The ghost rail planner tries to blow up the cliffs even if the cliff explosives technology is not researched or even disabled by mod.
:idea: The new rail planner should take it into consideration and path around the cliffs in those cases.
This is what I came here to post. Seconding.

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I feel the logistics tab would benefit a lot from an option to temporarily turn off the logistics trashing (and maybe requesting too? It's super annoying any time I die and have logistics requests set because I'm too slow to escape my fast bots who refill my current inventory which was already full...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I'm concerned about how incredibly tiny that search button is on the mock up. I thought that too, although you can always use ctrl+f. The button is probably there more as a hint that that you can do so than anything else. I would assume the tooltip also tells you the shortcut. If not it should. I a...

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

If you're not going to have a queue, then can you please make the 'research finished' screen be less of an interruption? It's really frustrating to be working on something closely and suddenly he snapped into a very different context. Notify me that research is done, but let me choose when to go in...

I am extremely entertained that the main argument provided in favor of keeping the research queue is player choice or keeping it an option when the also-optional choice to use mods exists. :lol: This should not be overlooked: If the dev team ultimately doesn't believe this is worth putting in the b...

Re: Friday Facts #247 - Pricing and its exploits

My initial reaction to Satisfactory was "This looks stupid why would I want to play a Factorio clone in first person view."

Then I watched the trailer and my opinion immediately changed to "I WANT IT NOW."

The many crossing branches in the Science Tree paths that occur when you have images like https://eu2.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-245-science-pack-technologies-cropped.png are visually confusing.

I hope this feature will support aliases either via modding or some other sort of easily user accessible interface. Then someone can make a mod where we can just do common items as [item=IronPlate], moddable items like [item=CobaltOre], or custom community tags like [xterm] showing a tiny dude being...

Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

You've made the right choices regarding crash logs. You'll never make everyone 100% happy no matter what you do, but this will make the largest number of people happy in the long run.

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I tend to use bots in the medium to late game. I'd describe myself as a complexity-loving revamp-mod-using wanna-be Megabaser who never actually finishes any megabases. I also don't really enjoy using bots as much as I enjoy using belts, but I use them anyways. Why? Here are some of my thought proce...

Re: [0.13.0] Terrain segmentation

Another thing i've noticed is if I set enemy spawns to low or very low everything, but starting area to "none" it's as if the biter settings got turned to very high. That sounds reasonable because if you don't have a starting area there's no ramp of difficulty. It's more of a mod option, like the o...

Re: [0.13.1] Map generation process is very strange

I went and looked at 0.12.35 map generation in order to compare it to the 0.13.x map generation. These maps are all generated with a fresh install of 0.12.35 using seed 1946374888. Due to the changes in map generation code the seed does not and is not expected to be identical or even similar between...

Re: [0.13.1] Map generation process is very strange

ytsejam, I noticed that your maps aren't quite generated like mine so I generated my own set off of my seed. Your starting area and lakes don't generate identically and then grow. They ought to if you're using identical settings between the different map settings which is what got me noticing the ch...
