Let Inserter not grab item when placing them.

Hi, the mod says, it's not a bug, it's an idea, so I write it here again. What: When I place an inserter, it grabs immediately an item. In my case, often it's a wrong one and I have to delete the inserter to get rid of the wrong item. Solution: Let the inserter not grab immediately things. OR: let m...

Orgasm: crushed stone -> mineral sludge. Use it for special ores or anything?

Hi, well, I went to hell with all that crushed stone, there was so much I didn't know where to put it in. Felt like a mayor who declines to get a nuclear waste area down the earth: "Not at my place, guys!" Then I found out about Mineral Sludge - uuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh babyyyyyyyyyyyy yeeeeessss...

Re: I am stuck with chaotic inventory. How do you play this game?

Ok, the first phrase is also my approach. I didn't find it useful, some furnaces are already full of coal, or they accept Carbon only. I find myself spending too much time on running around to get trash out of my inventory. :-.(

Okay, I will have a deeper look into the quickbar. Thx :)

Products at place A, B, C. I wanna build sth -> run to A, B, C - is that part of gameplay?

Hi, having so many belts and product chains, I am wondering about this simple thing: isn't there a center, where all stuff can go to? And when I want to build an updated building, or anything else I need this, this and that, I just go to ONE place and pick it up to build it. Not to run to place A to...

I am stuck with chaotic inventory. How do you play this game?

Hi, when building belts I often find errors, I am a beginner, learning that game, which is fun! But when there are already items on the belt, I get them in my inventory. I don't like that. It's chaotic with ores, products, things I don't need and I get headache searching for stuff I actually really ...

Tighter GUI: smaller titles, smaller frames/bounding boxes

Hi, I'd like to suggest to make the main title fonts smaller (like "inventory") as well as the frames/ bounding boxes. Why: These windows are always in the center, hiding everything behind. As a beginner I often find myself re-looking again, what was needed in that building - oh wait but t...

Inserter: not grab item and let it fall when changing direction.

Hi, when I place an inserter, it automatically grabs items around, which might make sense. But for any newbies this becomes annoying: Placing in wrong direction (newbie!), inserter grabs already anything, now changing the direction lead inserter to let item fall on ground. Inserters are the main too...

Re: 1.0.0 (MAC) CPU or GPU causing bad performance?

Hi, yesterday I made four screenshots showing crowded base/ not crowded base/ train. The framerate is dropping everywhere but not like I would expect: always in crowded areas, far more less in just some-buildings-areas. https://abload.de/thumb/fpsbase2v7kli.jpg https://abload.de/thumb/fpsoustidenatu...

Hi, being a beginner, I am forced to open and close the inventory all the time. The learning process for every newbie. It would be a great help, if the Inventory/ the GUI is not popping up in the center always! I cannot see anymore whats behind. The window could be opened always in the upper/lower l...

Re: tech tree to remember last selection

+1

for me as a beginner the tech tree is overwhelming and often frustrating when I feel lost.
There is a search engine, yes, but do I have all names in my mind: no, like every beginner.
So it would be a huge help to me - and others too, sure - what Oscar wrote.

best

Re: Enable "F" keypress to work in interfaces too

+1

Adjusting an inserter the wrong way let it pick up immediately sth. if it's the wrong item it blocks the whole chain.
Till today I have to delete the inserter just to get rid of the item in his "hands".
Hovering and pressing F would be an intuitive solution, too.

Re: Enable "Q" keypress to work in interfaces too

I agree. I don't find the UI ideal. There are so many items and more times I repeat clicking on them.
If I understand the thread starter right with his photoshop example, this would be a really good feature to me too.

1.0.0 (MAC) CPU or GPU causing bad performance?

Hi, Factorio is smooth since 15-20h. On the next day, the performance in a certain area went down (science laboratories). After restarting the game, this area shifted to another place. Hm, why that? What happened? Now it seems there is an huge area around my not-yet-megabase (I am beginner and slow)...
