Re: Mark/show missing ingredients of assemblers

The advantage is, that you don't have to open the assembler. Wouldn't it make sense to (optionally?) be consistent with what you can see in that case? That is, show all ingredient/result slots at all times under Contents in the tooltip, shaded (or not) in the same way, eg fully red for a missing in...

Re: Recomended settings for casual play style?

I like the idea of aliens randomly attacking, but I want less of them. Is there a slider that controls how many attack at once? First of all, let's get one thing straight, on behalf of biters everywhere. You crash-landed on their planet, you are the alien! :) Anyway, as Loewchen described, attacks ...

Re: When clicking on a train that is at a train stop, and choosing to add stop, highlight the current stop

When placing a new train at a train stop, you often want to include the current stop in the train schedule. Requesting a highlight or some other indication of the current stop the train is at in the list of stations. I agree with the premise of the suggestion and it sounds relatively simple, but I'...

Re: Smoother vehicle control suggestions [0.15]

I, as player, want the vehicle accelerate if I press the key that points into the general direction the vehicle points from the screen perspective, and stop if I press the key that goes in the opposite direction of the vehicle. I think the devil is in the details but my hunch is this wouldn't actua...

Re: [1.1.72] Multiplayer join fails when SRV request is caught by a CNAME record

So how should Factorio behave in each of these cases? In my testing on linux it didn't detect a SRV record for each of the zones. For zone1 and zone2 it tried to connect to 98.209.243.3:34197, for zone3-6 it failed with "$domain is not a valid address (Name or service not known)". The onl...

Re: [1.1.72] Multiplayer join fails when SRV request is caught by a CNAME record

Are the DNS records still up? Can't reproduce on linux. Could it be platform-specific? I can reproduce on 1.1.70 win64, using (a subdomain of) a domain under my control: $ORIGIN example. something IN A x.x.x.x *.something IN CNAME something ; no factorio.something IN CNAME record, which would cause...

Re: [1.1.72] Multiplayer join fails when SRV request is caught by a CNAME record

The expected behavior is: if the Factorio client makes a SRV request, and receives a response that does not contain any SRV records, then it should identify that the "DNS SRV lookup for [xyz] didn't return any usable records" and fall back to the default port 34197. Ideally, the recommend...

Re: Add pause / unpause console command

As an alternative; would it perhaps also work if, instead of a new command, when game.tick_paused is set, players *are* notified and it does *not* disable achievements? At present, "/c" always disables achievements, regardless of what you use it for (even nothing). That's easy to both und...

Re: why prod modules are important

My point was that if pollution is a concern, researching Mining productivity 2 or higher is a relatively long term answer: yes, better than productivity modules but (due to the resource cost) still a bad idea in the short term. Sorry, the part you bolded was a mistake; I meant due to the pollution ...

Re: Low FPS on PC without full use of CPU & RAM

Why do I have such a low FPS/UPS on an older computer? In terms of Factorio performance, I think the most relevant differences between the two systems are: 6MB vs 12MB CPU cache DDR3 vs DDR4 RAM 3.7GHz vs 4.3GHz CPU Turbo Boost As with most games, it is normal for Factorio to be unable to fully uti...

For clarity sake, you probably should say "rounded down to the nearest integer" That *hurts* my programmer brain because it's self contradicting... I get where you're coming from but I think it can be read as precise, not a contradiction: down tells you the rounded value must not be great...
