Re: Give offshore pump an output arrow

Steam engines also don't have an input arrow, which might be why many new players wonder why their steam engines aren't working when they do this: https://i.imgur.com/Kdjb4Ml.jpg https://imgur.com/Kdjb4Ml (from https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comments/4d8e5r/steam_engines_not_generating_power_desp...

Will that make it impossible to regenerate resources in a different configuration?

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

Hey, is there an easy way to magnify all pollution produced (while proportionally reducing the effect it has on evolution level) so the red cloud reaches more nests and agitates more biters? Partially because there's less nests in the same area with RSO so it becomes too easy to clear out everything...

"Not enough construction robots" alert should be silent

It's nice that the "turrets engaged with enemy" alert doesn't cause any sound since it's not something that needs immediate attention, compared to structures taking damage (which stops needing your attention once you have construction bots but I digress). Construction robots not having the...

It'll use the changed settings from then on out, but anything that's already generated will be unchanged.

Re: Electric energy

While a pollution-free nuclear reactor makes sense from a realism perspective, I don't think it fits that late-game energy generation is unavoidably green. Like, it should be an option, but not the best option unless you're specifically going for low pollution, and currently solar is the best for ev...

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

Recently I've been playing a game with halved starting resources and most importantly larger chunk size (11), causing everything to be more spread out and increase in richness slower. http://i.imgur.com/dU4IaXC.jpg It's not perfect, had to set nest chance to 1 to get a decent fight, and the starting...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Time Lapse Mod

Here's another RSO game timelapse: https://gfycat.com/DigitalShamefulChafer
Don't expect to continue that one as it just got too frustrating with the walls not leaving space and resupplying the turrets.

Re: Electric energy

I feel like what's needed most is another source of infinite energy, but one that pollutes, so you're choosing between green power or cheap power. There's oil, but you need that for so much other stuff, and it still uses boilers+steam engines, which are better than solar panels but still not very co...

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

I can't say I relate to all this talk about green science tier being mostly waiting after it's set up, but I think that's because of RSO and needing to scout with my car and set up train lines. So, if you're going to do something similar with default resources being richer further out, it might not ...

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

My suggestions: - Generate some ore garbage when smelting , this is a subproduct (like with oil) that you must handle (maybe you have to store or you can dump in the ground creating pollution), later in the game you could start smelting that garbage ore (like with plutonium). - Create a deep mining...

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

I'm all for vanillafied RSO, but I don't see how the dirty ore mechanic would really help with the issue of moving drills being too fiddly; I'd sooner expect to see something like Mining bots. I mean dirty ore sounds like it might be an interesting and fun logistics challenge, but it's not in itself...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Time Lapse Mod

To change the settings, you need to open the mod's folder and edit config.lua
The folder it saves screenshots in can be changed there, too, though I believe it has to be under the "script-output" folder, which is right next to the "mods" folder.

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

Wonderful! I also discovered something cool; since you can set RSO to override spawning mechanics entirely, setting Starting Area to none will let you spawn in a world with none of those annoying puddles taking up space, while still spawning enemies at a reasonable distance from you and guaranteeing...

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

Scouting with a car works fine, it's just that if I were to bump up biter frequency and such settings high enough that defence would be more like a vanilla game it'd also make scouting as hard as in vanilla, so it's either the one problem or the other.

Re: [0.12.x] RSO Discussion thread

Is there some way to tweak biter spawning so there's more closer to you, but without making them so frequent further out that you can't scout with your car? I'd like walls and turrets to be more necessary...
Smaller starting area kinda helps, but that also means resource patches spawn much closer.
