Re: Friday Facts #297 - New resource icons

Agreed, though whole numbers do make sense as an alternative in some situations, like with US dollars. Why bother dealing with floating point errors when you can just store everything in pennies? Completely solves that problem. I think there might be *some* situations were you don't necessarily hav...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I have written specifically about "people complaining that the new UI looks bad". That's not the same. Regardless of the rest of it you are telling the developers they shouldn't listen to people who disagree with you simply because they have a different view of things than you. That's a really crap...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Game is not only for youngs, healthy guys. Yeah, it's also for young(ish) unhealthy people, lol. But seriously, people who try to say "hey, don't listen to this group at all, totally disregard their needs because I like the way it is!!" when it's completely possible to satisfy that group without ac...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Personally i'm the opposite. Bright screen irritates my eyes and i favor dark themes whenever possible. It also causes the famous dark under-eye-patches for people for being exposed to bright lights hours and hours a day. But it shouldn't be too hard to some point later make UI color themes customi...

Re: Map generator select start area and preset

Also I would like to have an option to manually select spawn location once you generated the map preview. I could be remembering things incorrectly (it's been months since I recall reading that) but I believe that the seed you use is actually the spawn location. From what I recall reading awhile ba...

Honestly it's kinda surprising that it hasn't been added yet seeing as it should be ridiculously simple compared to most things they do in a given update. Good to see it's been suggested and heard by the devs at least though.

Re: Friday Facts #286 - Pollution cleanup

Also, if you don't like them, you can turn them off. Yeah, they're not exactly a big deal if you disable them. Which is exactly what I do since I don't find them to really add anything myself. Though this does bring up a tangential subject for me: Is there any plan to allow us to save world presets...

Re: Friday Facts #265 - Nomenclature & Steam networking

Name the action a player performs when they add a ghost entity to the world? Honestly? " Plan ". The whole "ghost" concept is a silly internal-name leak. Ask anyone who never played factorio what a ghost is and they most definetly won't start talking about construction plans. Besides the deconstruc...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

Even with pressurised pipes the first out gets more output. You might be thinking of pipes in your home where you can turn on all the sinks and they all get water. That is because each sink only allows a fraction of the water out. Even then when you turn on the cold water in the basement the shower...

What behaviour would you expect on a system like this? IN =======J=====J========J=======J=====OUT ¦¦ ¦¦ ¦¦ ¦¦ OUT OUT OUT OUT Would you expect the first output to get fully satisfied before letting fluid pass, or for it to evenly split 50% of whatever was passing through it? One like that should be...

Re: Today's forum skin update

The funny thing is that I usually either let the zoom level as is, or zoom out (for always more content at once on my screen). I admit it's a 27" though, so writing is not too small. Would be trickier on a 24". For me it depends entirely on the site. If it's a site where zooming in blows up padding...

Re: Today's forum skin update

You have to scale the content down even more to fit phones. Similarly you have to scale the content up to fit 1080p/1600p/4k displays as to not have > 50% of the display be useless whitespace. Usually at those resolutions you also need to upsize the font size anyways. I use a 2560x1440 monitor as m...

And an option to forbit blueprints you didn´t made in a game by yourself. While I wouldn't be against an option to automatically do this, you do realize you could actually do this yourself simply by giving blueprints for a given save a prefix, right? Not as good as an actual option but nonetheless ...

Yes.. it´s still a GAME not an automation-macro. Otherwise you could - after starting the factorio.exe do nothing, all is done by the auomation-game itself. Just watching it, like video. I'm not certain this is really an issue considering that you'd have to make a conscious decision to play that wa...

Re: Friday Facts #252 - Sound design & Map editor

I tried to use the map editor a few months ago, found a ton of just little annoyances (try creating a "pool" of nothingness and see what it does to the map) and gave up. It was unintuitive, clunky, and the process of loading in to playtest was a pain for fine-tuning. Glad to see it's getting some a...
