Re: Version 0.18.17

If it is cut off, `tar tf example.tar.xz` (where "tf" means "test file", it really isn't as hard as people make it out :P ) will give a warning. Attempting extraction of a cut-off archive will exit with a non-zero exit status and print a warning as well, probably indicating eithe...

If I understood this correctly in the past, it means that HTML file has been modified by you or something else. As far as I know, the only way to fix it is to just download the whole game again instead of only the differential patch.

Re: Friday Facts #338 - The (real) Character GUI

(But for real, Spidertron is not coming in 1.0 nor before) Has this been decided officially by Wube or is this just an expectation for now? - We don't know what exactly would be the use for the spidertron. The original idea was it would be a late game vehicle, with almost unrestricted movement. Tha...

Re: Friday Facts #338 - The (real) Character GUI

Having it be delayed after 1.0 isn't optimal. But it surely does not make 1.0 "overwhelmingly disappointing". I am sure, players can wait a little longer until it is well polished. No pressure. Of course, but the point of a 1.0 version is that it is feature-complete. If it's not in 1.0, i...

Re: Friday Facts #120 - Spidertron

Re: Friday Facts #338 - The (real) Character GUI

First thing I thought of when seeing the character tabs: the tabs hide all the features behind extra clicks. If I just quickly want to grab ammo from my gun to put in a gun turret (when attacking in very early game), do I have to open the inventory and click to the character tab before being able to...

Re: Version 0.18.9

Added big scorch mark which is now used by atomic rocket and nuclear reactor meltdown . There can be a meltdown in vanilla? :o Reactors at max temperature (>900 C) explode like atomic bombs if destroyed. Great for nuclear mines, but there is no real meltdown mechanic implemented in Vanilla. :shock:...

Re: Friday Facts #325 - New Explosions and Particles

Since you don't have 3d models but 2d sprites (if I'm not mistaken), it's not possible to know which areas/pixels are reacha...

Re: Headless server command-line pause

Seconded, I'd like to be able to pause when I fail at becoming an admin at my own server and someone is taking forever to catch up (then I pause to let them get in)

I guess a workaround is setting the speed very low

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

As someone continuously struggling with performance issues (I like optimizing things in megabases, not the manual work in the beginning), I am very much looking forward to these optimizations :D

The sounds, I dunno, they sound kinda weird to me. Not yet sure if that's just because it's new.

Hi, will there be a t-shirt with printed factorio base?
I remember some time ago you had this big banner https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blo ... 9-img3.jpg
It would be great to have a t-shirt with this huge base printed on it.
I would love this too!

And taking into account that sizes are different in between countries, could you post the length between shoulders as a refference. Hmm, doesn't it show this for you? Or is the "A" measurement not what you're looking for? https://snipboard.io/28rC03.jpg (This particular screenshot is from...

Re: Version 0.17.47

I still have 0.17.54 for Linux in case that helps anyone, that might be compatible with the modpack for 0.17.47. (Of course, I would require some proof of ownership of the game, I'm not offering warez here.)

I have 5 meteor defense installations. Rarely get a meteor strike that hurts anything. If that helps.
I guess it confirms that it is a bug and that a few meteor defense installations should usually do the trick, but for some reason not in my save.
