Re: Friday Facts #113 - Better rail building

Looks amazing, I bet it was fun to code as well. Any chance it can be extended to provide some more of the extra features the automatic rail layer provides? Track doubling is a must, as if the point of this is to make large rail systems easier, what large rail system doesn't use doubled track? Altho...

Re: [MOD 0.12.1] Supreme Warfare - 1.0.5

Yeah honestly the devs should have just removed game.player completely, not sure what the point in keeping it was, it just leaves loads of silent errors in scripts. The new update is live! With bug fixes and balance changes. Enjoy! :D Download Now hopefully your Multiplayer compatible thing is corre...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Smarter Circuitry

Hey if this can detect number of robots in a roboport then it solves the issue of resupplying a limited number of construction bots to outposts and you are my hero.
I'm going to test tonight and report back, but if it doesn't then consider this a suggestion!

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Factorio Maps

This doesn't work on MP maps even when loaded in SP :(

/edit I looked, the code half uses game.players[1]. the other half uses game.player. Search replaced game.player. with game.players[1]. and it works now on my MP map.

Re: [0.12.x] The Fat Controller. Remote train management

Not sure if this is mentioned yet:
GUI responsiveness seems very bad for in multiplayer: have to spam button, sometimes 10 plus times to view a train. Sometimes it just won't work at all. Other GUI works okay.

Re: Version 0.12.3

You can, as long as the game doesn't have any DRM. Like The Witcher games, you can just move or copy the steam/steamapps/common/Witcher (or whatever) folder to anywhere, even other computers, and it should work fine. This doesn't work any more. It used to, but Valve "fixed" it. Now you have to use ...

[0.12.3] [kovarex] Intermittent stuttering when placing objects.

I get varying amounts of slow down while placing entities, in SP and MP (but worse in MP). By stuttering I mean the entire game (sometimes including the placement cursor) will freeze for anything from 100ms to a second on certain types of item placement, especially the items that "connect" to others...

Re: Picker: A new tool for easily selecting items from inventory

Awesome. I am trying it now! Two issues I ran into:
If you build it to your inventory you can't put it in the shortcut bar because you can't move your mouse to the shortcut bar without it deselecting. And when I did it just disappeared when I tried to move it and I had to build another.

Re: Eyedropper - An easier way to pick items from your inventory

I'd actually just make it not pick unless your hand is currently empty, rather than add an eyedropper object; if you're already holding something, it won't drop it, and you can just hit q to deselect if you want to use the eyedropper effect. So the worst harm of unintended selections is you fill an...

Re: Eyedropper - An easier way to pick items from your inventory

You could add an item called eye dropper that if it is in your hand will perform selection otherwise won't. People can have this as a short cut in their toolbelt then. You could extend for other "tools" as well and turn the toolbelt into a set of tools! e.g. Eyedropper for items, eye dropper for con...

Fixed that script errors didn't stop the game, and it was possible to resume the game by pressing ESC. Is that a fix?! I know you probably don't like that some error reports may be erroneous when you can't guarantee a valid game state, but in MP with mods it is pretty useful to be able to skip the ...

I tried both versions, the one in the first post works okay, but in MP only player one gets to use it. The second player can create one but when they use it the first player gets the UI popup, and is then given the item from the second player. In the other version it immediately errors out when you ...
