Re: Version 0.18.17

The .16 version had the executables etc. The .17 is different, in that it only has the data directory. your download must've crashed before it was completed. i can confirm there's a 'bin' folder with a binary file inside called 'factorio'. the downloaded .tar.xz should be 39 212 920 bytes in size i...

Re: Version 0.18.11

the contrast of the new button icons is pretty bad on Linux. that's supposed to be a railroad piece? Screenshot_20200310_095210.png it's not really a "contrast". your window, or at least these icons alone, seem to be rescaled in some poor way that makes them blurry. are you using some weird resolut...

Now, a player is forced to click the green checkbox to set the request! wrong ENTER key can now be used to confirm the small "Set request" pop-up windows.

Re: Version 0.18.13

Why did we have to remove the ability to create a blueprint, from the blueprint menu? I'm not sure how it's helpful that when you hit B only the ability to create a blueprint book is available. Alt+B is OK, but why need an extra key? I find the current solution perfect I don't find it unperfect, bu...

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

As a late-game structure the Beacon should look more modern and clean compared to the entry-tier structures, but i kinda agree that it doesn't fit the rest of the world of Factorio right now. This end design looks nonsensical. A bulky structure on 4 thin legs (that reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle...

Re: Friday Facts #338 - The (real) Character GUI

Why exactly does the pop-up need to be two level? It seems like something like this should work just fine and spare us the extra click. The double pop-up and extra confirm might seem strange, but it's made this way to solve the problem of robots bringing you items before you finished setting up you...

Re: Friday Facts #338 - The (real) Character GUI

Why there is separate Thrash only area on logisitic tab? For logistic slot, You can set number of request items 0, and number of max to 0 then you just created the auto-thrash slot. its ok. Perhaps you can make UI even more clean, combine thrash with logistic. Perhaps add a thrash bin icon next to ...

i like most of the ideas here, so to sum up: +1 for a logarithmic scale switch +1 for a statistics pause button (yes, i know, i'm kinda +1-ing myself here) +1 for more precise values (at least this one additional digit) +1 for default interval being about 10 minutes and remembering the last choice +...

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

a work around to this is selecting the items at a greater data set (e.g. 10h). But a pause ability would be nicer, so you don't have to research the items in an updated list. But perhaps the new search function will provide this. Ah yes, i forgot to mention that too. Used that as well, didn't like ...

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

One thing that i would like to see in the statistics GUI is a... pause button. Trying to click the proper icon while they oscillate rapidly between 2-3 places, because the production/consumption of several items is about the same, is really obnoxious. Yes, i could use the search function, but doing ...

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

1 of the 3 always takes significantly longer to finish than the others. That means that the others end up being essentially "free"; the game has to wait for the slowest to be finished anyway so the faster 2 of the 3 get a "free ride" to finish long before game finishes waiting for the slowest to be...

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

This is another nice example of "Factorio is not CPU bound, it's memory latency bound". More cores wasn't going to make this faster - because it was never limited by how fast the CPU ran. uhh what? no. more cores weren't going to make this faster, because no N-threaded program will run faster if yo...
