None of these arguments were ad hominem


This discussion is not about enforcing people to put cables on belts: they can do whatever they please. Point is not to become stuck in archaic thinking "cables on belts is bad" and keep an open mind about it, because there are some times, when it is not only plausible solution, but also best one. Both in terms of space, speed, and footprints.

Brilliant!


And yes, I've done cables on belts. It's not bad. It's a critter that can get out of hand easily, but it's not an evil. Evil is using a cable-on-belt design in multiplayer and watching the OCD's freak the F out.

Did someone mention copper wires on belts?

Though with a setup like this, copper wires on belts are probably the least of my crimes.

I thought it was a prerequisite for Factorios to be OCD. Of course I'm all for shifting the organized pens on their desk too.

One of many ;)

I've started a fresh game on Factorio. I've not played at all since the birth of 11.2. I figured that as I moan a lot about cables on belts, I'd show how I do my green circuits, with buffer boxes.

I'm about 4hrs in so I don't have a huge need for circuits, yet... (click for full pic)
