Excavators are REALLY fun and useful. Much more than the skidsteer. Combine it with a truck and you'll be moving mountains soon.
Transferring between vehicles is very easy. I find that usually I have to get the bucket directly over the bed of the truck before I get the green outline indicating to unload (right click). I'm not sure, but orienting the bucket so it actually looks like it's dumping over the truck might make it easier to get the outline.
BTW, if you're digging near the building that needs the resources, you can just select the excavator as a linked stockpile and it will pull whatever it needs out of your bucket automatically. Handy if you build your smelters directly near the iron mine.
Networking adapter or driver can prevent Eco-server being public!
(this may also be an interesting find for SLG to keep in mind)
Very top on this topic I described how I set up my machine for a public ECO-Server without any problem and even without explicit port forwarding. The server was running over 3 weeks and had nearly 100 players.
(Quote ECO wiki)
As I now tried a second (little older) machine to install an Eco-server, it didn't work. I had lots of work and tinkering, compared the system services and settings – nothing worked - finally I installed another networking card in a free Pci slot and surprise: NOW IT WORKED!
The onboard networking adapter is a NVIDIA nforce chipset RTL8211CL, the motherboard is GA M68M-2SP.
The bypass is now a PCI Adapter with RTL 81695C
Its basic content is, repair or replace crankshaft, connecting rod, cylinder liner, valve seat and valve duct. Repair of eccentric bearings; replacement of plunger pairs, oil delivery valve pairs and needle valve pair. Repair welding oil pipe and joints; repair water pump, governor, remove water scale scale; inspect, repair, adjust lines, instruments, charging generators and starter motors in the power supply system; install, inspect, test, adjust each system, and load test.
For those who are facing the same issue, there is one work around. In the store you can also use the modifier keys (ctrl, shit, alt) which will allow you to change the stride size of one click. One of them is 0.1 so prices with one digit after the decimal point become possible.
