Re: Friday Facts #330 - Main menu and File Share Shenanigans

Good on you for setting up a proper file server. I avoid these blinky boxes like the plague. VPN servers, IDS-es, file servers, all this garbage. If I didn't install the OS, it's not going on my network. Btw hardware RAID can also eat your data, be careful with these things. They use unknown formats...

Re: Friday Facts #274 - New fluid system 2

Then please give some other reasonable way to transfer 3000 fluids/s by single pipe. Do the same that you do when belts need more throughput: Build more pipes, use higher pipe tiers (modded only), or use trains for mass transport. I think it's reasonable to expect pipes to be faster than a blue bel...

Re: Friday Facts #317 - New pathfinding algorithm

I'm hoping this pathfinding upgrade is a precursor to more sophisticated biter attacks. Would be nice if biters offered more of a challenge by avoiding hazards altogether and going through a hole in your defenses. I think that's a separate, higher level issue. The pathfinding just tells the biter h...

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

What if the underground part of a underground pipes really existed, just didn't connect sideways? It would not be possible for undergrounds to cross each other, one would have to go over the surface. On the other hand, no weird reconnect behavior.

Re: Friday Facts #310 - Glowing Heat pipes

I really like the glowing pipes. The color could also change: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wien%27s_displacement_law

Re: Kovarex Energy Price

Nuclear energy is overpowered IRL too. If we ever ran out of mines, it would be worth extracting from extremely dilute sources such as average continental crust or even seawater. And IRL, water has a heat capacity of around 4000 J/kg*K, so pumps and pipes and stuff are much better. (You could say 1 ...

Re: Friday Facts #274 - New fluid system 2

Where can we find the values for c² and friction? I tried measuring with circuits but something's not right.
