Re: Map resource display filter

Just in case someone stumbles across this while searching for a solution: these days there is a mod called https://mods.factorio.com/mod/resourcehighlighter (not mine) which perfectly does this. Re-necro ;-) for a worthy cause, because THANK YOU! I just had an urgent need (again, for the umpteenth ...

Re: Train routing. Completely explained

Is there any document or probably a thread describing ALL of train routing aspects? Like that a programmer can code algo from. I do not mean proposed builds, I mean the exact algorithms they take, so I can prebuild stuff in my head instead of reverse-engineering it through experimenting (and gettin...

Re: Notifications System

A little necro, for the good cause. Let's necro this once more. Actually, for me this is alive until it's fixed. Because it's a shame in an otherwise almost ;-) perfect game. I have countless times wished that there was a proper notifications system in Factorio. The kind you have on your smartphone...

Where/how do I close the "New tips" window

Annoyingly takes away real estate. Can't find any option. Can't find a close box.

HELP ME OBI-WAN, YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE!

(I'm a *bit* annoyed at this, and starting to get pissed off… the "we have to twiddle with the UI" disease I always dread and that *EVERYONE* falls victim to)

Re: Version 1.1.0

Moved the character/vehicle gun window to the left of the quickbar.

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

I haven't come up with a practical use of this, but I can't help but ask this one thing: can we set the train limit on station via circuit network? Or, can we set the limit without physically walk to that station? Setting the limit via circuit network is explicitly mentioned. As to walking there: I...

Re: Version 0.18.38

why do you have this workflow of making copies of blueprints and putting them into your inventory and deleting them soon after. Isn't it just a habit from the times, where you couldn't use them directly from the BP library through manual selection or quickbar? Two reasons I copy BPs: the first and ...

Re: [kovarex] [0.18.37] Cannot clear cursor when keeping a ghost item in hand

Pressing 'Q' to get a ghost item in hand of an item you do not have in your inventory. Pressing 'Q' a second time will not clear the hand, the ghost item will still stay in hand. The only way I found to clear the hand was to press 'Q' on a building I had in my inventory. Or pressing a number mapped...

Re: [kovarex] [0.18.37] Cannot clear cursor when keeping a ghost item in hand

Still broken, but differently now: put a ghost in the first slot. Press 1. Good. Press 1 again, or Q: items disappears from cursor, but stays active in toolbar. Press 1 again… nothing happens, since the *toolbar* (whichever part of the game that is, code-wise) still thinks it's the active item. Need...

I don't understand all the criticism of the sounds. I find the sound of Factorio absolutely fine.

Wube could do the same as any other software and offer light (grey) and dark theme.
They could. Or they could not bother. None of the other 150 games in my library has themes.

The sense of entitlement on these forums is getting out of hand.

Re: New Character GUI (eye strain)

For me, the icons in the new crafting GUI for some reason look smaller. Couldn't figure out why, because they aren't actually smaller. After staring at your screenshots again for a few minutes, it looks like the text is higher up on the icon. Could that also be throwing you off? They look smaller i...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Please, do not listen to people complaining that the new UI looks bad. It look awesome IMO. I love the dark. Idea with GUI is ok. looks very good, but is too dark than actual. too much contrast. And, for you, new dark gui can push out players who have not very good sight. Game is not only for young...

I think train routing is subtly broken, but…

Why does it do this? Or rather, why doesn't it take the lane that is advertised (intentionally) as open? Both reach the same station. The left lane that it decides is less good (but which has space for more than one train) already *has* six trains. The right lane has none. Thus… more red signals are...
