Oh right in v0.15 you can do that map trick. But with generated blueprints I don't have to select anything anymore ^_^JohnyDL wrote:Or you can do it with map mode zoom into one corner start the selection zoom out and zoom into the other corner blueprint selected in seconds (it's how I BP my XL balancers (and even a whole base from MP on more than occasion)Qon wrote:Download the save file and remaking the blueprints in game with the 0.15 client.
I suggest you at least use a mod that lets you run faster (creative mode can do this) when selecting the bigger balancers. You don't want to lose minutes of holding down m1 and running around if you accidentally drop m1 or have to leave temporarily.
Also 24GB on my computer I'll give the bigger balancers a go ^_^
There's a reason I didn't make any balancers bigger than 512 when I made them manually. It's takes a lot of time to align the blueprints and make new sub-parts and reconnect them.Red_Katana_001 wrote:well, after investigating your design, I can see the pattern in it so I could just make blueprints of little parts and then use them to make the bigger one so it won't crash the gameQon wrote: If I made a 8192 balancer blueprint, would you actually use it? Well at least try open the bp in game, probably crashes before it's even made from the bp string...
It would be a lot easier if I modified the new generator to make "slices" of the blueprints. So the code generates the blueprints in many parts that are all aligned on 1 line and centered in the top left corner so it is trivial (but still a bit time consuming) to just place the blueprint parts one after another. But each iteration is about 4-5 times larger (in parts and area) than the previous. If the biggest blueprint you can place is 512, a 8192-balancer would be 625 parts sized about a 512 balancer each. Note that by trying to continue my work by following the pattern this number would be vastly larger and require you to align and create a lot of parts which would be even more time consuming than placing all those parts.
What is the biggest balancer you can place? How much RAM do you have?
