Re: Friday Facts #252 - Sound design & Map editor

this new editor sounds amazing, the thing I would be most interested in using it for and I very much hope can be easily done is advance the simulation tick by tick to finetune and experiment with circuit network logic, especially to figure out where various off-by-one errors arise in sensitive one-t...

Research Progress Bar more information

it would be nice if something like hovering over the research bar in the top left would show what percentage the research is finished and how many more science packs are required.

it would be a nice quality of life thing.

Re: on_player_placed_wire / on_player_put_item_in_chest

Fair enough, that does seem a lot easier to manipulate for my purposes, what are the odds that something like wires_to_connect will be implemented?

on_player_placed_wire / on_player_put_item_in_chest

I would like to request an event: on_player_placed_wire contains: player :: the player that placed the wire wire :: the type of wire placed end_point_1 :: one of the entities connected by the wire end_point_2 :: the other entity connected by the wire circuit_network :: the circuit network this wire ...

Re: trouble with infinite-use wires

@sigor Not sure if you disagree with me or with the post above you, but either way I don't understand what point you are trying to make with your picture. I get that it depicts a mess, but who suggested anything that would make a mess? @slimey While that would work to solve the problem with red and ...

on_wire_placed

context: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=48270 it would be nice to have an event that triggers when a wire is (manually) placed, right now the only event that activates when you place a wire is on_player_cursor_stack_changed, which doesn't let you distinguish between whether you put...

trouble with infinite-use wires

I am trying to make a mod that makes red wires, green wires and copper cables not be consumed when drawing wires (obviously the costs of red and green wires would be changed to compensate). my first idea was to check if I can make the wire items not be consumed when they are "placed", but my assumpt...

Re: {0.15.9] Rock too rare?

no. the only science pack that costs stone in any way is production science packs, which costs 10 stone brick for 2 science packs, 10 stone bricks can be made by 10 stone (or 8.333.. stone with productivity modules on smelters) or in other words, 3.8666... stone per production science pack. you thin...

filter inserter not used for any late-game item

before the science rework, filter inserters were used for blue science, but that is no longer the case. I suggest changing the recipe for stack filter inserters from: 1 stack inserter + 5 electronic circuit to: 1 filter inserter + 15 iron gear wheel + 16 electronic circuit + 1 advanced circuit (aka:...

Re: Little Quirks

tech labs should be able to be hooked up to circuit networks and allow you to do 2 things: read: what technologies are researched, which technology is being researched, what science packs are required to research it and the current progress on the current technology. set: which technology is being/t...

Construction robots don't deconstruct trees that block order

...but they should in my opinion. Issue: many hours after setting up blueprint orders for extending my solar panel farm I came back to check on the progress, as it turned out it was completed... almost.

Re: Performance optimization - post your saves

Background: I decided to mine out every single resource deposit in a large area to set up the core of my future mega base without having to worry about building on top of resources. to do this the resources would obviously need to be stored somewhere (or destroyed, but I don't like waste, which is t...
