Re: Silver Foam - What am I missing?

As far as I can tell the quantum computer route isn't actually any good, precisely because of issues like this.

That said, your saline should really be sourced from tar quenching, not salt.

Re: Finally got the big mines! Ooooh wait...

so it sounds like power making of helium is out. How do you guys get helium? My impression from the changes that happened a while back and my conversation with immortal_sniper about them, is that the intention is for players to use regolite. It seems like if at any point there is a good alternative...

Re: Finally got the big mines! Ooooh wait...

Heh. I decide to just go straight for next science instead. I ONLY need diamond processing for that. Diamond mining processing looks straightforward. OK, I build the machine and start organizing them. Wait, the ONLY way to get diamonds is through.... DIAMOND MINE which requires vanadates..... ahhhh...

I meant that making ethylene glycol costs too much in general for it to be worth using in any optional fashion.

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Ethylene glycol is messed up all around, and has been the whole time. But that's really another subject. I never really had a shortage of silver as a byproduct of lead production, just smelting the dust. But I also never got to utility science where you need silver zinc alloy and such. What throughp...

Re: Error on loading

Py with other overhauls is actually easier, because the alternative paths to certain resources like sulfuric acid are generally easier in any other mod than they are in Py. Other overhauls also tend to give you powerful tools like Bob modules and so forth which Py, at least currently, doesn't really...

If you don't have Touched by an Angel, other stuff is going to be weird even if it runs. I highly recommend using it if you add just about any significant content mod to Py.

Re: Error on loading

Py is not formally compatible with most overhaul mods. You can try to add PyCoal Touched by an Angel to get compatibility with some things, but I highly doubt Space Exploration will work at all.

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Basically you want to use molten, and until it is economical to use molten, all the other upgrades are either awkward or outright bad. The Hot Air recipe for Lead is also way too good. It triples the yield (+200%) instead of giving +50% like with iron/copper. They are all +2. This has a big effect ...

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

I have strange rates for lead. Currently I am at red science stage with lead processing 1 researched. I can use the recipe with hot air to make 3 plates from 6 ore. Another way is ore to grade1 lead to plates with rates 5:1 and 4:8. So 100 ore -> 20 grade1 lead -> 40 plates. But it's more lossy the...

So... I have a Niobium Mine built which is sitting on an ore patch, and I'm not sure what I need to do. FNEI indicates I need 3 drill bits, 100 Lubricant, 100 Coal gas to get 20 ore. But looking at the building, it only has one fluid input. And seems to be indicating I'm also going get a Refined Sy...
