Re: Shadows under power lines don't match up [0.18.1]

I knew it wouldn't be a must fix urgently :) I'm happy enough that it didn't get moved to the won't fix sub forum

Shadows under power lines don't match up [0.18.1]

Probably not worth fixing but now I've noticed it, it does annoy me Power line shadows are wrong compared to all other shadows because their change in height is seen as a change in NS axis From looking at the game: The daylight appears to come from the West at about 45 degrees Wires strung between p...

Re: Show last 5 Server played in Multiplayer.

Entertaining xD But seriously having a list of recent or favourite servers would be cool, I wouldn't use it so much for the server list thing cause I rarely play there but I have a number of Direct connect servers and having the IPs and passwords already entered would be cool.... I'm thinking like M...

Re: Cursor placement in "Select a signal"

1: How do new users know this the first time they interact with the thing? opt in is only opt in so long as you know, if they don't know then they think that their controls being taken away is a bug The first time they interact with the thing, they'd learn.

Re: ui-qol: combinator constant input field pre-select

1. In this particular instance I actually can and would justify disabling the game's other controls. By clicking the selector, you'd be acknowledging that the other controls will be disabled while you select a signal or input a constant, an action that would take tiny amounts of time if this change...

Re: Cursor placement in "Select a signal"

Given that my original problem with this idea is I don't want my keyboard to rebind and do funny things outside of my control in a game at any point (even more so where biters are involved) and there are good reasons for not doing it beyond just my personal preference (accessibility being the bigges...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

I'm not sure if FFF225 is attempting to extinguish or fan the flames in the wake of FFF224.

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Bot Nerf + Fluid Nerf + Artillery? => better idea Make certain things more limited than others and only in certain places. We've seen it with Artillery ammo already, they have a stack size of 1 but a train wagon with a huge super gun on it has more capacity than an otherwise empty cargo Wagon. Why n...

I think that there's no way to take the fuel out of a furnace at present are you asking for this ability? cause that would mess up automation of plates since coal would go onto those belts

Re: Auto-Request

I like the idea of "Craft or Request" when clicking on something, I generally have a bunch of stuff in my storage system and I'd like to request that before crafting in an emergency but this order could be toggled. You click the button to get 1 or 5 of an item, then it attempts to order items from l...

Re: Right click on free ground is unused! -> Rotation via mouse!

I put the eyedropper/picker/pipette tool on my middle mouse button and have R for rotate one way and remap shift+R to one of my mouse buttons, means I can do the things you suggest with my mouse mostly.

Re: Easy QoL Improvement: Auto-Request!

Except the game does everything it can to push you to autocrafting and while the idea is simple, it really isn't.

exactly Hitzu, though that's besides the point (I could easily have quoted that too but it didn't need saying :p) The point is there is a potential for height and they haven't added it to the game in spite of having it there and requested. It also wouldn't help with what olafthecat wants because as ...

The devs seem to have a working demo of height working for their own purposes but clearly haven't added it to the game.
