Re: Belt Corner Speed or .12 got it wrong

it's also nice to see the blue (yellow/red) line between the items to make it clearer which belt is underneath. functionality is already present - you can clearly see the moving arrows on the Belt even if it's completely backed up. and that means you can see the color. ergo, already present. you wo...

Re: Belt Corner Speed or .12 got it wrong

If there would be a visual change to the belts I would vote for the suggestion of siggyboy.It doesn't solve the problem of the belts consisting of two seperate lanes but it would be a nice adjustment and it's also nice to see the blue (yellow/red) line between the items to make it clearer which belt...

Re: Belt Corner Speed or .12 got it wrong

So we all agree that this is a rather minor problem due to the fact that there is no difference between outer and inner lane, except in an on demand system. The only question left: is it really a good idea to use belts like in my example for an on demand system. The overhead produced due to the belt...

Re: Belt Corner Speed or .12 got it wrong

If it is an on-demand production there is still no difference Compared to a strait belt of the same number of sections the U shape you tested is indeed slower(both lanes total Items per second) in an on demand setting. Having said that, the slow down may be due (in part) to a function of how insert...

Re: Belt Corner Speed or .12 got it wrong

Hi, the whole problem with this is only that the belts are moving at constant speed (even in corners) where they would normally speed up (radial movement). So the outer lane is longer than the inner one. This has already been stated. And yes: that is unrealistic because belts don't work this way. BU...

Re: Failing with headless server

Hurray,

Patch 0.12.4 did it. Making the server work as a relay fixed my issues. I didn't change anything on any of the computers/server and it worked like a charm. Thats what I was waiting for. Thanks to all Devs who fixed MP :D

Re: Multiplayer FAQ

Thanks for the link. I may look at it but at the moment I'm just changing my script to fit my needs. I don't have any real goals for it. Feel free to use it though.

Changes:
- Changed install routine
- Added map create
- Added map delete

Re: Failing with headless server

I'm sorry I don't have a client log at the moment. But still here is the server log.

We already played with 3 people without the headless server but not with the current version.

Failing with headless server

Hi there, I don't know what else to do. Maybe somebody of the people out there has an idea. I set up the 0.12.3 server on a Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS. I got my IPTABLES configured to allow traffic on port 34197 (udp). Now the problem: -> 2 people tried to enter the server via internet -> The first one...

Re: Friday Facts #97 - Greenlight preparations

Is it only me or did they really remove the headless server options in 0.12.2? Did you try the command? The changelog mentioned allowing dots in the file paths for it now, so it's highly unlikely they removed it. Perhaps they just didn't add it to the help switch output? On another note, is that so...

When using a single user server you are completely right. It doens't matter where to put the files.

Re: Multiplayer FAQ

PLEASE! Do not advise people to put programs to "/opt". A software should always be run from a dedicated user. Running from "/opt" would require to run the server as root (which is always a bad idea). Uhm what? I'm pretty sure I can execute binaries in /opt as user. You could but "/opt" is a root d...

Re: Multiplayer FAQ

Just my two cents but for the headless server wiki: New entry: factorio --create mapname -> Creates a new default map for your server with "mapname" as name (can be used to run the server | no need to upload a map from your computer) Also for the linux server: PLEASE! Do not advise people to put pro...
