Re: Inserter capblae of extracting from burner inserter

Imho it makes no sense that one can chain boilers (that still works in 0.15, right?) but not furnaces. As it is now, chaining furnaces is more usefull than chaining boilers, but on the technical level, they are two widely different things : boiler have a single slot, so their inventory can be treat...

Re: Inserter capblae of extracting from burner inserter

Yeah, burner inserter is kind of useless, niche at best, and by no means this suggestion changes anything. It does significantly changes burner only challenges, for better or worse since, as you say, headache is part of the challenge. Still, this would not be an outrigth ease of the challenge since,...

Inserter capblae of extracting from burner inserter

TL;DR Have inserters capable of extracting coal (or any fuel) out of the burner inserter slot, like it is possible from boilers and burner drills. What I think inserter should be capable to extract coal (or any fuel) out of the burner inserter slot. Since inserter don't have input slot (and have a ...

Re: circuit connection for turrets

why I should count the ammo in the turrets. Either it's enough or it's too less. If too less I will see that very soon. If not I need to refill, until it is enough. There are base defense designs on the forums where the walls have train stations to bring ammo, and the stations get turned off when t...

Re: Fluid mechanics

Here is a simple article that I found in about 10 seconds of googling that sums it up reasonably well. The key point here is that pressure is always a vector, hence it can never be negative, but instead it refers to the relative direction to which pressure (force) vector is acting, ie is it an inwa...

Re: [0.15.x] Fluid mechanics

Common mistakes [...] - pumping into entity with high zero-pressure [...] - pressure-ignoring pumping into low zero-pressure entity Pressure-ignoring pumping should be targeted on higher zero-pressure entity, because later natural pressure difference may be used for free. So.... which is it? Pumpin...

Idle machines, power drain, how to measure it

What is idle drain In factorio, many electrical machines (processing machines, inserters and laser turrets) have a power drain, which is the power that the machine will consume whenever it is connected to an electrical network. This idle drain adds up with the functioning power, so for example, a w...
