Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

This... Doesn't look like it belongs with the rest of the machines. It's cool! I like it! But it doesn't belong and that bothers me. I already hate using beacons because of how they push you into making boxes of them freakin' everywhere, trying to imagine what that looks like with this design makes ...

Re: Friday Facts #337 - Statistics GUI and Mod Debugger

If kills is merging into production statistics, why not go all the way and have one unified statistics window with a single keybind? This was my inital thought as well, but on reflection, it's possible to have multiple different electrical networks and you need to click a pole on the network you wa...

Re: Friday Facts #337 - Statistics GUI and Mod Debugger

The only slight tweak I would make here. Satisfaction shoude change to Demand. It should be the electric network is demanding 38.7 GW of power, and producing 38.7 GW of power. I believe this is the standard wording for power networks. It always confuses me what satisfaction is when i initally look,...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

The more I think about this, the more I think the problem that you're trying to solve is somewhat disingenuous or at the very least, not the right problem. Most of the stuff you listed as oil products have technologies of their own. If a player has every single one of those things but hasn't built a...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

As an experienced player, the oil changes make me cringe. While the ability to lock off the individual fluid ports is awesome and closing the water port is a good idea for basic processing (although you should probably also try to prevent the player running a crude oil pipe next to that port so that...

Re: 0.17 Roboport Provider/Requester

Use a Buffer Chest instead. Roboports function like Storage Chests so a Requestor Chest will take from them, but a Buffer Chest will ask for items from a Provider Chest instead.

Actually this was an issue in Focus Testing when explaining that pollution makes more biters. Guess what the reaction was? "Well Id better make less pollution then!" *facepalm*
<facepalm> I mean, that's technically correct but completely suboptimal. ^.^;

Gave it another go for funsies, trying to pollute harder without making things simply for the sake thereof. I think I'm getting the hang of this "no underneathies and splitters" thing. =^.^=

[0.17.5] It's not hard folks... >.>

So, I read FFF #284 and the line "Actually no, it isn’t so hard for new players. It is hard for veteran players," prompted me to say, "Challenge accepted!" So I updated (would love it if you fixed the updater sooner than later, please and thank you!) and settled in to give this a go while frequently...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

I like everything described in this FFF, except some of the names. A lot of people have complained about red and green already but I can see where you're going with them. Utility, however, is an awful name. Hi-tech is perfectly fine for what it covers and meets the design goal of having a unique fir...
