Re: Friday Facts #323 - Animated water

While we're at water... What about water wells inland? I believe that it was a conscious choice not to have them buildable in vanilla. They are a thing though. If you build an offshore pump and then landfill the water it is on, it still works as a pump, and actually changes its name to "Water Well ...

Re: Underground Belt Automatic direction selection

Two things to add: 1) the direction should be selectable by the user. e.g. rotate 8 times, 4 input and 4 output ways 2) the direction guessing magic must not happen when placing blueprints or when 1 was used. The wrong direction might be intentional. 1) Not sure if that's necessary, also not intuit...

Underground Belt Automatic direction selection

TL;DR Choose the direction of the Underground Belt (Up or Down) based on what is in front of it. What ? Instead of defaulting an unconnected Underground belt to be a Down belt base it on what the tile it will be interacting with is. If its a belt going away or sideways from the underground make it ...

Re: Pipes are underused because they block movement

I'm surprised there's no Pipe Wrench mod to allow breaking normal pipe connections. Or vanilla functionality for the same. There are two mods for pipes that don't randomly connect but have specific 90° curves. One for base and on for angle/bobs pipes. I was always wondering why the devs do not coll...

Re: Having to repeat the first command bugs me.

The Inital Scan mod might help you then, it does the same thing automatically when you start a world.

Only down side is you have to manually update it to work with 0.15

Re: Friday Facts #195 - Poles re-design

But to be honest I find a bit annoying the absurdity of having a diagonal pole that requires another support on the base just to be stable. What kind of engineer does a pole like that? I personally don't think that a diagonal pole is a problem, especially within a game with a "Steampunk" graphic de...

Re: Unload four packed red belts from one cargo wagon, tileable

You can get 3 compressed blues out using that idea you just need to do two things: 1. Set the stack size override to 8 on all 12 inserter placing on belts. 2. SLOW the inserters placing on the entrance to the UG belts by 1 tick http://i.imgur.com/BHZoCLX.png That is a simple 48(47? forget offhand) t...

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

I like most of the proposed changes, except for removing the combat display from the corner. Is doesn't take up much space, and depending on the settings (ie deathworld) it can be really useful to know always be aware of your combat loadout. The only suggestion I can think of for the menus is on the...

Re: Tips, Designs, & Tricks

On the furnace discussion, here's what I use Factorio furnace setup.jpg Everyone else I've seen says they have the ore and coal down the center, but I ask why have the coal in the center? when you upgrade it will be going away, so have the ore and plate in the center so that doesn't change. It does ...
