Service is not responding shortly after connecting

I'm trying to run a server, and I've had this issue with a variety of mod selections. Sometimes it works, sometimes it fails with “Service is not responding”. Sometimes there is an error “peternlewis’s computer or network could not keep up with the server, so they have been disconnected”, except my ...

Re: [1.1.59] Krastorio and QoL mods desync

No ideas what would cause the Server Not Responding when I change the mods? I'd really like to update the mod as the desyncs are quite annoyingly frequent and the crashes that sometimes happen can lose a few minutes of build.

Thanks.

It looks like the servers are currently having issues, folks have been reporting both here on the forums (https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=102726) and on the discord. May just need to give it some time or disable verification for the time being. Why would that only affect my ser...

Re: [1.1.59] Krastorio and QoL mods desync

OK, I can't really determine if this fixes the issue because if I make any changes to the mods on the server, then after syncing the client it connects and then quickly gives a Server is Not Responding and drops the connection. It does not seem to matter what mod change I make - if I upgrade Placeab...

Seems to happen shortly after connecting. Frequently when you first use “q” or first place an item.

Re: How-to: Two-way rails

Great post, still highly relevant. I tend to use two lane, one way rails around my base and for nearby initial outposts, and nearby initial resource patches. In the last game I played, I expanded the main bus of the rail system to four lanes (two each way) to enhance throughput in that area. Then I ...

In m opinion this will not implemented. Because of the enormous CPU-effort for this kind of search (*); a search over the whole map could be used as DoS-Attack by griefers, or it must be programmed quite differently. The suggestion I made requires only filtering the display of icons on the map so I...

I believe he meant that the blueprints should just be allowed to break. No, I meant you should be able to flip the chemical plant and the refinery in the same way you can rotate them. I'm not sure why that would require an additional recipe - presumably rotations do not require additional recipes. ...

It's not like allowing flipping of the plants changes the game in any meaningful way, could even lead to ...

TL;DR When dragging belts in 1.1, you can lock it to a direction, which is great much of the time, but if you start dragging perpendicular to the initial belt, it should allow free form belt placement.

Load/Save dialog does not fit

Display 1280 x 800, Factorio UI at 100%, the Load/save dialog doesn't fit the width.

The panel is non-resizable and seems needlessly wide.

Either it should be resizable, or better yet it should simple fit within the screen.
