Pitiful, first creations

Post by llVIU » Tue Aug 27, 2019 9:46 pm

I had a look at one of my old saves and... oh my god. At the time, I came up with this ''neat'' way to automize things. How ridiculous. And of course the ''ingenious'' mine/smelter design.

I was so new to the game that I didn't even know you're supposed to research the items first, I just had it all researched. I didn't even knew you were supposed to have a player. I just played in free mode/sandbox

Way more orderly than my first saves, though I think I beat yours in efficiency.

I'm both glad and sad that I don't have any old saves.

However your last image with the daisy-chained iron plates reminds me of my coal buffer. It was like a 10x10 grid of wooden chests, with burner inserters going up and to the right through them all. 10 inserters brought coal in from a belt on the left, and 10 more put coal back on the same belt as it went across the top of the array.

I have no idea the percentage of that coal that went into powering those burner inserters, but I'm sure it wasn't worth it :D

Heh, just tested : 101 boxes + 100 burner inserters with 1 stack size in a single line, 300 coal loaded in the first box : coal made it to inserter 82.5 (inserters use, initially 2 coal : one to power themselves, another to keep in the fuel slot until needed).

(Also, I had forgotten that burner inserters emit a flickering light when working - pretty !)
