Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

I'm not able to play that Geary Grinder. I'm on vacation and my notebook pc hasn't a mouse wheel. Are there chances to implement a keybord-way (like + and -) ? I've got the directive "no gaming pc on vacations" - so I'm lucky to get myself a Panasonic® CF19 outdoor notebook some time ago. It's runni...

That sounds like running the spotify app on a smart tv. Some people *do* pay for that regrettably.

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

Why do you keep hitting yourself in the head with this idea that any action by anything anywhere should be prevented if it leads to fluid mixing? It seems silly complicated and overly invasive compared to the alternative, which is to say pipes connect if they they are compatible, and does not conne...

Re: [0.17.41] Car speed on different tiles inconsistent

Thanks for the report. The vehicle has several other factors that come into the final speed such as the vehicle friction, and friction of the tiles it's driving on. Currently it looks like that car is faster in water than on stone ... ? :shock: That I consider more as a bug than a problem of fricti...

[Twinsen][0.17.17]Blueprint rotation not saved for direct links

What is: Blueprint linked from BP-book in inventory saves rotation during use of release button (Q). BP-books linked from BP-library doesn't. What I expect: Both BP-books behave the same. (In best case - booth save positions.) How to reproduce: Start a new game. Chop some trees. Craft 4 crates. Pla...

Re: Friday Facts #287 - Just bugs again

Would have been simpler, and a better idea, to just let the ban commands have proper quoting applied, so you can ban "awkward user name". There's some quite good reasons to disallow spaces in usernames on principle. The question is if we should have usernames at all. In my opinion the best setup is...

Hey. They are young (and need the money).
At this point we don't need to worry about their healthy.

But you're right they should stop it when getting older.

Re: [0.17.1] The three undestructable non-recipe-changeable differently-feeded buildings in new tutorial might be confus

Yes, I think you're right, they should get you the information how to change recipes. Because with limited capability to handcraft everything you need, progression may be hard. But that's not founded in existence of special buildings, it's founded in limited handcrafting in combination with not to t...

[0.17.6]Can't store deconstruction planer in BP-Lib (bug or missing feature?)

If one has Setup different decon planer (different white lists, black lists etc.) he has to carry it around in inventory. As far as I see it is not possible to add it to BP-library.

Edit: May the same with the green one (But I don't know if it is configurable in different ways).
