  1. Past hour
  2. How do you have different background in customisation menu?
  3. That's why I was asking Jan to post it on youtube. You said you clipped it so...
  4. Minespatch, there's a high chance that it's already been deleted. In fact I know it probably is deleted, because the space industry upgrade was dropped more than 2 months ago. Edit: Yup, it's gone. I'll see if I clipped it though.
  5. Stinky in the Space industry short. He wasn't in the final product.
  6. Yeah I've read the same, it's not true anymore. They eat 120W no matter the signal. However they DO turn off randomly (for a tick every 3 or 4 seconds, it's very weird). Jesus... yes. Hmm, would there be a way to extract sub green signals from that? Good sir redwire? Could you make the machine send me green signals for every meteor season, then I would know the 1st one is iron, 2nd green is gold (or w/e) and etc. Or even better (?), have 3 outputs. Output 1 would be iron, 2 copper, 3 gold. That would be useful for commercial journeys (as in cargo bays rockets on small distance)
  7. I'm sure you can figure that out by seeing that it's 10g/s per tile combined flow rate of water. So you can quickly see on the water level how many seconds it's into the the full 34 cycle... uhm... cycle. Just note that for the calibration to work, it start with the first peace season after a iron meteor season just like it says in the picture. Why would you need rocket scanners when it's peace season unless you have something else that requires it? You can just have the doors open during peace season.
  8. Mind posting the deleted storyboard so I can download it with twitchleacher? I'll repost it on my youtube.
  9. Me everything Ragtime part of the show starts:


  10. Well I guess that is a second way to do it. You are correct, that should work indeed. 12k W per rocket well spent... (oh lord :D) Yes, well, ok. I may give it a shot but, for now I see some problems. It's not NASA, it's ONI and, you know, well, my purpose was to see how much I can automate. Those doors escape my grasp and that's annoying. But on to the contraption <-> situation problems : 1°) How do I know which season is which? I understand your system gives out green or red for peace or meteor war, but how do I, if I am to calculate, can know which green is 10, 7 or 5 cycle long? Basically how do I segregate between the greens, or reds for that matter (as in if it's red, which peace season are we in - I know they're all 4 cycles long, I mean what is the next meteor season). 2°) Using this system, in this case, defeats automation because it requires me to... anticipate, well, manually intervene before every launch. This effectively renders all my rocketry automation moot, or not very purposeful. Not too thrilled by that. 3°) Cutting scanner array cost is amazing and I dig it. I currently turn 5/6 meteor scanners off during meteor showers, and +100s after them, which I like. Turning them off during peace season is great and I was contemplating that, however... However it **** my rocket detection very hard if I do that. If I turn them off to save power during peace, then... I can never open my doors reliably on time, because I never have the network for it (no network during showers, no network during peace -> might as well just leave a container full of steel near the doors, for the repairs). It really feels like power toggling is the easiest, cheapest & safest way. Extra cheap actually because not only do you need only 1 scanner for each event, you also cuts its power consumption in half (or so). That's a whole lot of pros, for a... well, edgy solution. I wish we had a "proper" way.
  11. Imagine how many pages would be filled by now if no one sent that twitter print lol.
  12. Don't scanners not consume electricity when sending a red output? So they will use 0 watts during peace anyway? That's what I hear on the forums anyway.
  13. If we didn't got that screenshot from twitter we probably would still waiting for news and wurt thread still would be hot right now.
  14. This drives me absolutely batty. I have some high priority bins set up for collecting ice, and this also really confuses the hell out of my dupes. This has also happened in my smokestack builds with a tiny amount of CO2 constantly changing phases inside my cold tank. Not cool.
  15. You can look at it this way. NASA and every other space agency don't just launch rockets willy-nilly. They calculate a launch window. This contraption allows you to do the same. And it'll cut your scanner array power cost by about 1/3rd.
  16. Build 100 scanners anywhere for each rocket. They get separate rolls from 1-200. You'll be very likely to detect in time.
  17. Me: I wanna see how low I can get my battery before I really need to charge it!

    Also me:



    It's becoming really hard to avoid the urge to go charge it.

    1. DragonMage156


      Why tho? Just charge the damned thing XD

    2. watermelen671


      Naw...I'm just testing the battery life. I mean, it's been 24 minutes and it's gone down to 24%

  18. First of all, while there communication is definitly better than the average game studio, however, the truth of the matter is that the wurt thread was on fire for hours in hype, and got a metric button of pages in the same time, yet it wasn't until someone shared a screen cap from Twitter that we knew news wouldn't be coming. They definitly should have knocked down the hype tower early instead of letting it build so high. Second, while the game is fantastic, certainly, it does have some glaring flaws. Infact, a good portion of the posts here are suggesting ways to improve the game. But doesn't that just prove that the community cares about the game and wants to see it improve?
  19. Yes I just saw your topic, right on time for this one it seems. Well this looks overly complicated just to avoid smashing my doors with rockets, but... well, that's one other way i guess Seriously, can it not be done a much straight forward way?
  20. Oh, yep I was using old info. So it's 4-10-4-7-4-5 now. Yeah, use that contraption.
  21. if playing woodie, you can use werebeaver to nibble at the nightstand to get several endtable blueprints if playing webber/wortox, you can still force werepig transformations by feeding them monster meat, bait their first attack (since they are aggro to you), then give them monster meat, then dodge their next attack and repeat until they transform if playing wigfrid, you can kill spiders, cook their monster meat drops and then eat it, this will cost you 3 health and 10 sanity which is easily replenished by fighting more spiders and can fill hunger, sanity and health
  22. Wurt

    History,my friend !!
  23. Not quite so anymore. It's much more complex. See But if you want to make absolutely sure you never have broken doors then you can use my updated water clock I posted a short while ago. It will tell you exactly when it's peace season or meteor season (precision is -0/+2 seconds), and then you can calculate forwards to only launch when you know it will land in a peace season. Mostly the peace season clock is to power off the meteor scanners while it's peace season as they're not needed.
