Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

For the avoidance of doubt, please can you confirm what the exact inputs and outputs of the proposed new Basic Oil Processing recipe is? Is it 100 crude in, 100 petroleum out? Is it 100 crude in, 40 petroleum out? That's in the FFF- 100 crude in, 45 petro out: https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/bl...

Re: Objects missing robots/Needed objects changing randomly

Generally this is the last 600ish ghosts processed that'll have active alerts. I also have seen up to 1201 ghosts being processed normally at the same time. This seems like a much higher number than 600. How is this possible if the game only handles the 600ish ghosts that sometimes appear to be the...

Re: Geothermal energy with water and steam

https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Geothermal is close, the drills don't need water but also don't produce steam directly; you need to convert their superheated water to steam first, which requires regular water.

Re: [0.17.9] Physical Projectile Damage 2 pre-requisite missing

Like is said the 50 (hyperbole) other topics about this kind of thing, the devs generally don't define science pack prerequisites for multi-level techs like this, to avoid clutter in the tech tree.

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

If you want to move precisely in the same direction as a belt an automatic disable would still be annoying. So as I see it a toggle definitely would be better. Though making the toggle between fully on and on except when moving with a belt wouldn't be bad at all.

IIRC the default keybinding is different on Mac, try command + right click.

Re: [0.17.23] Splitter bug?

The wiki is not meant to be a repository for blueprints, and so the balancer blueprints were removed. You'll have to go to a dedicated third party site like factorioprints.

Re: [0.17.23] Keybindings don't recognize s + d + escape

To be clear, can you press that combination and get results outside of Factorio? Some keyboards have physical limits of how they recognize simultaneous button presses, due to their underlying design.

Re: Version 0.17.23

To me, this is like if they fixed a typo in a function used by a bunch of mods. It's something that would need to be done sometime , and if not on a major release when all those mods would have to update anyway, than on a minor experimental release is the next best time. Yeah the error message is no...

Sorry to say this 0.17.18 is the worst realize ever. 2 macroscopic bugs found in few minutes of gameplay, never happened before.
I don't know about that, trainpocalypse was very bad. Humorous effects now we look back at it, but bad.

I have seen this before, but I don't remember with what game. I don't think it was Factorio.

Re: [wheybags]Image codes's length not correctly considered for train station names

To be fair, a lot of apps like forums count each character in the pre-render markup. This is at least partly because in many of those setups markups can be stacked even though they don't have any visual effect (like 500 underline tags on the same text, for an extreme example) and you still have to s...

If I'm seeing it right, the chemical plant is connected to the output pipe, which is reserved for light oil.

Re: There's a bug in the train's parking

It is so much easy for developers to make it work like it should: FIFO. It's not a simple "this line of code controls it" but the entire logic around updating trains and that's some 2400~ lines across multiple files. If Rseding can't even describe the current order because of the complexi...

Re: [0.17.14] Recipes with more than one instance of the same ingredient

If they don't just ignore it, I think it's better to just error out and let the mod maker decide if they want to sum the duplicates or just keep one.

Re: Anyway to increase alien loot pick up range?

You could also use a deconstruction planner filtered to items on ground and have bots pick it up for you. Or even just use the red Xs for better visibility.
