Re: Version 0.17.58

I added a "Build with obstacle avoidance" control settings entry. CONTROL + Left mouse click is default value. I never thought I'd miss it, but I don't usually build explosives until I absolutely have to...and this made me have to. Wildly off topic, but I build extra cliff explosives and turn cliff...

Re: Version 0.17.58

I suggest that the rail system should be reverted to it's state from any of the 2016 releases .... not criticising the old system, but people would really appreciate the current system when it is turned back on!

Re: Should standing next to an active reactor harm player health?

No. Why not? Because thinking that people get damaged by standing near nuclear reactors is ignorant and wrong. https://youtu.be/5QcN3KDexcU?t=407 hmm, standing next to a non-functioning reactor is totally different to standing next to a working reactor, because thinking that people would not get da...

Re: [0.17] My Defences Bluesprints

Update - Replaced Requestor chests supplying turrets with buffer chests The buffer chests at the turrets are set to request 200 red ammo and 200 green ammo. When combined with the train setup I am using to supply ammo, it means that, when green ammo is available, the red ammo will be recycled back ...

Re: [0.17.56-3] Rail corner hitbox prevents train loading

Could you please offer some guidance on what constitutes "Not a bug"? I ask I would like to avoid wasting your time and mine in the future. I can see there are cases where what is reported is how the game is intended to work, but that does not seem to be the case here. In this case, I assume it is, ...

[0.17.56-3] Rail corner hitbox prevents train loading

Related to issue (https://forums.factorio.com/72972) The curved rail hitbox prevents train loading at the position indicated in the images. The hitbox moves the inserter too far away from the train engine. First image - this is the closest the middle inserter of the five, can get to the train - as c...

Re: [0.17.55] Filter stack inserter on circuit network does nothing

I had the same problem, I wanted an inserter connected to a circuit network and the logistic network. solved it by connecting it to a robotport and reading the logistics network from that - circuit network only.

There is no such rule. The wires use absolute distance and the electric coverage is a square for game-play convenience and simplicity. There is little reason for the 2 to be correlated.

So, not a bug.
thanks for the reply ... I find it a bit odd but ok.

[0.17.55-0] Substation wire connection limit

Minor issue - for the small and medium power poles, a wire can be dragged from the pole to any game square powered by that pole. for the Substation that condition is broken as the three far-most game squares in each corner of the powered area cannot be connected by a wire.
