[0.17.34] - MP defregmenting input action crash

The game crashed after managing to connect to the (very laggy) server, after about 2 seconds of gameplay (in which I began walking around) after the game got unpaused, but also about at the time when the stresstest was being ended. Here is the relevant part of the log. OS: Linux, using Steam. Intel ...

Re: Circuit Network to read Rocket Silo Progress

+1 on this one, I was surprised this is not possible. It would be great to be able to read the percentage or total current progress with circuit network. I wanted to connect lamp indicators to show progress. If you can read fluid levels from vats, why not also rocket progress from rocket silo? Solut...

Ha! I thought they were just in very deep concentration (cocooning) for base building

Trash slots chest: storage chest filled up with requested items...

Hi, I built a logistics "Storage chest" with the entention that the robots would empty my trash slots into it. They did empty my trash slots into it, but they also immediately filled up the ENTIRE chest chock full with transport belts. Transport belts are an item in my logistics requestor slots. Thi...

Re: Version 0.17.12

Awesome to have those stats! I was using the /evolution command a lot lately, especially to check when I'd get behemoths. Seeing the evolution rate and behemoth percentage easily on the spawner now is great :)

Re: Version 0.17.10

Nice! What I'd still like to see is: -way to move items (shortcuts) in the quickbar by dragging them, the middle click method is too much hassle (middle clicking itself is fine, but if you want to swap two items you need to temporarily use a third slot to put one...) -way to open all your blueprints...

Re: Nuclear fuel in tank after using solid fuel

Alright, got it. In that case it was a psychological effect :D "I got nuclear fuel in my tank! It feels so much faster now!". Must have been truly faster only once that solid fuel ran out :)

Re: Turbines not working. Why?

Great, so that means I can add 4 more heat exchangers per reactor in my setup (8 heat exchangers per reactor, 16 turbines per reactor, for 1x2 reactors), and if I later upgrade to 2x2 reactor, I should be able to get 12 heat exchangers per reactor (for a total of 48), correct? With so much power, on...

Nuclear fuel in tank after using solid fuel

Hi, I'm wondering if the following observations are correct: 1.) When driving the tank, a piece of fuel you put in the slot immediately disappears, and fills up the red bar. So you no longer see the item, but the fuel is in the tank now. 2.) If you drive with solid fuel and swap out the solid fuel f...

Thanks for that! I improved the layout now, 4 heat exchangers per reactor with two turbines for each heat exchanger. Much more power :)

Turbines not working. Why?

See the screenshot: 4 turbines are working, but 4 turbines to the right are not working. They also don't work at night, and there is too little power production then (too little power available at night), so it's not due to not consuming enough electricity. Is it the pipes (which are for walkthrough...

Re: Version 0.17.4

With the current blueprint design, I don't understand why the "blueprint book" button in the bar at the bottom doesn't just show my blueprints and allow to use them? Instead all it does is make the mouse pointer a blueprint book to put in the inventory. But when we have this nice bar at the bottom w...

Re: Friday Facts #284 - 0.17 experimental

I had the game hang (happened shortly after setting up a chemical process building, when trying to kill its process steam too got killed). Does it still create a crash report in that case, or how can you debug hangs?

Re: [0.17.3] UI unresponsive to mouse

Update: after trying out various things, the UI came back!

Possibly zooming in and out with the scrollwheel is what made the UI work again.

Any ideas?

[0.17.3] UI unresponsive to mouse

Hi, I don't know what triggered it, but while playing the UI suddenly became unresponsive to mouse. Keyboard shortcuts still work, e.g. escape brings up the game menu, but clicking with the mouse on resume does nothing. Clicking with the mouse on any item in the inventory, quick bar, ... does nothin...

Re: Version 0.17.2

I see! I'm currently using the toolbar more in a way that grows together with my base, so do need to rearrange things in it quite often :)

Got a military and a factory building one so far and soon will have to start adding an oil/pipes related one

Re: Version 0.17.2

I find it very hard to move items around in the task bars. Am I missing something? I found that middle clicking removes an item from it, but even so e.g. swapping the position of two things is very awkward. It would be nice if you could just drag things around in there. Also I'd love to have more th...

Hi, I'm an old time player so I don't know how a new player would truly experience this, but I think the three non destructible buildings in which you cannot change the recipe could confusing because they're the first such buildings you see yet they behave different than the real thing. The first as...
