[0.16.36] Strange cliff generation

The map generator seems to generate cliffs in the starting area and not outside it if cliff settings are set to "Very low" frequency and "Big" size.

[kovarex][for 0.17][0.16.27] "usage_priority = "terciary""

In the accumulator definition in entities.lua, starting from line 8342, we have the following: { type = "accumulator", name = "accumulator", ... energy_source = { ... usage_priority = "terciary", ... }, ... }, Seems like "terciary" should be "tertiary" here?

Re: [16.x] Achievement track state is not saved.

Looks like that this only happens in modded saves. If I disable mods, my past achievements show up properly again.

Add a warning icon for entities that are out of heat

We have warning icons for when an entity doesn't have fuel or electricity, but we don't have one for heat. Something like this maybe?

Re: Heat Exchanger Sprites

I just found out that heat exchangers are boilers, which just use heat energy. I wonder if I can make a mod that does this combining.

Re: Heat Exchanger Sprites

Unlike your examples, boilers and heat exchangers are almost identical machines by appearance and size and interface. There's very little difference between them. The steam turbine can be considered a direct upgrade to the steam engine.

Re: Heat Exchanger Sprites

I don't think that you can compare boilers to ammo. Heat exchangers aren't a direct upgrade to boilers because they lack the coal burning function. Instead, it's a niche machine only useful in nuclear plants. In Factorio you'd typically get "necessities" like heating water with heat pipe tacked onto...

Re: Heat Exchanger Sprites

The recipes are vastly different and due to the temperatures reachable that makes sense, the boiler is just a few stone and pipe but the heat exchanger is twice as much pipe, 100 copper presumably to simulate a heat sink and 10 steel for the containing of all the added pressuer and building steam t...

Re: Heat Exchanger Sprites

Maybe the two entities should be merged? Give boilers a heat pipe interface in addition to coal insertion, coal burning can only reach 100°C while the heat pipe interface reaches the higher temperatures. Then the heat exchanger can be discarded.

Rename Programmable Speaker

I think that the name and description of the speaker could be improved. The "programmable" doesn't really mean anything since everything in Factorio is programmable, like how we don't have a "Programmable power switch" but "Power switch". Come to think of it, since the speaker actually depends on th...

Re: Make green science be enabled by Automation 2

My point is that the green science cannot be manufactured with the resources available at game start. It only becomes possible with Automation 2. It would be more straightforward to new players if there was only one science type to worry about. You don't actually need to worry about the green scienc...

Re: Make green science be enabled by Automation 2

The point of science is to manufacture it. Or are you going to craft 200 green sciences manually to research red belts?

Make green science be enabled by Automation 2

You need the blue assembling machine to manufacture inserters, which green science needs. So it doesn't make much sense to have green science enabled from the beginning. So I think the green science should be unlocked when the blue assembling machines are. I think this would help new players better ...

Re: Friday Facts #208 - Tips and tricks improvement

I think the tips & tricks could benefit from a better browser. Right now they're all just crammed in a sequence and finding a specific one was tedious. A list or tree view beside the tips would improve it, IMO, especially if more tips & tricks get added to it.

Maybe some kind of border?
