Re: Alt-F4 #12 - Reverse Engineering the Spider

the spidertron is fun.. but how do i get it away from the mouse without reloading the page? :)

Clicking on any link (f.e. to the forum) was challenging , had to wait that spidertron moves over the button (and i had it at the top of page) and then the mouse changed so i could click the link.

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

FFF .. finally one again. God i missed it.

Changes sound great, especially the train. Everything that makes trains in vanilla less annoying i welcome. I use LTN (and like it) most of the time but everything that is vanilla is always better then mods.

Re: I want to play factorio but I lack a goal

I found it useful to have a Factorio pause. The need to build something came by itself. I heard also trying multiplayer might be useful. 8-) jep ... after Multiplayer with wife, reaching 5k+ science per minute we stopped, as frames went down to 30... didn't play last half year. I started now alone ...

Re: Killing nest are becoming annoying - Strategy to play?

problem with base game: radar has way too small visible area for artillery.

In one of my 0.17/18 maps with biter expansion i came to the point, where i needed 1h to clear them with modded radar and nuclear artillery (firing nuclear bombs) on one side of the base.

Re: Friday Facts #358 - Alien decoratives & Polluted water

have to agree, polluted water is awesome but the colour not. On first view i thought "odd that in the barren is so much grass"´.

i think polluted water should either have some debris or that "foam-ish" look, with a bit more brown/oily tint.

Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

Better than sauron invasion. New beacons are nice. Beacons have no visual significance for me. I need them for better factory but I don't need to see them. They provide no important information in general. The new one fulfille this. I take everything that needs less pc power. Getting to limit with 6...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

don't like it, sorry. At least not as beacon. A beacon is a transmitter and not something that looks like an electrical converter or weapon. Looks also way to futuristic compared to the other DIY looking buildings (which i like). And waaay to eye-catching. For mega factories beacon are a must have, ...

Re: Speaking of playing the game the way you want ...

Allowing players to build canals is an too-easy defence against biters in default game: they cannot pass through and would allow to build undestroyable defences, if you build the canal far out so that no spitter can attack anything of value. Well, what I meant was specifically landfill - i.e. land ...

Kinda agree, the wording could have been better.

If he is still searching for a job he might want to shoot m...

Re: Chunk-aligned modular railway system with LTN Stations

Does anyone else have an issue where one corner of the bulk loaders/unloaders belts doesn't get built because it overlaps with the track hitbox? Yes, as the curved track was made 1 tile bigger in 0.17 . You need to change the belts and off-set one underground further out... looks stupid, but no oth...

jep, there was a roboport connected (station is a universal requester for main base and requests a lot of stuff) and the iron wheels are at the moment always in minus.
