The rendering isn't going to be a performance bottleneck anyway... (unless maybe on very low power integrated graphic chips ?)
And of course, as already mentioned, it's already fully multithreaded.
Render preparation is CPU, iirc. I don't think it's generally a major bottleneck, though.

Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

Yes and no. You need to do that calculation of item-positions only for the belts currently visible. ... The same is it with this idea: you have a segment of belts with items on it, you know when each item in the segment will leave that segment and you know the current time. With that information yo...

Re: ARM architecture

The problem wirth supporting ARM is that factorio source contains handwritten optimized x86-assembly. To the best of my knowledge it does not , from what I've gathered the main reasons against supporting ARM are low market share and ensuring determinism. I remember that some FFF talked about assemb...

Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

I read this again and must say, that this is only true, if you have fixed segments, the segments themselves don’t move. But the general idea will work also with them: you can move the segments by having a fixed point on the belt in the future and measure the time it takes for the item/segment/whate...

Steam has an update for Factorio scheduled a few hours from now, but there's no description or news associated. Is this IT?
If you don't try to start a game or have it set to have updates prioritized, Steam will schedule updates for it for the middle of the night.

I think that the controversy is 2-fold:

(1) People thinking that it shouldn't be in the base game.
(2) People thinking that it isn't possible to create a mod that improves UPS in this manner.
(3) People worrying that it will simplify mechanics.

Re: Optimization idea: abstraction

I might be wrong, but I think you misunderstood what blueprint spraying was. As I understand it, BP spraying is : place a blueprint out of conbot coverage, grab one of the entities placed as ghost, and spray it over the BP to build only where ghosts of this specific entity are, to build super fast ...

Re: [1.1.6] Shotgun warping

There is no such thing as an "authorative" server in factory. That's actually not quite right. The server is authoritative when it comes to player input ordering and timing. That's why latency hiding is necessary in the first place, and why you see rubberbanding when latency hiding switch...
