Re: Req: Mod to split the Pipe item into two

I could be wrong, No, that's exactly right. And having a mall to craft pipes (chem plants, refineries) is nice, but there's always the issue of inventory size. I could grab everything in excess before walking 5 minutes to where I need to add 2 chem plants, but just handcrafting them on demand from ...

Req: Mod to split the Pipe item into two

About every single time I want to place a pipe, I find that all my pipes have just been consumed by crafting the machines I want to connect with them. So I'd be very happy if someone could make a very simple (I hope) mod: The vanilla Pipe item cannot be placed anymore. A new item is added that can b...

Make Q on Toolbelt work like left click

I usually use Q to select my items and only go to the toolbelt when there's no matching entity in sight. Which means half the time I press Q on the toolbelt...which does nothing.

Mod licence issue

Why does the Mod Portal allow mod authors to publish mods that come with licences that restrict how the player can play the game? I would have expected it to be limited to source code licences and force mods to be governed under the same rules as the main game. There really should be a warning dialo...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

Ok, back to making harder enemies again. Two ways come to mind when I think about making biters more effective without adding some evolved AI. The one would be to have infiltration biters, ones that take into account turret ranges when pathfinding. The other one would be to have biters that target e...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

That has already been severely optimized. The fact it works at all now instead of just locking up the game shows that. Unfortunately that's just a numbers thing; biters moving is slow and will always be slow. There's nothing that can be done about that. Shooting at a massive amount of them causing ...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

While you're optimising things, may I remind you that researching an arty range upgrade is still a great way to have your game grind to a halt? Even placing a new arty 2 roboport ranges forward from your existing arties is enough to take a lengthy coffee break.

Re: Friday Facts #329 - Campaign reassessment

You are a bit too fixated on "The One Campaign", I think. There's no reason to not include a number of campaigns, scenarios, teaching maps, and so on. Just put the one you have right now into the "campaigns and scenarios" main menu folder, give it a nice name and description, and...

Take a car, and strip it of all what's "unnecessary" for it to be a car. All interior panels, AC, GPS, sound system, whatever is just there for comfort. Is it still a car ? Yes. Would you buy it ? No. Between "works" and "products that is finished, there is a whole world. T...

thumbs down The daylight colors now have to many bright spots that cause your iris to contract. (That's what people mean when they say they're "blinded" by something.) The old scheme has much lower brightness differences and bright spots. That probably doesn't matter in an office environme...

Is it just me or is that train in the video not staying exactly in the center of the screen? Especially when driving horizontally the yellow wagon looks like it's jittering a bit.

However, I never simply do so, because all that does is hide the problem; whatever mistake was being made somewhere is still being made, and who knows what other issues it has caused, is causing, or will cause in the future.

Re: Friday Facts #291 - New Campaign, MP stress testing, HR Icons II

tbh, that new icon for the power posts looks like a mess on the belt in any resolution. The old one has a very defined shape that is easily recognizable in any size above 8px (and at that size you only see colors anyway).

[Twinsen] [0.17.9] Reconnecting to paused multiplayer game confuses the game

If you lose the connection to a server while the game is paused and then reconnect with the "reconnect" button , the client will not clear the "pause" status. It thinks the game is still paused and offer you to unpause it. Playing the game while it shows it's paused is somewhat p...
