Re: Questions about pollution and the F7 key?..

The F5 key debug overlays show a lot of information, most of it not actually related to pollution cloud itself. If you want understand+use debug overlays I instead recommend pressing the F4 key and try each of them one by one reading it's name description each time to familiarize yourself with them....

Re: Better Nerf the Fish

So it would seem you are transporting all materials by car and putting them in chests? That's a lot of manual labor There are two options: Have just a handful of mining drills to avoid pollution from ever reaching biters Place as many mining drills as possible and gather resources as quickly as pos...

Re: Better Nerf the Fish

That is quite interesting, if I had to take a guess on how you did this I'd say you would turn off your factory every now and then and wait for the pollution to be absorbed by the trees. You should also consider using efficiency modules, cuz they reduce pollution generation up to 80% and I can see ...

Re: DeathWorld SpeedRun

It's all in the map seed. ;) For example this map gives you around 50 minutes before the even the first attack, and that's while filling the iron, copper and stone to the brim with electric miners. Note that those three large scary bases in the middle of the forest mostly don't spawn, only one spawn...

Re: Better Nerf the Fish

I don't see it that way. Wiping out all nearby nests will drastically decrease the size and frequency of biter attacks on your base so you can get away with weaker defenses. So I see it as an investment - I spend some time clearing nests so that I don't have to be constantly replacing turrets and a...

Re: Better Nerf the Fish

Small biters are just super easy to cheese, and I don't think that's unintentional either. Anyway, clearing bases is just half of the equation. You kinda have to defend that territory or biters will just expand right back into it. Specially since clearing many spawners drives up evolution meaning bi...

Re: UPS - at which base size it starts to become a problem

Re: Train stop question

Put a train stop on both tracks if you want to prevent that behavior. The extra train stop doesn't need to be configured or added to any train schedule, it just needs to be there.

like the L key shows a dropdown of all of them
Which is kinda a mess because "Network #6 - 21 cells" doesn't quite tell which one it is or where it is located.

Re: Add a hotkey for the Electric Network Info panel

Why is there not hotkey for this menu? I'm so confused right now. Which electric network would the hotkey open? While there's usually just one network, there can be many different ones. Clicking on a power pole specifies which electric network to inspect, because each power pole can only belong to ...

Re: Different colors on different electric networks

This actually does not work for electric networks because they can intersect one another without connecting. Intersections are rare enough. It even more rare to have many networks overlaying each other. And if a player intentionally has too many electrical networks overlaying each other for the amo...

Re: Different colors on different electric networks

How do you decide which network get a different color, which ones get the same color ? (I assume we don't go with infinite color palette) Only five colors would work fine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_color_theorem And while we are at it: Fluid networks should be shown on the map with a simil...

Re: How to sample a signal based on a clock?

This works if the value changes rapidly. But Im trying to monitor accumulators. The values are pretty static, so I need to know whether its been increasing/decreasing over a period of several ticks.

Using a simple SR latch is the right way to go. What you need to do is to modify the SET and RESET conditions to react to the accumulator charging/discharging, regardless of the actual charge level.
