Improved efficiency of noise program compilation
For the layman person that just plays and enjoys the game, would this happen to mean that map generation is a little faster?

How do you just play and enjoy the game? I need to know the mechanics to enjoy it. I think I spend as much time playing the game as I do theoretical calculations on a spreadsheet. All this to make sure I enjoy the most out of the game.

Auto-update is failing for me again.

factorio-current.log says

Code: Select all

Going to that exact get-download url gives me a 403, as expected. Replacing <private> with my token (from player-data.json) redirects to https://dcdn.factorio.com/updates/core- ... 1558022799, which is 404.

Same here : update failed.

Do we have to download the game from the store or do we wait for a server fix ?

Sounds more like "faster program starting" and "less annoying to mod" to me.

The updater is failing on MacOS. In addition, the .dmg has no mountable file system (i.e. dmg is corrupted).

First of all, thanks for your work guys! :D

I also had some problems first with latest update. It would give me "update failed" a few times but then it got through after a while.

I haven't tried the updater, but I'm seeing the same problem with the .dmg on macOS 10.14.5.

Unable to download a proper DMG from the direct download link for macOS either.

looks like they found a game breaking bug and took down the auto update until a fix for it is ready, keep using 17.39

I'm perfectly happy to keep using 17.39 for now, but has there been any specific announcement that 17.40 has been retracted? In the past when they've had to pull a released version, they've removed the links from the download page and the corresponding post from this forum, as with 0.17.27. 0.17.40 is still present in both places, though.

Probably 0.17.41. I am guessing it will be very soon since some users can't load their games apparently.

While that would be a reasonable interpretation, my guess is that it's somewhat more specific than that. I would imagine the noise functions that the game uses for map generation in the base game are written in highly optimized C++. So, this would cover the noise functions that are used by mods for map generation. So, things link RSO and Alien Biomes, though other mods possibly too. I'm not sure though, because I've never play with that part of Factorio's modding API.
