Re: Friday Facts #256 - The little things 3

I feel like the belt immunity should just be part of the exoskeletons. Having a 1x1 equipment greatly nerfs all the rest of equipments because it will inevitably lead to empty spaces in your grid. From a suspension of disbelief perspective you could say it's the exoskeleton what actively compensates...

Re: Quicksave / quickload

I'm reviving this topic. It's reasonable to assume 4 years ago this was nowhere near enough of a priority, but now with 0.17 / 1.0 on the horizon this might be the time to review it. I'm playing a vainilla marathon rail deathworld and I've spent the last ~10 hours exploring the map looking for an ir...

Re: Version 0.16.8

I think fluid wagons should still take 3 tanks to build, for the sake of graphic consistency. It's not something that you mass produce anyway so it shouldn't affect balance. The total capacity is diminished because when building the wagon the tanks are reduced in size to fit the size limitations of ...

Re: New .17 GUI: Number Input System

why not leave the "+1 stack" text (instead of the actual stack size) ? I agree this would work pretty well for logistics. But then you have a different input for logistics, train schedules and circuit networks. At this point I'm talking more about personal preference than one way being better than ...

Re: New .17 GUI: Number Input System

Wouldn't 12 buttons sort it? [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][0][+-][backspace] Technically it would work, but that's way too many buttons and you are effectively putting what you already have in hardware (a keyboard) on your screen, which seems unnecessary to me. Why reinvent the wheel? Because we can ...

Better: [-10] [ - ] [ ] [ + ] [+10] b These buttons are already in my original post. If you right click [1], [2], [5] or [10] the buttons substract instead of adding to the field.

Re: rocket science stack size

A stack size of 2000 makes it cumbersome to control wether or not to launch the first few rockets automatically because there's *so much* white science in my trains (and i do have it limited to one stack per train) that it takes forever to actually fill the trains so they stop taking white science f...

Re: Friday Facts #201 - 0.15 Stable, but not really

I don't like the rail segment color lines. When I read about this plan on a recent FFF, I thought you'd re-purpose the '>>>' arrows you already had in place for showing rail direction with signaling and color it depending on the hovered rail segment. This implementation seemed so obvious to me and s...

[Posila][0.15.18] Disabled pumps still attach to fluid wagon

If a pump is disabled by the circuit network and next to a fluid wagon, it will still latch to the wagon. This means that if there's two pumps right next to eachother, but only one is allowed by the circuit network to pump, the disabled one may block the enabled one. This buggy behaviour is not cons...

Re: Beacon on/off via circuit network

I just don't see a reason why not to add this on a beacon. If there's a circuit condition on beacons to turn on/off, why not have it on assemblers too? and why not research labs, drills, chemical plants, refineries? This is very likely a scenario that the devs already forsaw and they chose to use t...

Re: Beacon on/off via circuit network

Maybe a circuit condition on/off switch? the issue I see is that if the devs implemented an on/off circuit network condition on beacons people would want them on basically everything else.

I'm pretty sure this has already been said in this thread, but 64-bit architectures have been around since 2004 . That's 13 years. THIRTEEN YEARS. That is a **very** long time in the gaming industry. Basically 64-bit computers have been widely adopted (not only available) for as long as we have been...

Re: Friday Facts #170 - Blueprint library GUI design and redesign

RE: flipping blueprints I feel like this is completely unnecessary. You can already rotate blueprints, which isn't the same I know, but if I need something flipped I'll just create another blueprint. For train stations, for example, i have at least 2 blueprints for each train station model, and it r...

Re: Friday Facts #175 - Programmable Speaker

I really hope the new speaker means it's more likely nuclear power will potentially have deadly consequences if not managed properly, since we'll be able to trigger alerts to let us know the reactor is headed for destruction with enough anticipation so we can prevent it in time.

How about a selection of colors (16, maybe 32) with a button for "custom color" with the current GUI? Or at least the colors we have signals for!
