Re: Does anyone else build multiple quad Nuclear Reactors rather than one big one?

I build 2xN "in line" with any mod for ground water, so it can be build endlessly until you have space, using simple copy-paste. I tried to use different builds before, but they are more complicated to copy when you need more power. Building some structure and installing it in a big lake, on a fille...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

You prolly should put a survey, with questions and typical answers. Inserters should not chase items Miners shouldn't output directly to belts Leave them as is. I love the idea that miners can output to wagons directly, and that gives me a goal to chase! Boilers shouldn't have a water output Then ho...

Re: Friday Facts #308 - Not stable quite yet

I'm also very surprised that in a game, where you can change or fine tune almost anything without problems, using console, LUA or mod, someone using Cheat Engine. Maybe they are too lazy or do not understand that in Factorio, one can change almost everything from a console?

Re: Changing effects on evolution / changing pollution spread

OKay, I can read and print it, but can not change. /c local t1 = game.tile_prototypes["water"] game.player.print( t1.emissions_per_second ) t1.emissions_per_second = 0.001 Print displays 5e-06, that looks realistic, since I saw 0.000005 number related to water tiles before. But LuaTilePrototype is r...

Re: Changing effects on evolution / changing pollution spread

/c game.player.print( Data.raw.tile.water.ageing )

Does not work for me, from console.
Says attempt to index global data - nil value. Data.raw.tile.water.ageing also do not works.

Seems should be some prefix before data. ?

Revert toolbar to old behavior (with auto link new items)

Old toolbar behavior was much better. I craft a new item, it instantly appear on a 1st free slot of toolbar (I don't care is it item or link). Then I place it, and it's gone from a toolbar.

Is it possible to impenitent by mod?

I searched but found none. Is it impossible to do?

Re: Problem with too big/obscuring building sprites

I strongly disagree with you, immortal_sniper1. 1. Please use proper grammar, it's hard to understand what you write. 2. Game should be fun. I'm not going to adapt to mod that force me to build base in limited way, not the way I like. Because this is one of main Factorio concepts - you can do same t...

Problem with too big/obscuring building sprites

In Factorio core game, all buildings textures/sprites, almost always fits inside their rectangle. If they are drawn outside of rectangle, it's usually very small part, like antenna, that do not block view. They also never block a way in between of any two building. Here buildings are too big. Okay, ...

Re: Friday Facts #307 - 0.17 stable candidate

What about new fluid mechanic? Is it already implemented, or postponed for future?

Because current performance of semi-long pipes is very low.

Next day I turn power switch on a power supply off for several minutes, did BIOS reset to default, loaded optimized defaults and everything turned back to normal. Still no idea what caused the problem. No crashes anymore. I suspect that some memory access control setting in a BIOS got changed to hig...

Re: [0.17.63] Crash with unknown reason, repeatable to some degree

Sorry for bug report - it's a hardware problem in my PC.

Memtest86 shows, that, due to unknown to me reason, memory, when it's temperature gets to 67 degrees, starts to fail a lot. DDR3, no manual overclocking.

Re: [0.17.63] Crash with unknown reason, repeatable to some degree

Thanks for the report. Looking at the 3 crash logs they're all crashing in completely random places each time. That makes me highly suspect bad RAM on your end. Yes, it crashes at random with c0000005 code always. Had no problems with RAM before. I'll run some test tomorrow, will write here if it i...

Do I understand right, that numbers in your interface, in basic part, 100 times less then in Factorio default game creation, because there % are used? And equal in advanced tab. Or no?

Re: Friday Facts #293 - New remnants 2 & 1.0 Marketing plan

In an article about GameDevTycoon, their creators complains, that their game is bought legally for less then 10% of users. Their statistics looks artificial, since it's 1st day of sales. As I heard, a lot of players prefer to download "free torrent demo", to see what games looks like. Some of them m...

That suggested steam transporting may be better option in game world. However, I do not like such unrealistic physics and will not use them.
Hehe, my education in a field of energy production, also do not allow me to consider long time steam storage, even in game.

Re: Playing at 'full speed'

I never thought that game speed can be changed, neither had any problems about it. If you think biter attacks are too fast - just build more defense in advance. If you fight for extra territory - do it some automatic way - not by hands, like in shooter.
