Re: Directional pipe placement

My personal worst example is "Oxygen not Included". I'm curious, that's a game I haven't played. If you have any coding experience I think it would be interesting to see a mod that implements your "drag and drop" behavior. It would probably be similar to FlowControl without havi...

Re: Peace with Aliens

He has probably assumed so due to the perspective of the developers—or at least Kovarex. Multiple different times the engineer has been presented as the sic. bad guy in quite clear terms. There is a plenty of articles about the subject. How depressingly cliched. Yes, see https://spieswl.github.io/b...

Re: Directional pipe placement

The fluid system is something, which needs to be completely rewritten, but then it will behave completely different than yet, or you let it as it is and live with the limitations. :) I don't really care about the fluid system itself; it's adequate. The quirks it has actually make it more interestin...

Directional pipe placement

From what I can tell, running two pipes immediately next to each other is less efficient in terms of overall throughput than two pipes separated by any distance - which raises the very good question of why this behavior exists at all. The easiest solution would be to make pipe bonding occur directio...

Re: Peace with Aliens

Due to pervasive postmodern ideology I think the term you were looking for was symbiosis, and the concept has been around for about 150 years or so. Or maybe that was just some satire of starship troopers and I missed the joke. No, I'm pretty certain he meant exactly what he said. Symbiosis isn't p...

Re: Peace with Aliens

Functionally, not a lot - outside of the new development that is implied by the concept. The only change would be, if the developers opted to, to revise the evolution mechanic so that it only applies if aliens are able to consume their destroyed bases (which gives the player an incentive to use terr...

Re: Peace with Aliens

Making the aliens hate the pollution and attack you for it is honestly one of the most inane, insipid, and cliched possible plot concepts. Trying to make the aliens "like" you doesn't make sense when they're obviously mindless zerg critters that are aggressive and ugly - not to mention the...
