Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

It's not. To expand on this a bit (it's also explained elsewhere). It's not [easy to parallelise on chunk boundaries] because the factory behaviour can't be affected by the chunk boundaries (ie, blueprint translational symmetry). Rseding (and the team) has spent quite a lot of time fixing bugs wher...

Re: Add Duplicate Keybind Warning

That's how Blender does it and it's a lot less pleasant to use than it first sounds. They are two mutually exclusive solutions that are used in two different use-cases. You can't compare them as it's apples and oranges. One allows you to see what your current binding is conflicting with. The other ...

Re: Add Duplicate Keybind Warning

Perhaps a search by keybinding might be a solution? That way the user can search either before they bind or after they find it's an issue. Especially if they have no idea that a function already is bound and can't find what that function is called in the settings menu.

Re: Allow multiple item requests of the same item in player logistics requests

I personally would do many things in Factorio differently. Hence I love the game. Seeing peoples solutions to problems is like seeing peoples creations in Minecraft or other sandbox games :D Ahhh. No. The human eye is not good in tracking two changes at once. Sorry, I don't understand your point.

Re: Allow multiple item requests of the same item in player logistics requests

Just to prove it, there are some threads about finding items in it God yes, I would agree with this whole-heartedly. Sometimes it's impossible to find the existing item request. But the problem already exists. Additionally, any solution that would solve the already present issue would also solve th...

This seems like a completely different request
Yeah, it is; with an existing mod that solves the problem. Hence I left it out of the original post. But after Ssilk's post I thought I would put forward another use case.

Re: Allow multiple item requests of the same item in player logistics requests

The other use case is with spiders. At the moment I'm putting in many zero-zero requesting slots to keep their inventory clean. Eventually I create a base/template spider with ALL the items set to zero then I can copy that to any new spiders, editing in what they should be holding as separate reques...

Re: Show construction/deconstruction commands that are outside of a construction network

If you load up the two games and use /editor command to start the game running you will see the difference in the behaviour of the construction network. If the game wasn't iterating ov...

Re: Remove item selection from the item request slot editor

Yes, under the assumption that the number of times you reassign the type of item requested is less than the number of times you reassign the amount being requested. If it's the opposite way round an it turns out that no one ever changes the requested amounts, but instead continually uses a limited n...
