Code: Select all

while($player->isAwake()) {
    $player->play('Factorio');
    if(!$player->isAwake()) {
        $player->awakening();
    }
}

Nice, thanks! I was doing the same (after discovering that chunk alignment is actually quite important, mostly for ensuring radar coverage for automatic building)

One point of feedback: You can place normal (i.e. non-chain) signals directly after the last crossing in each intersection, since after that there cannot be a blockade anymore.

Yeah I know, but I prefered place them like this cause... More pretty, more symetrical :D , but you're right it's totaly work with this way too, just a question of preference ;)

Code: Select all

while($player->isAwake()) {
    $player->play('Factorio');
    if(!$player->isAwake()) {
        $player->awakening();
    }
}
