Re: When can I (safely) start with nuclear power?

... on megabase, it is possible to have more than 100 reactors, running > 70% all the time. wastage is negligible, ups can be spent on better places. not to say reactors spans multiple chunks, so wire them together is a hassle. at that scale "smart-reactor" = "hassle-reactor". U...

Re: When can I (safely) start with nuclear power?

I never even considered a non-smart reactor. I figured that this is not done... do kovarex, the process is slow but growth is exponential. eventually you have more U235 than you ever need, even with nukes. so imo just ignore the "smart" part, i dont think its worth the hassle. before you ...

Can you elaborate on this? He has elaborate enough. Tldr pfr is weak and clumsy. we already had to make decision what equipment we wanna put into the left over space.

Re: Nerf the Portable Fusion Reactor?

I don't think it should be nerfed... PFR already has a lot of downsides: it's very large and gives just twice more power than 16 solar panels. I think it would be better to add another alternative generator. It will be smaller and way more powerful, but will require fuel. So, you will have a choice...

Re: Come up with new infinite research

Honestly i dont like the idea about removing evolution cap. Factorio is not a war game (for me).

I prefer QoL, not "research me or lose".

Too late or not is subjective, for me im willing to change it at a cost of my old bp or weird craft time numbers. But i know im in the minority. So i move on.

Easy to mod or not is also subjective, just like math teacher saying math is easy.

Thanks for the report however I don't see this as ever changing. It has worked like that since day 0 of pipes being added to the game. That's the price we pay for fluids having actual flow through pipes rather than the electric network style instant transfer.
maybe put this into wont fix.

Re: Loading Multiple Trains At Same Station

That would involve using a combinator setup to enable the inserters based on the train ID. Very fragile and complicated to set up. Which is why the vast majority of players go with having two stations, one to load stone, and one to load bricks. red wire is enough, no need combinator. connect all in...
