Re: [1.1.12] Alt icons on furnaces don't show sometimes

I believe they only show for furnaces that are currently working. It looks like your steel furnaces are backed up and probably full (100 steel), and that's why the icons don't display.

Re: [1.1.12][Minor] Searching controls settings reveals items in collapsed categories

It's actually quite common that I'll look for something and I'll collapse categories I think it's not in. But then, not finding it, I'll use search. At that point, I want to search to show me where it really is, even if I collapsed a category thinking it wasn't there.

Re: [1.1.12][Minor] Searching controls settings reveals items in collapsed categories

I'd rather see results from collapsed categories than search for an item and think it doesn't exist when really it's just in a collapsed category.

Re: Add a flush/purge option for roboports to be vacated

You can use a logistics request to set the maximum number of bots that will stay in your inventory. The rest will go to trash, where they can be redeployed assuming you have a requester chest for them that deposits them in a roboport. (For example, my main robo network is set to autoscale, adding ne...

Thank you for some context.

The trouble is that in a train stop name, there isn't any context.

"Retarded" is a foul word in my local variety of English. It seems less taboo in the States[...]
I'm from the US. It's offensive there also.

The devs already made a pass long ago to remove offensive names. It seems this one was simply overlooked.

Re: Quote accuracy

Unfortunately, after someone has been quoted verbatim, there's also nothing stopping that person from editing his/her post to say something different. So if a quote doesn't match the supposed original, there's no way to know which is correct. Here's an example where I quoted, and then the original p...

Re: Don't make a spot on the map when an atomic bomb is used

Maybe the spot would look better if it were somewhat more nuanced. Right now it's basically a perfect oval and it's all the same color, or at least it seems to be. If it had more ragged edges and more color variation, maybe it'd be easier to accept as a new permanent part of the landscape? I'm not s...

Re: Belt Labels

If you could mark belts with labels, this would be inconsistent with the rest of the UI where those labels (e.g. on assembly machines) are automatic. If the labels on belts were automatic, it would impede visibility. A belt could carry a lot of different things. How many labels would it need? If I c...

Really?
No, but once Spidertron comes along, the tank isn't that useful anymore by comparison. But the tank is useful until then, which can be a good long while.

Re: [1.1.5] slow stickers - player and spidertron

maybe you could have at least read philip's report instead of coming along to act like he's not experiencing a problem. I did. I don't agree that it's a problem. I play with philip - he's not one of those who "wants the game to be easier". Then I don't get why he wants this change. this is an issue...

well, maybe leave discussion to those who have :twisted: If it's changed in the game, it affects everyone, not only those who would find the change helpful, but also those who would find the change unnecessary given the Spidertron is already extremely powerful. It makes the game easier for everyone...

Re: Don't make a spot on the map when an atomic bomb is used

Thanks, BicycleEater and Deadlock989; that makes sense as to why it's like this.

Still, I imagine the Factorio team has tackled much more difficult technical challenges than having nuked ground not look like nuked ground on the map.

Don't make a spot on the map when an atomic bomb is used

I like how the atomic bomb makes a big dead spot on the ground when it's fired, as if to emphasize that such brutal destruction ought not be forgotten.

But why, oh why, does it also make a big dead spot on the map?

Re: [1.1.5] slow stickers - player and spidertron

Do people actually have Spidertrons destroyed because of the slowness, though? If you have your Spidertron packed full of explosive rockets, and especially if you're also riding inside wearing a Power Armor MK2 packed full of lasers, and especially if you also have the Spidertron itself packed full ...

That's sad, because blueprinting before bots is often a frustrating experience.

In 1.1.9 this limit will no longer apply.
So did you actually do the change to 64 bit type? :)
Yeah, hopefully it's not just a 32-bit number now, because you know somebody somewhere is going to build over a billion solar panels and hit that limit too. :lol:
