You guys are awesome, how much caffeine do you guys consume to keep up your enthusiasm in chasing bugs?

Wonder, how many "may not build/remove things if that would lead to fluid mixing" violations boskid will have to find until they decide that adopting automatic pipe clamping from Picker Pipe Tools is easier to get right for all the edge cases.

20% of bug reports are realted to Cheat Engine?!
All the classic cheats are easy to do by modding already.
So what do people try to achieve when using it with Factorio?

My guess is that they want to get the achievements.

Not 20%, 1 in 20, so 5%

Holy cow that map they made is amazing!

Makes me kinda hope that once the campaign is introduced that we'll also get all kinds of decorative objects with it.
It could really improve the flair and ambience of the game

Suggestion: Add higher tier "Boskid repair pack" with greater capacity and possibly faster repair speed.

I'm also very surprised that in a game, where you can change or fine tune almost anything without problems, using console, LUA or mod, someone using Cheat Engine. Maybe they are too lazy or do not understand that in Factorio, one can change almost everything from a console?

Face yourself

Cheat Engine has been used for a very long time, thus some people stick to what they're used to even if there's something easier.

I've got a friend who's similar in that they use CE until they learn later that there's a console available. Likely an old habit of theirs.

They want to cheat, but not lose Steam Achievements.

Or, a device that puts a map alert when an object in range is currently damaged.

Because game internal achievements aren’t enough :?:
No need to understand this, I assume.

Protip: Just change the base mod files. As far as i know steam doesn't enforce hash checks by itself.
Also doesn't cheat engine even support lua scripting? Which would mean habitual users aren't completely unlikely to know some lua already.

I would vote for a "Boskid tower", It automaticly repair nearby entities, half the speed of a normal repair pack, effects do not stack. It is a 6*4 building with a 50° range of 20 tiles. It needs electricity and lubricent, cuz sometimes one also needs to oil things (this is not an idea of an extra turret speed, just more logical sence). This is just an sugestion I came up with, but I think if we want to discuss this further we need to move to our own forum :D.

Boskid bugs, for anyone else who is interested to see the list: search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&aut ... =firstpost

I like the ideas that people posted about a honorary mention of Boskid in the game, something related to damage or repairs. That would be a really cool thing to do :)

I was thinking, we have enrichment named after the mad scientist Kovarex, and Boskid finds ways to break things, so naming damage technology after Boskid would make sense. Maybe Uranium ammo -> Boskid ammo? Or Boskid technology, since the effect is an ammo recipe that uses uranium I guess it's clear what it does?

My girlfriend just suggested the turrets could be named Boskit Turrets, because they shoot all the alien "bugs" :lol:
