Noise expression error causes crash on Preview

With a certain set of mods, when starting a new game and pressing Play, I get an in-game error popup reading, "Undefined named noise expression 'control-setting:cold:size:multiplier'". I can dismiss the error and continue using the game (though the new game is not started). If I press Prev...

Improve tooltip for recipes that produce <1 of one thing

This isn't relevant in vanilla, or I'd put it in Bug Reports, but mods sometimes create recipes where there's a single product with only a chance of being produced. When there are multiple products, the recipe tooltip displays the percentage chance of each thing being produced. However, if there's o...

Re: [0.18.34] Mod update UI, selected item changes while updating

Came here to report this (for whatever that's worth). I was trying to click on the Changelog button for one of the mods that was being updated -- just updated everything, and then got curious about the details for one of them.

Attempt (just hover) to place a ghost that overlaps both the placed ghost and the marked-for-deletion building Expected: Entities which do not block placement should not be highlighted with red.

[0.17.79] Mods - Updates - Changelog shows wrong version by default

I'm running 0.17.79, and (to take an example) I have LTN at version 1.11.8. When I view its info in the Manage tab, everything is fine: the info panel shows Version 1.11.8, and when I click Changelog, it shows the 1.11 changes with a dropdown to select older versions. However, on the Updates tab, th...

Crash

I just started my first PyBlock game, with only the required mods and no others, on Factorio 0.17.79. I saved the game, and now that I'm coming back to it, the game is crashing about 8 seconds after I load it. This happens even if I make no inputs, and also if I stop my two stone furnaces from produ...

Re: Search Labels in Mini-Map

I second this suggestion. I don't know why you'd only want to search the mini-map, though. The search should be on the full map.

Also, you should be able to search by map notation icon, as well as text.

Unless I'm missing something the research trap is way worse than that. I don't think I can even build the building that produces pressurized air until the "Diamond 3" tech, which is forever away. I spent precious green science points on Filtration, etc in hopes of getting more coal gas fo...

Re: Cannot join my own headless server. Steam version [15.40]

I had this problem in 0.16.51. Leoliuos's solution worked: I quit Steam, restarted the headless server, started Steam, and now when I run Factorio normally (but with no-log-rotation) I can connect. Is there a command-line option that could be used to start the headless server without needing to log ...

I SEVERELY object to the proposed Q/blueprint let go solution. In an average 30 minute chunk, I might use blueprints 50 or more times -- that would be a heck of a lot of clicking some option box! ...I reuse the same BP multiple times for small things...
