Hmm, okay. The in-game tip says 390kW:

Steam power energy conversion efficiency?

Just noticed, searched but didn't find anything. Boilers consume 390kW. Steam engines produce 510kW. With the standard 13:10 boiler:steam engine ratio, effectively ~100% of the fuel energy consumed by boilers is turned into electricity. Even if steam engines were implemented as a perfect Carnot cycl...

Re: Friday Facts #173 - Nuclear stuff is almost done

Was it already suggested to turn the discarded "advanced" reactors into some next-level research, like advanced oil processing goes after basic oil processing? Probably add in some later release, and force reactors require reconfiguring (or maybe even replacing) to make use of the new tech...

Re: 0.13 Rainbow Belts and other madness

There are some tricks to prevent Rainbow Belts from locking: The belt measuring and the belt blocking flow should have identical travel time of items to the splitter merging into the circle. Include measuring at the belts before/after the ideal measurement spot. Split the Belt at one spot so items ...

Re: 0.13 Rainbow Belts and other madness

Guys, did you ever see circular belts with splitter input, such as the rainbow belts, locking up when full (stop rotating)? Like, there's a continuous input to both sides of the splitter, and continuous unused output of the splitter, and the splitter thinks it needs to do nothing, versus passing the...
