Your damage effects are doing a small amount of damage each tick, but with tons of them:
What mod is that actually coming from? I've never used NE in my game yet, but I'm collaborating on Bio Industries/Natural Evolution and should look into this. (Currently working on NE Buildings, so if it's in NE Enemies it would still be some time until I'll get around to it.)
A good mod deserves a good changelog. Here's a tutorial (WIP) about Factorio's way too strict changelog syntax!

This came from NE Enemies.
It's one of the damage effects, probably from one of the new spitter biters.

Hello,
I hear during a game that an alien biome integration that spawns biters depending on the terrain would be great. Do you have the possibility/time/idea to integrate this into your mod?
As an example, spawn preferentially fire biters on lava biome, etc.
Thanks for this awsome mod, this keep me challenged everytime I play with it!!

It seems the setting to disable artifacts does not work. Biters still drop alien artifacts. And I don't think there's anything I can do with them anyway. Is this a known issue?

this happened for me too, but i was using Biter Factions and assumed it was because forces other than player were attacking them.

I'll put that on my list of things to do…

I think you also need NE Buildings. The artifacts are used there for building the Alien Control Station and the Terraforming Station. Alien artifacts are also needed to produce Alien revitalization solution, which is an ingredient for Enhanced nutrient solution in turn.

Sorry, not right now. I'm still working on Bio Industries (the biggest of TheSAguy's mods), cleaning up code and fixing hidden bugs (especially local variables used out of scope seem to be a major issue). Turns out it's a much bigger job than I expected! As BI and the NE mods have a lot of common (entities and code), I'll first need to adapt the NE mods to make them compatible with BI again. Then there will probably follow several updates of the NE mods because of new bugs I didn't find myself. Just to give you an idea: I've had to release 5 updates for BI during the past week because of some new bug that had crept in, and another update will follow in the next hour or so. Moreover, almost every update means working on two versions (for Factorio 0.17 and 0.18), so it's quite a chore!

When I'm done with this task (i.e., when there is a clean code base to work with), you are very welcome to contribute! I hope you understand. Nevertheless, thanks a lot for your offer. :-)
