Re: Vehicle Acceleration/Top Speed for Cars

I think cars should have a fixed acceleration, no matter what fuel you are using. Without gear change it would be hard to drive precisely otherwise. The maximum speed might be increased though. The tank should accelerate fairly good, but being simply cut at a rather low speed with normal fuel. It w...

Re: Vehicle Acceleration/Top Speed for Cars

Fuel has no bearing on how well a vehicle can brake or turn, so a fuel modifier for these makes no sense. We can already mod these directly, although I would support a research tech being able to mod these as well. But it doesn't make sense to be on the fuel. Don't attack an additional suggestion I...

Re: Vehicle Acceleration/Top Speed for Cars

If the top speed modifier is indeed not affecting cars, then that sounds like a bug report. Cars do not have a top speed attribute. Their actual top speed is a function of their acceleration power and their current friction values. I also fail to see what fuel has to do with these: braking_power (h...

Vehicle Acceleration/Top Speed for Cars

VANILLA FACTORIO Currently, the top speed modifier on fuels only affects the top speed of trains. The acceleration modifier on fuels affects the acceleration of trains, but for cars if affects both acceleration and top speed. WHAT I AM SUGGESTING I want to be able to make fuels which can influence ...

I wouldn't know, but at a glance I suspect it might be Titanium by brevven causing the issue. Also, by the looks of it, you are more likely to get a prompt response there. So I'd try reporting it to brevven.

Flamethrower Turret: more options w/fluids

TL;DR Add more ways for fluids to affect the flamethrower turret beyond only damage. Fluids in Flamethrower Turrets Currently, flamethrower turrets have their damage affected by which fluid you have hooked up to fuel them, for example they receive a 10% damage bonus when using light oil as opposed ...

Re: Map Laser Turret Color Red

Why don't all turrets have the same color? We don't have different colors for different types of factory buildings. You want that level of detail, that's what you zoom in for. There should be one color for "defense system" across the board.

Can't login to mod portal from in game

I can login to the mod portal just fine via browser, but I can't login in-game. When I try in-game, it says that my username and password are not associated with any account. I have made certain that I have typed them correctly. Nobody else seems to be experiencing this issue, and it just started a ...

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

Can you help me? I am trying to edit the mod, but I am confused as to how it works or where each thing is. The structure is not like other mods which I am used to. I seem to be experiencing an issue in which I get double pollution output but only half pollution cleanup. I'm okay with the output, it ...

Re: request: mod that changes accumulator priority

Neither complex nor lacking. Until you try to make it stop flickering. This is a standard solution that is proposed way too often by people with too little experience with the topic. Please stop. Note that this would make it utterly impossible to charge accumulators using a steam engine. Many of us...

Re: SR-latch

Would someone, please, implement SR-latch as a simple to use single item? I think the power switch should have an optional SR mode. In the normal mode, it always reads the signal and updates immediately as soon as it changes. In the SR mode, it has two conditions, an on condition and an off conditi...

The real reason that turret creep is a common strategy

It is an extremely common strategy: when taking land from enemies, setup a row of turrets near their spawners, and setup another row a bit closer, until you have placed the turrets within firing range of the spawners. Common, and highly unpopular. Many players insist that this should not be how the ...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Since the oil field, once depleted, becomes a permanent resource and will never change its output rate, you can simply get an estimation of how long that will take and calibrate the train to come that often. You can also use this train for other tasks that always take the same amount of time every t...

I can, however, say that you should not be seeing damaging levels of pollution from a single burner drill - that is far in excess of normal. They might not have caused damage immediately. All I know is that they showed up as soon as I started mining, and they caused damage as soon as I was inside o...
