Re: Bot stuff

Fixing those "issues" would add a huge amount of overhead. 1. They always look for an existing (incomplete) stack of the item in any chest. Scanning for the nearest chest (with empty slots) would require more CPU time and would also cause huge a lot of half empty / full chests. 2. Robots always fly ...

[Rseding91] [0.17.63] infinity transfer loop between chests if damaged item blocks whole slot

Hey Ho, i found a small issue: Placing a damaged item inside a buffer chest and requesting the same item till full storage, creates a inifity loop. Since damaged items wont stack with items at full health the chest will never reach a condition where it stops requesting new items. // Edit: added atta...

Re: Server: automatically pause when a new player is joining

In my oppinion it should be visible only for people who hosting servers on a dedicated server. Such as the option for the segment size per network message introduced in 0.17.59. Casual players never edit the server-configuration per hand.

Server: automatically pause when a new player is joining

TL;DR Not all players can keep up with the speed of the server. Additional options for pausing the server when needed would be very helpful for larger bases / servers. What ? Players often pause the game or reduce the game speed while other players are connecting or catching up with the server. Of ...

[0.17.60] Unable to pick up roboters when flying over resources

Im not sure if this is a bug or a feature by design. When a robot is flying over resources (iron, coal, copper, etc) you are unable to pick it up - instead the character starts digging. Its quite annoying in the following situation: remove one ore more existing robo hangers, roboters lose connection...

I had to set up Blue Science by hand because I had no construction bots, because some new player somewhere who doesn't have the game yet would have had trouble with oil.

I hated it.
You had too place something by hand? What a shame!

Re: Version 0.17.60

Hey Ho. We recently upgraded our server to the newest version so we can test the new recipes and mechanics. We currently play around with a 1k SPM base. I must say, that the introduces changes are not that heavy. Planning a new factory for the rocket fuel took us around 60 minutes and the result is ...

[0.17.56] personal robo hanger not working properly at mass update

I currently have the following situation: - im upgrading a huge amount of entites at once (around 3-4k belts) - some of those entites are not in range of the robo network - walking into the uncovered area wont start your own robots immediately. - after 20-30 seconds the first few robots (not all) st...

Re: Version 0.17.9

I know that this kind of issue has been happening with the French Free ISP, first with YouTube, then with Netflix. AFAIK, using VPN helped to solve the issue in both cases. (Though it makes no sense to me, since if the upstream link has been saturated, why wasn't the traffic automatically routed th...

0.17.9 + 0.0.1 is not 0.18.0, it's 0.17.10. Same for 0.17.99->0.17.100, and onward forever.
The max value for each version is 65535,
So technically after 0.17.65535, we really have no choice but to make it 0.18.0 (Or maybe it would overflow back to 0.17.0)
How about negative numbers?

Re: Version 0.17.8

Wouldn't it make a lot of sense to distribute the files as torrents? Delivering the downloads with a CDN would be better / easier. Torrents have an negative image and some hosters for dedicated servers block traffic on specific ports unless you ask them to open the firewall for your ip-adress. Sinc...

Probably already answered question :
Is it normal that I don't upgrade automatically ?
We're having problems with our automatic updater at the moment, so please use Steam, or download the full installation at http://www.factorio.com/download/experimental.

Re: Version 0.17.5

What will players do when their mining productivity gets so high that it can not fill up a blue belt any more? Switch to bot mining I guess. What will players do when their mining productivity gets so high that it's faster than 60/sec? That'll be a sight. Mine into trains :) Mine into cars. :-)

Re: [0.17.x] Headless server. Editing --map-gen-setting yields error, and does not apply new settings.

Works fine on debian with relative paths:

Code: Select all

./bin/x64/factorio --create ./saves/free-2019.zip --map-gen-settings ./data/map-gen-settings.example.json --map-settings ./data/map-settings.example.json --server-settings ./data/server-settings.example.json

[0.17.4] incomplete map-gen-settings.example.json

The new server files for 0.17.4 should contain the new map-gen-settings with percentage values. The only solution currently is generating a new map inside the GUI and upload the map to the server via scp or rsync.
