Re: 0.17 / 0.18 - What to put on the main bus?

The long and short of it is that you should consider busing if the resource - 1 - Is used in multiple places 2 - Is more compact or at least equally compact in it's assembled form than it is in it's more raw form. 3 - Is complicated enough to produce that it's just much easier to have a dedicated pr...

Well, I saw that BP. It won't work because it has a flaw. I know it because I had made the same mistake :mrgreen:
Since it was pulled, I'm curious what the flaw was. Not having space for poles or something like that?

I haven't verified this myself but apparently the best way to find your oil goes like this - You want to take your shotgun and shoot at some food and up through the ground comes a bubblin crude. Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

I discovered today that there is also a mod solution as well. Combining Inland Pumps with Waterfill lets you just plonk down blueprints with offshore pumps without having to fiddle with it.

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

I was finding that my power plant was pulsing between two numbers, I think because of the nature of the pumps, so I have revised my power meter with an additional averaging feature to make it a bit more convenient to read. Edit: Rev 1 had a small error. How embarrasing :oops:. Fixed now and updated ...

can you tell me how I can display more numbers behind the comma (is it a debug option? or did you calculate this from the more precise fluid count?)

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

A question that probably won't matter - Does *Net* output or *Gross* output win? I can also report that I have broken the 730MW barrier so SurprisedPikachu². For some reason my fluid flow calculations did not match effective power. I don't know why. I was too lazy for it :) Are we talking a differen...

ColonelSanders (I'm at a sustained 717.2374 MW), can you tell me how I can display more numbers behind the comma (is it a debug option? or did you calculate this from the more precise fluid count?)
I calculated from fluid count.

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

Personally, I would be very surprised if it's possible to exceed 730 MW in 0.18.19. OK, lets be more specific. I can confirm that it is possible to exceed 730 MW on 7 tiles high single cluster reactor on 0.17 stable if brownout resistance is not required. Well, In that case - surprised pikachu.png ...

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

That's all fine and good but I wasn't talking about an unlimited height tileable reactor. I was talking about this threads subject which is a single cluster reactor limited to 7 tiles in one axis. So again - Personally, I would be very surprised if it's possible to exceed 730 MW in 0.18.19. The limi...

Personally, I would be very surprised if it's possible to exceed 730 MW in 0.18.19. I have not tested nuclear 0.17 vs 0.18 yet, but I can say it is possibe to exceed 730 MW in 0.17. With these restrictions? I have built a reactor that ran about 1.6 GW but it most definitely was not anywhere near 7 ...

Re: How to disable keybind sync?

I'm guessing you're using the steam version of the game and it's the steam cloud feature that's doing this. I think you would have to disable the steam cloud feature for Factorio but then you would have to manually transfer your saves too. Maybe someone will chime in with a better answer though.

Re: Quarantaine Challenge! The Highest Output 7 tile high Nuclear Reactor design wins FAME, HONOR and $10!

So tinkering with this in 0.18.19, I'm at a sustained 717.2374 MW. I think I do need the above question answered before I tinker more but looking at the UI in your video leads me to believe you're running 0.17.79. I don't have the train in just yet but I think that's pretty trivial. Personally, I wo...
