Re: Building queue rearrange

Just to warn you, hand crafting speed modules and low-density structures will take a very, VERY long time. I suggest automating everything to speed up the process substantially.

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

I personally do not believe anything from social media now as AI can pretty much say or do anything (Like Reddit votes, or X-platforms tweets). I know how scary AI is as I had a linux box with an AI processor in I and was able to generate very convincing, yet fabricated results. So yea, the WUBE dev...

Increase the absolute max stack size within the integers.

As it states, would it be possible to go up to, let's say a quintillion, or decellion? Assuming the memory footprint will permit such a thing.

Re: Game Save File and -Speed Related Suggestions

I use windows server 2022 21H2 and my game server(s) are stored on a 15,000 RPM SAS hard drive. So saving is lightning quick. The server hardware is very slow (DDR3-1600 with i7-4790k @4.60ghz) compared to my Ryzen 9 7950x with DDR5-5200 setup. The bottleneck for me is the i7 and the DDR3. Where I n...

Re: Tiled Blueprints Sizing - simple & nice

I personally did not think it was even possible to achieve such a thing as blueprints are stored statically within the game data. Perhaps one day a dynamic storage space in this game will be possible.

[1.1.100] Crash opening inventory with large stacks (FloatCast)

As the title states: Before I played this game with multiple 2 billion stacks without issue, now with something in the lines of a ~300 million stack, upon using the 'E" key will cause an unknown error to occur due to crashing. I can access the inventory if I use a machine without issue. What is...

Re: NO RECIPE

I suggest assigning the machine a recipe . I made that same mistake when I first played this game. I am also throwing this out there, but there could be a slim chance that your memory is experiencing a form of bit-flipping. Just a theory as the DRAM is the lifeblood to this game.

Re: Just bought the game; What were Your first impressions?

I bought this game out of curiousity, and do not regret it. This game is the only game I know that depends on DRAM and CPU cache latencies over the central processing unit. I also learned later on that this could use a trillion cpu cores and the benefits would only be marginal. I just wish GPU manuf...

Re: Best CPU available: AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D?

Re: logical elements please

Try Satisfactory if you think the automation is complex in this game. In Satisfactory, the mid-to-end game is ultra-complex and requires a lot of know-how when you get the final space elevator parts fabricated and launched.

Re: Possibly suppoert for SMT technology and NUMA

I just upgraded my gaming machine to a Ryzen 9 7950x with 64GB DDR5-5200. so the NUMA/SMT request is no longer relevant. My workstation was a dinosaur and I figured it was time to retire that energy-consuming pig for a more efficient, new, and much faster system.
