Re: [1.1.46] Intermittent Crash on Load (Before Main Menu)

I haven't changed any graphics settings (either on my computer or in Factorio) in quite a while.
I'll try updating my graphics drivers.
Thanks.

[1.1.46] Crash intermittently on start loading graphics

What did you do? I launched the latest experimental version (1.1.46) of Factorio from Steam (running on my Windows computer). This is how I normally launch the game. What happened? I turned my attention away from the computer for a minute. When I came back, an error message was on the screen. The g...

Yes please! I'd really like it to be something more in line with the visual style of the rest of the game . :D

Re: Logistic network naming

If we could have logistic networks associated with players have the same name as that player, that would be super awesome.

Re: Map Laser Turret Color Red

One potential problem with that: both grass and trees are already green.
Not to say green is a bad color for lasers.

Personally, I would prefer laser turrets, gun turrets, and flamethrower turrets to be all the same color because in my mind these defensive structures all serve the same purpose.

[Solved] How do I get the name of the current scenario?

Hello, I want to access the name of the current scenario from within control.lua. How does one go about doing that? I can't seem to find anything in LuaGameScript that allows me to access this property. If it helps, I'm trying to print a message to the console, but only in a very specific scenario t...

Re: Efficiency Module Scaling

add eff modules to steam turbines is not bad, actually. It's like an upgrade to gain more power without increasing UPS. Problem is, that the most ideas are just, plug it in and *magic*: more power. Not so interesting, maybe? Its not magic. The word efficiency is used IRL: coal energy efficiency is ...

Re: Efficiency Module Scaling

That'd be nice, if we could plant trees for beautification or industrial-scale forestry.
However, wood is only useful in the early game, so I don't see this happening anytime soon.

Re: Efficiency Module Scaling

Speed and prod works very well because they doesnt compete each other for slot. Prod goes to machine, speed goes to beacon. If eff wants to play nicely they must find their own place. One of the challenges with finding a place for efficiency modules is that their only effects are to reduce energy c...

Re: New infinite research

Wouldn't mind an infinite tech -- or at least a limited-repeatable, like braking force -- for damage resist thresholds, just to cut down on the annoying 'a wall got scratched!' notifications. The way damage resistance works in Factorio is that flat resistance cannot reduce damage to 0, but instead ...

I would really like to see this in the game. This feature could also be used for NOT going to the item pickup station if the train still has plenty left in it but still needs to make deliveries.

+1 good idea What if at the left or right edge of the blueprint there was a little icon that showed you which key to press to flip it horizontally, and at the top or bottom edge there was an icon that showed you how to flip it vertically? That way there's less text to read & it's communicated si...

Re: Have a low power icon as well as power off (for beginners :)

If there was an option in the settings menu for this...that'd be pretty good. I imagine on larger bases with power issues it might get annoying.

I agree with everything that has been said above! I am disappointed that the devs removed the quick right-click to put down a map tag. I use it often when biters damage my turrets so I can go back & repair them later when I have time. There is a simplicity in being able to generate a message on ...
