Can we have this for turrets as well, so we may build a rainbow of fiery death to the biters?

Might as well code in a paint gun, and each model has a part of the texture that can be recoloured on the fly

Aw hell, I'd use that! Especially if you can set the color.

I downloaded and installed this 0.17.43. Everything works nice. But I noticed that it brought forward my blueprints from Ver 0.16. Ok, but I was using 0.17.4 previously, and a lot of the blueprints from v16 was now not working correctly. So, since I had installed this as a separate install, I went to get the blueprints from 0.17.4 and found that it was uninstalled. Further, I then found that my v16 was uninstalled. A lot of work went into those versions and I don't appreciate this update automatically uninstalling my stuff. All my revised v17 blueprints, and now all the maps that I had created.

when you update, it creates a backup from your blueprints (blueprint-storage-backup.dat). It would never come to your save folder anyway, so maybe user error on the maps?

Convinced my friend to buy Factorio and then watched him play the campaign. It all went fairly smoothly until he decided to move on and start a freeplay game. Apparently the extreme aggression of the biters in the campaign had left a deep impression because he went through the menus and tried to set peaceful on his first game. Took some convincing and I got him to turn peaceful off but he still went through the options and nerfed the biters hard.

The campaign gives the wrong first impression as to the threat biter pose in freeplay.
