Version 0.17.0

Post by FactorioBot » Tue Feb 26, 2019 5:13 pm

  • This is the first experimental release after a year and 3 months. We tested it and found it to be quite fine, but there most probably are dangerous bugs hidden, so backup your saves and be careful.
  • You need to explicitly opt in to 0.17.x beta to play 0.17 on steam, outside steam, we have a problem with the updater, so you need to redownload the game if you want to test the experimental.
  • Any GUI not mentioned in the finished screens (Quick bar, Train Schedule, Load/Save Game, Settings, Map Generator, Research, Mods) wasn't addressed by the gui rewrite yet. As long as it is generally functional, we don't accept bug reports about its minor bugs or visual issues.
  • Enjoy the 0.17 :)

Major Features
  • New quickbar (more in Gui section)
  • Added shortcut bar that allows quick access to certain game features, such as toggling alt mode, creating blueprints, or turning off personal roboport
  • New gui style with final version of some parts of the GUI (More in Gui section)
  • Added clipboard functionality. (Control + C, Control + X, Control + V activate appropriate tools) Shift + mouse wheel allows to cycle the clipboard history.
  • Added undo functionality (Control + Z). Supports manual entity building and by blueprints and manual mining and usage of deconstruction planner.
  • Reworked the Map Editor so it's now part of the standard game and can be toggled at will using the '/editor' command.
  • Support for mod synchronisation when joining multiplayer game. Works as long as the used mods are on the mod portal.
  • Fight changes. Enemy projectiles are dodgeable and slowdown/damage the target over time. They also leave splashes on ground that have the same effect.
  • Rich text tags. These tags can be used almost anywhere: Chat, station names, save names, custom ui and probably a few places we didn't think of. They allow changing color, font, images and location/blueprint/armor/station/locomotive linking through chat. (More in features)
  • Fluid mixing prevention. Actions that fail as they would lead to fluid mixing (like building a pipe, changing recipe, rotating etc.) produce an error message as flying text.
  • Replaced First steps campaign with Introduction campaign, available from the Start campaign menu.
  • Trains can be blueprinted and deconstructed.
  • Trains can be given temporary stations (by Control+clicking the map). Temporary station is automatically removed once the train departures from it.
  • Train stops without conditions work as waypoints. (the train doesn't stop at those)
  • Added Passenger present and Passenger not present wait condition to the train conditions.
  • If building of entity/blueprint fails, the reason of it is pinged as flying text.
  • Map pings. Ctrl+Alt+click on the map to show a ping in all players maps at that location.
  • Basic image tags format is [img=<image path>] where image path can use item, entity, technology, recipe, item-group, fluid tile, virtual signal achievement or utility icon. For example [img=item/iron-plate] or [img=item.iron-plate]. The "." instead of "/" usage is to make it usable in save names. Additionally, items/entities/technologies/recipe/item-group/fluid/tile/virtual signal or achievement can be linked directly by [item=iron-plate], [recipe=iron-plate], or [entity=small-biter] to provide tooltip for the appropriate object.
  • Blueprint/special item tags. Shift clicking the icon in chat will create an item and place it in the cursor. Format is [special-item=blueprint string], eg: [special-item=0eNp1jtEKwjAMRX9l5rnCxkShvyIi3YxboU1Lm4lj9N9N54sv5iFwL/eeZIPBLRiTJQa9gR0DZdDXDbKdyLjq8RoRNFhGDwrI+Ko4GcoxJD4O6BiKAksPfIPuyk0BElu2+CXtYr3T4gdMEvjHUBBDllqgelVQrYJVdqnE/br+eVaBM1ITb0bnQvNMwTc8YzPOhiZ0YTpI5oUp78BL33YnmbY/l/IBb4pSQQ==]. These tags also work with deconstruction and upgrade planners.
  • Map ping tags: Created by shift-clicking the ground/map when the chat is open. Format is [gps=x,y], eg [gps=10,30] will show a map ping in all players maps at location 10,30. Clicking the icon in chat will open the map on the specified location.
  • Font tags: Format is [font=debug-mono]mono text[/font].
  • Color tags: Format is [color=1,0,0]red text[/font]
  • Fast replacing pipes by pipes to ground similar to underground belts.
  • When multiple versions of the same mod are installed you can select which version you want to use.
  • The sync mods with save/multiplayer game feature can now sync mod startup settings as well as mods.
  • Added support to import and export permissions.
  • Closing opened items (blueprint books/armor) now remembers what GUI you previously had open.
  • Filter inserters can be set to whitelist or blacklist filters.
  • Added belt immunity equipment.
  • Added upgrade planner.
  • Added steam networking support for steam users.
  • Added RGB support for Logitech hardware.
  • Robots can blow up cliffs.
  • Wave defense scenario has been reworked to support multiple rounds and a procedurally generated map.
  • Added a research queue that becomes available after the player has finished the game by launching a rocket with satellite.
Minor Features
  • Warning icon for automated trains that are out of fuel.
  • Added 250 and 1000 hours precision intervals into statistics.
  • Using deconstruction planner is incorporated in the latency hiding.
  • Changed personal roboports so they won't send construction robots if you're driving in a vehicle that they can't keep up with or if in a train in automatic mode.
  • Added an option to ignore mouse events when using accessibility zoom feature on macOS.
  • Added support to change multiplayer config settings runtime.
  • Added support to edit the whitelist, banlist, and admin list when hosting a multiplayer game.
  • Added the Admin GUI (openable through /admin in the console) to manage multiplayer players.
  • Landfill can be built by robots and be included in blueprints.
  • Blueprint items taken from blueprint library will not move to player inventory when Q is pressed, but can be moved to any slot explicitly. (Same as with clipboard items)
  • When selecting any item to the cursor from some of the player inventories. As long as the item is being held, hand icon is shown on the slot it was taken from. The hand prevents any other item to be inserted into the slot as long as the player cursor isn't cleared.
  • When holding radar in cursor, area covered by existing radars is also highlighted on minimap.
  • Configurable (in gui), the count of rolling stocks shown in the train visualization.
  • Added two levels of shallow water tiles (only placed by map editor, not generated). Enemies and vehicles can travel over shallow water.
  • New graphics for:
  • accumulator
  • biters, spitters, worms, spawners
  • chests
  • electric poles and substation
  • map edge transitions
  • rocket silo
  • transport belts, underground belts, splitters and transport belt circuit connector
  • trees
  • turrets (gun, flamethrower and laser)
  • walls and gates
  • laser turrets, personal laser defense and distractor robots now use new laser beams.
  • Highlighting inserters that would interact with selected/previewed entity.
  • Showing shield bars above health bar for relevant entities.
  • Single vertical pipe is shorter.
  • New final versions of several important GUI screens (Quick bar, Train Schedule, Load/Save Game, Settings, Map Generator, Research, Mods) Other screens than the mentioned ones (more than 100) have inconsistencies and will be updated in future minor updates.
  • The quickbar is no longer an inventory, instead it can only hold shortcuts it items in inventory or blueprint library. The quickbar now has 10 pages of shortcuts. Player inventory increased by 20 slots to compensate. Toolbelt research further increases the player inventory.
  • In the map, station and tag selection is now visualized by the standard Factorio selection box graphics instead of highlighting.
  • Added interface option: When selecting a buildable item from the quickbar or when using the pipette tool, if you have no items of that type, a ghost will be placed in the cursor instead.
  • When something is not buildable (manual or blueprint building), the reason of why it isn't buildable is shown as flying text over the cursor when the build is attempted.
  • Only compatible results of a furnace are manually placeable in the result slot. (Mainly to avoid confusion of new players)
  • Modernized and optimized rendering backend. The game now uses DirectX 11 or OpenGL 3.3 Core and requires DirectX 10 class graphics card.
  • DirectX backend doesn't keep backup of all sprites in RAM anymore.
  • Added high quality texture compression to reduce amount of video memory consumed by the game and increase overall rendering performance.
  • Added texture streaming so that adding more sprites does not necessarily increase GPU requirements.
  • Improved game startup performance when using a large amount of technologies with deep dependency trees (it's now 67,000 times faster).
  • Optimized rendering of logistic overlay when zoomed in to map. (60659)
  • Optimized rendering of turret ranges when zoomed in to map. (58991)
  • Resource generation changed significantly: The starting area contains only iron, copper, coal and stone, in very predictable amounts. Uranium and oil are excluded from the starting area. Resource generation settings now have a much more dramatic effect. Increased the number of steps for each setting. Ore patches are slightly less frequent but richer. There will be a more balanced amount of resources within a large enough region. Many other small tweaks.
  • Biter generation changed significantly: Biter richness slider removed, biter placement is only configured by size and frequency settings. Biter generation settings now have a much more dramatic effect. Increased the number of steps for each setting. Biter bases will increase in size, frequency and number of worms depending on the distance from player spawn. Worm size increases depending on the distance from player spawn. Small biter bases are now closer to the player spawn. At large distances from player spawn, biter base frequency is lower than before but biter bases are larger. Other small tweaks.
  • Terrain generation changed significantly: Water is generated as large lakes instead of swamps. Tile generation improved. Tile placement respects biomes better. More predictable cliff placement. Better controls in the map generator GUI for water, tiles and cliffs.
  • New map terrain type selectable: Island. Launch the rocket with only a limited amount of resources available on the map.
  • Default resolution of the game is now 1920x1080.
  • Increased player reach from 6 to 10.
  • Inserters are putting science packs to the lab even when there is no research in progress or when the research doesn't need that particular pack.
  • Default_request_amount removed in all places where it was used. Default logistic request is 1 stack, unless changed by the setting "Default request is 1".
  • All personal equipment stack sizes changed to 20.
  • Placing a tile will now clear any tile ghosts at that position. (59721)
  • It is allowed to use unicode characters in save names.
  • Recipes that have more ingredients than the assembling machine allows are now shown as red instead of not present when selecting the recipe.
  • When the "Made in" row is shown in the recipe tooltip, player icon is added to the list when it is craftable by player.
  • Increased ghost time to live of ghosts from 1 hour to 1 week.
  • Since the catalysts have been tweaked, the kovarex enrichment process can now be used together with productivity module.
  • Tile construction jobs are being handled by robots separately from entity building jobs, to prevent entity ghosts not being built due to large number of tile ghosts.
  • Switched key bindings from key codes to scan codes. This solves an issue with bad default key bindings on layouts that are not similar to US QWERTY (ie. AZERTY).
  • Armor no longer uses durability and all armor now has a stack size of 1.
  • Manually putting modules into machines that are requesting modules from the logistic network will reduce the modules requested.
  • Increased maximum train stop length from 50 to 100 characters so it can fit at least 3 tags in most cases.
  • Items consumed by hand crafting are counted in item production statistics.
  • Added --disable-migration-window command-line option to disable the "migrated content" gui.
  • Removed tile properties debug overlay.
  • Command-line map preview generator now shows biter nests.
  • Items sent in a rocket are counted in item production statistics. (62606)
  • Removed pickaxes and replaced them with research effects.
  • Removed Wood from the game (And raw wood renamed to Wood).
  • Added rotation smoothing to biters.
  • Chests and wooden power poles are no longer usable as fuel.
  • Burner efficiency is set to 100% for all entities and fuel value is halved to simplify calculations. This should not change game balance.
  • Removed the hardness/mining power mechanics, we just have a mining speed and mining time now.
  • Manual mining speed times of various entities will differ a bit, but probably not in a noticeable way.
  • Stone and other ore mining speed has been unified to be 1 (apart uranium ore, which is 2 and shown as 200% mining time)
  • Mining drill speed is now shown in the form of <x>/s (0.25/s for burner mining drill, 0.5/s for electric mining drill), the relative mining speeds of the mining machines have been decreased a little so the numbers are rounded nicely (0.28 -> 0.25 and 0.525 -> 0.5).
  • Renamed the whitelist and banlist to server-whitelist and server-banlist.
  • Added server-adminlist that's used to determine which people are admins when hosting any multiplayer game. This is synced both ways when hosting any game.
  • Removed "admins" from the multiplayer server-settings file - they're now handled through server-adminlist.
  • "Z" (drop item) will drop single items into what ever entity is selected instead of only dropping on the ground.
  • Stickers can by applied onto cars and tanks now.
  • Changed the chat gray-out mechanism. It always greyed-out after 5 seconds to 70% alpha, and then stayed depending on the setting. Now it stays 100% and only greys out away in the last 2 seconds.

Train stops without conditions work as waypoints. (the train doesn't stop at those)

From what I recall from FF if you give it a wait fo few secs condition it will stop.

Time to load up new version and see if RSO still works (or maybe it's not needed anymore?) :D

Finally! I can place landfills with recursive blueprints. Well when the mod is updated at least. Now I will be able to automatically expand to get those extra-rich ore fields!

Updated installation linux gives me

Code: Select all

File __base__/campaigns/beta/description.json not found (No such file or directory)
Guess I can fix it from the download, but you should know that this happened.

Edit: I don't think downloading 1,1Gig of full game is worth one json file, can I get it standalone somehow? :D

Edit 2: Removing the beta (and demo, just in case) directories from the campaigns folder made it start for now.
