Yeah, I always seem to get stuck on oil, everything goes smoothly until then. Finding good blueprints helps though.

One of the challenges with oil in factorio, is that it is the first (and possibly, ONLY) resource which produces multiple items. i.e. IIRC you put water and raw oil into a refinery to get light oil, heavy oil (and possibly one more thing). The problem is that you likely only need one thing. But if you do not drain out ALL the other created resources, the refinery won't work.

One very, *very* early-game cheesy idea, is to pump all the extra material into a liquid storage tank. When its full, just pick it up into your inventory. Place it back down again, but the contents will be empty! Sure, you lose all that material, and I won't recommend this long-term. But its a useful stop-gap measure.

Yeah, helps you learn ratios but really annoying when you forget one small thing and after working for 10 minutes, it suddenly stops.
I usually convert them to solid fuel cubes but at some point I still have too many of those. And then the fun part of the game, when you figure out how to balance them and things work :D

That reminds me! Those solid cubes? You can use them as furnace fuel. It's one way to get rid of them.

After Yoyogi Park, I got through the Amala Temple sequence as well. I really love the scenery in this area :). Not too much to say about that. Then I tackled some more of the optional bosses, before going to do the 3rd Kalpa. This was...a little bit annoying, with the whole Raidou chase sequences, but it's not too difficult once you cotton on to using the split paths to lure him down one side and run down the other.
