Re: Lategame Mining

Mining speed no use beacons and modules not researching like productivity, I want my patches to last as long as possible even if it has more mining at a time. However mining area yes it would allow beacons and modules to be used, making it a separate item like other tiered mining setups (mods), a l...

Re: Attacking biters with turrets makes all weapons pointless

An activation delay would be ineffective. Drop a turret just outside biter-response range, wait out the delay, drop your next nearby but just inside response range, lather, rinse, repeat. If you want scarier biter behavior, get Rampant . They're not "clever girl" smart, but they'll mess you up pret...

Re: What are the opinions on the current Turret Damage output?

Building on Medu's list, here's a list of combat buildings I want in the game that are based purely off things already in the game: Incendiary ammo, puts a fire-sticker on enemy but weaker than one by a flame turret Incendiary landmine, puts fire-flames on the ground when activated Uranium landmine,...

I want to draw a box, not spaz wildly and hope I didn't miss one.

Re: 800MW Steam Power Plant - Adjustable Performance

Can you make this for 0.15? Wouldn't it be better to build a Nuclear Power plant instead of this coal wasting monstrosity? :D Also, it would have to be entirely redisigned due to the size changes in boilers. This is really easy in .15 since it's now a simple 2:1. Need more power? Plop down a boiler...

Re: Hexagonally Tileable Advanced circuit production

This is always fun to do with anything that's a 1:4-6 ratio. There are some interesting ratios if you try to do it with red + green + blue production (all at 1.25/s aka 12 blue, 6 green, 5 red asm3's). Engines, miners, green circuits, copper cable all get directly inserted, leaving belts needed for ...

Shift + left click + drag (box) for multi-set

TL;DR / What? Right now shift + right click copies an entity's settings and shift + left click pastes it. It would be nice if shift + left click + drag (to highlight a box) pasted to all of the same entity in that box. Why ? Copying settings to many entities at once is tedious as a lot of work is s...

Re: What are the opinions on the current Turret Damage output?

I made a similar chart recently! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/1phTGV3hAlkaMahOZdyfes1BeXoJPYjk6J1W_sn6K_g4/edit?usp=drive_web What I want to see is more reason to mix and match turrets. Flamethrower turrets currently fit this well as the only real AoE and DoT turret. I want to see "sma...

Re: Remove robot charging cheat

-1 from me. As already said it doesn't add anything interesting to the gameplay. It just makes attempting to use personal constructions bots before you get fusion power even more frustrating for the player. For me the current behaviour is adds to Factorio's Quality of Life. So then allow charging f...

Re: [0.15.5] Cannot delete empty blueprint

I'd much rather see a keyboard shortcut to delete any blueprints. Or even an option to automatically delete blueprints. I hate that they clutter my inventory, I'd much rather use the B button to open blueprints library and use blueprints from there. Both blueprint and destruct planner should be key...

Re: Remove robot charging cheat

If you want it there's a Mod called Picker Extended that does this amongst other things. personally I find not being able to mine robots out of the air annoying in about 8 different ways but if you want it there's mods for it You'd still be able to mine them, it just wouldn't magically refill their...

Re: Wire your own power poles..

Just for anyone else who comes across this thread: You can remove individual wires by using the same wire (copper, red or green) between the two connected object. This doesn't use up a wire but doesn't return the removed wire either. This lets you change wiring without removing all the wires and red...

Re: Remove robot charging cheat

I definitely agree that bots should only be charged via an actual charger.

I think a better solution would be that bots lose all battery when mined, so that there's no technical challenge of adding the data to the bots in inventory and you don't have to worry about stacking issues.
