[0.14.5 (and .4)] [Rseding91] Segfault on game load (vehicle grids)

When loading a savegame, with a bunch of mods, (and Electric Vehicles disabled) I get a segfault. I was going to post the mod list, core dump, save file, etc. etc. -- but this stack trace (and some nicely self-documenting code) makes it pretty clear #0 TargeterBase::operator=(Targetable*) () at /tmp...

Re: Rotating belt.

I mean -- the game-state is incremented by the CPU, so stopping animations would technically cut down on load... but it's entirely negligible. Sorry, such "Factorio coding" is only a good idea for very simple things. In my opinion we need some kind of "workshop" in the game to fa...

Re: [MOD 0.12.33+] Sane Concrete

So, just as a bit of context, the original recipe already makes sense. The iron ore isn't there for rebar -- it's there because that's a valid way to make cement. For example, [pulled from wikipedia], Siliceous (ASTM C618 Class F) Fly Ash-based cement is 11% Iron Oxide -- so having the recipe includ...

Re: Rotating belt.

It appears that your actual proposal is "splitters should search down their outputs to attempt to find loops, and if one is found, that input should be given priority." See, what you have looks like a loop made of belts, but it's not -- the splitter fundamentally changes it. In the basic c...

Re: Accumulator animation

Just checking -- is your accumulator loading and charging itself choppy or smooth? Try an experiment where you have, say, a solar panel, accumulator, and light on a separate network (one unconnected power pole). It should smoothly charge during the day and smoothly discharge at night. The only times...

Re: How do I get Golem achievement?

i tried it in lots of different ways, but it seems to stay at 100, either I die by the tank/train or it doesn't do more than 100 dmg. I removed my armor, tried standing on the track with my car/tank,.. You'll need to use modular armor (or better), with at least five mk1 or two mk2 shields -- more m...

Re: Circuit network features for 0.14

Perhaps your buffered assembler would work nicely as an upgraded (possibly a 4x4, depending on how nice it is?) variant on the regular assembler. It's a somewhat unusual item, and has additional complexity to using, in comparison to the regular one. Such things would, however, potentially also fix a...

Re: Electric energy

Nuclear waste simply can not be put back into the cycle. You already used up whatever useful material was in the fuel rods, so spent rods mostly contain nuclear material that has radioactivity so low it can't be used as nuclear fuel, which also means it'll have insanely long half-life -thousands of...

Re: Rented Server Auto-save

Just checking, are you sure it's the server doing the auto-save, and not the clients? This might be outdated and not relevant any more (as of 0.13), but at least it used to be that clients had an independent autosave setting for their local save. That meant that all clients also needed to have their...

Re: [MOD 0.13] HandyHands - AutoHandcrafting - v1.1.0 hotconfig

With only two hotkeys -- harder. It would be easier with four, for 'coarse' and 'fine' (i/k and shift-i/k, for example). You could use a discretized logarithm pattern -- human-friendly multiples of things. For example, rather than powers of two, you can split it again to get powers of sqrt(2), but r...

Re: [MOD 0.13] HandyHands - AutoHandcrafting - v1.1.0 hotconfig

Could you order by percentage of order filled, rather than by stack size? Possibly reverting to stacks if the request is more than one? So, score = (number_available)/min(number_requested, stack_size), lowest score wins. Also, it looks like popular demand is for a second set of adjusted hotkeys for ...

I originally posted this on the mod portal, but it is a sub-par discussion space at the moment (lack of notifications), so I'm reposting it here -- Comment before 1.1.0 I tried this mod out, and overall really liked it. However, I found that in most cases it would make every item used take an extra ...

Re: Fight

I think also that Factorio without enemies is boring and I do not like suggestions that play peaceful if I do not want harder enemies. But I think that fighting should not have too significant role and eventually I want to automatize it (like everything). I think that current difficulty and work le...

Re: Train Network Help "No Path"

If your drawing is correct, your signals are on the wrong side. If your train is going "up", the signals for it need to be on the right side, as does the station. As posted further up, if you want to go back down the same track, you will need a signal on the left as well. Note: an [automat...

Re: Give mods an option to not disable achievements

It's possible to use cryptography to verify that a mod hasn't been tampered with. Whether the developers want to implement this is another matter... Pretty sure that goes against most everything that the game devs appear to stand for in terms of the game being open. Strictly speaking, I'm pretty su...

Re: "Upgrade" yellow belts to yellow-splitters

I tested it just now with a small mod that put the splitter into the transport-belt fast replaceable group, but the splitter stayed red when trying to build it over a transport belt. If I had to guess, perhaps it's because they weren't in the same place? (given that they're different sizes, it may ...

Re: Remove or Miniaturize Circuit Networks

My thoughts on the matter -- 1. IMO, while space is technically unlimited, there is an opportunity cost to it. One has to clear the space, it takes time to walk by it, and if you want to build in the middle of something else, you need to move stuff. Given that I don't see a compelling need to keep t...

Re: Robot prioritisation of requests for same resource

I believe that the canonical (if somewhat more expensive in terms of flat resources) solution is by programming the inserters. You use the requester chest as normal, but let it fill up to your specified level. Then, you configure the inserter going from chest to <use> to be on the logistic network, ...

Your personal roboports launch bots that only interact with your inventory. Your static roboports launch bots that only interact with the logistics inventory. They do not mix. It sounds like the problem is that you're deconstructing things, which queues the bots to come deconstruct them. However, no...
