Re: Will system requirements be lowered?

Want to mention here, that turning up the number of threads to more than two helps also with the roboport highlights. Increasing the number of threads above 2 won't help in OP's case as his CPU doesen't have support for Hyperthreading technology so no virual cores. This means that his CPU can only ...

Re: Multiple research with multiple buildings

If you are extending the default reserch lab entity then I must say that every research lab needs to have all the required incgredient types in its storeage (in your case research pack and iron plate). I also have to disapoint you on the fact that currently game doesent support of researching multip...

Re: learning AI

I actually had similar idea in the past, before the polution system was even implemented, but I have never shared it since as a programmer myself I wanted to do some testing to see if it would work as I imagine. But once polution was implemented abandoned the idea since it is not compatible with pol...

Re: Train timer count down

This is the feature I would definitly want to get implemented. You won't belive how many times I got run ower by the train that just started from the station. Becouse of that now I always wait for train to start before crossing the rails near train stations

Re: Map generated in terrain

I belive the Airat9000 idea is for you to be able to chose in which biome will you spawn.
Now while it would be nice to be able to chose that I don't think it is so easy implementable due the way how current map generation algorithm works.

Re: [0.10.0] MiniMap bug

I think this happens because minimap is scaled down version of the map. Walls and belts are only 1 pixel thick lines on the map, so when you zoom out, not all pixels are shown making some of the belts disappear. I would agree with Rahjital that this is due to scaling down the larger map texture whe...

Re: More trains vs. longer trains

Using of long trains doesen't necessarily mean having huge train stations unles you are absolutely concerned about express loading/unloading of trains. You can load/unload train of any lenght with almost same train station setup that you use for smaller trains. How? All you have to do is add some ad...

Re: [0.10.8] V-sync doesn't work / excessive framerate

Ok, but it limits the fps to 30, but what if he just wants to have 60? (I personally hate to play on 30). What graphics card you use? The vsync seems to work fine for most of the people, so it is probably something specific to your hardware or driviers/settings of the card. If I run Factorio withou...

Re: Lag during autosave

I don't think that the main reason why it takes so much time for saving game are the HDD or SSD speeds. I belive that the main reason for this is the way how Factorio currently handles ingame data. When you have a static sized map you usually store all the map data in one data block so saving that d...

Re: Let the Steam Engines explode when overloaded for too lo

Or perhaps you have to pick an option on the engine to allow overclocking? OR water temperature can go above 100 degrees which then causes damage? I like this idea. The only problem is that with combination of logistics bots it can be exploitet becouse they will keep fixing the Steam Engines as the...

Re: [0.10.6] Clicking off and back locks the game for 5~ sec

Hello, when you do this, the game has to copy all the graphics stored in ram back to video memory (vram), the more graphics you have (mods), and the slower the drawing from ram->vram is the longer it takes. Wait why is Factorio unloading its graphics from VRAM when loosing focus in windowed mode? T...

I'm not sure exactly but I would say those represent the two 2D points (corners) which define the colision boy. I asume these are probably UpperLeft and BottomRight point. And as you know 2D point positions are always expressed with two values X and Y position. Now these positions are relative to ob...
