Do you think Wube would buy/hire Bobs mod dev(s)?

Would be nice if they incorporated Angel's or Bob's into an "Advanced" option you can just turn on in the game itself. There will always be even more mods that would come along and make things more advanced, but I bet even more users would flip on the advanced mode after they got bored of their vani...

Re: [0.17.31] Inserter -> splitter not working correctly

Yeah I started playing in 0.16 and remember that putting things into a splitter would still allow it to be split to either side, but now it doesn't... maybe when they fixed the compression/throughput of the belts they "fixed" whatever was allowing this to happen. I think having to put the item on th...

Re: [0.17.31] Chemical Plant (Solid Fuel) with dual output inserters

Then do assemblers "request" materials from inserters somehow which would make it appear that way? That would explain why they round-robin direct insertion into multiple assemblers but not when outputting to boxes or into non-assembler things.

Re: [0.17.31] Chemical Plant (Solid Fuel) with dual output inserters

When you have an assembler direct inserting into two other assemblers (or into boxes) they do take turns though, just not when you have two inserters coming from a chem plant?

[0.17.31] Chemical Plant (Solid Fuel) with dual output inserters

When you have a chemical plant producing solid fuel and have two inserters (maybe one going to belt and one inserting into box) they aren't taking turns/alternating like when you have two outputs from an assembler machine.

Re: Lategame mining options are lacking

Containerization of everything like shipping containers that can be filled directly from a few miners and then sent down a conveyor belt and put on a train car without all the stack inserters would be cool. Or some kind of dump truck that treats ore as a fluid you can have dumped into a train car in...

Only until all your U235 goes into nukes.
Or thousands of rounds of Uranium Ammo, cause not only do you have practically limitless electricity from uranium 238, but with u235 you can defend the base at 0 watts of electricity cause gun turrets are magic

Maybe an end-game research called "Strip mining" that allows you to build a 12x12 or 15x15 machine that can mine an area of 20x20?

Re: Cheaper coal-liquefaction tech

Yeah I think coal liquefaction should be about the same cost and prerequisites as advanced oil processing (or included in it if we bump up the cost of AOP). Maybe make Advanced Oil Processing cost 100 instead of 75, but it includes Coal Liquefaction. Especially if we're moving oil patches farther ou...

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

I don't know about you, but land is hard to come by. Every square meter of it you take from the biters, is a meter of it that you'll need to continually protect from the biters. So think in terms of how much ammo/laser electricity/artillery rounds it takes to take and hold a square kilometer of land...

Re: Nuclear power OP

In 0.17 map generation Uranium will spawn farther from starting area so you won't be able to start mining it and stockpiling enough for Kovarex enrichment so early on. And oil patches will be farther out as well so you won't get sulfuric acid to mine the uranium until later in the game too. I think ...

Re: Better compression for savegames

Well I do remember the first time I installed it on my laptop, I copied over my current savefile before opening it and then there was a sync error notification and I told it to use local data instead of the cloud data... and since then it's never loaded the cloud data ever again. So maybe is there a...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

Just don't get rid of hand crafting or non-botting, if I ever get bored with running around and carrying things or having everything go on belts, I'll give bots a try (or if my base gets too large to manage myself) but I think bots are far from what I thought the game would be when I purchased it.

Re: Better compression for savegames

My base instinct is that this isn't something Wube can control. I think that this is done automatically by steam when the game is exited; I've never seen a game that performs it's syncing while the game is running. I'd love to be corrected if I'm wrong though, it'd be cool to know that steam has ca...

I also want the Steam version to sync savefiles to Steam more often. A lot of times I will play on my desktop, save, exit game, and shutdown computer and the next day my laptop only has savefiles from like weeks ago.
