Re: Friday Facts #350 - Electric mining drill redesign

I don't like the redesing. The old one was a 3*3 entity farming a 5*5 area, with no sign at all how it would reach outside of that 3*3 square. Now, not even that 3*3 is explained as the drill only reaches a 1*3 area in the middle. Also the drill moves way too frequenly. If anything this should be to...

Re: Use 64-bit integers for signals

Factorio has dropped support for 32-bit systems with 0.14/0.15 : https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-158 OP is clearly talking about switching from uint32 to uint64 integer variables in terms of signal value storage, not about memory adressing and hardware architecture issues. I mean, you definitely...

Re: Ctrl+Click Craft for Stack

One disadvantage : making handcrafting even easier and useful is kind of antinomic to the game's purpose. One could argue that there are enough ways to "make things easier" to handcrafting for a game about automation. This. With 0.17 out I started a vanilla run for 'Lazy Bastard' and it's a much be...

The ghosts of these wires can't be seen if I zoom in close enough. (These are max length red and green wires on the tier three pole, as you can see in the picture)

[0.17] Closable shortcut panel (Illustrated)

Make the shortcut panel foldable (By clicking the marked area fold it completely, or unfold it, or if I drag it just fold as many icon starting from the left as I want, possibly, scrolling on it could scroll the icons too.)

[0.17.4] Belt immunity for vehicles

Either just make the vehicle I'm in immune to belts if my armor has a turned on (I have another suggestion thread about making this toggle-able) belt immunity module (preferred) or let me put one into the vehicle (bit more realistic, but the toggle mentioned should turn that off too)

[0.17.4] Shift+Q to pipette a ghost of an item

I use the pipette tool (Q) very often, to "pick up" a copy of an item if its on me and just place more of them. It works fine if I have the item but now that I'm using the logistic system I don't always have these items directly on me. So I'd just like to "Shift+Q" to pick up a ghost of the item I h...

[0.17.4] Inconsistent performance issues on high-end

Sometimes I get somewhere between 44 and 55 FPS even on the main menu (and in-game too) while the UPS stays at 60. The movement is all stuttery, just like when I'm moving my mouse above the buttons of the menu, the button-hightlights appear stuttery too. I have a high-end PC (1080Ti, i7-8700k) and I...

Re: Simple 3-combinator memory cell - handles bursts+negatives

Hi! I made an alternative version, same footprint, stores multiple things, but instead of a dedicated 'reset' signal it has a dedicated 'set' signal. (can set to nothing to reset). I credited your design everywhere where I posted it.
