Complex flashing yellow

Post by Jamumools » Fri, 23. Nov 18, 10:51

Hi guys

I've been following Timsuptonothing's CLS2 guides for Sol space, first covering all of the ice and water, now moving into energy cells.

I noticed in one of the guides Tim mentions that his complexes don't flash yellow. Well mine do!! They're all switched off, but I can't figure out how to make them stop flashing. Any tips please?

Thanks

Give the complex enough of each resource to allow every station element to do their next production run (even if they are off and so won't actually start production) and the complex will stop flashing.

Hi Alan

Thanks for that - however the complex (2 cattle ranch plus complex kit) is full with 50,000 e cells. I tried putting 10,000 credits in, and also tried running it for a bit - both factories were producing and now I have about a hundred argnu beef!!

Any more ideas of what I've missed?

Complexes running on a shoestring budget can suffer cash flow problems where they will not make enough wares for the next step in the production chain and have enough energy cells left over to initiate it. I usually give new complexes 100-300k to get them going.
