Re: [0.14] Blueprint Items Request 0.1.0

Re: Best way to defend

A steam backup plant can easily supply enough power. Why would you use a system to give you the reliability of steam when you have steam? You say that as if every steam setup were essentially infinite in size or something. That's just ridiculous - it's not so. Look at the picture of my base I poste...

Re: Best way to defend

And you don't "burn" any energy, solar power is endless. You have 50 solar panels there producing energy, and you burn all of that energy by sending it into radars. I look at that setup and I see 50 solar panels that "aren't connected right" - they should be powering the grid. D...

Re: Best way to defend

You guys might be interested in how to make solar reliable for laser defence . That seems too complicated, wasteful, and flawed. It's wasteful because you're burning up a lot of power just for a sensor (though IIRC later in the thread someone has a better version of it). It's flawed because (if I'm...

Re: Best way to defend

Iron Curtains are effective. I've been calling them my "shields". When I start the first ammo belts (with a splitter so I am sourcing ammo from the "center" rather than one end) and the guns get set up progressively in both directions, eventually enveloping my base, that's "...

Re: [0.13.5 LAN game crashes with more than 10 mods

Based on the bit of the log that bobingabout quoted here: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=28395#p180050 My guess is that adding more mods is causing UDP packets to get large enough to exceed your MTU . (One could partially confirm this by using a network sniffer and seeing if ma...

Re: Pause Logistics Queues / Turn off logistic system requests

Short version: I too would like a way to disable character logistics slots. (I also like DukeAl's idea for multiple configurations/presets.) And I would like the character logistic slots to be automatically disabled when I dump my inventory, and maybe a one-time request button/key (that works when c...

Re: Red Circuit Factory (basic)

If you put the plastic on the other side of the belt, then you can use that same belt to output your red circuits. Then just put a smart inserter at the end of that belt to collect the red circuits into a single box.

Re: TheCity - Custom Scenario for 0.12.10

I've just finished playing through this scenario. It was OK, though some stuff was broken and even without the breakages it was far too easy for my taste (in resources, combat, and "puzzles"). Some feedback: Note that even though some of the below may read like complaining, to the extent t...

Re: A harder blueprint for those who want a challenge

When I started playing this map I figured it would be a finite size map, because why would someone give the player "infinite" resources in the starting area if you're also giving them an infinite number of resources on the rest of the map? But now it looks like that's not the case - at lea...
