Reactors at max temperature (>900 C) explode like atomic bombs if destroyed.
Great for nuclear mines, but there is no real meltdown mechanic implemented in Vanilla.

  • Updated the window of creating/editing blueprint.
Why are removed items are not displayed in a new section below the component list? There is enough space to do this. Why they are moved to the last position with a value of zero and not greyed out?

  • Updated the window of creating/editing blueprint.
So big blueprints are now just cut off? Why not just add scrollbars if they exceed a certain size?

Also the way the name editing works is (and has always been) really weird. Any other change to the blueprint is only saved if you click Confirm and discarded otherwise. But the name has it's own save button, which saves even if you don't click confirm and if you don't click the button next to name after editing it it's not saved after hitting confirm. That's just so unintuitive. Why not just make the name an input field which just saves with Confirm (or is discarded without) like everything else?

Nice change overall, but comes at the cost of visibility of horizontal BPs. Maybe a collapsable side panel for whole window preview might be a nice addition.

Also, second that!

Did something change about sound? I don't remember there being this much bass when placing, nor do I remember having to zoom out the camera to stop my ears from hurting.

Probably a bug.

Yea, it was a leftover from previous way of how it worked. This is changed for the next release together with the additional changes (mainly being able to edit blueprints directly in the BP library)

What about being able to update an existing blueprint so you can keep the name and icons?

I'm loving the 'Drop an upgrade planner to modify the blueprint' feature!

Now, just add some scroll bars and/or zooming for the large BPs... ;)

That feature existed for ages.
You can even use an upgrade planner on a whole blueprint book.

That is part of the plan. it is not only about saving the icons and name, but not having to delete the old version, not having to put the new version into the old place, and not having to update all the shortcuts from quickbar.

This would be such a relief. How many times I‘ve acquired a blueprint and just after adjusting icons and renaming it, discovered a flaw in the build.

Inserters are now up to 50% slower

Post by AntiElitz »

TL;TR Inserters are now up to 50% slower

"Reverted optimisation that caused inserters picking up items from belts to be slower."

I do think the performance consequences of this change have been underestimated. My saves runs about 2% slower on average now on my setup.
In an extreme case I was even able to create a save that runs about 50% slower on 18.9 compared to 18.8 (results below)

I would highly suggest to find an alterntive method to fix the inserter speed.


Setup:
Intel i9 9900k
GSkill Trident Z 16GB, 3600MHz CL15
Radeon RX Vega 56 GPU
Samsung 970 EVO, 1TB


Testing:
Performance has been meassured with --benchmark.
saves have been migrated to the specific game version before testing
I created a .bat file with the following sequence:
--benchmark "0.18.9.zip" --benchmark-ticks 2000 //warmup cycle results ignored
--benchmark "0.18.8.zip" --benchmark-ticks 2000 //warmup cycle results ignored
--benchmark "0.18.9.zip" --benchmark-ticks 10000
--benchmark "0.18.8.zip" --benchmark-ticks 10000


Results:
test0.zip : 2.5% slower
0.18.8 : 42.885 sec
0.18.9 : 43.962 sec
This is a bit UPS optimized map mostly using direct insertion and trying to not pick from a belt

test1.zip : 1.7% slower
18.8: 9.034 sec
18.9: 9.189 sec
This is a savegame from a finisched default settings speedrun, representing commen player layouts

test2.zip : 1.5% slower
18.8: 106.222 sec
18.9: 107.774 sec
This is a savegame from a finisched 100% multiplayer speedrun mostly using direct insertion and trying to not pick from a belt

test4.zip : 43.1% slower
18.8: 51.385 sec
18.9: 73.546 sec
This is a savegame to show of the edgecase

definitely a regression, and other than the takeaway that math is satan, you are spending way too much time in validity checks.

the infinity chests are stupidly inefficient, you should use them only to populate some ore onto all of the belts and then quick-replace them with steel chests or wooden boxes.

doing this improves results:

I like the new look of the blueprint window, and I am looking forward to seeing what Kovarex talks about in this thread implemented.

I just realised an easy fix for this,

In the next verison, really cheap (such as belts) will scale up the cost and amount they give:

So now for instance with belts, you can buy an entire stack with a single right click.
