Re: Friday Facts #163 - New rails & New problems

Well. Imperfect circles used to be absolutely fine with 2D sprites. But with the new sprites I am seeing this: In the "imperfect circle" I see 4 "straight" pieces, forming two parallel pairs. In each pair I see one of the "straight" piece much higher than the opposing "straight" piece. To make it wo...

Re: Friday facts #158 - The end of the 32 bit era

So, how hard would it be to release a 32-bit "unsupported" version? As in: the underlying code is the same as the 64-bits version, recompiled for 32-bits, but the game is only supported for 64-bits, so if you only have a 32-bit system, and the port doesn't work, well, sorry about that, try a differ...

Re: running linux Factorio on an rpi

The devs /have/ thought about ARM.

The conclusion was something around RPI being probably okay (for non-modded game server?), if they had ARM binaries.

Re: Better RSS feed for news posts

I was hoping to create a NEWS mode feed for "General"
The phpBB documentation said "Feed that shows first post of the topics in selected forums."
But at the same time it says that the URL is "feed.php?mode=news"
I guess I'm not the one who gets to select the forums?

Factorio a primary topic of ČT's show DVA^3 ?

I just caught a glimpse of an ad of Česká Televize's
new gaming show for kids called "Dva na třetí"
The ad showed ONLY minecraft and factorio footage.

Does anyone know any details about it?

There are many other thread complaining about the map download DoSing their internet,
possibly also crashing ppl's routers and breaking the map joining altogether.
One of them should be linked here, buch which one is the main one?

Re: Freeze prevention on MP download/join

The clog situation needs to be fixed anyway.


I think that buffering at the connecting client could work well,
while buffering at the client would complicate the game loop
and lead to more corner cases with more clients joining at once.

Re: Saving server datas

I got it! You mean a in-game-stored server list, allowing for a quick connect. the factorio accepts command line arguments for connecting to servers. If you have one favourite server, you might consider creathing a desktop shortcut with the appropriate --connect argument, effectively remembering tho...

Re: Conveyer Belt Sorter

If you want to separate lanes, look for the lane splitter trick.

If you are mising several items in one lane, well, it's a bad idea in the long run.

So this is all about signals binding to / recognizing track?

Sure the devs can read the signal much better than me. Bu...

Re: Arithmetic Combinators (subtraction and division change)

I think that's why the introduced the constant combinators.
Because using a smart chest and filling it with real items would be clunky.
