Re: 0.16 Map generation Feedback

I don't like the new map gen. I liked to play in a map with large body of water and large landmass now it's impossible to have. I tried for 2 hours to get a good map, tried a few settings and allways get same result. water : very low & very large = water world with small corridor of land get worst a...

Re: Pause multiplayer game for first logon

A big guest is about simplicity and because internet is unreliable. What happens when you are not alone to connect at the same time? There is no guarante the first to connect to the server will be the first to finish downloading the game! Then you'll need an "ignition" command to let know that you h...

Re: [0.15.31]mod nuclear train transport

The fuel tab doesn't show if you're not within range of the train to interact with it. That part is working correctly. It's good, so the train move faster than you while inside? The faster the train goes farther he goes from middle of the screen and at some point out of range. --- I did more test o...

If all you want is a large storage yard, train stacker with signal should do the trick.

Re: Disable dense forest starting zone

Regenerate the map a few times until you find one you like? At least it keeps any custom settings, so this is quick to do. It's allready something I do. With v0.15 it take triple the number of attempts to find a good map as it's no longer the case of having all required ressource near the start poi...

Disable dense forest starting zone

Would be nice to have option to allow or not having dense forest in the starting area. It's annoying and a waste of time to cut tree to have access to ressource under it. Since v0.15 forest are everywhere and dense forest have high tendency to be over ressource. The usefullness of tree are quickly o...

Re: Equipment maintainance

The idea seem more tedious than challenging. Nothing challenging in micro-managing everything in a game untill you reach robot. After robot nothing difficult in that, at most it's another way of ressource sink. In my opinion. Something similar exist in mod Wear and Tear : https://mods.factorio.com/m...

Re: Do not pause game when looking at research in single player

Then load your game into multiplayer mode. Unset visibility public and set a password. You will trick the game you are not in singleplayer and the game will not stop when you open research panel.

Re: [SERVER] Protection vs Griefer

You mix together the multiplayers game ( private and public ). Still what I said is valid private game should not suffer from public game. I did not say it's impossible.

Re: Grief tracking: Bare ground reports item removal

With factorio this can take gigantic size fast. Let assume each line in database take only 20 bytes and we blueprint a 1000x1000 tiles. With only one click I'll write 1 000 000 lines that take 20 MB. I'll just have to delete the same blueprint I just created to double that amount in less than 1min. ...

Re: Set keyboard focus for constant value input

+1 With constant combinator after you choose an item the focus should be set automaticaly on the value text. Then we can directly enter the value we want with numpad or use the dragNdrop scroll. One less click is QoL.

More seriously I think you should think about using blueprint to copy combinator. I'm sure DaveMcW didn't input one by one every combinator in his movie player : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgfwwqwxdxY DaveMcW didn't use blueprints, he used a script (available on github) to convert the movie fi...

Currently in game

- Shift+Right click ( Copy ) on that combinator
- Shift+Left click ( Paste ) on every other combinator

Re: [SERVER] Protection vs Griefer

You can also simply reduce the delay between saves like 10 min and rotate over 6 files saves. You'll be able to roll back up to 1 hour at 10 min interval.
