Re: [DEVS please] Pipe to pipe transfers, are they hardcoded?

I am impatient. Also, not sure the fluid mechanics themselves are changing in 0.17, only the optimizations. That's what i take away from the FFF. There was speculation in the FFF if the fluid mechanics do change or not. Dominik sounded vague enough about the subject that i'd guess they do. Also, mo...

Re: [DEVS please] Pipe to pipe transfers, are they hardcoded?

It's been quite a while since i experimented with this, but i remember i succeeded at making fluids flow really fast (i.e. like 100 times faster). I don't remember the details, but the fluid itself has some related values: pressure_to_speed_ratio = 0.4, flow_to_energy_ratio = 0.59, All base game flu...

Re: [Request] Summary field newline support

I want that too. Single-line multi-language descriptions are ugly: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/ScreenshotHotkey
Alternatively i'd be happy with full multi-language support for the whole mod portal too ;).

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

They can take from some orientations of underground belts, although I forget which ones. Whilst they do pick up better from some orientation of underground belts than others, they can take from every orientation if the contents of the belt are moving slowly enough. Well yes, I meant at full speed (...

How and why does this improve gameplay?
Any sort of loss can and will simply be countered by building larger power plants. The three power options fuel, solar and nuclear are all dirt cheap to expand. With nuclear probably being cheapest.

Re: [0.16.51] Assemblers remain fast even after removing faster-assemblers mod.

Most likely the process is saved in the machine and when the mod is removed the total progress needed changes resulting in it having several crafts worth of progress already saved. I originally discovered the bug while testing circuit build layouts, which included running the layout for at least eq...

The half-brokenness of the big pole fits very nicely. Maybe the substation should be a bit more rusty too. Ju...

German "Notice" message dialogue has erroneous title.

I just saw someone post this: https://forums.factorio.com/download/file.php?id=40900 In English the window title of error messages is "Notice". A "Notiz" in German is a memo (i.e. like one found on a post-it), the window title should be "Hinweis", or more context aware "Fehler". I'm a bit suprised h...

Re: Pump does not work in some positions

Not really enough info to be sure, but I think I recall an issue of pumps not connecting properly if the station isn't straight. This. Pumps can not connect to trains if the station has curved rails. It won't work regardless of what you try. Curved stations sadly aren't supported for anything. They...

With this picture, the game should be sold in a box! And yes, concerning the picture I was thinking in the box of a physical copy of the game.

Re: Friday Facts #270 - HR Substation & Save/Load overview

And the devs' answer has always been "No". It doesn't mean it will never be "Yes", but that's highly unlikely, because the gains (additional realism and complexity) are likely to be too expensive (significative hit on performance, hence a de-optimization, and lowering mechanically how big a factory...

Re: Mining over multiple infinite resource entities - bug?

@Moderation: Move to bug reports? Anything in the entity-info-panel on the right is entirely up to the engine, nothing you can do about it (except bug reports). As far as i know angels has the infinite tiles randomly sprayed into normal ores, so it might simply be very uncommon to have a standard mi...

That GUI tool looks very nice, and i greatly appreciate you not withholding it from us modders. What does it show btw, if part of a style is manually overwritten? I.e.

Re: Will not download the maps for multiplayer

Does this happen on every server? I.e. have you tried joining a random public server (preferrably one physically close to you) to verify?
I remember there was a bug when the server sets the donwload speed limit too low, but don't rememeber if that's fixed for 0.16.51 or 0.17.

I'm assuming the version you released the other day?
The version is irrelevant. The bug happens when the mod is disabled. And there exist no force bonusses that could affect assemblers even if i wanted to.
