Re: Friday Facts #261 - Performance + New player interaction

Regarding tutorials: you mentioned that ideally, a friend would show you how to play and it would take 5 minutes - I'd like to expand on this idea a bit. It's common nowadays for people to watch tutorial videos online, and this medium can be adapted easily to Factorio - via scripted animations. Here...

Re: CZ translation error

This appears to relate to string #2637. I have approved the Spotřeba suggestion, so it should be fixed in the next version.
Note: you could fix it yourself on Crowdin, by voting for translations you consider better (or suggesting new ones).

Re: Friday Facts #255 - Construction tools

I have a couple of questions about the CTRL+Z functionality: 1. If the last removed thing had entities with configurations (e.g. assembling machines) do we get the configurations back, or do we get empty entities? 2. How "deep" is the history? Can I undo everything until the start of the game? A cer...

Re: Fuel unloading from Locomotive

Just a thing to consider: since fuel type affects acceleration of vehicles, if you switch your trains to wood from solid fuel, their routes will end up taking a longer time to complete. For this reason, it's better you use your wood in boilers, furnaces, burner inserters and drills - which only care...

Re: Esperanto Translation.

@Svv If you want to improve the Esperanto localization/translation, you can (and should!) do so via Crowdin. At the moment the game is only 48% human-translated, and I suppose the rest is auto-translated (what you call "google job" :) ) and therefore sounds bad.

Issues with RTL language display

There are issues with the way Right-to-Left (RTL) scripts/texts are displayed in-game. This applies to localizations of two languages available in Factorio: Arabic and Hebrew. Below is a list of issues, as of version 0.16.51, ordered by descending severity in terms of effect on UI/UX. This topic was...

Re: [Twinsen] [for 0.17] Programmable Speaker Audible Distance Bug (Minor)

@Twinsen of course if you want to do it right, it mustn't fade equally on all audio channels - so that we can tell where it's coming from. :)

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

I'm still struggling with the difference between what you call "proper RTL" and "just mirror the whole thing". I.e in your MS example none of the english strings are mirrored, and i thought that's the proper way, but you say it's the cheap way. The difference is subtle but noticeable - when you "ju...

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

Just out of curiosity because some of my mods have GUIs. Is the $proper_fix even remotely automatable? Or would i have to redesign every GUI twice? Because as a "solo modder" i don't have the manpower to do everything twice, and i doubt most of the others have :x. Well, I have no experience creatin...

As always, nice work on the UI update. It feels like something that can genuinely improve the game experience! Onto more pressing issues... Since this GUI redesign phase is probably the last opportunity to add something fundamental to the way the UI is drawn, I urge you once more to improve the supp...

With some default one of course, like TItillium or Roboto. Or Verdana.
I think this is possible. As an example, take a look at:
