Re: Friday Facts #366 - The only way to go fast, is to go well!

This is kind of what made me quit the software industry. I've used these practices in my hobby programming projects for years and knew how well those worked. Then when working at a company, I was forced to abandon these practices. Whenever I mentioned them, I got accused of lacking experience or not...

Right clicking text box selects all text

TL;DR When right-clicking a non-focused, single line textbox select the text contained therein. What ? The current behavior for non focused single line textboxes is that when you click them they get focused, which allows you to type in them. There is no difference between using the left or right mo...

Re: Friday Facts #288 - New remnants, More bugs

One neat solution that would completely bypass all the rendering order issues, is to also export depth information when rendering the images. These can then be used during rendering to fill the depth buffer (or z-buffer) for occlusion. Another benefit of that is that you only need 1 image+depth info...

Re: Friday Facts #238 - The GUI update (Part II)

I agree with Kovarex on the Queue button. First the semantic meaning of the labels is inconsistent: Queue = Action Queued = Status Researched = Status Unavailable = Status It is not clear whether clicking 'Queued' will in turn unqueue the research. Is suppose it is not, as it is not rendered as a bu...

Re: Building a 1TW nuclear reactor

[Edit] I'm curious... does the blue belt handle the amount of fuel needed at this kind of power generation? 6252 fuel every 200 seconds at full burn... 31 fuel per second... ~16 fuel per second per side. Yea, blue belt will handle that. Had been wondering what a belt design could handle reactor wis...

Re: Ropeway conveyor above the factory...

I've looked into what it takes to turn this into a mod. I found that it can be done, but only as a proof of concept, or in a very limited fashion. The biggest problem is drawing the belt lines and animating the buckets. One approach is to bake the belt lines and buckets into a single animation, howe...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

A lot of the posts here talk about why bots are overpowered, I agree with them. A lot of the posts here talk about why bots shouldn't be removed or nerfed, I agree with those too. If you don't like bots, don't use them. Factorio is most of all, a sandbox game, so in the end, it should be the player ...

I found myself in need of something like this, though managed to come up with a work-around. If the signals are all positive then: Create a constant combinator with all the signals you want to keep set to 1. If you need more than 18 signals, use multiple combinators and connect those. Then attach th...

Add rocks to terrain settings

For creative mode design and testing purposes, it is nice to have a clean empty world with no biters, trees, rocks , cliffs, water, ores and oil patches. In the resource sand terrain settings in the map generator all can be set to none , except for rocks, as there is no option to control the amount ...

I was wondering if I could build a nuclear reactor that outputs over 1TW (=1000GW) worth of power. So I built one: 1TW.png What is needed? To produce 1TW worth of power, solar panels isn't going to work. It would require ~16.7 million solar cells, which would result in ~146.500 chunks paved with sol...
