Re: Nostalgia..

I remember playing it and finally I managed to kill a big nest and I was so proud when I collected my stuff. I was looking how the labs proceed with this precious material. And then … the research stopped. I was missing one (1) dammed egg! :lol: Ya, that was somehow cool and frustrating at the same ...

Re: Using the graphics card to help the CPU out…

What you really need to solve is that all inserters behave the same no matter what order you process them in. If you can do that then it's trivial to run them in threads, be that 8 CPU cores or 8000 GPU cores. I think that’s the crux: you have to have an order, otherwise on inserter can pick an ite...

Re: Idea: Add train configuration setting to LTN stops

Mrvn, I think you underestimate how long it takes in LUA to check such things. You need to get the train, then all vehicles of the train and that’s a more or less expensive operation. Even without that, it takes some time to compare this, because it needs to be done every time we look for a train fo...

Re: Put blueprints into the clipboard history when pulling them up to place

Maybe it’s your common sense. :? 8-) Mine it’s not. I would not like to have my clipboard mixed up with things I already have elsewhere. If I want to have a BP in my clipboard, I paste it as ghost and immediately delete it with CTRL-x. But i don’t use this often, instead if I repeatedly use some blu...

Re: Adding a FAV button in the Mod menu

What does this fav-button actually should do? Is it just a checkbox that can be turned on by the player in the installed mods tab and can be filtered for when searching for mods?

I read this several times and I don’t understand it. 8-) In this current form this cannot be discussed, because the ideas are quite too vague. :) Questions: - what do you understand by “energy current”? - what do you mean by “can be manualy reigned to game transporting&constructing elements.”? -...

Re: Version 1.1.40

There are not only stupid players (clients), but stupid people in charge (admins) as is the case for everything in this world. There should not only be a ban command, but also a “keepoff” command. ;) So that someone can put a server onto a list of “not so recommended” servers. Not sure if that’s re...

Re: Using the graphics card to help the CPU out…

Which actually still baffels me that you let bots travel till they run out of energy before finding a charging pad. If and when that happens is known when they start the journey. I wrote that later: You also need to calculate t1: the time when it arrives at the target, tLowBat, the time, when energ...

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

I disagree strongly. Isometric view without being able to rotate in 90 degree increments would be a huge step down in usability. Why? It’s as needed as yet. I remember playing some isometric games, where it wasn’t possible to rotate view. I didn’t miss it. It depends strongly about how the graphics...

No, it’s ok. But lets me think about, if this suggestion doesn’t belong much more to balancing, than to suggestions. :) Not really ;) but this suggestion spreads out more and more into “personal taste”. It goes from “bots should not die in combat, it’s unhealthy that they don’t avoid fire/acid” to “...

Exactly. Data privacy is here an very important thing; Only things that matter/help to decide the recommendation should be stored on the server. Which brings me to the question: What information about the player is stored on the ban-server? I guess: - player(id) - date - ban/unban-commands - server ...

Re: Using the graphics card to help the CPU out…

I thought robots where made to be so simple they don't need to do any work per tick. They only do work when damaged, when they reach their target or when they run out of energy Yea, but at least you need to calculate their current position every tick when visible on screen, so you can draw them. So...

Not all was interesting on my click-stream. One article which brought me to the idea: https://www.digitalengineering247.com/article/the-expanding-role-of-gpus-in-simulation/ “We found that almost all types of simulation can be accelerated by the GPU,” Factorio is nothing else than a simulation.

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

an isometric view - even only from one direction - would make things so much easier. Everting would look much better, It would look different, if that's "better" is a matter of taste imho. But I'm more interested in how that would make anything easier? I've never encountered a situation w...
