Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Testbench v4.2.1, Factorio v1.1.46 3-Way, 2-Lane, Unbuffered, spacing is 4 everywhere. Currently better than the only thing listed on that section.

Re: Bulk transferring items from player inventory into a limited chest (red slots) and vice versa

I repeat: it looks useful, but might never be implemented, because players should use automation instead of manual interaction. See 2 posts above. You can't avoid that at all with malls, modded playthroughs and buffer chests. And those things are not something that people will stop using even if it...

Re: Restricted Storage Interaction

Just bumping this up, since it is possibly the most important QoL feature that game is still missing.

I was even thinking today if it would be possible to override the behavior with a mod?

Re: Engine licensing for a full 3D factory game?

There are too big downsides to the way Factorio is written in regards to multiplayer sync and limitations in potential scale of the factory. I wouldn't wish to see Factorio 3D done like that. Take the starting point that you want it to handle 100 planets and you'll very quickly realize this engine i...

Re: Alt-F4 #55 - The Dark Alleys of Modding

I can share one issue i had with VehicleSnap. I'm still not 100% on why it worked like this but it's probably some weird case of internal vehicle physics. If you drove a vehicle towards a coastline or cliff at an angle that was not along a snap axis, for example 11, 70, 350... or you name it - degre...

Re: Shift-clicking items into red area of chests

Maybe control click once to fill up to the limit and then click again to fill red spaces. That is impractical and automation could be taking 1 item out just when you are clicking items in, resulting you to only put in 1 item. Better way is just like in Dyson Sphere Program, both Shift- and Ctrl-cli...

Any chance we could get a mode where it snaps on demand? Like when you press a specific key it snaps to the nearest 8/16/whatever, but otherwise does nothing?
The toggle key Shift-V should be enough? You can change it in controls if you want. It has also the button right side of quickbar.

Re: Shift-clicking items into red area of chests

+1 shift click should work, but not control click. Why is that? How i see it they should both work for same reasons. If you set chest with only 1 automation slot and have 30 stacks of the item in inventory, how is it better to shift click them 1 by 1? I am ofc exaggerating an example but sometimes ...

Ctrl-click should remove item from last to first order

Currently when Ctrl-clicking a chest you get items starting from top left. This makes no sense when there can be even items in the red (limited) area. With this you will have better sorting remaining in the chest and excess will be used before items in primary area. You could even re-sort a chest th...

Shift-clicking items into red area of chests

The chest limiting feature is useful - for automation. But it's not nice when you have stackloads of iron plates and you want to put them in a limited chest, we should be able to do it because that's what we end up doing manually anyway, 1 stack at the time.

[Rseding91] [1.1.25] Auto-trash with fuel slots not working with vehicles that use logistics

Taking this example from playthrough with Krastorio 2: trashing.jpg Logistics bots do fill the fuel but don't remove the depleted fuel. Some notes: - If i manually add 15 fuel to the trunk, 10 is kept and 5 trashed. Expected all fuel from trunk trashed because satisfaction now says 20/10. - Fuel out...

That effect (player being damaged) is from vanilla. This topic is just a neutral suggestion well fit for this forum. I didn't propose...

Re: Better filesystem storage of Blueprints

The most important thing about blueprint storage that relates to 99.9% of players is that it should be compatible when downgrading game version.

Epilepsy inducing screen effects

The way screen keeps flashing red when you take damage is really hard to look at even as i'm not diagnosed with any epilepsy. I can't even imagine what this flashing would do for others that actually do. Sure, player doesn't take damage 99% of the time of playing but there are times that it does. On...

There's (limited) built-in colour-blindness support now. So maybe epilepsy could be next (or at least better moddability for the blinking). What more moddability we need? As said earlier in thread there is a mod that removes warnings, and mods are able to make every texture fully transparent and 1 ...
