Re: [1.1.72] Extremely slow map download speed

You have provided far too little detail to make any useful deductions about what's going on. Does downloading other files from the server go slowly or is it just Factorio that is slow? If you downgrade the link to 1Gbps does it still run slow? What is your network setup exactly? What OS do you use? ...

Re: Unable to bulk tranfer itens to trash

Yes! I tried deleting all my mods. I tried download the game again and playing without Steam... Always the same behaviour! Thanks. With the help of the thread Bilka linked I was able to get out of the broken state by going to the game's Interface Settings and unchecking the option "Flat charac...

Re: Unable to bulk tranfer itens to trash

Loading your save game with no mods installed I get the same behaviour. Can't quick transfer from character inventory to trash slots. How weird.

Link followed by two spaces and newline flows into the next line

If I post a line consisting of a URL followed by two spaces, a newline, and some text on the next line in a comment on the mod portal then the URL flows into the next line instead of ending on the line break. I.e. in this comment on the portal I posted the following https://factorio.com/ Some text o...

Re: I lost all my save files after last game update (GOG+Steam)

Looking at the responses from this old thread on reddit you're not the only one that has experienced losing your saves to a cloud.

If the cloud sync function was properly designed it would never ever auto delete your saves no matter what.

Re: [Nintendo Switch] COOP Latency

That is strange. The only cause for high latency that I can think of is if you have interference on your wifi, but that should have also caused spikes on the buffers and jumps numbers. It would help if you could provide a logfile from the server running with the --verbose option turned on. To turn -...

Re: [Nintendo Switch] COOP Latency

Do the numbers you see for "buffers: 2/0/1" and "jumps: 0" stay at low/single digit numbers, or are they jumping widely around?
Do you connect via the Browse public games menu, the Browse LAN games menu or the Connect to address menu?

Re: Headless dedicated server Unable to load savegame

This is typical behaviour when running out of memory on Linux. The process eating up all the memory is killed (terminated abruptly) and that's that. Try running the command "free -h" without quotes to see how much memory is available on the system and confirm that you have what you expect ...

Re: Where can I find the location the Console commands are stored?

The built-in commands are coded into the executable of the game, they are not stored in a separate file. You can find documentation for them on the wiki.

Read/write access to Game Blueprints

I'm working on a cross server system that makes multiple Factorio servers act as one interconnected one and our players wants to be able to have the game blueprints library shared between all the servers they have so that they don't have to manually update it on each server. For that I need read/wri...

Re: Access to blueprint information in the shortcut bar.

I also require this information and access for a cross server sync feature I have implemented. I can't link spidertron remotes or blueprints/decon/update planners properly on the toolbar when switching servers due to this.

Mod Pack String (proposal)

Mod Pack String is a string format I'm proposing for exchanging a complete mod pack setup between client and server tools that deal with mods. They are similar to Blueprint Strings and for example allow a user to easily transfer a pack of mods including the mod settings between different mod and ser...

Re: Selectable server info text

I wonder why they put the server description in the server tags instead of you know... the description. The description field used to have a prohibitively small 120 character (!) size limit which is why abusing tags as the description became the norm; it was the only way to do it. In FFF #304 Sanqu...

Re: map-gen-settings.json in single user mode?

map-gen-settings.json need to be specified with the --map-gen-settings command line option and is used in conjunction with the --create to create a save from the command line. i.e. you would be running something like this from a terminal: $ path/to/factorio-executable --map-gen-settings path/to/map-...

Re: LAN server issues

Make sure you're port forwarding UDP and not TCP for Factorio. Other than that if direct connect to the server works for Minecraft it should also work for Factorio.

Re: Add support for AVIF

I'd say the concerns around load times and performance are more important (to me personally). As for the mod portal, that's easy to solve: advocate for the size limit to be raised. 'Cause, yeah, disk space is cheap in comparison these days. The file format makes no difference to the performance of ...

Re: Add support for AVIF

There's more to it than just disk space, the mod portal currently has a maximum file size of 262.1 MB and we already see mod authors employing lossy PNG compression in order to make their mods fit into that file size limit. Supporting AVIF would enable mod authors to deliver higher quality sprites i...

Re: Pipe throughput measurements

Doesn't build order and orientation affect the throughput? Does the measured values change if you build reverse to the flow, same direction as the flow, or in a random order? Does the measured values change if you change the orientation of the build?
