Re: Debugging an issue: Trying to find what is causing robots to self destruct

Well I’ve reviewed the code for all the mods and the scenario and the word “robot” hardly shows up, it does so only in the scenario and in that case it’s giving each player a set amount of robots on joining.

I am going to have to find a way to reproduce offline and then try disabling mods.

Re: Debugging an issue: Trying to find what is causing robots to self destruct

Thanks. But it doesn't show me what code is destroying the bots, and that's the problem. Also if it's an interaction between two mods, finding that disabling one stops it doesn't help find the second one. It would be a lot of combinations. Also it only happens when bots are forced to fly long distan...

Re: Game download files: Slow to verify and unpack on macOS

Sorry for not seeing your response on a timely basis! I did some testing and have some results that may surprise you. If I take the latest DMG (factorio_alpha_1.1.35) and copy the Factorio.app out of it into a folder, it takes multiple minutes to do so. The `diskimages-helper` process is pegged near...

Debugging an issue: Trying to find what is causing robots to self destruct

I run a few multiplayer servers. Two are using the OARC scenario developed here https://github.com/Oarcinae/FactorioScenarioMultiplayerSpawn as well as a small handful of mods: AutoDeconstruct miniloader some-corpsemarker ElectricTrain Squeak Through Construction bots that are traveling long distanc...

Game download files: Slow to verify and unpack on macOS

This is more of an observation than a bug or help report. When I download a new DMG from the Factorio download site, the DMG file itself goes through an integrity check that is VERY slow. We are allowed to skip this in macOS. But then the unpacking from the DMG to Applications is just as slow. This ...

Re: [MOD 0.18] KRASTORIO^2

Also, I can't find Nitrogen. I see Ammonia, which requires Hydrogen and Nitrogen. Once that was unlocked, I should have had the ability to generate/make Nitrogen as well, yes? I don't see it in the Intermediate Products. What am I missing? What's the trick to this? I can't find it either ... (never...

Re: [Oxyd] [0.17.77] Multiplayer Core Desync

I run 4 headless multiplayer servers and immediately go desyncs after upgrade to 0.17.77. The larger the map, the quicker I desync (or at least it feels that way). If you want another report you can download this one from a rather huge map: https://squiddog.org/desync/desync-report-2019-11-14_17-41-...

Re: Friday Facts #308 - Not stable quite yet

Man I love the Nauvis Collapse map! I'm running a password-protected Multi-player, and it's a beast to host. Takes people minutes to join (I have gigabit to my house) and it's running in a separate process on my desktop (iMac Pro). I might start over now that I know a few things (like the electricit...

And the 0.17.41 is 404-not-found, while .40 is still posted and bad (at least from my region of the world).

[0.17.40] macOS download is bad, 124MB

Automated upgrade failed, went to download from the web site, and the file is only 124MB in size and obviously doesn't work.

[Koub] Moved to Off topic BTW, what's exactly the point of your thread ? If you've played Factorio with the OARC multiplayer scenario, where you spawn in a protected island with starter resources, surrounded by a thin moat, this view might mean something. Factorio is now off topic? Or just fun Fact...
