Re: Friday Facts #201 - 0.15 Stable, but not really

to be honest, I have no problem with the autosave at all as it works currently. 1. Yes, it brings up a little break into your work, but this is a really effect, unless you have a mega factory 2. As factorio is already more stable as many other games, I just autosave inteval (instead of every minute,...

Re: Switch on/off hand crafting per item

I think that it instead should show you which immediate ingredients you are already carrying by bolding those ingredients or something. And then maybe a hotkey that is like shift+m1 but only crafts as many as you have the immediate ingredients for? [...] What do you think about that as a solution i...

Re: Switch on/off hand crafting per item

What is the point of the suggestion really? Sorry again, that it is not so easy for me, to explain my suggestion well. As I am not a native english speaker I struggle sometimes and might write something down that confuse people. Sorry for that. 1. Point Let's stay with the yellow belt / red belt ex...

Re: Train Station Names in Train GUI

I rename the stations in a similar way as you do, but I still forget often if I want to create a new route from "Iron01" or "Iron02" to "IronDrop01" or "IronDrop Southwest02" and so on. So I add the first station and then leave the Train Gui, switch to map mode, check the other station(s) and go bac...

Re: Research overwhole

Research lost because you're not providing packs fast enough? definitely not. I assumed, research is paused in that moment, but nevertheless, with limited resources it might not work. Consider some of these infinite researches. Even an early one, you need 3000 of all 7 (8 in my mod) science packs. ...

Re: Research overwhole

Well I think Qon has quite astutely pointed out a flaw in the idea, though to be a bit more verbose - I like your idea of rewarding certain throughput goals, though I don't think research progression is the place to try and stick that kind of idea... while it may appeal to you, there's many players...

Re: Research overwhole

TL;DR Change the research in factorio, that it depends on throughput and time and not on number of research items. No. All you have to do then is buffer your packs to get any throughput you want. The ideas are just broken in so many ways that it's just a waste of time to list them all and your idea...

Re: Classes + Extra bodies

I suppose if the base model started with stats inferior to the base player character, you could in theory put an even spread of your limited points in all areas to bring it back up to standard, or spend all points in inventory space, to have a slower, character with less reach and less health, but ...

Re: Classes + Extra bodies

Now, when I designed the classes, I balanced them around the initial values, so all classes have both down sides and up sides. A skill tree doesn't really allow for this, because you can't actually set negatives in the script bonus system. [...] it is possible I can add a 3rd for skill points, the ...

Re: Classes + Extra bodies

A setup defining your class (RPG like) on your own by setting some attributes in the beginning of the game would be nice (as Mod Config). E.G. you can spent up to 4 points for the attributes - walking speed - building range - crafting speed - inventory size - health points each point brings you a bo...

Re: Switch on/off hand crafting per item

I also find it anyoing that when I build red belts, because I know I will need them soon, all my yellow belts are taken away. So then I'm standing around waiting for more yellow belts to be build. So I would like to extend this suggestion to also go the other way: Force crafting from raw materials....

Re: Switch on/off hand crafting per item

I've seen others share this same idea, but it seems to complicate the game even more. After having just successfully done a Lazy Bastard run, I better appreciate the value of automating supplies and having them go into chests. If you want to craft something that requires yellow belts but don't want...

Switch on/off hand crafting per item

TL;DR An option to switch off hand crafting for specific items would be great. What ? WHAT do you suggest? For example, I have a production for yellow belts, which I want to use to create red belts. But when I hand craft some red belts, it consumes either the yellow belts I have with me or crafts t...

ok, I just tested it again. It is not caused by your mod. I am also not sure right now, if this happens all the time, that I cannot walk and place items in ghost mode at the same time. Right now, it works perfectly fine. And I have changed nothing in factorio since yesterday where it was not working...

One workaround for keeping an eye on that frontline, could be another PC with the game running in MP mode with that other user view on that area.

It might be used for refueling as well --> similar approach as for later bot hangars 2. the can go a max. distance from any object yo...
