Re: Nuclear Reactor Copy-Recipe Wrong

Besides, copying a machine to a requestor has the requestor seek what, 30 seconds of ingredients? Nuclear fuel cell lasts 200 seconds. Would it even request anything if you could copy/paste it? Well that 30 seconds of ingredients should be a minimum of 1, to support mod recipes with long craft time...

Re: How do I make an inserter only place at maximum 50 coal into a train?

Filter the cargo wagon, (middle mouse click on a slot) so it will only accept one stack of coal, and 39 stacks of iron.

Re: [1.1.39] Steam cloud saves not syncing to Steam

From memory steam cloud sync has a max total size. (Personally I normally turn it off, but that is because I have crappy upload bandwidth).

Alternatively is there a mod out that that allows players to add more toolbar-like slots (allowing mouse access to items and/or blueprints. I don't care about keyboard shortcuts).

Re: Very Strange Lag Issues

From everything that you post it sounds like your pc is having trouble keeping up with the server. It might be worth testing without other software running on your PC, to see if that improves performance. (So close your streaming software, video capture software, web browsers, etc). I'm assuming you...

Re: [1.1.57] Crash

A blue screen crash is a crash of windows itself. Nothing a normal application does is capable of causing one. It is always caused by hardware instability or buggy drivers or by bugs in window itself. I would start by running memtest (https://www.memtest86.com/). If that doesn't show any issues, the...

Re: Random Lag spikes when playing K2

I suggest you start by posting the screenshots and logfile requested in viewtopic.php?f=7&t=68653 .

Re: Version 1.1.50

yeah, and a rocket for a stack of fish is expensive already. a rocket for 12 fish is just preposterous. If you just want a few fish to build spidertrons, then you can just build some inserters by a lake. Much cheaper, and easily automated. If you are in a hurry, manually mining a few fish or draggi...

Re: Version 1.1.50

if multiple inserters put stuff into it on the same frame, the silo only takes from one of them. more info here . So basically a minor inconsistency between the silo behaviour and normal assembler type behaviour that most players will never encounter. Arguably less significant than a missing '.' at...

Re: Using the graphics card to help the CPU out…

I thought robots where made to be so simple they don't need to do any work per tick. They only do work when damaged, when they reach their target or when they run out of energy Yea, but at least you need to calculate their current position every tick when visible on screen, so you can draw them.

Shouldn't this be available in the "betas" on Steam?
It's still a stable release. Having read the last FFF, I don't expect many new unstable from now on.
Factorio.com lists 1.1.21 as experimental. My steam client shows it as available in the latest 1.1 experimental branch.

Re: [1.1.19] Blueprints are too easy to accidentally delete.

So I filed this as a bug report, and someone moved this to ideas and suggestions. (I'm not sure who? A developer or a moderator?)

As I stated above I actually believe that is behaviour is a UI design defect, ie a bug.

That part of the map is still in fog, do the ghosts appear once you move to the right explore that area? I don't consider anything that is visible on my screen (without being shaded or otherwise obscured/marked as not properly visible) as being in fog. Most of the section that is cut off is being p...

Expected behaviour is that if all entities in the blueprint are visible on the screen, then the blue...

it's already available on the "experimental" branch, and you should test your saves now if you want them to work properly when 1.1 is marked as stable. because then 1.1 won't be getting bug fixes, just like how 1.0 doesn't anymore. I still expect bug fixes for 1.1 after it was marked stab...

Not sure if this is your issue, but I think there is some bugged behavior occurring when blueprints are out of roboport range. For example, try printing something very large outside robotport range and the robots will grind to a halt. Or at least they did for me in 1.1.6 or so. That is not a bug. I...
