Re: Add SRV Record support

+1 please add this feature! I'm planning on setting up a server hosting service and this would defiantly make it easier for my users to connect to their servers.

Re: Friday Facts #173 - Nuclear stuff is almost done

What would be neat would be actual offshore pumps, floating on a barge with above-water pipes to cover more surface area. Along with that, I'd like larger pipes to pump more water to your power plants. Also support side-by-side pipes to prevent merging.

Meltdown could mean: 1 reactor is running 2 someone disconnects power line to factory (=0 load) ... 3. Circuit detects impending meltdown 4. Triggers Power switch to overflow accumulators 5. Reactor power down sequence initiated Come on, "tickling the dragon's tail" could be loads of fun....

Re: Friday Facts #173 - Nuclear stuff is almost done

I'm disappointed that you've decided to drop the cooling towers and stuff, I think it would've made the process much more interesting. Even if it has a huge jump in complexity, you should still be able to use steam engines to process the generated steam, but they wouldn't be nearly as efficient as t...

You can disable a station and the train will skip disabled stations in it's schedule. If there is only one station enabled in the schedule, it will wait at that station.
Thanks so much!

Re: Transporting Power in Bateries

I'm sure there have been some mods, that packed energy in accumulators and vice versa. I think in 0.12. So this is already possible. There are also ideas for having accumulator wagons to transport energy in that way and for electrified trains. Electric trains would be interesting, but I'd expect th...

Transporting Power in Bateries

Currently, you must have a direct connection to an outpost via power line to be able to power it (unless you setup a power station there which requires much effort). I suggest that you should be able to store energy in batteries, and transport these around. I know you can put power lines in rail blu...

Re: Low Ammo Notification

I would think it's better to just use combinators. You could connect a lamp to the circuit network and have it turn red when the ammo is low and green when it's full. I think it's best to just give gun turrets a constant supply of ammo using belts or trains. You never want to be low on ammo, and it...

Re: Change wire to have a "durability"

The "Ring-Menu" was also my first thought. Removing wires/cables works currently by placing it over an existing wire/cable. It makes sense to keep it like so... You mentioned in your post: not intuitive (to delete a wire you need to connect the same wire Why do you now want to keep it tha...

Re: Change wire to have a "durability"

If it was implemented as durability, would the distance between power poles / circuit connectors determine the amount of wire used? Or would it be a fixed amount of wire regardless of distance? I agree that spools of wire make more sense, but think durability is the wrong term. Maybe a spool would ...

Hm. When I read it right he means, that there is a tool to drag wires instead of using wire-items. And that topic fits exactly to the linked page I posted above.(*) (*) I ask me sometimes, why I make links to similar threads and lists of similar threads.

Re: Change wire to have a "durability"

Hrm, not convinced by this idea. For me durability is a property of a mining tool, not a refined resource (like wires). I don't see how durability would add anything to gameplay - you can already hold a stack of wire and once that stack is used it will replenish from main inventory if you have wire...

Change wire to have a "durability"

I tend to use up all my wire quickly, especially when building combinator circuits. It would be nice if it was possible to place down many wires with the same item, it would just loose "durability" when I do.

Re: Low Ammo Notification

10 is the number of magazines, that are loaded by default, when you load it with inserters. 1/3 is then 3 (or 4) magazines. Well. I cannot speak for others, but in the early game my turrets would be always alert with that setting. That's the reason why I think this is not so easy: Cause everyone pl...

Re: Low Ammo Notification

Not half as complex. Just define an arbitrary number below 50%. 1/3rd would be a good compromise. It means "slowly coming to an end" - and seriously, this normally means either I am in the field (and dropping turrest) - or my feed mechanism is not working/ammy supply chest is empty. I thi...

Re: Low Ammo Notification

What is "low on ammo?" Please define that more exactly, cause for me it is when there is one magazine left, for others it's maybe 10. It depends also on the stage you currently are. It depends on how often a gun turret is attacked. It depends on, what type of biters are attacking etc. The...

Low Ammo Notification

Currently, gun turrets only show the error symbol when they are out of ammo, it would be nice if there was a similar symbol (maybe yellow instead) to indicate that it's low on ammo.

Not sure, but maybe if a similar feature would be implemented for player guns, grenades, etc.?
