Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

By the end of the blog post, I had a distinct feeling that you have enough grievances/stuff built up to start developing Factorio 2 :D I mean I liked almost everything, and some of the things that require rebuilding almost from scratch are a good excuse to do Factorio 2 :D Also, you could make a lot...

Re: Nauvis Post Collapse (16GB ram minimum required)

Thanks for the map, started the playthrough on the FactorioMMO community - first episode lands in the evening 22nd on the channel. We did hook up to those generators immediately :) One thing i will say - running the map requires very fast CPU. Map neeeds optimizing - too many entities and too many e...

in the early game you build a lot of blue level belts
Subjective game stages based on experience, indeed. :lol:
True, these days if I go for a bus, I just design it for the blue belt from the ground up.

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Another possible downside is that now I can't choose to stay with Basic Oil Processing for more Heavy Oil. I think Heavy Oil is more valuable than you realize, and Advanced Oil Processing doesn't really generate enough of it a lot of the time. Incidentally, if basic refining gave only light oil, pl...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

That is actually another balancing downside - in the early game you build a lot of blue level belts - they eat Lubricant like crazy. I always have to switch to Basic Oil Processing for heavy oil until I scale-out significantly, on my last run I was not getting enough heavy oil by far and I was also ...

Water tiles: add a flag that tile can or cannot be landfilled

Came out of this: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=73570 Since it is not a bug, but intentional, I propose to actually make it a thing so in the editor when crafting maps we are able to make any water tile fillable or non-fillable. Since shallow water tiles already have a non-fillabl...

Re: [0.17.58] Unable to landfill shallow water tiles

Understood. Follow up question then - can, maybe, a fillable type of tile be added? Same graphics, just an additional landfillable type? Using a mix of fillable and non-fillable tiles in the editor can give a lot of interesting options for creating maps :) Edit: Actually to think about it - this can...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Let's get back to what actually matters in Factorio - numbers, ratios and efficiency (all kinds)! :) I get that you're being semi-facetious here, and I feel the same way but... not really ? Taking all that into account, it is still performance and time-wise easier to deal with a basic recipe than s...

[0.17.58] Unable to landfill shallow water tiles

Probably been there since the introduction of the tiles, just nobody had messed with them yet to the level and scale I did yesterday :) Had a hand-crafted map (basically replaced all the water tiles with shallow water for gameplay reasons on Gridlock) and during the game found out that you actually ...

On a second thought, what I like most about the oil changed has been pointed out by the 5th horseman here I have NEVER been able to remember which of the refineries both inputs I had to "reserve" during basic oil processing use for water with advanced oil processing use. Each and every time, I had ...

Re: [0.16.51] Server with custom port sets different port than specified

Also maybe check that game is connectable from the ping-pong server and fail loudly if the port is actually not reachable? It sucks to have users report after 2-3 hours that they can't enter a server and 80% just thought "oh well, I'm gonna go elsewhere". But it is reachable. The ping-pong server s...

Re: [0.16.51] Server with custom port sets different port than specified

We think we did identify why this might be happening - it is possible that Docker needs some stern configuration directives that do not allow it to have a mind of it's own. So far we do not know if that is even possible, but it also does not make it easy because it is random. The failure rate is bet...

Re: [0.17.56] Performance issue with large rcon commands

I was going to move it to Not a Bug myself when I noticed Kovarex was faster. Because, really, it isn't one – it's working as designed. Starting with 0.17.57, RCON commands are compressed internally, which should speed this up. You will also be able to tune the segment size in the next release, so ...

Re: [0.17.56] Performance issue with large rcon commands

From clusterio team member's conversations with Oxyd, it seems that this is due to having to synchronise with clients. Is there a way to allow us to run rcon commands that do not interact with clients outside of this restriction? No, there is obviously not as the command affects the gameplay. Fragm...

Also this starts to rear it's ugly head under high load aka close or at 100% cpu utilisation wall.
