Re: Mining drill ore selection

The island now is lost, because when I've seen how drills was blocked on production I've started a new one, but it was a bit different. Lot of resources, because each has more than 2000 each tile, but too mixed. A small part of uranium, a 10 tiles in average, surrounded by 20 tiles of coal, then, a ...

Re: Mining drill ore selection

Yep,it's harder build both coal and other sourcesbelts because you have to feed burner mines. Electricity is cheaper, specifically, because you dont need to have more than electrics poles, at the beginning, and you can mine a larger area with just a mine. At the beginning, where reources are limited...

Re: Mining drill ore selection

Selecting ores can give a better chance of get the selected ore, maybe, but not exclusively extraction. The ore selection actually is a personal preference, but the main purpose is not this one. And for sure the problem is not filtering them outside mines, but inside. If you build a mining drill ove...

Mining drill ore selection

TL;DR The mining drill can extract different tipes of ores if there is a mixed field. What if you let people select the kind of ores they will extract? What ? Let electric mining drills selkect the kind of ores to extract as priority or to ignore others at all and drill only 1 kind of ores. Why ? T...

Re: Peace with Aliens

Nice idea the wood farming.
You can build trees where needed, for absorb pollution and maybe replace the wood you farm for get building ground.

Re: If you could walk on pipes in Factorio, would you build less underground pipes?

I'd never build less underground pipes. An underground pipe behaves as a single pipe instead of all the separate sections a straight pipe would use. Sure, but they have the same amount of storage thaht 2 single sections of pipes give, instead of the 10x storage you get from 10 different units of si...

Re: Charging bots

But I want to ask something about this argument.
I have watched carefully at a single roboport.
I've seen recently added robot go to charge when others that already are at the roboport still here to wait.
Is it a bug or something else that I have to report?
Or is it a wanted issue?

Self sustained computer energy solar/battery, but not only. IMHO, add a double check on belt and inserter putting a stop before the inserter place. If there are less thing by inserter, the belt stop, if the belt is sending less materials, then the inserter stop. Can be done with a few combinators or...

Re: What programming language Factorio is written in?

And yeah, the amount of dev time and experience that's gone into Factorio is not something you will be able to replicate as a rookie programmer. Not totally true. You CAN, but you have to dedicate lot of time first learning, then planning and last programming it. This require years doing it alone a...

Re: If you could walk on pipes in Factorio, would you build less underground pipes?

If underground pipes will store it's full lenght value of fluid, for me it's not a problem, but why dont make all pipes undergrounds and divide them in simple pipes and complex pipes instead? Simple pipes are simple, just a pipe n/s or e/w. Complex pipes are autojoining pipes that can connect any su...

Re: portable solar panels

Since 0.15 I have started two maps, more or less railword and the difficulty is a bit above default. The problem is that it takes ages to get to the maxed armour and fusion reactor. In both games I just chased to get roboport, panels and modular armour as quick as possible. The problem is that it r...

Re: [Klonan] New Hope level-04 map location outside game accessibility

That's not a "generated map", but a fixed one in a campaign.
That's why I was asking it here.
And I was just a bit curious on what has made it happen. Maybe a cross data with other maps in the campaign files?
Curiosity kill the cat, but I'm not a cat so... :) :D :mrgreen: :lol:

Re: [Klonan] New Hope level-04 map location outside game accessibility

It's not a bug or a dangerous thing, just a map section with resources that you cant reach. As habit I try to kill everithing on the campaigns maps before going on mission objectives and this make me think "Why that place is here?". It's here from even older versions, because I've tried it on 0.13 g...

[Klonan] New Hope level-04 map location outside game accessibility

On the level 4 in the New hope campaign there is a whole map section outside game territory of the playable map.
Dunno why, but I've vanquished all the biters in the level and have seen this anomaly.
I dunno if call it an issue, an anomaly or a bug, but I report it as found.

Sadly the change of player avatar make him seems so... workman, that the logical story of falling from the sky and gaining the way back to sky seems not realistic, when the avatar from 0.6 is much "spaceman" looking and follow the story much better. :P
