Re: Friday Facts #366 - The only way to go fast, is to go well!

For this, I implemented a simple test dependency system. The tests are executed and listed in a way, that when you get to debug and check a test, you know that all of its dependencies are already working correctly. I tried to search if others use the dependencies as well, and how they do it, and I ...

However, we encountered several 3rd party applications in the wild that leaked handles to the snapshot process, making it unkillable. That completely killed the project for us.
I'm a bit confused about this reasoning. Why does leaking handles make a process unkillable? (Just wanna learn)

Re: Efficiency Module Scaling

I might not be popular w/ my opinion, but I honestly think, green modules are already way too OP on lvl1. On a death-world marathon scenario starting in desert, as soon as you fill every miner/assembler with lvl1 green modules the challenge suddenly just disappears. Both pollution created by miners/...

Re: [MOD 0.13.17+] Rampant

If you point me to a file in the `rampant` repository and give a few tips how one would test/debug such a problem I could give a try fixing this issue. this should be fixed in 1.1.8 Ty for the update. I've tried out the new version, currently some pathing issue seems to be present. I've added a scr...

Re: When should Bob's enemies starting to appear?

There is no change for the spawning sooner option, maybe I should write in a change for it. +1, I mean it's called "Bigger enemies sooner" so it's working correctly now, however I think it's logical if "everything" would happen sooner, in that case maybe the string should be mod...

When should Bob's enemies starting to appear?

So I'm playing a vanilla deathworld w/ Bob's enemies, I'm at 0.38 evo factor, however everything is the same as vanilla. BTW I'v also enabled the large enemy should spawn sooner option.

When (on what evolution or time) are biters/spitters supposed to be spawning w/ different properties than vanilla?

There are also vanilla ways to pump-up difficulty.
Ye, you're right, I've tried multiple settings, not just DW and DWM, but 've tweaked other settings as well. I posted it because it's something new and exciting for me and I've thought people visiting this thread might also enjoy it.

Re: I can't beat it...

So I've figured I'll give a try for some mods to pump-up the game difficulty. I'm running a simple death-world w/ rampant (w/ basic settings of the mod) and NoHandCrafting . It makes the scenario very challenging, until now, I couldn't beat it w/ full-forest start. Of course, I'm playing w/ only one...

Any information about schedule / road-map?

I see in a lot of bug reports, that it's already fixed for the `1.1` release. Which is super good, don't get me wrong. There is the sub forum called `Releases` which has the description `Information about releases and road-map.`, however I find there only info about the past. I don't see any road-ma...

Re: I can't beat it...

Yes, efficiency modules change this setting more or less immediately, because the impact is not only pollution reduction of the machine, but also power, which is additional pollution reduction. An electric miner has 10/min + 90kW power consumption. This means 11.5/min with boiler power. With 3 mk1 ...

Re: I can't beat it...

I tried playing the same map using different combinations of strategies. The one we are playing on w/ @jodokus31 or the one you've posted before? I agree that being aggressive on biter nests does not pay off. Attacking bases really bumps up the evolution a LOT!!! However, it is likely possible and ...

Looks nice. Only 17% Evolution and researching damage 2! Good idea to mine coal from down there. Only 10 labs? Did you research heavy armor? shooting speed? military2? fast inserter? steel axe? I've skipped all of those above, they are not necessary until reaching green-modules coverage Assembler2'...
