Re: Friday Facts #350 - Electric mining drill redesign

The current new design of mining drills has a major flaw. When will you redesign it again? The image speaks for itself: Screenshot from 2020-07-24 13-30-24.png As you can see Factorio has a huge awesome level of detail, all components are designed to cover as few as possible of the above tile! All c...

Re: Friday Facts #318 - New Tooltips

Uff, I have been using it for a while now, BUT In my opinion, there is something wrong with the sorting of entries. The whole design looks really nice, but its kind of darker and more details, which distracts my eyes from the relevant data. In the previous Tooltips, you had Signals and the "rem...

Request API Help: Cursor_Stack set/reset

Main issues (summary): - Putting item from cursor back into inventory (exactly like 'q'). - Setting rotation of the cursor_stack (workaround "blueprint"). Problems: - Putting item from cursor back into inventory: -> Apparently there is a "clear()" function on the "cursor_st...

Re: Typewriter (Keyboard; Text display; Cursor)

My final version is done! It took me some time to finish this version, simply because I forgot my project... And yesterday I noticed it again. But I had to move around constant combinators to compress the whole build, without breaking combinator wires, so I "quickly" wrote a mod for that. ...

Re: Digital Display, Yay!

I recently stumbled across one display version out of this Thread. So I made my own version of it. It also uses size 3*5, but additional has some color support. It uses 4 combinators per digit though. I am really impressed by putting the value to shift and the shift amount into one signal, but I did...

Small Number Display, colored

Ages ago I created a simple 7-Segment display (4*7) as it can be found everywhere. But yesterday I saw, that one can easily build small compressed pixel displays (3*5) for number usage. So I immediately put everything I learned into one build: Screenshot from 2019-11-02 12-59-19.png As shown on the ...

Re: [0.17.72] Much FPS lag, some UPS lag when next to many lamps

Yes indeed, this helped a lot restoring some of the lost FPS. The worst FPS I get is 45fps now, while UPS stays at almost 60 where it belongs. And no I did not manage to properly get my GPU to run. So yes its using the internal GPU intentional. -Never had issues with that though- *EDIT: By now I man...

[0.17.72] Much FPS lag, some UPS lag when next to many lamps

What I did: - I build a 7 Segment number display, which I used in some of my worlds. No mods. What happened: - When the 7-Seg is turned on and the map or the player sees the lamps (or gets near them), the FPS drop from 57-60 down to 10-30. Turing the lamps off, resolves this issue. - It does not mat...

Re: [0.17.31] Tutorial/Scenario: Persistent help box - didn't disappear or wrong location

Apparently it happened again. I am unsure why this time. But its for the assembling machine which produces the first research packs.

Placing an assembler fixed it this time. (The hint box was clearly too small for one :P) Dunno what it wanted me to tell even.

[0.17.31] Tutorial/Scenario: Persistent help box - didn't disappear or wrong location

Just got the latest Factorio and started the tutorial/scenario to get the vibe back. What happend?: The hint box, indicating where to place the furnace, did not disappear, even after placing the furnace. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xkiwcdapqrkgsux/Screenshot%20from%202019-04-13%2010-28-15.png Screensh...
