Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

I do not like the oil changes, particularly moving conbots later.

Re: Did no one else notice massive nerf of tank in 0.17?

Adding the equipment grid to tank would be a lot of fun yeah. Gimme! :D Okay, we have two devs saying they want it. It's already in the game to the extent that it can easily be used by mods. We better get this in vanilla. Whilst it sounds great (and hence I also want it), I suspect it will probably...

Re: Did no one else notice massive nerf of tank in 0.17?

A simple buff for the tank would be to make it more of a juggernaut. Let it drive over trees and small biters without slowing down and taking much damage. That would make tank combat feel distinctly different from the car or power armor combat. Making it push biters in addition to damaging them wou...

Re: Did no one else notice massive nerf of tank in 0.17?

The tank also easily gets stuck and doesn't have a good way to defend itself when it happens. The nerf to the machine gun will make this worse. The tank should have more armor, more crushing power, a real flamethrower instead of the torch, and the main cannon should instagib anything short of a behe...

When implementing deprecation of mods on the mod portal, please give us the ability to include deprecated mods in our searches. I have dug up abandoned mods multiple times with the goal of using their guts in something of mine.

Different power icon for buildings disabled by a switch

Currently, when a power switch is controlling a group of buildings, the "no power" sprite is the same as if power were simply disconnected. This causes some confusion, particularly in multiplayer, and frequently people "fix" the lack of power by adding power poles. Naturally, this breaks whatever th...

Re: Friday Facts #169 - Combat revisit 2

I do not like the idea of a minimum range for the flamethrower. It's entirely counterintuitive and will make it annoying to use. It already damages the player, why does it need a minimum range also?

Re: 90 degree 4-belt merge

5x7, now that's what I could live with: Seems like my 5x7 solution is the most compact one presented in the thread to date that still supports full throughput. 5x7 = 35 tiles, 6x6 would still be 36 tiles. I really like this design because it should easily fit anywhere where two lanes are otherwise ...

Re: Flamethrower behavior changed.

The new flamethrower is much better. Why on earth would I not want the flamethrower to spray where I tell it to?

[Request]Cargo Locomotive

I'd like a spriteset for a heavy locomotive. It should be the same size as the default Factorio locomotive. It should look something like an armored-up SD70(the picture) in Factorio's graphical style.

But I think seronis is right: Why not another train with that values instead of a replacement? You could use both trains and don't miss the standard one.
I think I might do this. I'll go beg for a cargo locomotive spriteset.

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

Regarding trains, why not just make train max speed affected significantly less by the number of wagons its pulling? Then we'd be able to build giant steel snakes instead of the tiny things we use now.

Re: Support - Uranium Power

Am I doing this right? I'm producing power, but it just feels wrong. The one on the right was the final blueprinted design. That north pressurized water tank is not connected to that normal water pipe, even though it looks it. The lone steam engine is an overflow dump. http://i.imgur.com/S8rMJi3.png

Additional complexity is detrimental when it doesn't add anything meaningful.

Re: [0.12.X] Cannon Turret

Same here. Tried to make a custom flame thrower and ran into issues. That said, a rocket turret would work fine. Also, you might be able to spawn the projectile further out, though it would look bad. Lastly, at least make the turret 1k hp or so durable, so it is it's own wall. That and note that it...
