Re: Version 0.17.36

Is there any way to automatically update the dedicated server?

I've probably downloaded it 20-30 times by now, just for 0.17.

Re: Version 0.17.23

There may be a great reason, but unfortunately this means the game I was playing with some friends is stuck on .22, with the power pole crash.

I don't suppose there's any chance we could get a .22.5, which just fixes that bug but doesn't break the rest of the game?

Re: Version 0.17.23

The (BobAngels-modded) dedicated server now segfaults on startup. No backtrace printed.

Re: Download CAPTCHA prevents automated downloads

The purpose of this is to make Factorio possible to install on NixOS. It has to be automated; the package builder (by design) doesn't allow interactive actions, and the license obviously doesn't allow redistribution. Previously we've been able to get away with a login script using curl, but that fal...

[0.16.28] Low MP UPS, high SP UPS for same save

In short, I have a game we've been working on for a few weeks, approaching megabase proportions, but where the practical UPS limit has recently dropped to ~30 in multiplayer while the same save runs at 70 UPS if loaded in singleplayer. I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but I don't recall it bein...

Desyncs seemingly triggered by latency

We've been playing a multiplayer game for a few weeks, with regular (and increasing) frequency of desyncs. At all times, it seems it's the laggiest player that desyncs. Restarting the server sometimes helps for a while, but often not. Sometimes we go hours without a desync; sometimes we get five in ...

Re: [MOD 0.13.17+] Rampant - 0.16.22

Hi, We're two weeks into a game combining Rampant, Nauvis Day and Endgame Combat, and by now the biters seem to have maxed out. We're still in early-midgame -- no logistics system, just player delivery and construction bots -- but evolution is sitting around 95-97% and all I ever see are the highest...

[0.16.22] Modded lamps with extra large radius fail to rende

For example, the Yuoki Railways' modern street lamp. This has a lighting radius larger than the maximum zoom-out distance. If I walk away from it, especially if not zoomed fully out, the lamp will apparently be culled (?) from rendering while the visible area still should be lit by it, causing the t...

Re: mixing fuel on belt

You can easily do this using a circuit and merging lanes, set to allow the low-priority fuel through only if there's nothing else on the belt.

As of 0.16, you can also do this with a splitter at to input prioritization mode.

And you didn't program eternal charging on purpose.

Don't be silly; this was a bug, by all accepted definitions of the term except entomological. "Working as designed", perhaps, but still a bug.

Re: [0.15.11] macOS game is low-resolution on retina displays

Well, yeah. This bug should still be open. If I were to make a suggestion, the devs should: - Add that key to the application manifest, so we don't need to. - Rescale the UI to fit the display's actual DPI, without users needing to drag the handle. Scaling already works fine, you just need to do it ...

Re: [MOD 0.13.17+] Rampant - 0.15.15

The specific case I'm thinking of is a dedicated server, where the server may be up long before anyone logs on. If someone does log on (or for single-player)... I guess the ideal UI would be a progress bar, with the game otherwise frozen? I don't think it'd make much of a difference, though. And I'd...

Re: [0.15.x] Running Factorio makes XFCE window-dragging laggy

Disabling the compositor doesn't fix the second problem, though: Namely, resizing the window makes Factorio lag out and sometimes (appear to) freeze. That is, specifically dragging the side of the window to resize it. Using any of xfce's snapping features, or maximize/windowed fullscreen, it resizes...

That's what I figured. It's a pity; it'd be a really useful feature. Actually... Before I dive into writing a dynmap -like mod (using an external server), do you know if it's possible for mods to write arbitrary binary data to <some file>? It's fine if that's limited to a single directory, or even a...
