Re: Humble beginning..

7500 for main metals (iron, copper) and their ore equivalents for unloading purposes only. I might go for 10k+ at the main factory but i think that would be overkill. I haven't seen any decent roboport factories that can continuously consume such numbers. Due to robot recharge rate you would need lu...

Re: Humble beginning..

Well "main bus idea" is something i've been using for a year and a half playing this game. Secondly at throughput like these (i expect 3 express lines to be at maximum density which is ~7500 items/minute) it is impossible to use anything else as roboports start to lag the game down at such...

Re: On biter difficulty

I've actually killed a ton of biters with one tank and poison capsules for worms.


In fact it is the end game combat, that feels grindy for me. almost no feeling slow end tedious eradication.

Re: Are double-signals ever useful? Do they ever make sense?

What i am using is more like your second example. Essentially my main rail network is fully segmented one-way system, but if need arises i simply branch both lines, merge them and use it as two way branch. Is is possible to have multiple trains per two-way line, if you put down signals carefully, bu...

Re: Are double-signals ever useful? Do they ever make sense?

Currently i am building a large rail network. main body of the network is one-way, however for construction purposes, as well as easy transportation I tend to build two-way dead ends with stations, for my 2-engine taxi.

Re: Friday Facts #66 - Merry christmas

With addition of all these new controls please consider the current cable system. Current designs are buried underneath the web of red and green wires, please make a bit more organized as well. Maybe use poles for long distance wiring and some ground wiring for local stuff. (terraria-like? who know...

Re: So i've decided to expand...

Vanilla world, normal spawns. The cleared area was rather....extensive as i am going to construct humongous factory there which will accept mostly freight trains (5 engines + 25 wagons)

Re: Automatic mining bases expansion (or eliminating the nee

I think this might've been better in suggestions 1 is definitive no factorio will become waiting game. 2 I dont see how it will benefit the game? It would still need power supply and if you are using solars you might as well just travel to the location drop some solars + roboport and deploy the blue...

Re: Large and Heavy items

My opinion: As long, as this adds only complexity instead of some kind of new gameplay, I think it is not a clever idea. But as I see it currently, it adds only complexity and problems. Things which are currently easy and straight through must be thought around the edge to solve them. For example t...

Re: Large and Heavy items

Sorry, but I have problems to understand, what that will bring for the gameplay. :) - Additional scale for challenge. Currently challenge is defined in game only by # or resources and # of biters which usually ends up making game grindier, not challenging. This design could be used for optional str...

Re: Large and Heavy items

I would like to point out however, that this is not about realism. While ability to carry hundreds of buildings and tanks seems dubious to me I understand that some sacrifices needs to be made or the game wont be enjoyable to play. The main reason I want this implemented is different complexity curv...

Re: Large and Heavy items

Not exactly ssilk.

These suggestions are about assembly line construction.

My suggestion is not about that at all, it can be implemented as assembly system but the main point of this concept is complete player/robot/belt inability to craft and move such items thus introducing a logistical challenge.

Re: Large and Heavy items

Ill keep the colour in mind in the future. I came up with this idea while playing in challenge mode (Player has no defense and minimum of weaponry, can only use cars, tanks, and turrets) The lack of exosuits actually forced me to drastically change the way I construct my bases. They are more friendl...

Large and Heavy items

Idea Concept is simple: Items that are so large, or heavy, that they cannot be transported by any current means (Player inventory; robots; inserters; belts) These items need to be constructed at their final destination, or require significant infrastructure to move them around. Anything made from t...

Re: Removing walls above resources

Multiple tool suggestion sounds quite plausible:

- keep 2 existing tools as is (maybe change the names)
- add "advanced" tools that only do one task but do it better than current steel axe (by a bit)
