Re: [0.18.45] Energy weapons damage and Laser turret shooting speed don't say they affect personal laser defense

Your post is very timely, as I JUST started launching rockets and getting space science yesterday (many, many hours into my first base!) and I was confused by this as I was selecting infinite research options. Thanks for confirming that personal laser is affected by the research, because I don't use...

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

there is mod called squeak through that allows walking between most entities, i use it for most of my modded games, some mods are incompatible. ideally the devs could make it so that most entities hit box was slightly smaller to allow this functionality natively. imo walking through the small space...

Re: Version 0.18.43

Thanks for cranking out the updates!

Any plans to tweak the new blueprint functionality? Some good discussion and suggestions (including low-impact / low-risk suggestions which could feasibly be implemented before 1.0) in this thread:

Maybe at minimum the size and brightness of the indicator light could be increased? It's not easy to see.

Re: Blueprint Library Feedback

What if, as a small design tweak, the devs made the following change: Assume a BP is in inventory and currently linked on the hotbar. When a player moves the BP from inventory to the library, what if the game automatically deletes the hotbar link? To me, silently updating the hotbar link that once ...

Re: Load Game in Background

If this isn't feasible I'd at least like the ability to alt-tab out of the game during the load screen. Right now the game seems to be stuck full screen until the loading completes, and Factorio takes a surprisingly long time to load for a 2D game, even on an SSD. Interestingly, Factorio always loa...

Might be an engine limitation or similar that prevents this, but if feasible it would be a nice addition.

I've read this whole thread hoping it would shed insight into the whole global reference new feature, and I'm just as confused as before. Can anyone point me to an ELI5 description of how it's supposed to work?

TL;DR
When placing a blueprint with shift or a ghost over water the game should add ghosts for landfill automatically.
This would be terrifically useful. Anyone know whether this is on the agenda for post-1.0 support?

Re: Pressing escape while in a blueprint should bring you up one layer.

I like there being a shortcut to go up a level. Personally, I would prefer "U" (if not already taken), as it's the shortcut to go up a level in Gmail and many email programs. Alternatively, ESC could exit out of the library screen completely, or perhaps have some other function (such as im...

Re: Blueprint Library Feedback

1. I can create a blueprint and it's in my hotbar/inventory. I then place it in the My Blueprints for overall storage. It appears to copy the blueprint there. I no longer want it in my inventory (because of limited space), so I delete it. The blueprint vanishes from the Blueprint Library! Is one su...

Re: Blueprint Library Feedback

Maybe you shouldn't be allowed to delete things directly from the quickbar at all. And the game could force you to go through the library menu for that. But other people may consider that inconvenient I think this could be a reasonable safeguard. Blueprints stored in one's library should be hard to...

Based on the scope of this patch, is this the last one prior to transitioning to version 1.0, unless there is a client crashing bug?

Hiladdar
My guess is there'll be at least one stability / bug fixing patch prior to 1.0.
