Re: Friday Facts #293 - New remnants 2 & 1.0 Marketing plan

In an article about GameDevTycoon, their creators complains, that their game is bought legally for less then 10% of users. Their statistics looks artificial, since it's 1st day of sales. As I heard, a lot of players prefer to download "free torrent demo", to see what games looks like. Some...

That suggested steam transporting may be better option in game world. However, I do not like such unrealistic physics and will not use them.
Hehe, my education in a field of energy production, also do not allow me to consider long time steam storage, even in game.

Re: Minimal nuclear power for artillery outpost?

- Biters, normally, attack only pollution producing things, everything else only when too bored. At least I had some power lines across biters controlled territory and they completely ignored them. - Nuclear reactor is not a compact thingy. - Majority of base defense plans still agree, that it's bet...

Re: Playing at 'full speed'

I never thought that game speed can be changed, neither had any problems about it. If you think biter attacks are too fast - just build more defense in advance. If you fight for extra territory - do it some automatic way - not by hands, like in shooter.

Re: New Train GUI less usable for trains with lots of destinations

Could be nice. I also use personal train, and new station list is too long.

I'd say right of switch automatic-manual, a checkbox or switch show/hide conditions (switch state saved for each train individually) will solve the problem.

Re: how to change map generation to 0.17 on old 0.16 map?

I've found so far: File in client data\map-gen-settings.example.json has a comment Use '0_16-elevation' to reproduce terrain from 0.16." I've checked in two saves: in older maps this field is "0_16-elevation" and "nil" in new 0.17 generated maps. I can print that value in co...

Re: Shushi Belt?

In whole I've found Shushi Belt somewhat fun but not so useful design. Because it has limited throughput, does not support well lab number increase, and have to be fine tuned many times (if you making one by yourself). So I usually skip it and go directly to dedicated area bot supplied research. Thi...

Re: Shushi Belt?

If something is too complicated, just build one yourself, then it will be easier. In Factorio, other player designs, often could be used as a guide, not for direct copy. Ofc, you can direct blueprint copy 12*12 mixer or 4x4 railway cross, just because it's boring to create same thing by hands. In Sh...

how to change map generation to 0.17 on old 0.16 map?

I have a map originally generated in 0.15 When client was upgraded to 0.16 new chunks were generated using 0.16 algorithm (the one we all hate). Now I continue to play this map in 0.17, but new chunks are still getting generated using 0.16. :cry: I suppose client preserve old generation method for s...

Re: [0.17.25] Coal deposits blinks on a minimap when char moves

Very cool demo picture! On my display both Parity and Step 2px works well - no blinking. On slow movement speed all methods have some disadvantages, but better then Normal. Parity gives some shimmering on deposit borders, while in Step 2px map movement is a little less smooth. I think Parity is slig...

Re: [0.17.25] Coal deposits blinks on a minimap when char moves

Is the effect captured on the video? Because I don't see any problem (watching at fullscreen 1080p, of course) Yes I see same effect on video. As some ppl says blinking probably happen due to monitor white-to-black latency. Since coal on a minimap is drawn by interchange 1-0-1-0-1 of black and usua...

Made a video - https://youtu.be/pjTlge9vwt0 You're probably seeing this effect (move the browser window around to see it). Patterns of alternating light and dark pixels are very problematic for LCDs of any type to display movement of. Do you mean that when a minimap image is shifted by one pixel in ...

[0.17.25] Coal deposits blinks on a minimap when char moves

Just noticed that coal deposits blinks on a minimap when a char moves. 100% reproducible. Restarting client, loading another save, generating new map - it always blinks. Only coal. Other minerals - no. It happens only during walking animation (or moving in a car). As soon as char stops blinking stop...

Broken power pole looks sweet but I am happy enough with flat standard debris, especially if the nice one will impede my freedom to move. That's right!

Re: Satisfactory - 3D Factorio?

Game is very fun to play. It's similar to Factorio, in 3D. When you research some tech (coal fuel) base become able to run indefinitely until output containers are full, and game starts to behave closer to Factorio concepts. It's possible to build rather big factory. 3D is interesting for a factory ...
