[1.1.61] Empty whitelist filter in selection-tool.*_filters is treated as no filter.

https://wiki.factorio.com/Prototype/Sel ... le_filters when set to an empty table (={}), along with filter_mode set to "whitelist", results in everything being whitelisted, which is consistent with the filter being nil. An empty whitelist should mean nothing is allowed.

So for example with the following setup F - front, B - back, [a-z] - identifiers, -> - connection rail(F a B) -> rail(B b F) a.get_connected_rail(defines.rail_direction.back, ...) -> (b, defines.rail_direction.ba...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Thank you for your effort! This thread was really needed. One note, Compressed Multicross can, I think, be tested with unsafe output. Even though the signals on the output lanes are placed closer than train length apart there are no chain signals there. Additional safe output would only be needed if...

[MOD 1.1.0] Composite Factories: PyBlock

Playing PyBlock inevitably leads to placing down a huge amount of simple blueprints that locally produce the most basic products. Many entities are devoted to producing tar, electricity, tailings, saline water, and other basic things. This leads to a significant amount of entities that no one really...

Re: Train station priority to complement train station limits.

Producer priority is of an issue because the train could repath while being already on route, so for this to work properly train would have to copy this value and keep it when traveling. I guess travelling trains could have the highest priority. Otherwise they could end up stopping anywhere on a re...

Furthermore, refuelling should be the least problem, given 3 slots for nuclear fuel per locomotive.

Re: PyBlock (alpha)

I think it's possible to do better with soil -> stone -> tar -> copper/iron ore + tailings -> coal-water slurry -> aromatics + benzene -> combustion mixture (with biomass provided by logs made from water and co2). I think it's less buildings and uses less power.

Re: Game sounds are uncomfortable and obscure

I play factorio with almost silent sounds so I've never noticed this until this thread. Holy hell the new sounds for entities are so harsh. Playing that inserter sound is pure torture.

Re: Better Compression (Stacking/Boxing/Pallets) Support

If compression gets at least *some* help from the base game then an entity that automatically compresses stuff on the transport line is gonna be at least a magnitude faster than a loader -> compressor -> loader

Re: [0.18.44] Terrible performance of unsaturated furnace entities with many possible recipes.

Seems to not measurably affect vanilla, so probably not high priority now before 1.0. I set up furnaces to process iron equivalent to 12k SPM with a primed inserters to make the belts compressed and furnaces to not be saturated (it requires 6.8 per to compress a blue belt lane, I used 7). I benchmar...

That's why this mod exists. Even the in-game option to remove the raw ingredients display doesn't prevent this slowdown in many cases.

Re: Better Compression (Stacking/Boxing/Pallets) Support

Generally I don't like this idea for vanilla game, and most of the points were presented by others in this threads. I would like it however if compression became better in mods, so incidentally I would like it for the base game to give more tools for that to happen. Nevertheless, I have some thought...

Re: default circuit network signal (max or sum) makes the concept easier to pickup, more resiliant, and a new poweruser

I like the idea, but I would modify it slightly. There is no need for the max/sum signal to be always calculated. They could work just like "anything" or "everything" works now - we already have 2 aggregating signals, why not have more?. Max/min/sum/average could all be useful an...

Re: [0.18.44] Terrible performance of unsaturated furnace entities with many possible recipes.

So I've looked at the performance without modules. I placed around 400 electrolyzers, each with 1200 voids at the outputs. Each void is saturated at about 50%, meaning it works for a second, then doesn't for a second, and it loops. That gives 600 transitions from ingredient shortage -> working per s...
