Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

Even though I can understand the decision to remove the research queue from a new players perspective I still don't like it from a seasoned players point of view. So I would suggest to make the research queue optional so you have to click it somewhere deep in the options where no new player would no...

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

Nice read! If you integrate the quickbar into the normal inventory, why do you not also integrate the logistic request screen in the Inventory? Reasoning: If you request items you need the required inventory space for them anyway --> Benefit: You know beforehand how much of your inventory is dedicat...

Re: [15.11] Mapzoom Bug

I also find the "new" map behavior unintuitive. You can zoom in quite near in "map view" (i normally never zoom in that far in map mode) and than it "suddenly" switches to "normal view" with a limited view distance. Even worse ist that sometimes it remembers that you used the map zoomed in (just bef...

Re: [Mod 0.14/0.15] Logistic Train Network 1.2.3

Hi all, I would like to set up a compact, rail-based, factory for all items. To keep it compact and loading times still manageable, i would like to set up a LTN Station with stack filter inserters where a train (wagon position is in both cases the same) can be loaded and unloaded. My Problem is that...

Re: [MOD 0.13.15] Robot Army. 0.2.2

I´m not sure if ammo would be a good requirement for your robot army. I don't think that it would add much gameplay wise and would just managing your army harder. I think the ammo problem is taken care of the fact that your army is regularly destroyed. So I like to think that the ammo cost is alread...

Re: Smart dynamic train deliveries with combinator Magick [0.13]

I like the idea of your concept! And even though it seems to work fine using standard combinators, I was thinking if it would be easier to use of it would be a mod. So your blueprints would be reduced to a single entity which would be easy to produce and place. This would make it easier to use and w...

How to reset a counter?

Hi, with 0.13 out it is fairly easy to make an item counter. Just connect your inserter/belt to a arithmetic combinator and wire the result back in (e.g. A + iron plates = A). But how do I reset the counter? For example i would like to count 2 Iron Plates, wait till a trigger condition is met (so re...

Re: [MOD 0.12.29] Robot Soldiers. RTS precursor?

I love your idea! Personally i would find it very cool if your "spawned" soldieres would form a group and than seek out nerby enemy biter nests on their own. Essentially you would be producing your own "biters" which would work in the same way the biters do, just in the opposite way.

Re: What we need for combinators to be fun

I just came back from my holiday and have to say that the combinators haven't realy kicked off since than. I mean most people seem to like the principle concept of them, but I haven't seen many examples of combinators in use. What I found interesting is the combinator build code factory as this is t...

Re: Combinator Build Code Factory

It's a realy nice concept! But you don't need to put aside the number of iron or copper first before you put them on the belt (it just inserts a time delay). Instead you can count the number of items you put on the belt directly.

Re: What we need for combinators to be fun

[...] All of these are quite easy to do with only a handful of combinators.

You are not wrong, but I have to disagree. Yes, all my ...

Re: Fight

I would also like an automated form of defense and attack. For example you could produce attack bots (or tanks, or attack drones or whatever) which will basicly act like friendly aliens. They would gather into one or more groups and than go out to attack the enemy. If they win they push the biters b...

I just read your 0.13 list and have to say: Don't you want to wait with your steam release after 0.13? Reasoning is that 0.13 will fix nearly all the stuff people are will criticize when they start playing 0.12: There is no endgame / ending Combinators are cool, but what use are they actually?
