I don't even.... KNOW what a Computer requires!
Heavy Frame - yeah ok.
I guess I'll have to go and write down a techtree with input/outputs to get to 100% efficiency and calculate backwards from there... not to mention having a layout that actually supports...
Oh. Now I remember why I never went and played Factorio... xD

WTH is this ?? Dayjob simulator 2.0 - the pre-Alpha !
and ... why am I so intrigued to try it out .. damn you
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 09:44

sounds like it... but a job that you actually LIKE!

I also just discovereda gigantic design failure.
It tells I never played anything like this before...
instead of feeding directly from miner into smelter into constructor I have to use one fast conveyor that splits off the ressources into the constructors... easier to maintain and expand... and more orderly.
I'm pretty sure I'll have to tear down that at some point as well, but hell... thats the price of sucking!

I think I need someone to coop with or I'll go mad tearing shit down because its just so slightly off symmetry...

lol .. and your co-op buddy keeps moving things and waiting to see how long before you notice and go insane

you just disqualified yourself from ever being allowed to enter my factory!

sounds like a thing you get much better at on second playthru
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 09:47
yeah... thing is... do I tear down everything which is a chore or start over fresh... which is funnier but a waste of time?

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 21 09:47
But ... but .. I'll be good honest

you better hurry up then or else I'd have to spend 3 hours explaining my extremely complicated setup to you :P

@Thairne
Mar 21 09:50
NO! only smell da fishy!
this game is triggering me so very bad... xD

I can only imagine ... I had to quit ANNO 2070 because I got a massive map all sorted and then the enemy AI attacked and the shipments got all messed up ..... my nightmares
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 09:54
luckily things like that dont happen here... yet.
but when you think about it... the triggering is actually caused by my own incompetence :P

"why is my constructor not getting fed?!" ... looks out at angry mutant squirrels stealing coal
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 09:55
dude
I went through hell to get coal!
If that little fucker keeps messing with me its CLOBBERING TIME!

mine was always bottle necks, set production to 100% - MINE ALL THA THINGS ... but we don't have storage for All da things!! ... MINE IT ANYWAYS
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 09:57
this game is worse.
If a conveyor does not move smoothly - triggered!
Worst thing is, the machines actually have green, yellow and red lights for when they work

jus realised I'm a 6'2" dwarf of Moria .... deeper faster more !

@Thairne we could co-op, I just finished a full factory tear down
So just a pile of resources and 4 pure iron nodes, a pure coal, and pure copper and limestone
Need to automate motors, HMFs and computers for caterium research and T6 milestones
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 17:22
Totally can do!
I will now start the teardown and go from linear to parallel... should definately make things easier.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 21 18:21
will probably need to use voice to not make coordination an unholy nightmare
or could start fresh in a map and go from there, perhaps try and build scalable
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 18:38
yeah, voice is mandatory... Doesnt have voice chat build in I think?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 18:46
restarting would take a while... is an option of course, but I just learned a thing or two. Now to figure out how to efficiently supply assemblers in parallel...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 21 20:59
Can use discord or something similar
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 21:28

aye, need discord in the first place then though :

Made some good progress in the meantime. Tried to make everything scalable.. and mostly succeeded.

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 21 21:29
To be fair
Honestly I personally think we should ditch gitter and go to discord
Because discord is better on mobile
But that’s just me
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 21 21:34
Does discord have git support?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 21 21:38
Uhhhh good question
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 21:52
probably not, unless you want to write a bot for it
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 21 22:05
Someone probably has already written a bot
I'll have a look
Yep, there are a few
@/all thoughts about me setting up a discord server for BSdata? Would also allow us to be found easier for questions and support multiple text channels
Not to mention public/private based on server roles
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 22:11
would certainly let us be more organised
and let us have multiple conversations at once :smile:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 21 22:11
I'll start setting that up when I get home then
Since I have experience with server admin
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 22:12
probably wait for a few more opinions first, particularly @amis92
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 21 22:12
@/all Did anyone get Shadowspear and have the Vanguard rules?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 22:13
i have a scan somewhere if you want it
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 21 22:14
@Mad-Spy I have them if y’all want pics or anything.
I can also just work them up as is, if you like.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 21 22:14
Just want to check whether Wolves Infiltrators lose Combat Squads.
I couldn't see it in any of the pics I've seen online.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 21 22:15
I'm fine on git or discord
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 21 22:18
Not actually sure.
That’d make sense, but I’ve yet to see any FAQs or anything
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 21 22:19
but it's not in the Codex?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 22:19

the only thing that changes for SW is keywords
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 21 22:20
yeah, that's what I'd seen. It's annoying that they (perhaps) forgot that all WGBLs are WOLF GUARD as well as BATTLE LEADERS including the Primaris ones.
but apparently Phobos WGBLs aren't WOLF GUARD
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 22:23
it'll probably be an erratum soon
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 21 22:25
I sent it to the FAQ email, so hopefully.
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 21 22:27
Like I said, I figured it’ll be FAQ’d, but nothing yet

@flakpanda
Mar 21 23:47
I’d vote for discord over gitter. Better ux and we can have multiple channels. Seeing as there is a hit bit, it can be tested to see if it will serve our needs
I only have gitter for this
So I’d rather ditch it.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 21 23:49
i'm the same, pretty much. the main advantage (that i see) for gitter is easy github integration, but if there's a bot for that then i'm not seeing much of a reason to stick with gitter
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 21 23:51
Agreed
Gitter (ESPECIALLY MOBILE) is just trash
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Mar 21 23:51
Yeah, if gitter actually had kept up and not stuck in the past, this wouldn’t be a problem
Yeah, iOS gitter is stuck on like the version from iphone6
