Re: The enemies are kind of a "forced failure" condition

(Alternatively, a more risky option : respawn, kill the invaders, and then kill the nest where they came from.) that part appears to be almost impossible... depending on the number and range of the enemies, you probably will need like 500 players to manage that. the enemy spawn rate is no short of ...

Last time I tried to do this, the mod portal refused the file until I raised the version number. then, how many dots am i allowed or is it only numbers? lik...

hope the bug hunting goes well! also you are not supposed to read those Game Journalists's sites anymore, we are not in the 90s anymore and they are known to only produce hit pieces and hate clicks. YouTube constantly exposes them for what they are. so yeah, if you sneeze, you got a disease, if you ...

Re: aliens needs multithreading :/

Nah, that would be super slow. If something blocks the path after it's found, then that's simply ignored. The obstacle might move away before the biter even reaches it, or it might not, in which case the biter will bump into it. If a biter does bump into an obstacle, it will try to go around on its...

Official Channels for upgrade stats to pass through.

Re: aliens needs multithreading :/

I don't understand what you mean. You find a path, give it to the biter, and the biter follows it. Once a path is found, it's found and there are no changes happening to it. well i mean, if the path finding did it's thing, it started the biter on the path it found and, for example, a player entity ...

Re: aliens needs multithreading :/

a better fix might be for a fix limit of paths to be created from a artillery shot. so they will still look around but not spam new paths... One quick hack for that is to make all responders of a artillery shot into a single attack squad with a single path to follow. They do. Although it's more lik...

Re: aliens needs multithreading :/

all of this seem fascinating... all of the biters are trying to go through ALL of it's possible states each tick when path finding? at that stage when you shoot an artillery, they want to go to the target but do not know where it is... so they go crazy and try to path find to the target... now it is...

Re: Chests with slot filters?

that would be useful, like when you only want 1 type of item in the chest but you have a 2 side belt and no space to split the content. it would simply make the inserter behave like it is a assembler requesting ingredients but only the permitted items of the chest filter. in the case of Logistics, i...

Official Channels for upgrade stats to pass through. (like research and modules do)

i think i might have spewed a wall of Text.. the short version: the miner research increases production, but putting a production module adds to it and do not negate. i want that ability for stats to exist since mods often breaks by fighting for a stat to change. the method is to make 3 stages of wh...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

If you use flame turrets, you need 3 tiles to be safe from fire. So 2 walls thick... Also, 2 walls thick gives you time to react when a wall is destroyed (increase with distance). Exactly that, time to react... with bots, you can give them walls and repair packs but before that, if your fire power ...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

the QUICK FIX is to make it 10 stones for a land fill, and a deep water becomes a shallow with 1 fill and a land fill's tile (grass_1 in 0.16) with a second. this could be done easy. (at least compared to adding like 5 states of filled water tiles and remembering their states in the save tile raisi...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

i think the problem is no one agreed on how 1 stone = in volumetric size... so this makes it quite a hard judgement. Landfill is the most costly recipe of stone, undeniable, but "What is a stone?" depending on the resource density you play on 20 might be inexpensive or could be extreme. considering ...
