Yep, completely agree. I already faced such picture. Now I have a theoretical baseline to explain it. Thanks!

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

The faster they travel, the faster they consume that "travel distance" power and the sooner they must return to charge. Oh, thanks, now I calmed down a bit. As your logic seems to be obviously correct, I'd like to introduce here The Mission :) And the mission of our bots is to transfer so...

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

First of all, disentius, thanks for this calculation. It helps. Now, the only reason I'm doing overkills that is to ease expansion. Like, remote smeltery should have a some unused (now) capacity so that every time I expand I don't need to rebuild it. As I don't know when will I stop, it seems the be...

I have vanilla infinity chest. With loader, it provides belt of stuff. Can it gather it from the belt? How?

Re: Fully compressing a blue belt with one box

I like the lower one. Thanks :)
BTW - how do you spawn these purple undergrounds in Sandbox? I assume it's unlimited consumption belt? I haven't found a console command for it.

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

As for ore > smelters , you can reference probably topic where buffer chests unload faster than a train arrives https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=58728 and this is just great thing I believe. I also think on applying of this approach on Copper Ore smeltery. But for Iron Ore smelt...

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

as robot worker speed tech gets higher, the number of bots each port can support drops , approaching 4 bots per port. Whaaat??? Can you please explain? So, the faster my robots are the more Ports I need? But why? Why not simply use the belts to supply those chests and forego the bots entirely in th...

You can do it in a 5x5 square.
Actually, that doesn't seem to work for me. Am I doing something wrong?

How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

Hi there! So, example: I have bots unloading trains with ore / loading trains with plates for my remote smelter like this: 2021-05-02 14_08_43-Factorio 1.1.32.png And It takes about 1500-2500 robots depending on maximum travel distance. I realize how do I know if I have enough Robots. But what about...

Re: High throughput smelter

Oh, thanks! It so good to know somebody uses your creations! Undergrounds - yeah, I tried to avoid middle section it but this is the simplest way I found to make it size-close to yours. Still, many undergrounds can be replaced. Large amounts of ground belts still stress me when I see it because of t...

Re: How do I save UPS for megabase?

Thanks again for the advices and ideas! By topics: To train mining. Thanks for the BP, NotRexButCaesar! It's the most easiest way of to-train-mining that I've ever seen. I tried it for a couple of days. I liked it and I think I'll use it someday, but my mines now are just conveyors with 8x8 balancer...

Re: Fully compressing a blue belt with one box

I think I can improve it a little bit. We can make it shorter and splitter is not needed actually. 2021-05-01 19_51_57-Factorio 1.1.32.png or, if you need more space 2021-05-01 20_00_41-Factorio 1.1.32.png Also, as 1 chest > blue belt this setup does its job, meanwhile, it's easier to have 3-wide se...

Hi Bauer, I'm glad I helped. For me, now your design works just perfect in all possible combinations including both Sandbox and my FreePlay scenario. I've just completed 3-hour building of remote copper & iron smelteries for 2 trains x16 blue belts output each using your previous design yesterda...

Re: 4 belts beaconed smelter row

I think I'll make a refence here to the continuation of this conversation. There are ready-to-go designs for compressed 4 blue belts of plates and compressed blue belt of steel in this topic: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?p=541574 Inspired by this topic, so it should be mentioned probably.

Hi! Thanks for this tuning! I tested it and it really works well. I stacked it to 32 output lines, 2 trains x 16 lines and it's quite small and very stable. The only thing I cannot understand is why you are saying about 5 RED belts input. In case I run 5 RED belts I'm getting gaps. I'm NOT getting g...

Re: How do I save UPS for megabase?

Thanks a lot for these great advices! I’m really excited to do some adjustment based on these. Just as a thoughts: You probably shouldn't do what Nilaus does and build a gigantic bot network that covers everything. That's very bad. I do it sometimes but as in Nilaus’s case it’s only 1 stage of endga...
