Re: Changing the Default Tank Controls

Why not bind shoot to mouse button 3/4/5 which are commonly on most mice now (scroll click/back/forward)

Personally I bind my picker tool (eyedropper) to mouse button 3 (middle/scroll click) cause it's a tonne more intuitive to pick and place with one hand but you could easily use it as your trigger

Re: round up fluids reading train inventory

Nope I get why you made the thread I'm saying you can't be so dismissive of other people's points because they are just as pedantic/valid as your own. "There is a simple solution use it" is not a valid argument unless it goes along with "you're trivializing part of the puzzle". R...

Re: Display maximum historical pollution spread

No but being able to identify the cause of pollution isn't that simple say you have an ore patch that's now completely mined out and your base's Boolean cloud looks like a peanut by being able to see the gradient you can better predict where that removal of the mine reduces the pollution cloud you n...

Re: Display maximum historical pollution spread

You need to store the value of the maximum pollution vs current pollution which is probably going to be an int>255 or a float, 2 bytes not boolean If current > max Max = current End if 3 lines of code It's no good to just say if a chunk has been polluted cause if you drive through a chunk or similar...

Re: Display maximum historical pollution spread

Not one bit probably 2 bytes per chunk but it adds 3 lines of code to each chunk per tick, I'm not sure how that fits in the optimization

Re: Personal robots prioritizing nearest first

This has gotten to long to quote and since the devs aren't interested in fixing this anyway it's a bit of a waste of time. So just some final comments. I agree this has gone on quite long enough. You think I'm wrong, I think this idea will prevent me playing the game at my current stages because it...

Re: CODE: Optimize Robot Orders outside reach of Roboports

I haven't read whole thread, just first three posts. There are lists for construction, deconstruction and repair and out of network variants of these lists. If there is more than 270 unassigned jobs total (which should take 1.5 second to scan trough normally), personal roboport starts searching its...

Yeah I didn't raise the details of the other thread because this idea is bad but to point out that the way in which you think it works doesn't match reality Inside[0].dispatch() Flag = Inside[0].flag //say 0 for dispatched, 1 for waiting on item and/or bot, 2 for not in roboport temp=Inside[0].pop()...

Re: CODE: Optimize Robot Orders outside reach of Roboports

This is a common misconception due to how it appears being completely separate from how it's coded, scanning the personal roboport area is not only inefficient it'd cause lag cause the surface scanning algorithm isn't designed or optimized for repeated running on large areas. I'll repeat from the fi...

Re: CODE: Optimize Robot Orders outside reach of Roboports

My understanding from what mods said in this thread https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=49429 is that there's only one list for everything and it does one check of one item per tick. The 600 items is actually a side effect of the last 600 (ten seconds worth) items that were attempted...

Re: Map Labeling Tool

I know picking up the stone can be a pain but popping it down can be done fairly quickly. That demonstration took about 2 minutes to set up including running to get the stone. (Although I admit it's something I had smelted) you don't need solid lines either placing a dotted line for provisional area...

Re: Map Labeling Tool

I'd like to point out this is still doable :) in game as it is right now and with a little more patience a whole lot more versatile than just lines and boxes (from about as soon as you have smelting set up for stone)


Edit I can't spell Circuits, I hate my dyslexia. Oh well not changing it now.
