Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Bergius Process

Oh man, thank you for this mod. I like to run a near-vanilla game but I really hate how oil becomes a huge time sink later in the game, forcing me to build annoying processing stations far away from my base. This mod lets me utilize the far more easier to transport coal! It's breathed life into one ...

Re: Are the enemies going to be redesigned?, first game awesome

I do kinda agree with the OP that combat needs an overhaul. I think it's pretty skewed right now towards certain weapon/item combos, and the way that biters scale really push you towards being a piercing-shotgun/capsule spewing power-armor bastard. It would be nice if there was other ways to deal wi...

Re: So...why do people build on top of ore deposits so often?

I'm the same. I usually build my factory away from ore deposits, on the nearest open spot I can find. Yeah, it does mean for a rather slow start at times (due to extra cost of belting resources over to the factory), or putting myself uncomfortable close to the biters, but early-game it's so hard to ...

Re: Friday Facts #76 - MP inside out

Good job on the NAT punchthru, BTW.

Seriously. Even with the LAN issues.

I've played AAA+ big-budget titles with peer-to-peer lockstep networking which couldn't even get that part right.

Re: Vehicles and Powered Armor.

Combat, IMHO, needs to be re-worked. Tanks are a great post-early-game item, but they are quickly made obsolete. You can still use them, but I find it's a drag to sit and repair a tank after every encounter. It's just faster to use power armor + shields. Piercing MGs become useless against the big b...

Re: Landmines vs Laser turrets

I used to use landmines actively during a fight (by dropping them as I was running). But now, Spitters will stop and target your landmines, just like they were any player-built structure. So I've stopped doing that.

Never used the bomber trick, though. Heehee!

Re: playing cast away?

It's a known problem and I'm sure the devs intend to address it.

I've generated maps that had me start on a tiny 1x1 tile of land in a large body of body.

There's not much you can do about it right now except to re-generate the world.

Re: Moving around on a big base

I've considered making a road mod. Initially, the mod would just for visual effects -- a way to place walkways in our bases.

But eventually I'd like them to give you (or your vehicles) a slight speed boost.

I also want to add parking lots, because I need somewhere to park my tanks. :)

Re: Tired of babysitting expansions? Auto-supply w/ trains!

Yup, that's what I do. I have a smart inserter remove the items from the train into a storage chest, then use logistics or wire logic to limit the output to, say, 10 items at a time. I did not know that trains utilized the middle-mouse filter! Neat. I've been doing my rate limiting on the pre-loadin...

Re: Friday Facts #60 - Tests all around

I'm presuming that the lower-right GIF is the most recent running animation? That looks a lot better, IMHO. There's more obvious body sway and the motion reads much better now at further distance. I shrunk the GIF down in my browser to get an idea of what it would look like at even maximum game zoom...

I recommend you add a colored arrows pointing down at all player avatars when ALT key is used to display more detail. I also agree that the drawing mode for the map would be insanely useful. I also think we need a beacon system. The ability to drop a marker on the map that flashes for a few seconds ...

Re: Experiences with multiplayer

How about difficulties for dying just like Terraria got it? I agree with this. I don't particularly agree with the "well, in SP you just die completely, the end" argument. Because if I die in SP, I just reload a save and keep playing. I've effectively lost nothing but some time. In SP, I can choose...

Re: The new char models look great, but animation not that m

I noticed that too. There's not enough head and torso bob. There's some, but it's only visible when you zoom in fairly close. I think the motions need to be exaggerated more, so that the torso/head bob is more prominent when zoomed out. Otherwise, yes it does look like the character is just sitting ...
