Re: Artillery Wagon Inactivity Change

This would break train schedules that use "2 seconds inactive or empty" as their firing station condition. With your suggestion, how would you have a train sit at a station until the artillery wagons have cleared all nests in range OR it's out of ammo? Think one train handling multiple fir...

Re: Cliffs as natural rail elevators

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure rail elevators have to be longer than the longest rail entity for them to work.

I'm very much guessing how they implemented elevated rails, but it seems like the obvious wat to do it for minimum effort.

Re: Player Inventory Width Setting/Value

Seems more like a good argument for allowing UI/client-side only modding, because I can almost guarantee this won't be the last thing that someone can think of where one person might want one thing changed in the UI whereas someone else doesn't. Actually good colour-blind settings spring instantly ...

Re: Compound Buildings: Upgrade through Placement

As you mention "either as a vanilla feature or added through a mod", I feel like this might already be possible. I haven't really looked, mind you, but there is at least the on_pre_build event that could be used for this. I don't know if this covers everything or if there are other simila...

Re: Add circuit controls to splitters

I really wanted to control my splitter with combinator circuits before for the mixed bus and randomly placed assembler cells. I had to use inserters instead, but it was ugly and I would have much preferred controlling splitters instead. This would let us do some really cool stuff with multibus setu...

Re: The emoji/icon button needs a keybind

The mess of relocating your mouse hand is why I don't include text in my stations names anymore.

I just use logi chest icons to say what type of station it is, which makes almost every station name just two symbols.

Re: Rollback Netcode?

Factorio does use something like this; they call it latency hiding. And due to the way the engine works, you can't avoid lag when using it with anything that interacts with an inserter. It's really clean with the engineer unless you're F-ing a belt or swiping machines. But vehicles interact with in...

Re: add new signal RGB (Friday Facts #388)

Voting to trust the colour nerds on this.

But also give us an option for RGB, because familiarity has value, even if it's a bad system.

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network / Roboports emit signals with missing blueprint items

The scanner for Recursive Blueprints+ provides a solution I think is superior. It can do any area (up to a max size), anywhere. And it can be configured with signals in many different ways to filter the output. And it doesn't affect UPS when not in use, it only scans for one tick when you tell it t...

Re: Roboports should output missing materials to circuit network / Roboports emit signals with missing blueprint items

(*) the problem is, that the roboports overlap on construction range. So it is not just adding an extra list “roboport -> constructions within this roboport”. This would add constructions, that exists in two or more roboports, you would count them twice or more and need to filter out those doublett...

So what you want is a utility that updates mods without hogging your screen? That's not what I understand. What I understand is : Give us the choice to update mods upon quitting the game, so that it's possible to update mods without having to start the game twice. Something like "update mods a...

What's wrong with the current system, where you have to open up the mod menu and press a button to update mods and then you can either close or restart?
