Re: What inspired you to buy Factorio?

I purchased immediately after seeing the most recent trailer (this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVvXv1Z6EY8). That got me so damned excited I was tripping over myself to grab the CC.

I don't recall how I stumbled on it; probably stumbling around the steam store.

Re: 3D rendering

How about we keep the pressure on asking for basic multi threading before we get into the weeds of GPU computing? :D This is one of the few games keeping me on quad core parts for the few hundred extra Mhz. As for a 3d factorio, that'd be pretty damn sweet, but I think low priority at this stage rea...

Re: Revisiting Frame Rate Lock

Tl;DR A higher frame-rate cannot help an ~~archaic~~ low-quality LCD that blurs. ... The Dell U3011 is a 7ms IPS. IPS is generally not recommended for gaming but they make some special low-blur IPS monitors for gaming. This is most likely a design "defect" in the monitor that cannot be fi...

Re: Revisiting Frame Rate Lock

I am curious as to what this IPS glow effect is, since I do have an IPS screen myself. EDIT: I looked up IPS glow... apparently it's an issue with LED side-lights? Well, mine is an old fashioned IPS, it has a cold cathode backlight, cold being an ill-worded name for it, because it gets really damn ...

Re: Revisiting Frame Rate Lock

Fairly certain. No blur on a LCD just isn't possible. Pick any object on screen, zoom in somewhat so it pans across the screen at a decent clip when you move, then move and try to track that object with your eyes as it moves across the screen. On any sample and hold style display the object will bec...

Revisiting Frame Rate Lock

I may have accidentally ncero'd an older thread on this, so I deleted that reply and am just starting a new topic. I know the frame rate lock has been covered before, but I thought I'd bring it up once more with a different perspective. As some have said before, "Factorio is not CS:GO", an...

Re: Friday Facts #137 - The release scarecrow

Unless something has changed (quite possible), a previous FF mentioned that all inserters would becoming smart inserters - so I personally would expect the "rapid" inserters (terrible name) to have smart-ness. I was marveling at the short memory myself. There's no need to worry about smar...

Re: RE Series Part 1: A wild LUA appears !

I could see this technique maybe being used to make something like Skyrim's SKSE for Factorio hooking into game functions from Lua to enhance the capabilities of mods.

I'm no artist either, but I tried to come up with something. What do you think?

This looks pretty good. Do you have plans to also provide alternate chains for copper?

Re: General Compatibility Patch

An interesting idea. There was no issue with adding inventory slots to the treefarms? I was under the impression furnaces needed a specific number of inventory slots. Also, did you apply this change to the mk2 fields as well? I'm still pretty new to modding this game so I was unaware of any potenti...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Magnets, Motors, Transformers, and More!

I also noticed that Treefarm Lite ignores the new Resin minable resource in the games trees. I also made a patch to fix that in Treefarm Lite. See the following thread:

General Compatibility Patch

Hello, I was attempting to combine Treefarm Lite with the mod "Magnets, Motors, Transformers, and More!" which adds a 10% chance to mine Resin from trees, but I learned that both mods had issues working together. After delving into the Treefarm code I learned that the output of a tree farm...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Magnets, Motors, Transformers, and More!

I noticed this mod conflicts with other mods that modify trees and iron ore. For me this included hard crafting and treefarm. I've developed a patch that will help avoid such conflicts by attempting to modify mining results in place instead of overwriting them. I also added treefarm lite and hard cr...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Magnets, Motors, Transformers, and More!

In order to get the Monazite ore to appear you first must have the boblibrary mod loaded and functional. Then you must edit the file "prototypes/ores/monazite-ore.lua" file in this mod and change the line " enabled = false," to " enabled = true,". I'm unsure why it's di...
