[1.1.11] Drag-placing still places underground segments when rotating out of range and 2 other issues

to sorta continue https://forums.factorio.com/94359 OOJ3eSkDme.mp4 OOJ3eSkDme.mp4_snapshot_00.06.647.jpg during drag-pacing, when you rotate the belt after you move too far to place the first belt in the new direction, you get an underground belt segment - and a reversed one for that matter! I also ...

Re: Version 1.1.8

Awesome GUI! Suggestion: - Remember open tab and selected station/train. Maybe remember even scrollbar position. It is be useful for manage all stations one to one with same name. In this moment I want visit all my crude oil patchs and for every station I select second tab, scroll the scrollbar nam...

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?

Re: Friday Facts #363 - 1.1 is getting close

character tab was rarely used, because it wasn't developed to its full potential i used it to change the color of my character in a civilized way. rarely, but basically at least once every game. i used it to see the actual proper numeric values of my batteries and shields. i used it to enable/disabl...

Re: Friday Facts #362 - Menu simulation, Spidertron, Ghost building, Confirm button

love the changes. will placing/force-placing blueprints change the rotation of existing belts etc., or does it work only with manual ghost placing? also: 1.1? If i'm not mistaken that means having to change the Factorio version in settings of all mods. Are there any actual backwards-incompatible mod...

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

Just have a fuel train that drops fuel off at every station yeah... that's one of the workarounds that i don't like. and one that is not even possible in some cases. If it is possible to route the train to a fueling station, then how can it be impossible to send fuel to a station on the train's rou...

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

There is some logic " a manager" which controls traffic. It is not just limiter, it is traffic controller. On top is easier to talk about the feature as manager rather then limiter. Perhaps it would be nice to make it work as technology to research. In a way you're right that there's a sort of trai...

most of the time, if i want to have about a full stack of something, i set the requests to something like from 80% or 90% of a stack size to one stack, so when bots deliver slightly more than the minimum, neither i get another stack, nor they have to fly all the way back to put it to some random st...

Re: Version 0.18.34

i mean, if you just set something to be in the range of 100-100 (or whatever is the stack size for that item) then it will not create a new stack either... Say you set 1k belts and you mine some belts up, then you have 11 stacks of belts tying up inventory space now. That can be mitigated by trash ...

Re: Version 0.18.31

the point was that despite what you wrote it is NOT redundant now, and will not be made redundant even if they add this indicator to new assemblers. It will only be redundant if A L L machines get this indicator, and it will be as clearly visible and as configurable as Bottleneck is. https://media....

Re: Version 0.18.31

Not to mention that the bottleneck indicators are now made redundant by the built-in indicator on the new miner model. I thought these new indicators were only in the new miners? So bottleneck would be redundant just for them, not for assemblers, furnaces, etc. Is that correct? Yep yep, totally rig...

Mods can now be loaded from directories with the name of the mod but no version number. cool, finally! but how about, you know, not requiring mods to be in a folder inside of another (zipped) folder at all? i.e. i just can't understand why abc_1.0.0.zip/abc_1.0.0/data.lua which can now become abc_1...
