Re: Anyone standardizing on very long trains?

i agree that long trains are much more better than short trains, especially using nuclear fuel. the only downside is the bigger footprint. my suggestion is to place rail between (through) your base. now the offloading length is as long as your base. Was wondering if there were any good bases that we...

Remember back in the days, fluid amounts were 10 times smaller, but were decimals. 100% richness was equal to 1/s.
oh yeah, they change the unit to solve rounding error issues with circuit thingy. i guess now +1 reason to abolish this ancient thing.

Oil patch show oil/s instead of %

Example, instead of showing 80% oil patch, show 8 oil/s . This applies to tooltip and map view (total oil patch). Dont really know why using % in the first place. Percentage usually compare to something that is 100%. Eg: A discount of 20% means compare the reduction to 100% original price. In this c...

Re: Pipette work for crafting list if "pick ghost item.." is set to yes

A workaround is set filter in hotbar.

Pipette doesnt interact with craft menu. Press Q basically interact with entities behind the menu, if there exist one. Changing this is big project, isnt likely to happen.

Copy paste includes circuit wire. But fog is annoying though.
copy paste is fine for the subsequent copies but the first one would be nice to click drag.
Devil's advocate: clumsy user might accidentally connect unintended entities in concentrated areas.

Re: Bigger miners covering a bigger area for mid and late game.

i like the idea that humongous miners comes with other logistic challenge to overcome. look at turrets: tier 1: gun, require items (magazines) tier 2: laser, require power tier 3: flamethrower, require fluids, has minimum range. miners: tier 1: burner, require items (fuel) tier 2: electric, require ...

Re: Miners with bigger radius for mid and late game.

same size bigger radius, no. ocd me would just clump them together, nothing change.
what i want is bigger size, like Omega Drill

edit: seems like i misunderstood the title: not mining radius, but miner's radius (i.e. size) ._.

Re: Make production graphs cleaner

My guess, currently it counts how many of each item is produced x minutes ago, and divide by x. Bigger x for bigger timescale and vice versa.

From math perspective, I wonder how to implement smoothing, probably need convolution with bell curve, and therefore cost ups. Its not that easy.

Just so you know, the autotorio website exists. only works for vanilla. Why? I can't think about any situation where it would be useful to replace entity to a totally unrelated entity.... Upgrade planner already allows to replace anything belonging to the same fast-replace group. If the mod doesn't...
