Re: 1.1.27 tank excessive self damage using explosive shells?

I know, but I have done many many playthroughs (also using the tank), but this is the first time I experienced that self-damage makes the tank hard to use.

1.1.27 tank excessive self damage using explosive shells?

Since playing 1.1.27 today I noticed that the tank does an extraordinary amount of self-damage when using explosive cannon shells. Could be just that I researched the new level of shell damage but it really feels out of the ordinary hence the report (spend some 1k+ hours on Factorio now so should ha...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

I don't like the beacon design itself; it is too 'complicated' and detailed. Beacons should be simple structures with a little animation like the rest of the buildings. Now it looks organic and alien; while all other buildings look engineering and tidy (except for nuclear; but you know, radioactive ...

I don't know if I like that, but I suppose that should be discussed in another part of the forum.

[18.13] All turrets have the colour of hosting player

In multiplayer all gun turrets have the colour of the hosting player (and change colour if you change the colour of the player).

Same goes for flame turrets

Re: More powerfull lights, better light profiles

I suppose keeping the radius of light but adding another radius of gradient light to dark wouldn't hurt indeed. I would definitely be more inclined to build lights.

Re: Friday Facts #291 - New Campaign, MP stress testing, HR Icons II

Are these icons the final ones? Because I don't like that they are so abstract. I don't think they blend in with the gamestyle since they are so crisp. Maybe add some slight shading?

Re: Beacon on/off via circuit network

Beacons would become more powerful indeed, but this could be balanced by increasing their power usage when in use. I do think it's more elegant when they could be switched off by logic, on the other hand, the challenge of building electricity networks which do control parts of the factory by power s...

Adjust stacksize in hand by +/-

Some tasks require manual insertion of a certain quantity of goods in a structure, e.g. filling ovens with coal or inserting ammo in a turret. Although one could automate this; in the early game manual insertion is the more viable option. I propose to make the stack size held in hand adjustable with...

Re: Rail over cliff does not trigger bot to use cliff explosive

Yes, appears to be similar. It is a very annoying inconsistency though and should be fixed before 1.0 I suppose.

Rail over cliff does not trigger bot to use cliff explosive

A rail blueprinted over a cliff does not always trigger bots to use cliff explosives. You have to throw one manually to solve the problem. A single bot hovers over a cliff holding a rail without an other bot destroying that cliff. Location in save for example: -555,-921, DEV can pm me for save file ...

[kovarex] Trains, temporary station changes to newly built station by other player

I am playing multiplayer with 1 other person (vanilla 0.17.25). When either he or I am travelling towards a temporary station (ctrl+click on rail while seated in a locomotive), and the other player builds a new station via blueprint (not ctrl+C ctrl+V but really a blueprint) the temporary station cr...

Re: 0.17.24 and older has screen tear

I did some further research and apparently this bug is caused by NVidia G-Sync, possible not related to Factorio.

Re: 0.17.24 and older has screen tear

I had the same bug on a brand new screen. A restart of the computer solved the problem, restarting factorio was not enough. MSI GTX970 GAMING, up-to-date drivers, and a NVidia sync display (34 inch LG 144Hz 1440p), connected via Display port. Also, when factorio was quitted the behaviour still persi...

Re: [0.12.20]Missing belt lines from mini-map

I agree this is really annoying and makes the mini-map less useful. I think we can all agree that belts are recognisable features in the landscape and thus should be visible as such in the mini map to help orientation.
