Breaking Force upgrades and Tanks/Cars

Trains get a Breaking Force research upgrade to mirror the performance boost given with the better fuels. However, while these fuels work great in tanks/cars too, there's no matching change to breaking force for these. This gives a very different experience with acceleration vs breaking. I suggest t...

Re: [16.16] Splitter decompress still

Ditto - still happening on my 6-lane setup I originally posted in the other bug report.

See viewtopic.php?p=333224#p333224 and viewtopic.php?p=333233#p333233 for a test case with save.

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I do too, in general, prefer belts/trains for the bulk production areas of the base. However, they do allow simple and compact lower volume production (e.g. base building materials, player supplies) and wouldn't want to loose usefulness in this area. I did play one game, in 0.15, where I tried a 100...

[kovarex] [0.16.7] Multiple splitters can uncompress belts

Multiple splitters can uncompress belts. When everything is flowing at maximum output speed, small gaps form in the output belts, and brief pauses occur on the input belts. I couldn't reproduce it with a simple pair of belts and a single splitter, so needs to be more complex. Might be splitters dire...

Re: Version 0.16.7

Please reconsider removing multi-tank wagons. The previous implementation could be simplified - so it's simply an option between single large tank or 3 separate tanks, rather than the two separate 'tank connection' options that existed before. Less confusing for the user, but still gives flexibilit...

Re: Version 0.16.7

That fluid wagon split was useful, although the UI could have been better. Breaks some of my saves - e.g. 2-wagon train from refinery to main base had one wagon (3 tanks) of gas, then second wagon with 1 tank heavy oil and 2 tanks light oil. For a UI simplification, perhaps just have the option of o...

Re: [0.15.x] Stack sizes for new items not consistant

Just wanted to give this a bump while 0.16 is going through testing.

I note the nuclear reactor stack size has now been reduced, down to 10, but haven't seen anything else changed.

Re: [0.16.3] Invincible enemy bases/worms while artillary fires

I can see this being tricky to fix though, but one thing that would help a lot (and would be useful too) is a clear visual marker to show where an incoming shell is targetted. Yes - I know about the manual targetting marker. That is for manual fire only, and also vanishes around the time a shell is ...

[0.16.3] Invincible enemy bases/worms while artillary fires

Once an artillery shell fires at enemy bases/worms, it seems the game has decided that the shell will kill them, and they're impossible to attack with weapons (at least, destroyer drones + machine gun). How did this happen? I was manually clearing biter bases out of the area in range of a defensive ...

Re: [16.0] Crash on Open/first tick

Also seeing the same crash (same callstack) after loading my 0.15 game in 0.16.1. Runs for a second or so before crashing.

Quite a few mods in use - many manually patched up for 0.16 (missing icon_size mainly), but the callstack is the same so I'll not upload the saves+mods unless requested.

Re: Optimisation suggestion - Reduce UPS, uncouple FPS

The vast majority of things in the game don't "move" in the typical FPS/RTS sense. They have animation indexes and animation speeds which vary wildly between each frame. Additionally storing all of this information twice would increase RAM usage, slow the simulation speed down from cache misses whi...
