Rename "vehicle acceleration" in fuel tooltips

Post by teemu »

Since the fuel also affects top speed, the name becomes somewhat misleading. I suggest to rename it "vehicle speed".

Edit: oh hey look, I'm a yellow inserter now. I can stop eating coal.

I agree.

You are actually still consuming coal, just not directly, only indirectly through your power plant.

It affects both top speed and acceleration.
Showing both would be better.

Ever thought about 1. SolarPower? 2. NuclearPower
If setup properly both don't need coal.

Who says you were eating coal in the first place? Maybe you ate rocket fuel or something.
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

You could say humans also eat coal indirectly because the coal plants produce power for ovens and microwaves.

[ick] Moved to implemented. The tooltip now also states the "Vehicle to speed"
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.
- A reminder for me and all who read what I write
