Have you tested it under the concept of one of the science packs running out completely and then making sure it can re-insert even if the current belt completely empties out of it and then fills up with everything else?
Of course, that's exactly the nature of the improvement 😊

2.0 may make this easier to accomplish, too, with the full belt reader.
What's easier than circuitless sushi? XD

Re: Beautiful Sushi Belts

However, if for some reason one science pack isn't produced any more and the labs stop research and you don't notice this in time, the belt loop will slowly fill with every science pack still available until it's completely filled. That's why I made the new design I just talked about, it now featur...

Re: positionless player.play_sound()

Hello, Playing the sound as a global when a position is not defined makes sense to me. In fact, it already behaves like that in 2.0, the change happened as a part of some refactoring I was doing. I'll think about it a little more but I think I'll make the change in 1.1.x as well, I don't see a reas...

Re: positionless player.play_sound()

Possible duplicate of https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=221&t=64281 I don't think so, I've done a post search before doing this one and it seems like this topic is more about making a sound position follow an entity, which is different from my proposal of not having a position at all.

Re: positionless player.play_sound()

Thank you for the suggestion, sadly the value "must be" in the range [0;1] and 1 is still positioned on the game surface :/

positionless player.play_sound()

I have multiple mods that require or will require being able to play sounds to a player directly, without the sound having coordinates. For example if I make some sort of user interface and use the player.play_sound() method, the sound is not audible if the player moves away from the coordinates it ...

Space age mod in particular will also affect the page text, not just the infobox. Ideas for that: Integrate it directly in the text with the icon ideas above. E.g.

I don't claim to bring all the solutions (or any actually) to all the issues that may come from the addition of the new optional vanilla "mods" that will be bundled in the expansion but I just wanted to bring my thoughts. (and anyone else is welcomed to do so here as well) As a general ide...

Re: [1.1.61] Pipe Graphic Glitch on Specific Coordinates

I came across the same issue now in 1.1.76 at the X and/or Y coordinate -208 at the default zoom level (again, I mean ctrl + F9) and zoomed in 2 steps further. Here an example on a new vanilla game at both coordinates being -208: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/371988532274790410/109531434823...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

When there is less than 1 steam in the tank, it means the boiler temperature is less than 500 degrees. To be honest I don't 100% understand everything here, like for how long you integrate your consumption measurement or something but I do get that part with detecting the temperature using the stea...
