got a MASSIVE new update - WIRES!

Get here: Part 4 - this update is absolutely massive, so much so that this video barely scratches the surface. Use wires to program specific structures, which I can only imagine will get significantly more complicated. Enjoy!
Edited by: Tyler is a minimalist factory building automation game inspired by Factorio! Optimization in its purest form, we must extract shapes from the source, cut them up in different ways, color them, and combine them with other shapes. Starts simple, gets increasingly complex due to the extreme shapes you must create and the infinitely expanding map.

  • Now you can build an automatic factory like mine :

    Hedi BFHedi BF2 kuukautta sitten
  • So if the belt checker is 0 or 1 if it’s not moving or moving, and the painter paints if 1 and doesn’t if 0, you can hook up painters to moving/not moving belts and make different colored shapes depending on if I belt is moving or not, which could be true (or not) if a specific factory is backed up. I don’t really know what else is possible, this definitely unlocks new mechanics. I’m definitely excited to unlock this myself in a day or two and try it out for myself!

  • Now my highly compact stack and color for any shape needs a massive update. i no longer need so many painters just because colorless wasn't possible before with painter's. maybe now its even possible to make the 4 dimensions single layer shape (all corners are a different size and are not over something)

    • I can tell you with 100% certainly, that shape you're thinking of is impossible. But also uncoloured parts of shapes were always possible if you cut up differently coloured shapes and assembled the quads back together again.

  • something I've noticed with the quad painter: like you said, it's super dye inefficient, but there are some really neat ways to get around this, especially with the ability to disable its inputs. my method is to paint the entire shape with a standard row of painters first, then use the quad painter to fill in any small details I need to add.

    Joseph SJoseph S3 kuukautta sitten
    • Interesting method, although I think that's still only ~4 quads painted per paint on average, and worse when there's more colours.

  • Fun fact: to get a full belt of the first shape past when you unlock wires, you need 32 full belts of the raw dye colors if you are using quad painters and everything is at the same level. Unless there’s an efficiency I’ve missed. But because the quad painter takes 4 dye per whole shape, there are 4 layers, and half of the colors is white which requires 3 raw dye meaning the average raw dye per dye used is 2, 4*4*2 = 16. As far as I can tell, using double painters painting full shapes and then splitting, rotating, and combining those, the optimal solution would be 4 full belts of dye per full belt of the result shape.

      Maddox GlassnerMaddox Glassner2 kuukautta sitten
    • @-Yttrium- yeah, it's in a tough spot. It runs through items fast, but if you're running more than 1 or 2 colors, it gets messy really really fast, and your bus might as well be a highway. I like using it for the method I mentioned above, it seems to save on space, though I usually space my designs out quite a bit so I can focus on getting maximum output. Like in my image, you can see how small the quad painter is when painting two inputs with a single line (still full speed) and it's definitely the way to go for crazy shapes that can't pick a favorite color or "make everything" contraptions.

      Joseph SJoseph S3 kuukautta sitten
    • @Joseph S That's indeed a better option than letting the quad painter do all the work. Though it seems like the quad painter is only perfect for shapes needing 4 different colors or 1 corner changed. otherwise reducing belts is crucial in most of my setups.

      -Yttrium--Yttrium-3 kuukautta sitten
    • if you paint the shape white or another color beforehand, you can minimize how many paint lines you need to setup. Also, assuming you have a quad painter capable of 7 items per second on a 14 item/second belt, you can support two paint lines with a single fully loaded color belt. You only need 2 quad painters to keep up with the belt's 14 item/s speed. for each portion of the shape, you need: - 6 to 7 regular painters (@2.33 items/sec) - 1 full white belt (color circle beforehand) - 2 quad painters (@7 items/sec, split white circles between them) - 2 full red belts (1 to each quad painter) that would be 12 belts I think. I didn't do that for my solution, but I did that for my latest shape. edit: yeah, I think that works out. obviously the proportions depend on your levels. ignore the gaps in the shapes, the game has a little bug where no matter what I do (with a weird exception of an even weirder bug), belts rated for 14 items/sec don't want to go over 12 items/sec, even if the belt is fully loaded, and I'm just trashing the items. it causes weird issues.

      Joseph SJoseph S3 kuukautta sitten
    • @Catriel Marignac Lionti Not really, its easier to cut and merge things than to bring over 32 belts for a single shape.

    • @erSlippers There were two logic systems before wires, to my knowledge. First there was flow, where when a belt is transporting items or not is if it's 1 or 0 and you did logic by seeing if lines would back up and overflow (a feature of storages) when you tried stacking two lines. It was pretty bulky. The second was LR, where if the shape on a belt was a left or right half (or sometimes quads) told you if the signal was 1 or 0. And the benefit of using those shapes is that cutters could separate them onto different lines, and you didn't need a full belt's size array of stacker to do logic like that.
