Fluid wagon setup

So I built a load/unload station for crude, built a L-FF and assigned it to the same depot as my L-CC trains. Fluid demand at the unload triggered a delivery and LTN sent the only fluid train I have to fetch the fluid, delivered it and went back to the depot. How did this happen? I was expecting an ...

Re: Thanks

Of course it isn't all good, I do have complaints. Better trains => more trains => more rail + less predicable schedules => more death by train :evil: This mod should come with a warning when you install it. On this map killed by biters: 0, killed by trains: 5. All my careful station design and trai...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Helicopters

I missed this mod in 0.16, thanks for updating it. Look forward to going back to having belts planned for me, doing it manually is annoying.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Helicopters

No idea what PAX means PAX is short for passenger outside Factorio, but many people on the forums here have redefined it as "player access". So it is a train system for players to get around the base quickly. My suggestion would be to forget about getting around the base in trains, rip up all his P...

Thanks

Checked the other topics and couldn't find a similar one. Hope this is not against subforum rules. Basically thanks for a great mod. Huge enabler for trains for me. Thanks to this mod I have: Reduced rolling stock, no need to dedicate a train per route. Reduced rail congestion. Fewer trains on the t...

Re: Filtered or locked toolbelt slot get blueprint if items 0

That's planned for 0.17 :). I read that FFF and completely forgot. My mistake, this is already covered - you are correct. As a bonus, this goes well with another idea: building ghost buildings without having the required item. When you click a shortcut for something you don't have any items of, you...

Filtered or locked toolbelt slot get blueprint if items 0

I have certain spots on my toolbelt filtered (middle-click) for certain items. I tend to run out of these items. So I have a filtered toolbelt spot with no items, I click on the empty spot and ... nothing happens. What I would like to happen is that I get a blueprint of that item in my cursor which ...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

New splitter behaviour is AMAZING . Great change, enhances gameplay options, enhances belts without directly changing throughput. Perfect. https://i.imgflip.com/22njrj.jpg Upgrade my bot throughput - place a roboport, done. Upgrade my belt throughput - individually place each tile of belt, undergro...

Wow, 19 pages of comments.

Re: Electric Networks Map Lines - Lines not Lining Up

If this suggestion doesn't make the cut in the current pole redesign (Friday Facts #195 - Poles re-design) then it is unlikely to ever happen and should be moved to "Outdated/Not implemented".

Re: Travel over Water: Boats, Ships, Canus / Bridges / Tunnels

bridges: again a dirty way to code it but you could make it so that when a train gets onto a bridge its collision is turned off for the duration of it being on the bridge as the game already overlaps graphics already based on where certain things are placed thus using that one could make a "bridge"...

Re: Toolbar flyout for selection of subtypes of objects

For belts and assemblers I just gave up and use the best one I have access to. Even when blue belt is not needed, I use it. One less thing on the toolbar and one less to think about even if it is wasteful. But inserters take up multiple spots on my toolbelt. Be nice to get a fast inserter by default...

Re: Multiple Trains vs Bigger Trains?

When would it be better to have multiple rails and stackers rather than having a bigger train with more locomotives? I don't personally build them so this is speculation but Megabases would require multiple trains. They consume so many resources that you need to be simultaneously mining multiple or...

From the looks of them yours was the only reactor design series which smoothly...
