Re: 6 Red belt balancer

Looks pretty good, however, there are two sides of a splitter on the input side of the belt that empty into nothing, maybe this could be improved to fix the throughput and not waste those few products.

Re: Dynamic train schedule

I agree. I also think that sometimes, the train schedule UI elements are a bit confusing (especially the Wait conditions) and I like the "Go if" change. It would make it much easier to understand the train schedule and making it.

Re: More mod list colors

I like the idea.
Currently the mod only becomes yellow when you check for an update, otherwise the program would constantly have to check for updates. That is why you have to click to see which ones show up yellow.

Re: Making graphical assets and story sort of legit...

Right now most story mods come up with their own backstory. While I know you're looking for the actual lore, I don't believe there is any. The character in factorio can be whoever you want him to be. If you like, come up with an interesting explanation or backstory that will make your mod be what yo...

Re: Large Modpack

something to keep in mind for my mod is, when it first started, graphics weren't exactly the most important thing for me. A lot of icons are just recolours of base game icons, or cropped and resized google images. (most still are), some of the icons are even from older versions of the game. As for ...

Re: Power-Measuring Combinators

You can measure the level of an accumulator Bargraphs are simple if that's what you mean. The combinator is only really needed to set the color. Just hook up all lights with a wire and set each light to go on at a certain threshold. For example 10, 20, 30, etc. Right, but is there a way to measure ...

Hello all, I am looking for a nice setup or blueprint that allows me to measure the amount of power I have using combinators and lights, if this is possible, it would be much appreciated, thanks! I can't seem to figure out anything and I think it would be a nice addition to my factories. Edit: I pro...

Re: whats your preference for starting a new map?

Personally I only like using the map editor for very large or very small test or megabase saves. I like using other mods and the configurable settings better for general play.

Re: Glass Pipes

Parameters should definitely go based on the material if you're looking for realistic effects. As for the recipes, that should also be based heavily on the material, and balanced to seem realistic to the amount of flow allowed. But that's just my opinion, of course make the parameters whatever you w...

Ah. That's a bit disappointing, maybe I will add it as a suggestion in the ideas section. Thanks for letting me know, I would have kept searching the tech files for ages.

Re: Offshore pump volume?

Sometimes, if you have a pump sending water to a TON of different things, like many boilers and crafting machines, all receiving water by the same pump, you will have less in the pipes and therefore in the pump as well.

Re: Combinator comments!

That's a good idea, especially since making combinators and stuff is the closest you can get to "coding" without actually coding in the game. I think that would be nice, especially when the factory gets huge and you have a lot of combinators and circuit setups.

Re: Where is the escape capsule?

It is not supposed to be in the vanilla, but it may come in DLC later. It is, however, a part of the campaign, and you also are not supposed to start with anything but the mining drill and furnace in the freeplay. I'm sure there is or you could make some mod that has this feature.
