Finding items in the inventory the easy way

I was just searching my inventory for a specific (mod) item again when this idea came to my mind: How about adding a simple highlight/flashy border/whatever you deem fit to the item in the inventory/belt when the player has his mouse cursor over it's matching counterpart in the crafting selection? A...

Re: [MOD 0.8.x] Treefarm v0.8.3

As of Factorio 0.8.5: Germlings have problems growing on some kinds of terrain. Looking at the calcTreeEfficiency(), it seems that it only checks for basic terrain type without subtypes such as grass-dry. Trees can spawn on water if a field covers it Cokeries display no power even when powered and ...

Re: Display range for turrets

Necroing this topic because I had the same Idea just about now. Some way to see the turret shooting range (mouse-over maybe?) would be really nice and would help in finding dead spots in the defense grid.

Re: [MOD 0.8.x] Industrio V0.3.3 - Now with 100% less bugs !

Found a minor graphical glitch in the crafting menu:
The Icon representing the Industrio category only shows a tiny black triangle. It's just a guess but I think the graphic itself is getting truncated there.

Re: Terrain Segmentation

I've been messing with the terrain generator a bit and terrain segmentation seems to be the amount of variation between each type of terrain. Setting it to a very low value will make, for example, lakes extremely huge. Higher values try to vary and mix terrain types more but make the landscape look ...

Re: New, Separate design. Fill free to comment

I really like the cleanliness of the layout and the expandability. Everything is modular and could be easily duplicated for higher productivity. Bonus points for the Carport :D But I hate the complete dependency on logistics robots. Guess I just don't like them because they pretty much feel like che...

Re: Forcefields

I'm not completely sure, but kovarex mentioned that "Walls" are already planned but not yet in the game.
Oh and there is already a mod that show you the time remaining until the next wave of attackers comes running. I think it's linked in the modding subsection.

Re: Fuses

I can already see my long line of lasertowers blowing all fuses in a square kilometer around them. But I agree, it would be great to be able to define an area that's vital and would get priority over other areas, like the inserters for the burners and the whole stuff actually needed to not spiral do...

Re: What's the point?

I've felt the same thing with the alpha. But that's pretty much the same "problem" you're facing with every sandbox game: You make your own goals or get bored. Right now there isn't much to do in the game mainly because it's still highly incomplete. I'm pretty sure there will be a full campaign and ...

Re: Factories with built-in conveyor belts

I can't see a reason this wouldn't at least assemble one product and then wait for more room. The whole idea behind this is to enable the factories to directly feed the ...

Re: [Idea] Crates

While I do like the idea, at the same time I don't. I fear it would make the game "too easy". Part of the charm is to manage stuff like this, in my opinion. I'd say let's just keep our nifty UFO's and move on! :) I think kovarex commented on the "chest on belt" thing with the same reaction stating ...

Factories with built-in conveyor belts

I was monitoring my factories being busy for the greater good and thought "Why do they have an entrance/exit at the bottom/southern wall but don't use it?" Thinking of something like a car factory with a permanently moving belt or monorail it would make sense that the inserters take the materials fr...

Or just leaving the chest out of the loop at all. ;)
Conveyor belts already "store" items anyways.
