Re: Auto-sort chests when player opens inventory

I raised a similar "bug" about the spidertron inventory not sorting and was advised that vehicles' inventories are excluded from sort due to performance issues. Can understand performance hits where there are likely many thousands of chests throughout a decent-sized base, but when cars/tan...

Re: Prototype compact all science.

Very nice! My next run I was looking to build an "every science pack" module that only takes in raw materials, so this is additional inspiration.

Re: [1.1.57] Using upgrade planner on a "copy" removes ability to select station names

Internally this is the same behavior as https://forums.factorio.com/87343 So you're saying that after using the upgrade planner, the BP is effectively saved along with the status of the "Station names" checkbox? So when the upgraded BP is available, because the station names weren't origi...

[1.1.57] Using upgrade planner on a "copy" removes ability to select station names

I was copying/pasting some stations and found that if you use the upgrade planner without selecting "Train stop names", then the tick box disappears. If you select "Train stop names" before applying the upgrade planner, then the tick box is still available, but unticked. I only t...

Re: How to see beneath construction/logistic bot module icon?

Excuse me being a little tongue in cheek, but I reckon you have 2 options: 1. Build the required modules so the icons disappear. 2. RIght-click the icon to remove it, and then add the modules later when they become available. Seriously, though, I'm not aware of any way to move the "missing modu...

Inserters pick up LOTS faster on a curved belt

I wasn't sure where to post this one... It's merely an observation that I've finally made after too many hours playing (plus the countless hours watching others play!) Forgive me if it's one of those things that EVERYONE knows :roll: I was setting up a train station and due to it being a little cram...

Re: Do donation to causes belong here?

As a regular reader, and sometimes contributor, to this forum, I think it is a very polite and subtle way to provide the information without preaching. Over here in Australia, I would have no idea how to provide any financial assistance to people in Europe.

Re: Smart belt dragging should place ghost undergrounds if no undergrounds in inventory

When using smart belt dragging, undergrounds are automatically placed when an obstacle is detected. However, if there are no undergrounds in inventory, a straight belt is placed. When there are objects on the belt, this will cause side-loading. Ghost underground belts should be placed instead. With...
