[15.2] Train Schedule Tutorial expects 30s to remain

During the tutorial you're asked to add the "wait until empty" condition. However, it explicitly checks to see if the schedule is exactly "wait for 30s or empty", and does not advance to the next step if you remove the 30s delay first (which the next step wants either way). I would expect the tutori...

[0.15] Miners should balance acid with connected pipes

Currently miners only share acid with other directly touching miners, which forces players to use a specific miner layout. Not everyone wants to use this layout, and using layouts that we prefer to use forces us to connect every miner separately. Here's an example of a setup that I'd like to work wi...

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

Note: This does not affect vanilla gameplay, since no vanilla assembling machine is both a furnace (automatic recipe selection) and uses fluids. Whenever a furnace type assembler has a fluid for the output and backs up, the inserter feeding the item part of the recipe goes asleep as normal. However,...

Re: [0.14.22] Inserter idle code causing throughput issues

use a buffer chest to fix Just noticed this. A buffer chest will not fix the problem (or if it does, it's masking the issue), as the issue isn't regarding how fast inserters can pick up items from a belt. Once again, 13 of the 15 copper cable assembler inserters function normally. Only two show the...

Why is this not considered a bug when the behaviour of inserters is incorrect? They clearly take too long to spot that an assembler needs resources, and the behaviour is inconsistent to begin with.

[0.14.22] Inserter idle code causing throughput issues

I'm working on a design for mass producing green circuits, which attempts to use the 15:14 productivity ratio and has a bunch of speed beacons. As a result, the copper demands are...high. All assemblers have a speed of 3. I have a row of copper cable assemblers, all demanding 6 copper per second whi...

Internal change to resources - Multiple minable types

Currently a defined ore contains this (taken from crude oil): category = "basic-fluid", minable = { hardness = 1, mining_time = 1, results = { { type = "fluid", name = "crude-oil", amount_min = 1, amount_max = 1, probability = 1 } } } The issue here is that the resource category (which affects what ...

[14.11] [kovarex] Instant desync when joining server.

Both desyncs were immediate, I never got to see what the map looked like before being forced to redownload endlessly.

The server has been up for at least 12 hours as far as I know, and didn't give me an issue when it was only up for 1 hour.

Screenshot command option to omit terrain

Would be useful for demonstrating a build without any extra visual clutter, without requiring either a nice single-biome area or a lot of concrete laid down.

Information notice, to go with warning an alert notices

I've noticed that there's a few specific events that the player may want to be notified of, that don't really have enough of an impact to get a warning notice: Miners running out of ore (always important, since you can't place them like this) Radars that just finished discovering new land (ignoring ...

If you're using crowd-sourced languages, you may as well use it to the fullest. There's no real reason to not include it.

I would really like to see a lite-version, with a bit less agressiv biters that ignore rails. The thing you want is actually in the first post under notable mentions. It only works for rails (not signals/stations), but it changes rail network building difficulty from 'practically impossible' to 'qu...

Re: Friday Facts #133 - The train struggle

The heavy inserter looks like a great alternative, but I have a couple of suggestions regarding it: 1. When collecting items, it should ALWAYS wait until it's full before moving, which means regular inserters are still useful when throughput is low. 2. There should either not be a smart heavy insert...

Re: File Format suggestion (base128 integers)

reading 4 bytes and interpreting as an int is cheaper than reading a byte, checking the high bit and then branching to shift and read the next byte, goto check for high bit This actually depends on the player's read speed and CPU speed, though typically it is in fact the opposite. It would take a p...

Re: Upgrade to accumulators and possibly solar panels.

I'm against this, the entire point is that they take up a lot of room. In exchange you get a power source that is highly flexible and is free to run.
