Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Hm I don't know about the flamethrower ammo, just using crude oil doesn't feel right. Crude oil is very viscose and actually hard to ignite (don't get it burning so), it just doesn't fit as ammo. I'd have it rather if you would need a recipe change to require: 1x crude oil barrel 2x petroleum barrel...

Allow Armors to charge on power poles

Well the idea is simple,

allow the modular/power armor to be charged in the supply area of power poles.
Helps very much in the mid game when you just researched the tech :-D

How to make pallets work, and fix the bot op problem

OK this is a touchy topic for a lot of people but while I like bots for their versatility I also detest them to be able to get that kind of performance. In order to change that, belts need to be able to be competitive with robots in terms of conveniences and speed. But that is not a easy feat consi...

Re: Attack on Albert: Pressure gauges for the pipes

Indeed, this mod adds everything to solve my problems. But I'm not quite satisfied with it. I don't like the idea of adding nine new items when one configurable item is sufficient. Solving the "connection" mess by adding each piece as standalone isn't good practice. Another solution to that would be...

Re: Ideas for some Loading Changes

Well I think you will have to wait until a real pre- game/load lobby system is implemented. It is possible to validate the check sums for a savegame, but squeezing it into the current game wont be easy, at least if my guesses are right. But I agree a proper timestamp system which is only downloading...

Re: Attack on Albert: Pressure gauges for the pipes

Well I'm conditioning my pipe network to be always full pressure with reserves out of the tanks and my current method is not very sustainable one pump in-> two pumps out. That method wastes energy and maybe even resources (haven't tested that yet). I know usually you go refinery -> pump -> tanks -> ...

Attack on Albert: Pressure gauges for the pipes

Actually this one is probably only hard on albert because it needs new Art and very little code (I boldly assume this). Pressure gauges on the pipe for the circuit network, I really needed this in a recent build of mine and ended up misusing a tank and several pumps. It would only be fair since the ...

MAJOR CRISIS Demo is missing files

Yes I know I'm exaggerating a bit here but it is true. I told a friend to try the demo and he was unable to because it is missing: graphics/entity/gate/wall-diode-green.png This is in the live steam branch and on the website so I guess your automated building system messed somewhere up. I was comple...

Re: Multiplicative instead of additive (colored) lighting

Oh nice one I think that will be implemented in some sort soon because they want to give us more options to do with the circuit network :-D
Colored lights are good to begin with.

Map Editor transitions to the "Scenario Editor"

OK, how should I put it. The Map Editor needs love, a lot of it! While the game made significant improvements the Editor seems to be untouched. (no offence here, just seems like it :-) I tried it today for the first time and it lacks some very basic features every editor should have, more on that la...

Multiplayer Matching, Server Browser

OK I'm really looking forward to test your Server Browser. But since it is still in development I want to take the opportunity to make some wishes about it. One major concern for me is the display speed and I thought a lot about which informations should take priority. (Take SE for example. The Serv...

OK folks the Steam Controller is out and I immediately started playing around with it quite a bit. Let me tell you this, that thing is a amazing piece of technology but nothing that works out of the box.

Hm but shouldn't this fit regardless of the window size? Right now the (very)big UI parts aren't usable when the window is too small. I really love Factorio for beeing a game that allows multi tasking and for that window mode is essential. I'm a bit lost here is the UI Scaling fixed to the display s...

[0.12.10] UI still overscaling

This was already reported and fixed once by Twinsen, so I don't know If it's a broken again or leftovers.
Mainly occurs with all giant windows.....
But should be fairly easy to fix :-D
Side Note: A easy workaround is to scale the UI down under the Graphics tab
