Finished PyMods (Alien Life not included)

Post by fusion_future »

Here's a link to the base. Give it some time to load, it should clear up a bit when you zoom:

I also attached the save file if you want to poke around

I started back on November 30th 2021.

282 hours, 17 minutes, and 57 seconds.

My first attempt only lasted about 30 hours as I didn't realize biters weren't quite compatible at the default settings.

Unfortunately I felt I nerfed the biters a bit too much in the second play through but live and learn I suppose:

Enemy Bases:
Freq: 50%
Size: 50%
Starting Size:
200%
Expansion: OFF
Evolution:
Time:0
Destroy:2
Pollution:1

Prior to this I did a Bob's+Angel's and that was great but Pyanadon's takes it to the next level and beyond.
I think it would be almost impossible to not use YAFC, absolutely instrumental in quickly planning out production lines.
When I do decide to play again I think I'll turn the freq and size of bases back to 100% and turn Destroy/Pollution up a bit but still leave Time at 0. Even with time at 0 the evo factor was well over .9.
Incredible playthrough, amazing mod (buildings, recipes, sounds effects, animations, etc.). Thank you very much Pyanadon! I can tell a ton of work went into this mod. Had to Patreon for a few months at top tier at the very least!

wow! Congrats! I wonder how many have done that in total? (it has to be less than 100?). Do you think you could post a large-resolution screenshot of your base?
I am just curious, what part of the mod did you feel was the hardest?

Thanks, I'll try to get a big screenshot tonight (trying to see what's the best method, console or via a mod).
I think the hardest part of the game changed throughout the game depending at where I was tech/resource wise.
Early on I would say power was an issue with MK1 powerhouses/electrolyzers as you need a lot of buildings in this mod (that take up a lot of power). Once I got MK2 power buildings it wasn't too bad and by the time those were capping out I had enriched enough uranium to go pretty much fully nuclear. It did take a little bit of planning on the nuclear plant as I did 2x8 so I had to carefully keep the pipe count down to ensure enough fluid throughput.

Towards the mid-late game I would say establishing a constant flow of resources was a bit of a challenge. It wasn't the hardest thing but there's just so many resources and dependences that it doesn't take much to disrupt the flow of science packs. That brings up a point that makes me really like this mod. You seem to get the chance to research a tech and gain access to a new building or recipe at the right time to keep up with the ever increasing demands of the factory. It has a great flow and sense of achieving the "next level" to face the next challenge.

Yeah, all those options and having to figure out what is the best path forward for your situation is what makes pY great ! (And the art of course !)

(And also sometimes maddening, when you realize that you forgot about a dependency item required for a building !)

Congratulations !!

YAFC is not really an option for me, I don't appreciate how it treats Linux as a second class citizen and forces you to use Microsoft software : GitHub and especially dotnet...

So far, I made do (both in 0.16 and in pYAL) with What is it Really Used For and Helmod. (Does YAFC manage to solve the Uranium 3 processing chain ?)
Helmod's Pin Production Block and Pipette Assembler tools are *really* convenient - a bonus of having the tool directly integrated inside Factorio !

Anyone else playing with biters?

(Though this discussion kind of assumes Alien Life.)

Pre-Alien Life (and pre-Petroleum Handling), in 0.16 I had managed to get up to Blue Science on Death World (abusing the hell out of biter bugs in the hard stretch that are early blue biters).

(By that point biters weren't a deadly threat any more - and I would probably have continued that game if I hadn't been too impatient to try out Petroleum Handling and Alien Life !)
