Re: Production and Electrical Network GUI Improvements

Why is more important on the left an issue? I hadn't ever noticed the inconsistency and I don't think many people will notice the change there. The peak makes sense to some degree and kind of doesn't in other respects, if the peak in production is possible because of a backlog of items due to previo...

Re: New sticky in General

Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn't personally I think I'm suggesting the idea. And the "this forum" never stood out as a place to post this sort of discussion (but then I never go in there) I thought it was more for complaints and asking for mod intervention/help than ideas about the way ...

Re: Suggestion: Leave behind shadow threads when moving threads

I had a different solution for ideas and suggestions being posted to general , I'm not sure how applicable it is to other parts of the forum (like people not knowing the difference between technical help and gameplay help) Also I may have posted it in the wrong place, maybe not though since the peo...

New sticky in General

TL;dr - new sticky to signpost ideas from general to here as a one size fits all Why? - As a result of a tangent discussion in this thread . We (I/the members who post to this forum often) have noticed that it's almost too easy to miss the ideas and suggestions forum on the main page and many people...

Re: After 400+ hours a few problems and suggestions

If you're driving then you know there are rules for driving and at least one of those is/would be a speed limit, if you're driving and don't know this you're likely a child and know that adults drive and children don't, "Driving is something mommies and daddies do not me but I like to pretend s...

new to forum, first post moved to the suggestions forum and now they can't find it to reply, I'm pretty sure that they won't have known to look for the ideas before or that lists like this are generally bad.

Re: Late-Game: Teleporter with a twist

Kinda like maybe think of this as Cameron's Avatar type thing you can jump across the map to your other body. Or Minecraft Sync Mod would be cool to add to the game as a mod or in vanilla, put a body anywhere on the map and swap between them if each body had a different loadout for storage, clothing...

Re: Reasons to explore: new ores; different biomes; etc.

Um not a fan of rare resources in limited biomes Imagine if Minecraft (DYAC) diamonds generated like emeralds, only in one biometric out of 30, only 1 in each chunk, and you needed them to do any of the end goals (beacons wither fighting Dragon fighting) they'd be so rare as to make the game not com...

Re: Belt Speed customisation

I can see this being useful to moderate/slow certain places in belt factories to say deliver precise ratios just by using belt speed but I fear that the UPS effect of something like this would be a drop because more checking is going on to set the speed than is saved by not moving the belt when line...

Re: Factorio theme cursor

Making a mouse/cursor themed actually makes it less useful and useable if it's the same colour scheme as the game you can easily lose it. I realize some games don't want their aesthetic ruined by a cursor but generally speaking I think it's bad for accessibility. (Gah I'm being negative/critical abo...

Your suggestion of not perfect Here's a setup.

Re: round up fluids reading train inventory

totally agree with you mrvn it could go wrong if you don't lock your station until you have the space for items received and enough product made to refill the train, I don't do much (any) multifluid/multi item trains, I have no need of them. But the same thing can be achieved with something like thi...

Re: Items per second info on machines.

Once you know the algorithm there's no real puzzle to Rubik cubes I consider the puzzle aspects of these numbers to be discovering an adequate formula not applying an existing formula.

So each inserter inserting items setting flags is O(n) Flag = Flag or inserter.performscheck() Which is more efficient: Previous+alpha-beta+gamma-delta... with no consideration for if alpha beta gamma and delta effect the same box and having to perform checks on all of those and epsilon and lambda a...

Re: round up fluids reading train inventory

With your simple logic I think this might happen: - the train gets pumped down to 0.4 water - the steam pumps turn on but can't do anything yet - water gets down to 0 and 0.4 steam comes in - steam gets into the water pumps My suggestion wouldn't be possible without 2 pumps connected to the same ta...

Re: Construction Robots should have mining power

What I'm saying is that the mining speed is covered, if you assume they have the same reach as the player and the time they're in reach of the item they're mining it then actually by almost every metric I can think of bots are slower than the player because the time they take to cover the distance b...
