What about half-full cancelled trains?

Trains loaded with material are cancelled by LTN and returned to depot. then they are reassigned and the train goes to a station with an unfiltered miniloader that proceeds to pollute my factory. How do I get the system to recognize that it's either (a) cancelling too soon or (b) still got stuff in ...

TL;DR

What?

Tool tip over icon could show icon name.

Why?

In big mods like Pyanadons it's hard to tell crude oil from molten lead, etc.

Why do you want it

Clarity prevents disaster!

Filter player pickup quickbar slot

TL;DR A filter box, like those in filter-inserters, that appears in the bottom right part of the quickbar. When an item appears in the bar it is the only thing the player will pick up. (normally by pressing the F key.) What? Grabbing one type of item off tightly packed belts is a pain. to be able t...

Merge Alt key behavior with "show recipe icons" on map

TL;DR merge "show recipe icons" on map view and Alt key. What? "show recipe icons" and Alt key are doing the same thing at two different zoom levels. Merge them into a single toggle. Why? Because the actions are very nearly the same thing but only one can be found through the GUI...

Re: Industrial Revolution 3

Hello! Restarted and doing much better. I have only one question at this time: how do i use the hot water ore washing recipe? I mean, where do I get hot water from? Hot water does not appear as a separate ingredient. Reading the description of geothermal exchanger it appears I can clean polluted ste...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

speaking of horizontal and vertical... Quality adds great breadth of play (more of the same) without adding any depth of play (new mechanics). Will make the UI much more complicated, but only for DLC players, so no harm done. Grinding for epic loot belongs in bad games that offer to sell a shortcut....

Re: Industrial Revolution 3

Hello! Loving the mod. Second attempt. So far 4d4h14s. What am I supposed to do with all this petroleum? I am still running my base on coke+steam just fine. I have more than enough plastic. I can't make it into fuel for vehicles. Does using a petrochem generator take precedence over a steam generato...

Dream bigger

Insanity beyond the limits of the current engine... Right now the base game is excellent and is just long enough to cover everything about building for scale. Mods like nullius and B+A take that idea and run with it by making more recipes, more process control. What's really new in there? Nullius ad...

Re: Land a rocket

imho landing is cooler.

Besides! It's a reward for people who keep playing after the official end. Ever play a super mario game made in the last decade? the "win" screen is in the middle, there's still so many challenges left to play.

Land a rocket

TL;DR
Play the rocket animation in reverse. Reclaim most of your rocket cost, -fuel.
What?
lowers to-launch cost permanently. Must come after rocket launch. Therefore could be unlocked with space science.
Why?
If we can do it, Factorio person can do it.
