Re: Auto turn trains when placing them

You guys missed an obvious fact: The game won't do this when the track lacks signals or is signaled for bidirectional traffic. The only situation where this could guess wrong is when you build a bidirectional train on a monodirectional track. That seems like a rather rare situation.

Re: Version 0.15.40

I'm afraid that the limit isn't set by them. It's part of the windows version resource format.

Faking network latency for testing?

Is there an easy option to fake network latency to test how the game behaves on high RTT setups?

Preferably something that doesn't involve extra hardware or software. At most just having to run two copies of the game would be enough.

Re: Friday Facts #215 - Multithreading issues

Notwithstanding the interesting discussion about whether your analysis is right, I have a suggestion for achieving parallel thread update isolation at whatever granularity you need without moving data as entities move. Given N threads that will be updating in parallel some object type T, create N s...

[0.15.34] Missing tech dependencies

The tech tree is missing many dependencies. For example, all techs that require production science packs (the purple one) can be researched without having the tech for that pack (advanced material processing 2). This is but one of many examples of missing tech dependencies.

The train driving tutorial fails to check how the train stopped. If you run the train out of fuel it will stop too.

Correction: cars don't stop or cause damage when colliding with belts. They are just moved along the belt, just like when you run over them on foot.

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.15 + 0.16

That said why do people always go directly to mediocre DLCs/Microtransaction Crap? As if there haven't been other forms of marketing in the past... like for example fullscale Addons that expand the game in a larger, more meaningful way that justifies taking several bucks for it. So what is the diff...

[0.14.22] Wait until full vs removing empty wagon

So I was downsizing a mine. Part of this was removing a train wagon from a train. The train was set to wait until full inventory. The train had one locomotive, one full wagon and one empty wagon, in that order. It had a schedule of waiting until empty inventory at the dropoff and to wait until a ful...

Auto turn trains when placing them

Trains can be placed in one of two directions. Similarly, the train track is often signaled to allow passage in one of two directions. As such, I think it annoying when I end up placing a train on a directional track and it's in the wrong direction. So have the initial direction of the train match t...

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.15 + 0.16

I think they might be putting in too much in the same release. They should probably split it up a bit. Multithreading+bunch of minor optimization+nuclear+new science+combat balancing+hd sprites+fluid wagons and even more. Just one of those categories would be enough for a new release.
