Changing tree density in .16

I know .16 adds a whole set of new options to change the terrain generation, including trees, but I haven't really taken the time to experiment with exactly how they affect the terrain (I prefer to play stable release). Is it possible to reduce the density of trees in forests without actually making...

Re: Electric Locomotives

I think the next step in the evolution of electric locomotives would be big accumulator packs. Maybe design a locomotive without "ordinary" fuel and use a large accumulator instead. So without the need to modify all the train tracks the Devs might think about it. (there are also opportunities to de...

Re: trains, bridges and improvements to the rail system

One thing people always forget about is that trains (irl) are REALLY REALLY bad at handling gradients. Okay so the trains don't really obey real world physics especially turning corners, but to have any kind of elevated or underground track the gradient up/down to that part would have to be stupidly...

Re: So... Let's talk about bots, and how to fix them properly...

The problem as explained to me, is that when feeding into a chest, belts max out at being able to feed into three sides, and one out, while bots have no limits at all in their ability to access the chests. So you can have an infinite number of bots interacting with the chests. There is 1 simple cha...

Re: Flamethrower ammo for turrets

Nah I think it's good that the different types of turrets all need different logistical considerations. I do wish there was more use for flamethrower ammo though, because although I do use the flamethrower a lot for burning down forests and biter nests (it's SO GOOD against biter nests in the early ...

Re: Effective exploration with RSO mod

regarding the absence of coal in your world: You can change the relative frequency of different resources in the vanilla_resources config file. also, I was looking at mods that can help with exploration on RSO and made my own version of RSO radar/radarplus: https://mods.factorio.com/mods/MalcolmCook...

Re: Can you prevent bugs from spawning?

There is a certain max distance away from an existing base where they cannot spawn a new one. existing nests or player structures in a chunk will significantly reduce the chance of a biter nest spawning there, but not eliminate it entirely. but any biters trying to spawn a nest inside your base will...

or just "locomotive". Since there is only one type (at the moment) it doesn't seem necessary to add a qualifier.

Re: Disabling trees from map gen

as far as I know trees are handled by the world generation, not resource generation, so they are not touched by RSO. certainly nothing in any of the config files will affect trees.

Re: Pavement deterioration

you know I quite like this idea. I would propose that everything would gradually wear out over time, but only if it remains unused. The way I am thinking about it is, while things are connected to the power but turned off, most machines drain a small amount of power, and you have an audible hum emit...

Re: Tree Crusher Machine. Thoughts?

+1
especially since fire spread (which is a great mechanic) makes it more problematic to use the flamethrower to clear trees. currently I use the bulldozer mod for tree clearing but I think something similar should be in vanilla

I hope they do a rework of train pathfinding
The fix could be as simple as having trains recalculate their path when they stop at a chain signal :/
