Re: Friday Facts #311 - New remnants 3

Quick comment on the remnants: Most of these look great and strike a good balance, but the one class of objects that IMHO don't look destroyed enough are the chests. They fact that they still appear to be substantially closed containers doesn't feel right. Like seeing that I would think "Damn, I won...

Any chance you could make the uranium text plates glow? That would be awesome.

Re: Friday Facts #306 - Experimental Demo

One quick nitpick: In the evacuation stage it asks me to pick things up. But I'd already picked up everything I wanted in the previous step. If there is nothing left to take, the quest should auto complete. Ill look into it. Fair enough. And I'm not certain there was literally nothing left, I colle...

One quick nitpick: In the evacuation stage it asks me to pick things up. But I'd already picked up everything I wanted in the previous step (OK, yeah I've played it before, but to me "prepare to evacuate" implies "pack your stuff" so I doubt I'd be the only one to respond that way). Not sure precise...

Alert host when players join paused game

Pretty self-explanatory. Unless I'm going something wrong, it seems that currently when the game is paused I can't see players join. This is inconvenient since I might want to keep the game paused while I wait for someone to show up.

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

My only concern with the oil change is that it make could make heavy oil scarce. Although somewhat unusual, there are times when this could be an issue, such when you first start rolling our express (blue) belts. Currently switching one or more refineries back to basic oil processing was an easy sol...

IMHO, the wall remnants look a little too flat compared to the others, like the wall was ground into a fine powder... What about some nice toppled chunks?

Re: Friday Facts #290 - Rail building changes & High-res icons

I like the idea of being able to start the rail planner without placing a rail first, but please keep the ability to connect to an existing rail too. Especially on the diagonals and curves it can be difficult to eyeball a connection, so being able to explicitly continue an existing rail will remain ...

Re: Version 0.17.28

Right, the top bug "Fixed a crash when hovering over some inventory-like GUI elements." must have been caught just after release of .27. It sounds pretty bad, so I guess they took it down immediately, and put out a fix.

Thanks guys for the answers. Still mightily confused about how to get rid of an empty blueprint, nothing seems to work... I'm not aware of any better way than using it and then deleting it.

On thing in the character gui that is bugging me might be just me using it wrongly...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I don't understand what confuses you. There are two numbers, min and max. If they are both the same, only one number is shown. Otherwise both numbers are shown, min at the top and max at the bottom. Isn't that already what you are proposing? I disagree with merging them, and also with the fact that...

I'm concerned about how incredibly tiny that search button is on the mock up.
I thought that too, although you can always use ctrl+f. The button is probably there more as a hint that that you can do so than anything else. I would assume the tooltip also tells you the shortcut. If not it should.

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I like the idea of merging requests and auto-trash, but the way the numbers are in this mockup is a bit confusing in my opinion. The fact that the way each is displayed depends on the state of the other seems more complicated than necessary. I think it would be better if they each had their own styl...

Re: Tutorial experience - unfortunately not good

I think the key problem is that they are trying to do two completely opposite things in one: a tutorial and a campaign. Yep, that's it right there. Making a tutorial that feels like a natural part of gameplay is something that sounds good, and has often been attempted, but it very rarely turns out ...

Re: Temporary Stations = Manual train mode

What if the train returned to manual mode only if it was manual before you set the temporary stop? There are reasons for wanting either manual or automatic, so I don't think switching from one assumption to the other is much of an improvement. But the state unchanged seems like it would have a great...

Re: A Deeper Look into Combat Robotics

Personally I would like to see them reworked to remove remove the assumption that they are single-use items. I would prefer they be more like construction robots. That would be a major change and mean, among other things, that they would need to be tough enough to stand a decent change of surviving ...

Re: Can you give back possibility to long waiting times for trains

Are you playing the current version? This was a bug earlier but it should be fixed now.

Note that the slider still only goes up to 120, but you can enter a higher number by clicking in the text box.

Re: A Deeper Look into Combat Robotics

Good analysis. I too, stopped using them a long time ago after my initial tests proved unimpressive. I didn't even realize they got worse still in the latest version. If the devs can find time, I think they should give these guys a major overhaul before the 1.0 version. Like redesign from the ground...
