Double Speed Belts


–°hanging speed of belts. Every next belt tier has twice higher speed than tier before. Now splitter splits one blue belt to two red belts.

b [Fixed] Speed issues (Bob's Logistics and Miniloader)

Your edit of the Basic Belt gives it 10.61 items/sec, apparently? https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/656460872222375936/683243384126570507/20200229022505_1.jpg

And none of the miniloaders after Fast are right. Basic, Normal, and Fast all have the right speed, but Express, Turbo, and Ultimate have the normal speed they would without this mod. Going by what appears to be Therax adding an entry in their desc for the speed they have. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/656460872222375936/683243264941621258/20200229022434_1.jpg

And they were working before, so no idea what happened.

The description by miniloaders is not right, the speed was actually changed, but not description.

Hi, I just saw this issue, I checked miniloaders speed, right after this last update.
I dont know if this is just the description or the actual speed, but miniloader doesn't change its speed from basic miniloader, both have 15 items/s

I need to check, thanks.

The main problem is that they are not loaders, but inserters.

In vanilla 0.18 are new prototypes 1x1-loaders and they can be used as normal loaders. But you need to wait for high speed and for train support.

Cool, thanks

Ok, kind of the opposite, now miniloaders have half the speed of the belts

1 year, 1 day ago

well, now I put base belt speed to 7.5, and for some reason the progession goes 7.5, 15, 21.21, 30, 42.43, 60

also, miniloaders speeds dont fit belt speeds, they always start in 7.5, but I guess that's intended

I'm tested with such setup:

As you can see, the miniloaders unload the infinity chest to the express belt and it gives (150/10) items per second.

What is base belt speed that you have changed?

1 year, 1 day ago

belt speed per tier, sorry

a year ago

This mod hasn't speed_per_tier, but base_speed 15 and every next level will be twice faster as before.
If you see that the speed of something is not good, please send me the screenshot of your problem or the save game file. Probably the problem comes from another mod incompatibility.

ok, thanks, I ended up setting it to 15, and it works just fine

hi, somehow the loaders from loader redux & bobs logistic dont work fine with this.
the loader is way to slow for the belts..

i took a min to figure out a test:

the tooltip say its fine (240/ultimate belt), but 2 loader feed 1 belt quite easy
Edit: just happens on ultimate loader with 240 speed, all other loaders work like the belts.

Just Loader Redux and Bob's Logistics mod and this one?

There is no ultimate loader:

So, the prototype is correct, it's bug of vanilla.

data.raw.loader["purple-loader"].speed = 0.25
data.raw.loader["green-loader"].speed = 0.5

well, its SHOWN that it has the same speed as the belt
- its just not working with the same speed.

I think if the proto would be incorrect, it would show a different speed...
AND: its working fine without your mod with 75 items /s

Here was a problem with loaders 1x1: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=81447
Maybe the same problem, but with normal loaders.

You can see that internal they are also 240 items per second:



0.5 is actually 240 items per second.

(updated 10 months ago)

so you say its a limitation of the game in its state right now...

wont it be nice to consider a limit for the speed for your mod then - i.e 200items / s when having loader-mods installed?
(or an option to do so)

created another bug report, since the other was referring to miniloaders and no update since then:
