Could you please stop making Factorio less and less playable?!?!



I can barely play my 1.1 save when I read about all of those improvements!
I hope they'll add these QOL improvements to 1.1 too, as it's not really a new feature

Re: Friday Facts #403 - Train stops 2.0

dunno if it's already implemented, but is there a shortcut-key to press while building over an existing rail to have it as a bridge rather than a crossing? From the map view it would be a blessing to have as few intersections as possible, even if a slope will have an impact on the trains speed, I'd ...

Re: Friday Facts #389 - Train control improvements

So now we need to create a request as an interrupt and we can generate a fully generic goods or fluids train system where you only have a depot in the schedule. This will radically change how the entire train-system is built

Re: Friday Facts #377 - New new rails

Is it too much to be asking for signals to be part of the track? If you increase the amount of rails in a single shape for example: no signals 1 light 2 lights 1 chain 2 chains 1 light 1 chain then you should need to put logic in place that you can't put 2 signal rails on top of each other and sudde...

Re: Friday Facts #376 - Research and Technology

this isn't an RPG, it's a game that is highly focused on design, production, automation and optimization so "random" is a base element that people want to either eliminate and/or design/produce/automate/optimize. a production line always starts with the most basic resource and should end w...

Re: [1.1.72]Crash while away for 10-15m

I found out the motherboard doesn't officially support DDR5-6000, but only 5600(OC). Applying the EXPO-profile and then dialing back the memory-speed to 5600 got the board stable in heaven/cinebench so I guess I only have to blame myself and the shop :oops:

Re: [1.1.72]Crash while away for 10-15m

I was planning to do so, but I forgot to launch it yesterday. I'd be surprised since this new pair has EXPO and the problems didn't start with this new set. I'm more thinking about my Corsair RM550X which is now 6.5 years old (80plus gold), but that should be more than enough for this setup: CPU: AM...

Re: [1.1.72]Crash while away for 10-15m

Is it expected behavior that despite connecting to the APU that the GPU is still used? 0.185 Initialised Direct3D[0]: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070; id: 10de-1b81; driver: nvldumdx.dll 31.0.15.1694 I thought this was only an option on laptops.

Re: [1.1.72]Crash while away for 10-15m

thx for the feedback.

I'll try running the game from the integrated APU first (to exclude the 1070) and then a bios reset (already latest firmware) + complete clean reinstall this weekend instead of the cloned/upgraded w10=>w11 setup I'm running right now.

hmm, with new EXPO-memory (2x16GB instead of 2x8GB) that runs stable in cinebench R23 at DDR5-6000 38-38-38 again a crash now after only playing a few minutes.

[1.1.72]Crash while away for 10-15m

I've build a new system last week (7600X) and had a gaming-session before on this current system prior to upgrading it to windows 11. Since the upgrade I've updated all my drivers and firmware. Memory has been left on default since it doesn't support EXPO and when trying to mimic XMP settings it wou...

Re: Friday Facts #370 - The journey to Nintendo Switch

FFF's kept a lot of people aware of the game and the journey towards the release was longer than the time it took to finish the game for everyone. I've had several early-access games that never delivered. What kept us going was probably the visible progression and mods, even now years later. So I wo...

[1.1.61] Integer overflow constant combinator

When entering a ridiculous high number like 999999999999 the constant combinator changes the value to -2147483648 so instead of ridiculously HIGH it becomes ridiculously LOW.

Can the input validation be extended to check for high/low values and put them automatically to the upper/lower value?

Re: Performance optimization - post your saves

Certainly since the UPS returned to 60 regularly but it happened both with a lot of trains in depot and in movement. I've cleared the history and now my compressed size is only 24MB so the loading an...

Re: Stations with identical names -- allowed or not?

just make absolutely sure your station is reachable, otherwise the temporary stop isn't created and you end up with the train at the other station. If you're not using filter inserters to unload what you want cleaning up your belts and chests will be a nightmare
