Re: game.isconnected(ent1, ent2) / entity.isconected(ent)

ent1.connectTo(ent2) would need to know the cable type - so ent1.connectTo(ent2, type) where type is "copper", "green" or "red". Well, if we're talking about electricity, it's obvious it's a copper cable. Now there could be a method using the wire type. Or another meth...

Re: Friday Facts #18

I am guessing that factorio is made in C++, just because of the multiple inheritance at the end? True Factorio is written in C++ but class inheritance is not specific C++ only. Class inheritance is used in all Object Oriented languages (C++, C#, Java, Pearl, Phyton, Ruby, PHP, Objective Pascal and ...

Re: [0.8.8] Production stats way off

The thing is, those values (I think it applies to power as well) are not exact values but average.
Try to look at the amount of power consumed by your lamps, at the exact moment when they turn off (and you now use precisely 0 energy) You'll get what I mean.

I'm currently learning code, and we just had a project where we had to setup a 3D game engine using raycasting :)

Re: steel bar??

Or do it "Not Enough Items" style ?
Press "R" when mouse is on top of an item, shows a window with how to create that item.
Press "U" to show what can be crafted with it ? :)

Not sure if it's a bug, but the inserter's arm is rendered on top of the electric pole.

One little thing, I saw, that you built power lines by clicking individual electric poles, you can build them by dragging.
Dragging ?
What ?
I didnt know that.

Also guys if i make videos myself would you watch them ? (in french :P)

Re: Steel

Given the fact that even electric furnaces generate pollution, one could say that the air is full of carbon dust, and furnaces burn up that carbon, that makes pollution (same apply with miners making a lot of dust)
And 5 iron is enough to get all the required carbon from the air to make steel ? :P

Re: Rail Expansion

I haven't approved this, but every train stop has a name. If you give another station the same name, the train chooses that, which is free/more near. Ah ? I though if you have 2 stations, say "StA and StB", and you open StA to rename it to StB, then StB would automatically be renamed StA ...

Inserter and wagon

I found a bug with inserters and wagons.
Place a vertical track.
Place a wagon there. (Must be correctly aligned)
Place an inserter extracting from the wagon, and power it.
Now wait for the arm to extend to the wagon's center. Voila, now you cannot rotate it.

Tool strength vs different things.

I think that we should be able to have different tools with different strengths against different things. For example, a hammer is great to disassemble machines but sucks at mining resources, some tools might be awesome to cut trees, but useless to get machines or resources. Also It's easier to mind...
