Any ideas on how far is the "final" 0.16 ? (aka. if lots of things are still in the pipe, i don't ask for a time)

Nice :) I admit that auto-crash-reporter seems to work great.

Are these going to be used in any base-game features or are they for modding only? (Just curious...)
And will the tooltip for the item/fluid/recipe show that pollution scales for it, or will this information be hidden from the player?

This looks like the stuff bob is working on for his mods...

I made this addition. So it's unlikely the base game will make use of it... though since it is there, you might see one of the devs use it on something in base.

I noticed a minor bug with the blueprint component engine. After I created a blueprint and saved it , it no longer shows any components.

to reproduce:

create a new blueprint with at least 1 component in it
save blueprint into player blueprint book
open that blueprint - components are not listed (example: fact2.png)

More fixes, good stuff. Are the above all fixes done through the auto crash uploading? If so, it would seem to be paying off big time already!

It is a data prototype defined property, but hasn't been added to the runtime prototype API yet

Number of crashes that were fixed without being previously reported in a bug is impressive.

If we had that in 0.1, the game would been final 2 years ago.

Ah. Would be good to add that, then... I wasn't sure if the Lua prototype definition's name was the same, so I wasn't sure if my modifications were being used or not. I did verify this just now with experiments and debug info, but that shouldn't be necessary. :D

All those crashes!
Sounds like you're focussing on getting code out there too quickly and not taking the time for defensive programming. Users HATE HATE HATE crashes but can live with a slightly longer release cycle.
Handle those exceptions; fill in those default: sections and use else! Initialise pointers and zero them after freeing them, then you get an immediate segfault when you try to reuse them instead of something that "works" but kicks you up the arse some weeks/months later.

Oh, and yes as you ask, I am available and looking for software development work. Don't want to relocate though; I'd work remotely from the UK, occasional visits to the office only :-) 12 years exp with C, C++, C#, assembly, GUI design and all sorts of other stuff. Working on Factorio would be a nice change from boring business applications.

I use the same defensive type of programming. I even promote 'simple' structs to classes with constructors, destructors, copy constructors and move constructors by default. Also, most classes have a special 'ShowDebugState' function that shows the run-time state of an object.
Further, every function (except for inlined functions) have exception handling that shows the error and then logs it to a log file in the directory (if the user has rights to write to the disk).
Lastly, error logs and debug logs are automatically uploaded about once a day to a server. That way I can check whether users are crashing or going very slow without reporting it back to me.
