Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

just as I had given up hope to see another FFF, there it is. Wow thanks Wube. Factorio continues to go strong.

Now the million dollar question: are you guys working on an expansion? :)

Re: Combinator scalability and maintainability

There is another discussion on a similar topic, could offer some interesting options that will solve at least some of the problems stated: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79407

especially this mod which was mentioned in there: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/fcpu

Re: tech tree to remember last selection

I don’t think so. It might be better to select last tech researched instead. You can also press control f to search techs by name or what they unlock. Preferences clearly differ from person to person (as it should ;)). Therefore devs could offer this as an interface option, like: "default tech...

tech tree to remember last selection

First off, not sure if this topic has been around before, so apologies if it has. Don't you feel it is convenient for the in-game tech tree page to remember the last tech you've viewed? I find myself very often going back and forth to see the techs I wanted to research next, and it quickly becomes v...

Re: Version 0.18.37

very nice! I have been looking forward to this one for a very long time!

one remark: copy icon for blue prints is using the letter "C", wouldn't it be much better visually to just use the "usual" copy icon, like two sheets of paper one in front and one in the back?

Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

I'm going to add my own two bits of opinion: I also think that the beacon tower is too spikey. the GSM-tower-like design sounds like a cool idea the modules shown on the beacon are fantastic, but there definitely should be a toggle in settings to enable or disable the Alt-mode overlay. you say it's...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

Despite the cool animations, don't like the redesign for lot of reasons already mentioned by so many other people: 1) Shape and overall "organic" feel of the building is completely out of line compared to all other buildings. IMHO the steampunk theme with rugged and rusty industrial and me...

Re: integer overflow

I see now where the problem is. I was printing the answer for 2147483647^2 in R, and it gave 4611686014132420608 (I was using: sprintf("%.10f",2147483647^2)). With full precision, the answer is indeed 4611686014132420609 and hence the return value zero. Many thanks for all the quality answ...

Re: integer overflow

at least one case of this was fixed in .18 where mining drills would return a huge negative number when they overflow the 32bit space. I don't think the situation I illustrated is because of a bug. This overflow mechanism is intentional. For instance adding 1 to 2,147,483,647 will give you -2,147,4...

integer overflow

Hi all, For a while I thought I understood how integer overflow works inside combinators (see this old discussion: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?t=20118). But then I started running into outcomes I couldn't fully explain. For instance, while I fully understand why 2,147,483,647 * 2 = -2,...
