A sunday morning with green circuits

Post by disentius »

Messing around with factorio calc, i found this:

Ten belts in, four belts out, no leftovers.
Decided to build the damned thing. Had to be symmetric and have nice power pole placement of course.
:D

That looks awesome! In my last main bus, my electronic circuits ran out too quickly. Definitely downloading this blueprint.

That is a very nice use of the filter splitters in the middle there. Never thought of that :)

Nice but boring. Any linear 2-components assembling could be deepened with this tapering outer supply bus.

I think this was more about:
Ten belts in, four belts out, no leftovers.
just an example of how much of the same "standard" 3:2 build you need to achiev that goal.
but the switching of iron/green in the middle is a very cool idea i must say

@GrumpyJoe:
Yes and Yes :)

I am sort of doodading along waiting for 0.17, and decided to find out how splitter priorities/filters can be used. Turns out there is A LOT I don't know about them yet. ;)

Why build a massive module without productivity and beacons?
You can get 6 almost fully compressed blue belts out of 4 blue belts copper in half the footprint. It'll even have better performance from less entities.

For Fun :)
My actual setup as soon as i have beacons and modules looks more like this:
