Re: NSFF

Well obviously the inserter arm has some special treatment in the z-plane. I am guessing this is to ensure that objects like power poles, train-stops, assemblers, etc. (basically everything else) are not preventing the player from discovering whether some particular inserter is working. That's sens...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

For now we have set the fire sticker to do 10x the damage, but only every 10 ticks maybe it would be better to set it up so that the change only happens when FPS drops The problem with that is that it has to be deterministic (i.e. behave the exact same way on any system) for multiplayer to work. Si...

Re: 0.18 DeathWorld

I keep getting the suspicion that up to a certain perimeter length, regular manual repairs and refilling with ammo takes less time than the time it takes to build these sorts of self-sustained defenses. I'm inclined to agree, although an automated defense system does take out the factor of human er...

Re: screen resolution

Factorio should use your monitor's resolution, including 4K - I have not heard of any restrictions in that area, and I think I remember some people mentioning playing in 4K before (although I don't personally have a 4K monitor to verify that). If you want to verify that on Windows the log file shoul...

It's literally the only path that exist in direction east through this section.
Are you sure, far east (on the map) Loewchen?


@b3y: you're going to need to post a log and save if this is a bug.

Could 10 be a truncated form of 250/24 (10.4)?

Also to note is that they're two different power generation systems that aren't really reconciled in any way.

Re: Sponsors

Nothing to really see, is what I described. I mean I never heard of Ino, or Inno until I saw it in game. Ino.PNG Train stops and radar are all named after "sponsors". I thought it was just independent backers not actual companies. :ugeek: That's pretty neat. I thought it was as well (early backers ...

Try the latest beta (0.18.4), and if that doesn't change anything post a log and screenshot with the debug (F4) option show-time-usage.

Re: SPAM accounts invading the forum

Going back to the original birthday case, I wonder how many legitimate users put in that sort of information - most of the bots/spam accounts appear to have birthday, occupation, interests, and all of those other fields, while I have almost none (just a signature).

Re: Performance on AMD Bulldozer

Okay, graph time. Making graphs is way more convoluted than it should be in google docs and unfortunately I don't have access to Excel at the moment, so you're getting lovely TI-84 graphs. Boxes are Intel, plusses are AMD. Trend lines are unreliable for smaller data sets. Also to note is that multip...
