Re: Option: disable auto-connect for a power pole

This nice feature would allow blueprint layouts which are now not possible.
- Compact layouts with switches.
- laser fence with guard tower
some more.


Say yes

Re: How do you handle power shortages?

Anyone triggered by the wrong boiler:steam engine ratio? Ratio is ok for backup. He just need add storage tanks. So hot steam is ready when night comes. To be honest this is supplement for the power my nuclear can't handle. I've had a couple of times where I've dipped into my 1 TJ of accumulator st...

Re: Remote, low tech gun turret (With indicator light)

Replace the second solar with Programable speaker. Set alarm to low ammo, it calls you when need refil. No need to re-check the light.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

IMHO, they search a solution, where you don't need tanks to compensate in the first place. If all oil products could be used properly, i think the issue wouldn't be there. Sure, solid fuel can be used to compensate, but its not that obvious and blue science only uses a fraction of it. We also can d...

Re: Version 0.17.59

I don't know whether the planned Oil changes are good or bad, but I know as a novice I found the whole liquid processing very painful to deal with - one or other of the liquids would fill up, stopping production of whatever I was actually using. Then I'd end up just putting in more tanks to needles...

Re: More than 12 shortcuts

Add settings to GUI setting

show "x" rows of shortcut bar (<<< already there)
show "x" icons per row (<<< new one)

Make these two setting for Invetory shortuct AND for the side shortcut panel. Independent. Variety of monitors and mods is real.

Re: Add discharge defense remote and artillery targeting remote to shortcut bar

In current status, I can have a standard combat shortut bar with arty, defence towers, ammo and battle bots. (yes, I use arty as close bombardment when I assault by foot) So it is on my screen only when I need it.
When arty becomes part of a side shorctut bar, it occupy space even I dont need it.

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

I think that inherently by having a puzzle after knowing the basic mechanics of the process, it already does distribute the challenge better. Indeed the multiple output process is the new problematic part. Ah, herein lies the rub then. When I think oil, I think first and foremost of the multiple ou...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Lastly I am a bit afraid that heavy oil could be short on heave blue belt production. You may want to consider to increase the output at advanced oil processing from 10 heavy to 20. Leftovers can still be cracked easily, but a shortage cannot be taken care or anymore. You sounds like an experienced...
