show different appearance to blacklist/whitelist icons in alt mode

TL;DR When using ALT mode, there's no visual distinction in the icon between a filter that's blacklisting or whitelisting the item. What ? There's no visual difference between a filter that's blacklisting vs a filter that's whitelisting. (attachment 1) I suggest either changing the blacklisting bac...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Can't say I'm a fan of the Splitter tweak coming up in the next patch. One can already build a similarly-functioning solution to the problem which the new splitter would address using circuits. I would think that a more powerful building block would trivialize the circuit building game.

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

This post seems to be more about the pros and cons of the logistic bots and the Logistic Network. If there were some decision about the system to be made in the future, I'd keep the construction bot mechanics the same and would not bother to defend the logistic bot. Construction bots don't really sh...

Re: [16.12] Passive Provider Chest provides before Storage Chest

Yes, I checked the 0.15 just to be sure, but this logic of selecting storages over providers always applied only to logistic robots not construction robots. I know the reason why it behaves as it behaves in logistics, but I'm not sure I remember the reason to make it work differently for constructi...

Re: [16.12] Passive Provider Chest provides before Storage Chest

Solid copy. Thanks for the clarification, then. Sorry to nitpick, but I just want to make sure this is not a bug. I looked at the wiki again and it doesn't specifically say this is the behavior of just the logistic bot, but it just says "bots" on the network. In fact, it says it's the log...

Re: [16.12] Passive Provider Chest provides before Storage Chest

That works the same in 0.15.40. NaB. With respect, I disagree about this being not a bug. Per the Factorio-hosted wiki: A requested item is first looked up in the active provider chests, then in the storage chests, then the passive provider chests. So, the active provider chests are emptied first, ...

[16.12] Passive Provider Chest provides before Storage Chest

1. What did you do? I placed a ghost of a yellow belt next to a Passive Provider Chest. The passive provider chest has yellow belts. There are storage chests with yellow belts as well but they are further away from the placed ghost. 2. What happened? A construction bot flew to the passive provider c...

Looking for help w/ getting There Is No Spoon in 0.15.9

I was wondering if anyone could give some pointers on getting a launch under 8 hours with the new science model. I know it's still being tweaked, but is anyone even getting close? I'm a pretty slow player so I'm wondering if this is even possible with the new tech tree.

Re: Please allow fresh blueprints to stack in inventory

Regarding the case of the full inventory, wouldn't just dropping it on the ground be a feasible solution, similar to cancelling a queued manual assembly task with a full inventory? Apologies if this was already requested. I did a quick search and didn't see a thread specifically requesting this sugg...
