I don't think that the devs would really consider any of the many things I would have ideas on how to "generalize" or "improve" them because if they really did they would have done it that way a long time ago (or they skipped the ideas for other reasons they never mentioned and they are not really obligated to explain why they did some things they did), because some of these things I suggested at various points or have been discussed multiple times over, like for example the belt-thing.Gertibrumm wrote:I love these ideas!! call it "Improvement Everywhere" and make another thread on it ^^
I would love to elaborate a bit
Also if they really considered all of my ideas... it might as well not be called Factorio anymore because I think kovarex and his team have their own vision on how the game should look like which is totally right so, even if it is not to everyone's liking or leaves room for improvements.
That said I would code my own game with a similar, but yet different theme or write a mod but - and that's my biggest weakness - I don't really have the endurance do such a monstrous project despite my bazillion of ideas... I'm more the think-tank and problem-solver type... I'm easy with developing vast concepts, but I don't really want to be the guy who has to implement all that... I'm not a hatchet man, I'm not mentally stable enough to endure the ugly, dirty work that is necessary at times. Some may find fun in the programming part, but I'm more a designer, not a programmer, though I have to a certain degree of knowledge about programming.
... Nah deleting the residue fluids is wasteful and an obvious nasty solution that begs for redemption or a coup de grâce. Might as well not enable recipe switching for that kind of recipes then if it boils down to an ugly solution as "delete resources".Gertibrumm wrote:residue fluids inside assemblers nowadays get deleted. Is it possible to pump fluids out of the assembler when it is not active? Ill have to experiment..
Also I don't really know if one can pump fluids out of an assembler/chemplant when its not active, but I believe not... I think once it's inside the fluid is inside.
