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.

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

Nice. Just yesterday I was thinking about how I miss getting updates on what you guys are up to. I understand if every week was too much, but I'm glad to hear we'll be getting occasionally updates again. As for the content, the train limit sounds great. 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...

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

So in the map, if you zoom in to the level where visible areas become a live picture, you can hear sounds from any part of the map, even if not visible, or never revealed (black). Because spawners regularly emit a gross burbling sound, means you can locate them past the edge of the visible map or ot...

Re: Blueprint Library Feedback

Most of the new functionality seems OK to me (although I've not been a heavy blueprint user up to now). But the one thing that I'm not happy with is how easy it is to accidentally delete a book from the library. I lost a book that way (luckily, I think it was one I'd imported rather than one I'd bu...

Re: Purchasing game from website

You need an account to access the mods portal and the multiplayer matching server. Both of these are additional services provided by Factorio.com so I can't really blame Wube for limiting them to verified customers. But the game itself does not require any kind of activation, and you can still insta...

On the fluid mixing, do you plan to revert some of the strictest prevention measures now that there's another...

Re: [0.18.29] Progression pitfall in Tutorial: Crash

Thanks for the quick work as usual. This is definitely better, but I do note that without the GUI check the arrow intended to point at the furnace appears on top of the GUI. It looks funny, and is perhaps a bit confusing. Still, you've got the text directions in the corner, so I doubt anybody would ...

Is there there any way to increase the width of the shortcut bar?

The shortcut bar is a nice feature, and it's great that mods can add to it, but the default size is just enough for all the vanilla shortcut buttons, and I want to keep pretty much all of those. I know you can increase the height, but then it's taller than my standard two-row toolbar. Is there any w...

Re: Friday Facts #349 - The 1.0 plan

Tangentially related: I don't usually pay much attention to Steam, but I happened to look at Factorio's page there and I noticed you've got some outdated info about what 1.0 will look like in the "Why Early Access?" section.
