Re: Friday Facts #199 - The story of tile transitions

Instead of the 2 x 2 grids as suggested. How about .5 x .5 grids for water. I'm not too familiar with how the water generation techniques work. But you would then only need to make textures for, the water tiles, corners, and edges.

Re: Friday Facts #198 - Rail segment visualisation

Somebody beat me to the highlighting rails suggestion already. But how about this. The ends of the blocks have lines. And the color that the rails are highlighted is based on the signal (green red yellow blue). Won't look like a clowny at all when there are no trains. And it would be much easier to ...

Re: Lazy Bastard Achievement - No hand crafting challenge

I did this one a long time ago with exactly 111. It was on a semi public server meaning the password was obtainable but hard to get. The last like 5 crafts was something like pipe. Almost had to rollback. I didn't really enjoy this achievement that much. Although its the only time i ever launched a ...

I like this idea. But people are going to find that spot where the images are taken. And fill it with dongs.

Re: Allow Trains to select their own stop.

You would use it when you want to have a more efficient train system. Like having trains that only go to an outpost when needed. Or have a dedicated refuel point.

Allow Trains to select their own stop.

TL;DR Trains can decide where to go. What ? It would be cool if trains could set their own stops by circuit. I feel like with the functionality within trains it wouldn't be too much of a jump. Like using the same and or logic you can say that if the train has iron ore in it or something that it goe...

Re: Are pumps supposed to be this fast?

3 pumps are capable of emptying a fluid wagon in under 4 seconds, so that rate is likely to be accurate but once you add even one piece of pipe between the pump and any destination, the fluid transfer speed drops drastically. So hooking 10 offshore pumps to 1 such pump won't do you any good, as the...

Are pumps supposed to be this fast?

Very well could just not be a bug. But 12000 fluid per second sounds awfully fast considering an offshore is only 1200/s. It unloads a tank in less than a second! When I saw it in the description I thought it was a typo. I want to know if this is a bug before I start hooking up 10 offshores to a cha...

Show Man hours of factory.

*Not Important* Basically I think it would be cool to see the total amount of time the factory has been crafting for. Like basically it takes the crafting time of each item and then multipies it by the number of items shown in the production menu. Im picturing a thing with the time icon in the produ...

Noob's 2D Display (.6hz)

I've seen this obsession with making displays. Either 7seg or perhaps even the scrolling signs. I see them as too complicated and using too many signals. Mine is simple. Allows for 2D and theretically could support color on only one axis. But I've been too lazy to implement. The real claim to fame i...

Re: Unofficial Factorio Troll and Griefer Database (FTGD)

It seems the biggest problem here is a lack of admins. People really need to be more lax about promoting players. Perhaps someone should bug the devs to add a mod rank which can only do mod commands to make it easier to promote people you don't necessarily trust.
