Re: The enemies are kind of a "forced failure" condition

Biters (and allies) are both too hard and too easy at the same time. They're too hard in that if they get into your base, they can do tons of damage very fast, and it may not be recoverable. Also, if you have decent shields and armor, getting hit enough to take out the shields will almost always kil...

Re: Sparse belts

I came up with what I called a "Sparse Belt" too. My solution was to limit what was placed on the belt: SparseBelt.PNG The circular (square) belt has a reader, when something gets detected, it sends that to the filter inserter which drops one item on the belt. That goes in a loop around the walls of...

Re: [0.18.9] Crash: "DrawCommandBatch::drawSprite"

Please move to not a bug or delete.
This is no longer happening, even without --force-opengl.
Until it happens again and I can get more information I tend to agree with Loewchen that it's a HW issue.

Re: [0.18.9] Crash maybe graphics related

I was able to duplicate the crash. I'd just added 50 coal to each plastic plant and then as much as I could to the boilers.
It crashed shortly after that.

I'm adding the second crash report because I'd tried and failed to duplicate it one or two times, but then it happened again.

[0.18.9] Crash: "DrawCommandBatch::drawSprite"

I had this game crash after a while of doing a few things, mostly looking at the science pages. I was not able to repeat it, but earlier I'd had crashes with a modded game that indicated there was a graphics card problem, so I tried Posila's recommendation from this thread: https://forums.factorio.c...

[.18.9] Crash reports include version numbers

Please have the crash reports and failed to load mod reports include the version numbers of the base factorio game and all mods.
I see a lot of 'bug reports' that are just bad versions of one mod or another.

Re: [0.12] Bugs, crashes & other issues

I'm trying to use FARL with SE. SE has 'Space Rails' that can be placed in space. It now works with Space Exploration. As far as I know there were no changes to SE nor FARL to make this work. There have been several base updates perhaps one of them fixed it. Or perhaps I was mistaken somewhere. In ...

I just posted a mod to make boilers and heat exchangers start with 10 water. It could be used in combination with this mod to jump-start power production in space.

Re: [0.17+] Space Exploration WIP

Exploring a whole planet adds a lot to the save file, so it isn't automatic. But Nav view (unlocked after launching a navigation satellite) will let you explore any planet you've discovered fairly easily.

Re: Interesting to try your own ways of doing things

One thing to keep aware of is that for train operations you need a few buffers: 1 - the factory needs a buffer of the items 2 - the depot should have at least a train load full and probably more 3 - the train itself For a 4 car train, that's 16k plates in at least 3 places, so at least 50k buffered....

Why did you set the mining_speed of the god controller to be 0.0000001?
That's so that in Nav mode you cannot actually 'mine' a building to pick it up and place it somewhere else.
