Re: New special signal "self" for pumps

If I'm understanding correctly, it sounds like you would like a filter option. This may be more suited to what you want. The only question would be if this would be compatible with the current fluid system, specifically not being able to mix fluids. No, this is about the circuit network. The pump a...

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

The new bar is much more user friendly, from my perspective. Items are always in the same place that you chose to put them. I hated when newly made or picked up items would make their way to the bar. The only items I want on there are the items that I often place manually and frequently (e.g. belts,...

https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=65895&p=403573&hilit=toolbar#p403573 This is pretty much my vote here. The fact there are quite a few posts on the subject does suggest it is a problem. That, and save/load functionality would be fine. So, two people in that other post sai...

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

The new one feels like a CAD program UI rather than a game. I really like it. Having up to 10 bar presets you can choose from. Building ghosts when you don't have an item too. Only issue is you have to set it up and it takes some time. What if it wasn't per save but rather per game installation? I ...

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

My biggest problem with the new quickbar is that I sometimes try to use the pipette tool to select items from it. (But I had the same issue with the old toolbar as well, so this is not new, and not specific to the implementation. But maybe the devs could add pipette support for picking items from t...

While not for the temporary stops I would like such a key too.
I'm pretty sure FARL has a hotkey for enable/disable built into it. I used FARL for a while, but I have stopped. Only reason I keep it installed is for this hotkey.

I believe the rules are actually much more simple than some of these arguments. 1) If lanes are straight and... a) run across the front of inserter, place in the farthest lane. b) run toward/away from inserter, place in the right lane of travel. 2) If curved, place in the lane that is more often far...

Re: Buffer chests and provider chests should have the same priority of ordering items

For the last 10 minutes I've been trying to come up with an argument for or against this. The only argument against I can think of is that your buffer chests should be laid out in such a way that generally precludes pulling from passive providers first, but that is not much of an argument, so I have...

Re: Module Production: To beacon or not to beacon?

The only thing I consistently beacon is copper cable production for electronic circuits. And even then, that is just a +50% total to speed, so it becomes a 1:1 factory ratio. It is understandable that the resource demands, both materials and energy, are relatively minor for a large base, so modules ...

Re: Power Switch BP??

Well that is disappointing. I guess the BP pic led me to believe the connections were retained. Connections are retained, as you can see by the fact that all the switches are connected to their respective power poles. It is the disconnections that are not retained. This is constantly happening to m...
