Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

Made "a few" improvements to the Furnace design: https://youtu.be/hKnnk31yKuw Now it can supply coal as well as ore. And it can also switch between ore types. Note that I had the steel recipe researched, which made things particularly tricky considering output iron plates are on the same b...

Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

Hmm, would have to investigate it more closely to be sure. After closer inspection I believe that output inserters with inserter stack bonus are bugged. Output inserters randomly take one cycle longer than necessary to drop their payload on belt even when the free space is there. Which could be rel...

Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

It works as long as the 1-to-1 input/output ratio is kept, inserter stack size doesn't change that. As long as they are synchronized, yes. But the inserters will pick from both sides of the belt with a larger stack bonus while always outputting on the same belt tile. On average this shouldn't hurt,...

WIP Furnace contraption: https://fat.gfycat.com/WeeEverlastingGoldfish.webm When input ingredients are picked up from belt there's always a space left, so why not use that space for output? ;) This contraption is designed so that the space left from removing an item is consumed by the output.

Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

Nice thing is that once you set up the packets and let them onto the belt, you don't need to make everywhere those "signals", they will simply keep their distance that was set up by combinatorics that let them into the system. Problem is if belt is not straight and belt sides will not be ...

Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

the memory cell keeps count from the inserters. A solution based on counts of items on belts is not what I'm looking for here. That's a "whole belt" kinda solution. I'm looking for finer grained control of what actually happens on the belt. Like for example: Contraption #3: 4-to-1 Belt Mu...

Re: Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

memory cells are also good for keeping track/controlling what and how much of something is on a belt. ;) Yeah that's another option. I wanted a combinator free solution. Otherwise each segment of 10~11 tile belt would need a set of combinators. My solution only requires some green wire. ;) The othe...

Contraption #1: Rail Signal Like behavior for belts. My first step into making a circuit controlled belt system. The conveyor belt system in Factorio is hard to beat in it's efficiency at controlling supply VS demand. Belts are basically a circuit network of their own. Not only they move items forwa...

Yoyo's Belt+Circuit contraptions

So I've started some research into working with belts in my circuit creations. Along the way I noticed that the output of a belt in "Read contents" and "Hold" mode is not what I expected. I was hoping that on a full belt the value read would be constant, it is not. I made a littl...

I like this :) https://zippy.gfycat.com/FakeUnfortunateAracari.webm This was more of a proof-of-concept of some ideas I had. It seems that Factorio's circuit network is somewhat suitable implementing some kind of SIMD architecture. The parallelism happens across the different signals. But handling ...

Re: Shift Register+Bitwise display

The display part might also be interesting on it's own. Each lamp is controllable by a single bit of a signal. It's seems scalable to many more signals without increasing the amount of combinators too much. Certainly something I will investigate in the future. :) Expanded the display build to a 682...
