Re: Friday Facts #196 - Back on track

Why is all the code so closely coupled? Isn't it good design to loosely couple stuff? Especially between GUI and networking stuff, that sounds crazy.

Re: Satellite required to build stuff in the zoom-to-map view

I kinda love to add the radar view as research. Cause it would make much more sense. Cause currently the difference between player view and map view is - not logical. (I can explain it more detailed, but I think most know what I mean) I would not add it late (it's just the radar technology), but I ...

Re: Satellite required to build stuff in the zoom-to-map view

While I would not call it "OP" I would definitely call it "P". During a game I find it really useful. I can zoom to see where the bottleneck is, see what type of biters are attacking me at the turrets, etc. BUT, like all powerful things, giving them to the player right off the b...

Re: Satellite required to build stuff in the zoom-to-map view

What I'm interested in: What is the argument for the first sentence: The zoom-to-map view is becoming a little OP ? Why do you think so? Not that it's OP now, but the direction it's going could get to be OP. Maybe the developers don't want the ability to change recipes remotely, but there are a lot...

Re: Most entities have turned white

After resuming my computer from suspend, Factorio was turned white again (as in the first set of screenshots). Here's the dmesg, the first few lines are before the suspend for context, the rest are all since resuming the system: https://gist.github.com/chris13524/e039aa41ab3decec952c98725e137915 As ...

Satellite required to build stuff in the zoom-to-map view

The zoom-to-map view is becoming a little OP, and I'd like to see a few of those things be toned down a bit. Currently, you are able to place blueprints in any loaded (player range or the smaller box from a radar) area. However, you cannot change recipes, adjust/view circuit conditions, filters, etc...

Re: Most entities have turned white

It started happening again, but this time, not the whole screen like it was before: https://imgur.com/a/FZCTF

Very odd bug... Is there anything I would be able to do if this happens again? Perhaps a crash dump or something?

As before, it was fixed by restarting the game.

Most entities have turned white

I have no idea how to reproduce this... I'm running Ubuntu 17.04 with GNOME Shell 3.24.0. I have a second screen (Factorio is on main screen). https://imgur.com/a/JuLtK The whole background is moving around slowly in different directions (the wind effect?). The only entity I can see are the bots whe...

Electric network overlay in map should have different colors

I think the power line overlay in the map should change colors depending on different situations. For example, if a line gets cut somewhere, you'll be able to see the lines change in color (perhaps black for no power). Also if there is a brown-out, the lines will turn brown (maybe not this one, but ...

Filter in roboports

Currently, any bot can reside in a roboport. This causes an issue when one wants to make a self-replicating logistic bot army; I make two roboports, each with an inserter to insert the associated robot when the available bots drops below a certain threshold. The issue arises when say construction bo...

However, pressing Resume does not unpause the game, it only removes the game menu (you must press Shift + Space to actually resume).

Shift + Space

I accidentally bumped Shift + Space (which apparently paused my game), I had to go looking through the controls because there was no indication of what just happened. The "resume" button on the game menu is misleading in this case, there should be another (obvious) method to unpause the ga...

I was referring to when you move the blueprint from the library to your inventory.

Re: Way to delete blueprint books

It's useful to have them as items. That way you can put them in the quickbar and access with number keys, instead of having to open the gui every time. But you don't always want that. What if the library worked similar to a second inventory? Grab blueprint from libary > place > Q > gone. Grab bluep...

Way to delete blueprint books

Since blueprints and books are free now, I suggest some way to trash them and not be forced to store them in some chest somewhere. Perhaps similar to the "drag here to export to blueprint library" box?

Re: Friday Facts #183 - Aiming for the release date

Do you guys use Git Flow? It might allow you to keep some of these features (such as nuclear power) on their own feature branches before merging to develop. That way you could make smaller releases, more often.
