Re: Nauvis Post Collapse (16GB ram minimum required)

Just wanted to add: First of all, amazing work. So much detail and atmosphere! (Small exploration spoiler: Darn, you can't pick up the rocket silos for yourself! ) Secondly, the map runs perfectly on my machine. Takes a LONG time to load and save which is perfectly understandable, but it runs at a ...

Wow all this stupid complaints. There was an early enough warning for this change and as the game is under developement there probably are another significant changes which will break mods again.

Re: Version 0.18.22

Also the API removal that broke mods was removed in version 0.15, and left in with some internal migration. The API has been non-functional for nearly 3 years, and these mods are just plain wrong for having these values. For migrations like these, it might be worth throwing up some sort of warning ...

Re: Version 0.18.14

This order also makes more sense because the Character tab is there from the start but Logistics is only added later. Which means the Character tab changes position, which would likely harm usability much more than a different-than-preferred order could. Yeah, the progression aspect, combined with ...

Re: Version 0.18.14

The reason for that is to keep consistency with keybindings. It's really unintuitive when the second tab is mapped to F3, and F2 does nothing(before researching logistics.). Keybindings? Nice! Was not aware of them. Makes navigation easier :D Did not see this in the changelogs, but was kinda obviou...

Re: Version 0.18.14

I know the character GUI was revised in 18.13, but I'm just checking it out now on 18.14 and something seemed backwards. I recall the initial design being shown in one FFF, and feedback suggested that the less frequently used Character tab be on the far right. This feedback appeared to have been acc...

...this was actually a game bug, so it may be wise to back down a tad on the hair-trigger to point the blame elsewhere in the future, especially where there was nothing in the changelog that would normally be attributed to causing that new issue with a given mod.

I thought the zoomed in map view was intentionally 'fuzzy' as you are supposed to be looking at remote data from the radar.

Re: Friday Facts #333 - Terrain scrolling

I think the only 'big' graphical thing left in need of optimization is when zooming out map view on larger bases - it noticeably slows the game even on the fastest of systems.

Expanding circuit connected readings (fluid flow, electrical stats, etc.)

Circuit networks can read lots of stuff, but there are a few missing items that folks have repeatedly requested. I think the holdup has been with figuring out how to implement, so here are my suggestions to improve the signal-reading experience: Fluid flow: - There used to be no easy way to do this,...

Okay, done for the next version.
Thank you! While you were testing that, did you notice the odd ‘toggle’ behavior while loading a wagon?

Re: [0.17.7] Pumps substantially slower than 0.16.x, but no changelog entry -- intentional or bug?

I tested this based on a blueprint of a pump-bus nuclear reactor design from 0.16 (which used to do the full 12k water/s). The sum of the steam output after reaching equilibrium is around 6.8k per second going by the sum of the steam consumption from the turbines. I stumbled across this thread whil...

Re: [0.17.25] Pumps not working correctly?

So, this may not be a bug ... I should be getting 720k water/minute, but production stats only shows 648k. This appears to have actually been a bug, though I'm currently trying to convince the devs of this . The issue relates to the fluid system change, where the pump fluidbox size no longer suppor...

Re: [0.18.2] Pump maximum flow is 6000/s (rated 12000/s)

@BlueTemplar: I'd need to download 0.16 again and invest the time into dissection, but my naive guess would be moving fluid simulation out of entity logic into its own system so it can run on a parallel thread. As it stands right now, all entities that have fluidboxes run their logic before fluid s...

Re: [0.18.2] Pump maximum flow is 6000/s (rated 12000/s)

@malventano: Reducing the rate like that can severely impede the fluid wagon loading time, since pump-to-wagon transfer is not based on fluid mechanics, but still uses the pumping rate number. I've already tested it. Empty rate is 100/tick / 6000/s with pumping_speed = 100. Wagon fill rate is sligh...
