Re: Friday Facts #315 - New test servers

So basically you found out what we knew, that on the same memory dimms, intel processors work better. That is because Factorio is not a highly core dependent game, but very memory hungry; the faster the memory and the higher the single core GHz, the better. Now imagine what the intel rig will do wit...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

I believe the materials SHOULD be wasted when you mine an assembler mid production cycle, but only to the degree the progress has already been, rounded up. If a recipe calls for 20 green chips and the assembler is at 27% at the time of disassembly, then the materials the process has already consumed...

May I introduce you to a forum post that analyzes and compares many different intersections?

Lore

I'm trying to (and failing) to get my gf interested in Factorio, but she asked some good questions! Some I knew (and they are in parentheses) but some I don't! Does anyone? Who are you in the game? (an astronaut) Why are you there? (you crashed) What are you doing? (you are trying to launch a rocket...

Re: Underground belt - blueprint - Q button

It could be, but may I respectfully disagree that the undergrounds work as intended? I have a design for single belt balancer that is useful for when I have inserters eating from the belt, for example, and the belt keeps on advancing the items on one side of it, with the design I made it now advance...

Underground belt - blueprint - Q button

Saving a blueprint with an underground belt that has no match (an exit or an entrance) but is alone, keeps the direction in the blueprint just fine. The direction of the underground is visible to the player. However, if the player then mouses over this and presses Q, the underground in his hand is N...

Re: 0.16.51 - Keyboard doesn't differentiate

That's interesting; I did not know that global keypresses can be "locked" by the application that has them assigned. I did look and I think I found some solutions for AutoIT v3 and I will look into them. I will also have to check why OBS doesn't do the same (I had to set the scene change to a combin...

Re: 0.16.51 - Keyboard doesn't differentiate

I edited my post, but DaleStan wrote a respons in meantime. If I were to bind all four of those shortcuts to four different Factorio actions, should all four actions happen when I type <ctrl-alt-shift-F5>? Assuming the answer is "no", what happens when I then unbind <ctrl-alt-shift-F5> (leaving the...

Re: 0.16.51 - Keyboard doesn't differentiate

I'm not sure I agree with that NaB designation. The issue (as I see it) is not whether or not some other program is bound to <ctrl+alt+shift+F5>. If Factorio says the shortcut to do a particular action is <ctrl-F5>, then only <ctrl-F5> should trigger that action. <ctrl-alt-F5>, <ctrl-shift-F5>, and...

0.16.51 - Keyboard doesn't differentiate

I have set up some keybinds that other programs monitor. Two of these are the Control+Alt+Shift+F5 and Control+Alt+Shift+F6. As Control+F5 and F6 already do something in Factorio, these are also triggered (F6 = detailed debug, Control+F5: GUI debug). I have pressed control and alt and shift before I...

We may want to make this a feature request? That stations with no request threshold cannot be requester...

Why go for a .0.16.x experimental instead of a 0.17.x experimental? Why stay on the same version when you declared it stable? Shouldn't stable be the ...

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

How could you read 1 as 7, when 7 is written like this? https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hand_Written_7.svg It must be a cultural thing; I was taught in school to write my 7 like in this picture, and handwritten 7s and 1s are thus always clearly separate. However, I have seen many English sp...

Pardon? When you go to one computer and set the scale, then you go to the other computer and the scale from the first computer follows? You change it in one and it changes in all others?

I think this is possible. As an example, take a look at: FACTORIO_ROOT\data\core\locale\he\info.json Thanks, this works when I do it in FACTORIO_INSTALL/data/core/locale/en/info.json BTW Factorio looks incredibly good with monospace as the font everywhere!

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

Which is exactly the point. I don't get the discussion here, since we can set the scale. Whether internally it is pixels, or dpi, or light point per kilometer, who cares? We have a scale setting tool, set it to what you like and move on?

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

Why not just let the UI scale be user defined? Just go there and change it. Not everyone wants specific UI size! I do NOT want my big monitor to be filled with the icons like I was in still in 1080. Others might want huge icons. A slider to control the size of the UI according to personal preference...

Re: Friday Facts #243 - New GUI tileset

One thought: The use of any font that has the same character for small L and capital I should be avoided. The Tittilium font fits this description. I would encourage you to change this, if you can, or choose another.
