Re: [1.1.25] Assembling machine "item ingredient shortage" & Inserter "waiting for space in destination""

How do you prevent damaged items from returning to the logistics network? Is there a way to tell your trash slots to only accept full-health items?

Re: Friday Facts #322 - New Particle system

So your assumptions lead you to believe that the factorio devs missed a factor-of-eight size optimization? And you have thought about this and determined that your assumptions are probably correct? If I were trying to design a bit-packed particle system, I'd also include: * Emitter ID (minimum 20 bi...

This seems exceedingly unlikely. What was the distance from your player to the two locations, and how did you measure that distance?

Re: Train load/unload balancing

I would use a 1-to-6 balancer for each wagon rather than using circuits. But if you want circuits, wire each bank of 6 chests together and send that to the input of an "iron ore / -6, output iron ore" combinator. Use the same wire color to connect the combinator output to all the inserters...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

I'd guess you need to process less saphirite/jivolite and instead process more stiratite/crontinnium. If you're going all the way to purified crystals, you might even stop at crystals for now, since purified gives you 1.5 iron ore per copper ore, while everything else gives you 2 iron ore per copper...

Re: Combinators problem

I'd also add: - Combinators operate in discrete time, and implicitly sum all connected outputs. Happy side effect: You can build a clock. (Constant combinator that outputs A=1, connected to both the input and output of an "A < 5, output A's input value" combinator. A starts at 1, increment...

Re: Train pathing penalty is incorrect if there are 2 or more trains in a segment.

9 is almost certainly because, even with the various pathing penalties, the false station is closer than the true station. What problem are you trying to solve with these false stations?

Download the version you want and put it in your mods folder. Delete the newer version, or hop through some hoops in the mods window to explicitly select the older version.

Re: pump fails to pump from fluid wagon

Are there any curves in the rail between the train stop and the fluid wagon? Pumps only work if the portion of the train from the stop to the wagon is straight.

Re: delivery problem.

For one, that station, unlike one in your save game , has no fluid waiting to be delivered. But if I hook up a creative fluid source, the only other problem I can find is that the minimum provider level is set to 300k (technically 12 tanks, but realistically at least 13), and the maximum capacity of...

Re: Anybody tell me ?

None of those words require combinators; the vast majority of my circuit networks have no combinators at all, and optimization is typically more concerned with removing combinators than adding them. Set something up that you think will work. If it doesn't, find a combinator that has an unexpected ou...

Re: delivery problem.

You'll get better support if you post (not pm) a save.

But I think HSquishy has the right idea. The stations shown in 3.png don't appear to have a request.

If the wiki is not detailed enough, please ask a question that includes what you are doing, what you expect, and what you observe. For example: "I configured an arithmetic combinator as 'input each / 2, output iron ore'. The inputs are 50 iron ore and 5 on signal Q. ** I expected to get an outp...

Re: [0.17.78] Robots

Unless you post a save, this is going to be filed under either not a bug or won't fix. In order to ensure that robots do not become UPS hogs, they assume that all logistic areas are concave. You can probably get away with stair-stepped diagonals on the edges, but anything that can reasonably be desc...

Re: Glitch since last update (17.77)

I'd guess that one of your mods decreased the stack size of something, or a mod like BigBags got disabled. If you're certain that's not it, I recommend posting your save.

I'm certainly not the authority on this, but I have two opinions: Measure by output: If it produces 1k spm or 1 rpm, your choice, it's a megabase. By this rule, you need 1k spm. Simple, and easy to justify, but if you use this rule with Pyanadon's — well, all I can say is "good luck". Meas...
