Re: Radar scanning (and re-scanning) speed

Holy moly you guys/gals.

This thread made me realize how long I've had fun with this game while making me feel old.

I've actually posted in this thread 3 years ago.

What a time.

Re: what the point researching robot speed ? (infinite research)

The point of robot speed research is to make robots move faster. If you feel that they're fast enough, don't research it. Alas, since a player can easily outrun the construction robots sent from his own roboport, faster robot movement is quite useful. Also, faster movement means less time per full t...

Re: Fight

I, too, agree that the combat/biter part doesn't feel quite there yet. And I don't think that this is something that can be "fixed" by tweaking numbers, or adding to the already existing catalouge of weapon systems. I feel that there is a lack of a sense of what I'd call "interactive escalation". Ye...

Re: Defender robots OR: red-headed stepchildren of rebalancing

Defender robots are actually a weapon you can fire in my mods. I will admit though, that since they changed the personal laser defence (in your suit) to be 15 times as powerful as it used to be, Yes, 15 times! everything else just seems, underwhelming by comparison. I think they made it too strong....

Re: add a random / unique number combinator

Hence the need for "unique number combinator". A random (or pseudo-random) number doesn't guarantee a unique number. For once, because (as you have noticed yourself) using the same blueprint/seed leads to the same sequence of numbers, making them non-unique, but also, because even a true random num...

Defender robots OR: red-headed stepchildren of rebalancing

Ah, the old and true Defender Capsules, borderline useless ( in my humble opinion ) even before the combat rebalance, and now indirectly nerfed even further... Why is that? Am I missing something crucial? Its damage is now even less than what the piercing bullets used in its recipe would inflict, an...

Hi Kazuar, If you mean Batteries 2 - here it is: it requires purple science which requires lithium ion batteries!!!

Well, the tech that unlocks lithium-ion batteries is at least visible on your screenshot - top row, second from the left. Maybe a prerequisite tech thats still missing?

Re: Development and Discussion

Step 1: Open research screen. Step 2: Type 'filter inserter' into the search bar. Step 3: Follow the tech tree to unlock your filter inserter. What do you mean when you say 'new user'? People who are new to factorio? People who are new to the mod pack. And again, unlocking the recipe is not the pro...

I have been working on a new vanilla mode and some improvements to make localization easier for different configurations of the mods, might be ready for testing at the start of the next week.

Re: is there tutorial/lets play for anglels + bobs mods?

Not a tutorial series, but an ongoing series made by, of course, Arumba himself. Note that the modpacks you can download are for multiplayer servers he maintains for his community, which are in turn "inspired" by his series - there is a slight difference between what he plays with and what's in the...

Re: Angels refining in "Vanilla"?

Frankly, I hadn't even considered Angels Smelting/Petrochem at that point, but if it were to "combine" properly... that'd be excellent. For the "steel ore", it might simply be yielded by an ore that also returns traces of coal, since again, there aren't that many resources to choose from in Vanilla ...

Re: Angels refining in "Vanilla"?

Well, vanilla support's dead now, though the description on the mod portal still claims support for vanilla ores, btw. The vanilla version is more than a bit flawed and I don't really improving it, since the focus is on bobs and my own take on an overhaul. I stated several times that I'm myself not ...

Re: Angels refining in "Vanilla"?

I could get away with just crushing and smelting, but at that point, why install the mod in the first place? I mean, that would leave 4 out of 6 ores unused and unusable. Again, I don't have a "problem" with the sorting, my point's the second round of sorting that makes the whole shebang ~2-3 times ...

Angels refining in "Vanilla"?

Hey, first off, thanks for doing and sharing your mods. Just a few hours of playing, and it's already apparent that there has been a lot of effort that went into it, even though I'm only using "infinite ores" and "refining". That said, I seems to me that the balancing for "Vanilla"-style copper/iron...

Re: Roboport questions

Hello. Straight to the point; are Roboports sharing their robots? Can any robot fly everywhere? Robots will be assigned to any task that is within the Roboport Network Area. The reddish/orange area = logistic robot area, the greenish area = construction area. As long as the reddish areas are touchi...

Not sure if the topic's for this forum or general disco, but here we go.

Just to be clear, when you remove and re-add the mod, you are also reloading Factorio, yes? If by that you mean "First, exit the game completly , THEN fiddle with the mods folder, THEN hit the desktop shortcut again", yes. When you had all the mods activated and caused the crash, did you get the no...
