[MOD 1.1] Sea Block Pack 0.5.1

Post by KiwiHawk »

Type: Mod Pack
Name: Sea Block
Description: Lots of water.
License: Modpack, refer to individual mods for each license
Version: 0.5.1
Release: 2020-12-23
Tested-With-Factorio-Version: 1.1.21
Download-Url: SeaBlockPack_0.5.1.zip
Changelog: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/SeaBlock/changelog

This modpack alters terrain generation so that everywhere except the starting block is water. You are given just enough starting items to create a small factory that extracts resources from the sea, and must grow from your single tile to a sprawling factory capable of building the SpaceMod FTL starship.

Hints
  • The default factorio key to increase landfill size is numpad+
  • Press ctrl + E to open the Factorio NEI interface. Left clicking an item in FNEI shows the recipes that produce the item, right clicking shows recipes that consume the item.

Hi!

As some of you I'm sure have noticed, I'm not Trainwreck. He's been nice enough to trust me to update his modpack. This is my first release. Please let me know if you come across any issues!

I tryed it and the "default landfill type" is set to landfill instead of sand in mod settings, i dont know if its intended but it seems like an unintentional change as i dont see it in changelog (and vanilla landfill is ugly :) )
I like the hydroplant recipe change and the tech tree is way better this way for the early game imo :)

Glad there is someone he trusts, and thank you for stepping up!

Is adding Angels' industries (WITHOUT component mode) still on the radar map for the complex nuclear fuel recipes? It works well (I run that way myself), so it sholud be just a change in the modlist.

Thanks for reporting this. No, it wasn't intended! You can just change the setting yourself though so I'm not considering it urgent πŸ™‚

I've had a few requests so I will be investigating. The bots would be a big change to the balance of the pack!

Hmm, this is true, but they are sooooooooo sloooooooow that I always feel they are balanced enough.

Even if they're slow, having logistics bots means you can make a mall or other low-demand production facility extremely easily.

Enforced removal of Bob's Chemical Plants and Electrolysers
Does this also remove the technologies? Having a chain of technologies that do nothing makes the completionist and the perfectionist in me get into a big fight.

Construction Bots with Crawler vehicles (truck, train) would be great. Logistic Cargo Bots are too much, i think, esp. Mk2 ones. The thing, that they are moving one stack is really powerful.

Early construction bots would be great. I think a mod like TinyStart would be a great addition to the pack.

I really like the change to Green Algae 2 research. Now you only need 100 red packs :!:

I think the angels bots at red & green science are nice, too. Used them for my marathon run back in 0.17 (not finished :()

Currently, I play with brave new world, which gives you only 100 con bots at the beginning. Very nice, but you have to cheat the first research in order to proceed. BNW gets updated for 1.1 soonish. I just increased version.

Updated version released. Science Cost Tweaker's latest (breaking) change hasn't yet been included yet.

i have not found any loops due change in t1 and t3, when loading my sea block test save, also new ingredient recipe unlocked properly, but t3 is now slighly more complex, so you need to build more stuff, to be able to produce blue science pack. so it does disrupt current production line. i have no idea, how bad is new intermediate for seablock balance wise, tho'

t1 lab now consumer more iron less copper, but it's not that significant, and you don't build labs en mass, so that's not issue.

as for T3 in my ab play, it shifted more focus toward chemistry, due requirement of sulfur, so i needed to rebuild my factory somewhat. i expect similar effect in seablock, so if you don't want to bother with it during christmas, just wait with mod update until you have time for rebuild.
