Just 3-4 more Ressources?

Post by doppelEben »

Hey guys

Few weeks ago I started to play factorio and I'm already addicted as hell :D
Now I have a question: I just came across bob's mod - interesting stuff; and I downloaded most of them. But for now I just want to have 3-4 more Ressources instead of 20 (feels like).
Is there any mod out there, or any possibility to use bobs oremod in this way? I just want 2-3 ore and 1-2 new fluids - inclusive changed recipes overall, that would be great :oops:

best regards,

doppelEben

Maybe try Bio-Industries mod.
It doesn't add any new ore but it does add a lot of new materials and a way to generate and use wood.

are the recipes more simple than in bobs mod? Its not that I'm not able to do so; but I just want some 'intermediate' step

Without Bob's mods you simply get a lot of ways to get iron and copper ore and crushed stone to make stone.

I just started my solorun with bobs mod last night, besides my already running almost-vanilla-2-player-cooperative-run. I had all startparameters on default; but I think I have way too less lead? Oo Or is that normal that lead is that rare? :roll:

If somebody know another mod, wich just adds 3-4 Ores and 1-2 Fluids and changes almost all recipes / assemblingroutes; please let me know; I'm still interested altought I get used to bobs thousands ores and stuff :twisted: :D

You don't need that much lead... To start with it's only used in solder I think and you only need a small amount to create a lot of circuits, the biggest user is probably batteries. Can't remember the ratios but I had two Electric Furnaces (MK1) feeding 10 T1, 6 T2, 5 T3 and 5 T4 circuit productions and they kept up no problem. A single small patch got me going right up until I was building a dedicated section for smelting (I'm using a modular approach) and was already having to import other resources such as plastic, silicon and gold.

Currently hunting around for tungsten, found one small patch a fair distance away but once I got the colour on the map I was able to locate a larger, closer one.

Bob's Mods is kind of like "hard mode" for Factorio though >< so much added complexity. Just moderate T1 - T4 circuit production (not including raw material processing such as greenhouses and smelting) is about the size of a small factory capable of building a rocket in vanilla. I don't really think it's quite what you're asking for =P

I find the lack of documentation for Bob's Mods a problem.

It looks as though there was once information on the Factorio Wiki about them, if Google search results are to be believed.

Are these pages gone forever?

Or are they retrievable to incorporate into new online documentation for Bob's mods?

I'm considering writing a mod parser in Java (I learn languages by starting a massive project lol) so it doesn't have to be kept up to date, just point it at the mods and it can give you recipes and stats but hopefully also a layout designer... Not sure when I'll get the time though.

If you Google some of Bob's Mods stuff it comes up on a separate wiki but I think it's pretty out of date.

Can you please discuss about special mods in the thread about that special mod? TNX :)

4dim uses actualy just extra 5 recources

it spawns just gold , aluminium , zinc , tin and lead for t2-t3 recepies

Also to note first 3 do not spawn in starting area zone


4dim is like bobs lite , i like it more as it adds more machines and some stuff more complex/harder , but without ridiculousness
