Re: Friday Facts #320 - Color correction

I like the new colors. I would also like to see more improvement to the map view, with different types of entities in different colors.
The capability is there: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Enhanced_Map_Colors

Re: [0.17.1] The three undestructable non-recipe-changeable differently-feeded buildings in new tutorial might be confus

It must demonstrate the open design gameplay of Freeplay. Nothing that I add should affect the Freeplay experience. The demo/tutorial should have exactly the same mechanics as vanilla Factorio. Instead of the loader, just say, "You connected the belts, now put an inserter here." Have an electric st...

Can we finally install, update, remove and toggle mods without restarting 4 times?

Re: Friday Facts #267 - Experiments, Explosives & Extended tags

It sounds like you guys need to get some playtesters in and have them each play with the different gui options to figure out which should be default.
Though i'm not sure if i woudln't want more expensive robots/roboports for that for balancing.
There is already bot capacity research.

Re: Reading Power capacity and demand

The third bar is possible if for some reason (Solar in the morning/evening or insufficient coal/water) the electrical generators are not producing their full amount, but the accumulators are able to make up the difference. Basically any combination is is possible. The game doesn't need to care what ...

Re: Reading Power capacity and demand

I think Piroko's mockup is brilliant. I suggest adding another bar for the accumulator charge state and capacity.

Re: Friday Facts #241 - New player experience

The bare minimum you need to demonstrate the mechanics of the game are: Miner -> Belt -> Inserter -> Assembler -> Inserter -> Chest. Point is, this demonstrates resource extraction, automation, and transportation. This is a core mechanic that scales. None of these by themselves paint a clear pictur...

[16.30] 'pulsing' server not responding.

I'm posting this as it's own bug because I've seen it a number of times and I can't tell if it is a cause or effect of other bugs. Sometimes this happens while I'm already in a multiplayer game, and sometimes while trying to connect. The game appears to run at about one tick per second (from watchin...

[Rseding91] [0.16.30] Crash on reconnect to server: "received non sequention tick closure."

This crash happened after the server stopped responding. The 'server not responding' bar was filling up slowly; it was unfilling slightly about once per second, then filling back up. The game seemed to be advancing by only one tick every second. (I've also seen this 'pulsing' behavior of the server ...

Yes, but that only happened after we had problems rejoining.

The main problem is the error message doesn't make any sense.

[16.23] Series of desyncs with server not responding

The first desync was right after we got attacked. Then the "server not responding" box started blinking as I tried to reconnect, and continued for the rest of the time while I reconnected and desynced 3 more times. The last time I connected, it didn't desync right away, but it was still blinking "se...

Re: Friday Facts #201 - 0.15 Stable, but not really

Thanks for the hard work improving the game loading process. I've noticed that trying to alt-tab while loading the game behaves very badly. Either alt-tab doesn't do anything or it is very slow and unresponsive. Also the sound sometimes gets choppy while the game is loading in the background. Also I...

Re: [.15.3] Root Gui Elements Errors/inconsistencies

Posila, perhaps the first bug was fixed but not the second? I just confirmed (in .15.18) that elements in gui.left are still arranged horizontally across the screen. I think this was supposed to be fixed before .15, as Kovarex said in this thread: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?p=206376#p...

Re: Vertical gui.left, again?

I can confirm that this is still an issue in .15.18.
Also, this should be moved to the bug report forum.

Are the inserters moving in odd paths because they're trying to look like they're moving in 3D perspective?

Re: [MOD][WIP .15] High Voltage 0.0.7 : Energy over distance

Performance is much improved with the latest update! However, I suggest increasing the maximum energy per circuit, because roboports and lasers use so much power. One roboport draws 5MW, so that is enough to max out any circuit it's attached to. If it gets just a few robots charging there, then ever...

Here is the save. Note that this wasn't actually connected to the power station, although it acted like it was on one side.

Re: [MOD][WIP .15] High Voltage 0.0.3 : Energy over distance

We're having lots of fun with this! I always have to think about the power grid before I place something, unlike in vanilla. Also I don't think solar panels will be used in the normal way. The factory looks very different with the power grid overlay. https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/829071...
