[0.17] Map icons must be placed far apart

The area where the mouse "hovers over" a map icon is much bigger than the icon itself now, and prevents placing map icons close together. The minimum spacing is much larger than it was in 0.16.

Is it possible to change the interval between server saves for joining players?

On the busier servers, the game can become very difficult to play as people are constantly joining and the server is constantly saving the map. I know in older versions, the server would save every time, and at some point they changed it so it would only save every few seconds. Is this configurable?...

How did you bump up to 515º?
The entire mod is just two lines of code, one sets the target temperature of heat exchangers to 515, the other sets the maximum temperature of turbines to 515.

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

Can I also propose modifying the heat exchanger to heat steam to 515 C? So that it makes 100 steam per second instead of 103.whatever, and turbines can still consume 60 steam per second, but produce 6 MW instead of 5.82, and also make nice 5:3 ratios with exchangers instead of 97:60? I would apprec...

[MOD 0.16] Fahrenheit 959

Mod portal link This mod helps make ratios simpler for nuclear power generation. Since the conveyor speeds (or rather, capacity) have been tweaked for 0.17, there was some discussion following the FFF update about tweaking other things to have nicer ratios. I chimed in and mentioned that nuclear po...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

Re: Friday Facts #245 - Campaign concept

Please keep the old campaign as a scenario pack as I really liked a few of those missions. For example the one that teaches us to use trains; seemed really good. Perhaps a missions pack would be nice. Yeah! I actually highly enjoyed the smaller, self-contained missions as a nice alternative to free...

Re: Friday Facts #227 - Rendering, Trees & Scenario talk

I remember a while ago, there was discussion of a scenario that starts you out with some power armor, a personal roboport, and some construction bots. It was just like vanilla, but you get to lay down blueprints to bootstrap your base more quickly. I liked that idea a lot, and would love to see it b...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

You, actually, might be right about the power. Maybe the issue here is in that the late-game in regular plays just is to easy to expand and real estate is just too cheap/easy to get, so whatever power requirements you have, you can match them with ease. Bots do eat a lot of power, in megabases that...

Re: [0.15.29] Paused server led to hard crash

Same problem here. Someone paused a server on which I'm an admin. On logging into the game, my UI is completely unresponsive, so I can't click the unpause button (or indeed, the quit button -- I have to End Task on Factorio).

I right click the book to open it, then click the blueprint to take it from my inventory, then click in the book's UI. The bluepr...

Deleted player-data.json, and it recreated it on exit. Seems to be working normally now, though the contents of player-data.json also seem to be the same as they were before... really weird.

[0.15.21] Losing saved login and favorite servers

When I browse public games, I'm asked to enter my username and password again, and after I log in, my favorite servers are not remembered. This doesn't happen every time I exit the game and restart, but it has happened 3 or 4 times today. It just started happening with the 0.15.20 or 0.15.21 update.

Re: [0.15.0] Kovarex enrichment with productivity modules

But personally I would also agree that productivity Modules should be allowed, but the way the productivity is calculated should be changed. +1. So the inputs here are 40 U-235 and 5 U-238, and the outputs are 41 U-235 and 2 U-238. It seems you could determine the "product" by subtracting the input...
