Re: [kovarex] [0.17.45] Strange train behavior, cargo wagon killer

I would love to see this highlighted in a Friday Facts. Pretty funny and unexpected bug. I definitely got a solid chuckle out of it.

Re: Beacon on/off via circuit network

I just wanted to add a vote to this suggestion. Ever since the change was made to make beacons consume power even when their modules were removed there is no easy way to disable beacons without disconnecting power from an entire factory block. One use case could be to only enable speed module beacon...

Re: LF for another realistic power mod

I would love to see a slower response from steam engines as well. It would give you a reason to build accumulators even when you do not use solar to handle that "peak" demand while steam engines spin up. The steam turbines should have an even slower demand response. There are mods (not sure if they ...

Re: Is there a way to limit which trains go to which depot?

I just dug through the control.lua on Github to see if min/max length could be added to depots, but this solves my problem exactly. Could a note (or a bigger one if I missed it) be added to the Description & Information post?

Re: Belt buffer device

This idea is really similar to the loaders https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-128. They decided against the idea, but left the mechanics in the core game for mods to enable.

Re: Rail world disables achievements

The rail world preset disabled biter expansion, so that could be seen as a significant advantage for some of the achievements.

Re: [15.37] Manually driven trains do not reserve blocks

The reasoning behind this decision is that the game does not know, and does not want to assume where you are planning on going, you can choose to turn at a crossing at any time, so the game could either reserve all paths you could possibly take (potentially causing any other automatic trains anywher...

Re: Friday Facts #213 - The little things 2

I love the requester changes, and its something that been asked for for quite some time, but it might seem inconsistent to a player that does not know why performing the same action results in different values being set (E.g. if a row of assembly machines are mixed types of have different modules in...

Re: Clarify that Optional dependencies really are Optional

I personally think that looks much better, and gives the end user plenty of information. With the separated areas you could also drop the leading "?" on the optional dependencies.

Re: Load Balncing Proxy for Servers

I haven't messed with multiplayer factorio in a while, but the game is still deterministic, meaning all actions need to happen on all servers and clients. What would this solve?

It may be a rounding issue since it says the pump only has 199 fluid in it.

Re: [0.15.14-15] Beacons consume power with no modules

But the ability to remove modules from a beacon (say with inserters) to reduce power consumption IS a feature that has been lost now. An alternative could be to finally allow connecting beacons to the circuit network.

Re: 1 red underground costs 40 gear wheels

This is intentional. Since red and blue under ground belts now reach farther than they did before, they had to have their costs increased to remain "more expensive" than their yellow counter parts. I also don't see the need to get 40 gears into the assembler "within 0.5 seconds". Ever heard about s...

agree because you have the electric furnace, so why not an electric boiler as well... => which will result in an infinite loop of power? so *offshore-pumps would need to require energy, which is another point...
