Re: Performance - Multiple Questions

I want to post you an example Algorithm how to parallelize Inserters. This is based only on public information from Forum and FFF. I don’t know if all my assumptions from this are correct, but this should illustrate an approach. Maybe it can be adapted to your real World. I picked Inserters, because...

Re: Performance - Multiple Questions

All true what you say and not easy. Dont want to drift to this tecnical discussion, because I have no idea of your code and can only guess - mostly being wrong of course, because on what base should I discuss? Its hard and complicated, but I sill belive It can be done. It is not impossible. Offer is...

Re: Performance - Multiple Questions

Read a bit in this named Thread and also in this post: https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-151 Was a great plan explained in this FFF. Yes, some parts are suitable for Multithreading, others are not. Good plan go this way. And the discussion thread is mostly about bashing who said what, and who i...

Re: Performance - Multiple Questions

In fact there are in deed very vew algorithms that can not be parallelized. But those are absolutely reare and related to special mathematically equations. I will read the topic you linked, but for Factory - which is object based - there is no mathematically impossibility that this can not be done. ...

Performance - Multiple Questions

Hi, We have strong Gaming PC's. But our Base is down to 40 UPS, and the game only uses 24% of the (4 Cores, 8 Threads) CPU. Because Factorio do not scale with more CPU Cores, it is not even possible to buy a better CPU with 8, 12, 16, 32 Cores to speed it up. Any tipps for me, what I can do to speed...

Limit Stack size in Container?

Hello, is it possible to limit/set the stack size in a container? I want a Loader to be only able to load a maximum of for example 10 Items to a container. Thought the best Way would be to limit the Container to 2 slots and the stack size to 5. Because maybe the loader loads 2 different items from t...

Found a solution - dont know if it is the official one, but I like to share it for all other google users finding this: Its simple: Listen to the event "GUI Opened" and open your own one if it is the gui you want: script.on_event( defines.events.on_gui_opened, function(event) if event.enti...

Re: Custom "operate" UI for Entities

When you search with Google for "Add custom GUI to Factorio entity" - you find this thread.

... But it is not the solution and implemented in a different way....
So - who can point me to how a custom GUI for a enety is done - instead of this here?

Re: From one moment to another back to Version 0.17?

Was late at night last evening, so I could no longer answer. Tried to get the log - but it only saves the last 2 starts as it seems. So unfortunately it is long overwritten, because i started the game lots of times to try get it working. So all Logs start now with the current installed version: 0.00...

Re: How to get localised string?

Filtering elements in the GUI for substring search of items.

Its a custom GUI - a list with hundrets of items.
Display the name is not a problem, because the widget ist doing the translation.
But Searching for the displayed string ist hard, because you can not read this localised string anywhere.
