Version 0.18.2

Post by FactorioBot »

Graphics
  • Improved map colors by adding specific colors to beacons, pipes, heat pipes, roboports and steam engines.
Sounds
  • New or updated sound effects include:
  • Pump, pumpjack, boiler, heat pipe, offshore pump, substation.
  • Logistic and construction robots, roboport.
  • Train.
  • Rocket takeoff sequence.
  • Car and tank (pitch scaling adjusted to sound more natural).
  • All transport belts, splitters, inserters, assembling machines, power switch.
  • Added some UI sounds that were missing.
  • Shotgun, small explosions.
  • Entity destroyed alert.
  • New sound tech includes:
  • Listener position set to centre of screen by default. This will allow you to hear what you see even when in map mode.
  • The ability to turn off the Doppler effect in Lua, used for the Substation so far.
  • environment-audible-distance setting increased to 30 so you can hear entities a bit further away.
  • zoom-volume-coefficient changed so you can hear more of the world when you zoom out. This will help with combat and give a greater sense of the overall factory.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed that pressing escape in some log-in screens lead to blank screen or incorrect states. (80282)
  • Fixed enemy walls should not render as connected to ghosts, since enemy ghosts are not visible. (80323)
  • Fixed undo on self-looped combinator ghosts not restoring wires. (77347)
  • Fixed achievement cards not showing description when descriptions are turned off in interface settings.
  • Fixed that inserters from 0.17 save files could end up teleporting items into/from trains. (80276)
  • Fixed that the sync mods with save GUI wouldn't size correctly. (80389)
  • Fixed that thrown capsules could end up broken forever if thrown at exactly the right tick. (80395)
  • Fixed crash when using "create-entity" trigger effect item to create an artillery flare. (80405)
  • Fixed map view night LUT. (80319)
  • Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when a biter, who was in previous versions of the game aggroed by a player in a car or tank, was aggroed again. (80326)
  • Fixed crash when joining a game through Steam without having previously logged in.
Modding
  • Migrating loaders between loader and loader-1x1 will maintain the loader type (input/output). (80384)
Scripting
  • Added LuaSurface::create_particle().
  • Added LuaEntityPrototype::inserter_pickup_position and inserter_drop_position read.

So it seems that this change added specific map_color values to those entities. And that in turn seems to mean that changing friendly_map_color or enemy_map_color will do nothing now. Am I correct and is it supposed to be like that?

Thanks for all the hard work! But please, please, please let me disable the transport belt sound effect. It makes the game unplayable.

Any chance to geat old sounds back beside to downgrade because its not an solution because sooner or later that bad sounds will be part of game. So I hope you will not implement that annoying sounds. Factories, warning sound and especially sond of belts. Anlso the inserters sound was better.

Thank you for your hard work! But can we have an option to disable new sound effects?
New belt sound effects are really annoying. I can't play more than 15 minutes with it. I've got headache from it... :cry:

I wonder if some are confusing the belt sound with the inserter sound? To me the belt sound is a very gentle white noise whereas the inserter sounds like knife being sharpened on a stone which I don't like. I like the new assembler sounds. Edit: At first I only listened to the yellow belts/ yellow inserters. After listening to the faster belts and inserters it appears (at least to me) that the faster belt sounds are a bit more annoying than the yellow belts but the faster inserter sounds are less annoying than the yellow inserters.

After seeing all of these reactions, I fired up a map and walked around to the various items (belts, inserters, etc). Sure the sounds are different, but they seem fine. The belts are more subtle than before if anything, and the sound scales with the belt speed as well.

Of course everyone has different tastes, but there is a certain element to the new transport belt sound that has a little higher pitch and it is very unpleasant.

I'm gonna have to agree with other people here, the new transport belt sounds have a very high pitch screech in the background which makes it unbearable. This needs to be removed or I will be forced to play with factorio muted for the rest of time.

Round 2 of the mod breaking stuff. But on the positive, we were warned, and I'm glad it is happening now in this release cycle, earlier rather then later.

I very much like the majority of the new sounds, especially the new roboport and bot stuff.

But the red and blue belts are deep, deep into dentist's drill territory. Have already modded them out. The yellow belt is tolerable.

Just walked my factory the past hour with maxed out enviromental sounds; music, wind, etc turned down. I do like the vast majority of the sound reworks, e.g. the rocket launch, with the much more "massive" feeling silo doors and all of the offshore, heatpipe and turbine alterations. My nuclear power plants do sound now like proper heavy industry.
As stated before all robot related stuff is refreshing and the possibility to differentiate between different tiers of inserters, splitters ... is quite nice. Personally I find the new express belt pitch okay, but also can comprehense why it could be on the more unbearable side for some.
My only complaint: the new entity destroyed chim feels quite off. Of all its iterations I did like the pinging and claxon alerts from the times of the blue power ranger most.

Is it just me, or is there some indentation missing for the items in the "Sounds" list?

All the new sounds are absolutely amazing.
I liked the previous Assembling Machine 3 more, though.
