[0.17.4] Combinators don't show set items in alt mode

On 0.17.4 (and I think since 0.17.0) all three combinators don't show what is set when in alt-mode.

[0.17.0] Map preview incompatible with user scaled UI

Setting the 'UI scale' to Custom with 250% results in showing only around the right half of the preview map while I think it should fit the whole map into it.

It is happening in 'Full screen' mode on a 4k display. Factorio runs on the primary screen while two 4k screens are running.

Re: Friday Facts #283 - Prepare to Launch

It would still be nice if one of the devs would join this thread writing something short like "Sorry, we didn't made it today. We're working hard on it. Thank you for your patience". And everyone waiting would know to forget factorio for the evening and be patient for the next day .. As great as Wub...

Titanium smelting?

In the pictures of the blueprint libraries are several blueprints called "Titanium smelting". Could this be a hint for a new resource for 1.17? :?:

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

When I read through the friday facts and saw all those pictures with filters I thought we finally get filters for (nearly) everything (chests, etc.). I was a bit disappointed that its all about UI. So I'm still hoping an UI overhaul will be for the whole game including filters and different/easy pos...

Re: [0.15.9] Confirm Blueprint Book Deletion

Confirmation would mean one more click for each deletion while mostly only one in a lot are mistakes. I think it would be better to have a trashcan where the last ten or so deleted blueprints/books would be stored witht he ablity to restore them. So if you accidently delete a blueprint or a full boo...

Re: Suggestion for Radar placement

The good question here is: why do you think you need to cover everything with radar? The best answer for this is: cause we can! ;) But also what TakingItCasual said: they're about to become a lot more useful with the map zooming in 0.15 though aren't they? IMHO it's not really needed and sucks up a...

Re: Suggestion for Radar placement

Radars work in chunks, not in tiles. It doesn't matter where in a chunk you place them they will have the same coverage. Oh, didn't knew that yet. Thanks for the info! But I still think there should be some kind of help for placing radars. Turning the grid overlay on and off for placing radars does...

Suggestion for Radar placement

Hi, I want to suggest to add "yellow dotted lines" to radars in placement mode to already placed radars (like what we have with roboports) which would make it much easier to place if you want optimal radar placement in a huge area without gaps or overlaps of the active radar areas. Currently we have...

Re: Iron/Steel/Wood Walls?

One aspect I like about factorio is that there are not dozens of alternatives about everything. I mean it would be pretty easy to implement lots of things like different walls, but it would unnecessary fill up the production tabs with things that are mostly not used after a while. Stone walls are al...

Re: Consistency in names with more than one word

I also dislike the inconsistency. Looks like the game itself has currently no standard.

Upper lower lower seems for me to be right too. Beside that I would also be ok with Upper Upper Upper as long there will be a standard for the wiki (independent to what the game names are).

Consistency in names with more than one word

Another thing that should be discussed. Currently there is no consistency about page naming when the name has two or more words in it. In detail if the second (third, etc.) word begins with a big or small letter. Some examples: Iron o re Iron P late Active P rovider c hest This often makes it hard t...
