Targeted/Directional Radars

Summary: New radar building and research which doesn't scan in all directions and in the immediate vicinity, but instead a player-defined patch at any range provided enough power can be supplied. Details/thoughts: You plop down a vanilla radar, it consumes 300kW and immediately gives you I think a 7...

Equipment Module - Cloaking or Invisibility

Title says it all I think. Would be great for late-game battle against the biters. I've never done PvP but I bet it would really spice things up there as well. Maybe a mandatory recharge time? Maybe linked to research so that it starts at only 10 seconds, recharge 20 at base and decreases recharge t...

Ah, then it's this one: 88018.
How frustrating, I could have swore I ruled that out before filing my report! No matter, thanks!

Your video clearly shows that there a no repair packs.
I'm sorry, this is really bad footage as I was fumbling around trying to find things in a cluttered inventory. But indeed there are -- if you look at 1:12 I do put repair packs in the yellow spidertron and nothing happens.

[1.0.0] Spidertron Roboport Not working

I don't really know how to reproduce this, I just noticed it while playing so I fired up OBS and started recording. You can see in the recording around 1:40 I figure out a workaround by picking up the spidertron and placing it back down again. I've attached the log file and the save file just prior ...

[0.18.26] Audio - Incorrect Vehicle Entry Sound in Map View

See attached IRC log - not just my machine, not just on one OS platform. Sorry if this has already been reported, I could not find any similar topics. Reproduction works best when you mute the game music and crank up the game effects to maximum Two ways to reproduce: Method A: Place a vehicle (Tank ...

[Not a bug] Collision Box Ignores Entities

Imgur Link: https://i.imgur.com/SWJmVh7.mp4

Sorry if this is already a known bug/feature. I noticed this symptom with walls so that's what I demonstrated in the gif but I also tried the collision with transport belts, chests, and even an assembling machine and all worked.

Re: Factorio on Stadia please

How much of the game processing is accomplished by the server in a multiplayer game? Literally none. Zero. Nothing. 100% of the game processing happens on every game client in syncronization with eachother. Each and every tick will always have the same result, and end in the same state. If it doesn...

Re: Factorio on Stadia please

I don't mean to derail the thread but the OP has given me the following thought. How much of the game processing is accomplished by the server in a multiplayer game? I imagine being able to run the game from a multiplayer server from any popular cloud provider and then accessing the server with the ...

Re: Virtual Logistic Networks

Closest I see is: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Robo-Charge-1x1/discussion/5cec7e276325fc000ce98539 ... Edit: whoops. That mod even includes differently ranged versions: "Mod that adds a new small charging towers (one tile) that can charge 4 robots, though they can't dock with it, and they hav...

Re: Virtual Logistic Networks

Thanks to the both of you for your constructive responses! It's good to see some interest in this idea - makes me feel like I'm not alone. Edit: only option is to make a bunch of roboports with smaller ranges. I think I've seen some with no support for bots leaving/entering, only charging, don't kno...

Virtual Logistic Networks

TL;DR - Read the summary Preamble I'd like to apologize in advance if my lexicon is a bit off - I haven't played Factorio for some time but I'd like to get into it again if I could find a mod or solution to my problem. I also understand that the Robot logic is very complicated so I completely accept...
