Also with 0.17.4

Can confirm: crash when mining the scrap metal, following the order of objectives.
Fresh installation of 0.17.4
Could not trigger again, weird.

Re: Dynamically link .so files

So, being also an online game with reachable servers (reotely accessible) and the capability to include modder's files (spiced images, etc.), you provide security updates for the statically linked libs? At least that's the way our contractors handle those situations: "Build an apache yourself b...

Re: [0.17.1] Three numbers for percentage progress-value

Octal percent bar? Nice!

Wikipedia actually uses 073 as their example :D
For example, the literal 73 (base 8) might be represented as 073, o73, q73, 0o73, \73, @73, &73, $73 or 73o in various languages.

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

Factorio is still an early access game. It's in development. Things should change and many even break as often stuff can only change and improve by breaking others. In my opinion we can't rely on backwards compatibility and retention of etablished configurations as this holds back the overall devel...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

"Breaks" in the sense of detecing >4 when on full throughput for as long as the two splitted belts have not been emptied, so for about 2 seconds, after that the normal full belt throughput will again be split into 2* 1/2 full belt and detected as 2* 4 items on the belt Those bits can't em...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

Yes it is, if the value is a constant 8 it's full througput, if thoughput isn't full than it will fall to 7 or below. No that is detecting that the belt is full. That says nothing about throughput on the belt. Admittedly I've never needed to measure throughput as such, so I'm not sure when it would...

Re: Friday Facts #274 - New fluid system 2

Personally I like the idea of the "pig" to clean pipes and shove fluids together at one end. Also how about adding a new type of fluid named "Waste" or "Inseparable Fluid Mixture" or something similar, which appears as soon as two (or more) different fluids touch, and c...

Re: Friday Facts #271 - Fluid optimisations & GUI Style inspector

Is it just me or are the HD textures getting more and more clean and the game's general look gets more and more cartoonish and colourful and away from its initial "used look"? Agreed. Dieselpunk -> Comicpunk :( Maybe some kind of additional "tint" could be selectable from the Op...

Re: Friday Facts #268 - The modern Biter

Hm. Those new biters left me cold. I find them neither dreading and surely not "cute". Nice to have them in HD, tho and the animation is very nicely done.

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

So why don't we have graphic cards that send out screen refreshes to the monitor when we tell them to? Why not send frame 1 after 10ms, frame 2 after 17ms, frame 3 after 12ms and so on. Why can't the monitor update when we tell them to instead at a fixed rate that we have to keep up with? This tech...

Re: Friday Facts #260 - New fluid system

I think "behaves like a belt with splitters" is the intuitive result people think they're going to get without knowing anything about it. I guess the question is, is that the right thing they should be expecting? I think this is the catch... how correct is the intuitive opinion? E.g. I wo...

At this point, it has thus become easier to just demonstrate that there is no problem with sudden changes in supply/demand. I present to you a simple simulation of a straight length of pipe (I had no time to implement junctions). https://jsfiddle.net/TheYeast/ypwsbftg/ This is sweet! :shock: As you...

Oh happy joy!

So Factorio is going to be Vulkan with both DX11 and OGL as backup?

Re: Friday Facts #246 - The GUI update (Part 3)

Thank you for the mockups.

However I am not as happy as others seem to be with the outcome so far. For me it looks all over the place, riddled with inconsistencies and very "busy".
