Re: [Poll] Battery design that stabilizes 0.16.51

That's just your subjective opinion. I look at it and I like what I see. Well then THIS is YOUR subjective opinion: The battery looks exactly like a real life battery you can buy at the super market in mint condition What? I don't buy those batteries! The shops where I go don't even put this thing ...

Re: [Poll] Battery design that stabilizes 0.16.51

How the hell was it out of place?] I already told you: Because it looks like taken straight form a sales catalog picture. The battery looks exactly like a real life battery you can buy at the super market in mint condition while everything else in the game looks like halfhazardly thrown together sc...

Re: Friday Facts #253 - Fans & Fun

So with new walls, turrets are just begging to be put on top of the walls as a strong foundation for them. I came here to compliment the Devs on how awesome the walls are, and to ask this same question! So can we please be able to stick turrets ontop of walls? Does anybody remember Earth 2160? Wall...

Re: The thing about blueprints which fell under the table

I very much like this idea. Would make my recent blueprints easier because I wouldn't have to instruct people on how to construct and schedule trains to make the example function. I'd also be able to drop blueprints of large stackers already full of trains ready to go. But trains aren't static item...

Re: The thing about blueprints which fell under the table

You can copy paste those settings from a pre-existing train. Yes, of course. But what train when you moved all your blueprints to a new game or shared them with strangers and friends on the internet? I could upload my blueprint books to a steam guide right this second and everything would work righ...

The thing about blueprints which fell under the table

What about blueprints of trains? I mean anyone who has worked with circuit network to micromanage their trains (even if it's just to use generic station names) knows that trains can require very setup specific conditions to work properly. Sometimes these condition become very complex if you use them...

Re: Friday Facts #249 - Dead end exploration

So basically the question is whether to make blueprints first class pointers or references. Why not give us both? :D To be serious though I think going along the lines of proposal 3 is the best choice. Why not just fix syncing problems between 2 worlds by closing that second, uneccessary world? Simp...

Toggle "react to allied blueprints"

Playing in multiplayer, it would be really awesome if there was a way to stop personal roboports from interfering with other players blue prints and deconstruction orders. 1) It's really annoying for the other player if he keeps reworking a setup or blue print and I accidentially bump into his area ...

You've inspired me to build more naturally looking factories in the future and explore design patterns which make the process of expanding with new techs much more organic. Love this game.

Re: Improve co-op Combat and Vehicles

1) Break force Tanks should either have a better break by default or benefit from the Breakforce Research (have their own version of it worst case). I'd like the tank to allow for faster reactions and sharper control especially when it comes to emergency breaking. At the very least, you should be a...

Re: Train station reservations [solved by mod]

I've been working to solve this via circuits all this time and then it hit me: You can solve it really easily within the train network itself! Say you have a stacker followed by several unloading stations. If the whole setup is about hadnling a single type item (e.g. only copper ore) you can simply ...

Re: Friday Facts #229 - Taiwan report & Lamp staggering

More than the lamp staggering I miss lamps turning on when darkness creeps in. Every dawn and dusk there is a time when sunlight is dim but lamps are switched off. It's kinda annoying :(
Wish I could change it with circuits.

Absolutely love them. Great work! We believe that the new stand fits much better to the laser turret as it doesn't need any super heavy basing, and makes the two turrets more visually distinguishable. I get that I really do. More elegant basing totally fits laser turrets. However,... it's kinda weir...
