Re: Friday Facts #168 - Nightvision Nightmare

PS I would like to enquire about this line in the FF168

"there exists a single python script for creating sprite sheets."

Is this available to MODers?
and if so
Where can I get it?

Re: Friday Facts #166 - Combat Revisit

"Along with weapon rebalance I think biters bases also must be changed." "There are connected topics." "fighting against biter bases is slightly boring now as their behavior is not changing from battle to battle." Agree with this. IMO the biters themselves are the key to the combat solution. 1. For...

Re: Friday Facts #166 - Combat Revisit

I start my games with Enemy Bases set to Very High freq. + Very big size, with very small starting area. I love the feeling of imminent danger and I feel cozy in my "castle". I think the feeling of imminent danger is a great element for a game to have and I really hope the Wube can balance it right...

Re: Friday Facts #166 - Combat Revisit

I definitely agree, giving the player a choice to enter combat mode that is easier to control/micro combat and gives more feedback, would be beneficial to the combat aspect of Factorio, it would also somewhat nerf the "Turret Creep" problem, as the player would have to take the gamble of exiting co...

Re: Friday Facts #166 - Combat Revisit

I am very glad that you have decided to pay some much-needed attention to the combat in Factorio :) While I agree that the default Factorio Combat can be lack-luster at times, it is definitely fun at times and given the right modifications can remain fun throughout the game. Combat in Factorio (for ...

Re: [MOD 0.14] Warehousing v0.0.11

If I may ask, what was the rationale for giving Storage Warehouses 250% more slots than other warehouses? From what I've seen, it just causes everyone I see to use them in place of normal and passive provider warehouses. This invariably causes my OCD to go absolutely bonkers. Particularly when othe...

Re: Friday facts #158 - The end of the 32 bit era

PS this may or may not apply to Mac users as I have never tried it on Mac The Mac version of Factorio has been 64-bit only since 0.12.21 (January 2016) when support for OS X 10.6 was dropped. OS X 10.7 and newer are all 64-bit only operating systems. All righty then, you learn something new every d...

Tell me, of all the people complaining of this announcement how many are actually running solely on 32 bit?

Re: Minimum Requirements for Headless server

The old Q6600 still has a lot of power really and I am pretty sure that it would be ample for the task q6600 is quite good for factorio. I replaced mine about half a year ago and before that I was playing heavily modded factorio with relatively big bases on the CPU just fine. I have 2 sitting behin...

Re: Minimum Requirements for Headless server

Yeah, sorry, maybe was not clear. I have a bunch of AWS servers (mostly web hosts), and was interested in specifically how the "CPU Credit Balance" stat on a T2.micro node looks like after a long play session as not had the opportunity to test anything much (and well out of free tier), e.g.: aws_cp...

Re: Minimum Requirements for Headless server

Hey, What does the AWS CPU Credit usage look like after a few hours of play and a decent coop base? Is it stable or would itrun to zero if played a long session? That was my other concern since the base performance is a lot slower on t2. When you sign up, you get 700 hours per month for the first y...

Re: [HanziQ] Crash Report v0.14.7 - Building Rail Track over Fire

I now don't think that this crash is exclusive to fire. I had an almost identical crash when I placed tracks near smoke particles. I am also absolutely sure that this crash had nothing to do with any MODs or timed events as I loaded the save up and let it run all day, and when I came back it was sti...

Re: [MOD 0.13] Warehousing v0.0.10

Haven't done extensive testing yet, but if you change the "factorio version" from 13 to 14, it seems to run fine. I haven't looked yet in-depth with what's changed between 13 and 14 to see if anything needs to be changed, but until the mod is updated this seems to work okay. :) Can Confirm this. Ju...
