Re: Circuit network connections for splitters

I suspect a programmable filter is useless. Compared to the filter inserter, a splitter guarantees its item will back up, instead of passing through. Letting an item back up on a mixed belt is almost never what you want, as it easily deadlocks. If an item is so toxic to the system ahead of it that i...

Re: Sync Mods + Load Game as a single operation

I changed my mind. This feature would not solve the problem. I am going to create separate mod folders for every one of my worlds, and separate .bat files to launch directly to the world, using its own mods. This will be faster than any in-game feature for reloading mods. Only a customized launcher ...

Re: Burner inserters should always be able to fuel themselves.

I like them how they are. The belt speed wouldn't make my "top 3 annoyances" with them: Always pre-fuel burner inserters that are moving non-fuel items, before connecting the belts behind them, or they will immediately break themselves moving an item instead of grabbing fuel. Never let the fuel line...

Re: Condensers

It would allow you to to create fully independent bases that don't even care about being connected to your main power supply that are supplied by steam and don't care about location. Blueprints that rely on steam power and don't need to be manually hooked up to a water source, but instead utilize y...

Sync Mods + Load Game as a single operation

TL;DR "Load this game, with these mods," as a single operation. What ? Factorio knows how to start directly into a game. It just isn't being asked to. The --load-game command line option exists, and works. "Sync Mods" already replaces Factorio with a new process. It could simply pass arguments. edi...

Re: [kovarex] [0.16.43] Inserter inconsistency when grabbing from belts

My blueprint still produces it for me in 0.16.46:

Unfortunately I don't know how to do the tick timing with combinators, only to check if a belt has full throughput with splitters.

Re: [0.16.43] Inserter inconsistency when grabbing from belts

I confirmed this in a different way, using priority splitters to tell when the belt ahead was blocked. Only the mirrored south orientation ever overflowed onto the other side of the splitter.

edit: idk if this is even useful, but here's my test blueprint, and a picture of which belt overflows.

Wrong code applies richness modifier

Sorry if I'm reporting this in the wrong place. Also I only know Lua, almost nothing about Factorio modding. http://i.imgur.com/oBFbsFX.png This probably meant to do "res_conf.type" instead of "type". The latter is a function reference, and will always compare unequal to those strings. But my resour...

Re: [0.16.17] Crash After Placing Splitter

It's probably an artillery round that does it. Two things that happen immediately before the crash are a train leaving, and the artillery round. But I tried stopping the train, and it still happens.

Wasn't this either; I removed the turret and it still crashed. I think I'm done trying to guess.

Re: Usefull commands for Map-tests

(I realize the thread is 1+ years old, but it still shows up on Google. I'm still using this thread in Dec 2017.) I like to add a line to make the map always bright: /c game.forces.player.chart(game.player.surface, {lefttop = {x = -2048, y = -2048}, rightbottom = {x = 2048, y = 2048}}) /c game.spee...
