Re: [posila] [0.18.0] surface.min_brightness issue

Being able to make the night 'fully black' is really useful as part of scenarios like 'eternal night'. It also means lights are a lot more valuable. It's also a great way to hide map-borders for things like 'underground' maps.

[0.18.0] graphical error with shadows of oil refinery

In at least 17.79 and 18.0 the oil refinery's shadow is wrongly aligned. All shadows are pointing due east, but the oil refinery's shadow is pointing east-southeast. This is the case in at least 17.79 and 18.0 in all 4 rotations.

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

As I've been saying for over a year, 'first oil' has a very simple solution that is 'deadlock free' and it's available here: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Zr_simpleoil The reason for this suggestion is that 'blockage from full output' is not a concept that's tough well, if at all, to new players.

[kovarex] [0.17.52] Crash on saving with specific rail signal placement: "RailSignalBase::checkConsistency"

Making this setup and then placing rail signals in the white spots will allow signals to be placed. When the game saves, this causes the game to crash. Both auto-save and manual saving will crash the game. Tested on different systems to be sure. Screenshot of setup and log attatched. Normal setup, a...

Re: [17.x] Disconnected centrifuge is able to start a recipe

Here's a save-file that's set up in editor in a fresh world. If the game is advanced 1 tick in /editor, it will do exactly what Dev-iL describes.

Re: [0.17.35] Can't place cliffs next to each other

Here's the save-file. I re-tested it since I noticed I had mods enabled. Without mods, it does indeed work like expected. With mods, it doesn't.

[0.17.35] Can't place cliffs next to each other

When entering editor mode I can no longer place two pieces of cliff next to each other without forcing it with [shift] + [click]. This worked in 17.34. There's no water or objects in the way; I can place the cliff normally if no other cliff is touching it. It's also a problem with all rotations. htt...

After I told about the 64px icons, our humble overhaul projects artist just died a little bit inside.
About 1000 times to be exact.
That's why you always make resources at 2x or 4x target resolution to be prepared for future change in use. :3

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

For the icons, using resizing should be the default setting, with the option for using a different image and higher or lower zoom levels. One thing that you might want to keep in mind is to make sure the most important features lines up well with the pixel grid when scaled down significantly. Easies...

[0.17.5] sidebar GUI very narrow in NPE

The sidebar becomes very narrow whenever I hover over anything, and it stays like that until I restart the game, reload the save or change the UI scale. Then it will work for a frame before it becomes narrow again. As soon as I exit the settings menu after applying a different UI scale (automatic or...

[0.16.51] Build-order effecting what gets power

When a power generating entity is shared between two electric networks, the one that was connected first gets full priority. In the image posted, if the left-most pole gets placed first, the radars will get power, and not the inserter. If the right-most pole is placed first, the inserter will get po...

Re: Friday Facts #258 - New autoplace

I have but one wish; guarantee one oil-spot within X tiles from spawn. I love me a world where there's much more ocean than land, but that also means it might be several thousand tiles from spawn to the nearest oil.

Re: [0.16.27] inconsistent inserter to splitter behaviour

Yes. The fact that it doesn't 'split' is a mild annoyance. The fact that it does not follow the 'standard' for which lane to put items on is the real issue here.

Re: [0.16.27] inconsistent inserter to splitter behaviour

The problem here is not that inserting onto splitters is different than belts, but that it's not consistent with rotation. As far as I know, blueprint mirroring is not getting implemented in vanilla because not everything works with mirroring, like rails or oil. However, this problem breaks rotation...

[0.16.27] inconsistent inserter to splitter behaviour

When inserting directly onto a splitter, the lane selected is not consistent with rotation. When inserting onto a belt facing away from the inserter, the behaviour is consistent.

Re: enforce player chat color to be readable

One thing that would be interesting is being able to set a player's text colour separate from their 'ingame' colour. For larger multiplayer games, I don't mind people's characters being whatever colour they so choose, but I'd really like for people to have a set colour in text. Maybe a very slight t...

The patch-notes for 0.16.0 listed this: Added support to change daytime length and brightness on a per-surface basis. The LUA API does not list any way of achieving this. However, this can be somewhat simulated by setting surface.dusk to values above 1.0 and surface.dawn to values below 0.0. This fe...
