Train stop names ticked by default would be a nice change as well…the whole point of a blueprint is to save and stamp else where on the map or save for a different map keeping the stop names…please put train stop names on by default

Often times you want to set some constant number, like "I want 7.5 stacks here", and doing the calculation MANUALLY is of course unacceptable.
It is your first time playing Factorio, you have just unlocked a new item, let's say cliff explosives. You want to create five stacks of them to play around with. How many cliff explosives is that?

It's interesting to know about the new lamp color system: how is the color adjusted and has the ability to create massive lamp circuits been compromised for the sake of increased color customization?

The train stop name being ticked by default happens if you don't hold shift while copying. Copy -> drop on your inventory, then right click the blue print to edit it. The train stop name will be checked by default.

If you hold shift to edit the blueprint as you create it, it's unchecked.

We have already been shown so many changes in Factorio 2.0 that I doubt the compatibility of the new version with saves 1.1 and other older ones

Awesome being able to move tags around easily! https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/blog-sy ... diting.mp4
But the code should probably take into account the offset between the cursor and the middle of the icon, to avoid the snap-to-center teleportation, which would make small adjustments easier and less annoying.

The e-mail link is broken, leads to wrong fff, 387 instead of 388.

Looking at the last screen another QOL improvement for Deconstruction Planner would be to allow a free shape to be dragged, similar to Autocad where when selecting you can click and select a rectangular area or click and hold the button to draw a free shape with your mouse for selection.

Can I actually do this? Instead of just doing math (10*100), or typing 10k, can I do like "10s" and get 10 stacks? S for Stacks?

No, you can't make Disco Lamps

Lamps don't have "color from RGB values"

Modding it in would be pretty simple though

I feel like cliff removal should be super force building only, and no longer in regular force building. It is quite annoying to have to unmark cliffs from decon when building defenses that incorporate cliffs. Not to mention you need to be mindful enough to disable your roboport or remove Cliff Explosives from your Inventory BEFORE building, or the Cliffs are gone forever.

For map colors it would awesome if https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Enhanced_Map_Colors would be copied to the game itself.

Can you Allow directory slash in save name when saving? (I've made a feature request for that)

Or will there be a proper save directory support in 2.0? (like a create directory button)
