[0.17.60] Flashing unpowered icon makes my eyes very uncomfortable

Post by qegr »

Translated by google :) .

My factory uses power switch control to reduce energy consumption when production is stopped.
But the flashing yellow triangle icon makes me very troubled.
I hope I can turn it off or disable flashing in the interface settings.

thx.

(Still only 0.15-0.16, but shouldn't be too hard to update to 0.17?)

I'd personally love a way to stop the flashing, but have not found one. I'm very sensitive to that sort of "change", which is very distracting to me. So, a constant icon rather than a flashing one, would definitely be easier for me.

The power switch might be deprecated:

It s expected that everything has power at all times.
The thread was about unpowered inserters costing UPS.

In an older thread I proved powered down inserters wake up from sleep when items on a belt pass them and never go back to sleep until powered again.
The solutions to this are either to use filter inserters in whitelist mode without a set filter, those will sleep forever until they get a filter, or stop the items from moving past inserters, be it with stopping the belt itself or using a 2 stage power down that first cuts off resource input and once all machines are starved turn off power.

Back to topic:
Removing the flashing for a small static warning would look nicer.
Satisfactory does this in a very immersive way with lights on the machine itself. For Factorio this could combine this request with the very popular bottleneck mod.
