Re: Why pathfinding is so bad?

So really you're asking why a tool that wasn't designed to be used a certain way doesn't work when used that way?

Re: Intriguing red dot

Usually in my games a small isolated red dot like that means I marked something for bot deconstruction and forgot about it.

Re: Enable achievement popups during cutscenes

How does this happen? What cutscenes are there, once the game is started?

Re: Games Like Factorio

I'd like to play Rim world. Is it difficult? It has a "peaceful" mode where you don't get raided. There are still a few minor threats (e.g. the occasional angry animal attack), but nothing that can't easily be dealt with, especially if you're playing in the default mode (three colonists s...

Re: Personal and/or locker chests

In principle this is an interesting idea, but clearly you've already anticipated the problems it would create, in terms of a player creating a personal chest that gets in the way and no one else being able to remove it or interact with it. But if another player can destroy or otherwise interact with...

Re: Make the corpse smaller and more ground-colored

Wait, but, now just hear me out... What if, when you die, in addition to your actual corpse, you also spawn around ten or so decoy corpses at various randomized points nearby? Y'know, just to make it a bit more of a challenge. And what happens if you go to collect your corpse and accidentally select...

Re: Make the corpse smaller and more ground-colored

A key item...of course! The key item should be a key! The key to the factory! When you die, the whole factory shuts down, and you have to get the key from your corpse to start it back up! It's genius!

Not an error. In this case "konstante" is an adverb. Es liefert konstant (beständig) Signale.

Should't it rather say, liefert konstant Signale?
Read it again. It doesn't say "konstante." It says "kostante."

Re: Make the corpse smaller and more ground-colored

Sweet suggestion. Maybe the solution could be a combination of making the corpse smaller, like say 1 pixel square, and requiring a very expensive piece of equipment to find it. Perhaps a pair of corpse-finder goggles, whose ingredients are 100 satellites. Per lens. And maybe make the corpse only vis...

Re: Ctrl-click should remove item from last to first order

When the player grabs out of a chest, it takes from the upper left first.

When an inserter grabs out of a chest, it takes from the lower right first.

I would assume this inconsistency is intentional. It would be interesting to hear from a developer what the rationale is.

Re: Constructions robots get "lost" in unpowered roboports

This issue basically only occurs when someone lays down enormous blueprints that include roboports and things don't happen to build in the right order.

It seems like a case of "Doctor, it hurts when I do this."

Re: Constructions robots get "lost" in unpowered roboports

Perhaps relevant from a different angle, Why do roboports start with power? If I recall correctly, it's just a convenience factor when you're laying out a bunch of them. An unpowered roboport doesn't show a connection to powered roboports. When you're trying to lay them out so they connect, this al...

Re: Smarter Armor Behavior on Quickbar

That happens also when you have different power armor, a bigger is exchanged with a smaller. True, but then it's your own fault for switching armor sizes. The inventory-spilling problem occurs when you're switching the same size armor, but inadvertently perform the wrong series of keys or clicks an...

One thing I am wondering about is if all versions of Factorio will be kept accessible.

Including a Krastorio legacy map on 1...

Re: Don't add undergrounds when click-dragging belts across structures marked for deconstruction

The simplest solution that is clearly better than the status quo is: do everything the same except don't place the undergrounds. As it is, I have to remove undergrounds and fill some gaps in the belts to get the outcome I originally wanted. This way, I only fill some gaps in the belts. The simplest...

I personally don't want to see Factorio being a 100GB game like World of Warcraft or Call of Duty. If I had the option not to install a 20GB DLC that would be nice.
On my machine, excluding mods and saves, the Factorio 1.1 folder is less than 2 GB.

I think your fears are unfounded.

I don't think the comment was intended to be snarky. Searching the mods for "productivity" mostly finds stuff about productivity modules, but searching for "statistics" turned up a couple of things that might be helpful: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/statorio https://mods.factori...
