And I need red circuits (and green ones) to produce blue circuits.
I produce 11.000 red circuits per minute.
I think that's enough to produce blue ones.
My goal is to start one rocket every minute.

That's the beginning:

That's amazing.

I think you should use beacons and modules, and produce the red circuits directly into machines that are making the blue circuits, and also maybe make the plastic bars in place, so you won't have to run crazy belts. Running petroleum to the mini-factories would be easier.

### Re: Let's see your clever builds

Cool idea (direct insertion red -> blue), especially since they share the green requirement.

Let's look at the numbers:

Assuming max prod3 modules and crafting speed 1 (i.e. assuming all assemblers have the same crafting speed)

blue circuit consumes 2/15=0.133 red circuits per second
red circuit produces (1/8)*1.4*1.125 = 0.19 circuits per second

So, with direct inserting from red to blue you should run the blue at .19/.13 ~ 1.5 times the crafting speed. With a smart beacon setup that should be attainable, i.e. have the blue surrounded by 6 speed beacons (3.4 crafting speed) and the red by 4 (2.4 crafting speed)

Blue requires 1.33 green per second and red requires (1/8)*2=0.25, so since green produces quite a bit more ((1/.5)*1.4=2.8) direct insertion is not so interesting there. Including the red circuit production, blue requires (20 + 2*2/1.4) / 15 = 1.52 green per second, so you can feed around 2 (red+)blues for one green, assuming equal boosting. A setup with one green outputting "left and right" to red+blue plants could be interesting, if enough space can be found to fit all the needed boosters and input belts

### Re: Let's see your clever builds

in my endless game i am trying to get one rocket each 60 sec. this how i build blue and speedmodul 1. my problem is the amount of green getting produced and transported.this setup has 128 assambler for blue.

i have now added factorissimo but i wont destroy this setup

Prototype all-in-one for blue
The ratios are close but don't quite add up, and I didn't do anything to optimize input belts at all, but I thought it is a nice idea to integrate green -> 2 red -> 2 blue with direct insertion...

Needed mods (I guess?)
AlienEggs - The initial spawn of aliens
Item Collectors - Pick up eggs automatically
Alien Artifact Loot - To make aliens drop eggs
Alien Science - To get the first egg to start it all off with

So I guess kind of cheaty but

Full safety RR crossing using circuit networking. Gates and signals are networked to their respective sides of the tracks. Closes gates on train approach. If you beat the gate it will stop the train. the gate closing signals are well before the gates themselves. You are not likely to get past the gate with a train in the danger zone.
. But just in case you do there are 2 signals, per track, wired to stop the train on your approach to the gate. One on the far outside near the end of the wall and the ones closer in as an emergency back up.
Please ignore the disgusting Lab setup. I added in a couple mods recently after i was done with research. Had to throw something together to get it done real quick :/

The outside gates are not connected to the network. They are just there for aesthetic

8 to 16 splitter (credit 4 to 4 and 8 to 8 Madzuri) setup for mixing cargo as well as keeping it separated at the same time. It's not a perfect split. Still working that part out. Having problems going 4 to 3 in a way that I like.

I feed all of my smelting lines via logistics using the warehousing mod. So, i can just mix ores on a belt and feed them into storage that way. I've tried mining directly into storage but I don't like it. You end up with way to many chests meaning your robots are spread thinner then if you just belt them into storage. Or you can even load them onto enough belts to have a solid line of ore and put them into provider chests that way. Either way it's a lot more efficient than mining directly into chests.

Setup to feed my smelters -->

How to empty a full car full of ore in a 5 second stop.
And in this case, transfer it to another train.

Any chance of a Blueprint string, please? I would LOVE to implement this, as I am a master of Train-Fu and have an innate talent for being on the track at the precise moment a multi-ton body moving at high speed needs to occupy the same space...

Will have to grab the mod and get it for you. Busy atm so I'll try to get that done this evening.

Edited the string into my post on the previous page.

Destroyer Module factory. Input correct items on belts as shown in the image. Output is placed in a provider chest for instant access in logistic system.
Use whatever modules you want in the beacons/plants.

### Single Bus solution v.1 Beta

mainbus.png (1.63 MiB) Viewed 15842 times
3 bus solution for factories from small to large. I have not designed mega base yet.
1 bus for iron plates
1 bus for copper plates
1 bus for everything else

The bus loops in a circle to bleed off any missed items and so I have 2 chests in the right corner to catch any overflow to prevent the bus from locking up

Decider combinators to control the requests of items.
There is a buffer chest on both the inputs & outputs. Input chests are limited as needed, usually 1 stack is enough. Output chests store as much as needed (i.e. gears have 4-5 slots due to demand). This prevents delays in production when the assemblers need to work.

Easy to expand by adding on more assemblers
Auto management of resources produced based on demand with nothing on the belt <-- Cleaner looking base
Most important --> !!!! Clean linear look !!!! No more spaghetti western mess

Let me figure out how to export them. Haven't read that yet.

I see there is a Blueprint String mod. Is that how you copy blueprints? What do you use?
