Re: Friday Facts #388 - Smaller things for 2.0

I feel the same way, if you visually improve the placement of underground belts and pipes then I would have expected something like this, where the maximum range is painted directly on the ground as long as the cursor with the counterpart is on the same line. https://i.imgur.com/qZ8cdHX.jpg Had alr...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

I am very happy to see that the devs are putting in long days & nights to think deeply about the gameplay in Factorio. This is very heartwarming to see. I am genuinely excited about the upcoming SA, with all the new features included. The jury is still out on 'quality' (better names, please :sho...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

It would be more intuitive if the first tier of quality just had no symbol/dot at all, meaning " no particular quality". The dots can be viewed rather as badges this way. Also there is no need to explain/argue why the dots of Q1 items are not visible in the world and why the symbols you'r...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

New Feature: Optional Recipe Components In order to make higher quality versions, each recipe should allow extra "optional" components, such as blue circuits. Then, when selecting the recipe on an assembling machine (or whatever), we should be able to enable or disable the extra component...

Re: Friday Facts #371 - Apple Silicon

Absolutely brilliant, what an entrance as a new dev!!! Thank you @StragePan for the work and welcome to the Wube dev team. I was already thinking after the .72 update when noticing the mac-arm64 build label that this must have been a major effort for the team with a specialist on their side... and n...

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

Aside from that (and I'd have to go back through everything to verify, which I'm not going to do, so unless there's someone around that knows differently off the top of their head), I believe the original planned release date was by the end of this year, anyway, so really, we're not that far off.

Re: Friday Facts #367 - Expansion news

I hope in the version that will be considered the basis of the DLC, there will be proper mechanics for the liquids, so we do not need to use the currently applied complicated mess to get equal amounts of liquids out of a tank when more than one of the four connectors are used at the same time as out...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

I would love to have a Tesla coil based defense structure, a la Red Alert 2, though. Food for thought? Thanks, now i cant unsee that thing as tesla coil. :D I agree on the RA2 tesla coil base defense structure. maybe use the design as an intermediate between gun turret and laser turret. doesn't do ...

Re: Friday Facts #359 - Crash site: The beginning

The new mining drill design is very nice, indeed a vast improvement vs. the original redesign. :D So this might sound like nitpicking, or maybe it is only me, but I think there is still something 'wrong' with the distance to the belt depending on the orientation: it looks perfect when the miner is p...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

So my two cents, apologies upfront for the strong expressions... Like: New design (the base), looks promising. The front light (yellow per default), especially if it reflect the loaded modules (orange, green or blue). Dislike: The red base color is too prominent, this will overrule anything around i...

Should I try a fresh install? if that's not too much trouble, can you try the fresh install?

Hello, did you install fresh 0.17 or did you update to 0.17 from 0.16?
Hi Posila! Can't recall, to be honest, but I suspect I have upgraded, as the machine is from last year October... Should I try a fresh install?
