Re: [0.17.79] Game froze on quit

If it happens again, can you create minidump in Process Explorer and upload it here? I'd be interested to see what exectly did it hang on. Yes. Sorry, haven't played or checked forums in a minute, work has been hectic, and also Animal Crossing, lol. However, I see your message here, and if I ever r...

If you can reproduce this in the latest version let us know, but this is not crashing in factorio nor is it the latest version.
Then put it in Pending, Not A Bug, or Won't Fix where it belongs... or just lock and delete it.

It certainly crashed in Factorio.

Re: [0.17.79] Game froze on quit

This is definitely not "Technical Help"... weird move.

To anybody confused about finding this here: This was posted to Bug Reports. I'm not really looking for any input or answers. So don't look too hard for a question mark.

[0.17.79] Game froze on quit

I pressed the Quit button from the in game menu and the game just completely froze (except for the pointer). The quit button was frozen in the bright orange click state. I have never, ever seen Factorio hang before (I go back at least to 0.12.x). I don't really have any other information. The proces...

Re: Set chain signals to red via circuit network

I asked rseding about it in chat a while back and he basically said they "didn't think it would encourage creative gameplay" and so wasn't worth working on. Obviously, I disagree.

Re: Make save game overwrites less dangerous

One more use case possibly? If the selected save has a different map string than the current save. I didn't want to complicate the code too much. Version and playtime are in an easy to read header, so that made the implementation quite clean. So, I have another case I'd like to see cause an overwri...

Indicate connection status on circuit/logistic network settings buttons

BTW, just by seeing how people dislike the flashing thing on unpowered entities, I'm not sure your suggestion would be unanimous.
https://mods.factorio.com/mod/No_Power_Icons takes care of that.

Easier to make a mod to remove them, than to add them if the functionality doesn't exist.

Flashing icon on empty mining drills

I'd like a flashing warning icon on mining drills whose status is "no mineable resources" just to make them easier to spot when doing cleanup rounds.

Not a notification, just an icon, like the no fuel and no power ones.

What determines the red vs. blue ends of trains?

Double-ended trains seem to have a red light on one end and a blue light on the other. What determines which end is red vs. blue?

Max connection distance is taken as lower value from entities to be connected. Ah; this seems reasonable. Thanks for...

Reasons not to continue using depleted oil patches?

If an oil patch is depleted, and assuming that: - Powering it is not a problem, and - There are no biters in range of the pollution it generates, and - Oil demand is being satisfied overall Is there any other reason not to continue using depleted oil patches forever?

Re: Why aren't my oil fields dropping to 20%?

While cycles left is greater than 6000 (20% yield) and greater than 20% of the initially available cycles , each pumpjack cycle reduces the number of cycles left by one. What am I missing here and why is this patch (for example) holding at 342% instead of dropping to 9*20%=180%? I bolded what you a...

Wait. Cancel this. I just now, after wanting this for so long, discovered "item on ground" in the misc category of the item filters.

Add stone and coal to allowable deconstruction planner filter items

I would like stone and coal added to the items that are selectable as part of the filter for the deconstruction planner. Rocks can sometimes leave piles of stone and coal on the ground when destroyed; so stone and coal are sort of technically in the same category as rocks in that context. It's often...

There's a console command you can run to to that:

/mute-programmable-speaker

It doesn't disable achievements and doesn't need you to be an admin.
Oh sweet!

I think it would be great to tie something in the main UI to that functionality as a vanilla feature.
