[0.11.8] Research name missing

Image

Clean, vanilla install. Problem appeared in 0.11.7, persisted in 0.11.8

Some researches work correctly, many dont - specifically multi-level researches.


Edit: All researches that have number symbol in bottom right corner dont work properly, rest have normal names.

Re: Game modes/setup: recipe list multiplier

Having more options would not be a bad idea:

- time modifiers
- forbid certain items/reseach alltogether.

Re: Flying buildings

How would it merge with old designs? Atm apart from producing plates and superconductors it would appear the previous factories are not needed anymore. This might make current factory designs irrelevant, and force players to rush for said research in the next playthroughs Refer to my other post for ...

Re: More levels of robot speed research

How about instead of flying roboport we would have a train roboport? Frankly I believe that every new step should either give us new opportunities or/and use established base structure. This is one large gripe we had with robots as soon as they were introduced: They were too detached from the rest o...

Re: Humble beginning..

i am building two bases. with significant distance between them. (assuming 1 block is 1mx1m then bases are approximately 5km apart) 1st base will produce no pollution at all and will house long term storage, solar power generation as train depot. 2nd base will produce all the pollution at extreme vo...

Re: End Game Idea - Enormous Modular Spaceship Factory

Nice suggestion, i like the style. One thing i would like you to consider: It would be better to keep player old base still relevant, because frankly i would hate to find out that all these structures, all these things we have made (and developers spent their time working on) will become essentially...

Re: More levels of robot speed research

I would prefer the change however. Just because something isn't perfect doesn't make it ok to make it worse. Edit: ive been building large vanilla bases for year and a half. Robot speed was never an issue (charging and zones were) We are already doing it with : Shields, Belts, inserters, Furnaces, E...

Re: More levels of robot speed research

Frankly i think robot speed is sufficient - when you limit the controlled area and don't cover the entire base with one. Adding more research sounds to me like throwing resources to fix logistical challenge. whats the point of developing complex bases if it could be avoided by paying some extra reso...

Re: Waving Gates (Cosmetic Improvement)

I guess the edit was done way after i've responded.

In that case - no the gate is designed to look like one solid object it makes no sense to cut it apart.

Re: Multiple occurrences in requester chests

3*15=45 but i digress. I dont think game cares if you have two stacks, or one. Especially this would require substantially a lot more code (robots inserting half-stacks separately, inserters taking from the specific stack) to be worthwhile IMHO. especially since we can request specific amount alread...

Re: Waving Gates (Cosmetic Improvement)

They kinda do that already. albeit with small radius its kinda hard to notice. Or you want tiles of single gate to behave like that?

Re: Better train logic (smarter alternative route finding)

How about fake train stop?

- can be added to the train route between train stations.
- trains will route through it, but will not stop at it like normal train stops


Sort of like:

Station A
- waypoint A1
- waypoint A2
- waypoint A4
Station B
