Re: Friday Facts #320 - Color correction

Loving the new colouring.

Perhaps darker/less saturated tones could be used when in a polluted area though? Then you would really feel the effect of destroying the native area.

Re: Return the object avoidance mode for ghost rail building

I play with a self imposed challenge of avoiding chopping trees unless reasonably necessary. I don't want to accidentally destroy a tree while building rails. When you are planning a long rail line, zoomed far out, it isn't always obvious if something would be deconstructed. The previously existing ...

Re: Vehicle manufacturing buildings (No vehicles in inventory)

I love this whole idea!

Doubt this will make it into vanilla, but even a mod to do this would be fantastic.

Re: Return the object avoidance mode for ghost rail building

+5 Feels very frustrating to see the devs handwave away removal of functionality as streamlining. I almost always use the "rail planner avoiding obstacles" mode, even if not to build directly in that mode, but simply to have the rail layout highlighted, while tapping shift to tell me if it changes, ...

Re: Blueprint Editor Shift Drag Box

+1

I would also suggest making it so that if you drag a blueprint along the ground then it places copies in a straight line - and in a rectangular grid if you drag diagonally - instead of wherever. Prime example: placing long, wide areas of transport belt.

Re: Factorio needs to be brighter (w/ images and source code)

Sounds like the topic needs renaming from "Factorio needs to be brighter" to "Factorio needs a gamma slider". And with less dubious software to painstakingly rewrite all your images when you could just fiddle with the colour curves in your display settings instead. (There's a way to get to this in W...

Re: ui-qol: combinator constant input field pre-select

By clicking the selector, you'd be acknowledging that the other controls will be disabled while you select a signal or input a constant, an action that would take tiny amounts of time if this change were implemented. No, I wouldn't be. There is no indication immediately on the signal selector that ...

Re: Quickbar, replace slot with current item

+1

If right click overwrites a used slot with the item in hand, perhaps right clicking a used slot without any item in hand should also clear it? Then middle click wouldn't be needed at all.

Re: ui-qol: combinator constant input field pre-select

Automatically selecting the first required field is just good UI form design. This is basic stuff. At worst, a Tab should take you to that field. it's not a required field, it's not in a form, tab changes weapon. But if it was a web doc not a game I would agree on all 3 points Why not just add an e...

Re: Rearranging/renumbering toolbelt rows

I would like to propose that the square that has the number on it is draggable, and that drags the entire row as a whole. Dragging this row up or down would move the others around, like you're "inserting" the row in a different position. After the player releases the mouse button, the row is insert...

There's really no reason it shouldn't allow as many researches queued up as you want, if it had a horizontal scrollbar.

Re: Better mechanism for hand building over ghosts before robots

How about a compromise that doesn't overpower hand-auto-building: Either: 1. You have to click (or click and drag over) each ghost you want to build (with no item selected), it then builds it as long as you have the item in your inventory. Or: 2. You have to walk over each ghost you want to build, t...

Re: Backward locomotives

For passenger only use it would make sense to add a DMU, which would be symmetric and could be driven in either direction with the same speed/acceleration.

For anything else I can't really see backward driving locomotives happening.

Re: [0.17X]More recipe options aside from "normal" and "expensive"

+1, and arguably "very complex" should introduce additional intermediate recipes and items that would not be seen elsewhere.

Not holding my breath though and happy to stick with mods for this one!

Re: Using Arrow Keys for Instant Item Direction; In Addition to Rotating with R and Shift-R

What about just adding an option so you always place items in the direction your character is facing? And pressing R would rotate an object to that direction.

I could probably get on board with that myself.

Re: [0.17] Remove military science from power armor Mk2 and portable fusion reactor research

I generally play without biters these days, this thread is why my previous 0.15 game didn't use personal roboport, I was hoping it would be possible without military science packs in 0.17 but was sad to see this isn't the case.
