Re: Pathfinding Train

This is due to the nature of the train pathfinding in Factorio. Train paths are essentially assigned a 'cost' and the cheapest one is taken. In this case, even though there is a free station the 'cost' of the train moving there is above the upper limit for a train to move there - this is done so tha...

Re: Friday Facts #223 - Reflections on 2017

My thoughts exactly. I would not be nearly as disappointed or annoyed by this change if some pipes/fluid changes had come with it. While we're at it - a total rewrite of fluids would be fantastic to be honest. Even for us experienced players half the time it seems like guess work to get any large s...

Re: 0.16.7: Boilers working intermittently, even if steam is low

Since people have repeatedly refused to believe me, I removed all mods and the issue persists: Save file is attached. This ends the debate on whether the behavior is in vanilla boilers. Loewchen, why did you move this into "Not a bug", when I have clearly demonstrated that the issue exist...

Re: Version 0.16.7

To all people complaining the end of 3-liquid wagons is the end of Factorio, the real question is : would you have missed that feature that much if it had never existed, and the fluid wagon had from start been as it is now ? You mostly miss it because you got used to it. Nothing wrong with that - l...

Re: [0.16] Disable overwriting of combinators via blueprint

I too have found this change to be extremely detrimental to working on large-scale combinator builds. TL;DR combinators should be exempt from this feature. I propose an alternative implemented: Settings for entities should only be updated if the blueprint is force-placed (ie. shift is held down). Th...

[Twinsen][0.16.3] Placing circuit wire blueprint over train signals does not work

I believe there was some discussion about how this should work in the lead up to 0.16 and I'm not 100% sure on the outcome, however I have found an inconsistency with wiring between entities on blueprint. If you have two entities that are not connected with red/green wire (such as two inserters) the...

[Rseding91] [0.16.3] Roboport connection grid error

The roboport connections shown when you mouseover a roboport used to be square and line up nicely (if roboports were lined up horizontal/parallel). I noticed that these now seem to be off with diagonal connections. Refer to the below pic for example.

Re: [0.16.0] Trains queued at occupied station not rerouting

Can we at least get an option to disable the station when a train is stopped at it? This "bugfix" breaks a lot of strategies. Although this is not a direct option in the station GUI it is rather simple to do - I connect something to the station via circuit network (usually a lamp, but eve...

There is a 1 hour timeout for entities that are marked for deconstruction - this was done for performance issues way back around v0.12.x from memory.

Re: Friday Facts #210 - Circuit connector module implementation

Love all this new high-res stuff and it's pretty awesome to see the huge amount of work that goes into every aspect of the game. One thing I do want to draw attention to is how much 'noise' the connectors and wires make on a 'grid' of lamps. Take this for example: http://i.imgur.com/90ftuUy.png Noti...

It looks like an oversight from us. Placing an entity on top should copy the settings.

Meanwhile let me know if anyone prefers the current behavior(not changing any se...

I have been working on a very large smelting setup in a test world using the Creative Mode mod.
