Re: [Low priority][Graphical] Shadows darken "glowing" objects (eg rail signals)

Thanks for the report however that's just how it works when it's all just sprites: a lot of shadows are just gray transparent textures and when you render one over top of another it darkens it giving the shadow effect. There's no real light engine at play in the game - just sprites on sprites. I kn...

[Low priority][Graphical] Shadows darken "glowing" objects (eg rail signals)

Notice how the selected rail chain signal looks darkened by the shadow falling across it, despite it ostensibly being a lighted object.

However, the API you linked mentions a "created_at" field, which sounds much more like what I need.
Nice :)

Why do you need it though? I'm curious :)
For a project whose nature I cannot yet disclose.

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

What is charcoal? I don't have any recipes that use it, and furnaces keep making charcoal when they were supposed to insert the wood into the fuel slot. If I try to put wood into furnaces and I put in more than the fuel slot holds, instead of filling completely and returning the rest to my inventor...

Re: How to get the creation/first release date of a mod from the portal

Be aware that before the mod portal existed the mods where published in this forum. Download the oldest version and check dates of files in the zip. The zip itself can change date on download. The mod portal api gives timestamps. You can go through all dates to find the earliest one, but if a downl...

How to get the creation/first release date of a mod from the portal

I find myself needing to find when a mod was first ever released, which is synonymous with knowing when it was first uploaded to the mod portal. Important to note is that there is no date information in the changelog, the oldest download is NOT the first release, (it is instead the last release for ...

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

I can, however, say that you should not be seeing damaging levels of pollution from a single burner drill - that is far in excess of normal. They might not have caused damage immediately. All I know is that they showed up as soon as I started mining, and they caused damage as soon as I was inside o...

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

The trees are supposed to be far more significant than the terrain type is, especially among the "natural" terrains as opposed to concrete (which is supposed to carry heavy penalties).

Can you post an explanation of how the Tree Planter works? I built one in my game but it just gradually ate saplings and didn't seem to do anything.
It plants them into forests.

Re: Noise expression system hooks

A more complex and frankly less sensible idea would be to hardcode more functions, but the sheer number that are necessary - in my case, I needed bitwise operations, array index use, math.floor(), and modulo, and others likely need other functions - makes that not a realistic means to achieve prope...

Re: NauvisDay - Gaia's Revenge, and your attempt to adapt to it

The biters seem to ramp up far too aggressively in the early game. Not even twenty minutes in, I'd mined up a few hundred plates and had only just started a coal mining section when I got my first wave, and then my second wave, and then my third...the waves came in as rapidly as if I were inside a ...

Duration isn't possible. The times a given alert last are compiled and stored in the exe: Capture.PNG
Is there a reason this has to be as such? Why is it hardcoded (ie not even a utility constant, let alone a prototype or script thing)?

Re: [Possibly from mods] 1.0 Alien nest decoratives glitched, possibly due to nest being expansion rather than mapgen

If that's the case then I believe it's up to the mod adding the new decoratives the define the render layers for them so they don't collide with the new biter nesting ones. There are 2 properties in the decorative that control the layering: https://wiki.factorio.com/Prototype/Decorative I will pass...

Re: [Possibly from mods] 1.0 Alien nest decoratives glitched, possibly due to nest being expansion rather than mapgen

That almost looks like a layering issue with the the mods decoratives/decals it's putting on the terrain. If you remove the mods does it sill look wrong? Removing the mods should cause all of that terrain and the decoratives/decals it adds to be erased and replaced with vanilla terrain. I no longer...

If you do not want to use it, you can just not research it.
