Pitiful, first creations

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 !)

My oldest save ( Version 0.15.31 )
My LAST new game world :o ( "finished 3 weeks ago" - No Rockets )

but my first save is long time gone :c...

i was one of first players in this game xD

long time ago there was no biters :o

biters replace zombies, worms replaced Rocket turrets
also beacons replaced labs and many more stuff got changed xD

Your base is pretty good if its rly your first base :P
i invite many friends to this game and half of them stop playing cause they don't know how to play xD lol

other half build so bad stuff :c...

Your base compere to thier looks rly good :)...

on important thing i saw on your save... YOU ARE MAKING PIPES !...
WTF i saw so fking many server where EVERY SINGLE ONE was CRAFTING PIPES BY HAND

ppl build BUS and they insert PLASTIC on BUS... but they don't want to make automatic Pipe ASM-s =_=

1) Pipe ( You need a lot of it at start of game for Electric production )
2) Belts
3) Inserters

why so many ppl ignore pipes :c...
thats why im happy you have pipes ASM ;D

and other thing i saw on your save... xD Red and Yellow belt production :)...
Yeee... just look how Yellow belt is inserted to red belt and think about this for while xD

there is 1 field space between Red and Yellow belt ASM :)...

ofc. there is many more problems but at first base :o looks really really great
