavy oil > 0. The second and third are for light oil and petroleum. All three are connected to a circuit which is a...

Actually, I'd much prefer that autotrash had a higher priority. If you've ever made the mistake of deconstructing a storage chest with a personal roboport, then you already know why... I feel like autotrash should actually have the highest priority, even above personal request slots. After all, tras...

Smarter auto-trash

I've found that the interplay of request slots and auto-trash slots can be a bit awkward. Say I want to carry 200 and only 200 blue belts. I set my request slot for 200, and I set my auto-trash slot for 200 as well. Then later I change my request slot to 300 blue belts. Now my logistic robots give m...

I like most of the ideas, and don't mind some of the others, but I agree with what others have said, that "merging" damaged items would be weird and wouldn't seem to fit the spirit of the game. I'd rather see it be easier to repair something in inventory. I should be able to select on my r...

Re: Why aren't medium poles a drop in replacement for small ones

How does it work now if you replace a MKIII with a MK1? I assume it just zeroes out the modules when you replace the MKIII with the MK1? That's the easiest to program. If you replace an Assembly machine 3 with an Assembly machine 1, it removes the modules and puts them back in your inventory. If th...
