Re: My travel to the east

I forgot that completely. Sorry.

Meanwhile I expanded about 5000 tiles to the east. I built up a second far base at about 4200 tiles, which is supplied by the first one. (only in the last save).

Now here are the promised links:

#1 ... sp=sharing
#2 ... sp=sharing
#3 ... sp=sharing

The first one is the moment, when I had built up mining sites which fill 3 fast belts nearly fully. It is fun to restart from here and see, how all the items are transported to the 3000 tiles away base-factory.

The second is from the bug I reported by shortly. Just delete the wagon and play.

The third is from the other reported bug. You need to remove the beacons (in the center of the three ghost-furnace-complex) before they are placed by the cbots, OTHERWISE THE GAME CRASHES!
I wanted to rebuilt the furnace section from above into a very big furnace, which is filled from the storage at the right by the needs from the factory. So the furnaces makes all three types of ressources (iron plates, copper plates, steel), just dependent by the mixture you fill it into the furnace complex. All stuff coming out is put into a storage... The sorting of the stuff is then done by the logistic bots. This sounds more complex as it is, but look at the "storage" over the factory! I wondered if this is possible and I'm very keen on playing further from here, but have no time yet.

Some recommended places:
- Of course the factory. There is nothing very special here, and I had problems how I used the provider chests (by stack limitation instead of green inserter). But now this is fixed.
- The most interesting part is the area around 24,-11 and 43,10. This pulls the surplus into the storage and the follwing splitter joins from the same storage. It's a mess, but working. Never change a running system.
- I think I've solve the most problems with the empty barrels. I've currently two systems running: One which consists of two wagons. This are the trains which run to the station "The cyborg". First transport empty barrels, second the full barrels. New barrels are produced, if too less empty barrels.
The second type is, that there is nothing special. At Moodrix-station I fill the supply-trains with the needed stuff for the far away Lorenzo-Reijndorp-station and so on. So I fill also the empty barrels here. From the far away station(s) I use always trains with 4 wagons and just fill anything in, which I need. No sorting. I just put anything into the wagons. Look at the requester chests at the outer stations.
- The sorting is made in the FreeER-station. This is also a place you need to look at! It is fascinating, when a bulk of train arrives.
- From here is goes up to the furnaces (only in first and second save) and (I begin to repeat) the surplus is put into the "storage" over the factory center.
- Visit the Lorenzo-Reijdorp-station: There are 300 very busy logistic bots. Fascinating.
- From Tomik station you can drive to the very end in the east and fight. Use destroyer, defender and distractor capsules, and you can walk through like warm butter.

I think in 1-2 weeks I've time for a longer article about the consequences I take from this map. For example I think there is an optimal distance between the stations, which is about 1000-2000 tiles. The current distance to the first far outpost is too big in my eyes.

Have fun and tell me what you think.

I spent many hours to going south by train and I reached this position:
2.314, 230.096


I tried to find out the maximum:
1.000.000 in each direction
