While you are at releasing stable version...
Have you though about reading missing constructions items from roboport?
On the other hand, building big multi-combinator machine for that purpose is much more factorioristic.

why is no one complaining about pipes registering liquid types before liquid is even in it. its diving me crazy. sometimes with the liquid flow from one input line to the other even though they are not connect. it took me 30mins to place down 15 chemical plants because the liquid mixing error keeps popping up and im sure my pipes are correct but the have registered liquid on the pipes even though its empty. i rather fluid mixing if this is the alternative

If you've double-checked and your pipes are correct, please post a bug report with a screenshot and save showing the issue.

Please correct / rewrite your post, Airat9000. It's very hard to read.

I understood him very well. That's my beef with the current pathway to "1.0" -- They SAY they want to be at a 1.0 "stable" "release" version soon, but the changes they have been making lately (including, obviously, the complete GUI rewrite and the completely silly "player/character" change) without a doubt show that they are still VERY MUCH in an early alpha stage.

The problem is that these experimental releases are so high quality and stable for almost everyone that a lot of people switch to the experimental branch who really should stay on stable.

I mean you need to actively reconfigure steam / in-game settings etc. to even switch to experimental. It does not happen automatically. Experimental is however for people who write mods, alpha/beta test (game and mods) and are suited for this. Experimental is where experiments happen. This may blow up things. If you are not prepared for this, do not be on experimental.

I play experimental since 10.somewhen. I had exactly one time where this became a problem and it was actually just last week the switch between 17.34 to 17.35 on a mulitplayer game where an update somehow caused an issue with YARM mod which took me 10 minutes to resolve myself as the mod was already updated. But if that would have been not resolvable, I had a full backup of the multiplayer server and would have just reverted back to 17.34.

TL;DR: Be prepared on experimental or stay on stable. I'm pretty sure it's only a matter of very few weeks until a 17 stable is coming out if you really want the new features.

Trains were already not fit for purpose without a complex mod and the 0.17 track laying downgrade is inexcusable.

The 0.17 tutorial is awful and not even the same game.

Most of their effort seems to be going into HD graphics (and now remnants) which have zero or negative value in the usual highly zoomed out display state.

The last truly great improvement was probably the priority/filter splitter functionality.

I empathise the confusion. Yesterday I was connecting refineries, and finding breaks in pipelines can be difficult if both ends show the exact same icon (I didn't receive the connection errors). Perhaps if the "expected but not filled" side (e.g., new Refinery/pipebuilding) was only half brightness, or had a ring around it, or some other indicator.

Hmm, Another thought about overlays -- what about if Alt mode (or maybe even mouseover) showed a thin orange arrow at each end of pipe/silos showing the direction of flow (if any. If no flow, no arrow). (I don't see a mod for that yet.)

Problems with changes scale up the more mods you have:
- vanilla only
- QoL mods
- overhaul mods
- combinations of overhaul mods
- random combination of mods, which hardly work together anyway

I would say, it's expectable, but surely not a nice experience.
I usually play on standalone version and make a backup copy before any update.

Sometimes I think, it would be nice, if there's a version between stable and experimental.

BTW: I really like many things introduced with 0.17. Especially the graphic engine which works a lot smoother on my low end card.
