Re: Caravans

You need to setup two of the base stations one on each end. Then you create "caravans" whish are creatures that will walk between the two points configuration on them. Place the caravan creature and set the start and end. They will then walk between the locations and carry 1 stack of items...

Re: Caravans

I have used them in the past. Brining product from a mining area into a smelting area. They did a good job at that but if there were train tracks, trains would hit them. Too many buildings they would get stuck etc. You really had to control how many guys you had transporting product and what things ...

All the details and getting all finalized and they're still deciding what all is in it. Unless they pull a hell of a lot of overtime I think we will win. Great to hear. Can't wait to pl...

Windows doesn't have the fork system call, which async saving is based on.
Thanks for the info, appreciated.

Re: Async auto save in multiplayer but not in singleplayer?? Why??

Not running a server. Single player I don't want to have to wait for saving. Reading through some of the questions / answers in that thread is appears for some reason they can't do non blocking saves in windows but they can on Mac / Linux. No real reason given, just that it can't be done. Really cur...

Async auto save in multiplayer but not in singleplayer?? Why??

I'm really trying to understand here why the more complicated multiplayer system has asynchronous saving of the game state but in single player we have to wait for the auto save.

Can a dev explain why we can't turn on async autosave in single player?

Re: Friday Facts #341 - Audio, Artillery, Attenuation

I love the sound of artillary, I just wish the actually firing sound was A LOT louder. It seems too quite for the power it's pushing out.

Re: How to start with Py + Bob + Angel

Step 1: Install Py
Step 2: Uninstall Bobs & Angels

They overlap each other and you lose the balance that the authors intended.

Either play Bobs & Angels or play Py ... they aren't designed or meant to work together.

Re: Project Announcement: Factorio Item Browser

What is the best way to get a mod added to the ones you have in the system? Pyanodon's Alien Life has been released and would be great to have that in here.

QOL: Research Queue Setting stays on

Once I turn on the research Queue in my options let it stay on. I shouldn't have to remember every time I start a game to get set it again.

That looks like an interesting generation model. Might be a little spread out, but not sure without actually checking it out in game etc.

Re: Resource gen settings

....... For example i think, to my very personal taste, that resources are way too close, even if it's the intended way originally. There's no real objective reasons for that, it's just a matter of taste at this stage : i love very long distance train outposts in general. ....... Totally agree with...

Re: Resource gen settings

Use RSO (resource spawner overhaul) that helps a lot with resource generation. Next I would turn off vanilla oil, Py has his own types and it doesn't make sense to have regular oil spawns with his. The rest of the resource settings you make the way you like. RSO will give you the base of what you ne...

There was a discussion in the PyAlienLife thread about biters with Py. I would like to have a discussion on biters with Py outside of that. So .. here are my thoughts I play with biters on in my Py suite. My last run I ended up having to disable them as they evoled too fast. There really is no way t...
