Re: Friday Facts #39

There could never be 1000000 items on belts in Unity I guess.
Well that sounds like a challenge!

Re: Map Exchange String

It does not make sense for the map exchange strings to be actual fully-editable text boxes. When will someone EVER want to manually type it in, or edit parts of it? It doesn't? What If I want to type some text into the string, as minecraft allows? (Like, "PleaseNotATinyIslandAgain" :P) Because it d...

Map Exchange String

It's not entirely obvious how this works, and you can't get the string whilst in a game, so I suggest improving the interface to this somewhat. Provide a 'copy' button in the existing Map Exchange string pop-up so you don't have to manually select and CTRL+C the text - it's a little bit fiddly on hi...

I can't wait!

Hope you can also add that weird noise you hear on the rails when a train is approaching.

Well, to be honest that'd be something to automate soonish, especially as Albert's time is already full up :D

Re: Normal maps for cool lighting effects

- it would make it more unmovable. The graphics from mods has problems to be rendered. Not sure what you mean... all that would change is that each sprite would have it's graphics plus a separate one for the normal map. Replace unmoveable with unMODable. iPad is sometimes nasty... I don't think it ...

Re: Normal maps for cool lighting effects

Not sure why this thread appeared twice, anyway here's my edits to the other one:

Have a look at this example from a tool called 'Sprite Lamp'.

Also, by 'time of day', I meant changing the lighting direction based on time of day, as obviously the game already has night/day :)

Re: Normal maps for cool lighting effects

- the sprites are rendered with light coming from upper left. If you change the direction it would look strange No, the point is that you render the sprites with completely flat lighting, and let the normal map control all the lighting from then on. - extra shadows need more RAM. It's already a big...

As a long-time Unity user, I'd love to try a Factorio-scale game, just for the technical challenge.

Re: Moving single items from stack

Another option here would be to drag the mouse while holding the mouse button.

So you open your inventory, click and hold on the item, then drag up to increase quantity, down to decrease.

This would work because you can't drag & drop items at the moment.

Normal maps for cool lighting effects

Since the sprites are created in a 3D package, it would be relatively simple to also have normal maps for them. This would allow some really cool lighting effects (including changing time of day, although of course this messes up shadows!) I understand that there are issues with the huge atlases at ...

Re: Spreadshirt and Factorio Gear

What would be awesome? A community competition to come up with some T-shirt designs, and then vote on the top 5 or so to actually add to Spreadshirt or Cafepress or something.

Reward/prizes? Er... dunno
