Re: [0.18.3] UPS and FPS fluctuations when changing focus between Factorio and something else

Ok, this may be a neat observation, but I don't see anything that is a bug I don't see why the game runs slower when it has focus versus when it does not. The reverse makes sense, this does not. In my particular case it's observable at extremely high values of UPS, but it may be observable at stand...

Makes sense. Also added the log file.

Since the issue also occured in 0.17.79, I thought that'd help narrow down when the issue in question was introduced.

[0.18.3] UPS and FPS fluctuations when changing focus between Factorio and something else

So I was updating one of my mods (TimeControl) for 0.18 and as a quick test I set it to run the game at 64x speed (i.e. /c game.speed=64). I immediately noticed some odd effects that I don't recall noticing in earlier versions of Factorio. In a brand new save : In-game, my reported UPS in fact hit n...

Re: Easily tileable 7-segment display [0.17]

Here's an easily-tileable 11 segment display using far fewer combinators: This works by exploiting the fact that conditions on lamp can use "Anything = X" or "Everything != X" conditions, so the pair of constant combinators on the right specify a large set of values that -- when added to "N" -- will...

Joining a game with limited map download slots should show your position in the queue

As commonly requested by participants of today's FactorioMMO Stress Test: While waiting for a free map download slot while joining a multiplayer game, there should be some indication of your current position in the queue. Perhaps the text could read "Position in queue: 36 out of 205" or similar? Thi...

Re: Tiny QOL Improvement to map exchange strings

Sounds reasonable. But why show the map exchange string at all when there can be a "copy map exchange string" button instead of a "show MES" button. No one is going to write it down character by character manually anyways, seeing it is always followed by copying it. Showing it means I also have to ...

A means of telling a client to connect to a different server

Today's FactorioMMO stress test got me thinking on ways to handle truly massive scale multiplayer games with some degree of performance. One thought would be to have people split across multiple games with some form of sharing resources and chat between them. Some of this can already be done with ex...

Re: [0.17] Painless landfill

But, the 0.17 implementation of landfill is clunky, mainly because you have to add landfill to the blueprint for it to work... Clunky. There is a mod that let's you add landfill to your older blueprints, but... you are still messing with the blueprints. BlueprintExtensions has had a rocky 0.4.x rel...

Re: Error logs should show version number.

I'd also like to see this. I've one error report in particular where they only uploaded a partial factorio-current.log but it didn't have the first half which includes mod version numbers/etc. In that case, the issue was my mod relying on something added in 0.17.22 and them using it in an earlier ve...

Tiny QOL Improvement to map exchange strings

TL;DR: Map exchange strings should be automatically copied and pasted when the relevant functions are accessed. 99% of the time, if you are looking at the map exchange string for a map it is because you are going to copy it and paste it somewhere else. Currently (in 0.17), this requires two clicks (...

Re: LuaEntityPrototype::secondary_collision_box is not exposed.

Yup, I'm aware that priority prototype bounding boxes are relative to the origin and facing north. Transformed bounding boxes can be obtained from an entity directly, but I don't have a real entity available in this case. The transformation itself is not too difficult though, I already have code for...

LuaEntityPrototype::secondary_collision_box is not exposed.

Some entities (i.e. curved rails) have a secondary collision box. While this can be accessed on an entity itself (LuaEntity::secondary_bounding_box), it can't be accessed on entity prototypes. I'm working on a feature to automatically add landfill to tiles that need it in a blueprint, so this is nee...

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

In the case of your parking bay, if you want a FIFO queue, wouldn't the easiest solution just be to use a long serial track as your parking instead of parallel ones? This has the drawback of extending travel time for a train that it wouldn't otherwise need when the queue is empty, and takes more sp...
