Actually I've had a thought, that feature is going to feel a bit odd if you can't use bots to rotate stuff. I mean you could deconstruct and reconstruct...

This could tie in to the fast-replace option if the upgrade planner is implemented as it needs to be. As in, select your whole base and all the belts get upgraded (over time if not immediately available) without stopping the flow of resources. You could then use ghosts to fast-replace, or "upgrade", a blue belt with another blue belt pointing in a different direction.
Money might be the root of all evil, but ignorance is the heart.

I think it's possible. I feel it in my guts....
I bet 2k blue circuits, a steel axe and one fresh fish that the first 0.15 public experimental will be released european lunchtime on Tuesday May 2nd. :roll:

I bet twelve consultations with a Factorio specialized psychiatrist at a emergency clinic in Praha if not next Friday will come a 0.15 announcement for the following Monday morning - and that the servers will subsequently crash for 48 hours under the load

Хорошо, что ближайшие 2 недели мне будет не до игры. Это значит, что мучительное ожидание новой версии не сведёт меня с ума.
It's good that the next 2 weeks I will not be up to the game. This means that the agonizing expectation of a new version will not drive me crazy.

Unless 0.15 is released monday, then you'll agonize for two weeks because you can't play the new version!!!

You mean how far away we are from 0.15. :P

I expect another delay. One or maybe two months.

I am happy I lost my blue circuits and stuff, easily worth a week earlier access!

Ui, betting taking place. Sounds like fun - I bet that we will get 3 releases in the same week as the original release of 0.15 :D
Greetings, Nova.
