Energy graphs on electric network info

Post by HeilTec »

For some time I've been wishing for some graphs on the electric network info screen. Just displaying the percentages for production and storage.
I would really like to have this. It would highly enhance the experience of optimizing power production.

This is what I'm dreaming of (top right):

Note that the solar panels shows 100% during night.

Nice mock up!

If nothing else is planned for that space, then I'd totally second this suggestion.

Somewhat related but no mention of any graph. Seems to mostly to concern what values the power meter displays.
I opened this topic to get the graphs of storage and capacity under consideration, wishing to see how close to brownout I come during night, without having to monitor the bars manually in the early game-morning. Also to compare nights to eachother.

This is something I'd like to see in the game since you can't currently get any history of accumulator charge.

A graph for this would be really neat, I am tired of manual monitoring to see how well my factory survives the day-night-cycles.
Is there any mod for this yet?

What I'd like is a graph of accumulator charge over time. This would let me check in the morning and see how low it got the previous night instead of trying to catch it right as it hits the nightly low.

Look in combinator contraptions.
I recall seeing someone having used rolling average and a display driver to display average accumulator charge and steam levels. :ugeek:
