Re: Friday Facts #249 - Dead end exploration

I want proposal #1. I also want to be able to click with the blueprint (or book) "in hand" on a library item to change the library item to what is in that blueprint. This allows me to grab a blueprint from the library, place it in the world, make changes to the world, 'copy' the world, and then repl...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Many people complained that loaders were OP, now you're complaining that bots are OP. The logical solution is to finish loaders! They need to require power, have logistics support, and of course shiny new graphics. For example, the extension where you would expand to other planets, start there over,...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I used to think about bots the same way. Solar panels too, never used either of them. Then I started playing the Seablock Mod. I started using bots to reduce the challenge of both learning the enormous and complex system those mods add, and the usual factory building. Since I was now using bots, I t...

Re: Request for Selection Tool Entity Filter

Better yet, let us specify a filter function that takes an entity and returns a color value, including nil. That way we can determine which entities show up as selected and in what color(s).

Re: Production and Electrical Network GUI Improvements

...So swapping one of them would mean that now the less important part of the graph is now on the more prominent left side. I concede that those are good arguments for leaving it alone. I might be in the minority when it comes to moments of confusion from their current order. I still want to see th...

Production and Electrical Network GUI Improvements

TL;DR Add peak values to the graphs. Swap production and consumption panes on one of them. What ? The Production and Electrical Network GUIs should show the peak value for the period being graphed, for both production and consumption. The Production GUI has production in the left pane and consumpti...

Re: Friday Facts #216 - Paving a path for the GUI update

... While you're playing with the GUI, can you give mod authors a way to create additional views when you click on an object? The biggest thing here is inserters. Customizing inserter positions in Bob's mods is quite ungainly right now (requiring a special key bind). It could be just an additional ...

Wireshark plug-in option #4: Build a c++ app which can generate the Lua code for the Wireshark API. This app can link to Factorio in its entirety, but is built and executed during the Factorio build process.

Re: [0.15.18][0.15.1] Adjustable Inserters Migrated content spam

Another idea I had pertains to the icon. I never use the "combo-select" pre-configure options, only the GUI. I always open the icon, click the override for GUI, place inserters, then uncheck and close the icon. This could be simplified by having two icons, one for "combo-select", and one for GUI. If...

Re: [0.15.18][0.15.1] Adjustable Inserters Migrated content spam

Speaking of replacing inserters, I think you could go further. There could be only two inserters: Burner and Powered. Everything else, filtering, stack size, and speed could be configurable. Perhaps there are tiers: Mk I, Mk II, etc. where each tier adds new functionality (speed, filtering, stack si...

Re: [0.15.18][0.15.1] Adjustable Inserters Migrated content spam

I figured out the migration 'problem'. It's my blueprint-storage.dat file which I copied over from another installation. So it's migrating my blueprints every time it loads/starts a game.

The solution, of course, is to remove the offending blueprints from that installation.

Autofill doesn't work with the new Uranium ammo when you drop down a turret. It shows, "Out of piercing rounds magazine" instead of putting in the Uranium rounds.

[0.13.x][v0.13.7] Bob's Logistics mod

Both the Logistics and Construction MK1 and MK2 brains (robot-brain-logistic, robot-brain-construction) have the same recipe. The combat robot brains look more correct, that is they follow a sensible progression (basic-circuit-board, circuit-board, etc.).

Re: Symmetric Inventory Key

I figured it out. There are two bindings:

Open Inventory
Close Window

These can be assigned the same key, which by default is both 'E'.
