Re: Friday Facts #336 - Offshore pump redesign

Add some variance to smoke. It looks really unnatural, especially in the video.

20 % faster lua with goto labels

According to this video recording of a talk from c++con, one can speed up LUA by small change in code - replacing large switch of functions with a table with goto label pointers, a generally unknown extension to c++. https://youtu.be/IAdLwUXRUvg?t=1879 (do not let his hat distract you :D) I do not k...

Re: Friday Facts #311 - New remnants 3

https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-311-station-walking.gif In this picture: the character has shadow as if the sun was directly above him/her while the train station remnants has shadow as if the sun was at 45 degrees. I think there were more entities in the game with inconsistent shadows.

convert map exchange string to map generator settings

Is it possible to generate the map-settings.json and map-gen-settings.json from map exchange string or directly in the gui? I know I can start a new game and upload the save to the server, but I would prefer to "acquire" the settings anyway, for multiple reasons. - It would help me to better underst...

RGB is for computers

Okay, I doubt it was intended but this was very funny. You don't get what you might expect by Goggling "HSV"... :lol:
OMG, LOL, I apologize :D
I meant hue-saturation-value color space ofc.

Re: night rendering with eye adaptation

Interesting, I don't think I've ever seen a game with a hue shift towards blue at night, and it was my understanding that we tend to perceive the rod "color" as just luminance (grey) ? The hue shift is very slight IRL so most games ignore it entirely. I have mentioned it for the sake of completenes...

night rendering with eye adaptation

TL;DR Use eye adaptation algorithm to make the game better visible during night. What ? Human eye consists of receptors of two types: rods (tyčinky) and cones (čípky). Rods are responsible for brightness and are active all day, but especially useful at night. Cones are responsible for colors and ar...

Re: Friday Facts #238 - The GUI update (Part II)

I am very pleased to hear that you are actually thinking about the CONTRAST.

blur the background and make it darker.
(for example, current chat is almost impossible to read!).

Re: [togos] [0.16.x] map*-settings.example.json out of sync with the UI

honestly, I have spend DAYS to only find out that this name is illogical.
terrain_segmentation SOUNDS like a frequency setting for changing eg. dirt and desert.
the water should use water_segmentation or water_frequency.
