Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

They're both plain old steam, just at different temperatures. A while back, I bled off the hot steam from a test reactor into my standard power plant, and the steam in the tanks mixed up to ~350 degrees with the turbines showing an intermediate level of "available performance". I don't know how much...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Has there been any !!Science!! done on steam temperature mixing?
For example, if you mix nuclear steam (500) with coal steam (165) are there any inefficiencies or rounding issues that will change the total energy value?

Re: Power poles self-destruct on their own in .15?

Why would you not put efficiency modules in a base with isolated power?
18kW or even 36kW per drill is much more reasonable.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Hi Guys, I am trying to get a long arm inserter to only output U238 from a Koverax refinery using circuits onto a specific belt, how do I do this? Have the arm output to a box which is locked down to max 1 slot. Put one U238 in the box. The arm will then only grab U238 since that's all it can add t...

Re: Friday Facts #234 - Office pictures

After watching that whole video, I think I agree. Player armor should have some laser resistance, since that would make sense with combat against other humans(?) historically as the tech was developed, and PLD should be weaker than big stationary laser turrets. Radar detection of land mines would be...

Re: Friday Facts #230 - Engine modernisation

Wow. They are very good at this. From what I can see on the screenshots, the first one was definitely unintentional, the second as well but the third... I do not think the third was unintentional. It looks remarkably similar to the Factorio demo as it ran on my last PC, except that the player chara...

My First Nuclear Reactor

I threw the switch on my first reactor today, and I'm quite proud that it worked! :D There are a few issues, but it seems I got about 270% fuel efficiency (87 GJ of steam out for 4 cells in, possibly some extra steam in the pipes not counted) I underestimated the water requirement slightly, so it do...

Hi there, I'm new to factorio and looked at the signal delayer 2.0... I tried to reproduce the thing but the screen wiring to not match the diagram and if I do exactly what the flow chart shows, I can't get it to work. Do you have any example/blueprint I could use of this one? Or maybe something di...

Re: What do you think about ideas of "assembly line" ?

Gears and pipes are used in multiple recipes or as end products in themselves. As far as I can see what you're talking about is a switch from parallel to serial assembly. Instead of having three assembly machines working for 3 seconds each to produce 3 products, (averaging 1/s), you'd be having 3 as...

Re: Railway Safety Crossing

I've had similar constructs in an older base. The most difficult thing to get right was always to not trap the player on the rails when the train comes :P. My crossings default to open gates btw, and only close when the train comes, as i was annoyed by constantly ramming into the gate when walking ...

Re: serial stations / waiting bay as station

What if you have the wait condition of the waiting bay be 'until Signal', and that signal is set based on the main unloader in that lane being free? Have the main station transmit the train ID to the waiting bay station in the same lane. When that signal goes away, the waiting train will pull ahead ...
