Add Backpressure Concept to Factorio Guide?

Postby dragontamer5788 » Thu Sep 15, 2016 6:11 pm

What would people think about adding "backpressure" to the guide?

http://factorioguide.nfshost.com/backpressure.html

I do think that getting this concept of "backpressure" is the biggest step for a beginner. Beyond that, I'm not sure what I can add / translate from my guide to the factorio guide. My guide is a "Combinators with Backpressure", not a general guide (not even a general combinatory guide). The "Automation" section can potentially talk about backpressure in depth. Its currently a relatively small section of the guide, so adding a few hundred more words wouldn't be a big deal?

I split this topic from the Opening Contributions Topic.

My opinion is clear: What can be joined should be joined. :)

I will say that the WebM and MP4 videos can definitely be added to the guide: you're free to use them.

Webm / VP9 for Firefox / Chrome: http://factorioguide.nfshost.com/videos ... ssure.webm

MP4 for Internet Explorer and Safari: http://factorioguide.nfshost.com/videos ... essure.mp4

At 1.3MB, I designed these files to be small, compact, high quality videos for easy hosting. <video> tag would allow compatibility with all major, modern browsers. With Microsoft adding Webm/VP9 support to Edge
