Re: Friday Facts #290 - Rail building changes & High-res icons

Does the Icons for Assembler-3 not bother anyone else?

I mean, its logical. #1 has 1 gear. #2 has 2 gears. but the layout of #3... yeah, THOSE GEARS WONT WORK!

Re: Version 0.17.24

there have been several days with multiple versions going out. If this video game gig fails maybe they could become exterminators, their bug squashing skills are on point!

Re: Version 0.17.6

Sweet, i was just finishing up my initial .17 playthrough, ready to get into a more serious go at it after getting used to new ui and recipes, just in time to see the map gen get some tweaks! not really complaining, but I always seem to be rather annoyed by map gen at the beginning of every major ve...

I cannot find where to bind keys to the new quickbar gui? started looking to bind the personal roboport and exoskeleton toggles, only to find none. while i'm on the subject of the controls interface: tabs for each section might be better, one giant page that just keeps scrolling kindof makes it too ...

[0.17.0] Water scale slider reversed

Not sure if this is intended? or if so why it would be. But it seems the slider is inversed?

scale slider: 17% = water everywhere, 600% = very few sporadic pools.

Blueprint notes

tldr: So, how many of you have bluprint libraries like mine: hundreds of the same things over and over because when you look through it, your eyes just 'gloss over' because you arent sure of the details? the problem: I keep making new blueprints of things, and trying to fit a clever condensed code i...

Re: Breaking Force upgrades and Tanks/Cars

I bring this up a lot. As someone who builds high performance cars for a living... rule 1: you do not make something faster without addressing its ability to slow down.

but it always falls on deaf ears.

Re: Achievment suggestions

since many players the longer they play the more they gravitate toward the "x rockets per y timeframe" type of play, a Rocket counter set of achievements (across all saves) would be nice. or maybe since we get science from it now, instead perhaps a "white science packs spent " co...

Re: Option to disable no-power flashing

one of the first things i look for whenever there is a major version change, is in the setting to see if there is a way to customize which flashing world and map icons are shown or not. I would love option toggles, or even better hotkeyable options, for all of these: power, bots, circuits, etc. Or a...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

something we need in pipes is automatic backflow protection, pipes need to be one-way only naturally. at the very least, every X length of pipe should have a manually adjustable direction control, without adding a new inventory part.

We need to revisit braking force for non-trains.

Now that we have nuclear fuel and insanely fast vehicles, we really need a way to slow them down faster. I'm not just saying this on a whim either, i build race cars and hot rods for a living. Faster cars NEED faster brakes, and its something i DEMAND all my customers take note of and make allowance...
