Re: Friday Facts #297 - New resource icons

Is it just me, or when the ore goes on a bend to the right, there's a bit of a glitch in the appearance where the bend goes into the straight?

[0.17.8] Rotating unelectrified Red Inserter, Graphic unchanged

When I place a red inserter down in an area without electricity, then press R on my keyboard to rotate the inserter, the yellow arrow correctly shows the new direction, but the inserter itself retains the original orientation instead. Also happens with other inserters (eg. Blue) (When doing this in ...

Re: Friday Facts #282 - 0.17 in sight

Accuulators, how will the "zapping" work when you have two next to each other? Each with their own zap (so two almost on top of each other on the left and right side of the accumulator, and a bit more space on the top and bottom), or will they both share the same zap effect? If the latter, have you ...

Re: Friday Facts #280 - Visual Feedback is the king

If a station is not reachable because of no pathhow about drawing the yellow line backwards from the station until it breaks? So it would be easy to see where the failure is. Third gif down sounds like it might help with this problem, Ctrl will highlight the route from the station to your cursor po...

Re: Friday Facts #280 - Visual Feedback is the king

Oh my, those UI changes in FF279 and FF280 look AWESOME! 0.17 is looking to be one of the best updates for an already fantastic game.

Thank you all for your hard work on this.

Is there a way to get the mod to not take my Small Electric Poles in the early game? Every time I put down a Stone Furnace without coal in inventory, it's eating my poles which isn't good

Abort Loading Multiplayer/Online Game

Occasionally I try to load a multiplayer/online game, and it perpetually just tries to load which can get quite annoying as I have to physically close Factorio using the Task Manager as there's no other way to get out of it.

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

If you are looking at ways to nerf robots, have them smash to the ground if they run out of juice instead of moving at very slow speed, where you then need a rescue bot to take them to a repair workshop to restore to working use. Any robots hovering around a robot port waiting for a recharge will st...

Maybe the time is right to review the whole blueprints system, I don't like that it creates items to hold in inventory to make it work.

[15.10] Red Lights when they should be green

I'm finding that when I have pre-existing railways, and then remove tracks, lights are frequently turning red and staying red. For example, here I just removed a crossover track, and now there's a light that turns red and stays red. This then causes my trains to all get blocked up as it never change...

Rail Stop Name on Maps

When I build two or more stops and allocate them the same name, this is displayed on the map for each stop. This can cause overlapping names and stop dots when one would be sufficient.

Is it possible to have rail stops that are in close proximity to only show once on the map?

When you click "Install mods" button in the Mods window pane, can there be some kind of confirmation you have clicked that button, and that it needs to load the data.
