Re: Specify belt throuput

Thank you all for the help. 500 was just an example. Im building a factory with belt pulling by demand. Im trying to learn how to make this things so I can adjust a different value according to my needs So the belts have this throughput: Yellow: 800 items/min Red: 1600 items/min Blue: 2400 items/mi...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Quality of Life research

Version 2.2.x has fixed issues with effects not being set properly. I have put a workaround in place that should prevent any issues with regards to this happening now. Right now, the only thing that should cause the effects to get out of sync is manually un-researching a technology with a command (...

Re: [kovarex] [16.1] Items on belt creeping forward at specific position

This particular behaviour is only happening when the belt is a circle As you can very clearly see on the video I linked , it happens on straight track. It seems to be when a transition from white to blue state happens. 12 seconds in, the item after the second set of inserters on the left jumps forw...

Re: Version 0.16.16

And another feature bites the dust. I don't see why these changes are bundled together, there's nothing prohibiting the per-item nature, and still having lanes separated. Separating the lanes avoids the issue people complain about, the per-item behavior is what facilitates the sorters and priority s...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

As many have stated, I don't really see the point in nerfing logistic robots, because for more throughput, you build more bots, for more power, you build more solar. I think there are two keys design points that should be kept in mind: Allow people to play according to their playstyle. Factorio has ...

if you need some extra input to help troubleshoot this let me know, but it seems like something you mentioned yourself on the changelog for version 1.0 and i'm guessing 0.16 might have broken your safeguard for migrations that affect these values If you could supply me a list of mods you were using...

Re: Friday Facts #221 - 0.16 is out

Having read all replies, it seems most people are either for: letting everything compress, or at least letting sideloading compress again. Personally I think, going from 4 methods (splitters, inserting on undergrounds, sideloading, and circuit timed insertion) to compress a belt to only splitters is...

Re: [16.1] Items on belt creeping forward at specific position

I've just ran some tests with compressing belts with the circuit network, and this bug is preventing that from functioning too. It feels safe to assume that any combinator contraptions relying on the timings of belts are broken in 0.16, even those that don't sideload, or rely on compression. This se...

Re: [16.2] Several items with extreme compression on a belt

Yes, I just did some testing with this, and it seems to have probably originated from something along these lines, but the decompression is indeed very weird, so I'm going to rename the topic to indicate that's what's happening.

[Rseding91] [16.3] swap_stack broken with empty LuaItemStack and cursor

If the player has an item from the quickbar in his hand, whilst a script executes swap_stack, and the stacks involved are both the one the player has in their cursor and an empty LuaItemStack , it will fail and return false. Expected: Swap happens the same as it would when there is an item in the la...

Re: Checkboxes not raising `on_gui_click`

Strange that the docs say this. I've done a lot of GUI stuff in latest 0.15, and checkboxes definitely did not fire the on_click event. I think it's a mistake to make two events input events fire for one action though. If your code can handle it fine, you can just use the same function as event hand...

Re: [16.0] Sideloading no longer compresses belt

This is a major change to how the game works. If it is intended by the devs, they should at least explictly tell this in the change log. If not, it should be considered a bug imo. I agree, these changes should've been mentioned in the changelog. But afaik in 0.15 there are only 4 ways to fully comp...

Re: [kovarex] [16.0] Inserting on underground belt behaves different

Understandable, although a well known trick among veteran players, it not very intuitive. I've been doing a bit more testing, and it seems that out of the 3 ways to compress previously, only splitters remain. Sideloading now also no longer compresses: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&am...

Since 0.16.0 sideloading onto a belt no longer increases its compression, something that was added in 0.13.0.

[kovarex] [16.0] Inserting on underground belt behaves different

In 0.16.0 the behavior of inserting on an underground belt has changed. I am not sure if this is intentional, but it was not mentioned in the changelog afaik. The main downsides of this new approach are: It no longer reliably compresses a belt (48 steel furnaces with yellow output inserter, where th...
