Re: Inventory Sort

Just split it in the chest. How would that solve anything? I mean, say you have 8 furnaces to fill. You split a stack of iron ore in half. Each half again. And again. And then you can simply Ctrl-Click through each furnace and be done with it. You cannot do this with autosort turned on because reas...

Re: Inventory Sort

There is a terrific mod for this already. Manual Inventory Sort I do agree this should be a part of vanilla game. There is an inventory auto-sort that you can turn on in the options somewhere. Autosorting is terrible when you want to manually distribute things between chests and such. There is Even ...

Re: Matter and energy cannot be destroyed / Destroyed structures drop contents on the ground

The spill back then was an undesired effect when you tried to mine a chest without accounting for the contents. This is bad. This idea suggests returning this, uh, feature as an additional and highly undesired effect of destroying a container. Mining is always done by a player and should have no sur...

Matter and energy cannot be destroyed / Destroyed structures drop contents on the ground

TL;DR When a storage-like structure (chests, furnaces, turrets) is destroyed, the contents should be spilled on the ground rather than get miraculously destroyed without any consequences. What and why? This adds a hilariously annoying mechanic into the game that ensures that the player must be mind...

Re: Circuit Network Information 2.0 - Open Your World

It appears to me that the Devs want to make the game as minimalistic as possible. They will only implement an idea IF: 1. It cannot be reproduced using already existing features 2. It's a QoL improvement that cannot be implemented with mods. Most of those things you mentioned CAN be created, albeit ...

Re: Cable Resistance / Non-looseless Power Transmission

Minecraft's Industrial Craft implements this in a robust fashion: by sending "packets" of energy through wires. This could be used to implement this system, but it would suffer from the fact that unlike IC, there are many more active energy generators in Factorio per tick and the way they work is in...

Re: [MOD 0.14] AAI Programmable Structures

If you open the GUI of a Vehicle Deployer and limit the cells available to none and attempt to put a vehicle into the locked cell, it will crash with an obvious exception as you are trying to access non-existent entity.

Re: Five Ultimate Challenges, Kids

(that's half the fun of a constricted base, to work out how to place things and work around obstacles) So you have never misplaced an inserter or a belt then? Because this challenge prohibits any kind of deconstruction. There is a reason why it is an "exercise in frustration". This also makes walli...

Re: Is there a way to stop trees from removing polution

Besides trees tiles also absorb pollution.

https://wiki.factorio.com/Pollution
Every chunk has a natural absorption rate per tick which is determined by the weighted average of its floor tiles.
So you need to also modify all tiles in the world.

Re: Smelters/Plastic need for full belt of blue circuits?

I highly recommend using Helmod for calculations like that. Here you go https://vgy.me/bCho8S.png 4 lines of plastic, 24 lines of iron, 40 lines of copper. And a truly horrible amount of assemblers. As of electric furnaces, it depends on the layout. Unmodified furnaces: https://vgy.me/pzstdQ.png If ...

Symbolic View of Circuit Network

TL;DR Add a less-beautiful-but-more-plain view for circuit networks. What ? Not only is working with circuit networks painful for your fingers now, fiddling with wires, but also pretty darn straining for your eyes as well. Red and green wires blend together, you can't see where anything goes and th...

[Long-term suggestion] Client-side mods

Currently, as it stands, each player must download and activate all of the mods used by the host in multiplayer. However there are some mods that are non-game changing or only do things that can be replicated without this mod by players. Those mods are, in a sense, "client-side", that is, they only ...

Firstly, this topic belongs to Balancing . Now, about the issue. You are right, this doesn't make much sense for train wagons to have lesser capacity than chests.
