Re: Wood used for infrastructure recipes

Use wooden sticks for a foundation thingie that every building/machine needs to be assembled. Could run through prototypes that are placeable and add it to every such recipe, to include mods as well?
Could be replaced by concrete for AM mk3 or something.

Wood/bricks/concrete for belt foundations?

Re: Gravity Electricity storage / stone use

Is it possible to link acumulator prototype properties with miner/pumpjack ones? Only placeable on (new resource) mine shafts.
Like for example pY implements lots of special deep mines for almost any resource.

Re: Why aren't these robots repairing the walls? Makes manual repair take forever.

Part of a roboport network, port based bots already on the way? They'd need to have repair packs aviable, in chests or roboport, then they'd get a repair job assigned. If the job is already assigned, your personal bots won't do anything. The land based ones could be miles away, the game won't abort ...

Re: Design Help Needed: Wireless Power

Not put much thought into it while having breakfast :lol: But what about hidden energy consuming entities in large power poles? A lamp that's always on, assemblers auto set to a void recipe Call them cable resistance. It would make the power draw through fake resistance linear and I'm not an electri...

Re: Version 1.1.31

If it's only a few hours the translators are asking for, and it's not critical bugs which cause hundreds of crash reports and need a hotfix, I don't see a reason why we couldn't wait another day. It's been said above, there is no schedule for releases, so a patch can never be "late". Trans...

Not sure about ALT mode and pipe contents, but this looks to me as if the character isn't hidden behind the underground pipe, but the sulfuric acid icon

Re: Artillery priority issues

Whether this is a bug or not, running into aggroed biters is something you have to deal with yourself. If you load a gun, you have to assume it will be in range of something and therefore shoot it. It might be in an active but yet unrevealed chunk. Therefore you have to protect it and not stand in t...

I recently noticed that it doesn't ask me, but I thought it was always that way in Factorio :roll: The only confirmation I remember is if you want to leave without saving. I think of it more as a feature than a bug. Are you sure? Are you REALLY sure? Last chance to make sure you are sure you want to...

Older savegames from previous games are working.

So i lost hundreds of hours of work :(
If the "older games" you tested have not autosaved while testing them, your auto save should have a working version from "zwölfter versuch"

So this has nothing to do with LTN.

I don't think using a mod to place signals is a good idea. Now I'm interested to see the map :?

This sounds like 2 or 3 problems at the same time Sitting at stops, waiting for something to happen. Do you mean LTN stations, designated as depots? If so, it might be LTN signals not setup correctly (supply/demand) 2 trains facing each other Totally looks like a signal issue. Nothing LTN can ever s...
