Re: Version 1.1.0

Moved the character/vehicle gun window to the left of the quickbar. I play on two screens - and use the left screen for the game - now my import player data like weapons are at the far side of the screen, not handily in the middle of my field of view. I can't see an option to move it back - can you ...

Re: Alt-F4 #14 - Exploring the Infinite

try adding factorio to your search.... you have to narrow the field first.

It's not rocket science.... well technically space exploration does count I guess

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...

Make logistic requests easy to find.

It would be handy to be able to have a toggle to allow you to sort logistic requests much like your inventory is sorted. Alternatively when you hover over a logistic request the inventory items light up. Can this functionality be inverted so that when you hover over an item in your inventory, the co...

No way to cancel replace blue prints option

When updating the contents of a blueprint, changes are committed without saving. I accidentally overwrote a key blueprint with no way to recover this. Steps to replicate: 1. Create a blueprint and save it. 2. Select the tool to update contents and use it. At this stage the blueprint has changed. 3. ...

Re: Let the car and tank move like the player (omnidirectional wheels)

I've found that after 2500+ hours in the game, that driving has become natural and I don't really have too many issues. Just takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it. Guess it helps that I've been driving irl for 40 years :-) Parking the car in my carpark, or driving in my base on the other han...

Re: Add the ability to connect splitters to circuit network

The first application came about when I wanted to set the priority function of a splitter to on when the number of an item down stream dropped below a certain number. I was happy with two branches of my factory each getting 50% of the inbound resources, however the loads on each branch were not equa...

Add the ability to connect splitters to circuit network

TL;DR Allow splitters to become programatically "smart" in their operation. What ? Connecting splitters to the circuit network would allow for conditional branching of resource flows. I.e. the ability to have a splitter send items to one side as a priority based upon down stream requirements. Why ?...

Add a Active Mod Toggle to Manage Mods Panel

When you have a lot of mods installed, it becomes annoying to scroll down the list to see what you have currently enabled. There is a need for a toggle setting for All Mods/Enabled Mods for this list.

Re: Question: what settings are used to start game to make mega base?

But the resource areas really only take about 40 mining machines and seem like they won't last all that long .... On a "default" start, your initial ore patches will provide enough raw materials to get the starter base/mall and science research up to blue science. By that stage you should have a we...

Re: [0.18.10] Watch your step achievement popup missing

This has been missing since before 0.18 - I noticed it when going for an all achievement run in 0.17

Suspect that it gets trumped by the "You're dead" event.

Re: Increase Big Electric Pole Wire Reach to 32 to = Chunk Size

I think the major issue with chunks being 32 and power pole grid being 30 is that 32*4 = 128 which is not evenly divisible by 5, or 6.... My solution is to build a blueprint with 5 spans in a chunk over 4 chunks. However, this does not evenly span 3 chunks, or 5 chunks or 2 chunks which means some j...

Re: [posila] Daylight suddenly darkens

I suspect it was user error. I had experimented with maintaining two seperate steam installs with 0.17 and 0.18. I think that might have been the root cause but maybe didn't show up until the new release went live. When I noticed the two versioned folders I uninstalled factorio deleted all save fold...
