Re: Friday Facts #214 - Concrete rendering

I cannot understand the others - I LOVE THE NEW CONCRETE. Truly. It's a masterpiece.

All I want for Christmas is .16!

Re: Friday Facts #212 - The GUI update (Part 1)

I really like the transparency. Some do, some don't. Many games have a slider for transparency adjustment... so that would satisfy both sides.

Can't believe the amount of comments on the text contrast though. Calm down everyone, they are still working on it. :D

Re: Friday Facts #212 - The GUI update (Part 1)

Since you are reworking the train coloring window I would like to request that you add the ability to color the train based on an item's color (i.e. select a red science pot and the train's color is set to red, green science pot changes to green... etc) I have wanted my trains to be the color of it...

Re: Vehicle Steering Suggestion

Yeah, vehicle snap is awesome. Use that bad boy already. A lot of flight simulators offer an "invert Y axis" option. Why not program in an option when driving South on the X asix? Don't quite know how that would affect steering going East and West though... :) I mean, smashing into trees c...

Steer your vehicle with the mouse.

Hello Dev's! Driving north is fun. Driving any other direction feels backwards (as it is...south anyway) Why not steer the vehicle with your mouse? Hold down the left button and drag your mouse around the screen. Wherever the cursor is, that's where you'll go. "W" would still control the s...

Why is there a 6 on the lamp ? Is it modifiable ? (would work like a lamp with a decal on top of it to indicate a value)
This is a code from the developer. The 6 stands for October 6th, which is the next FFF, which they will announce the release of .16.

Re: Friday Facts #209 - Optimisation is a way of life

I too can not get enough of these optimizations! :D I love reading about them, and love playing with them even more. The electric network and smoke improvements are really nice as those are two that I personally noticed getting a bit high as well. In regards to the bots. I would say that making the...

Wire your own power poles..

Don't know if this has already been discussed. Sincerest apologies if so. The ability to "uncheck" power pole wiring. It would be nice to run some blank power poles and then run copper for power. Simply a cosmetic thing - it would be nice to put down a power pole and have it "not"...

Thank you! I was hooking the wire to a logistic chest. I'll give it a shot.

Help with train stops and the logistic network

Hello all I've gone and set up a robot based unloading station for my trains. As it stands now, trains pull up, inserters unload into active provider chests and the contents are moved into nearby logistic chests. However, the trains will keep doing this forever (or until I run out of ore...). What I...

Looking at this generated map - does this mean we will end up with elevated terrain? Very exciting if so. Hill, mountains, valleys!! :) I think you should read it again. It is not to have elevated terrain in the game, just to show how terrain is generated. I see it now. "added height shading&q...

Re: Ability to edit scenario or map conditions

I would imagine it might be something really simple to implement. When you save a game, it gives you info like map saves, mods, version, etc. If it showed here some simple map statistics - well that would be just lovely.

Re: power visualisation change

You have the satisfaction meter when you click on a power pole. And that is for the electric network to which the pole you have clicked on belongs. You can test it for yourself : plonk down a power pole far from any power source, and click on it : you'll have information that you produce 0, and con...

Re: power visualisation change

That would not be doable : You may have as many separated electric networks as you wish. And showing overall power availability would be terribly misleading : imagine all of your networks but one short of power, and the only one excedentary overwhelmingly excedentary. Overall, you'd produce enough ...

Re: power visualisation change

Even a simple bar under the minimap that shows power available - when the bar reaches zero, you're out of power. Doesn't even have to be labeled. You could always glance at the minimap window without clicking on a power pole at all. Or a percentage bar - 50% used, 75% used. 100% used. A glance is fa...
