Re: Friday Facts #408 - Statistics improvements, Linux adventures

Thanks for all the linux love and support. Been using the non-blocking save for years without problems.
As I mention in my response to viewtopic.php?p=294841#p294841 I think the production stats deserve some love - looking forward to whatever improvements are made.

Re: Solar panel : as if they do not exists

You can have multiple electric networks. I would check to make sure that the solar panels are connected to your main network and not isolated in their own network. In map view there is an option to show all the power lines which you can use to check the connections.

Re: Please make the forum search support underscored words

Sadly the forum search function is less than helpful... I can remember years back trying to figure out the notification 'there are no trains'... try searching it is good for a laugh because the search will filter out all the common terms leaving... nothing... The only solution is to use your preferr...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

There are a lot of ways to do it, but we wanted to keep it simple. So we decided that there is just a single radar channel for each surface (still separated between red and green). This means, you don't have to configure anything, you just connect the wire and you are ready to go. If the radar lose...

Re: Make Steam Turbine a separate research.

True you need all three pieces to be really useful, so it could be argued that they should stay combined, unless they lead to separate uses like flying robot frames. I am starting a new vanilla world, and I have just started nuclear research. It struck me that it would be kind of nice to be able to ...

Re: Make Steam Turbine a separate research.

I could see splitting into three, starting with steam turbine research. Get that, start making the turbines while researching heat. Get that, start making heat exchangers and heat pipes while researching nuclear power. Once that research is complete make a reactor or two and you have what you need t...

Re: Friday Facts #401 - New terrain, new planet

One evening I decided to clean up the old dune decorative graphics as a secret side project. I was already familiar with the assets because I'd used them in the Alien Biomes mod and I knew I could get something good done quickly. One Friday long long ago on a planet far far away: My boss: "No ...

Re: Friday Facts #376 - Research and Technology

I have been playing the nullius mod that has research checkpoints, which are quite similar to the triggers mentioned in this FFF. Overall I like how the checkpoint/trigger concept works out and I can see there are going to be lots of good uses. (Side note nullius is a great mod check it out.) I am t...

Re: Amendment to Train Orders GUI

Really feeling the pain of this one in my nullius run. With recipes that take small amounts of a whole lot of items (13!), it just doesn't make sense to use that many trains when one multi purpose train can easily pick them all up. Setting up the schedule would certainly be easier if the add button ...

Re: Better victory GUI

Yes to supporting mod specific victory... stuff... Also how about giving the player some control? If you are on a death world, you might want to see more kill data, evolution, nests spawned, nests destroyed... If you are doing a challenge like no belts or no bots, the data could show if you achieved...

Re: Is there a specific reason why wood is so useless?

I can't speak to game design decisions, but Wube has always been incredibly supportive of mods and the mod community, and there are a number of mods that build on wood - looking at you, K2, with green houses to grow trees, ability to plant trees, rubber trees for making rubber, and actually using wo...

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

I like the idea of adding some 'visual noise' to items. Higher quality items are checked by QA (quality assurance) teams. They could have a 'verified by XX' mark, where the initials XX are drawn from the backer list (the one that is used for radar, lab, and train names).

Nullius: switch control to another android body

Using the nullius mod. Very excited to make my first android body... I placed it but there doesn't seem to be any way to switch control from my current body to the new one? I didn't find anything relevant when I searched... thanks for any tips!
