Re: Bugs & FAQ

I find a ton of desert gardens, and some swamp gardens, but I've never see a temperate garden. It's listed in some recipes, so is it supposed to spawn on the map like the other gardens? I also had only desert gardens (and trees) for quite a while, but I eventually found both other types. I think so...

Re: Development and Discussion

And the latest news is that I'm going to be a dad start of next year. Congrats! As for the mod(s), I think the GitHub idea is probably the best. Most of the individual mods are pretty stable. You can get other people to do all the work of keeping them up-to-date, and you just have to swing by every...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

While regular ore smelting gets you 3 plates from 4 ores, advanced gets you 1:1. But steel smelting is 2 steel from 8 iron, while advanced offers 6 steel ingots from 24 iron... the same ratio. There's a slight improvement to the oxygen use but that's hardly a big deal. Smelting ingots is much faste...

Re: Bugs & FAQ - incorrect Product definition

... you use amount and probability together which should not be allowed (but still works). I dont know if this is supposed to be this way but the result is that you get either 8 or 0 out of this recipe. it would be more logical if you would get something between 0 and 8 with a probability of .5. I'...

Am I stupid, what is the dotted high contrast plate? Just a color test item, or a spider-tron part?
I'm pretty sure it's just a test icon.

Re: [0.17.9] Crash drawing path preview in train GUI

I was going to throw some signals down and get on with my game... but I accidentally triggered another crash: Loaded previously-attached autosave. Clicked on train to open GUI. Noticed there was still a "temp stop" listed in the train schedule. (No other stops.) Noticed the train was in "manual" mod...

Re: [0.17.9] Crash drawing path preview in train GUI

I built a new, smaller track loop; I could not get it to crash under any conditions. I suspect there's a size threshold involved somewhere. A few more observations from the original track: Adding any signals on the track (one-way, two-way, one-way the wrong way) prevents the crash. Adding a Y-juncti...

Re: [0.17.9] Crash opening train GUI

More testing: Drove manually from base (West) to middle. Removed tracks so disconnected segments were counted as separate blocks. This might not be relevant after all; I was misremembering how "blocks" are defined. Track pieces which aren't connected, but have overlapping bounding boxes should be in...

Re: [0.17.9] Crash opening train GUI

Reloaded a few more times, tested some things. I think my original guess was right. Pressing "Ctrl" is enough to trigger the crash. Makes sense, the segfault is in the path-preview code. Removing and re-building the train doesn't help. The block-preview on signal placement doesn't crash, but it does...

[kovarex] [0.17.9] Crash drawing path preview in train GUI

What Happened I was about to hop in a train (only one on the map so far) to go to an outpost. The following took place over 2-3 seconds. Clicked on train to open GUI. Dragged map over to the east, ~2 screens. Hovered over track and held Ctrl. Nothing happened; I expected a temporary-path line. (I m...

Re: [0.17.1] The three undestructable non-recipe-changeable differently-feeded buildings in new tutorial might be confus

I very much agree with OP: everything in the tutorial which exists in Freeplay should behave exactly the same. That shouldn't actually restrict anything. The tutorial needs an assembler that can't be removed, has a fixed recipe, and requires no power? Sure! Just make it obviously different from the ...

Re: Friday Facts #269 - Roadmap update & Transport belt perspective

As a bonus, the underground belt structure has a variant which shows a hole when you side-load into the underground belt. No! The underground belt structure should always have the side-load hole. Otherwise how are new players ever going to figure it out? The hole is quite an edge case that you rare...

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.11

Bad news: Almost everything else that I got forced on is really annoying. All higher science recipes changed. Do you really need to screw this over with each mod version?

Re: [0.16] Sea Block Pack 0.2.11

I'm only using about 40 farms to get enough fuel oil, the better farms with advanced technology yield about 10MW fuel value per farm. Less earlier of course, but even ~4MW fuel value per farm is quite impressive. (Basic arboretum produces 4.3MW fuel value if processed as far as charcoal, later this...

Re: Bio recipes seem very off

Thanks for doing the math. You're absolutely right, the new gardening stuff in the bio-processing mod isn't remotely balanced. I think Angel was going for more realism with the long crop-growth times, but he didn't make any other changes to counteract that. The outputs need to turn into vastly more ...

1. Make sure all your mods are enabled. It's possible some of them aren't active. 2. If that still doesn't work then you could try to get more information about what the specific problem is. Assuming your error is still in override-functions.lua:486, find that file in your mods folder (angelsrefinin...

Re: [0.15] Sea Block Pack 0.1.6

foxxxy_j, try this:
  • Delete all your mods.
  • Install the seablock modpack.
  • Try to start a game.
  • Assuming that works, re-install other mods one at a time.
