Re: Improve Itemtransport between chests and belts

You can balance unloading of chests using a moderately complicated set of circuit wires. I don't think you get full throughput that way, but it's an option if you really want to keep the chests balanced.

Re: Quality of life improvement: Visualize one-way rails with arrow

Direction is implied by the train blocking which is shown when placing a new signal, but I don't see any harm in making it clearer, especially for new players. It can always be made as an option which can be turned off in the graphics menu.

The dev with one of the most loyal fan bases in the industry has 198 stolen games sold through G2A, and they try to paint it as a big success!

Re: Change of starting mechanics

This could maybe be an option if you set a very large starting area. The problem is that starting areas are quite heavily managed in the map generation - providing a set area of no biters, and all basic resources. It would be difficult to change this without major repercussions

Graphics Settings Presets

It would be useful for players with limited knowledge of graphics options to be able to choose from a couple of presets in the graphics settings menu, especially coming up to 1.0. Maybe also make a divide in the UI between settings which influence performance, and settings which don't.

Re: Add a signal connection point in the middle of curved rails (please!)

This would be great, and I don't see any problems technically or for new players. These signals would act identically to current signals. The only difficulty is the requirement for new models of signals at new angles.

Re: Synch Game Version

I would like someone on any version (including eg 0.17.77 and hasn't downloaded the update yet) to be able to see any server from any version, but at least 0.17.74 and 0.17.78 and be able to synch to it.

Synch Game Version

In the same way as you can synch mods with a multiplayer server or a save game, it would be useful if you could synch gamer version number. Currently I don't think the server shows up at all if you're on a different version.

Did anything ever come of G2A's offer to reimburse the cost of credit card chargebacks at 10x the cost?

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

If you think researches are a boring aspect of the game, make them more interesting. Adding a fanfare every time you finish each one isn't a solution.

Re: Is Mining Hardness/Power needed?

It looks like it was added a long time ago to allow for more options with miners that never materialised. As said above, we already have different gating mechanisms for Oil and Uranium, so having mining hardness just adds unnecessary complexity.

After getting Sulpher Dioxide in my Sulphuric Acid pipes for the second time today, I'm really missing the old pipe cleaner mod. Does anyone know of an alternative?

Miner Circuit Outputs

I think the miners are giving out the wrong figure for resources left when set on 'whole patch'. I think they're giving out the amount for just that miner instead. Can someone with more experience using these circuit conditions please check it?

Multiplayer Desynch when placing blueprint.

I am hosting a multiplayer game with a small number of mods. Whenever I place a blueprint through the map view that is partly outside radar range, it desynchs my co-op partner. I have attached all the files that I think are required. They are mostly from my PC, but the desynch report is from my part...

That's fixed it. I have power :D

Has anyone noticed a problem with solar panels? I've started making a solar farm and it feels instinctively like they're producing less than I would expect, but I didn't calculate it out properly.

Re: [MOD 0.15.x] Global Tick Time Scale - (Supports 120 FPS)

I'm targeting 20 FPS. and my nuclear setup is suddenly a long way short of powering my factory. I think it's producing the same amount of power as before in GW, but my satisfaction is somewhere near 25%. Maybe consumption is trebled when running on this speed, but nuclear reactors are still producin...
