Allowing negative numbers for Evolution factors

Is there any technical reason to not allow negative numbers in the game setup for evolution factors? I'd like to have a negative factor for the time, for example. That allows for a more casual early game since the biters would slowly calm down and chill out if I stop polluting, but still get upset a...

Re: Biters freezing

Possibly related; instead of setting up the fallback base, I went and attacked the biters hit and run style with my axe. I did note that a lot were not being aggressive. At one point I got close to the worms and they took a shot into the melee. I got an alert about my biter being attacked/killed. I'...

[0.17.2] Damaged Reactor description cut off

Code: Select all

Damaged reactor
A piece of the crashed ship containing a l
battery. It is still functional but critically
damaged.
The description text isn't wrapping right. I presume the word should be "large", but it goes off screen.
Default settings, 1920x1080 screen.

Re: Friday Facts #279 - Train GUI & Modern Spitter

Huh.
The green bar being the entire bar was unexpected.
The grip area on the right side looks like an empty progress bar, and those dark bars lighting up would be a little more relaxed.

Nifty stuff all around tho. Looking forward to it!

Re: [MOD 0.13] Black Market (sell and buy on the market)

I've been having fun with this lately. I don't see a way to do it at the moment, but a nifty feature would be to have an option or object which can read the current prices out as a circuit signal. That would allow an automatic cutoff of production if prices get too low to turn a profit, and an autom...

Re: How do you effectively supply non-laser defense perimeter

The turrets aren't really for fending off the artillery aggro, although they will do that during step 2. The turrets are for preventing any new bases from being built, which means no biters being spawned and no further artillery shots required after step 2 is complete. Your turrets will only need a ...

Re: How do you effectively supply non-laser defense perimeter

Artillery is the king of the battlefield. 1) Put a line of defense turrets at the edge of your artillery's autofire range. 2) Then, manually target artillery further out, and ONLY kill the spawners. Aim carefully, and leave the worms alive. 3) Profit. (Turrets no longer need resupply.) Turrets will ...

Re: A simple way to insert 1 fuel cell into each reactor

For a super-simple starter reactor throttle, that is good. And slightly more efficient that I'd been doing it myself, since I wasted a box and an inserter to feed the reactor inserter one cell at a time from a large stockpile. But really, for any serious reactor there is plenty of time for (the bots...

Re: Combinator Jukebox

How do you plan to actually get durations out of a speaker? As I understand it, the speakers play a fixed strum/ding/plink/etc sample, and if the signal is still present, they repeat it. IE: DingDingDingDing, not Diiiiiiiiiinnnnnng. Chords in one signal is a good addition; when the timing activates ...

Re: Combinator Jukebox

I plugged in numbers manually, using the top left bit shifter so that timing and pitch could be typed in separately. I did a terrible job on the tune, but it works as a proof of concept. I should also note that a serious jukebox would use a "Green > 0" => "1xGreen" combinator on ...

Re: Friday Facts #245 - Campaign concept

Google "New Hope 4" and look at those that can't beat it. It is because it is a race against time, if you don't build the plane fast enough you can't stop the assaults. My strategy was to kill all the biters, and then take a good long sit-back to build the plane. It took a fair bit of rel...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

They're both plain old steam, just at different temperatures. A while back, I bled off the hot steam from a test reactor into my standard power plant, and the steam in the tanks mixed up to ~350 degrees with the turbines showing an intermediate level of "available performance". I don't kno...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Has there been any !!Science!! done on steam temperature mixing?
For example, if you mix nuclear steam (500) with coal steam (165) are there any inefficiencies or rounding issues that will change the total energy value?

Re: Power poles self-destruct on their own in .15?

Why would you not put efficiency modules in a base with isolated power?
18kW or even 36kW per drill is much more reasonable.

Re: Friday Facts #234 - Office pictures

After watching that whole video, I think I agree. Player armor should have some laser resistance, since that would make sense with combat against other humans(?) historically as the tech was developed, and PLD should be weaker than big stationary laser turrets. Radar detection of land mines would be...
