Re: Friday Facts #318 - New Tooltips

I'm unsure of what the "standard" use case for bots is considered to be if you assume that entities aren't being built next to each other. The main thing I use bots for is placing solar panels and batteries in big clumps. I can understand limiting the "vision" range of bots (no sense trying to batch...

Re: Version 0.17.28

No, the post body says 27 and the post title says 28. This is a typo, not an intentional version skip.

EDIT: Except if FactorioBot is actually a bot (and why wouldn't it be?) how did it accomplish a typo?

Re: Friday Facts #284 - 0.17 experimental

I agree with the FFF on this one: the campaign is much harder for veteran players than new ones. As a veteran player in freeplay, I generally start games with 2-4 people, stick a pair of burner miners on coal and then quickly establish steam power and electric drills and inserters. I bypass burner i...

0.17.1 graphical bug: inserter appears over foreground power pole

Haven't devoted effort into reproduction yet, just saw this while placing objects.

The inserter is being drawn over the power pole despite the pole being in front.

Feature request: set ghost assembly machine product

When copy+pasting assembly machines the ghost retains the product setting and displays the icon for it. When manually placing assembly machines, you cannot set the product and have to remember what everything is. This can be very confusing if you leave and come back or are working in multiplayer and...

0.17 Feature Request: Mine to hand

Please add some sort of mining option so that the item you mine goes to your hand (with a hand-placeholder appearing in your inventory so you can Q clear it there and don't break inventory limits). This probably wants to have a modifier key associated with it so it only happens when you want it, or ...

Re: Friday Facts #269 - Roadmap update & Transport belt perspective

Am I the only one who feels weird about the angle on belts? I immediately looked at them and said "I can see too much of the side". I think the belt housing is supposed to be going straight down, but it feels like it comes way too far out from the belt for a 45 degree camera angle. I think the core ...

Re: Friday Facts #267 - Experiments, Explosives & Extended tags

Interactive text looks really clean! I'll be happy to have a way to send recipes to people so they don't have to find them in the crafting menu while they're busy.

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

Don't wanna sound negative, but thinking about actual setups used in game (see pictures) and seeing how many junction there are and relatively few straight pipe sections, I'm not sure it would really be that much of an optimization to be honest. Even in the images you link there are pipe segments o...

[API bug?] surface_index of event is 0

I tried outputting the contents of some on_player_mine events, specifically on_player_mined_tile, and the surface_index is coming back as 0, which isn't a real surface. At first I thought this was because I had made water minable and was mining it off the map, but it was also true of stone paths. Is...
