Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

I hope they will eat less UPS after the update, because massive biter attacks usually cause UPS drops on low-end CPU

Re: [0.17.31] Underground belt placement causes existing belts to disappear

To me, it's not a bug, but very handy feature. Especially when you make part of a bus go underground to split non-side belt.

Re: Friday Facts #290 - Rail building changes & High-res icons

Wouldn't multiple versions of every icon be a huge load on vram? No, in mipmap every downscaled texture is 4 times smaller than previous one on each step, so first is 1, 2nd is 1/4, 3rd is 1/16 etc. It's geometric progression, which sum tends to 4/3. So, storing multiple downscaled versions of each...

Re: Version 0.17.28

Finally a "somewhat stable" version. From version 0.17.22 to 0.17.26 there was at least one regression issue per version that made it much worse than 0.17.21 (e.g. crashes when placing poles, mods compatibility issues, ugly localized fonts, broken pollution) but now i hadn't find any game breaking o...

Re: [0.17.26] Pollution producing things show up as consumers in production statistics window

I created new game in 0.17.26, built 4 burner miners and feeded each other (in circle), then changed speed to 100 (and all i did was collecting coal from them to prevent jamming) - and pollution never escaped this chunk where my mine were located. Rolled-back game to 0.17.25, created map with the sa...

[0.17.25] NPE - Clicking empty cell on quickbar shows large list of items

As there are no item categories in NPE, clicking quickbar empty cell just spits everything in the game to player face. Probably, it should be limited to items that are researched by player at this moment plus mineable minerals that present on the map. Or at least be limited to items available in sce...

Re: [0.17.25] Coal deposits blinks on a minimap when char moves

Even more, sometimes static 1px checkerboard image flickers when i just rotate my head quickly left and right or shake my screen. So it's not only matrix problem, but also an optical illusion. Unfortunally, i have no printer to check whenever this works on paper too or on screen only. Also, i made a...

Re: [0.17.25] Coal deposits blinks on a minimap when char moves

Also, if minimap is zoomed (or scale setting is set not to 100%) - pattern becomes something strange, not checkerboard anymore. I think, resource patches rendering on minimap should respect zoom factor and render pixels according to final viewport coordinates (display screen coordinates), not accord...

Re: Crazy bug [bad mod zip - no notice??!]

Ideally, sha1 of downloaded mods should be checked. There is sha1 field for every mod version returned by mod portal api, so if something bad happens during download (network problem or firewall software bug) causing wrong hash - this file should be discarded and download process should be re-attemp...

Time to add some integration tests with mods? I don't mean Wube is responsible for broken mods, but at least lets say there should be something to ensure a bugfix/balance change does not make every mod user cry.
This is experimental branch, we all are integration testers :lol:

Re: [0.12.29] Starting in the middle of an ocean

Actually, this problem is very easy to solve: 1. After map generation, find a nearest ore/stone/coal patch (doesn't actually matter, unless it can be spawned on small island too) 2. Check it's reachability with A* search 3. If reachable, everything is done, spawn player at this location. 4. If not r...
