Re: Friday Facts #301 - Crash site: First state

[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.

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Ewww durability. Amazing changes all around, the number of personal requests is not nearly enough right now, so happy it will be infinite. It's missing one thing though, what happened to the sort buttons idea? https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-191-inventory.png Source: FFF #191 The use ca...

[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.

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

Amazing. Specially the toolbar, and toggles. Would you kindly add an option to Toggle Personal Logistics? For example, when you die, you don't need to re-request everything, since your stuff is waiting for you in your body. Actually, it would be really convenient if there was an option to automatica...

Do the temporary go to station disable inserters during this stop?

Example: I use my Iron Ore train to travel to the Circuit factory, now my ore train is full or circuits?

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...

Re: Friday Facts #271 - Fluid optimisations & GUI Style inspector

Is viscosity in fluids still going to be part of the new fluid system? Will it support lower viscosity fluids as well as higher? I have that running right now. But no promises that I will keep it as it is yet another added computation. Is there any plans to communicate that better though? Adding an...

Re: Friday Facts #271 - Fluid optimisations & GUI Style inspector

Hopefully not too late to the party, but since the fluidbox merging part of the implementation is only for 0.18, I suppose not. Combining adjancent fluidboxes to reduce the ammount of them that needs processing is obviously a great idea, but I feel that the system could be a bit more aggressive than...

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

For those giving us ideas of what could go into the "empty hole" after the pickaxe: The "main screen gui" is going to change lot. We have quite a concrete plan already that will be shown in some future FFF. I believe that most will like it :) Hopefully it will have a few extra dedicated blueprint t...

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

The shift-clicking and map location features are amazing, and much needed for online play. But I'm afraid we also need an actual chat UI, and a few fatures. Like, player list, scrollable chat, send individual whispers, setable background opacity, etc. I know, not super duper high priority, but these...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

- Should pistols be removed from the game? Right now there's no reason to ever craft one. On a free game, you never really have to use them. In multiplayer games it's just something every player will pile up in random chests. I'd say yes, but I don't decide that. I've said for years pistols are wor...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

Amazing FFF. A few questions: - If the fuel value on items is being halved, does that mean trains and other burners will now consume twice as much fuel? - Should pistols be removed from the game? Right now there's no reason to ever craft one. On a free game, you never really have to use them. In mul...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

I'm afraid these improvements don't fix most of the current issues with fluids, while potentially making UPS worse in some situations. Let's talk about the worst cases: massive nuclear setups, like this: https://i.imgur.com/LCZa1BB.png, or oil: http://i.imgur.com/9J91Ger.jpg. These layouts consist p...
