Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Here's another take on the whole thing: There are moments when playing Factorio where you go "Wow! That changes Everything!" They tend to be around the time when you learn how to automate something new. When you start, you're mining ore by hand, smelting it, and making things out of it. Yo...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Another reason why the oil change is bad: Set up a line of refineries, all next to each other. Run a solid pipe all along each side of the line. The new recipe encourages this. Try to change the recipe to advanced refining. **You won't be allowed to!** You'll get a random message about not allowing ...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

What about BOP only yielding HO and LO in addition with basic (waterless) cracking repices. This would show new players quite directly how oil processing and products are suppose to be done from the beginning, by forcing them to set it up in the first place. Getting PG from LO somewhat comparable o...

Re: [MOD 0.17] Deadlock's Crating Machine

"More Accurate Player Size Compared to Vehicles" is a mod that does 90% of what squeak through does, as far as I can see. Seems to work by making the player BB smaller. Also, I have a bug when I use version 1.5.0 or later of crating with 0.0.4 or later of Bob's intergrations . Complains it...

[0.17.52] Loading mods stops at 87%

When trying to start Factorio, the loading screen stops at 87%. I have a lot of mods installed (and things like Rampant, Bob's Enemies and NE all with their variations turned up), but since I haven't been able to load the game, I haven't been able to trim down the list to find which mod or setting (...

Re: Rails don't need bronze, but are gated behind bronze tech

In pure Bob's it isn't too bad, since gas venting is only a couple of techs away (but storage tanks needs logistic science). In Angel's it is a much bigger annoyance, since venting is behind gas processing (tho you can get the small tanks with just red science they require steel). It changes the ea...

I don't see this as ever being feasible with how the train system works.
Train tunnels, or letting modders have access to the rail block tree?

Allow modification of rail block connections the pathfinder sees

This is (primarily) for the Train Tunnels mod.

It would be really useful to be able to tell the train pathfinder that two rail blocks (possibly on different surfaces) are to be treated as though they are connected, even though they're not next to each other.

chunks could have a setting for being pollutable. This would allow more flexibility than just checking the map size.
This would be a wonderful thing.

Re: [MOD 0.14] AAI Programmable Vehicles

I assume you've seen this mod: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Total_Automization ?

Looks like it's a showcase for how to do what you do in 0.17.

Eagerly awaiting your release :)

Re: Did no one else notice massive nerf of tank in 0.17?

So how about a few ideas for technologies that boost the tank other than the damage upgrades? An infinite tech line for tank HP? A tech (and infinite upgrade tech) to give it shields? A tech to let it auto-deploy distractors (or any combat bot) from it's inventory? (And give it it's own follower cou...

Logistic Science only Technologies

Since Science packs 1, 2 and 3 are getting renamed to Automation, Logistic and (I can't remember the last one), and being set up as tiered, it would be cool if there were a few techs that only needed green science, rather than only needing red science. I'm thinking Logistics 1, Automobilism, and Tra...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

One suggestion:

Replace "straight pipes" with "pipes with only one or two connections"

Otherwise diagonal pipelines will cost heaps more than straight ones.
