Re: Support for mod packs

Going to revive this topic instead of making a new one; modpacks would be a really nice addition to the portal.

Re: Removing fluid temperature - thoughts?

How will this affect steam engines and turbines? Currently turbines only draw double the steam but produce far more power due to the vastly increased temperature, and engines attempting to use that 500C steam will be inefficient. My assumption is that the output rate of exchangers and input rate of ...

[0.16.51] Science lab buffers do not respect the speed of the lab

https://i.imgur.com/mzSTTl7.png The left lab has +250% speed, the right lab has +2000% speed. Both labs are being fed by a stack size 1 inserter. The labs are off due to not having all packs for the tech picked. Both labs stop being fed when there are 2 packs. In most cases this is fine, but it can...

Re: [Rseding91] [15.35] [Mods] Inserter stops feeding furnace-type assembler

Sorry for the large delay, forgot about the issue. Relevant mod: https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Hexicube/Hexi_Inline_Ore_Processing (tested with v0.5.1 in 0.16.51) Save is attached. In the top example, I added the inserter before attaching the acid feed, and it initially operated fine. If it happens...

Re: [FFF 260] Pipe junctions should merge, for reduced calculations

you say it makes sense, and that it is logical, but then you have to think about... what constitutes a junction merge? 1 pipe section between 2 junctions? Those Underground junctions would count as 2 pipes between them, so do you limit it to 2 pipes between junctions to merge them? Maximum 2 non-ju...

[FFF 260] Pipe junctions should merge, for reduced calculations

In the most recent FFF the new proposed system is effectively turning the entire pipe network into single pipe segments connected with junctions. This is an improvement in theory, but it mentions junctions would be a little more CPU intensive...and then it shows the last image: https://eu1.factorio....

[0.16.51] Splitter has noticeable wobble at exactly 1x zoom

I assume this only happens with high graphics (double res), and is additionally only there in specific orientations. The problem is a lot harder to see at other zoom levels, except for 0.5x where it is exacerbated. I can see it in fast splitters facing right and down, but not left and up. When looki...

I have a 350MB save where I explored 125k tiles to the right, and it takes a long time to load/save as expected. I've decided to offer it as an optimisation target, to see if e...

Always use 3 s.f. when showing shortened numbers

Currently it's a little inconsistent, it will show 3 s.f. if the abbreviation needs 100s and will show 2 s.f. otherwise. This is what it currently looks like: https://i.imgur.com/Tq4Vnoi.png "1.0k" "10k" "100k" In order to squeeze enough space for this extra digit (since the decimal eats valuable re...

Right now if I want to implement a burner generator in modded I have to create the following: - A water generator - A steam engine - If I want a burn result, an extra entity to extrac...

In light of the announced 0.17 science pack tech nodes (for clarity to new players), I have a proposal to go with it for 0.17: - Production and high-tech packs are made cheaper - Techs that currently require prod/ht packs become more expensive to compensate; alternatively, make blue packs more expen...

Re: s3tc compressing atlases takes up to half a minute

We might also make an option to use lower-res sprites for shadows. And last but not least lot of shadow sprites could be cropped more because they contain also parts that is always occluded by machine that is casting the shadow. Honestly, for shadows, you could probably get away with something like...

When adding drain to accumulators via a mod, it is added to the accumulator but does not always drain power. It appears to only drain power when not connected to a network. A bare-bones mod is attached for reproducing the problem. The only thing it does is give accumulators 5kW drain. Steps to repro...

Max zoom should be 2x

Max zoom in amount should be 2x since HD graphics will be 1:1 at that scale, instead of 3.281x that is currently allowable. Alternatively, 4x would work, but you'd need a massive resolution to even benefit from anything beyond 2x. Here's some examples of the same area: 3.281x: https://i.imgur.com/XM...

Assemblers should show in the UI that output blocks

A relatively simple change for new players. If the assembler has enough in all outputs to cause inserters to not want to add more items, the output slots should tint yellow. If any outputs are full, those slots should tint red instead.

Re: [0.15.35] Boiler type entities cannot eject burnt items

Thanks for the report. This is unfortunately a limitation of the game as it is currently. An entity can't have 2 output inventories that inserters will grab from meaning the boiler which already has the main fuel as output can't also have the burnt result output. I've yet to see an effective design...
