Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Why is the inserter chasing items pointlessly at all? Why can't the inserter compute the time and location where it would catch up to the item and see that the location is outside of its reach. It can then go for the next item right from the start. Imagine two inserters on different power networks ...

Re: [0.17.4] Usability issues with game.tick_paused

Thanks for the report. The fix so most of these is to prevent them from working at all in the paused state - since while paused non-map-editor players are not meant to be able to do anything except talk, switch to/from the editor, or disconnect. If that's the plan, would it be possible to get a new...

[0.17.25] tick_paused causes the inventory to not show when setting recipes

If you have an assembler open on a recipe, and you change the recipe, you get this: https://i.imgur.com/wBw44xZ.png However, if you set the recipe with game.tick_paused=true, you get this: https://i.imgur.com/d5kbkAS.png The behaviour is 100% consistent, you always get the first result normally and ...

[0.17] Global hotbars - Decouple hotbars from specific saves

The new hotbar has a couple of downsides: - Filters have to be set straight away on a new save or you end up checking your inventory (burner mining, stone furnace, etc.) - Filters do not carry over between saves, making it harder to remember what you put where Both of these would be solved with a gl...

[0.17.4] Hand cursor prevents depositing some items back after picking up the stack

If you want to deposit more than half a stack of items, you would normally take the entire stack and right-click to place some back. However, this is prevented by the hand cursor slot system. This is most noticeable on weapon ammo slots, as you would otherwise need a full inventory. If I have 25 amm...

[0.17.4] Usability issues with game.tick_paused

The new tick_paused option is great, but for the purposes of creating TAS runs, it has a few issues when active (with ticks_to_run set to 0): - The god controller cannot move normally (can still move via zoom in/out) - Entities cannot be opened, but can be closed; this includes the player's own inve...

[0.17.2] Re-add the pickaxe slot, but purely for showing your mining speed.

Right now there's no way to check what your current mining speed is, without directly measuring the time it takes to mine basic ores (1/s at base, 2/s with steel). The pickaxe slot could be re-added with the relevant 0.16 tool shown as in that slot, and mousing over it could show your mining speed (...

Re: Logistic Science only Technologies

What happens late-game when you only have infinite tech left? Do you maintain it as-is, and have this weird state where some tech in the middle arbitrarily excludes the first two packs? Do you not use the first two packs, making that part of the base effectively useless? Do you make it vary by recip...

Re: Advanced Nuclear fuel reprocessing

It should be possible to implement this as a mod, as the recipes themselves are pretty simple and the only real addition is plutonium as a pure intermediate item. Based on a search for "enrichment", this actually seems to be a convenient hole in the market if you want to capitalise on it. I don't th...

Re: [0.16.51] Refinery can't be loaded with iserters

This is likely related to the problem I had with furnace-type assemblers outputting a fluid backing up and sending the inserter to sleep, but not waking it back up.

1. An option to mark an image as hidden Would be useful for images intended to be used as the preview in lists, as well as for #3 below. 2. An option to mark an image as pixel-perfect (or non-scaling) Would make smaller images look far better, as the scaling can often completely ruin an image. 3. So...

Re: Productivity modules boundaries

If I'm not mistaken, the current productivity limitations are that you can use them on anything in intermediates except barrels and enrichment, the latter of which is fixed for 0.17 as it was a catalyst issue.

Smaller and more informative achievement pins

Right now the pins are a massive icon, sometimes with a progress bar, and that's it.
It'd be a lot nicer if the pins had the name, description, and a smaller icon.

Here's a quick mock-up of my idea:

Re: Removing fluid temperature - thoughts?

How will this affect steam engines and turbines? Currently turbines only draw double the steam but produce far more power due to the vastly increased temperature, and engines attempting to use that 500C steam will be inefficient. My assumption is that the output rate of exchangers and input rate of ...

you say it makes sense, and that it is logical, but then you have to think about... what constitutes a junction merge? 1 pipe section between 2 junctions? Those Underground junctions would count as 2 pipes between them, so do you limit it to 2 pipes between junctions to merge them? Maximum 2 non-ju...
