Thanks for the report. As others have said: that's working as intended. The fast inserters aren't disappearing - they're going into your inventory.
It would be super sweet if they teleported onto the new underground belt instead of going into your inventory :)

Re: play now or wait? (stopped 2 years ago)

No, there's still (at least!) 0.18 with the finished campaign, maybe even more. Ooh that would be awesome to get more "new campaign" - I thought the NPE released with .17 was that but it's... well, a little lacking, and really shows off a totally different Factorio than the one most of us...

Re: play now or wait? (stopped 2 years ago)

AFAIK the game is effectively feature-complete - I wouldn't expect anything significant to change with version 1.0 at this point. Mostly just bug fixes, possibly a few balance changes, but if I understand correctly 0.17 is basically going to become 1.0 once it's stable.

Re: Effect Transmission Manufacturing

Are you looking for an item called "effect transmission"? The item in your crafting menu is called a "beacon" (I assume - I haven't gotten that far in .17, but I don't think it's changed.)

Re: blue and yellow assembler are worse than grey

Hi

Looking at assemblers it appears that yellow assemblers are the best.

Grey:
speed 0.5

Blue:
speed 0.75

Yellow:
speed 1.25

so yellow assembler are clearly the best.

Re: [0.17.14] circular belt loop "backs up" (items stop) when full

Interesting. Sushi belt setups aren't all that common, but this could make them a bit trickier to get stable.

Re: A Deeper Look into Combat Robotics

I used destroyers back in... I dunno, 0.14? Back when the flamethrower was super OP and the PLD was worse than a tickle cannon. I had a base big enough that the cost of building the robots was insignificant, and they added enough DPS to be helpful when clearing big nests. Haven't touched them since.

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

Because, as mentioned above, we are all total nerds, can you give us some insight into what the deterministic order is based on? Train ID or most/least recently built? X/Y coordinates? I'd rather not. It's not a simple "this line of code controls it" but the entire logic around updating t...

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

Thanks for the report however this is working as intended: trains do not follow "first in, first out" logic when waiting at rail signals. They simply operate in what ever order the train(s) are updated where that order is deterministic. Because, as mentioned above, we are all total nerds,...

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

Instead of a parking bay, consider an intersection where two tracks combine into one. Imagine a never-ending stream of trains is coming in on each track. If priority is given to whichever train has been waiting the longest, the two input tracks will alternate, meaning the streams of trains will both...

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

Sounds a whole lot like not a bug. If you want the trains to "respect the order they arrived", you'll have to do it using circuit network. Of course it should respect the order they arrive. What else would it respect? I would say the most natural choice would be whichever train is closest...

Also... I broke the Introduction so it is not able to be completed due to 1000's of bugs when you have no turrets. A hotfix is on the way.
Is this new? The first time I went through the intro, I got massively overrun by 1000's of bugs because I had virtually no turrets :lol:

New players - share your tutorial / campaign experience

There are many, many discussions about the new 0.17 tutorial / campaign. As far as I can tell, virtually all of them come from veterans. But, this is supposed to be the "new player experience", and yet, there are very few stories from new players! Are you a new player ? Is the new tutorial...

Re: Friday Facts #284 - 0.17 experimental

Is it normal to start at 75% UI scaling in my 1366x768 laptop screen? Everything was tiny! Honestly, my first impression on loading 0.17 was "wow, this looks terrible compared to 0.16". I'm glad I eventually found the UI scaling so it didn't hurt my eyes so much! Maybe defaulting to 75% i...

Campaign thoughts: 1) I don't like the "gather some of your equipment and escape east". I wound up picking up my whole base at that point (I wasn't sure if I would keep my inventory or not), and I'm really glad I did... it would have been really unfortunate not to. There's probably a way t...
