Re: Friday Facts #267 - Experiments, Explosives & Extended tags

The tags seem very useful, especially the map ping. I'll finally be able to precisely point out which block of instant noodles I'm complaining about to my friend.

Also, petition to bring back the pickaxe.

Re: Friday Facts #262 - Hello my name is: Compilatron

I like how Compilatron has a little floppy drive on the front.

It is also adorable, and I hope it will exist in freeplay.

Now we just need the spidertron.

That one does look a lot better indeed.

I didn't even remember pipe shadows were a thing...

Can you tell what was better in it, other than the sharpness?

Also, this one should be just as sharp.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Realistic Reactors

I have made some tweaks to the hr-sprite for the tower, now it looks a lot better:

On a side note, guess who remembered to save the original blender file and now only has a 720x720 render of the tower to work with.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Realistic Reactors

the substructure of the normal resolution tower looks better somehow. I know, I'm not quite sure what is off with the high-res one, but will try to fix it at some point. i made images for the reactor and breeder reactor by layering the vanilla reactor onto it. maybe it's not perfect but i would lov...

Note that it's a bit low-res, will make a high-res one soon

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

I disagree with the removal of the queue.

For older players with 800+ hours, it is just tedious selecting each research manually.



Also, Spidertron when?

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

Very nice! I like that you got the button order the correct way.

The exchange string window looks a bit off on top of the adjustments IMO

Re: Friday Facts #245 - Campaign concept

The line between production 2 and engine has a one pixel offset. As a hobbyist graphics guy, this would make the game literally unplayable. On a (more) serious note, I like the fact that you will research the science packs separately, and that you won't have to restart in the campaign. I might even ...

We were actually also taught to write the seven like that, so the thing with one makes even less sense

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

People who write uppercase I and lowercase l the same are doing it out of brevity, and they tend to write the number 1 the same way. Fun fact: in elementary school we were taught that you should write the number 1 without the little mark so it doesn't get confused with 7... Needless to say, I start...

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

A seven segment font looks really factorio-y for the numbers. This one is a bit odd with text though.

Might be great with monospace for the text?

You should have used a dot-matrix font: https://www.google.com/search?q=dot+matrix+font
