Re: Meaningful Content Update

I don't agree that this game needs more biters or expantions on the combat mechanics. Combat is a sidenote and i don't want it to be busy work, i have enough to do within the factory. I don't know how many players want to extend on combat, acutuelly no one does. Most Players are a silent majority an...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Automatic Belt (and pipe) Planner v0.12.0

I patched this, since the setting gui didn't close anymore in 0.18.x . I also added variable underground lenght for the vanilla belts, you have to choose the belt type in settings beforehand now. I wanted to fix the issue where the pathfinder put undergoundbelt in places where other belts are, but t...

Re: Show train visualization in both directions

The visualization is dependent on Signal placement, if you placed a Signal already on the Track the train can only in one way. If you place two Signals next to each other at the start of your station you can switch previews of the wagons by switching the side of the old signal.

Re: Add Game Difficulty setting in Vanilla - Easy/Normal/Difficult

I like the current Setting for the reason i can choose what i want for my game experience. There is always a learning curve in every game and i fail to see how easier recepies would change that. The extended tutorial (campaign) for new players isn't even done yet, it might help a ton understanding t...

Re: Load Game as first menu entry

But would that button sync mods if you changed them in between? Or does it load the last save with the mods currently enabled?

It wouldn't hurt to have it, but i see no point in an "Resume Game" button, since there can be multiple possible savestates the
player wants to continue.

Re: [0.17.68] performance issue when game speed is set higher than 1

Since FPS and UPS are tied together this is to expected, same happens in the other direction if you hit simulation cap (ups and fps drops). On faster speeds performance issues would show up faster and more noticable.

Re: Which factory design will yield the highest FPS?

If you reached the maximun your PC can render (FPS) there is nothing you can do to improve FPS Gamewise. If your low UPS causes your FPS to drop you can optimize your Factory to some extend to squeeze some extras UPS out. That depends heavely on how optimized for UPS your Factory already is. Active ...

Re: Map gen puts enemies too close

I Think this just boils down to what should be the "default" difficulty, and should it cater to new players and how much should it do? Maybe they should just add in a "Easy Start" setting with a bigger starting zone. I think the default is good as it is, you can get a challenging start if you dive i...

Yeah that fixed the mining part for me. It was not easy to draw the conclusion: Use the crystal mine for quartz ore.

Re: Hidden Object-Information

If you want to see the content of the logistic network, just press "L" to view it. On Small Resolutions there is a problem seen the whole entity information, turning off the minimap works best there.
Hope this is improved the readability in the new GUI rewrite anyway.

Re: [16.36] Crash in replay: "Game::connectToPlayer: Different player already connected."

Hmm can find the line a saw when i looked at it the first time. Maybe i was just to tiered to see.

Well did you change any mods within the save? Did you update a mod which added/changed the recipe of a item?

That can break the replay. With what version was the map created in 0.16?

Re: [16.36] Crash in replay: "Game::connectToPlayer: Different player already connected."

From the log it seem like you are trying to run a replay from the old 0.15 in the new 0.16 Factorio. That will not work, replays break pretty fast.

Re: New manipulators and conveyor

But you don't use one Furnace to supply all your base with iron, do you?
If you use 35 Furni you get 1 Iron Plate each 0.1 Second, so Time isn't really a Factor in Factorio. If it takes to long, upscale it!

Re: Tech for lesser idle energy consumption

Well in my opinion the only downside of lasers is, the passive energy consumption. Lower the need will change the game balance as fas
as i see it. In addition i don't see the benefit for vanilla Gameplay. What would this add?

Maybe its possible to do it in a mod?

If you know how to reproduce the delayed alarm make a bug report. I had that bug too, saw a bug report about this, but i couldn't reproduce it later.

Re: Vehicle Assembly Plant / no hand crafting of tanks / trains

I don't see the benefit of this idea for the vanilla gameplay. And why only trains? what about the assemblers or the steam engines?

This sound more like tedious "realism" gameplay which is not really fun for me.
