What kind of game settings are you using that you need multiple smelters like that before blue science ?!?
I can't answer this without validating your behavior, which I won't do. You make too many posts and at least 1/3 of them are insulting someone.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

The FFF claims "worker robots are a good motivation and reward for unlocking Chemical science pack" but I disagree. Motivation is for things in sight, not something far over the horizon. It already took so long to unlock them that Nanobots is one of the most popular mods. Now it takes long...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

I just realized. If oil is so frustrating that they're willing to break 1/2 the early game over it, maybe they should just let players walk through pipes. What's really causing the frustration, hm?

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Please, don't make silly comparisons. Trains only need stone, steel, green circuits and basic engines. While conbots also need lubricant and batteries, and 45 red circuits per roboport to actually use them. (And personal roboports need 50 blue science.) Ingredients aren't the point; if techs were a...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

I wonder how many first time players actually use robots, too. I certainly didn't use them first time around, I didn't even know they exist and I had no idea that I need the storage chest for them. These things are better nowadays, but still. They are a powerful tool but completely optional. I used...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

I think it would make more sense to move sulfur and batteries to after chemical sci too. Only affects accumulatiors. Cliff Explosive, batteries for Modular Armor, Rockets. I'm not sure rockets will ever be good, but with Laser Turrets pushed farther, they may fill a niche for long-range attacks tha...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

There is no way to get blue science quickly. Either we can have construction bots before it, or we can't. I fear Wube isn't getting enough feedback on this, because it's happening in the same FFF as far more controversial changes to Basic Oil. Of course they don't get feedback about it anymore. Onl...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

So, how feasible would it be to hand-craft the blue science required for construction robots (and pre-requisites) ? Not at all, for three reasons I can think of. There isn't going to be any workaround. Plastic & Engines can't be hand-crafted. Blue Science, Red Circuit, and Engine are slow . We'...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Construction Bots are in green science for a reason, and this shouldn't change. Least of all as a mere side-effect of trying to make oil easier. Blue science is large, as is the infrastructure to support it. Building it after bots vs. before is a big difference. Players who want to rush the bots and...

Re: ModMyFactory - mod manager and more

ModMyFactory is not compatible with Factorio versions 0.17.0 to 0.17.8 due to a bug affecting those versions. If you want to use ModMyFactory with Factorio 0.17 you have to use a version from 0.17.9 onward. Factorio 0.16.51 and older versions also work. I hope this isn't complaining, but as a poten...

Display When Unit Is Connected To Both Logistic & Circuit Networks

Inserters -- and other things, but I'll stick to inserters -- can be connected to both the logistic and circuit networks at the same time. "Disable" has priority. If either network disables it, it is disabled. This works, but the UI is confusing. It shows you the circuit network, unless yo...

Re: Friday Facts #278 - The new quickbar

I don't like it. Players have been trying to get developers to stop using the right side of the board for important keys for decades. You must realize why it's wrong; you made the 1-5 and Shift 1-5 before. But something changed, and now you're delivering the same 1-0 keys that everyone knows are bad...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

Bold added - Which, again, just proves my point that the primary criteria, and basically only valid one you're accepting here, is that the item replacing rails must be used generally like rails. This has nothing to do with tech level, cost, production complexity, theme fit. Those criteria don't act...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

As the smelting recipe change, I am proposing the following: - Iron plate, copper plate, stone brick: 3.2 - Steel: 16 That would mean exactly 48 stone furnaces per yellow belt, which is the number that people already build, but some of the last ones flicker with inactivity in 0.16, now all of them ...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

Let's imagine an alternative universe where they picked refined concrete. And we wanted rails. :o The iron ore would not be popular. We also might claim it's too complex. I've never built refined concrete in any factory. This is something I need a push to make. Rails aren't. Is it good or bad to mak...

And please remember, I don't mind the rails (actually like the idea of a stone based item requirement), but I am very much concerned by the number of rails required in the recipe. There is no other recipe with such high item count to be delivered to the assemblers. Please reconsider it... We need t...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

Am I wrong here? Are many people driving science production from intermediate products produced in your main factory? I do it with engines, and I think everyone does it with red circuits. I make them because blue science will need them, but I also intend to have extras. Some things (bullets, turret...
