Re: Ability for player to autorun without holding movement key

Yes.

I'd also like to see click-to-move mechanics. Not because I would use them, but because they provide a huge accessibility benefit, using almost entirely already implemented functionality..

Re: Dynamic train schedule

I don't think I support this being in the base game. Don't get me wrong, trains are awesome, and anything that gives you more advanced train control or more reason to use trains are also awesome... But in the base idea of Factorio? You completely can (and in fact benefit substantially from) not actu...

Re: Productivity modules boundaries

Barreling, Unbarreling, Making Barrels, Kovarex, Fuel Reprocessing (yes really!), Nuclear fuel, and the Satellite are all things on the Intermediates tab you cannot Productivity. On the other hand, Productivity does work on Stone Brick smelting, which isn't actually on the intermediates tab. Persona...

Re: Logistic Science only Technologies

Strongly agree. It's not actually a significant change mechanically or gameplay wise (slightly more or less resource usge, whoop-de-doo, and even then, the amounts would probably be tweaked to keep costs similar) but thematically it makes a huge difference, and would help new players understand what...

A 'Next' Button in the FFFs.

I love the FFF. But as a rule, I binge read things like this infrequently, rather than stay up to date every week, and manually changing the URL for the next one each time is annoying, especially considering typos.

I believe this would not be a difficult change.

Re: Underground belt exit turns

It's not a main part of Factorio. Space is practically unlimited, give yourself room to breathe when you're first building. I actually enjoy the challenge of fitting the puzzle pieces together to cram new things in, but when I don't want to think about that, my layouts have lots of open space in them.

Re: A modifier key to constrain the mouse into X only or Y only movement. EOM

Hmm, thinking about it, the same feature could offer a simple screen-wide cross-hairs so you can line things up easier to make prettier bases.

I know you can get a grid if you pause the game, but you can't build while paused.

Re: A modifier key to constrain the mouse into X only or Y only movement. EOM

It wouldn't have to explicitly be one of the keyboard modifier keys, merely some key being promoted to modify mouse behaviour. And I 100% agree on locking it to map space X/Y as opposed to screen space X/Y.

Re: How do you use the Basic electric discharge defense remote?

Personal lasers are not worth it. Shields, exoskeletons, or batteries, are far better use of the space.

Re: Accumulator / Solar panel ratio

If you have 1 solar panel powering a base that draws 42 kilowatts, you will begin draining from your accumlators when the solar panel output falls to 42 KW/60 KW = 70% light level. Correct. 166.66 seconds is half and half, 70% of that is 116.66 seconds, and the total "accumulator darkness" from tha...

Re: Accumulator / Solar panel ratio

That is exactly not how math works. Especially the part about infinities. When dealing with infinities you have to be very careful about how you approach them in the limit. If you have the exact number of solar panels to sustain your base on average, then it should always switch to drawing accumulat...

Re: Accumulator / Solar panel ratio

Hmm, my math seems completely out of line with everyone else's on this, and I am still working on making my first battery. Maths: Day cycle is 416.66 seconds Daylight is 208.33 seconds Night is 41.66 seconds The remaining 166.66 is half and half. So the day is 291.66 s effective light and 125 s effe...
