  1. Subbed, my dude. This has been most interesting. Ive also been looking into Autodesk Process Analysis (free product) to possibly optimise my setups. Might be interesting for you 😉

  2. I can't remember where I saw it but I have taken to using a technique that allows 3 if the same belt to occupy a 2 wide area, by having underground belts at maximum length, offset so the second lane start and end in the middle of the other lane, you can weave a third, longer belt around and between them.
    if you place he assembly machines so that the middle lines up to a point where the woven belt switches sides, one assembly machine , with 1 or 2 long inserters and 2 or 1 fast inserters can access 3 blue belts of resources.
    very useful for a blue circuit setup to get 2 and a half lanes of green circuits and half a lane of red.

  3. Really solid video – I spent a half hour trying to figure out how to use power switches and you showed me in 10 seconds. I had only seen one other of these tips before as well, nice job!

  4. I like to remove power lines from poles and put green/red wires on a separate set of poles from the power network so it's easier to see. I find it's a good use for all those old wooden power poles (at least before they added the ability to BURN them for fuel).

  5. One thing to mention regarding downgrading chests – if there is not enough room in the new chest to hold all the items, it will put the remainder into your inventory. BUT – if there is not enough room in your inventory, the remaining items spill onto the ground! This can be rather unfortunate if the items had a high stack size (like alien artifacts), since it will end up covering a potentially huge area.

  6. Good video, but the math at 8:35 is wrong, since the pollution growth is exponential

    I'll pick up your example, the player destroys five spawners.

    The first spawner would increase the evolution by .2% . The second destroyed spawner would make the result of the previous calculation rise. Then the third would take that result and would add .2% of it again etc etc

    Calculation: (whatever pollution level you're at)*1.002*1.002*1.002*1.002*1.002
    OR (pollution level)*1.002 ^5

    I multiplied with 1.002 instead of .002 since we want to know the total amount of pollution and not just what 2% of it is.

  7. 0.0004% per tick is wrong.. This would be 0.024% per second, 1,44% per minute, 86,4% per hour. Full evolution after an hour right…,. By this time i usually start automating science to invent turrets in the first place, and you have behemoths. LOL
