Re: 0.17.9 Dedicated server (windows) needs openGL3.3

It is not my machine. But I was sent the log file. (I think he was trying to update the addons.) He tried to update the OpenGL but the computer only has a intel integrated display driver. I will talk to him and see if we can try a few more things to get the server working. I will also add that the 1...

0.17.9 Dedicated server (windows) needs openGL3.3

Me and a friend do streaming. He hosts the games on a dedicated windows server which he has built and has sat in his house. (we stream on twitch.) He tried to setup the server for 0.17.9 yesterday and ran into troubles with the server demanding openGL3.3 support for his graphics card... The problem ...

Re: Coal and coal powered drills - inserter behaviour

that is a nice idea. It is just that I realised that you could extract the contents of a burner miner using an inserter. it is sort of a bug i guess... I have the miners setup to feed each other in loop back using a burner inserter to remove the excess... But now i am already into the electric miner...

Coal and coal powered drills - inserter behaviour

TL;DR Make inserters only remove above 5 of item in "consumable" slots. WHAT ? :: Suggestion :: Make inserters remove coal from a "burner" miner only if the stack is above the "minimum" stocking value for the miner. 5 coal is the normal minimum. -- I placed two inserters, one removing and one inser...

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.17 & 0.18

Give the Mod Authors first access before normal users. I don’t play with mods why should I have to wait? I don't usually play with mods.

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.17 & 0.18

I realise people are looking forward to 0.17, but I don't get the pressure being put on them to release ASAP or even the demand they should do it and do it soon. Its their game its their product and its up to them to say when its ready. Exactly what I think about the release as well. They will rele...

Re: Command line belt balancer analyzer

I make one change to this Belt balancer... Just before the 2 output splitters I move it all one extra over and do a mirror of the input side. one in the middle and then the final 2 splitters. I find it balances all belts better than the ones shown here, it also mixes the sides of the belt so input a...

The string for Zistau states that you need Alien biomes and 15.09 version of factorio for the string to work.

Factorio Lets play series

I have been making videos for Factorio for quite a while now. (3 seasons of around 100 + videos per season). I am no where near a milestone in subscribers (currently only 27) but I do videos that cover each second day with a factorio release. I make Software inc videos for the other release day. I r...

Re: Friday Facts #189 - Specifying the 1.0

The green tint was perfecly fine; it was easy to see everything and it was a colour based way to tell the day/night cycle. I (and many others, hence the change) disagree with you on that one. I personally just didn't bother with night vision before, as it was so green. Maybe a setting in options, r...

Re: Friday Facts #189 - Specifying the 1.0

My one big wish for Factorio 1.0 is more ability to automate trains. In an ideal world, I'd like to have networks detect that there's a shortage in transportation resources (too many resources being stockpiled and not enough consumed at other locations would do), and then build additional trains to...

Alot of text removed. :P In your system the bots would still clog. You can't guarantee they won't in all cases. Your condition is 60% used, so you could have the other 40% sitting in that exact roboport you are trying to insert more into. I also don't play the way you play. I don't want to increase...

Re: Friday Facts #189 - Specifying the 1.0

It would be great to have a slot in roboports or another chest to be able to just release robots into the wild, and a way to call 1 logistics and 1 construction (or a configurable amount) to always land at a roboport and that these robots would still be counted as being active robots in the network...

I admit now.. I have not read the entire thread. I like the idea of the extended belt distances as you research higher levels of underground belts.

Working in a job where i have to code myself, i can totally understand how bug-hunting can be a necessary but time-consuming affair. Many times I will think something will take x time and hunting that elusive bug, OS quirk, rare condition, etc makes it take x*10. It's seems to follow the Pareto-80/...
