Re: Friday Facts #364 - 1.1 stable

Wube's next project: reFactorio. It's actually just the source code of Factorio and the goal of the game is to keep tearing out stuff and rebuilding it because it became a bottleneck.

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

When I saw 1.0 was done I immediately thought "too bad Spidertron didn't make it in." And then I watched the trailer. It just hadn't been mentioned for so long because you wanted to keep it as a surprise! That reveal was just perfect.

Re: Friday Facts #356 - Blueprint library for real

Just here to say thank you and one minor bit of feedback on the blueprint library (this isn't specific to the update): I always found the definition of "my blueprints" and "game blueprints" confusing. Is "my blueprints" all of my blueprints across different saves, or do...

Re: Friday Facts #350 - Electric mining drill redesign

Gotta agree the model itself looks great, but the animation at full speed looks more like it's injecting something into the soil than drilling. It's spending more time jumping from place to place than actually drilling.

If you're referring to the imgur gallery, you should be able to just click on an image to get a larger version of it or right-click and open in new tab/window for the full-size version.
That's what I did. It just loads the same image (640 wide) and none of the text is readable.

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

Are there high res versions of the organization charts? The ones in they stickied thread at the top are blurry and unreadable.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Reading this thread and the one from the week before is making me depressed... 80+ pages of suggestions on how to handle this in a better way but it all seems so pointless, the changes just get pushed through anyway. Sadly this pattern keeps getting more and more common. Features are just straight u...

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

I just want to say thank you for adding the obstacle avoidance back to the rail planner. Straight up removing features in order to streamline the UI never sat well with me, and for me this took away the entire point of the rail planner. If I want to create straight lines that ignore the environment ...

Re: Friday Facts #290 - Rail building changes & High-res icons

I don't post here often but this seems important enough. I have to agree with everyone about the rail planner changes being the bad kind of streamlining. If the way to use a feature is not immediately obvious to new players, the solution should never be to trash that feature entirely. I remember whe...

Re: Friday Facts #283 - Prepare to Launch

I hope the fluid algorithm problems are still solvable. The new rocket silo looks good, but it would be even better if the lights kept flashing all the time (and maybe a bit slower, to feel more "heavy"). Also the abrupt linear upwards movement and stopping of the rocket looks a bit fake, ...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

Since it was yet another thing that had to be explained somehow, we decided to just remove it. This is such bizarre reasoning. The more I read it and try to make sense of it the more confused I get. Wasn't one of the main things you were working on improving the tutorials/campaign to better introdu...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

I don't like being negative here but this is the first time I completely disagree with changes described. This whole FFF reads like someone found some superfluous mechanics and simplified them, but then everyone went overboard trying to match that and started cutting out huge chunks of core gameplay...

Re: [kovarex] [0.16.25] Gaps moving backwards when items put on belts

No, they don't move backwards, but the gaps standing still looks extremely weird and doesn't make sense. The items at the front should stop, and the gaps behind them should close. Supposedly this was fixed though, but it's in 'not a bug' forum. I really hope this is not intended behavior because it ...

Re: QoL Ore Visibility on Preview Map

Definitely agree. I love the new map preview, but for my last game I was tweaking the resource frequency / richness to generate an ideal train world, and I ended up still having to manually start the game, use the console to explore around the starting area, and check the minimap for resource patche...
