Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

not only a + b must be < 2147483648 but actually the sum of every a + (b + constant) must be < 2147483648, otherwise the intermediate value used for comparing is interpreted as negative. So the maximum value for each a and b as well as the value to add is floor(2147483648 / 3) = 715827882. Or you c...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

1. #1 arithmetic: multiply b with 46340 Pro: works perfectly for all values from 0..4630, latency 2 ticks. Contra: values must be positive and not exceed 46340. Instead of multiply/divide you could add/subtract value of half of range (e.g. 2^31/2 = 1 073 741 824), then your working range is 0 ..1 0...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

i'm wondering if it's normal than the wiki machine is 'failing' at filtering signals whose value are triggering an overflow. I understand combinators as raw_math_code_machines so they behave properly. Overflow is inevitable behaviour of numerical machines. Try any clock from wiki, it "suffer&q...

Re: Minimalist signal filtering device

filtered signal when its value is around 2147483647 in instead show -1 , -2, and my version does the same have i done mistake somewhere ? It is overflow feature. It is there since von Neuman made first machines. :geek: 32 bits: maximum representable value 232 − 1 = 4,294,967,295 https://en.wikipedi...

It has slow and steady curve. It Shows applications and try to avoid over-explaining. You can use combinators even without advanced maths. However, simple logic thinking helps.

Re: Spidertron's infinite patrol

Here is an idea how to use Spiders falowing train for defense:

Make a wall based on mg turrets, add train stations as often as roboports. When biters attacks, then mg starts fire, it sets train station to enable, so cavalery comes. To the proper section which is under attack. :ugeek:

Re: Spidertron's infinite patrol

Instead of solid fuel use coal to go slower. You can also attach a wagon in front of each locomotive and get wagon fully loaded to get weight so to slow it even more. Yellow rockets are pretty safe, I could imagine this as an escort for outpost. Outpost connected only by trains, no pols, trhu ever e...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf, Modular 1-4 cores book : 40-480MW, Lossless, Two power grids, All the bells and whistles

No. Water input is 2x3 tubes, it means, 200 pipes long to 6 shorepumps is possible. mmm but then you put the water in 2 tanks, and use a pump to extract from the tanks, so no power, no water. this is why i think solar is good. You said you added solar, other option was remove pump, but in this case...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf, Modular 1-4 cores book : 40-480MW, Lossless, Two power grids, All the bells and whistles

That's a safe option, since you have incorporated the water input with a storage tank and a pump it's not really worth trying to go full pumpless. Tank-less vs Pumpless. :idea: This kind of design in a grid would required powered water input contrary to design prepared for lake & landfill metho...

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf, Modular 1-4 cores book : 40-480MW, Lossless, Two power grids, All the bells and whistles

after testing edge cases, like massive overload consumption, I found out, the all fluid pumps have to be powered by internal power grid. Otherwise it make plant stall. So I removed a combinator contraption (which deliver only partial solution) then add another solar panel and make proper wiring for ...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

All that realism with correct units and honoring the start and end temp and then they ignore that a ton of energy in making steam is evaporating it. :) Yes, indeed most of it. In the real world the main point of high-temperature steam is its higher pressure, not its greater heat content. They shoul...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

my very elaborate testing shows that exactly 100 000 ticks after i put the pipe i have 171 811 steam read by the combinator. This means a heat exchanger produce more than 103.08 /sec (lower bound) because it takes time for water to flow from pump to pipe and then to the heat exchanger and for the c...

Re: 0 combinator 0 tank precise yet weirdo nuclear plant

You mean everything is on 1 side of the reactor core ? or the reactor core only have 2 heatpipes connected to them ? 4 cores but only 2 output heatpipes. e.g. 2 cores has no pipe. it works but very few design use it as advantage The main reason i used so many heatpipes is to increase the size of th...

Re: 0 combinator 0 tank precise yet weirdo nuclear plant

That looks fun. Here is my review: I like several ideas used there. You made yourself an insane rule (no tank, no combinator) and made it. +1 The cores are conected only 2, usualy people connect all, its not needed.+1 Core's loading logic made of wires. +1 The fish based switch is hilarious, :lol: I...

I made a reactor using only thermal buffer, That is positive contribution to the thread. Your style of spaming is otherwise somewhat annoying.

Re: Perfect Nuclear Cloverleaf, Book of modular 1-4 cores : 40-480MW, Losseless, two power grids, all the bells and whis

1) Overheating There is no way to detect overheating 2) Freezing There is a simple way to detect when the reactor cools down too much. Actually more than one. But the simplest is to watch the amount of steam you have. But if you are using that to throw in some extra fuel when the reactor cools down...

That's also why I would never recommend using the 1 reactor version of this. Sure you build that first to get some power. But the material cost to go to the full 2x2 setup isn't that big and the difference is efficiency is major. 300% more efficient. Time to upgrade the plant asap, especially befor...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

Loading more than one cell at time for sake of "save_energy_of_swing" is false design branch. This idea creates GIANORMOUS needs of heat buffering to reach lossless requirement.

Build cost and UPS cost and power per tile (power density) says clear NO to this design idea.

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

how much temperature difference I use vs how much is left for that hot/cold temperature difference For example you can have your reactor going 600~1000°C and your coldest heat exchanger 500~900°C in my design the reactors were 750° when the furthest exchanger was 510° when under full load for long ...
