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...

Re: Combinator Contraptions

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 ...

Re: Wagons capacity and weight

Cargo wangon capacity was increased a little bit few updates ago. We didn't want to increase it too much, because even now people build trains with just two or three wagons. We are afraid, increasing cargo wagon capacity would result in people building less trains and building trains with just one ...

Dry Ore Patch Train Restrictor

I've made a little self-resetting restrictor for my ore patches that should be generally useful, particularly on maps with many small ore patches. Suggestions for improvement are welcome. The goal is: 1) Require the station to have at least a Minimum amount ore collected before inviting trains to vi...

An excellent source of iron!

The inserter desk lamp is a nifty idea, since they are articulated in similar ways.
But a USB powered "lamp" lamp ought to be simpler and more universal. And there will shortly be a mod for wiring in-game control signals to it.

Re: Belts, how far is too far?

1) Yep. Belts have lower throughput and far more lag end to end. And you can't use the belt for other types of shipments. 2) Rails are omnidirectional. You can run trains back up the track, and put a factory where the ore patch was without changing anything except the stops. The track will also cont...

Re: We can not dig out landfill

I like the idea of building bridges with concrete and iron/steel as an option, rather than simply dumping landfill rocks to make more land. (Rail bridges would need to be added too.) Such a bridge would allow you to walk/drive across it, but not build things on it (since it is a building already), a...

Re: Accumulator / Solar panel ratio

I found a 1:1 ratio is a great fit for my needs; that allows me to reserve a hearty 10% margin before the emergency power logic kicks in.

Between laser turrets and 30 MW of partial duty cycle factories, power use is quite spiky.
