Re: Bugs in 0.2.9 and testing

This is alpha, we should know there are going to be bugs, and lots of them. I do not think you need "early testers" we are all early testers. I do agree that simply marking a known to be solid build as stable is a good idea though. Likely keeping the demo on that version until a new one happens by.

Re: New, Separate design. Fill free to comment

I was just contemplating starting a heavily logistic robot based factory design, so seeing how you did it is interesting. Once you commit to logistic robots though, I have to wonder if there is something more efficient/compact that can be done. For example, with optimal production ratios a single ad...

Re: Compact belt arrangement

I'm up for option C, as the different speeds can easily also mean a different depth. Untrue the way it is implemented here (no flexibility on side to side movement for crossing). See picture. http://i.imgur.com/y1F1Cq6.png I always chose gameplay when I have to choose between gemeplay and realism. ...

Re: [Polls] Creepers in the demo

I feel like warning when they spawn, along with small enough waves that you can easily manually defend (maybe even give hidden armor to make the player extra resilient) is the right approach here. Gives the intro to the idea of constant pressure, while keeping it very low risk. I feel like if you ma...

[Not a bug] Advanced Circuit displays incorrect craft time

In the crafting menu it lists the craft time for advanced circuits as 16, in the config lua it is set for 1. Discovered this while trying to make a factory setup without extra production facilities. A few others seem to be off as well, though not as significantly as this one. I am guessing the long ...

Smart Power Poles

After trying to manage my power network a bit using smart inserters to shut down factories and labs at night I was thinking smart power poles would be very useful as well. Some functions might include detecting both current output and max output of attached generators and allowing those conditions o...

Re: Guide for Level Creating and Modding

How hard would it be to add something to fill all of the turrets on the map with ammo at the start of the game? Looking at making a custom map now, but the prospect of manually filling all the enemy turrets is.... daunting.

Re: How does steam work?

There are two facets that come in, temp and pressure (or maybe flow). Each pump is capable of providing a certain amount of water, and each boiler is capable of heating a certain volume a certain amount. Steam engines do not cool water, but rather simply consume it, at a pace relative to their load....

Re: game speeeed..?

This makes me feel so much better. I was having the hardest time assaulting the creeper base in Campaign 2 mission 1, but now that I know that everything was going at double time I do not feel nearly as bad. Easy fix though, just gotta turn down my refresh rate. EDIT: Oh my gosh, the game feels so s...

Map Editor - Deep water & land interaction

Using the map editor to place land right next to deep water does not create normal edges. Further, a thin strip of grass though deep water simply displays as shallow water, despite allowing you to walk over it and place items on it as normal. Picture attached showing how various patches of water ren...

Map generation - blank selection

You can force any dropdown in the map generation selection box (for freeplay or map editor) to become empty by clicking on the very last pixel in the dropdown menu. It works better if you go from the bottom up, your mouse must be in the dropdown but very good should not be highlighted yet. Maps gene...

Re: RTS direction

I really like the RTS-y feel of this game while being an actual character on the ground. I like the idea of automated builder robots, but they should only be necessary for high end constructions, or if you want to drop a pre-arranged setup down (like a mine area complete with tracks) imho. I also di...

Re: Hidden ores

Yeah, but don't you think aluminium is more used than diamonds ? I think so. There are tons of things that should come before diamonds. Well, aluminum gets used more because there is more of it. It is crazy abundant. It has very few remarkable properties though. It is ultra-cheap, light, and relati...

No please, NO DIAMONDS. It's part of MC, and it's cool in MC, but as there are already guys stupid enough to say "hey, it's a MC-like" ... btw, diamond has almost no industrial uses IRL (I mean, it has some, but for its price ... it's very often replaced by an synthetized one, or by something else ...

Re: When interacting with circuit network can destroy items

I did some further testing, my initial report was inaccurate. I would still consider it a bug though.

Re: Automatic Power down inserters at night

Boilers seem to only use as much coal as needed to keep engines going for the power they use (not what they can make). When the solar generators are enough to power everything there is 0 coal used on my steam plant, despite the steam engines being hot and ready to go. At night the steam engines ramp...

[Resolved 0.4.0] Mouse clicks originated in gui that closes

You can destroy items behind the menus while clicking in the circuit network window on a smart inserter. I blew up like 5 transport belts before I figured out what was happening.
