Re: [0.17.x] Map preview too wide

Also affects me, 2560x1440. Seems like its non-16:9 aspect ratios that have the issue.

Re: Friday Facts #164 - Nuclear power

Isn't this Factorio? Why can't I just dump the radioactive water back into the lake to cool it down?

On the other hand, maybe that just turns the entire lake into a pollution source and pisses off the biters living around it, and then we end up with super mutant biters attacking... Sounds awesome!

Re: Version 0.14.0

I had an idea awhile back about modules in vehicles[0], this is going to be awesome! I also articulated in that idea that factory and equipment modules could be combined. There's no real reason for the exoskeleton equipment module if we could just load a speed module in instead. Some of them might n...

Re: Friday Facts #123 - Better circuit network (Part 2)

Removing the "smart" from smart chests and making it a separate item is a great idea. I expanded on that a bit further in an idea I submitted awhile ago https://forums.factorio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17564 . Instead of having special requester/provider chests, you could have chests with modul...

Combine factory and personal modules

In my RSO + Marathon map, I frequently need to reload my FARL with more rails and signals, and unload the collected wood. I have a second car with laser turrets and walls and ammo and fuel for the tank. I'd like to automate this, so I set up a depot in my main base with requester chests that load th...

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Alpha

Ok so `game.forces.player.chart_all()` reveals a medium-sized portion of the map. `game.forces.player.chart({left_top = {x = -1024, y = -1024}, right_bottom = {x = 1024, y = 1024}})` returns with "bad argument #0 to 'chart' (Wrong number of arguments)". It looks like `chart()` now expects a surface:...

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Alpha

The "chart a huge area" cheat (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4761&p=44184#p44184) doesn't seem to be working any more in 0.12. Anyone know how to do that now? The changelog mentions "Added LuaChart::chart_all (charts all the generated parts of the map)", but I'm not sure how...

Re: [0.11.x] Marathon Mod

I'm using it with the RSO mod, so there's fewer resource patches, but they're much larger and richer. Here's my base at 10 hours in: https://www.dropbox.com/s/73gks4wnajkzs8p/2015-01-18%20at%2010.54%20AM.png?raw=1 My starting area had very little coal, so I had to expand slowly and carefully to make...

Re: [0.11.x] Marathon Mod

This mod is great, loving it so far. One problem: I'm trying to expand my power generation, and wanted to automate the production of steam engines so they can be made while I'm doing other things. The mod currently requires 100 pipes to make a steam engine, but they only stack in groups of 50, so th...

Re: Lagging on Yosemite

FWIW, this was an upgrade install to Yosemite, and I was noticing other weird performance issues, so I did a clean install last night. Factorio seems fine now, so it must have been a botched upgrade somehow.

Thanks!

Lagging on Yosemite

I recently upgraded my MBP Retina from Mavericks to Yosemite. The game (0.11.3 and previous versions) was running just fine, I have a huge factory with lots of bots and trains and there were no problems. When I tried to run the game under Yosemite though, it is extremely laggy. About once a second i...

I've been using the RSO mod (which is awesome BTW) so I have a bunch of remote mining outposts. Frequently, there's issues at each outpost with trains or miners or biters, and I need to go investigate. This either means I have to wait for the next train to take me there, or walk (or drive the car, b...

I also have this problem on OSX. 2 crashes to desktop with no error message when trying to place the train, and the third time while I had the cargo wagon "held" in my cursor before I even closed my inventory and the game hard-locked and I had to force quit.

Re: [0.10.10] OSX hotbar keyboard shortcuts stopped working

I just downloaded 0.10.9, and the keys are working fine there, so its a regression from 0.10.9 -> 0.10.10.

[0.10.10] OSX hotbar keyboard shortcuts stopped working

I upgraded from 0.10.4 to 0.10.10, loaded up my saved game, and noticed the hotbar keyboard shortcuts (1,2,3,4,5,shift-1,...) are no longer working. Other keys are (Q, E). I went into the configure controls dialog and was able to re-bind the keys to the same numbers. I started a new game, and the ke...
