Re: Pollution values are wrong after modules inserted

The power source generates (or doesn't, in the case of solar and nuclear) its own pollution. The pollution on the tooltip is the pollution generated by building itself, regardless of how it gets its power. In our world, simply consuming electricity (running an refrigerator or an oven) does not, in ...

Thats correct.
You are increasing emissions by 5% and energy usage by 40% - thats 47% increase to pollution total.
Huh? Is it supposed to factor increased energy usage into that? What about those of us using solar or nuclear power?

Pollution values are wrong after modules inserted

As you can see in the attached images, base pollution is 4 / minute, but jumps by a factor of about 47% for each prod 1 module that is inserted, much higher than the 5% stated in the tooltip.

Re: Lategame mining options are lacking

[Koub] Maybe we could refocus on the OP's topic ? There has been quite some wandering in the off-topicness, hasn't there ? I don't know, that sums up Factorio gameplay pretty well. Plan one thing, get distracted by something else, then a resource patch runs dry.... hey, this place could be optimize...

Acknowledged problem that isn't fixed right away, so it stays on the top and is not reported repeatadly.
I suppose that means it'll be fixed next week instead of this week.

Is this related to why the pollution display is less smooth in the megamap? Used to fade away to near transparency, but now it looks like it used to when hitting spawners, either pretty red or fully transparent.
That's a feature, to make it easier to see the borders

Re: Version 0.17.12

I don't understand the new pollution mechanics... Will the pollution now have a significantly lesser impact on the biter evolution rate, so this would mean killing nests and letting time go by are the dominant factors now? Thanks! There's no new pollution mechanics, unless you're a mod publisher wh...

Re: [0.17.4] Can not click inventory or menu buttons

This seems to be happening quite often but we have no idea what it is. A full process dump might give us something to look in. If you encounter the problem again, go to task manager, right click on factorio.exe and select "Create Dump File". It will be a large 2GB file but you can compress it to ab...

Re: Version 0.17.8

Wouldn't it make a lot of sense to distribute the files as torrents? Delivering the downloads with a CDN would be better / easier. Torrents have an negative image and some hosters for dedicated servers block traffic on specific ports unless you ask them to open the firewall for your ip-adress. Sinc...

Quite possible. It's elusive enough that it's tough to gather info. Good catch.

Re: [0.17.2] Quickbar stopped responding

Encountered the issue again. None of the quickbar buttons or drone alerts were responding either. Tried taking a screenshot to display my cursor over the buttons, realised my screenshot doesn't capture the cursor. When I exited the screenshot tool (lightshot) it was working again. In common with the...

I hope the old upgrade planner is updated to 0.17, though its written by the devs, so it probably won't be. The new one requires bots, which you don't get for some time.
You might be interested in the Construction Drones mod (also made by a dev as it happens).
Ooh, looks interesting

But that's the thing. It just feels like we've gotten the tutorial mixed up with a challenge scenario.

Players with established ideas, prejudices, and habits often have significan...
