Re: [10.0.4] Crash on leaving logistic area

You can still play pretty normally with this bug, just save frequently and do not use logistic robots to deliver too much stuff. Currently I just wait till all my delivery requests are satisfied and then you can leave the base. Anyway, I hope it will get fixed soon, so I can update my robotic network.

Re: Round vs. quadratic

Everything else uses squares and taxicab metric (total distance is sum of x and y distances). It's not Taxicab metric . It's the Chebyshev metric (Total distance is maximum of x and y distances). OT: I believe mathematicians call these Manhatten and Maximum metrics/norms (or alternatively L_1 and L...

Re: More Stats?

Also it would be useful and small to have for every mine and assembling machine some stats how many percent of time it is producing (with a reset button), and some global stats (how many items was produced, how long it is running, total electricity cost). Similarly for every turret the number of kil...

Re: Post your map Thread

Hm. With this map you'll have problems finding enough creeper eggs to finish rocket defense, cause there are so few creepers. There are only a few of them because I have destroyed many of them :). (Using car, it is fairly cheap and easy.) Now I am trying to make a wall around my factory, so I am sa...

Re: Let's play - wiki page

It would be ok, if there would be a video about factorio, when following the link. But there is none. Even when I search for it I didn't find any factorio video there. For me this is currently just spam. Perhaps the links are wrong or I see with my iPad something very different or they haven't uplo...

Re: Post your map Thread

Btw. there are strange straight-line changes in the terrain, I suppose it is some bug of the map generator? Did you start this map with one version of factorio, then finish using a later version? If different chunks of the map are generated with different versions of the map generator, straight lin...

Re: Update 0.6.0

Is it just me who things that the graphics is getting worse and worse by every release? The reason is that everything just looks the same and it is very hard to orient in it. In my factory, I just see a lot of gray things, all of which are looking the same :(. I will do tests concerning the speed of...

Re: Midterm goal

I want to all add my point of view here. It is true that multiplayer takes quite some time to develop, but I believe the time is worth that (for me certainly much more important than graphics). It is obvious that quite a lot of people on this forums care mostly about singleplayer because, well, they...

Ya, but for now better wiki would be also good. It is quite obsolete now, and it would be great if someone from this forum could help with it.

Re: Version 0.5.0

The map generator can be represented by two functions: TilePosition -> GeneratedTile TilePosition -> GeneratedEntities (fish, resour...

Cool mod, it is really useful. But it might be nice to add also minutes, so one could have more accurate information how the day progresses.

Ok, thanks for explaining. It is just very weird, I believe having it at least 8x8 would make better sense. Who should it work like this?

[0.4.1] Big poles supply only 4x4??

I was looking at different types of poles and it doesn't make much sense that big pole supports smaller area than small pole. It should probably by 10x10 or something like that.

Re: Factorio <> Industry Giant 2

It would be nice if there would be certain type of item you could get only from trading, and you would need it for making more complex things, research, etc. Then you would be highly motivated to trade and help cities. In the current setting, it could be some camps/cities of friendly aliens.

Re: Factorio <> Industry Giant 2

Quite a nice idea even through this is not the direction Factorio is heading. It might make quite an interesting mod where you would need to produce some stuff and you would get money / stuff in exchange for it.

Re: [MOD 0.3.x] Treefarm

Because people would use it wrongly and mods would not work in reaplays/multiplayer. You would need to save/load the state of your random generator, to avoid all of the hassle, the game.getrandomnumber function is there. We could also trick it, so math.random would actually use the game.getrandomnu...
