Re: [0.17.0] Unwinnable situation in tutorial

That is an obvious "don't do that" situation. There was also a tentative plan around 0.17.3 or so to guarantee in the level design that harvesting all wood gave the player an odd number of wood bits, so it's not possible to use all your wood on chests that cost two wood without leaving one for powe...

Re: Cracked Factorio PROBLEMS?!?! FIX THIS!

At best DRM is a nuisance to legitimate purchasers of the game, at worst it can cause serious problems including draining resources away from processes the user actually needs them for, disabling and sometimes even bricking hardware, and installing rootkits/malware. (Sony's DRM was a good example of...

Mind you, this isn't practical at all with vanilla recipes since fuel and locomotives are so cheap, but I'm still proud I worked this out! vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe1bUSDDeKs mods: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Inventory%20Sensor https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Automatic_Coupler_016 https...

Re: Cracked Factorio PROBLEMS?!?! FIX THIS!

Headless definitely has “verify user identity” turned on by default. I know because I had to turn it off temporarily to log in as a user who changed their name so I could drop their inventory in a chest for them, since inventories are tracked solely by name, not by any immutable identifier.

Re: [0.17.0] Laser tower beams affected by daylight (dark at night)

Re: [0.17.0] Unwinnable situation in tutorial

Ive found lots of lose conditions however I reported this particular setup because the relatively few trees on the starting map relative to other starting resources (it took me only a few minutes to harvest all of them,) the availability of the shift-click shortcut, and the fact that cancelling hand...

Re: Train-side stop disabling and a toggle for station skipping.

Or you can have one train serve multiple purposes based on which stops it hits instead of stacking single-purpose trains everywhere, that’s the efficiency and compactness I’m talking about.

Re: Train-side stop disabling and a toggle for station skipping.

Solution: don't do that. Congratulations you just got someone to register solely to suggest that you could try not being a jerk. As for stackers, that’s a great workaround for a feature that should be in the game. I’ve been frustrated by the limits of the signaling system and the fact that you have...
