Re: Friday Facts #407 - Automating a soundtrack

Will this audio backend update resolve the constructive interference/digital distortion and clipping that can be heard when a large group of bitters die on the same frame, eg from a grenade?

Re: Friday Facts #405 - Whole belt reader, New logistics GUI

I love the new logistics interface. It almost looks like it could be an extension of the map itself. Maybe there should be a map overlay button for it? Or an (toggleable) button in the bottom bar to open it?

Re: Friday Facts #401 - New terrain, new planet

Stunning work Earendel, well done for displaying the "fearless competence". Uncle Bob would be proud! The new terran generation system looks amazing. The passageways makes me want to explore. I never thought I would tolerate cliffs but this makes me want to try them again. Just fantastic j...

[1.1.104] Spider with auto-targeting does not shoot

I develop a custom scenario with roaming enemy spidertrons. I've encountered a situation where an enemy spidertron fails to shoot hostile targets that are within its weapons range. In the attached save game, the spidertron can be found dancing near GPS 900, 330 If you watch for a while, you should o...

Re: Friday Facts #396 - Sound improvements in 2.0

I noticed an issue when a large number of sound-triggering events happen all on the same frame, the classic example is throwing a grenade at 50 small bitters causing them all to die at once. The "dying" sound effect then plays multiple (although perhaps not 50) times simultaneously, leadin...

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

This is very exciting news, and a great resolution to the bots vs belts problem. However the fully stacked items on high speed belts looks pretty weird to me. I am colorblind so maybe that affects things...but... the whole thing looks like it's sat still, and I'm hallucinating dark patches moving th...

Re: Friday Facts #387 - Swimming in lava

Looks very cool! However I noticed that the Foundry's rate of production does not match the speed of the animation. We see a big bucket pouring out molten metal into a cast, then the cast being released... and that happens at a certain rate. But if we look at the gears being produced by the machine,...

Re: Friday Facts #378 - Trains on another level

This is awesome!
Can bitter attack the elevated train?
What happen if an elevated rail is destroyed and a train is driven off the end, does it just stop like with regular ground rail?

[boskid][1.1.80] Ghosts prevent enemy expansion

The players of my "soft mod" scenario found a new exploit. They are spamming roboport ghosts everywhere, and this seems to prevent the enemy from expanding to those chunks. https://i.ibb.co/qBXJYbc/spammy-roboports.png The expansion candidate score for those areas is good. https://i.ibb.co...

Re: Friday Facts #370 - The journey to Nintendo Switch

Scripts still work, so scenarios and "soft-modded" games will work, this includes soft modded servers. But I have some bad news about servers; because of some requirements from Nintendo, you won't find dedicated servers in the server list, only games hosted from the game client(direct IP ...

Re: Friday Facts #370 - The journey to Nintendo Switch

Twinsen, I know mods are not supported on the switch version - but will scenarios be supported on the Switch version? I spend the past ~4 months developing a scenario :> It would be nice if that works on the switch. Regarding the expansion, take all the time you need friends. We support your decisio...

Re: We support Ukraine

Ukraine bombed Donbass for 8 years and after that do you consider Russia an enemy? Russia stood up for Donbass, because Russia is tired of looking at it, looking at how people are suffering. And one interesting fact: Ukraine itself destroys cities with its tanks, while Russian tanks try not to brea...
