It was mentioned even in the first "linux sever" thread.
I am not sure about any concrete public anoucements, though.

Map storage servers are still a good idea. It's just "game servers" that make little sense.

Re: Friday Facts #88 - Combinators

It looks truly awesome, I like both the chosen style of the logic machines and the inner works.

Aren't the shadows on the screenshots odd?

My take on wiring mess:
What about some kind of a short "one-wire stand" pole for organizing free-lying CCnet cabling?

Re: Friday Facts #88 - Combinators

I'd say anything that requires more than 5-10 elements to be connected together is already too complex for mass usage and makes me ask myself "Can't this be done in any easier way?" . I hope that will be possible to do as a mod. For me it seems perfect as it is. I hate stuff where either ...

Re: Friday Facts #85 - Sales Stats

I would have to say that an EPIC new trailer should be made for the steam release . Why? Because they do so in the AAA industry? Maybe it would be better to be honest, not going too far from what players could really achieve in the game. I haven't thought this through. An up-to-date trailer would b...

Re: Connect train stops to circuit networks

It appears I started something here... The current circuit network can do binary logic. Basically the existence of an item means 1, the lack of an item means 0. Now I don't want to spoil Friday facts by telling you all the details, but the new "combinators" can be combined in many differe...

Re: Friday Facts #84 The wedding day preprations

@kovarex
How did you deal with accumulators that reside in more networks at once?
Do you "merge" only those in the same networks & same charge?
Or do you simply ignore them for generally not being worth it?

Re: Train stuck at gate

Thanks for the report, that could be a nasty surprise if a gate gets destroyed and then auto-replaced. EDIT: Now I see it was moved to "Duplicates". I guess it's known to the moderators then. What happens if you set the train to automatic and tell it to go somewhere? Will it break the gate...

Re: Split Directions

IMHO Basically - you usually don't want to want to split lanes. Seriously, try to plan your factory without doing a full lane split. Note that the underground belts are used as "lane blockers", which can be used separately to extract one lane from a belt. Using that instead of doing the fu...

Re: Spam posts in general discussion.

I disagree. This thread is a good idea. RSS readers are usually built NOT to forget items that disappear. That's a good thing, because the factorio RSS feeds can provide only limited amount of items. Unfortunately it also means that a) I have to go through those posts too, it's not just the ssilk/mo...

Not functioning anymore, but still a very nice curiosity and the only preserved system of this type in the world. They have also the real-life L...

Seems to me that we could really use a separate "group" for these "technical marvels" type posts. I had hard time finding this one again. Some get posted only in the release / FFF threads and get lost eventually. (i.e. https://forums.factorio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=87...

Re: Friday Facts #81 Chain signals

The functionality is allright.

The thing I'm worried about is the representation of such train signal.
Having trains pass red light is just as odd as stopping on a green one.
Also I expect trouble figuring out which exit=regular signal is responsible for the train stopping.

Re: Friday Facts #81 Chain signals

So the only difference is that these chain signals will chain only to the exit the train wants whereas openTTD's pre-signals let the train go through the first available green exit? Probably yes, and some other smaller differences. So, I'll easily get a situation, where one train is allowed to pass...

Re: not a bug, but something a little bit annoying

Yeah,
turn your story into a proper suggestion / bug report
and get a meaningful title saying what's this all about.

words that might help you:

Re: Forum layout

Hint: Your device still might have a key labeled "home" (usually round PgUp, PgDown, Delete..)
That key will return you to the top of the page, where the path thingy is.

Opening posts in a new tab and then closing the tab to "return" also works.
