Re: Being able to move map tags once placed

+! to the original suggestion. I have recently had a need to do so, and obviously someone else beat me to the suggestion.

Re: Anyone standardizing on very long trains?

The only minor issue now is laying down rail. I was gridding the entire map with roboports and radar before and it worked amazingly well for a lot of things, but that was a little tedious and I suspect very non fps friendly. Also, not researching logistics so there's that. What works for me is sett...

Re: Rocket silo doesn't always produce white science

You could install the "Rocket Silo Stats" mod to check what has been launched. (Although I'm not 100% sure that it will record what has been launched prior to the mod being installed.)

Re: Fast replace entire belt

Good points - I guess I play (relatively) unmodded that I couldn't see some of the more specific use cases.

Re: Fast replace entire belt

How is this different from the upgrade planner (OK, requires robots), or "quick-replace" (laying the new belt directly over the top of the existing belt)?

Re: Rocket Auto Launch not Working Properly

I even recently accidentally sent 7 copper ore to space, as I was using an unfiltered chest to store satellites. "Expensive" mistake! :D

Re: Oil refinery should only show the pipes used in the chosen recipe

'Alt' mode already does this. IMO, we should instead be encouraging new players to enable 'Alt' mode.

Re: Walls need to be cheaper

Without giving too much away, have you considered using other entities rather than walls as a barrier? There are some items - admittedly with fewer hit points than walls - that are much cheaper to construct (time and materials) but can be nearly as effective, so long as the player can't squeeze betw...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

I'm far from an expert at analysing those stats, but it looks to me like your electricity updates are larger than expected - are all those small networks independent? I believe separate electricity is bad for UPS. But the main culprit appears to be the "Render Preparation", which makes sen...

Re: parameters of robots, railway signals etc., visible on the map

I was having this "issue" as well, with my thinking being that the setting didn't persist between loading/saving, but I couldn't replicate it. I never knew that "Alt" would turn these on and off in map view! :o And I can't see anywhere in the settings that suggests Alt does this,...

Re: [1.1.33] Cannot connect or disconnect trains while riding Spidertron

Yes, the action is related to the train you're currently driving. It has nothing to do with the train you have under the cursor. If you are driving no vehicle at all it does depend on the train you have under your cursor. The game doesn't seem to be able to tell the difference whether you are curre...
