Re: teleporting in on_gui_open places cursor on new surface

Sounds like the placing is caused by the player still holding the mouse-button down. As that is a physical input there's not much you can do about it except for delaying the giving-of-the-blueprint? Maybe give them a capsule and use on_put_item to detect when they release the button. ...or clear th...

Re: Spread out trains among stops with shared names by adding a routing penalty per train already heading to a given sto

Why ? I'm working on a tileable nuclear reactor in sandbox, which is using a fluid-wagon-train-fed water supply. I'll share the save if anyone's interested, but it's still WIP. The trains have a very low margin for unloading time in order to keep the boilers filled with water (which is hardly the o...

Re: [0.17.66] Suboptimal train pathfinding with two curved tracks intersection

boskid has the right idea. The train starts pathing at the end of the segment it’s in, not counting the distance it needs to travel first to reach that end. Segments are series of connected rail pieces, delineated by switches, signals and stops. Try it with all of them. :) Build order can have an e...

Re: [0.17.60] Items degroup between splitters

No. Since the items all arrive at the same time, I would expect them to pass through the splitters undisturbed. Instead the first copper and iron plate get ahead when passing through the first splitter. You should probably keep in mind that "the same time" vs at different times is not nec...

Re: How do you handle power shortages?

Re: [0.17.66] Game Crash while initializing

Just a quick check, since it hadn't been mentioned: one thing I found that caused DXGI crashes was that some in-game overlay apps, and some "overclocking / tuning" things like RivaTuner would cause a crash there. They used hooks that broke some driver or other assumption about the state of...

Re: Stuck on a circuit condition

Re: [0.17.66] Reading trains done too late

However upon entry of the train into the station, all inserters insert at least one item into the train which is in violation of the circuit condition. I remember seeing this behavior long ago, designed my way around it not understanding. FWIW, my personal rule of thumb is that in Factorio you shou...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

I think you mean the logistic network? And yes, you can connect the inserter directly. If they meant the circuit network (as in, reading content of chests or something) the same deal applies. Just connect the circuit wire, and set the enable condition the same way. That only works if you have a sin...
