Re: [0.17] Make Pipette also copy recipe

I don't support the suggestion to copy the recipe of an assembler whose source of a pipette has one. We already have the shortcut of copying the recipe using Ctrl-C, and narrowly upgrading pipette functionality would be confusing and leading to an endless string of requests to further extend it: If ...

Re: CloudSync blueprint ON by default

The biggest trouble happens when someone thinks "cloud sync" is the same as "backup". This! If your blueprints are so important; export them and put the exported strings into a another system, like a spreadsheet. Losing a copy of precious data is one of those things we all get b...

Re: Do not change "ALT mode" when pressing ALT+TAB

This used to be an issue for me. Now under I no longer have this issue, it preserves the Alt mode whenever I alt-tab out of a running game. I'm not sure when this changed I did notice the change but it was so far under my radar that I didn't care to note which release. I am using Windows 11 maybe th...

Re: Worker bots

I can picture it; a sort of roboport acts as a source for the mine item, storing bots that are miners. These bot miners cover a specific area and seek tiles for the resource (for this description, let's not include trees). They move over to the tile and mine the resource, using a pickaxe like a cons...

Re: Seperate Personal Roboport Construction Zone Sprite and Roboport Construction Zone Sprite

in addition; I'd like to see a way to limit construction/destruction requests to the personal zone only not the other zone. I always get annoyed when I'm constructing/destructing something and parts of it are assigned to the non-personal zone construction bots.

Re: Start game with robo-helper

This would be an unexpected add to the game. Conversely the bot could be totally useless and/or even interfere with factory parts here and there.

Re: [1.1.50] Upgradeing electric poles makes new connections

Yeah and there's no example previously stated here from what I've seen: where you are connecting Big electric poles and are sometimes failing to make the intended long connections because there are too many other connections available nearby. Auto-connecting power wires has been a necessary evil tha...

Re: Peak Factorio 17.79 and the hot mess of .18 and 1.0/1.1

This game did have a polished and finished feel in beta, but changes in beta are likely to happen. The changes that were made were acceptable in my opinion. The original post is just some rant about an aspect of the game that becomes irrelevant after the game progresses into mid-game where we are st...

Re: Restricted Storage Interaction

It says "[...] cannot be filled by machines". That excludes the engineer. So hand filling is by design OK, hence not a bug. ah so, then since it cannot be filled by the engineer (via shift-click) then wouldn't that be a bug? If we all don't want to classify this so severely, At least it s...

Re: Restricted Storage Interaction

The fact that a player can manually place items in the limit area seems to be a bug to me more than a feature, so short-cuts such as shift-click in this respect are working as intended as far as I can see.

Re: Add double headed train stops

This can't be done with 2 separate train stops on opposite sides of the track as the decision must be atomic or trains stutter and can eventually block traffic. This is not solely a problem about multiple train stops. This is the challenge of double-headed trains in general. The real problem is tha...

Re: Add double headed train stops

This looks like a bi-directional stop to me. From my perspective it would be a challenge to use because the load/unload area would be obfuscated: I would need to replicate the loading or unloading devices on both sides. Also, I believe a waypoint would be best served from a single-direction station....
