Re: Friday Facts #356 - Blueprint library for real

This is awesome! I'm so glad you decided to share the story with us, it's good to hear things are getting better.

(I still want landfill to be something you can put in a blueprint, though)

Re: Add an initially unlocked research

The image link is broken. If you're using Imgur for example, make sure you use the direct link that has the .png or some such in it. I can see the image. But I'll tell you what it is, it's just a picture of a red science pack research (it looks like it's actually just military with red scribbled on...

Re: Notes to all items

An always present note might be a little overbearing, but an optional "help" section in the pause menu would be nice, if it allowed you to basically see the crafting inventory except clicking on something just brings up the explanation/note/hint/whatever. I think it's pretty clear to see m...

Re: Add an initially unlocked research

I did always found it confusing when first starting out how there isn't one overarching tech tree that ties everything together. I don't think there needs to be an actual research tying them all together (at least, not a visible one), because that could also look confusing to new players who might t...

Re: Reorder fluids, barrels and oil recipes

Wow, I'm surprised I'd never noticed these. I guess I don't use barrels or fluid signals very often. The most noticable in normal gameplay I'd say is definitely the sulfuric acid being at the top left. Especially since sulfuric acid isn't unlocked until after basic oil processing, which means a craf...

Re: Factorio Paper Cuts

Far worse than the deconstruction planners having curved and straight rails, it also has twenty tree variants, and four rock variants. I usually keep a deconstruction planner that does the "destroy all trees and rocks" thing, but also cliffs. But I can't just add cliffs, I need to add all ...

Re: Achievements don't "withstand" Updates

Are the achievements gone just on steam or in-game as well? This sounds like a natural result of turning off cloud saves.

Re: [0.18.27] Transport belt icon is off-color

Why does it have an almost copper-like color to it? Rust from exposure to moisture? The item is probably optimized to be displayed with dark background as in the inventory, hence it is brighter. The entity, on the other hand, has to look good in contrast against a variety of different natural groun...

Re: Add a tooltip for Peaceful Mode

Expansion is not disabled; I just tested in a sandbox at 16x speed. Doubting myself, I ran another test and found the bases did not send out colonists but each colony did get larger. e.g., what started out as a single spawner structure will grow to 2 structures in close proximity, etc. I just ran a...

Huh, looks like you're right. I've edited the post, and I guess I'll update the wiki too. (the fact that this isn't stated anywhere in the game just shows my point, though)

Re: Ctrl click temporary waypoints for trains

I had no idea this feature existed. I don't think enough players do the mini-tutorials to rely on it, besides even if you could assume every player did them there should still probably be some indicator in normal gameplay (not that I'm inventive enough to think of a sleek way to indicate that. Perha...

Add a tooltip for Peaceful Mode

When creating a new map, under the enemy tab every other setting has a little tooltip next to it you can hover over for more explanation, except for "Peaceful mode", which I would argue needs the most explaining. I think the way the wiki says it would be just about perfect: "When peac...

Re: Visual bug with items on belts

Both the top left curves in the examples you gave also had items that were below both items on either side. Can't quite tell, but I think the direction of the belts is reversed in the image you gave? This doesn't appear to change it, as in both cases it occurred. I see it's too minor to be a priorit...
