Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

I'm going to change the name of the checkpoint to refer to energy storage instead of nitrogen. The actual requirement will still be the same. But the name might provide more of a clue about what you're supposed to do. I'm also planning to change the icons for consume or build checkpoints to call mor...

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

The tech that gives you compressed nitrogen is called energy storage 2, and among other things it gives you upgraded turbines.

Re: Mod portal "favorit" feature

IE, download count, if you have a mod that only 100 people have been downloading and it's updated 10 times, the total download count shows 1000. That's no longer how it works. That's how it used to work. They changed it near the end of last year so that it's now counting unique downloads in the tot...

It's still good feedback to know about. I'll mull over if there is any way to make it super clear.

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

I've added an entry on checkpoints to the FAQ tab of the mod portal page. But I'd be curious to know what you were stuck on in case it was something other than produce/consume/build, so I can expand on that entry if necessary.

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

Whether we fulfill checkpoint requirements in hand or a factory we get stuck. My friend was stuck on small furnace 1, I am stuck on Energy storage demonstration. But we both understand it's WIP, so no probs and thanks again :) The small furnace 1 checkpoint says to BUILD the furnace, not craft them...

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

It occurs to me that you might be thinking of the "liquid chlorine" commonly sold as a pool cleaner. That's a dilute solution of something like sodium hypochlorite in water, basically bleach. Chlorine in Nullius is just elemental Chlorine, which is a gas at room temperature. When something...

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

The tooltip description for each fluid says if it's a liquid or a gas. What building it can be vented in, if it can be vented, or how many processing steps are required if it can't be vented. So make sure to keep an eye on those for a lot of crucial information. If you're not seeing descriptions of ...

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

The Nullius 1.4.0 release is out with a major new feature in the tech tree, a system of checkpoints that require using certain techs before advancing to more advanced techs that build on them. This breaks up a tech era into smaller parts that advance as you actually start to build your factory to us...

Re: Do not pause game when looking at research in single player

Afaik, speedrunners use multiplayer mode mainly to avoid pause while in research. It's weird that the game requires you to set up a multiplayer server to play single player rather than provide this obvious QoL feature as option. A no-brainer: Easy to implement (because the basic functionality is al...

Re: [1.1.53] Inserters won't insert despite shortage of input

This is fixed in the mod by making fluid boxes output only, so anyone attempting to reproduce this would need to downgrade to 1.2.15 or earlier.

Re: [1.1.53] Inserters won't insert despite shortage of input

OK, I'll probably just change the pipe connection to output only then. Note that a lot of vanilla entities leave the pipe connection for output fluid boxes as the default type. For example the oil refinery and chemical plant pipe connections are all left as the default "input-output", not ...

[1.1.53] Inserters won't insert despite shortage of input

What did you do? Using Nullius Overhaul, set a Crusher 3 machine with the Grass Seed recipe, with a moderately but not completely full output pipe. What happened? After a short period of functioning properly, it gets into a bad state, where it stops production, reporting Item Ingredient Shortage. T...

Re: [1.1] Nullius: A Factorio prequel

The latest update introduces a new, very non-vanilla type of beacon. Existing beacons are now called "small beacons", and behave the same, unless you combine them with the new type. Those beacons are similar to vanilla, just with variations in power usage and effectiveness. The new beacons...

Re: [1.1.39] Lamp color is wrong when the sum of red+green circuit wires overflows

That doesn’t matter. A compiler can do what it wants, and can have legitimate reasons to optimize. Examples include using wider types to store values, and eliminating conditions that are redundant under these assumptions. An area where this can potentially make a huge difference is with stuff like ...

[Genhis] [1.1.42] Incorrect consumption by fluid burning generator

What did you do? Used fluid burning generator in mod with burns_fluid=true, scale_fluid_usage=true, and provided it with a fluid that has no fuel value. In particular it was a turbine in the Nullius overhaul, which burns compressed gases and where steam has a fixed fuel value that it uses instead o...
