Re: Friday Facts #356 - Blueprint library for real

Stay strong kovarex! The new library looks great. One of the big problems of the live version is that input is kinda of a mess. You left click to pick blueprints, but right click to open books, so I always wrongly pick the book that I'm trying to open. I was hoping for a more standard click to selec...

Re: Friday Facts #352 - New website

Looks great. Just please, please, for the love of all that you hold dear, DO NOT change the forums to one of those infinite scrolling layouts. You can't search, you can't link. It's a nightmare. I can't even comprehend why they became so popular. Just no, please.

Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

I do like the final new beacon design, but removing the alt view from it is a very bad thing imo. It's inconsistent with the modules in asm and it's very much harder to see if the beacon has modules inserted compared to alt mode which is there to actually give that improved overview. The alt view g...

Re: Version 0.18.27

Perhaps this is a good time to ask: why the stack filter inserter can have only one filter, while the regular filter inserter supports 5?

I once tried to make an unloader that cleaned my building train from wood, coal and stone, but the stack filter inserter seemed needlessly limited.

Cool.

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

If I may, I think you guys forgot the most important aspect of beacons: they are support units. They don't do anything, they just exist so stuff around them do things better. Let's take a look at this: https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-339-composition.png If you show this picture so someo...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

A problem with scaling wave defense scenarios is that the only way to scale attacks is to increase the ammount of biters. As you increase the number of players, and they get gear, waves become trivial, even when you have thousands of enemies. But at that point, half the server stopped playing anyway...

[Twinsen][0.17.42] Incorrect loss count in the Kills panel

Hi, Last week I reported that the Loss side of the Kill count was incorrectly reporting some values, and Rseding stablished that some values were being incorrectly rounded, and it was fixed. But today I came upon something fishy: factorio_2019-05-23_11-26-16.png As you can see in the bottom, 2 bots ...

[Rseding91] [0.17.39] Loss icon count show 1 less for some entities

Hi, In the Kills panel, the Loss count icon shows 1 less for some entities. For example: factorio_2019-04-26_15-59-55.png In the above picture, I lost 2 turrets (as evidenced by the 2 ghosts) and 2 bots, but the panel displays 1. I appears that the icon is displaying empty for 1 loss, 1 for 2 losses...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Another suggestion, it would be nice if the character tab showed every relevant stat. Like, what's your current move speed? How much power is your armor generating? What's your personal laser DPS? And more...

You know, similar to how ARPGs do.

[TOGoS][0.17.1] Map preview, random seed stops working after importing exchange string

When creating a new game the "random seed" button stops working after you import a map exchange string. Steps to reproduce: - Play / New Game - Expand Preview - Import map exchange string (input a string then confirm) - Click "Random seed" - The number of the seed will change, but the map itself won...

Re: Friday Facts #282 - 0.17 in sight

The hand tool sounds great, and I think the idea can be extended for the bots themselves. For example, when deconstructing a huge forest, your inventory will quickly fill with wood, then the bots themselves can't go back in because it's full. Currently I need to manually allocate space for them. fac...

Re: Friday Facts #280 - Visual Feedback is the king

It seems the temporary station defaults to the "5s passed" condition. Wouldn't it make more sense if it defaulted to the new "Passenger present" one? As it seems the most common use case of using trains to pick you up at random places.

Amazing. Specially the toolbar, and toggles. Would you kindly add an option to Toggle Personal Logistics?

Re: Friday Facts #278 - The new quickbar

Nice! Now questions: 1) Will my toolbars' layout be remembered across games? Having to remake your toolbars every game, every multiplayer server, every load, is not very fun. The number of pages visible on the main screen is configurable. 2) Does this means I can have more than 2 active toolbars (li...
