Re: [POLL] Left- or Right- hand rails and roads?

Where I live, there is no proscribed side of the road. Got to cover all the options! :D LHD here, I really don't think I could get my head around a RHD layout for some reason! Too set in my ways maybe. RHT is used in 165 countries and territories, with the remaining 75 countries and territories usi...

Re: "Cannot reach" on 2/3rds of the public servers with more than one person in it

On top of that, today I tried to connect to an online game but the game doesn't show up on the list for me, alphabetically or with filtering. I know the game is up, because I'm watching people I know play on it on Twitch right now. So clearly something is going wrong there. I don't know if these ar...

Non Blocking Saving

Might it be possible to expand the non blocking feature so that it is also used when players join a server? Using this feature (which I have not had an issue with to date) Really highlights the pauses that happen when players join the server. Be a nice additional step to give a little more uninterru...

Re: auto drag roboport

Blueprinting is useless early game, due to the speed of the bots, it's actually slower to use BP's until you get worker robot speed researched X times. I get that using a BP would mark the places, but again doing that would be even slower. So for me there is no solution here. I want to also point ou...

Re: Radar range

Small tip, if you check the minimap with a radar in hand (assuming you are standing close to an already placed radar) Then the minimap will show the range of the radars - allowing you to align them neatly without coverage gaps.

Too bad you didn't also "fix" that trains waiting at signals can accumulate infinite penalties.
A simple cap on the waiting penalty would make trains path into stackers a lot more reliable.

When you set Rows Before Scrolling to 10 the scroll bar moves from its default position. Small bug - as setting it to 9 is basically the same!

Expand Power Poles click-drag functionality to Roboports

Laying rows of power poles, underground belts and underground pipes is easy and fast with the click drag system, could this also be added to Roboports so they too also align up area wise? I have no idea on how easy it would be to implement.. Would be a nice addition though, for example when laying t...

I can not stress enough how totally awesome this MOD is. It works just like a builders laser line and helps you align anything easily. www.png This MOD deals with the whole gamer OCD thing so perfectly, and in my humble opinion really deserves to be included in vanilla in some way. It really is one ...
