Re: Version 0.17.54

Are you suggesting deaf players shouldn't be able to play the game either because they cannot hear it? They can simply install PulseAudio, even if they won't use it. Again, PulseAudio is installed by default on every modern distro, so for the majority of people that means they don't have to do anyt...

Re: Version 0.17.54

Yeah, that would be not a bug. And yes, actually using Pulse is not mandatory, you still have the option of using ALSA or OSS, but you need the libpulse.so library. The above error is what happens when pulse is not installed. As pulse is listed as a dependency, this is an expected error. This is al...

Re: Version 0.17.48

Added a sanity check to LuaForce::chart() that errors on large sizes instead of trying to use 71,000 gigabytes of RAM. That is a hell of a lot of ram, servers dont even have that much! We have a pair of 64TByte machines, but I´ll get either shot by the other admins for trying to install or we´ll ru...

Re: Modular Extensible PnP Factory

I still use it for mid-game. I build a basic early game red science factory, steal belts and iron from it to build this style bus for all red/green, and then add blue on the end of the belt. Once I need more than r/g/b science, I tend to switch to a bot based compact system of assembler rows.

Re: How to build a Dyson Sphere

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringworld_series

The books revolve (ha!) around finding an artificial ring around a star. Not an entire sphere, but possibly easier to build because of the lesser material requirements and ease of simulating day/night.

Re: [0.17.1] Copy BP into Quickbar

Fixed in Version: 0.17.38. When a temporary blueprint(e.g. blueprint from copy) is placed in the quickbar, the blueprint won't be destroyed when clearing the cursor and instead moved to the inventory. Thanks. This is amazing, THANK YOU!!!! No more "lets cut this and move... oh no, where did the blu...

Re: Version 0.17.23

I've always said, that if one knows how to program, one should be able to program in any language after a very short time (functional languages, and things like assembly, excluded). You won't be an expert in it, necessarily, but you should be able to do most routine work. Programming is programming...

Re: Version 0.17.23

Neither mod that I currently maintain were broken by this update, but I am getting regular crashes when saving causing corrupt save files. Hopefully the crash report uploads are helping.

If you are in hour 150 and you die of bitter attack, you have no one to blame but yourself. That was an example. As a player who won't accept losses in this game I don't know what the rest of you expect. What is an approximate maximum number of hours in which losing all your work would not be your ...

Re: Friday Facts #283 - Prepare to Launch

I find it odd that so few people play at a level which includes the possibility of losing? I die from biters more than 75% of the time and love that I fail. If a game takes less than 2 hours to play, losing is fine. If I'm in hour 150 of a factory no way am I restarting for any reason other than th...

Re: Question about mods

I would suggest including bob's extra inserters, they make complex builds so much more fun to build because of the expanded access to inventories.

I play with this one even if I do not use the rest of bobs at all.

Re: Friday Facts #283 - Prepare to Launch

Please make the red and blue belts slow down the biters a bit more. I understand needing them to be able to overcome blue belts to prevent entirely breaking them, but I think the speed penalty rate should be the same as for players. (This way, they would still catch up to a player running against a ...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Compression Chests: virtually unlimited storage

Since this mod has not been officially updated for two factorio versions now, I decided to update it.
I have modified the original 0.14 version to work with 0.16 and posted it as a new mod here:
