Re: [1.1.14] Train blocks itself in train limit

The problem with this is: Even though it has the "permission" to depart the train is still blocking access to the station so that no other train can enter it. Since the train-stop doesn't know about the train's schedule it cannot determine when or even if the train will finally depart so i...

Re: Version 1.1.15

Actually I do understand the need for the deconstruction-planner to be limited like that so that we can't filter for entities that we cannot see.
But couldn't we have a special case for an empty construction planner so we can at least order a "remove everything" into the darkness?

Re: [1.1.13] Train pathing past destination in wrong direction adds pathfinding penalty

This might be intended. A train stop usually denotes a place where a train does stop and not a through-line. And that status usually doesn't change with the direction of the train. However what might be interesting: Change the train stop penalties from static values to individual properties for each...

Re: Dragable Train signals

Which one? The one coming from the left fork or the one coming from the right fork or the one coming from the half-left fork (no, there is not straight)? Or to be more specific: How long is the block size supposed to be when dragging a signal to the right in this scenario? https://imgur.com/a/rJqrYM...

Re: Dragable Train signals

You actually can do that with blueprint and the relative grid positions.
You make your blueprint and then just drag-ride with a 289 km/h-train and a bunch of constructor-spiders following you around :)

Re: VR blueprints, modular vehicles and other

As for modular vehicles. It sounds a like the spidertrons. I do have a bunch of yellow "Rubble"s with construction bots and materials construction, a bunch of green "Rocky"s with just bots for recycling, and a blue "Chase", red "Marshall", pink "Skye"...

Thanks for the report, it is fixed for the next release now.
Will you make a quick hotfix for that or do we have to rollback to 1.1.8?

Re: Plastic production coal-starved??

Are you sure it's coal starving? My calculation gives an output of 17.03 plastic per second per assembler produced with just one inserter clearing it. That's not enough as one inserter can in the best case move 13.85 items per second from chest to belt. As for input...one assembler only takes 6.55 c...

Have you verified that they are really gone? It might be that they just got converted to 1.1.8 and are still there, just no longer loadable from 1.1.6. And by the way... Congratulations. You just found out why it is generally considered a bad idea to use an "experimental release" in a &quo...

Re: 1.1.7 Bug Report

To be more specific:
The second log shows that you tried to open a 1.1.7 save with the 1.1.6 game.
So the assumed "crash" might actually be a controlled (and correct) error message telling you that the savegame could not be loaded.

Re: 1.1.7 Bug Report

It seems that steam downgraded his version to 1.1.6 again after he installed (maybe manually bypassing steam?) and played 1.1.7.
1.1.6 then detects a savegame from a newer version.

The reason for that is that he isn't running the game online at all a...

They might have been connected together for a brief period of time. Just try deleting the water and see if it comes back. If yes, then you do have some kine of leak. If not everything is fine (for now)

Re: Server lag (Factorio Zone)

What's your friend's connection like? Since he has no lag he seems to run the game locally and you are connecting to his instance of the game. So when his connection is bad (or his whole family is watching Netflix) it doesn't matter anymore how good your own connection is. It's his upstream that mig...
