My old, old original version of this. (and probably the reason productivity modules got the nerf hammer so hard :()

You do realize you can craft level two modules in 3 seconds, and level threes in 6 right?

I've updated my backup power system. It works better than before. I had mixed up some pipes, and had too many pumps.
zoomed out
BP string codes
Disconnect these power lines from main grid by shift clicking them:
power sensor
bootstrap engines
It does use red and green wires to work. Why both? Because hopefully, someday, I can replace the red network with a simple power sensor, and have it just green. Comments, criticisms?

I have never even touched modules. I always get to around the point of just starting in on blue or purple science, and then end up just wanting to start over. Half the time I have the ability to build an entire logistics networks laced into a train network that spans the universe, but am still just setting up personal inserter production :P

If modules could be part of the blueprint I'd usem more often and consider them when planning production sites.
Alas, as they're not, I can't be bothered running around and plug them in for each and every factory or beacon.

To stay at off-topic: I keep my opinion, that modules should not be part of a blueprint by default. Only, if you explicitly wish that, when you copy it, cause you know for example, that it is not working in the correct way.

Module settings in entities should be part of a "module configurator", cause it makes sense to automate the module settings; and much more sense to change that depending to your current needs. And the most sense to automatically change module settings depending on your needs. That has absolutely nothing to do with the blueprint you use for building it.

you need more solar panels

for 3k accumulators, you need around 3.5k solar panels, so have fun.

Looking at the graph, it's easy to tell he actually has way more solar panels than required, compared to his current usage. You can see the big spike in the morning as the accumulator recharge, then it drops way off, less than a quarter into the day.

I mean, yeah, you are right that they are not at the correct ratio, but he's so massively over built that it doesn't matter. He's not short by any means!

Well, we were in this before someone did the math for the correct solar panel / accumulator ratios, so...

We got enough space and stuff though, so that should be a small problem :D

Some dirty energy here.

I cheated a bit on this, multiplied pollution absorption value by 10 in treefarm-lite mod.

Hi guys, I just found how good was the distractor capsule to kill bitter. In order to boost my capsule production I build this small factory.Image
