Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-351-03-hole-design.png Guys... That design looks like a butthole. I'm not using that as an impolite euphemism for "this looks bad". I'm being very literal. https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-351-04-tower-design.png And this one looks ...

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

I have managed to look at these now and I can say that for a little bit, I was completely mystified. The absolute maximum number of heat exchangers I could feed from a water pump was 11.5 but here I'm seeing designs where everyone is stringing together 20 exchangers on a single water pipe. At first,...

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

Re bussing gears vs producing them locally - I will say that gears are so easy to make on demand that with a purely bus based factory, busing gears is genuinely debatable. That being said, once you have started to integrate rail based systems the picture starts to change imho. If/when you expand suc...

Re: Cut trees directly in front of locomotive while in it?

Won't throw nades because I like the trees, they eat my aerosols. If you're talking about some mod recipie, use the long reach mod. If you're talking about pollution absorption, there is no fundamental difference between a tree that you have cut down and a tree that you have blown up with a grenade...

Re: Version 0.18.26

Changes Disallowed saving over autosave files or making saves that begin with '_autosave'. Oh come on. I sometimes use autosaves to save something temporarily without any intent to keep it for longer. What about an option in the pause menu that performs an autosave immediately? Joking aside, it's a...

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

@Hannu My biter settings are ramped up some, yes, but that's not really the issue there. I do have not even calculated how much time it takes to fill them but when I use all ammo and build new defense line and new production plant, it takes several hours and ammo boxes are filled for new expansion. ...

Well, he said he'd have a video about it but making and editing video takes some time. Hopefully just taking longer than he expected because he's busy with stuff.

Is there something on the map that at least can narrow down an area to search in? On the map, oil appears as purple dots. When you mouse over them, it will say "Crude oil combined yield XXXXXX%" Screenshots - factorio map oil a.png factorio map oil b.png As for making sure you get pumpjac...

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?) If there will be a MW tiebreak, I'll use the fluid count Edit - See the revised version a couple of posts below. This version is just left here for ar...
