Re: [kovarex] Mod settings startup tab missing scrollbar if many settings pressent

just updated from 0.18.26 to 0.18.27 and all three tabs have a scrollbar now !!! of course i can't tell yet whether it really is fixed now, or whether it is only a coincidence of having the right window and tab widths to not create the problem for my current combination of widths (when playing in di...

Re: Version 0.18.27

after installing this new version, quite quickly 30+ of the mods that i have installed (not all enabled) were updated on the portal, and while checking 25 more mods that factorio has disabled on starting this new version (out of a total of 100+ that i had enabled :-), i found that only 4 of them rea...

Re: Version 0.18.22

It makes perfect sense to clean up on the experimental branch in preparation for the 1.0 release ... Nobody is forced to play on the experimental branch. correct in both points, but if you want to play with mods you mostly are forced to play with any experimental 0.18 while the last stable is still...

Re: Version 0.18.22

One could live with the warnings, but breaking a mod that one relies on is a drastic measure. I agree it's bad for people who rely on mods where the author is MIA. Otherwise, I guess it shouldn't be too hard to fix this ... ... So, getting this fixed is easy, once you're aware of it. A warning may ...

Re: [MOD 0.14.x] Bottleneck

How do I make my mod settings for this mod to stay for each game, not just per map? if you change mod settings while in a map, the changes apply only to the current map. if you change mod settings while in the factorio main menu, those will be the new defaults that are used on new maps. a special c...

Re: [kovarex] Mod settings startup tab missing scrollbar if many settings pressent

i came here by searching for "scroll bar" since i just had the same problem in the newest version 0.18.15 ... when i looked at the mod options, "startup" and "map" had a scrollbar, and "per player" didn't. but i could scroll the list with the mouse wheel. thus i would think that this problem is not ...

Re: [0.18.3] Inserter grabs from far side instead of close side depending on belt state when placed down

to me, this looks somewhat related to something i read and learned about "cars on belts" some time ago. there, i read that inserters "lock" to where they grab items from (from belt vs from cars). this case to me looks similar: inserters seem to "lock" to the inner corner/quadrant of the belt tile wh...

Re: [MOD 0.17] Wood to Oil Processing

the description sounds really nice, and it probably would be quite helpful when playing a map with some mods that produce lots of wood. but currently, i have some problems when i try to use this mod in my modpack: first of all, factorio just was updated to 0.18 and this mod is only available for 0.1...

Re: [MOD 0.14] Alien Biomes

when i used Alien Biomes, Dectorio and Asphalt Roads (and even more other mods) in 0.16, i always hit the "255 IDs" hardlimit of Factorio. thus i stopped using several of these mods, no matter how nice they looked and how much i would have liked to play with them. But now I'm about to start a new ma...

Re: [kovarex] [0.17.36] Factorio doesn't remember key bindings from previously active mods

thank you !

i can't count the hours (days) that i had to spend (during the last years, already in 0.16 or even before that) to adjust settings and controls of mods when switching back and forth between maps with different modpacks.

Okay, in 0.17.9, these technologies will stay in the list of technologies until they are actually researched. thanks for making the behavior consistent on all technologies.
