Re: logistic: push to storage

What I need is a way to tell the robots not to transport material to a storage across the map, but use the one right next to the source and the consumer. (Actually, I'd have expected this to be default behaviour.) Is there no way to accomplish this? Split the logistic network into smaller cells. I ...

Re: I admit defeat.

Yeah, that's the issue. Copied ghosts (which I was doing, via cut/paste) don't auto rotate when placed. Probably a 'feature' but a usability issue if you ask me. If you look closely, you will see there's a graphic in between the railroad ties when the signal connects properly that's missing when th...

Re: Why would I care about pollution?

The consensus I seem to pick up is that pollution-induced attacks are something to be avoided? Whether by managing pollution or a biter eradication program, it looks like you don't like it when a nest comes under the cloud. The reasoning is simple. Would you rather: Continually have to spend resour...

Re: Why would I care about pollution?

I can't possibly reduce pollution so much as to avoid attacks altogether Oh, but actually you can .

Re: Factorio is two games: pre and post robots.

My understanding is Pollution is deterministic, so you should be able to determine when and where pollution is hitting biter nests, and hence where you need to build defences. Biter behaviour should also be deterministic, but might be affected by a psuedo-random generator that varies between runs, ...

Thank you for the answer. This feature should be enabled by default in my opinion.
I think that having option on by default would cause confusion in new players and would even annoy veteran players which normally don't use the feature.

Re: Landfill, Stone, gear production issues

I'm not sure it's even possible to run a SINGLE landfill machine without it being starved at least some of the time (three independent blue belt stone feeds maybe?). It is possible.

Re: Blueprint cable removal on placement

IMPORTANT: Have a setting to disable this feature if it's ever implemented.

We do not want a repeat of the mess "blueprint saving copper cables" feature has caused. If I don't want to deal with it I should have the option to turn these kind of features off.

Re: Power satisfaction bug?

What am I missing here? Is this a bug maybe? Beacons specifically have a rather large electric energy buffer compared to the amount of energy per tick they use. Specifically they have a buffer around 5x larger than they use per tick. Here you can see the impact of that energy buffer (look how the S...

Re: Make "all trees/rocks" into filters for deconstruction planners

IMO the "Trees and rocks only" button should only be a shortcut which places generic "Trees" and "Rocks" entries into the filter. Switching on the toggle should make the filter "Trees" and "Rocks", but it should not disable the grid so the player can...

Re: Support for Big Sur/M1 macs

Factorio runs fine using Rosetta 2.

Which kinda makes it even less likely there will be a native version.

I have 25 steam engins with 5 boilers. 5 engins on each boiler. I can produce 95 MW. but they only produce 21 MW Why?
Not enough boilers. You need one boiler for every 2 steam engines (assuming vanilla Factorio).

Re: Inserter Speed Small Changes

They have 864 degrees per second which would math out to be 25 ticks per rotation, however in game it comes out to 26 ticks, I assume due to requiring inserters to take the same time to go back and forth. When picking from a chest, the inserter will make two motions of 180 degrees each. With rotati...

But when doing this at some point you have to open the signal to allow the train to actually come through. Just open the signal when a signal in front of it turns yellow, like so (video): https://giant.gfycat.com/YellowishLightDowitcher.webm The signal is closed all the time until a train reserves ...
