Red/Green wire info not complete / misleading

Post by GrumpyJoe » Mon Feb 18, 2019 10:14 am

Imho, the hints at green and red wire entry about bots "placing" wire connection for free is not complete.

You dont even need bots for it, just a blueprint that has the wire connections.
If you pick up the right power pole (or any other wired entity for that matter) and place it on the ghosts, it will "build" the circuit connections "for free" just as bots would do.
It has more to do with blueprints than bots.

Im not sure about different versions of the same item type (wood vs. steel chest, yellow vs. blue inserter, etc.) but i think this should be noted somehow.

Thank you for bringing this up, this is a relatively new behaviour that simply had not been noted yet. I have now fixed the pages.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.
