Re: Friday Facts #322 - New Particle system

im glad you are working on the lag associated with the destruction of the natives, i never liked having to deal with them in large maps, and in multiplayer it can result in a temporally unplayable game, though usually the person fighting dies due to the lag as well. but now i know why the game chugs...

Re: Friday Facts #321 - Countdown

9/25/20 is a good goal to release a solid 1.0 even if 0.17 is really close already. after release I hope you enjoy a good vacation and come back to work refreshed to add some additional content, even if it is just mods and bug fixes. and for those that move on to other projects, best wishes in your ...

Re: Friday Facts #320 - Color correction

as for adjusting the brightness of the game, and tring to make the entities and background "pop" more, i will reserve my final judgement till after i have played with the change... But i think the idea of being able to adjust the amount of "pop" (aka brightness and contrast) in game via sliders, is ...

Re: Friday Facts #318 - New Tooltips

I like the look of the new tool-tips, i would prefer that they not scroll vertically, but expand horizontally if they grow beyond the available vertical space. I would also like to see batch processes work on adjacent entities of the same item, like belts, walls, miners, solar panels, accumulators.....

Re: [0.17] please add proper blueprint library management

Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

oh i can see the biter attacks now, they will be so many when they cant reach you, and then finally they find a path and they overrun you with so many mobs stacking on top of each other, lets hope the separation logic doesn't allow them to stand on top of each other and only reduces the collision bo...

Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

for faster features and working bug fixes at the same time, do yourselves a favor and us too as players, if a new feature has some bug, the developer of the feature should probably switch gears and work on the bug fix for it as well. i know you have a member of your team that loves to fix bugs (rsed...

Re: Friday Facts #313 - Light at the end of the bug tunnel

any community code donations to improve the game is great for the game, if the community donates the code for free, and the game improves accordingly, then we all as players benefit, if wube gains additional sales as a result, it is a great side effect for the wube team. this does not mean that they...

i know it says incompatible with squeak through, but i mainly use squeak through because trees are such a pain to walk through, i dont suppose there is an alternative mod that will work but fix the tree issues? thanks for the mod.

Re: [Twinsen][0.17.65] While catching up to an MP game some buttons do nothing

i think instead of immediate disconnection, it should give a pop up, really disconnect, click yes, no, if they click nothing and finish connecting the pop up goes away. this would fix unintentional immediate disconnection when pressing ESC.

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

My 2¢ - Inserters should not chase items Would be ideal, so long as they only pickup the item needed, sushi belts should still be viable, if this is not the case, then it will make belts alot more complex, we will need extra long inserters (3 wide), or adjustable ones. - Blueprint import/export shou...

Re: Version 0.17.63

The change is listed in the 0.17.61 changelog because it was first introduced in that version and then reverted because it was causing crashes. This is why it did not end up in the 0.17.63 changelog. The implementation is the same as for any modding feature restriction. That's just how the modding ...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

“Rocket fuel is 10% more expensive with the same energy value.” “Move Rocket fuel to a chemical plant.” Rocket fuel was already losing energy value before, so it just gets a bit worse, with productivity modules still being able to turn it into a gain. The gain however becomes rather small and I hav...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

i think this is a better decision about the oil changes than was previously, but there was a mod out for changing chemical science to use heavy instead of gas, an interesting idea for sure, perhaps you looked at it and decided to just go with the gas straight up and bump heavy a bit to fix our need ...
