Re: Friday Facts #271 - Fluid optimisations & GUI Style inspector

Is it just me or are the HD textures getting more and more clean and the game's general look gets more and more cartoonish and colourful and away from its initial "used look"? Agreed. Dieselpunk -> Comicpunk :( Maybe some kind of additional "tint" could be selectable from the Options? Like "colorfu...

Re: Friday Facts #268 - The modern Biter

Hm. Those new biters left me cold. I find them neither dreading and surely not "cute". Nice to have them in HD, tho and the animation is very nicely done.

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

So why don't we have graphic cards that send out screen refreshes to the monitor when we tell them to? Why not send frame 1 after 10ms, frame 2 after 17ms, frame 3 after 12ms and so on. Why can't the monitor update when we tell them to instead at a fixed rate that we have to keep up with? This tech...

Re: Modular Extensible PnP Factory

I have been enjoying the modular design, and have been using bp's from these posts, since I started playing. I decided to use the new features to put some of the ones from these together in one blueprint book. The idea is that this blueprint book will continue to be updated with improvements, addit...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

I think "behaves like a belt with splitters" is the intuitive result people think they're going to get without knowing anything about it. I guess the question is, is that the right thing they should be expecting? I think this is the catch... how correct is the intuitive opinion? E.g. I would consid...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

At this point, it has thus become easier to just demonstrate that there is no problem with sudden changes in supply/demand. I present to you a simple simulation of a straight length of pipe (I had no time to implement junctions). https://jsfiddle.net/TheYeast/ypwsbftg/ This is sweet! :shock: As you...

Oh happy joy!

So Factorio is going to be Vulkan with both DX11 and OGL as backup?

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

Thank you for the mockups.

However I am not as happy as others seem to be with the outcome so far. For me it looks all over the place, riddled with inconsistencies and very "busy".

Re: Friday Facts #244 - Localised plurals & Modernisation progress

Two words: gettext Vulkan Except where OGL and DX11 cover 99% of the audience, Vulkan is restricted to newer hardware. I guess this excludes windows Vista users. (Only DX10 there) Does Vulkan even work in windows 7? Because that's what I'm using, Windows 7. Windows 7, yes. Hardware support can be s...

Re: Version 0.16.24

I'm not okay with an opt-out and would like to see an opt-in. Listen here. If I had to make that decision, I would not even allow the users to turn off such feature. (And I would only ever write about it in the EULA which no one reads even though everyone should. And shut my mouth about it so no-on...

Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

Reposted for visibility. I went out of my way to completely gut Windows 10's ability to send any form of telemetry. (And in the process found out exactly how much Windows cares about permissions. Which is to say not at all. I replaced their shitty Cortana executable with a blank one because it was r...
