Re: [0.17.0] Campaign 1 Observations

Just as the final tech completed, some of what looks like debug text showed up on screen, seen in upper right corner of screenshot.

Re: [0.17.0] Campaign 1 Observations

Finished the campaign, and I didn't die. If the game had gone another minute, I was dead. My defenses were just being overrun when I finished. There is no way a new player could survive this, unless the code behind is purposefully ramping up attacks there at the end to overrun just for the thrill th...

Re: [0.17.0] Campaign 1 Observations

A thought, since the attacks are so aggressive, if a player loses here. They probably won't have a save from the beginning of this Part 2. There might be from the menu an option to start at Part 2 and not have to restart from the beginning. Maybe give the Introduction Campaign its own sub-menu that ...

C1 001.zip Okay, some of what I said obviously isn't material, since I didn't know the campaign moved to another section, and the "game continued." Up until the point I'm at, it says to build a science assembly to get 6 packs per minute. A quick thought, is it is pretty intense. New playe...

[0.17.0] Mods window, no X in upper right corner to close it

So, all the other GUI windows so far that I've seen have an X in the upper right corner of the window to close it, except the Mods window.

[0.17.0] Campaign 1 Observations

I'm finding it confusing, and I'm an experienced player. The smashed buildings, it's not clear that throwing materials at them, fixes them. A right click or hovering mouse over the smashed building, tool tip, that explains that would help. While the bot is explaining the bits to the GUI, the GUI is ...

Re: Friday Facts #283 - Prepare to Launch

I thought I read in the FF that release was today, February 25th, but now I can't find it. Here I sit anxiously awaiting. Is release today? Edit: I found it, it was in FF 282 - "If the playtesting goes well, we will let you know next Friday, and if it is the case, we will aim to release the wee...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

I don't want to be negative, but I thought the goal of 0.17 was to polish for launch. These changes "should" take another year of testing. As you're essentially making a new tech tree. I know developers have free reign to do as they please, but 0.16 is a fun game. As coders, don't you know...

Re: [0.16.51] Decider Combo not passing input count to different symbol

I guess I get the use case. Pass the value if (some other) value passes a check.

Re: [0.16.51] Decider Combo not passing input count to different symbol

Still seems that this is a bug. You can output a different symbol if you use the radio button to select 1 instead of input count. I read the "Version .13.0 Change log Decider combinator "input count" option makes the combinator copy the count of the specified output signal from the in...

[0.16.51] Decider Combo not passing input count to different symbol

So, if the decider combo has a value input and it passes the check say, 5000 yellow belts greater than zero. And I want to output 'A', nothing is output. But if I output the same symbol, in this case yellow belt, it works. The bug is that the symbol cannot be changed and get the input count. If you ...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

Honestly, thanks for the update. Any help on fluids is much appreciated. Fluids is the biggest challenge in factorio, such that I find putting fluids on trains and transferring them that way, much easier than trying to pipe them. Fluid mechanics, be damned. This isn't a simulation on real world mode...

Re: Off siting plate production for first huge exapansion?

Off site production, commonly called an outpost, is typical of any factorio base that uses trains. You can have a mine outpost, that mines ore and loads a train. The train brings the ore to another location for processing. Sounds like you do this already, and bring it to the main base for processing...

Re: Stuck with a circuit Network, please help

Some questions. 1) Did you build it? 2) Did you try to insert fuel into any of the reactors? Whatever the answers, I suggest. First, copy it and then make a deconstructor for all the combinators. Wipe them out and re-paste the blueprint once the reactors have stopped their work and have been emptied...

Re: Friday Facts #258 - New autoplace

I feel the 0.16 map generator is a bum. I liked 0.15. Resources, water etc were evenly spread out. Water was natural looking. Water and land in 0.16 looks completely unnatural, like the swirl in a coffee latte. It's very difficult to work with and need lots of landfill. If there's not oil in the sta...

Re: Performance optimization - post your saves

That said your save doesn't run much faster on my desktop. So it just gotten too big. Things take the most time to update in your save are inserters, transport lines and pipes. @posila - what are transport lines? belts? For pipes, I heard mention that work on improving pipes was coming. Any word on...

Re: Stations with same name: Avoiding orphan trains

1) Make the furthest mine as always enabled. With a stacker if you'd like. Trains will prefer the closer mines. If you use YARM, you'll know when mines get low and in need of adding new mine outposts.

Or

2) Have a mine outpost available for each train.

I prefer number 1, but 2 is another solution.
