Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

The same can be arguable with blueprint, where easily plop blueprints everywhere reduce the accomplishment of building a factory. But sometimes we need to compare with the goal set. If the goal is megabases, using blueprint won't reduce the feel of accomplishment. But if the goal is just launch rock...

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

I think it's easier to revert mixing fluid to 0.16, then convert all regular pipe as single pipe (horizontal / vertical), and introduce more pipe types: - junction pipe: can branch like current pipe - one way pipe - pipe splitter: split and and merge liquid Furthermore it's better to introduce easie...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

For adventure mode, in vanilla there already underground belts and pipes, so technically those 2 are in different dimensions relative to the surface one. Additionally, caves can be implemented like factorissimo (which should be similar with diablo 2 cave system). For line of sight, dota 2 did it wel...

Thanks for the report. When I look at the log file it's not showing what's crashing - just that *something* crashed.

Is it reproducible?
Up to now (+- 4 hours gameplay) it's not happening again. Will inform if something happened again.

[0.17.58] Seablock mod - crash when autosaving

Don't know if this is the right place to report (and I don't mind the crash too, but it's asking me to report it). Savefile & log attached. Mods: - seablock & it's dependencies - LTN Crash when: - designing arboretum - autosaving Edit: autosaving is actually success, but crash afterwards. Including ...

Re: Friday Facts #294 - Blog thoughts & Lua documentation improvements

For me, FFF is a form of communication from devs to players. It makes me understand what kind of challenges you face for some improvement and / or balancing, and show how much care the devs got for their game. Forum discussion for each post also amp'ed the benefits. Other than as a good form of mark...

Power Switch to behave like Big Electric Pole

Re: [0.17.2] pipes not completely emptying when they should

Isn't this fluid behavior is same with 0.16? It may be intended or buggy due to delayed fluid algorithm.

Re: Friday Facts #280 - Visual Feedback is the king

Awesome addition. Will the toolbars can be used by mods? It'll be very tidy to use toolbar as mod option panel / toggle button.

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

I don't agree with removing pickaxe. Sure they're almost useless mechanics and become obsolete after construction bots, but that's because construction bots have instant mining speed. That's another topic though. Instead make pickaxe rather expensive. Improve all non-pickaxe, iron and steel mining s...

Re: Friday Facts #262 - Hello my name is: Compilatron

Please tell me the robot assistant is only in the tutorial campaign, or has an option to disable it. Compilatron will be great for the tutorial! (like the companion cube in portal squee) I would suggest it be turned off by default in regular gameplay, with an option to turn it on when the player ne...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

IMO, adding 2 limitations can help to greatly reduce the problem: 1. Fluid flow in integer, or better in 10 (or 2) units of fluid 2. Limit junctions to one way. For T junction there will be 1 input, 2 output each 50%. For cross junction there will be 1 input, 3 output each 33% or 2 input, 2 output e...

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

The thing is optional, if you don't like it don't use it. It is always "not good" if a single person decides what others need/want ;) It's ok to say "this is the way 'we' would like you to play" and disable it by default, but an option for the player to decide would be better. This seems to be the ...

Come on guys - handle the research queue like Civilization and stop trying to reinvent every wheel you see.
