Re: Let's Talk about the Bitters A.I

That is a coincidence, their ai is quite basic :) Still, even basic behaviors may seem complex and be fun.

Re: Why not Qt?

I'd say that QT is super heavy and not really suited for games - more for applications. Factorio needs just something light to do inputs/windowing, not a big framework you'd have to rewrite half of the game to fit into.

Re: So... Let's talk about bots, and how to fix them properly...

What if there was an infinite research for max active robot count in one logistic area? It would allow small-scale fun while providing challenge when building big-scale installations (you'd have to split the factory into multiple smaller chunks if you wanna mass bots, not just throw enough bots into...

Re: Improving Logistic Bots - Cable Roads

The part you're forgetting about is the player delivery. One of the main big features of bots is that they can resupply the player with whatever one needs quickly and on demand. As for the rest, it won't really nerf the bots - just build a dense net of those "poles" and it will be as it was.

Re: Best alternative to Allegro

I doubt, UE4 is 3d and factorio is 2d. Also, I'm worried about the performance.

Re: Best alternative to Allegro

Sfml or plain opengl, for a project of Factorio size rather opengl. For anything smaller, sfml.

Re: Saying Hello and a feedback question

I in fact have suggested that for substations and it went into the game :) Substations now have 16 instead of 14 range and they span exactly one chunk now!

Re: Force path recalculation

To the top! I have struggled with that and gave up after not coming up with such simple idea. I see several places to apply that one, will be mandatory for my next base.

Re: Save Games

Mods are in the builtin mod portal (mods.factorio.com), but nothing for the savegames. You can look for in the forums though :)

Re: Hello from a new player!

And one blue belt of iron/copper is not enough. 4 iron and 4 copper is barely.

Re: Smelters/Plastic need for full belt of blue circuits?

you need roughly 3 belts of plastic and ~20 belts of both copper and iron for 1 full blue belt of processing units. Processing units are super expensive.

Re: Smelters/Plastic need for full belt of blue circuits?

~24 blue lines of iron ore + ~15 blue lines of copper ore is 0.5 RPM factory if you use prod3 modules everywhere. I highly recommend using distributed train base on that scale :)

Endgame belt prod3/speed3 Green Circuit build

I have found the basic idea of the design somewhere and then refined it. Fills 2 belts without gaps. Chests are added due to not big enough buffer in the speeded up machines and long pickup times of stack inserters. http://i.imgur.com/XLCBKC1.png 0eNq1XNtu4zgM/Rc/JwtRd/VXBoNFkgodYxPHsJ3BFEX/fZ1eg1Z2...

Re: Solar farm fit for huge bases

In my opinion placing by hand is huge PITA. I'm approaching ~2 GW by now (or is it 3? I don't know) and I would never have laid that out with personal roboport...
