Re: [14.21] Failed to Create Display [Unresolved]

Has Factorio been optimized for DX12? No, Factorio uses DX9 still :( That could be the issue My drivers are TOO up-to-date, lol However, DX9 should still work and not create this failure? Strange. Aw well, I guess I could try to slug through with low UPS until I can figure out how to get it to run ...

Re: [14.21] Failed to Create Display [Unresolved]

It's not 'quite' resolved because running it with opengl is excruciatingly slow. When I try to run my factory (not a megabase, does not have level 3 modules yet), it barely runs whatsoever.

I'm not sure there's a way to resolve it at this point. Has Factorio been optimized for DX12?

Re: [14.21] Failed to Create Display

How do you set the force opengl in game properties?
Edit; Nvm, set it. Going to try now.

Re: Top 100 games played on Steam right now...

I have to ask; is it any wonder that Factorio is so popular? There's so much to do in it and so many great mods that add new items to make production lines to. After that, there's bobs, angels, etc to keep the game alive.

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Science Overhaul Mod A.K.A Science Cost Tweaker

I was wondering how this mod would play out in 0.15. Do you have an idea of what you want to replace all these science packs with? Military, production, etc, it looks like science packs are going to become very complex and I love how instead of being able to plot down some small production lines and...

Re: If real life can do it, so can Factorio...

What kind of builds would people use this for? I think it could be a good way to sort materials without using power. Like if 2 ore reserves are next to one another, you can help keep the lines clean even if the biters seize the power plant. Although it would be best for compressing belts. Lets' say ...

Re: Future Nuclear Power / Dirty Mining Mechanics

If we get nuclear power, I think we need Thorium instead of Uranium. Thorium is better, isn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Thorium is less of a waste hassle and is more common than uranium. Uranium is more iconic, sure, but Thorium is usually better, overall.

Re: [14.14] Logistics vs. Autotrash

I think the autotrash function should check the current requested values for the items and, if they're bigger than the values set on autotrash, those values should be used instead. items_to_trash = autotrash_amount(copper) if (request_amount(copper) > items_to_trash) items_to_trash = request_amount...

Re: Steam Friends?

I would say try not to 'bug' them about it. Talking to them about it or answering questions, sure. See if they're interested in the game in casual conversation if you think they may enjoy the game. Just don't go door-to-door :lol:
