Re: How to reduce pollution of an assembling-machine with efficiency modules?

Does "pollution produced by all the player's machinery at every tick" mean the total sum of pollution units created by each polluter on the surface (then having negative pollutants anywhere would always reduce the total amount), or is the total pollution the sum of the pollution units per chunk (th...

Re: How to reduce pollution of an assembling-machine with efficiency modules?

Yes, you're right of course -- "doubling" the pollution isn't what it does, it just leaves you with twice the pollution (compared to the un-moduled variety). No, that's not technically correct, but this is nitpicking. Regardless of how you word it, we agree that half of a negative number is another...

Re: How to reduce pollution of an assembling-machine with efficiency modules?

Say I insert an efficiency-3 module into this. It will apply a factor of 0.5 to the base pollution. But 50 % of -45 is -22.5, so adding that module will double the pollution instead of reducing it. Can I work around this somehow? Strictly speaking this is not "doubling the pollution". If a machine'...

[Twinsen][1.1.12][Minor] Formatting for recipe temperatures

A few quibbles with the way tooltips work for recipes that have results which set fluid temperatures. 1. Recipes with multiple results are handled differently to a single result. For single-product results with a temperature, the temperature is appended to the recipe name in the header, regardless o...

Re: Steam banner photo unknown objects

You have a sharp eye. If you ask me they look like silo clamps. Edit: better picture I think that's right. They're at the same angles as the two different clamp animations (08-rocket-silo-arms-back and 08-rocket-silo-arms-right). Maybe left over from hiding parts of the rocket silo to get the rocke...

Re: Factorio quits without warning

You wrote that you have an app that postpones shutting down your PC because you did not notice the confirmation dialog. For this case there is specifically a a system API for that which is called "Sudden Termination". You can either support it or not. Factorio is not supporting it. Here is a link t...

Re: Factorio quits without warning

@Loewchen: I am satisfied with all of the shortcuts. But there is no shortcut setting for quitting the game. I know nothing about Macs except that they're overpriced, but the equivalent in Windows is Alt-F4. This is an OS feature, not a Factorio hotkey. You don't get a warning for it in Windows eit...

Re: Handling vanilla tips and tricks in mods?

Potential solutions, all with pros and cons: 1. Don't load base mod tips and tricks items or menu simulations if any other mod is present. Nuclear option. 2. Provide a "hidden" field or flag for tips-and-trick-item prototypes. Recipes and technologies have this property, and items have a similar opt...

Re: I need help with FPS stutter diagnosis

For me the biggest cause of FPS stutter was a result of the "Atlas texture size" setting in Factorio > Settings > Graphics. Having it set unnecessarily large is a lot worse than having it too small. I changed it to 4096 and have had constant 60 FPS ever since, even at 4K resolution with heavy mods. ...

Those are just words.
I'm aware of what words are and how language is co-constructed.

None of this cod-philosophy of language banter stops "retarded" from being a stupid and unnecessary thing to appear on screen in a family-friendly video game about trains and factories.

Handling vanilla tips and tricks in mods?

Factorio 1.1 introduced simulations. These are used for the main menu background and also for "tips and tricks". Simulations are essentially bottled game saves or blueprints with a bit of special handling for their runtime scripts. Because vanilla simulations are based only on the vanilla base mod, ...

Re: [1.0.0] Offensive Automatic Train Name

While I agree that this is not an appropriate name, I wonder for how long this name has been in the game. Because if the name has been accepted and integrated in the list 2 years ago, it would maybe be complicated to remove it now. Considering that name ingame is a reward and Wube always delivers w...

I would submit that someone willing to _actually_ sling insults at someone who is merely trying to discuss it is more of an issue.

Re: [1.0.0] Offensive Automatic Train Name

Currently we're going back and forth about slow hair. You know perfectly well that's almost certainly not what was meant. The way people can rationalise this shit away is the reason it's a problem. Randomly calling train stations in a computer game "Retarded" anything is no better than randomly cal...

Re: [1.0.0] Offensive Automatic Train Name

I have the impression that, on the contrary, the more privileged, the more people get easily offended. People who struggle to survive have other priorities than being offended I think. I think that's total bollocks personally. I think people who tell other people it's their fault if they're offende...

Re: color picker with alpha slider

Another example: It's currently only possible to get "real" black if you edit the blueprint directly. I think it should be possible to adjust that in the GUI too. asd.png But it looks absolutely awful. This is why setting the alpha was removed from player colour commands. The sprite layers simply a...

Order of rolling-stocks returned by LuaTrain properties?

LuaTrain has several useful ways of getting arrays of the entities that f...
