Bad interaction between smart drag automatic undergrounds and opposite direction belts

Sorry if that title is confusing, here's an illustration which makes it a lot clearer: What I do: Before.jpg What I hoped for: Good.jpg What actually happens: Bad.jpg The tricky thing is it seems the belt segment which is ultimately deleted is first replaced with the "up" underground segme...

Re: Friday Facts #391 - 2023 recap

Just in case this is a good time to mention it, my #1 wish for the mod manager is an easy way to update currently enabled mods only. Over the years I've downloaded a lot of mods and "mod packs", but of course I only use a limited set of them at any one time. e.g. maybe right now I'm runnin...

Re: Train 2.0 question

I think what you do is make sure you have enough trains to saturate all producer stops. If you have more (for example) copper ore than you need right now, that just means every copper mine will have a full train waiting for a place to deliver it. Trains are not expensive, so this is fine. Remember t...

Re: The big question: Are you going to try v2?

Hell yes! I might not buy the expansion on release day, just because I basically never do that, but barring severe launch issues which I don't expect to occur, I would get it within a week at most. If I do hold off for a little bit, I'll probably hold off on starting a serious game in 2.0 as well, j...

Re: Quality level names poll

So based on current votes, it looks like a popular scale would be something like:
  1. Normal
  2. Improved
  3. Superior
  4. Exceptional
  5. Perfect
Sounds good to me.

Radar Research

TL;DR I think it would be cool to have research that increased the effectiveness of radars. What ? A new infinite research branching off of radar technology. Mostly this would increase the scan speed, but perhaps the final non-infinite level could increased the always-revealed radius by one as well...

Re: Friday Facts #383 - Super force building

I have one request though: now that you have super force building. Maybe it is a good idea to move cliff deconstruction to super force building instead of regular force building? That would be nice. I too have had situations where I destroy cliffs when I didn't mean to and it can be frustrating. If...

Re: Friday Facts #376 - Research and Technology

Regarding quality names (yes I'm still stuck on that), I'd just like something fairly simple and neutral, like: Standard, Good, Fine, Exceptional, Perfect I've noticed a lot of the player suggestions have had a negative term (such as "rough") for the lowest, but that seems misleading. On t...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

It would be more intuitive if the first tier of quality just had no symbol/dot at all, meaning " no particular quality". The dots can be viewed rather as badges this way. Also there is no need to explain/argue why the dots of Q1 items are not visible in the world and why the symbols you'r...

Prompt to sync mods when hosting saved game

Is there any good reason why the "Host saved game" option doesn't prompt you to sync mods with the save like the single player "Load game" menu does? I'm almost tempted to call this a bug, but perhaps there's some logic that escapes me. None the less I suggest that when selecting...

Re: Option to update loaded mods only

That sounds good too, but I'm not sure I understand exactly how it relates. I guess the same sort of "playstyle" selector could be included on the Update tab, but even if it were I'd still like "currently loaded mods" to be included as an option as well.

Option to update loaded mods only

TL;DR It would be nice to have a quick way to update only the currently loaded mods in the build-in mod manager. What ? I'd like to have either a button to select only the mods currently loaded, or just have only the loaded mods checked by default when you first go to the update tab. Why ? If you h...

Nope. Try it.... stopped belt with wire connected-> Status: "Working".
So did try it, and got a different result. Oddly it says "disabled by control behavior", which is awfully cryptic, but at least the disabled part is right.

Re: Friday Facts #362 - Menu simulation, Spidertron, Ghost building, Confirm button

Only bit I'm a little skeptical about is ghosts replacing physical buildings. Guess I'll have to wait and see how I like it, but I wonder if an option to enable or disable this would be good.

Nice. Just yesterday I was thinking about how I miss getting updates on what you guys are up to.

I don't often reach a scale where this is a bi...

Re: Sorting button

I'm used to the auto sort now, but I definitely would have preferred this when I started playing.

A similar button to sort chests and other containers would be nice too.

[1.0.0] Can't easily swap spidertron remotes

Specifically, with a spidertron remote in your cursor, you can't pick up a different one from your inventory. Works from the quick bar though.

I mean, yeah, you could just press Q first, but it's still unexpected behavior (to me anyway).

I know you don't really expect anyone to read that... but you know, to keep up appearances it should probably be fixed.

Re: [1.0.0] With map zoomed to "radar level" you can hear things in unrevealed chunks

I would argue that in real life too you can hear things further than you can see sometimes Well sure, I kind of anticipated that comment, but the thing is this has unlimited range. You can hear any generated chunk, no matter how far it is from you or a radar, which doesn't really seem reasonable or...
