Coloured Outline for Spidertron on Map

TL;DR Coordinate Spidertron's map icon colour with Spidertron's remote colour instead of default red outline. What ? The outline of Spidertron is always red, yet Spidertrons can be recoloured to match their remote control. I think their outline on the map should correspond with their remote control...

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

I like the concept of polluted water but that's a very rich green and my first thought is that it was a very healthy algae, thriving with life (this sounds like the opposite of polluted and uninhabitable but I did since read that algae can thrive on some chemicals pollutants), but I also thought the...

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

The (old) beacon to me is an extremely powerful machine, like a giant transformer or server farm (or both). It reminded me of the ending of The Chaos Engine, with a mass of pipes and wires and heavy duty components. The new beacon design does a great job of capturing the presence of electrical and c...

No recipe found for "spidertr", does this mean the search function doesn't do wildcards or partial words?

Re: Version 0.18.7

Just before 0.18 came out I was thinking how far the rest of the game had progressed, and how the audio could do with some overhauling... my favourite bit has been how the sounds are more audible when zoomed out, because I spend a lot of time like that and it was lonely in a silent environment. The ...

Crash when updating game [0.17.54]

My spare PC has Factorio [0.17.54] installed via the zip package installed from the Factorio website (it has been updated several times throughout 0.17) and crashed either during update to [0.17.66], or when rebooting the game afterwards. It's not repeatable with exact conditions, since it is up to ...

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

There's only so many tips a brand new player can absorb right at the beginning, I find I understand them better when I have some context to apply them to in order to remember them, and I get the context through playing. So having tips spaced out as the game progresses would help, as technologies are...

To address the issue of heavy/light/petro backing up and blocking production, rather than scrapping basic oil production as we know it there could be a yellow flashing :!: at the bottom to indicate an issue, like when trains run out of fuel or robots have no free chests to deliver to.

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

Although I personally keep my rails straight and charge through cliffs and trees, having a modifier key to allow obstacle avoidance will be good for other players, and the game as a whole. Illuminating beams look great, when the first dark beams came out I was hoping illuminating beams would follow!...

Re: Version 0.17.17

With regards to copper wires merging with blueprints, depending on what you're building you may be able to get away with a blueprint that uses medium power poles on one side and substations on the other side, the power area covers all the buildings but they are too far apart to connect automatically...

I tried to create a 3rd team in a PvP scenario in-game with commands * which did work according to a team-counting command ** , but it did not register on the Teams or Admin menu in the top left. Using commands to make a player join the team did also not work. *** Creating team * /...

Re: [Klonan] [0.17.3] Crash when loading 0.16 vanilla PvP

I can confirm your modified save works in 0.17.8 for me, glad we could get to the bottom of it and fix for the next release.

Many thanks to you and the team for the effort you've been putting in :D

Re: [Klonan] [0.17.3] Crash when loading 0.16 vanilla PvP

I'm still getting a crash a few seconds after loading a PvP scenario from 0.16 in 0.17.7, either as a hosted multiplayer game or in singleplayer. To reproduce, load save file (Jimandy016a.zip) attached to first post, and LMB click Confirm when prompted about migrations. It then crashes, as seen in a...

[Klonan] [0.17.3] Crash when loading 0.16 vanilla PvP

When loading a PvP save from 0.16 I get a crash when rocket launch events happen, browsing options or starting round. I don't suppose it's the same as this, as mine crashes in 0.17.3 vanilla whilst loading a 0.16 vanilla save. This bug report is about mods in PvP: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtop...
