Re: Friday Facts #325 - New Explosions and Particles

- shooting particles (like on roboport) should be more on the side the entity is shooted Seconded, this looks really weird to have bullets sparking off the back of an entity. Since you don't have 3d models but 2d sprites (if I'm not mistaken), it's not possible to know which areas/pixels are reacha...

Re: Headless server command-line pause

Seconded, I'd like to be able to pause when I fail at becoming an admin at my own server and someone is taking forever to catch up (then I pause to let them get in)

I guess a workaround is setting the speed very low

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

As someone continuously struggling with performance issues (I like optimizing things in megabases, not the manual work in the beginning), I am very much looking forward to these optimizations :D

The sounds, I dunno, they sound kinda weird to me. Not yet sure if that's just because it's new.

Hi, will there be a t-shirt with printed factorio base?
I remember some time ago you had this big banner https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blo ... 9-img3.jpg
It would be great to have a t-shirt with this huge base printed on it.
I would love this too!

And taking into account that sizes are different in between countries, could you post the length between shoulders as a refference. Hmm, doesn't it show this for you? Or is the "A" measurement not what you're looking for? https://snipboard.io/28rC03.jpg (This particular screenshot is from the ladie...

Re: Version 0.17.47

I still have 0.17.54 for Linux in case that helps anyone, that might be compatible with the modpack for 0.17.47. (Of course, I would require some proof of ownership of the game, I'm not offering warez here.)

I have 5 meteor defense installations. Rarely get a meteor strike that hurts anything. If that helps.
I guess it confirms that it is a bug and that a few meteor defense installations should usually do the trick, but for some reason not in my save.

Re: [0.17+] Space Exploration WIP

The meteors seem to come way too often for me. In the intro I read they're supposed to be rare, but I get like 20 per in-game day, all over my factory. I first tried defending myself with 4 Meteor space defense installations (with ammo, charged full) but they don't even try to stop a single meteor. ...

Re: Friday Facts #310 - Glowing Heat pipes

all the realism doesn't matter as long as its fun and looks good, realism is just a tiny bonus. Agreed. People often go "but that's not realistic" when that is not actually the goal of a game. That said, I actually want to comment on this to say the opposite :D Namely, one of the reasons I fell in ...

Re: Wich game version runs your server?

0.17.32. We play in evenings after work and dinner. I don't want to spend time and effort every time on downloading a new zip on the server, unpacking it, renaming directories, and testing whether everything works without any changes. Then later, the upgrade becomes so large, that the bottleneck is ...

Agreed as a computer scientist as well. We know screen colors in Kelvin, too. I, too, think it's slightly too bright, but someone made a fair point that it needs to be visible during the day. Perhaps the brightness is okay, but I liked someone else's suggestion of making it less wide instead (just a...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

I think you should have to defend your railway lines, power poles, etc. but... you do have to? I'm running double or sometimes triple power lines to outposts and fix poles whenever one gets destroyed. Railways are less bad, but they destroy those too when they're scrambling near the base. Should I ...

Re: Friday Facts #308 - Not stable quite yet

That's ridiculous. Well, hundreds (thousands?) of people backed the game and were included in the list of default station/locomotive/radar names, but only a handful contribute in a way to get a special mention in the FFF the way Boskid did. I don't know how valuable it was to the game, but based on...

As a software guy, a "breaking" change is just something you have to change dependencies for (your base is dependent on Factorio's recipes, and since it's an alpha, of ...
