Re: [0.16.51] "Server is not responding" while downloading map

The game communication uses UDP while the map download uses TCP. TCP connections can sometimes swamp out UDP packets, depending on network connections and routers used, so what you’re seeing is not too unexpected. If the server runs on Linux, there’s some fancy network configuration stuff that you c...

You could also run Prime95’s torture test, which generally pushes the system more than Memtest but doesn’t tell you which area the problem is in exactly.

Re: [0.16.51]Inserters stuck looping with uncompressed blue belt

The items are perfectly spaced so that the inserters take just a bit too long to switch belt sides to reach them before they go out of range. I think the only way to prevent that is making sure that the items are spaced differently. Considering that there’s so little on the belt, the most reliable w...

Re: Server not reponding during map download

I'm surprised it's 2018 and networks still can't tell the difference between low intensity, high priority data and bulk "when it gets there" low priority data. It's so annoying that my 12kb/s game connections get ruined because the 5GB download NEEDS to complete 0.0023 seconds faster. A bit off-top...

Re: [Rseding91] [0.16.51] Segmentation fault when running out of disk space

I think the saves are unrelated. If you symlink the temp directory to a filesystem with space left and then start the campaign four times, Factorio will crash even without attempting to save the game. I think the problem is that it doesn’t handle not being able to write it’s log file. After starting...

Re: [0.16.51] Inserter stops picking up items from blue belt

That leaves me with just one question: why does this behavior differ between the underground entrance and exit? I'd imagine they're both 'half a tile long', but the behavior differs so is the entrance just a couple pixels shorter? What could be the reason for this difference? AFAIK, inserters will ...

Re: [0.16.50] Idle Pumps Emit Pollution

I still believe, that a pump that has been disabled by circuit connections should not emit any pollution (Correct me if I'm wrong). I just checked and disabled pumps indeed don’t emit any pollution. Odd that pumps are the only generically pollution-producing entities, but at least that explains why...

Re: [0.16.50] Idle Pumps Emit Pollution

Start sandbox game, place a pump, solar panel and power pole: chunk has pollution.

Unpowered pumps don’t emit pollution. Will try circuit-disabled pumps later.

Re: [0.16.50] Idle Pumps Emit Pollution

I haven’t found any other electric entities that produce pollution when idle even though they drain power. All other entities only produce pollution when active, i.e. animated. When I stop all resource input and let my whole base grind to a halt and then wait for the pollution to clear, only chunks ...

Re: [0.16.49] Green Circuits

That belt which is sideloading onto the belt before the splitter. If you want to use the splitter priority logic, then you need to actually feed the belt into the splitter, rather than sideload onto the belt. eg something like. That fixes the OP’s problem, but doesn’t change the fact that items fro...

Re: [0.16.49] Green Circuits

The belt feeding from the top is backed up, so no items from the belt coming from the right should fit on it, yet items on the right lane of that belt squeeze into the left belt. Items on the left lane stay. There is probably a split between two belt lines between the first and second belt in front ...

Re: Programmable Speaker Audible Distance Bug (Minor)

Non-fading sounds aren’t limited to just the programmable speaker. Try standing next to a rocket silo and run away when a rocket is starting: the sound will keep playing at full volume as if you’re still standing right next to it.

confused_inserter.png The inserter in the attached save is waiting on the far lane of the wrong belt tile (to its side, south). See screenshot above. The inserter was never rotated and I’ve never used mods. This also happens if items are placed on the other lane of the belt. Mining the corner belt ...

Re: Toogle fullscreen toogles train station names on map view

Pressing alt in the map view toggles all of the options you have enabled on the top-right off/on. For me, it doesn’t. If I select all options, pressing Alt toggles only roboports, turrets, power and pollution but not station names or player names. The GIF in the OP also shows that the station names...

Re: [0.16.41] Game stuck on loading screen

0.16.41 contains a bugfix that needs to replace every rail signal when you load an older save. Considering that you have a huge train-based map, this will take a looong time. Try waiting even longer. If it works, save the map again and you should be fine from then on. 0.16.42 is supposed to have a f...

I haven't had chance to look into it further yet. To get you started, maybe have a look at timeBeginPeriod / timeEndPeriod and timeGetDevCaps , mentioned in the Sleep() api . By default, Windows uses low resolution timers (important on laptops to conserve power) and you have to explicitly tell the ...

Maybe not internally, but it at least does something for display. If it doesn’t round(), does it floor()?

Re: [0.16.36] Rounding error with modules?

This is most likely a result of imperfect representation of real numbers. 80 % is 0.8, which cannot be represented in binary and becomes 0.80000001192092895508 when forced into a float type variable. 1 - 0.80000001192092895508 = 0.19999998808 210 * 0.19999998808 = 41.9999974968 Truncate the fraction...

If you have that text field selected, pressing tab will move to the green slider that you can then adjust with the left and right cursor keys. Pressing tab again selects the green text field. Then pressing tab twice selects the blue text field. It would be nice if the text in a text field would be s...

Re: Toogle fullscreen toogles train station names on map view

The alt info toggle doesn’t toggle station names (or player names), though. Only roboports, turrets, power and pollution can be toggled via alt info.

I didn’t find a key to toggle station names.
