Re: Friday Facts #299 - Everything is more complex than expected

Edit: Oh and from a programmer's perspective, I am currently unable to see how this would affect memory usage or performance. ...unless the new reserved counter spams more than one byte. Also from a programmer's perspective, it's just awful dirty code to be able to make multiple reservations and no...

Re: [kovarex] [0.17.3] Train leaves disabled station

I wasn't sure whether it is a feature or a bug, but after reading through, the decision is to revert it to the 0.16 behaviour I don't know how much more attention this will get now that it's already officially resolved, but as someone who is happy to see the .16 behavior made the default again I al...

Re: [0.17] [linux] Update to 0.17.1 std::bad_alloc

Does fixed mean I can update from .0 to .2 upon release or do I have to download the full release?

Get yourself a desktop notification when headless points to 0.17! (Linux only) :D while [[ "0.17.0.tar.xz" != $(curl -sI https://www.factorio.com/get-download/latest/headless/linux64 | awk -F_ '/headless/{print substr($4,1,index($4,"?")-1)}') ]]; do sleep 5; done; notify-send &qu...

Re: Version 0.17.0

Updated installation linux gives me File __base__/campaigns/beta/description.json not found (No such file or directory) Guess I can fix it from the download, but you should know that this happened. Edit: I don't think downloading 1,1Gig of full game is worth one json file, can I get it standalone so...

Re: Friday Facts #250 - Dead end conclusion

Reassign Alter Update : assign new contents to this blueprint. This is helpful when you want to update a blueprint and leave it in the same place in the player inventory, blueprint library or action bar. Besides that, this is pretty much a decent proposal with adequate functionality for a library u...

Re: Friday Facts #250 - Dead end conclusion

I still dont understand why we are not having a file explorer for the blueprints and collapsible/unfoldable blueprint books instead of this weird row-by-row grind. Stuff shifts around constantly in that it is annoying. In a list it would be between two specific items and if I scroll past them I kno...

Re: [0.16.0][Linux] Not starting, invalid pointer

Possibly duplicate of: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=54597

My systems are both Arch Linux with Kernel 4.9.50 on the server and 4.14.3 on my machine. I don't think that matters though.

[0.16.0][Linux] Not starting, invalid pointer

Experimental Release 0.16 won't start. This seems to be true for both the headless server and the complete game. It seems free() somewhere tries to free() something that doesn't want to be free()d and gets stuck. Edit: Non-steam version. Game output: 0.000 2017-12-13 19:15:42; Factorio 0.16.0 (build...

Re: [0.15.10] Damaged items in Assembling Machine output

I would say just prevent the player from trying to shove damaged items into the output of the machine and throw an error at them saying that. The game already does this when players try to shove the wrong item into the output, e.g. placing engines in the output when the assembler is actually making...

[0.15.10] Damaged items in Assembling Machine output

I just stumbled upon this reddit post and haven't found a related report here. When a damaged item is placed in the output slot of the appropriate assembling machine, the machine starts consuming resources and producing items without ever creating output. I randomly tested this with underground belt...

Re: Assembling everything for each item separately

I almost never put gears on the bus, (even though transporting gears is more efficient than transporting plates), but in a lot of cases it is 1:1 gear assembler:X assembler anyway. For producing belts etc it can be more useful to have a separate gears belt as production is intermittent anyway. In m...

Re: Multiple signals on one wire (multiplexing)

Hello folks, I wanted to share my shot on multiplexing with you. This is roughly based on some of the many ideas in this thread, but also contains a storage cell I created earlier that day: https://i.imgur.com/FRzdfot.png The storage cells require an input signal for at least 3 ticks to not brick th...
