Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

This used to be a plan long time ago, but lately, especially after doing it for the beacon, I am glad we have not done that. It would fine to do if the game was 3D and we could just rotate and place 3D models of modules into the slot positions on machines, but dealing with all the 2D variations of ...

Re: Friday Facts #285 - Bugs, Bugs, Bugs.

For love of gods, dear Wube, just add them loaders into game properly.
They're the only way belts can win with bots.
(Except another tier of belts, obviously)

Re: Friday Facts #282 - 0.17 in sight

We're getting new generator for maps, and god bless you all for that. But this raises some questions too. Cold biomes when. Swamp biomes when. Alium creep biomes when. Especially if they actually do creep and require flammenwerfers to be removed. Both belts and bugsies need some love too. New tier, ...

Re: Development and Discussion

I've got an idea about big and smol assemblers last night. What if smaller assemblers were cheaper to build and faster at work, but more expensive to run, while bigger were the opposite? So for example smol t1 assembler prepares two iron gears in 0,66 s (33% gain), but requires 5 iron plates (25% lo...

Will the graphic updates of bugsies go hand in hand with upgrade of their AI

Also loaders when?

Re: Configuration & usage

Hello, I need some help with understanding the lua behind stone removal, specifically which command is used to remove stones and what force the farl belongs to.
I need this information to adapt one scenario to be used with FARL without breaking it.

Re: Friday Facts #263 - Trains in blueprints

It's a quality of life change, it's not making belts obsolete. If you think so, you probably don't know about greatest train trick of all time the gap between two train cars is big enough for 4 inserters, and all four reach both cars, giving throughput equal to 138% of two blue belts, with probably...

Re: Friday Facts #263 - Trains in blueprints

There is a very easy solution: Make special Loading and Unloading structures specifically for train wagons (like in Real Life) that can only use Belt Loader/Unloader to get stuff in or out of wagons and disable the ability of inserters to pull things directly out of wagons. Done! Yeah, but this req...

Re: Friday Facts #259 - Scan-codes, Prototype IDs, HR worm

Bugsies getting some love?

May i ask if you have any plans to make them more of an actual threat than just PITA?

Cause if we could get some more sophisticated bugsy behaviour, it would be cool
maybe even functionalities for pvp hoomins against bugsies scenarios

They're so weak that they make bots look like gamebreaking cheat and almost got them out of game, all while one stupid trick with trains eclipses the belt bus completely
