+1
Their attention to details is exceptional. So exceptional in fact that they sometimes seem to underestimate how much of an effect these minor features, bugfixes and modding additions can have.
Mods: Shortcuts for 1.1, ick's Sea Block, ick's vanilla tweaks
Tools: Atom language pack
Text quickly seems cold and unfriendly. Be careful how you write and interpret what others have written.

Major features are entire game systems--collections of mechanics. Much like the no-sales policy, integer pricing, and staying on alpha versions for so long...Factorio keeps things real rather than trying to merely look or sound impressive. Solid foundations all around. :)

I wish all game developers and studios were as comprehensive with bug fixing and releasing patch notes as you are !

Do NOT post bug reports in the release topic. See 3638 instead.

Which disables the smart building. It might be actually possible to have both of the features available also without the line locking, but I'm not sure how useful it would be in practice.

I never used the smart dragging, because of that.

I think it would be useful. I've always wished that you could automatically turn corners when building belts. Similar to how it's done in shapez.io.
Don't forget, you're here forever.

How do you spesify which underground to use for the belt for fast replacing? I'm guessing it's a new field in the transport belt prototype, but it's not listed in the wiki yet, and I don't think it was listed in the new modding interfaces yet.
I don't have access to the game to log serpent block the prototype atm...

New (?) property called "related_underground_belt", string reference to an underground name.

Good point, yes it is the new field "related_underground_belt", which should be probably mentioned somewhere and documented, because mod belts won't have this feature until they also specify this field.

Thx for showing me.
Also, thanks for making me aware that the git exists, should be easier to look up stuff on it instead of the serialization from the wiki (more up to date too :D )

The git is very nice for quickly looking up recent changes if you need to (find the right file then look at the differences in the commit) or you don't have access to your installation of Factorio at the time. I used to mostly look at the big data.raw dump as well but now I more often look at the code for vanilla prototypes directly in the Factorio folder under data/base/prototypes, data/core/prototypes and data/core/lualib. There is all sorts of handy not-having-to-reinvent-the-wheel stuff in there that you don't really appreciate from looking at the serialised dump.

Oh my
I have asked / recomended this few weeks ago, when other belt build improvement was introduced. I am pleased you find it useful as I thought. Thank you.
