Bring back toggle ghost rail mode.

TL;DR Bring back toggle ghost rail mode. What ? I like to enter rail ghost mode, move my cursor around until I have likely looking path, then just look at it for a few seconds while making up my mind. Having to hold shift feels much worse. New 0.17 rail behavior for normal-clicking the green rail l...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

My two cents. Leave bots as is. Add better belts that come at the same late research level as requester chests: * Stacked belt with identical stack size as  stack inserters. * Belt speed might be slower than blue for balance. * Splitters will combine less than max size stacks. Some bonus consequence...

Re: Friday Facts #222 - Christmas avalanche

There are bug reports about inconsistent behavior when side loading a full yellow belt onto the side of an empty red belt. This should definitely result in full compression I think. For side loading to combine belts, I'm fine either way. I'd prefer if inserters did not compress perfectly. The quicke...

Re: Make save game overwrites less dangerous

Suggestion for exact specification (just restating the thread). Saves that you might not want to overwrite: Autosaves. Saves with a different map exchange string. Saves with a longer playtime. (ideally: saves with different 'map created time' or some other unique value) When you open the save dialog...

Re: Single rail train network

As for the rest of the thread... yes, I'm well aware it's not optimal; it's a personal challenge. That's cool. And it's not like you need all that much throughput to launch your first rocket for example. Design wise I think you'll want to make the bypass lanes one-way. With a chain signal at the ex...

Re: Personal robots prioritizing nearest first

If we can adjust the range of a personal roboport manually however, it would work great I suspect. Yes, that seems like the best solution at this point. Perhaps reuse the concrete area size controls. Also, as was mentioned on the first page, it could let you drop the area to 0 to turn the roboport ...

Remote map offering both blocky and detailed view.

tl;dr Map remote view zoom in distance should be different from zoom out.     What ? Two new option settings for the transition between the blocky map to detailed close in. Map view zoom in distance . Default 0.15.11 value. Map view zoom out distance. Default (and max?) 0.15.10 value. To make this ...

Re: Make save game overwrites less dangerous

If you load an auto save, it'll suggest the auto save name next time. Perhaps something to change at the same time, I don't think overwriting auto saves is a good idea.

Re: Friday Facts #190 - The quiet days

As it is part of train that can be automated, it can be used to clear the biter nests around all the expansions periodically. That sounds AWSOME Yes. It really does. This is something I was hoping for, a better way to combat enemy expansion without turning it off. Also. Artillery train just sounds ...

Re: Circuit Network possible make something like requester chest

There are some things you can do with belts. You can run a belt past all your gun turrets and put an inserter for each turret. I feels wasteful to completely fill a belt, so I like to make it a loop and at the start I slowly add items. Early on only one yellow inserter, and remove the items once the...

Re: Help with Trains

The way the loop is signaled, it would wait at the chain signal until the other signal turns green which will not happen because the train itself blocks it. Add some more signals, or remove them both if you only ever want one train in the station / loop area. But that's not what causes the 'no path'...

Re: [15.6]reactor doesnt output fuel cell until new is loaded

Tried this now in 15.6.

I pick up my reactor and place it again to make sure it is empty. I put in one fuel cell with an inserter. Immediately, the empty one is removed by my output inserter. So I don't think this is a bug.

Re: Overriding inserter stack size via circuit network

This looks like a bug, might want to repost in the bug forum. Shorter version. A stack inserter configured with (Enable on A>0, set stack size with control signal=A). It receives A=2: it moves 2 items at the time. Change to A=0: it stops. Change to A=3: it moves 2 items, then 3 at the time. Expected...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

15.0 patch notes said "Blueprint library: Allows for keeping players blueprints between individual game saves (..)".

Does this mean that anything I put into the blueprint library is supposed to show up in other save games automatically? Because I'm not sure how to get it to work.
