Re: Belts vs Bots - A response to FFF #224

To me this whole question is even simpler: Belts are the fun early-mid game. Bots are the late game convenience. Factorio is a sandbox - if I don't want to use bots I don't have to, but like so many other lategame tech they exist to make life easier late game when the player is focusing on the "...

Re: [0.17.23] Desync when connecting to Vanilla game

haha it does sound a little over-dramatic - but a previous bug report had a random user download the crash log before a dev could see it, so I thought I'd try to avoid having to re-upload and waste everyone's time

[0.17.23] Desync when connecting to Vanilla game

Desync report attached Not much to explain here - I attempted to connect to a server (one I've played on for the last week). The map downloaded, then immediately did a "redownloading map" then desynced once that was complete Edit: Whoops, too big for the forum attachments... Desync report ...

Re: Circuit network on roboport, help needed

A bit of a side note here: but it's usually worth using the "available robots" rather than "total robots" for each type. That way you add robots whenever they're needed by the network, and scale with your base. Eg I have mine setup to insert robots whenever available robots (of t...

Re: Trash slots chest: storage chest filled up with requested items...

The above comment is correct, but to expand on why: Active providers chests will actively "push" their contents into the logistics network: which means, if they can get rid of their contents they will do so. Passive providers only make them "available" to the network. Without sto...

Re: [0.17.14] Game crashes when syncing mods with vanilla multiplayer server, but only when using "Join server after syn

Disabling AV is always my first step when encountering a bug, but actually this happened to be a fresh Windows install with literally drivers and Factorio and a couple of utilities on. Great that it’s fixed though, top service as always :) (although I’m still waiting for the “gates as player detecto...

It didn't expire... the file was removed because TruePikachu downloaded it - it's a file sharing service, not a file hosting one. I wasn't expecting anyone else to download the dump file.

Dump file. Produced in 0.17.15 due to the update, but I get the same issue - let me know if you'd like me to download .14 to reproduce it there instead

I couldn’t even take a guess - your suggestion sounds plausible but I know nothing about how Factorio works internally

Re: [0.17.14] Game crashes when syncing mods with vanilla multiplayer server, but only when using "Join server after syn

Then the crash is presumably not being logged... my further investigation may shed some light on that though: the game doesn't crash if I delete the logs before launching Factorio. Just to be sure I was getting the right logs, I deleted my logs and repeated (so I could see the files being created) 1...

Sure - I've opened the game again since the report, so I've just reproduced the bug and added both current and previous, in case it matters that they're a matching set

[0.17.14] Game crashes when syncing mods with vanilla multiplayer server, but only when using "Join server after sync"

1. What did I do? When I have mods enabled and try to join a multiplayer server (clicking the "Join Game" Button after selecting a server in the "Browse Public Games" dialog) , the game asks if I would like to sync with the server. The selected server has no mods (base 0.17.14)....

Re: [0.17.x] Save and Load Quickbar Layouts like blueprints

Yes please!

This isn't such a big deal in singleplayer since we tend to stick to a savegame for a while - but in multiplayer it's a nuisance as I switch servers fairly regularly. Setting up my quickbar 5 times a night is an un-necessary hassle

Sync blueprints to Steam (like savegames already do)

I think the title probably says it all here: savegames sync to steam, it would be nice if blueprints did too

Can't open chests while holding items, can't ctrl+click (or shift+click) to drop items in chest

I can't find anything to say this functionality was deliberately removed, and I'm fairly sure we could do both previously because I've been away from the game for months but both are still in my muscle memory when playing. When holding an item in your hand, ctrl+click/shift+click (I forget which) us...

Re: Heavy lifter logistic bots

I think the concept of this is good, but that there's no need for extra types of robot... the infinite research for the robot stack bonus just needs to be more sensible, so that you can get to larger bonuses within a sensible time

When placing a combinator on a ghost, retain the conditions

One minor bugbear in the fairly early game (pre-robots) is that while robots will keep circuit conditions for blueprint ghosts, placing the combinators manually does not.

This would be a great QoL update, especially if wires were placed too, when placing the second combinator the wire connects to.

Re: Allow trains to send circuit signals indicating passengers

Great idea - being able to summon a train by standing next to a gate, then have it leave the station when the gate sensor detects you've gone and the train sensor detects you're on board... perfect
