So any hope for mods on the switch version ??
In the original announcement of the switch version it explicitly said no mod support. Besides all the issues dustyvilla raised, the switch hardware is not very powerful and would not be able to handle many big mods well.

Re: Personal robots prioritizing nearest first

If you're good with mods, there was once a mod that tried to bluff this behavior by dynamically changing the build radius of the personal roboports. I don't remember what it was called, though, and it does add some runtime overhead. Closest First , Closest First for 1.1 , or Closest First With Hot ...

Good to know. Would have been good for this if it also didn't download the link.
Ah, it doesn't download if you click and drag. Just a click does the download.

Then it seems to be a non-loseless kind of compression which is bad , because in Factorio every pixel counts.
As mentioned in the OP, AVIF does have a lossless mode. I've no clue about unpacking time/memory so your other points probably still stand though.

Re: [1.1.32] Error: "Reached id limit for tile." after update

Can't the tile types be increased at all? It seems to be a pretty low concrete ceiling for the modding capabilities of the game. As Rseding has said... It's not going to happen. It would be a memory and performance hit for *every single base game player regardless of them using mods* - that's not g...

Re: Automatically equip best armor

Define "better/best" armor, especially for players who carry multiple armors with different module loadouts for different purposes. Or I could imagine the frustration if you craft a higher tier power armor while your existing armor's bots are working.

Re: Damaged items block inserters from inserting undamaged items into Assemblers

There is no way for a damaged item to end up in a crafting machine without manual action somewhere (at least in vanilla).

Colored concrete would be great, though I'd say it's oversaturated. Everytime people want to color something, they give near 100% saturation. Damn it... Pure colors look synthetic. Also lightness of concrete is very different, I'm not sure whether it is good or not. This is kinda not consistent. It...
