Construction bots non-random item placing

Postby CzBuCHi » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:19 pm

What ?

Make construction bots place items not randomly all over the blueprint but only when there is already placed item or player nearby....

Why ?

Currently after placing smelter BP and having only few bots, it takes really long time before smelter can produce anyting because bots are spraying items all over the place ...

TL/DR:

Imagine, that attached image represents game world at 4 stages of build ...
- green square: chest with all nesseseary items and roboport
- blue rectangle: ghost of smelting arrays
- orange lines: connection to outer world (power, belts, ...)
- black pixels: placed items

on upper site u can see current progress of bots building ... no smelting until bots decide to place items at beginning of array (may take a while ...)
on lower site u can see my proposal how bots should build ... smelting can start really soon because array is builded from begining to end

PS: Sorry if this was already suggested, but i didnt find it ...

Shrinking the construction zone size of personal roboports is a huge buff to their functionality for this very reason.

How do you shrink the construction zone size?

Any pointers to the API to use?

Code: Select all
data.raw["roboport-equipment"]["personal-roboport-equipment"].construction_radius = 10 --down from 15
data.raw["roboport-equipment"]["personal-roboport-mk2-equipment"].construction_radius = 15 --down from 20   


It's a very simple QOL roboport buff.

Args. That's not what I mend. That simply makes smaller roboport range. I want to shrink or grow it as needed. E.g. enter a train, shrink it to 1. Leave a train, grow it by one each tick till max.

With how game currently works you would need to dynamically replace equipment in grid I think since those parameters can't be modified in runtime.
