Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

I really like the concept of introducing quality to the game. However, I don't like it that the recycler only outputs 25% of the resources. I understand that reducing it to this amount is necessary in order to prevent allowing you to create a production loop that gives you more resources than you in...

Re: We support Ukraine

In 1994, after the Soviet Union was dissolved, the Ukraine was the world's third largest nuclear power. In the Budapest Memorandum , the Ukraine agreed to give up all of its nuclear arsenal, after Russia (and several other nations) promised to respect its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Since...

Re: Display train's ID number on scheduler UI

I bet the train Id is not just something they show but somthing that is used internally and if you alllow user to change the value it would introduce a lot of problem of for exemple a user using the same Id twice even though the Ids are supposed to be unique I don't consider this a problem, but rat...

Re: Display train's ID number on scheduler UI

The Train ID would be a lot more useful if it were possible for the user to supply his own Train ID, maybe even encode properties of the train in the Train ID (for example whether it is an iron or copper train), which can then be read by the circuit network. This has been suggested in the following ...

Re: Light rail

You can use a single-direction rail, separate from your main rail intersections, but you then either have to make a double header (terrible accel, absolutely requires rocket fuel) or loops to return (bad accel & lots of space). (side note: railway turntables would be fun, but obviously a pain t...

Re: FFF-309 / Robots

I like the idea of bots slowing down in crowded areas. That way, the throughput of bots would be significantly reduced, making belts more important. Taking that idea further, it would be nice to be able to define air lanes that the bots should follow. That would make pathfinding a lot more work (i.e...
