Bluescreen Detection & Electric Network Monitoring

Post by Nosferatu »

Have you heard the shocking news?
A deep brownout can freeze your precious combinator contraptions.
Chaos could unfold inside your factory right now and you would not even notice :shock: :shock: :shock:

But don't panic - just install Nos#Fi's Bluescreen Detection & Electric Network Monitoring system and you will be fine.

It's simple and effective. It just compares the output of a combinator in your electrical network with one that has it's one supply and gives out a global warning.
But of course then it is already to late. That's why there are more detectors in there:

First we have a checking tool that monitors if all batterys are charged to 100% everyday --> if not --> Build more Solars!
And then there is the standard "battery below 40%" --> Build more batterys warning

Why is this called “blue screen detection”? It detects low power, not crashes.

It detects when your combinators begin to stop responding - it's more a hanging than a crashing but I wanted to be dramatic

Ironically enough, the problem that the linked post was talking about was stuff not freezing in a brownout.
