Re: Version 0.17.76

Steam has these patch notes, but labeled as version .77. Typo maybe?

Re: Friday Facts #168 - Nightvision Nightmare

Green night vision is such a tired mechanic that I think it would be nice if it just made the base most dark things can be a bit brighter incremented by how many goggles you have equipped and leave the green tint/vision penalty off entirely. It makes a little sense in first person games but not when...

Re: Friday Facts #128 - Back down to earth

and I agree with selkathguy Efficient and optimized systems should be a challenge to build, but not tedious. As it stands now the Loader removes all challenge for maximum performance, which the entire point of the game is an optimization puzzle. As a sidenote it robs players of the satisfaction of ...

Another way to get it to the main screen is to make sure it has focus, the press windows key + left right arrows until it moves to the correct monitor.

Re: [0.12] Headless mode and multiple clients behind NAT

I hadn't thought of trying through the external for the internal clients. Will give that a go tonight and report back. It will let us know if Comcast and DDWRT routers support that kind of networking. My understanding of what's going on looks correct (and it seems to behave as expected), but I'm not...

Re: [0.12] Headless mode and multiple clients behind NAT

Your scenario assumes that the port is a fixed number for all clients, which isn't the case. Where are you getting this information? I still think it is incorrect. All clients (and the server because it is just a client) want to talk on the same port, and if they can't, it fails. Just tried: Server...

Re: [0.12] Headless server not working with more than one player

Thats' right. With port forwarding, everyone in that port goes to the headless server. If you try to connect as well from another computer on the same network behind the port forward, you can talk to the server, but all traffic coming into your network on that port goes to the server, so the compute...

Re: Dedicated Server Guide on Windows

Perhaps you guys can help me, I managed to get the "server" running, but how do I go about running two instances of Factorio.exe (ON THE SAME MACHINE!) so I can actually test the server??

Re: Dedicated Server Guide on Windows

I'm having a similar issue as you, except I can connect just fine if nobody else is on the server. However when I'm on the server, nobody else can connect. If I logout, my friend can connect, but then I can't. It's quite a puzzler. It makes sense that it behaves this way, since the server is just a...

Re: [0.12] Headless mode and multiple clients behind NAT

Nope. Everyone seems to all want to talk on the same port. It also prevents running headless and a client on the same machine.

[0.12] Headless mode and multiple clients behind NAT

One issue I have might be uncommon, but affects my setup. I have a server I run a few games on from my home network, sharing a single external IP. Ports forwarded to the box running the server. External people can connect just fine, but I can't connect from another machine on my local network. When ...

Re: Friday Facts #88 - Combinators

Train rails that carry power are a fantastic idea.

Carry power to outposts without running power poles, and make tracks even more deadly to players.

When typing "/players" in the chat, it returns the error "unknown command 'player'". If i type /playersx or any other character at the end, it returns the output of the /players command.

Re: Aliens broken?

It sounds like you had it set to generate a peaceful mode world.
Run these commands in console:

/c game.peacefulmode = false

/c game.killallenemies()

You want the kill enemies command because only newly spawned biters will pick up the new setting. Spawners are unaffected by the kill command.

Re: Why having everything on a belt is a bad idea

It's important to remember that this game is not mainly about building rocket defense. Sure, it's the official end of game, but most of us probably have their own ideas of how to play and what to do. So if you're not trying to achieve perfect efficiency, putting everything on a belt might be a nice...
