Re: Friday Facts #403 - Train stops 2.0

To round out the improvements to remote access, I would like to suggest a fuel drone, something like a long distance drone that will carry 1 stack of fuel to a train that has run out. The awesome solution would be something like these IRL long-distance drones that deliver medical supplies to remote...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

Quality is something that feasibly can be turned off. One screenshot here lists scrap recycling under "quality". So it doesn't look like it can be turned off :/ Even if quality could not be turned off, quality items are not produced unless you put quality modules in your machines. If you ...

  • Added show_generated_chunks debug option which shows uncharted yet generated chunks on the map.
All the better for "cheating" to see what has been generated without using /editor and savescumming.

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

Pretty sure during the Quality discussion, most people came to the conclusion that items with different Qualities don't stack. That Quality FFF (https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-375) show its possible to use splitters with only quality as a filter condition. If different Qualities items don't mix...

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

Is it just me or does the second to last animation have two states? It seems to move some time and stay still some time. Someone else mentioned that lag would make the animation worse, but I do not think so: as the game lags, the belt speed would also decrease, whereas these belts move at full speed...

Re: Friday Facts #392 - Parametrised blueprints

Instead of a fixed number of signals from 0-9 I would recommend a tag/name based system. I agree that names would be better, but if you look at what happens when changing the parameters, you see that originally the variable signals are in the blueprint, and later they are changed to your selection:...

If Factorio is like programming, you just added Vim, when before we only had notepad.

as far as I know only desert has different resource rules? and other biomes just differ in how much vegetation they have
I was not aware of any differences in resource generation for deserts. What is the difference?

Thanks for the report however I can't reproduce any crash or freeze doing the steps you provide.

Can you provide a save file that's in the broken state?
Load this save, then open the map view. I also attached my configuration and log, in case those are important.

Re: Multiplayer headless server not running, Hosting multiplayer game failed: Error when opening permission denied

Did you try simply changing the file permissions for "C:\Users\tobia\FACTORIO\Factorio"? I would guess that because you created a new folder in your user folder, the default permission does not allow random applications to read or write. You could try moving the folder to your desktop or s...

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

At first I thought this was going to be a bad idea, but now that I have thought about it more, I think it will probably be fine. I was originally worried that having so many different kinds of items would cause me some frustration at not being able to make things uniform, but I think it will probabl...

If you are the only one desyncing, it is most likely a problem with your RAM. I suggest testing your memory.

[1.1.90] naming a station "[img=item.]" causes game to freeze in train menus

To reproduce, create a new vanilla save, place a train stop anywhere (no trains or other entities are required), and rename the stop to [img=item.] Opening the train menu, opening the stop, or opening any train will all cause the game to freeze and become unresponsive. This also happens when opening...

there's a mod for that
Well, I think it is not exactly the same as the suggestion, because you still press the forward button to move. I just mean that if steering was aligned to the movement direction button that mod would be obsolete.
