Re: [1.1.69] Low FPS/High UPS

Thanks. I haven't shopped for graphics cards for more than 5 years. It looks like MB memory is no longer relevant, compared to the card's own processor speed?

[1.1.69] Low FPS/High UPS

FPS is running in the 22-30 range (choppy/unpleasant to play) while UPS stays solidly around 60.0. It goes down to 20FPS or a bit lower around lots of trees. I've spent about 3 hours on this today. I got a refurbed Win7 computer for my kids to use, and of course Factorio is the main draw, and put a ...

Re: What are the most impractical items in Factorio?

I tried doing a "no nuclear power" run. Even with 6k solar panels and ~5k inserters, I still had power outages when everything was running. Four factories for both of panels & accumulators couldn't keep up with demand. Solar/battery is pretty impractical and completely obsoleted by nuc...

Re: Can there ever be a full 3D rendered Factorio?

I've never seen a 3D game that's as pretty as its 2D equivalent. It's also usually a performance hog, and runs into issues with boring and same-y skyboxes.

I think Wube made the right choice.

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

My biggest late-game headache is "oh, have to stop building to send out the Destroyer train again (2 engines, 1 tanker, 6 arty wagons w/ 600 rounds of ammo) and then babysit/repair whatever arty base full of turrets is closest to the enemy while it drives back the biters." Since I run one-...

Whoa. You lost me halfway through.
No programming background at all, so I have never been able to get the circuit network to do anything... not even just go "beep" when a train arrives at a stop.

How do I get the big "New Tips" window in the bottom left to go away? I clicked them all to mark as read and the menu is still there. Turning off tutorial notifications in Interface didn't help.

Great changes!
Now I have to rebuild the destroyed spidertron like my kids keep asking, instead of putting it off. Need to automate making some of those components.

What's next for Wube?

The obvious (to me) next step would be a Solar System factory, where you work on colonizing space and exploiting asteroidal and cometary resources. However, that poses a TON of challenges with orbital periods, shutting resources around, fuel production, and even just having a good interface. I don't...

Re: [Oxyd] [0.18.38] Modded Power Armor grid tiny with 1366x768 and 100% UI size

I believe I do have it at a larger font. The default font is too small to read comfortably. I have larger font display defaults on everything including Windows.
Should I resubmit as a separate bug related to font size?

Same problem occurring here. Default resolution for my 19" monitor, 1920x1080. There's a giant amount of grey at the bottom of the inventory window that's completely blank, so it's not a "run out of space on screen" problem. It's a "UI not working right" problem. My Factorio...

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

Congratulations!!!

I had a feeling we might get the Spider-tron or something similar with 1.0.

I've been running the same factory since 1/1/2020 (about 60 rockets in) with my kids watching much of the time.

Time for a new factory, factory #30.

[18.32] Blueprint in Quickbar not useable if in book.

If you make a blueprint, put it in your quickbar, and then move the blueprint from your inventory (where it takes up space) to your blueprint storage book (where it takes up no space), the quickbar blueprint will not function when you click on it.

Re: Friday Facts #350 - Electric mining drill redesign

Feedback, maybe a bit late. The new sprite for solar panels on a conveyor belt looks WAY WAY too much like speed packs. I actually put a splitter to divert "the extra belt of speedpacks" into my rocket control factory and had it run for a while before I realized the shape was off. The colo...
