Re: Train depot

I guess I am just not using the game to its full potential .... I have a three car uranium train ... the middle car is a fluid wagon for the Sulphuric acid and is loaded at the uranium ore drop off station .... simples! I do this as well, but Loco<Fluid(h2so4)<Cargo(U)<Cargo(U)<Cargo(U). It seemed ...

Re: Train cornering speed limit - variable radius corners

Wider curves would be nice for aesthetics, but I think simple addition of couple of still unrealistically small radiuses would not give enough bang for the buck for devs or players. I'll disagree with this point. I would gladly let a train slow to a crawl to maneuver sharply (but not unrealisticall...

Re: Train cornering speed limit - variable radius corners

The question is how much complexity and granularity needs to be built into Vanilla given the style and power of tools the Factorio team presents to the user. Currently by fuel alone the trains have progressions of increasing top speed, accel, and effective wagon count (1,1,4,14,14) at top speed. htt...

Re: [0.17.50]. Link train cars for logstics

I'm not a developer, but I'm guessing because it's not a bug in vanilla (unmodded).

Here's the Bobsmods forum for reporting bugs regarding their mod:

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

+ 1 for a wider quickbar for a better fit to wide screens Also a section for last used and last crafted items would be nice. Voted usable ;) Hmm, a shortcut button/hotkey for "last used blueprint" would be nice in the area next to the quickbar, particularly since they don't show up in the CTRL+C/V ...

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

I love the new bar. I set it to 4x deep (easy to use with the new default screen resolution ~0.17). Personally I don't use more than the four so it is enough for me, with the most frequent on the top bar. You can grab stacks of items directly from the bar if you wish. When robot Logistics is researc...

Re: Please make factorio consistent [Blueprints]

I think I follow -- you want each combination of mods to have a different blueprint library. I fear since there is a near infinite combination of mods a Factorio player can have enabled at any time (not to mention by version#) this would not be practical. Perhaps you can use Blueprint Books to keep ...
