Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

Has anyone thought that maybe iterating through 10k+ solar panels to check against pollution might be a wee little UPS hit?

Re: Please allow me to toggle a locomotive into "personal train" mode

Temp stations aren't meant to be permanent.
Slap a station down and call it #TEMP or something if you have a place you need to keep returning to, remove it once you're done and just build a proper station for other landmarks pre 0.17 style.
You only need to set the conditions once.

I don't think that holds up with -80% energy consumption from efficiency modules.

Re: Private trains?

Well yeah, that's how you navigate a properly sized base without going insane.
The only alternative I have seen so far is the helicopter mod but you'll still want a train with build materials.

Re: Was 0.17.7 biters nerfed already?

You know that there are other turrets than Laser, right ? (This actually feels like a nice balance change for making laser turret creep less easy compared to gun/flame... at least for a short while - until blue science and substations ?) Maybe in another world in which gun turrets get filled with a...

Re: Was 0.17.7 biters nerfed already?

They are much harder to deal with because of the way ranged attacks work now and because the tank was nerfed into oblivion. Turret creep flat out doesn't work anymore due to lingering acid destroying power poles and if you build laser turrets right next to power poles, eventually the power pole will...

Why?
You can disable your personal roboport now.
That is the only thing that keeps flooding your inventory.

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network

Each of my mining outposts has at least 4 compressed blue belts of ore. The rest of my base is decentralized modules joined by LTN. Together they make 2.1k SPM. When I add another furnace module I need a few hundred productivity and speed modules. Which I certainly don't have on stock. Sounds like ...

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network

If you want to build really big things you need hundreds or thousands of items. And 30 or more different types of items. To make this build effectively fast (within minutes, not hours) you need so much items, that you cannot hold them all in a local store, which is refilled, when empty. Instead you...

Welcome to Factorio, where we always need more production, more pollution and more complexity. :lol: Honestly, why would we NOT want to fully automate base expansion? Factorio is all about automating everything. Okay so this is just complexity for the sake of complexity then? Keeping a few turrets ...

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network

Say you build a new mining outpost. You build the train line, add the train stop, add the roboport and release some construction bots. Now you blueprint the electric miners, power poles, belts, walls, gates, flame turrets, laser turrets as suitable for the ore deposit in question. Every deposit wil...

The point is to ship a radar when the roboport has a ghosted radar in range. Not to always have one radar in store.
What's the point of that?

Re: Good solution for biters attacking power poles along railway?

I'll never understand why people feel the need to run trains through unguarded territory. In the new 1.7 game I made, I set the resource frequency to lowest and it's more brutally far apart than it has ever been yet I still had more than enough to box everything I need in with gun turrets and a huge...

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network

That functionality already exists, you can connect inserters to the network and have them deactivate if an item is above X, if you build something that number is subtracted so they shovel more of it into the network and there you go, what more do you want? If you want a train to go to an outpost if ...

Persistant notifications to the player when queued researches are completed

In the FF#254 you said how the queue has the problem of overlooking the thing you just researched and indeed, it just makes the "research complete" sound and jumps right to the next one with no more indicator of what it is that has just finished so if you weren't constantly aware of what i...

If it has enough energy to kill something quickly, at the very least there will be a bang if you turn it on because of the sudden expansion of hot air.
