Re: Friday Facts #409 - Diminishing beacons

So, uh, 1 minor nitpick @boskid: https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/blog-sync/fff-409-profile.png this is quite clearly a list of sqrt(n)/n, so the new efficiency multiplier of each beacon affecting given building, but the values seem truncated instead of being rounded. for example, sqrt(3)/3 = 0.57735...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

If there is none, then asking for some type of graph smoothing that won't cost any update time normally is the better way to go, yes? oh, sweet summer child. By changing the recipes, in addition to adding needless overhead, you are changing the ratio relationships between them (refinery recipes are...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

And if you add productivity module, then it reduce the speed of the machine and it takes only 0.75 coal ? if you add speed module it use up 1.2 coal, and the inserter cut pieces of coal to keep for later ? It's part of the challenge to have different receipe time that are not only 1 tick in duratio...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

In terms of "data points", there's no point in having more than one data point per tick. Nothing happens between ticks. nobody was talking about the nothing that happens between ticks, why are you? It sounds like something that costs less than a dozen ticks, over multiple hours. How are y...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

That doesn't matter , the result of every entity has to summed to compute the production of a tick, making 60 times per second sums of 1000 numbers because you have 1000 machines, and making 5 time per second, sum of 10 machine because you have 1000 but they do not produce each tick is a different ...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

But the graph for statistic are expensive in themselves too. If you have 55 UPS because you are reaching the limit of your computer, it will noticeably be worse when opening it at the scale of say 5 hours, where you have a lot of data. Such graph i think should be modified to delete or average some...

Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

It's great to hear that you finally fixed the issue caused by multiple items being created per tick. Could we also get an alternative production-handling logic for fluids, that would process small amounts of fluids each tick, instead of handling them in (relatively huge) discrete batches every few ...

I already have a feature request: instantiating a parameterized blueprint into a regular blueprint so you can select options once and then place it a hundred times. This should create a new blueprint that you could use and then discard, or you could place in your blueprint collection next to the st...

Re: Friday Facts #379 - Abstract rewiring

Abstract rewiring, and the next FFF being focused on remote interactions? While it's all cool, i had hoped that you will continue the train theme. I think my most awaited feature is train station conditions - but not ones to leave the station, but ones to arrive there in the first place. E.g. ones t...

Re: [Oxyd] [1.1.49] Biters path to character who started forest fire at any distance

Biters are actually not supposed to chase you across the entire map for the reasons you mentioned. I changed it so that if the player is far enough away, they'll path toward the point where the fire originated – this should be reasonably close to where they took damage, and it makes them move. ok, ...

[Klonan] [1.1.25] Reservations and train limits don't update in train overview GUI.

As the subject says: In the new train overview GUI, in the "Stations" tab, the numbers of reservations and train limits on the right side of the list of stations don't update. It shows a frozen state of the moment that the GUI was opened at, until someone else adds or removes a station of ...

overall i fully understand and agree that it is not supposed to be mind-reading, so i'm perfectly fine with leaving issue #3 the way it is atm. however, the issue #1 looks really dumb with the reversed underground belt - which, from what i can see, was fixed in 1.1.12, so that's gucci. i would perso...

No, I meant you should be able to flip the chemical plant and the refinery in the same way you can rotate them.
That still wouldnt help with blueprints, because the Pipe Layout wouldnt match
it wouldn't match if you flipped EVERYTHING? are you sure?
