Update on close (without Steam)

Currently the game the popup about updating the game is shown after it has been completely loaded. Especially when a number of mods are enabled, starting the game one time can already be a bit of a wait... So often I find myself skipping the update, thinking I will go through this process when I fin...

Re: [0.18.41] picking up new blueprint book crashes game

Same on OSX. It happens as well when using the shortcut (Command+B). Importing a blueprint book from an import string works, so if you happen to have another blueprint. So for convenience, here's a string for an almost empty blueprint book: 0eNp9kNEOgjAMRf+lz1uC+oDuV4whRQpZhG7ZCpEQ/l2mAWOMvvU257a3na...

Re: [0.17.34 OSX] Mission Control shows black copies of game when restarting to apply mods

This still persists (in 0.18.9). It also creates these black empty screens when restarting for an update from within Factorio (not Steam). It seems it's just an empty fullscreen desktop, left behind. When you hover over the (black) desktops in misson control, you will see the exit full screen button...

as for the landfill graphic, it does indeed look better, it would be nice if some other suggestions were added as well, - like the ability to dig it back up if we needed to, aka water fill Removing land(fill) would create the possibility of having a moat and a "drawbridge" as a form of de...

[wheybags] [0.17.36][OSX] Version in about is wrong (super minor)

Very tiny detail I stumbled upon by accident: The about version from the version menu (factorio>About Factorio) is stuck at 0.17.9. The version in the about, reached from the main menu show the correct version.

When I use the ghost station way of traveling to some place (Ctrl+Click on station/rails) and my train is in manual mode, the train continues to the next station in the itinerary, a couple of seconds after arriving at the ghost station. This behaviour would be expected for a hijacked train that is r...

After restarting factorio, that 2nd control setting has changed to RETURN as well. Also when making the first key KEYPAD ENTER and t...

Re: [0.15.40] Mac crash on update to 0.16.x

Happened to me after a direct upgrade from 0.15.40 to 0.16.4.

The first time the progress bar went up to 60%. Now it keeps going to just 42% (coincidence? ;) ). It finishes "cropping bitmaps" and crashes during "loading sprites". I attached the log file, just in case.

When playing multiplayer on my own server, sometimes the message "Server (<server>) is saving the game" appears. Is the <server> tag configurable? I don't see anything along those lines in the template configuration file.

Re: Factorio Friday Friday Facts #203 - Logistic buffer chest

As cool as the buffer chest sounds, I've always felt that what the game needs is a passive requester chest. To keep the place tidy and the storage chests empty, I like to recycle as much as possible. Deconstructing a full belt will just fill up the storage chests (with coal, for example). I always l...

Re: Liquid wagon partitioning and filtering

Technically I guess using valve symbols should be the way to go for liquids.

But I guess it's not very intuitive. The chain symbol doesn't make a lot of sense, but the expressed state is very clear.
