[0.18.31] Searching production for Uranium shows things unrelated to Uranium

What did you do? I searched the Production log for Uranium What happened? In addition to Uranium ore, U-235 and U-238, copper wire, rails and repair packs also were listed. What did you expect to happen instead? It might be obvious to you, but do it anyway! I expected only Uranium ore, U-235 and U-2...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

The item icons looking minimalistic is fine by me given they're kinda, well, minimal by nature. I mean, you don't want a lot of details on things that appear en masse on belts and in cramped inventory grids. In fact, one of the worst offenders on this front had been the old battery redesign, which ...

Re: Version 0.18.26

Change how underground pipes work

Current behavior: an underground pipe set is crafted from 5 iron plates and 10 iron pipes and can span a gap between exits from 0 to 9 tiles. Suggestion: What if the iron pipes were not needed in the craft, and you just crafted 2 underground pipe exits from 5 iron plates, and when you placed the exi...

When did landfill get changed to ugly brown?

The last time I played Factorio, I remember creating large swatches of beautiful green grass with my landfill. :) Load up the latest .18 to start again and it's this ugly brown dirt packed stuff. :cry: How do I get the grass back?

Re: Development and Discussion

But what I did is took my coal line and converted it to carbon. I am converting 6 coal/s to 18 carbon/s. More than a yellow belt. Looks efficient. Plus, carbon has one extra MJ. The thing you need to keep in mind is that this conversion process may consume more energy than it adds to the fuel. You ...

Re: 1-to-N sorting of ores: Is there any hope?

1-to-N sorting seems to be intended to acquire enough resources to research the necessary technologies for catalyzed direct production of needed ores.

Basically, seemingly intended inefficiencies at the start, with the reward of efficient production later on.

  • if the selected save is saved in a newer version than what you are about to save

What about "if the selected save has a different map seed / exchange string than what you are about to save" ?

There are many reasons for the current behavior. Typically you are expected to save over your previous save to avoid file cluttering.
That's like expecting a camera to always overwrite the last photo taken since "who needs all those photos anyway amirite?"

Re: Friday Facts #320 - Color correction

Not a fan. The new green circuits almost look yellow, rather than green.

Yet another unnecessary change in a sea of them. Any way to give an option to use the original style, rather than the ~new and improved~ (lol)? Not everything needs to be changed, perhaps in fear of getting left behind.

V453000, why do you keep doubling down on these stupid, unnecessary changes? Throw out all the oil and tech tree changes you've proposed so far and instead take a look at more uses for heavy and light oil. Like the others said, oil boilers, oil fed trains, diesel powered generators, etc etc. Increme...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

At this point, I'm honestly wondering if the devs have been mind controlled by an evil genius. I can only hope the devs will break free of this mind malady and realize what's best for the game. (hint hint: tutorials, polish and release, not sweeping last minute changes)
