Heavy construction bot losses

Post by teroreta »

Hi,
I've returned to play factorio after a lengthy break only to find that things are different now.
My flamethrower turrets are killing my repair-bots by the dozens.
None of the mods I tried downloading work either.
Any help?

There is also a Fire-Proof Bots mod.

I question though, what are your bots trying to repair/replace while the flamers are active? Land mines?

And most recent my https://mods.factorio.com/mod/ScaredyBot mod that has bots return when taking damage.

But you should try only putting repair packs into the roboports when the flame turrets are done firing and removing it when repairs are done and such. While you can't 100% solve the problem it's a nice puzzle to (nearly) solve.

What about just moving your roboports a little further away so that the bots generally don't arrive until the flamers are done shooting?
