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...

Re: Weird FPS/UPS decrease during item craft lookup

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 and they are hard to m...

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...

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

Thanks for looking into it. That's something I have not expected. With that information I'll look into this again tomorrow, because I still think there is some noticable cost to such entities even if they are not moduled - I made the change on a pymods community map where no modules were used and th...

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

I believe it already caches the previous recipe. The problem is that when it's not saturated it looks for others (because there may exist a recipe that takes 100 water and voids it and also a recipe that takes 10 water and voids it. Imagine the first one being executed and leaving 20 water in. The s...

[Rseding91] [0.18.44] Terrible performance of unsaturated furnace entities with many possible recipes.

PyIndustry adds entities that can void fluids/gasses/items (ingredient is converted to 0 water). They are of type "furnace". There is a in the order of a few hundred possible recipes for each such entity. After changing the type of the voiding entity to "assembling-machine" the entity update stage t...

Re: 4-way intersections: Throughput and deadlocks [image heavy]

It looks like the multicross just compressed. I tested it briefly and gets about the same as the multicross. Yes! I was playing with multicross and was bugged by how much space is wasted in the corners. This should have the same performance if I didn't screw up. Should have probably mentioned that....

Re: 4-way intersections: Throughput and deadlocks [image heavy]

A 2 lane RHD 6-car intersection of size 4x4 chunks. I was unable to find any smaller with the matching throughput. I think the smallest one that matches this one in throughput is about 5x5 chunks. Last time I tested it was ~87/min. It would be nice to get it verified by someone else and included in ...

Hello, I got an error with your helpful helmod recipes mod when using the transport drones mod, I thought it was a mistake on Klonans end, but he was nice enough to provide a fix.

Alternatively:
Unchecking this does indeed remove it from the tooltip but the performance drop is still there. It hasn't changed with the last update that fixed some of this stuff.

Re: time for >60fps

Smoother camera movement and moving items when in hand (and guis generally) would be enough.
I always play creative with 144 ups just because it's so much better on my monitor. For legit playthroughs, not so much choice sadly.

I think it would make more sense for undo, since with copy/paste you always see the result.

Re: Optimization idea: abstraction

Factorio doesn't update assembler progress every tick. Just when product is made or something else happens. At least that what one of the devs told me on reddit when I brought up the topic. As for the "abstraction". To even make it feasible I think it would require the user to specify an area and th...
