Re: Improving usability of logistics slots

4: against all conventions. look how operating system / forms in browsers work. You need a really good reason to do that and I don’t see it here, because the current behavior is also “right” in its kind of logic. As far as i can see, all established conventions work as i'm suggesting; they scroll w...

Re: Improving usability of logistics slots

2) You are forgetting that item in hand is not actually there, it's a reference to inventory. There's no issue of space. It's just the same as pressing Q, except if i remember right, Q does nothing while that UI is open. Think of anything you would do with the item in hand after setting the filter. ...

Improving usability of logistics slots

There are a few issues with current UI, which overall means more clicks needed than in old UI. It comes down to few things: 1) When making a new filter by clicking an empty slot, you need to click the empty filter slot again too to select something to it. There is no reason for this middlestep, It s...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

I like the logistics UI now but it could still be improved. It takes too many clicks to make a new request filter. - When making a new filter by holding an item, it should clear the hand slot. Because you still need to click the buttons it would be clearer if the item you were holding was not in the...

Re: Mod hotkeys: custom-input documentation please?

For people stumbling on this thread in 2020, consuming = "script-only" is deprecated way to code. Your only options are
"game-only" or "none" https://wiki.factorio.com/Types/ConsumingType
Recommended choice is "none" that should work best for most mods.

Re: Else output for decider combinator

For consistency this seems like simplest way to do it in current (And no, i don't think it's simple. That's 4 values, what if it's 400? Difference between 399 and 798 combinators is huge): { A >= B, output O1=A A < B, output O1=B } { O1 >= C, output O2=O1 O1 < C, output O2=C } { O2 >= D, output O3=O...

Re: Else output for decider combinator

It's really difficult to think of way to even present an example. You can't make a blueprint ingame because the UI doesn't have else and how do you figure out a smart written format? I guess some typical examples involve finding lowest or highest number out of many values. If you have A, B, C, D and...

Re: Else output for decider combinator

This forum is the place to make such arguments. Anybody can check whether what I said is true. If I'm wrong, show the counterexample. Imagining one-combinator versions of sometimes-useful two-combinator gizmos is entertaining but there's an actual *problem* it would solve, you should be able to sho...

Re: Better car controls

For inspiration, old game Slicks'n'Slide was great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzs8dTx4LA8 Game doesn't need hyper realistic physics to implement drifting. In basic principle a car has 3 vectors: position, velocity and acceleration. Per game tick happens per car: (Count new acceleration based o...

Re: [0.18.8] Adding a modded recipe that is hidden from graphs

Thanks that works. I think i need decomposition off for compressed items as well as they're not actual raw materials.

[0.18.8] Adding a modded recipe that is hidden from graphs

Working on SimpleCompress for which compressing/decompressing items should not count as production or consumption in the graphs. It's basically same as barreling, logistic recipes. I tried looking into how barrelling works and match it to the mod but so far no success. Even this script which i belie...

Re: LTN - Logistic train network requester help

Filter can only be positive for inserters. So at least you need to use an arithmetic comb. and set it to EACH * -1. I don't use even something like that. If you go in the mod options and toggle off the "Finish loading", it will only load in as many items as the request is, not fill the cargo wagon ...

Some of those 1-4-1 trains are not actually 2-way trains. It matters which way you place the locomotives, using R key when placing them down.

Re: LTN - Logistic train network requester help

What condition on the inserter and what signal are they receiving? You can see signals by connecting the wire to a powerpole. In simplest requester station for LTN you don't need to wire inserters at all though. Sounds complicated to me :roll: Basically you always want to empty the train entirely on...
