Re: [MOD 0.16] Helicopters

This was suggested before, and I thought about it, but I'm not sure how it would work out in combination with the existing vehicle physics. Probably means creating a new movement system from scratch. And I imagine it would complicate simple tasks like coming to a halt a lot. Oh that "coming to...

Re: Item on ground timeout?

Alternatively, have big rocks no longer explode into items.
With alien artifacts gone, they're the only cause of this problem here.

You can assign an icon to alarms from speakers and even click it to jump to the source of the alarm.

As for "no more production" icons on single miners, bottleneck is your friend.
If you're arguing for bottleneck to be vanillafied, sure.

Re: Train Logic, Everything Cargo Reader

That's what the train full/empty conditions are for.
If you want more control, you can hook the trainstation up to a decider combinator which comes with an everything condition.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Helicopters

Would it be possible to have an option without tank controls? Helicopters can fly sideways no problem. Also this thing should probably have more braking force because stopping with the same acceleration force as accelerating is another thing helicopters do since all motion comes from leaning the rot...

Re: Construction bot pathing

The weird inconsistency is, what does the roboport "range" actually mean? In my mind, robots should never try to path outside of the roboport allowed area. That gives you the ability to actually affect how the network behaves. They are drones with the simple AI of always taking the shorte...

Re: Logistic Storage strategy

But that is just stupid waste and creates pollution for no reason. The simplest way is to just not upgrade some stone/steel furnaces to electrical furnaces and let them burn stuff. It's more work to update them than to repurpose them as incinerator. That ALSO creates pollution for no reason! :roll:...

How does your example tile and get power?
How is it any better than just 4 miners, 2 undergrounds, 1 power pole?

Re: Help - Should I be using flamethrower?

Of course it isn’t “worth the effort”. But that is what makes it fun. ;). [...] If you are seriously doing that then you have a weird definition of fun. Might as well play the game with your hands tied to the back just for the sake of it. Way ahead of you. I've been typing this with my face all alo...

Re: [MOD 0.16.x] Deadlock's Stacking Beltbox (& Compact Loaders)

Are you rotating the loaders to go out of the chests?
If you place a loader next to anything with an inventory, it will automatically rotate itself to go into it.

Re: Depleted mines: Status icon

Good news, you can connect to the circuit network and it outputs the amount of resources left in the whole patch. So you can just wire that to a speaker and have and alert when the patch is depleted. One thing that can happen is that patches become 'disconnected' when being mined. Basically if, som...

@dood: so you just build all that by using stuff from your inventory? I usually just drop the rails, power supply, and laser turrets and let the construction bots from the base build the rest, that way i can move ahead quicker and don't have to come back for supplies as often.
