Re: Friday facts #151 - The plans for 0.14

Any word in adding a few more resources besides whatever is used for nuclear fuel? such as sand and aluminium as discussed here?

Re: [0.13.13] Watch your Step still not working

At this point I'm wondering if this achievement is worth all the trouble...

Re: Version 0.13.12

headless bug on ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS as well. it's starting to look like all linux systems are affected? - in which case this is the second unplayable linux version within a short time (0.13.12 and 0.13.10) - maybe some more linux tests are in order? Works fine in Ubuntu. Seems to be an issue with th...

You'll need to plug in the laptop :)
It doesn't seem like a good trade off though?

Re: [0.13.10] - Some controls are not cross-compatible

The problem is not the keys assigned, but rather the definition of the keys assigned by the system. What I did was just add another issue of trying to have the same key configuration across OSes, the definitions are different and the assignments also can be different. Mapping Enter to Return and vi...

Re: [0.13.10] - Some controls are not cross-compatible

The controls shouldn't be cross-compatible, you can't assume that keys that are available in one OS will be in the rest. For example, the ALT key in the majority of Linuxes is used for drag an application's window, in Ubuntu ALT brings its HUD up, so you have to bind it to something else. Factorio s...

Re: Heat Factor - A balacing idea to solar and accumulators

Solar panels will be a bit cooler in the sun because they're turning solar energy into electricity. That electricity can go elsewhere to be eventually turned into heat (thanks thermodynamics!). No physical laws are being broken. The heat still eventually happens, just somewhere else. Even trees wil...

I presume the devs did their homework and got familiar with those laws before discarding the method because is not scalable. Solving tha...

I think I'm misunderstanding migrating. For you, does "migrating" and "spawn a new base somewhere near another base" mean exactly the same thing? I don't actually know how it used to work. I'm fairly new (I don't even have triple digit hours into the game yet!) and currently my ...

Re: Simple AI for enemies.

They could check for example number of turrets or combat robots of player's equipment in area vs their own strength. That would give possibility to get (limited and temporary) peace by building very strong defenses and get rid of annoying practically false alarms of weak attacks. Perhaps the pathfi...

With steam sales is kind of hard to justify piracy these days, if you can't buy it just wait for the sale and get it with a discount.
