Re: Light rail

What would be the difference to a belt? Items only move in chunks of wagon size? You could use Deadlocks crating mod. Instead of your mini train you would have filled and empty crates that travel on normal belts. Going 500-2000 tiles is quite a lot for belt, and just feels wrong to me. But it's als...

Re: Light rail

AAI is way too much of an overhaul for my needs, but logicarts look interesting. I consider them too powerful though. One of my big concerns with designing this would be making sure that it doesn't end up replacing belts or trains, just complimenting them. I take joy in tradeoffs.

Light rail

I'm thinking of making this as a mod, but wanted to post it anyways. To me, one of the more frustrating things in the mid game (and even into late game) is moving a large quantity of items a medium distance. Long distance is obviously full on rail. Short distance is belt. Medium distance is... eh. Y...

Re: Dynamic Stack Sizes - an alternative to Even Distribution

What I've always wanted was something like shift + number + click to drop that amt * 10 in, right click to drop * 5 the number. That gives you 5-50 easily accessible on the fly. Howabout shift + number + lclick to drop 1 * number (1-10), or shift + rclick to drop 10 * number (10-100). I imagine the...

Re: Dynamic Stack Sizes - an alternative to Even Distribution

I think part of the issue will be changing stack size would also change stack size in the machines. I want to put 50 coal in something to run for a long time, while also being able to put 5 coal in something to run for a little bit of time. What I've always wanted was something like shift + number +...

Re: [MOD 0.17] Industrial Revolution

I love sushi malls (I tend to sushi my science in vanilla) and this mod makes them so much more useful. Back on the "iron is too far away" topic - I think it's totally valid to have it potentially be really far away, but it felt bad to me because of the lack of rail. You get left with three options....

so nobody cares about monetization of popular youtube video with factorio letsplay using IR?
Why should it be required to be allowed? Deadlock made the content, deadlock gets to decide how money can be made from it. Not everything needs to be monetized.

Re: Train speed formula

So https://calculatorio.com/train_acceleration/ is accurate then? No, it's using the old code that was on the wiki which has the wrong friction calc.

Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

Loving the biter update. Now we just need biter base creep to prevent turret cheesing and maybe a couple more biter types. The military balance changes in the last few major versions have actually made turret creep kind of outmoded. It's not like it was back in .14 and prior. It's not bad, it's jus...

Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

35 minutes into the game, and the biters are overwhelming my defenses. Don't spread out your turrets. Biters will "dive" at the first military they encounter, with a range a decent bit wider than the turret itself. You can still cover quite a wide area, and if you need a wider area you can make two...

Re: After Rocket launch - keep playing - Game changer - Tower Defense

Artillery lets you get into this. Basically the first part of what you ask for, but they go after the arty rather than the silo. There are a lot of excellent mods for expanding the military of the game. You're going to find much better expansions in that regard from mods. Biters in the base game are...

Re: [0.17.72] Please set unresearched blueprints on assembly machine and other factories so it's same as all other build

I would imagine the inability to set the recipe is the only thing actually stopping you from doing the production. It would mean having an external factor block the production, rather than the lack of recipe itself.

Re: Getting that itch to play Factorio yet again.

The modding community is stronger than every. Do a vanilla rocket, then try Industrial Revolution or one of the other big mods. They're getting to practically be games of their own.
