Cool! Thanks for the update.

I think you mean "permanence" instead of "perminance".
Also:
Now, when many players will try to join at the same time, they will pe placed in a queue

If you want to launch a massive server, you could try to tell it in a FFF, More players will be there

Isn't that what they literally just did‽


Also, @Klonan, I hope you tweak the icon for the Assemble Mk3, the gears on this one are... not functional.

Otherwise, great stuff, as usual.

Normally I'd say this is excessive nitpicking, but this is a game about process automation engineering after all.

Are these icons the final ones? Because I don't like that they are so abstract. I don't think they blend in with the gamestyle since they are so crisp. Maybe add some slight shading?

This level of nitpicking could be normal. But not when here is such a critical issue as fluid physics.
I'm going to complain about it a lot. =/

I think you SHOULD change tech tree a bit;

You can unlock construction bots tech before you can actully construct them, because they need batteries which require yet higher tech.

Things like these seem an obvious candidate to such changes, even moreso because they confuse new players.

Constuction robotics requires Robotics which requires Battery.

Nice and short FFF.

Looking forward to the result of the multiplayer test!

Maybe silly question, but why are the icons of the green, blue and purple inserters in the toolbar so vague whereas the yellow inserter is nice and sharp?

I'll guess that's because these are the ones that have been converted for the test. In fact, you're seeing (in the yellow one) the new level of detail that will come to all icons when rendered thus.

Oh, that's great news then! Can't wait for the other icons to get sharper and clearer. :D

Yeah, tha's what I'm saying - to get batteries you need MUCH MORE set up than fits green science.

Or did they actually change that? Seem's like you can get batteries with green sicence now?

It's still wrong anyway, such a huge factory production set-up does not belong in green science pack.

Batteries and Bots were a green science tech since at least 0.15.
And you know it well, as you've participated in the discussion about Green/Blue techs and Oil before :

I don't understand why people complain about mk3 assembler. The setup successfully prevents unwanted rotation of each axis.
