Re: Friday Facts #320 - Color correction

Beautiful.

I wonder how that'd interact with mods like NightBrightness and BlackMap

Re: Friday Facts #313 - Light at the end of the bug tunnel

Beautiful.

A bit saddening about the spin on that journal story but at least they have a link to the FFF in question and publicity is publicity as they say... if I didn't know about factory and read that article and followed the link I'd totally be sold on factory.

Re: Give entity ghosts a shimmer / animation

I'd have to agree, I do sometimes have some trouble distinguishing ghosts from actual machines, especially at night. And, I consider myself to have pretty good eye sight. My two cents, I think making the blueprint ghosts look a little like old style holograms by adding some white noise and a tint or...

Interface option to select digits of precision when abbreviating numbers

TL;DR Interface option to select digits of precision when abbreviating numbers What ? I think an option would be nice to allow selecting a maximum number of fractional digits to put in the display. For example, 1234 with 2 fraction digits would then get displayed at 1.23k instead of just 1k. There ...

Icons for filter setting icons with generic icons

Some of the deconstruction planner filter icons are just a generic 'X' mark and one has to mouse over the icon and read the tool tip to figure out which one does what. This is annoying, inconvenient, and is hard for new players to even find out what they do. Specifically these: https://cdn.discordap...

Re: Friday Facts #297 - New resource icons

I see one artifact in that image that would want to be fixed, on the curve from going up to going left it looks like it chooses new random icons.

Otherwise, I think that looks beautiful. Love it.

Select train destination from map

I was just thinking, it would be mighty convenient if there was an option to select the train destination from the map. For example, something like a button on the train station selection dialog that opens the map and you can click on a station on the map and it goes back to the selection dialog wit...

Re: Fast Ghost Building Placement - Early game help

If there was a mod for this, I'd want it right now. But I think this is something worth being in vanilla. There are already short cuts for things like, take all in chest or deposit items into chest, why not deposit item into place on blueprint? :D

Re: Rocket launches even when output slot is full

I also noticed this behavior, and I very quickly just stuck a buffer chest for a stack inserter to move all the space science packs into and then connected the inserter that adds the satellite to only activate if there was < some number of science packs in the buffer chest.

Re: 1 or 2-to-6 train loading balancer

Ooooo!! So I can remove the constant combinator (to keep it from getting stuck when with a multiple of the number of chests) by changing the <0 or >0 with <1 or >-1 !!!! Excellent!

Re: 1 or 2-to-6 train loading balancer

The simplest circuit based balanced loader/unloader that I know of is to wire up all the chests together and input it to an arithmetic combinator set to divide by negative the number of chests. The way things are wired is just like the picture above. red wire connecting all the chests to the input o...

No train station automatic mode

I want an semi-automatic mode for trains where I can select a track segment from the map as a destination and the destination is cleared when the train reaches it. The reason I want this is with a sizeable number of trains trying to drive a train in manual mode you are nearly guaranteed to crash wit...

Re: Manual trains stop at signals.

I think he means that when manually driving a train, that the manually driven train would auto break for red/yellow signals ahead rather than just go and crash into the train that is moving through the intersection (or the automatic train crash into your manually drive one).

Re: [0.15.13] Blueprint Editor Right Click Issue

I also noticed this, I made a post about it but then noticed this one and it was a much better explanation than mine so I deleted mine as it was a duplicate. :)

Note that right click and dragging on the preview to remove (or restore) items is also broken.

Re: Train Waiting Yard

My understanding of train behavior is that the trains use a shortest path algorithm to find the shortest non blocked path. The path through the center is the shortest non blocked path. It is also the path that gets the train the closest to the station before it has to stop and wait. Though, I am uns...
