Re: What "Atlas Texture Size" really do?

I have upgraded sience then (gtx 970), but I do not change my mind. My GPU is basically IDLE now while playing Factorio. I feel that on most non-gaming computers, even on "potato" laptops, it is similar - GPU is idle (or used far below its capabilities), while video memory bandwidth is bottelnecking...

Re: Friday Facts #255 - Construction tools

Sounds good, but for UNDO I would restrict it to current screen/view only. Even with long reach settings. I imagine situations, where I press CTLR+Z and nothing happened. Nothing near the player... But far away, in remote factory outpost, some crucial infrastructure element just gone out of existenc...

Re: Roll mods into the base game

Those simple and not game-changing mods may and should be added. I do not think that anybody may lose interest in playing Factorio just because devs have added ability to do some basic stuff easier. But that's all, no big mod-packs or game changing stuff some players may want to add into core game.....

Re: Roll mods into the base game

Stop minecraftizing Factorio. Core game MUST be kept simple (KISS principle). For everything else are mods - that's why they exist.
"Voting" for mod to import into vanila is also pointless. IF game has 1 000 000 user, how manu users should vote to implement mod into game?

Re: Underwater Nodes

I prefer draining water from lake (closed and relatively small body of water) with pumps system, and then revealing underwater ores. As proposed in "water as resource" thread.

[mod request] export some data to file on regular intervals

I like Goole Maps Factorio Style mod (https://mods.factorio.com/mods/credomane/FactorioMaps), despite it's broken now (but, easy to fix). It miss however one "simple" feature, that is player tracker. If there were a mod, that in regular intervals or on some actions dumps to json file (or other, simi...

Re: Set splitter priorities with circuit network

Honestly, I would separate "regular" splitters from "smart" splitters. And, possibly, make smart ones bigger, eg. 2x2.
They are to powerful right now, after 0.16 changes...

Re: Block rail section based on train condition

You need something distinctive to handle all conditions, station (modded version of regular Train Stop) is a good object. Different graphic, invisible in schedule menu etc. Conditions interface similar to Locomotive, each condition can be true or false. Default penalty = 0 If condition is true, add ...

Re: Block rail section based on train condition

I am using dummy stations to force trains to take another way, but all trains are treated identically. If penalty for passing such station was calculated based on train status/length/conditions, it could be different for different trains, and that's something within modders reach... Train does pathf...

Re: Clickable links in chat

Also: - accidental clicks on such links can cause Factorio to unexpectedly minimize, loose focus, load browser (that, with low ram, can take a while...), and load some page. Everything while player character is not controlled by the human. This may be problem, if You want eg. click something near ch...

Re: limit chests to one stack by default

Forcing all players to have 1 stack by default means, that other players would fall into opposite situation:
They may want to produce eg. lot of tracks, set up everything, just to find after quite long time, there is just a 1 stack of tracks instead of full chest...

Re: Set chain signals to red via circuit network

Also, being able to read chain signals (including which ones are on blue) could open up some really interesting programming possibilities. Probably. Can't think of any right now but this is factorio and I'm sure someone will do something fascinating with that functionality :D I am quite sure You ca...
