Re: Friday Facts #368 - Steam deck, Ghost bugs, Docs improvements

I hope that, in the desire to try and add controller support to Factorio, the GUI/controls won't be more limited, the same way I've seen it happen in the gaming industry (I've seen the controls and GUIs in the games transform themselves over the years to be "console compatible", especiall...

Re: How-to: Two-way rails

Two-way rails are probably going to need "double signals" in order to fix issues due to lack of automatic re-pathing : [0.17.66] Trains waiting at regular signals do not try to Repath every X seconds ? https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=75140 https://forums.factorio.com/d...

Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

The rendering isn't going to be a performance bottleneck anyway... (unless maybe on very low power integrated graphic chips ?) And of course, as already mentioned, it's already fully multithreaded. ---- So this claim seems to be now dubious to me : I'm not a programmer, but given the fact that on mo...

Re: [MOD 0.14-1.0]Helmod: Assistant to plan its base.

Ok, more problematic though is that whether for steam or combustion mixture, the required quantity of fluid for power still doesn't change depending on temperature...

A more involved, less important issue is that for instance the combustion turbine mk1 only takes up to 750°C combustion mixture.

But do you really need all of them with you at all times? Well, yes, then I can craft the stuff I might lack on the spot ! (Logibots aren't fast enough IMHO.)

In Helmod 0.12.7, if you tried to enter a quantity for a fluid with a temperature you would get this:
Ah, yes, that was annoying indeed, thanks for the fix too !

Yes : py_combmix_fuel_value.png Yes, I do, at least latest on the mod portal : Pyanodons Coal Processing Version: 1.9.3 Date: 2021-02-02 data.lua : data.raw.fluid['combustion-mixture1'].fuel_value = '0.1MJ' Commenting that line out does fix the issue...

Re: Search in Map View / Map Search Box: Resources, Recipes, More?

Resource Labels (updated) indeed noticeably slows down the game (especially if you configure it to take 1 tick per chunk).

[Bob's Adjustable Inserters] Fast replace between Long inserters and others ?

I would maybe be a good idea to have the Long-handed inserters in the same fast replace group as all the other ones, since with Bob's Adjustable Inserters, the only differences between these inserters and the others are their starting length, rotation speed, and power consumption ?

The advanced tin-chromium alloy recipe is... barely better than the basic one, if not worse, depending on what you value ?

Re: pY Raw Ores Discussion

I've checked out the new multi-step Stainless Steel recipe, and while at first look it seems promising, it turns out it requires more than twice as much iron as the single step recipe. Example, using High Grade Iron > Molten Iron path, and hot air versions of the recipes, for producing 100 Stainles...

To confirm - the use of efficiency modules in miners to reduce the consumption of drill heads and biosamples is considered a feature or a bug ? (Or an "unfortunate feature" ?) (Helmod got an update yesterday fixing some bugs and adding some new QoL, very appreciated for a complex modpack l...
