Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

There is some merit in the general idea that multiple outputs = the theme of oil processing, and of course the Heavy+Gas solution is compatible with that, while being very conservative in regards to the original BOP. Considering option 1 (solid fuel in science), it does help a bunch as solid fuel r...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

The point of “oil processing only feels like a complicated process if it has multiple outputs” is quite valid. This would allow to keep robots before chemical science. The argument of ro...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

*snip* As for oil products, my sugesstion is to keep current science, flamer fuel and rocket fuel recipes as is, but change following: 1) Change Petroleum Gas input in Sulfur recipe for Light Oil. This, along with Solid Fuel, gives Light Oil a major resource sink, so backing up should be less of a ...

I noticed that the same happens when pasting a blueprint over existing items using the new copy-paste features. Placing the blueprint holding shift does not give a floating message.

Thanks for taking the case, however since the report I didn't have the crash again. I did have Windows and Factorio updates though. I suspect that the issue is solved magically by one of them.

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I admit that I skipped some pages of this thread... Personally I like buffing over nerfing anyways (same for fluid machanics and sideloading), because from a developement perspective removing/nerfing stuff has a greater potential to break existing designs and make the users unhappy. Also overpowered...

Re: Combinator connected to multiple roboports

Alright, I might have expected a bit more smartness... I don't think it is a huge developement effort to check if the contents of the logistic network are already taken into account.
