Re: Friday Facts #345 - Unit group collision mask & Artillery shell particle

artillery shell drops should be part of the reloading cycle as others mentioned already.

Re: Friday Facts #337 - Statistics GUI and Mod Debugger

i see first class debugging as a big barrier for people to start contributing to anything.
i'll certainly check out that vscode plugin.
i have to say though that the lack of proper debugging til now was the main reason i didn't touch factorio modding too.

Re: Friday Facts #331 - 0.18.0 release & Train pathfinder changes

it would still be neat to be able to configure the maximum amount of trains that are allowed to target a train station at once. this way only one loaded iron ore train would leave the depod if a station signalizes that it can take more iron ore. it could also allow two trains to target if the amount...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

removing blueprint import / export will result in people sharing feature complete blueprint-storage.dat files. it also removes some other power user usecases. secondly: if you really want miners to only output with inserters, you should add inserter management so you can grab from the top and put st...

Re: Support for non Razer RBG hardware - Aurora

i suppose adding aurora support directly into factorio itself would be benefitial to us.

Re: adjust collision on reactors, turbines and undergrounds

while i agree that a mod would solve this easily i'd prefer to see this in vanilla factorio because visually you should be able to get through these obstacles. also i'd say this is a bug: https://i.imgur.com/gKPK9lo.png since you can run through that from time to time. (depending on collision calcul...

set it to purple. it will be harder to read. just saying this decrease in saturation adds to readability alot.

Re: enforce player chat color to be readable

One thing that would be interesting is being able to set a player's text colour separate from their 'ingame' colour… that's totally possible right now through modding since each player has two color values assigned. one for the player name / item color and one for chat color. my proposal simply add...

Re: enforce player chat color to be readable

as a matter of fact i already know the game has two separate values for player color and player chat color. (yes, you can essentially write in a different color than your entity is colored in when assigning a different chat color to your entity) so i'd say transforming my pseudocode into in game cod...

Re: Cliff climbing (and angled belts)

tile on top of a cliff would have to be a little closer to the top of a screen, than the tile on the bottom. i strongly agree to this. it would just mess up perspective and essentially break the current grid system. keep in mind the whole game is running in an alligned grid. nothing is loose except...

Re: Exploration / radar drone

one bad sideeffect would be that this would increase map size pretty fast.
in addition to that it depends on play style. if you plan on creating a mega base you are usually going straight into one direction instead of spreading evenly.

you should be able to copy them to your inventory and open them from there. it just does not work to open them inside the blueprint screen for me and others.
