Re: Belt speeds

Considering the wide range of item crafting times and the multipliers on crafting speed in the machines, I'm not sure the factorisation of the belt speed in items/s matters much. Slowing down yellow and red in order to make 1 blue = 2 red without problems with high-speed belts might be an idea thou...

Re: Tiered difficulty for nests

Grenade damage is almost irrelevant to their usefulness. Sure, its 35 base damage, but there are two factors. Splash, meaning it doesn't just hit that one big biter in 6 seconds, but rather all 10 of them, plus all the non big-biters. Sure, you have to throw a bunch, but you can throw around 2/secon...

IIRC Bob's Enemies now has some spawners tiered that way ?
Yes, but there is no distribution change. The super spawners are distributed the same (Or so it seemed) as normal spawners.

Re: Tiered difficulty for nests

Since you can set what a specific nest type spawns (biter/spitter) if you override how new nests are created you can probably tier it that way. But I don't really have an approach on how to adjust it as of yet. Not sure if pollution per biter spawn is on the biter or the spawner, but if the spawner,...

Re: Trash \ Water Pollution New Challanges

Reminds me of Super Energy Apocalypse Recycled.

And as long as you can't just put it in chests then shoot the chests, this seems like it could be interesting.

Re: [MOD 0.17.x] Modular Armor Revamp

Huh. Graphics is the last think I was thinking about. Mainly it was just that if everything is 2x2, and the grid is a multiple of 2x2, cutting both to multiples of 1x1 would have no effect, except that you could no longer place stuff in odd positions, wasting time fixing it. But yea, I'll drop that....

Alright. I made a standalone armor size revamp mod, and am considered how much of this mod I am just going to throw out in general. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/modular-armor-resize The whole thing is just overly complicated, and most of the stuff it was intended to resolve is now either vanilla, o...

Re: Worth it or not?

The game is very freeform, so if you want structure, concrete goals to work towards, you have to provide them yourself. Generally you have a few innate ones, but the sheer amount of options, and lack of direction can be problematic. In other words, the demo/tutorial, old and new, neither are really ...

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

Why are you trying to idiotproof Factorio? The game itself needs a certain level of mental dexterity, I do not think you need to go to such extreme level to prevent mixups. Because unlike most other systems, belts or so on, it is almost trivial to accidently contaminate your entire pipe system and ...

Re: Lost mods!!

If you have the save game, you should be able to, in game, sync mods with save. If that doesn't work, I can't really say anything aside from, load all the mods you think you had, load the game (backup save first, naturally) and see if anything breaks. If it does, try to figure out what might have be...

You know what really bugs me about those remains? The car. It rotated like 30 degrees, and somehow that is just so wrong. I don't know why it bothers me so much.

It is clearly inspired by Factorio, but just from seeing the list of basic resources, it's just a clone. That said, given there are already games with similar mechanics, such as "FortressCraft Evolved", "Factory Idle", "Mindustry", and the devs explicitly approved of &q...

Re: [0.17.2] Wall texture doesn't update when cliff gets destroyed

I just have to wonder, how computationally expensive is it to make cliff explosions force redrawing in a small area around them? Its not like they happen constantly.

I had seen it, or something like it before. And I went and searched for "Factotio Power Network Mod" and a bunch of synonyms til I found it. There might be another, but I couldn't find one.

This mod apperently does it somehow. No clue beyond that. It probably uses power interfaces and excessive scripting.

Re: Belt speeds

I would point out that 13.33 doesn't subdivide evenly either.

But yes, I could get behind those changes, if only because doubling speed per tier feels better. I use calculators for everything anyway after all.
