I may have found a bug. Linux headless server with seed set to null, always generates the same map.

Goodbits server in public list has it.

MrGoodbits, I was able to generate this map with a seed of '0', is your setting null or an empty string such as ""?

edit: just looked at the json example, looks like the code is taking it as a literal 0 and not randomizing

MrGoodbits
isn't that what you want? if you SET a value? if you leave it empty it will be random.

Null or 0 == not empty

The example settings file says to set to null for random.

This last update changed a lot in my current game. The physical size of my boiler more than tripled and since I had 13 of them in a small space that would now fit only 3 upgraded boilers, all of my electricity network went down and I am forced to physically change all of my boilers to produce steam, reroute the steam, etc. Also, many of my factories now require different inputs, etc.

Does anyone know why this update affected my saved games? I would like to think that it is a glitch, that the developers didn't just push entire changes out to the network that were not backward compatible...but it destroyed the game that I had invested over 40 hours on just as I was about to finish and now it looks like I will have to start from the beginning.

Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is this the new stable? Game is asking if I want to upgrade now. But I don't see any announcements.

15.31 is now the latest stable version. I assume you had played 0.14 previously, you can role back to that version by choosing the beta 0.14.23 in steam, but the 0.14 will not receive updates anymore so you will have to switch to 0.15 eventually. If you need further info please open a thread in the tech help section.

Factorio is in Alpha, and savegame-disrupting changes are to be expected. Be thankful, many Alpha games get changes to them that break saves entirely. At least you can fix this one with a few minor changes to your factory.

0.15 changed a lot, but it is well worth it!!! It adds atomic power, makes research more challenging, adds the endless research, and gives you a lot to do after you launched your first rocket.

Talking about the new boilers: You now have a precise ratio of 1 boiler for every 2 generators.

This is more in regards to FFF#200 and talk of the Mod Portal overhaul...

Please add an indicator/filter for the mod publisher to indicate "MP Safe" (or not)....

Personaly i don't care if our factory is broken, it won't take much time to repair it, and compared to new functionnality, it worth it !

Thank you for this big release ! all the changes are awesome, every one of them !

Keep up the good work, company like your's are exceptionnal.

A note for people like me that just got this release (that stay on stable), don't forget to put your graphical setting in high in the options (it's a new parameter).

Should also pass on the note that it used to be that boilers hooked in series with steam engines, now steam engines go off to the side, and boilers still go in series end to end.... so typical setups will be passing cold water to steam engines :)

It's a shame that the security vulnerability fixed in this version wasn't mentioned in the list of fixes, so that players were aware how important this update is. Couple this RCE with the still-unfixed case of a Factorio update in Windows running the game as administrator, and a rather nasty situation could have happened.

Please also add an filter to hide al incompatible mods.
Now you have al those mods with no version number, that you can't use.

Also some mods require depenancy's, would be handy if there installed automaticly.

Yeah, like Bob's mods for example ... if i install the base mod, the overview should give me hints which mods are also required / recommended

OK - I had a nice mod aim to launch my spaceship (not the rocket - but it was a post end game aim) that I can't now complete as it doesn't work with the new Factorio.

Sorry - unless I miss something, I have no choice under Steam to stop this from updating ... and to me, I fail to see why I am forced to "update" ...

My bases are huge - with very large generation areas. I am now forced to fend off aliens whilst re-patching everything to just get power back. Just because boiler size has been changed. Why not add a larger boiler and keep the smaller ones ? ye gods ... it shows lack of care for those who like tinkering with their much older bases (mine pre 0.13).

Plus now I have to abandon my starship aim ... I can't really expect a modder to keep their mod up to date, but I can expect to keep playing the game under an older version.

So - every time I play this game, I fear to see the auto patcher display as I know something will break - and sure, I can restart, but if I dare to add any mods then I am just going to have to expect the game to break when it patches again.

Come on - an option to retain under a sub folder the pre-patched game ? So I can play my 0.15 base or if I want to, decide to move up to 0.15.31 ? For me the gamer to have the choice like I have always had with everything else to patch when I want to patch ? This by far is the MOST infuriating facet of this game ...
