Re: Eliminating Nests

Now that we have the tank my approach is turret creep paired with tank - creep turrets to just out of range of the worms - but within the range of the tank's cannon. Park tank next to turrets. Use cannon to start engaging nests & worms - when biters and spitters come out to attack the tank they ...

Re: Stepping it up a notch?

Oh, and also note that you will need to go out and harvest some Alien Artifacts, later on, both to make Science Pack 4 (the purple ones) and to build certain items Yah I would think that ^this is your "What's Next", it was for me. Having to make periodic road trips to replenish your suppl...

Re: Maybe screwed?

Any tactic will probably rely on Turret Creeping in the end...//...At least I found the tank to be too weak... My new approach - seems to be working pretty well - is to use a combination of Turrets and tank. Some minor Turret Creeping until you're just out of range of the worms, then drive the tank...

O the places you'll go!

Don't know if this should be in Suggestions or Fan Fiction or what, but I'm just fantasizing about how far this could potentially be taken. I've read that TTD was a big influence here, and the transport side is certainly shaping up nicely. So imagine if, at some point, it evolves into "Okay you...

Re: How do you remove items form the map

For future reference if you ever want to clean up your space or storage area by eliminating the stuff you don't need any more (like Burner Miners or Stone Furnaces in the late game, or tons of wood you've accumulated by clearing forests), make a Wooden Box, put all the stuff you don't want any more ...

That's why in most cases, if you want an experienced player to have a stroke, just tell him you massively use transport belts for your copper cable conveying :lol: Can you expand on this? Are you talking about direct insertion like the post above? Because yes I was using transport belts and yes it ...

Re: Oil collection - train or pipe?

Also, I saw a mod available that provides Oil Cars for trains so you don't have to barrel. I'm probably gonna grab that.

Re: Oil collection - train or pipe?

I was facing this same dilemma just this weekend - spent about an hour getting a rail line started, realized how much work was ahead: Pumps->Factories for barreling; Full Barrels->storage chests; Barrels from storage->onto train; Train->unload barrels into chests; chests->Factories for unbarreling; ...

Can I vote again? After playing all weekend I simply cannot get used to this new "feature". Every time it happens it breaks my immersion. I'm a bit of a role-player and love to get really deep into my character and the situation. I do not like the constant reminders that I'm not really str...

Anyone know the mod? The sequel...

Looking for a mod I heard about on Reddit that lets you harvest alien artifacts from plants or trees or something? I've tried Googling and Searching the forums but can't figure out which mod it is. I don't hate harvesting from alien spawns but at this point in my game the spawns are really far away ...

Re: Game stops for autosave - thoughts?

I actually preferred the no-pop-up version - Yes, the periodic lags when autosaving were distracting but you got used to them and accepted them for what they were, especially because you can tweak the frequency in Options. But personally I find the new pop-up extremely distracting and immersion-brea...

Re: Just to say I'm not crazy about the new Autosaving... popup

Thanks I did run a search for "autosave" before posting but didn't see that thread.

I'm going to move my initial post into that thread as a Reply - mods please feel free to delete this thread, or I will delete it later tonight.
