Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

We know that there was a considerable amount of time spent playing WoW Classic in the past few weeks since the 0.17 stable was delayed so much. As far as optimizations of work go there is one good idea. Just try to do it like Coffee Stain Studio where only like 2 weeks were affected by holiday seaso...

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

WoW Classic is not only stealing our Factorio development speed but is is also preventing us to get a decently lengthy FFF.

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

From the loos of it is sounds like the landfill action is quite well designed. I like it however I have always thought it will be more stony texture like gravel or little rocks used to replace the water. It's great that the man taking care of fluid mixing likes it so much. However taking under consi...

Re: Version 0.17.60

If you aren't against mods: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Pre0-17-60Oil I'm not against mods in general, I'm against mods that fix bad design decisions. That is pretty good then.

Re: Version 0.17.60

But you need over twice as many fluid boxes to get more crude, not to mention about rail network load, so BOP may be not as UPS efficient compared to AOP as you may think. It was tested. That was pretty fast, do you have the test data somewhere to look at? https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?...

Re: Version 0.17.60

I'll just mention that the only real use for light oil was making efficient solid fuel previously. How much of it did you really spend for flamethrower? That is indeed true, but now that solid fuel isn't even used in Chemical Science, it makes both light oil and solid fuel near useless until you bu...

And that's why I said before that it seems like you're making these changes to make a change .

Re: Version 0.17.60

At least it makes my megabase builds easier since Advanced Processing is nearly useless now so I just need a tiny build for it and then can spam production of Basic Processing for all my petro needs and less fluid boxes.

Re: Version 0.17.60

[*]Deathworld marathon preset was made a little bit easier. What exactly was changed? Enemy evolution time factor is set to 150 (from 200), pollution factor is set to 10 (from 12). Attack cost modifier is set to 80% (from 50%). I hope that default death world is unchanged, since it was really fun t...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Current changes present in the oilchanges mod are good. The only problem of not being able to get enough efficient solid fuel can be easily remedied by adding solid fuel to rafinery output for basic oil processing. The good value is about 5 units every cycle. This would allow to power your steam pow...

[0.17.59] Volume level sliders reset after game restart.

It seems volume levels are not saved properly. They always reset to values I have set long time ago. No matter if quitting just after changing them from main menu or from saved game.

[0.17.59] Sound level getting lower when I zoom out.

It seems like engineer is flying of the ground even though it seems he is still grounded. As I zoom out the volume of sounds around engineer are getting lower to barely audible at max zoom out.

I liked the cracking ratio of 10-1-7. I wonder if the new ration will be as nice?
