Re: Friday Facts #402 - Lightspeed circuits

There are a lot of ways to do it, but we wanted to keep it simple. So we decided that there is just a single radar channel for each surface (still separated between red and green). This means, you don't have to configure anything , you just connect the wire and you are ready to go. If the radar los...

Re: Friday Facts #400 - Chart search and Pins

Please give a way to mute/ignore alert types we don't care about. I play with alerts muted because endless minor damage alerts seriously trigger me.

Re: Friday Facts #396 - Sound improvements in 2.0

The inventory pick up and drop sounds are exceedingly grating on the ears. The inserter made me want to vomit, and the others weren't much better. Please tell us they can be disabled... Or just have an option for pre-2.0 generic inventory sounds. All that is needed is the auditory feedback that an i...

Re: Factorio price increase - 2023/01/26

Someone on the Steam discussions did some digging and found these official balance sheets for Wube Software. Suddenly the reason for the price increase is all too apparent. I hope Wube Software doesn't run out of money.. :o :shock:

Re: vanilla death world too hard

Desert maps are tough. If also the biters are very near the ore patches, it can be quite problematic. Thanks for the tips. I've also seen players place primitive buildings as walls to funnel biters into single file arrangements. I consider this a hack, but seems desert starts are meant to be an ama...

Re: Factorio price increase - 2023/01/26

TL;DR: I doubt Wube is in immediate danger of going bankrupt even after the inflation. But, They also don't have 50+ years of money in the bank. Maybe 3-7 years.. And even then, that's assuming zero growth of the company from this point on, no additional projects, no way to put a second game in the...

Factorio price increase breaks your promise

This change will become effective as of the 16th of April 2018. This is the final Factorio price update, unless something unforeseen happens , s...

Re: [1.1.55] GUI; public lobby filters are not persistent through game restart now

Thanks for the report however that change was done on purpose. Griefing the playerbase was done on purpose? Why? Those settings need to be saved. This means that every time someone loads it up, they have to set the filters all over again, adding up to years of additional effort forced upon the play...

Re: We need more control over bots

This is not a feature suggestion. I was putting down some roboports in an outpost. The outpost didn't have power. After having put some construction bots in one of the ports, they rushed out to get some trash from me and stuck around as there was no storage. Then they bounced from port to port as t...

Re: Armour & Gun quickbar location question

So it doesn't actually solve the issue it was supposed to. The info can still overflow the screen, even with the weapons moved to the left. Why not actually solve the issue by making the info panel on the right scrollable if it gets too big and suddenly screen size is not an issue any more and the ...

Re: Last hope: blueprint library recovery from save file. (v1.1.9+)

Only reason why they were not possible to be extracted was that when a player joins with an empty blueprint library, there is a blueprint library synchronization happening which removes all the blueprints that player does not have. But why remove them? Because player does not have them in local sto...

Would it be possible to override that for modded games? Specifically, Pyanodons, and the seablock mod for it? Early game, I'm slowly producing liquid glass from quartz at a rate of 10 fluid units per 10 seconds or so, and with the underground pipe length I was using, I was experiencing 75% fluid lo...

Re: please do not use floating point value in Factorio

As far as I know the reason why pipes flush when below 0.05 fluid is to prevent an incredibly tiny amount just sitting there clogging up the pipe(s). Since all fluids in the game are infinite it's a non-issue; more will come in and the cycle continues. Would it be possible to override that for modd...
