Re: [0.8.4] Repair bots do not pick up items from hub

Well, if the system is in need of manual intervention, then it could notify the player. So if a dedicated view for logistics is implemented, then notifications, warnings and whatnot could be shown there. If a bot is stuck in any sort of manner then it lands somewhere and the logistics system simply ...

Re: [0.8.4] Repair bots do not pick up items from hub

What if I - as curious as I be - cut the logistic network into two parts while the bot fulfill the requests? Which of the reserved items in the chests can then be fulfilled and what to do if not? If a bot cannot return the item for some reason, it takes it you. If you are out of range, it waits by ...

Re: [0.8.4] Repair bots do not pick up items from hub

I've encountered this problem as well. While a bot is fulfilling an order, the order may no longer be completable and the bot just hovers with its item. It's rare, but it has happened. My solution is simple, just have the bot take the item back to where it got it from. But what if the chest it got i...

Re: [0.8.x] Logistics Robots

Yes, the queues become noticible when you approach 400 active bots with ports spaced furthest apart. But the I think the best idea is what Dysoch had, give us a version of the Roboport that is purely charging stations, the "Chargeport". The Chargeport could have 9 stations and bots would c...

Bot visibility toggle

When you use bots extensively, things start getting a bit hairy: I have found that it gets hard to see buildings and other things when bots become to dense and you also end up accidentally mining a bot every now and then. My suggestion is to allow us toggle the visibility (and selectability) of bots...

[0.8.0] Minimap colours are off

The darkness of certain areas doesn't match the minimap. Why is the bright yellow patch to the right shown so dark on the minimap? It confuses the eye. The minimap colours should be an average of that specific terrain so that the eye can easily match the two. Coal is also coloured or shown badly. At...

Re: Combat system far too fast?

In the end of day, I think what is important is that we have a variety of options. More options means more players will find their own way of handling the enemy. Put it this way, you have many ways to make a factory, but very few to take down a base. The tank is on the list. Will it be able to accep...

The way spawners work [0.7.4]

http://i55.servimg.com/u/f55/15/71/93/52/screen14.jpg As you can see in the above image, spawners are free to go crazy. In the above situation, we're locked in an endless fight. It doesn't really make much sense that spawners can get away with this and it feels artificial. My suggestion to make spa...

Question about scenario pack

Is the scenario pack from the second tier eventually going to be made available for first tier customers or will it remain exclusive?

I am wondering what is going to happen when the game is completed.
