Hello, how can i get Spidetron remote? I can't find it in crafting and in technology tree it only shows that it unlocks Spidetron, not remote.
Do you use any mods or did you use mods temporarily?

You must have a mod installed, that hides it. The remote is in vanilla and craftable.

And in the crafting menu, the remote appears like this:

Hi Factorians!
So, as I understand, I cannot actually remove Landfill, as stated in
viewtopic.php?p=312151#p312151
viewtopic.php?f=91&t=4973&start=120#p139320

But them, what does this thing do? :)

What is does NOT do is it does not deconstruct Landfill, so?

It allows you to specifically remove landfill tile ghosts.

Another set of stupid questions - they're so stupid that it seems nobody even asked. :D
1) Can I make lights work 24/7 and not only at night without sticking combinator to each / gigantic circuit network / mods?
Also, circuitry white is darker than natural white.

I assume no, but just in case.

2) If I build something big and want to test in Sandbox in terms of how the lamps will cover the structure - can I do it without waiting for night (e.g. via console)?

3) Can I create Sandbox map without a daytime - always night?

Yes, you can do both under the time tab of the editor menu. It looks like a stopwatch.

1) You don't need a combinator if you just want it always on - just a circuit wire connecting the lamp to something, even just a pole or another lamp, so you can set a condition. Then you can set a circuit condition like 'wooden box = wooden box' so it's always on. If they're in a logistic network you can just set a logistic network condition instead.

2+3) You can use /editor to set the time of day and to freeze it (In the time tab there's a daytime slider with a button on the right to pause/unpause). Just one command once and then you're set.

Hey.
Is there a way to remove modules from assemblers or furnaces with bots? Or at least a fast way like collecting resource from a furnace by ctrl+click.
I'm kinda tired of opening menu of every assembler to take modules.
p.s. in vanila, of course.

Furnaces it is not that difficult, though probably not exactly what you had in mind to do :
Deconstruct the Furnaces, and then Construct a new row of Furnaces in their place.

For other machines, ones that you have to set the recipe, you could do the same thing if you happen to have a blueprint of the machinery without the modules (deconstruct the machines, plop the BP back down after they are gone).

Sadly, I know of no other vanilla means of removing modules by bot.

If you want to replace them (and not completely remove) then you can also use an upgrade planner to replace one type with another.

I extend astroshak's recommendation:

1. Create a blueprint of the entities you want the modules removed from.
2. Bulk remove the modules from the entities in the blueprint (there is a checkbox for that, when you open the blueprint)
3. Remove the entities with a deconstruction planner
4. place the entities with the blueprint.

How can I display launched rocket count? I remember it was displayed in the top left corner but now it's not there in FreePlay.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Rocket counter was removed from vanilla. You have to either install a mod or estimate from the production statistics screen (used sattelites / produced space science).

How would I set up a train's orders to wait for 30 seconds and then leave when iron plate or suluric acid is 0, I've got it working for the acid and plate but can't work out how to add the 30 second delay in. I've tried different orders of the condition and the and/or setting but i can't work it out.

EDIT I’ve worked it out, each item condition needs it’s own time condition under an and tab, both pairs are linked with an or tab.
