[0.17.26] Pollution not dissipating

I have a potentially related problem in 0.17.26 which is that pollution never spreads out. It stays in the tile where it was created and does not dissipate or spread out:

I wonder if this could be related?

Re: [0.17.26] Pollution producing things show up as consumers in production statistics window

I'm experiencing this problem. My buildings show up as "Consumers" of pollution, and not producers. Pollution in my game never spreads, no matter what. It all stays on the same cells. As a result, the pollution never seems to dissipate or spread, and I never received biter attacks: PollutionNeverSpr...

Re: [16.0][win] Crash on start at "30% Building Prototypes"

Renaming crop-cache.dat to crop-cache.dat.bak resolved this crash for me.

Re: [IDEA/REQUEST] MARS: Terraforming and Colonization

+1. I've often wanted more to do in the endgame in Factorio. A large, expensive, terraforming project would be an excellent sink for endgame resources.

Re: Gears as entities (loose idea)

I agree. It would be neat to have gears and drive shafts in the base game or an expansion somehow. Plus air with pneumatic power. I think you'd need a new and unique set of buildings to power with these energy forms, though. What can you do with drive shaft or pneumatic power that isn't better done ...

Re: Factorio Friday Friday Facts #203 - Logistic buffer chest

Typically when you set up all the provider chests, they are spread out across your whole factory. When you return to base for a resupply, you end up waiting for a long time while the bots travel from all over the factory with items. By using a buffer chest, you can setup a dedicated 'supply area', ...

Re: Friday Facts #200 - Plans for 0.16

But I hope we can draw railway in the map first before that. (Using train robots) You can essentially do this using shift-click to draw train tracks. Or is that not what you mean? If you hold shift when you click on the rail planner arrow, you'll enter a mode where you can place down ghost rail tra...

Re: Friday Facts #200 - Plans for 0.16

I really enjoy reading all the Friday posts! They are way more interesting to us as players than you probably think. Remember that you live and breathe Factorio as your work, day-in and day-out. You've probably been talking about and working on the stuff that's in the posts a ton by the time that yo...

Re: Improvements to the Dropper aka Pipette tool (Q)

Twinsen, thanks for reviewing this and getting back to me! I really appreciate that the Factorio dev team reads and responds to ideas like this. In the meantime, I'll explore what kind of features are available through mods like Picker Extended. I may try to prototype some of the concepts described ...

Re: Improvements to the Dropper tool (Q)

Thanks for the feedback! I agree that #2 could be confusing to players who are not expecting it. Gating it behind an option checkbox could be reasonable. Honestly, #2 is less valuable a feature if the game supports #1, since a player who runs out of an item can easily use the Dropper tool to continu...

Improvements to the Dropper aka Pipette tool (Q)

Background: As of Factorio 0.15, you can mouse over an item and press "Q" to select that item for placement from your inventory. It's like the dropper or pipette tool used in paint programs for selecting colors, but for Factorio buildings. (This feature was originally provided by a mod, and is now ...

Re: Suggestion: Avoiding Logistic Fights

Really, the logistic request and trash functions should just be two parts of the same filter. For each thing, set a minimum and maximum. If you have less than the minimum, the difference is requested from the logistics network. If you have more than the maximum, it's dumped into the trash slots. Th...

Suggestion: Avoiding Logistic Fights

Summary: It would be great if Factorio could update the player's Auto-Trash setting when their Logistic Request changes, and vice versa, if the specified number would cause the systems to "fight with each other". Certain settings result in a "fight". For example, if a player orders 200 plates, with ...

Re: Friday Facts #195 - Poles re-design

Feedback from my perspective: The original poles had iconic shapes, sizes, and colors that made them visually easy to recognize. They also weren't too obtrusive (not too tall). The new power poles (big v2.a and med v2.a) look too similar to each other, and miss out on the distinctive different shape...
