Re: [0.17.66] exoskeletons stopped working

Looks like that was the issue, really should have some better visual indications that they are disabled when viewing the exoskeletons in the suit.

Re: How do you handle power shortages?

I normally handle power shortages by building more power production. My defense does not rely on beeing powered all the time and i prioritize fixing power if inserters start slowing down (that is how i detect power issues). Sounds not optimal, I have various nuclear power plants that come online as...

In case your sulfuric acid runs out, your uranium mine is depleted, your nukes eat all your u-235, because what else will you do with the steam engines you already have?

Re: How do you handle power shortages?

Why have steam engines as emergency power when you can just have another nuclear power plant that comes online when cap is low?

You'll know you need to add more when the last plant starts coming on line too often.

Obviously factorio is 30+ and must be virgin, as only wizards can handle this game.

Logarithmic scaling for graphs

Add option to view production/fluid/etc graphs with logarithmic scaling.

Why? Because of obvious.

Set the evolution, science cost, etc at ridiculous settings on a railworld with lots of biters.

There are random numbers that are predictable and deterministic, there are random numbers that are unpredictable and deterministic and then there are random numbers that are unpredictable and nondeterministic.

Re: Friday Facts #296 - All kinds of bugs

NULL checks are critical and should be absolutely everywhere. And result in instant failure of the application, with full debugging trace. The first line of any new C function that I write is literally just a list of any pointer parameters with: assert(parameter != NULL); assert(parameter2 != NULL)...

Re: How to kill trees...

I keep a separate boiler purely for burning trees, disconnected from the main power grid. A couple of empty beacons drains the generated power uselessly, and eats wood pretty quickly. Essentially this, why would anyone need to come up with some clever scheme to get rid of trash when you can just ha...

Re: How many main bus lines do you generally use?

I've never been a fan of the central bus. Instead, I have a decentralized system where separate modular areas have inputs/outputs delivered/retrieved by train. This pretty much, as demand increases things get processed in dedicated places outside of the central location. Don't fall for the 'central...

Re: [Poll] "No research queue for you"

The only queue YOU need. I've been using science queuing for every single game that has science and supports research queuing. Need is different from want. I've never needed it.

Re: [Poll] "No research queue for you"

The only 'queue' that is actually needed is one that continues repeatable tech as that is a hinderance for late-game afk'ing.
