0.10.12

Bugfixes

  • Fixed that it wasn't possible to set a filter.
  • Fixed that fast replacing moved items primary to character, it made upgrading chests and machines not practical. Instead, when fast replacing, the content is always transferred to the new entity, when it can't fit, it transfers to player, and if it can't be moved to the player as well it makes the good old item bomb.
  • The right UI container is slightly larger, so it can contain the robot info without enlarging.
  • The worm turrets are not taken into consideration when deciding enemy expansions.
  • Fixed that enemy expansion candidates were not updated correctly when base was destroyed.
  • Fixed that combat robots were on the map/minimap.
  • Fixed extra mousebuttons over GUI behavior (more).

Balancing

  • The maximum distance of enemy expansion was increased from 5 to 7.

Scripting

  • makefile, takescreenshot and removepath now use logger to report failures, minor fixes in the path verification


0.10.11

Bugfixes

  • Fixed that number keys and enter were sometimes randomly not working (more).
  • Fixed that the pipe to ground was missing the health bar (more).
  • Fixed crash on mouse over ghost of rail signal that was connected to rail destroyed afterwards (more).
  • Fixed that the blueprint preview could go outside the window in some cases (more).
  • Fixed the crash when the selection window of filter slots of cargo wagon is opened while the cargo wagon gets away (or id destroyed) and the filter is selected. Now the crash doesn't occur and the window is closed automatically (more).
  • Show the logistic network areas when the deconstruction tool is in hand (more).
  • Fixed that the long entity names permanently enlarged the sidebar (more).
  • Fixed that downgrading container containing enough items to not fit into the inventory resulted in both the new and old container on the same spot (more).
  • Fixed that wire connection isn't cleared when the wire is put away in god mode (more).
  • Fixed that cursor for wire placing was inconsistent sometimes (more).


0.10.10

There is a problem with numbers/enter hotkeys that can be randomly disabled for the whole game.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed that passive provider chest acted as active provider chest after game load.
  • Fixed that player turrets could be walked through after reconstructed. (more).
  • Fixed that the starting chest in sandbox mode didn't contain some of the items in full stacks.
  • Fixed that the pause game control reset itself to default after every restart.
  • Fixed wrong directory name inside save (it was "currently-saving", now is the same as the save name)
  • Fixed that map2scenario didn't copy locale and script state to the scenario.
  • Fixed crash related to enemy pathfinding.
  • Fixed of wrongly reported amount of items the player got from mining machines/containers (more).
  • Fixed entity icons of defender/distractor/destroyer robots.
  • Fixed that deconstructing transport-belt-to-ground would delete items they held (more).
  • Fixed that deconstructing inserters holding items would delete items they held (more).
  • The notifications of destroyed buildings are created only when someone other than player (or his machines) destroyed the building. This affects player destroying his buildings manually and also land-mine destroying itself on impact.
  • Fixed, that slightly more robots than needed could be send to empty provider chest (more).
  • When unresearching (using script) the toolbelt, the items that can't fit it are inserted back into the player's inventory (more).
  • Recipes changed by mods will be refreshed to original value automatically when mod is removed (more).
  • Fixed crash, when opening save that contained mods that are not already present, that had the active crafting group selected to group presented by the mod (so it is not present anymore), the crash occurred when the crafting menu was opened.
  • Fixed that items were moved into quickbar even when there was already stack of the type in quickbar (currently selected in hand) (more)
  • Fixed the missing check of gun->ammo compatibility when putting the gun there using shift-click or when the gun was crafted (more).
  • Fixed that the visualization radius of throwables (the green circle) wasn't visible when the player was in vehicle (more).
  • Fixed that the inventory didn't get sorted after the container couldn't be mined as all the items couldn't fit the inventory (more).
  • Fixed that when enemy unit was modded to attack by destroying everything including itself crashed the game (more)
  • Fixed that the player mined item event was not called when he got just part of the inventory (more).
  • Fixed that it wasn't possible to start fullscreen game in other than the primary window. There is now settings in config in category [graphics] section: preferred-screen-index. Changing the value changes the display adapter (monitor) that is used. If many people use this feature in the future, we can put it in the graphics settings ingame as well (more).
  • The number input box "consumes" only numeric input, other keys for walking or closing the still works when the field is selected. This is true as long as these are not mapped to numbers, bad luck in that case (more)
  • Fixed that actions made in the last tick before closing the scenario due to error were applied again when different game was opened (more).

Debugging

  • Added option to turn off vertical synchronization of the display (v-sync).
  • Fixed crash when starting game without config file.

GUI

  • Progress bar showing electricity availability is now colored. Green for all required energy available, yellow, more than half, red less than half)

Modding

  • Progress bar style enables to specify different colors for different ranges of values.

Scripting

  • Added game.getchunks() iterator and game.ischunkgenerated(...) and game.player.force.ischunkcharted() methods
  • Pre player mined item event is called really before the player starts to get items from the inventory. Note that the change means, that the event is called even when the mine can eventually fail (not enough inventory to hold all the items). This means, that there might we could also other some other event, that will be called only when the entity is really going to be removed.


0.10.9

Bugfixes

  • Fixed crash when the map exchange string is not valid. If is not valid, text color is changed to red.

  • Fixed various problems of not loadable save when energy source type of entities changed or mod specifying entities with energy source missing. (more).
  • Removed so called "item bomb" effect. It happened When the player tried to a mine chest that contained items that couldn't fit his inventory. Instead of dropping all the items on the ground around (which could be A LOT of items in some cases), the mining just fails, while player gets as many items from the chest as possible.
  • Fixed performance when cancelling large crafting queues and the player has no room to hold the items. This also fixes performance when a loot-enabled entity dies and drops a large amount of loot.
  • Fixed bug when sometimes rail segments were messed up by placing rail signals from blueprint (more). Also blueprint which would place two signals next two each other cannot be placed.
  • Fixed bug when train was self-damaging when driving backwards at the end of the rail (more). This also fixes the resulting crash when the wagon was destroyed.
  • Fixed bug when train with 2 locomotives with opposite directions was not moving backwards when first locomotive had no coal.
  • Fixed that laser turrets were not working when built near chunk boundaries (more).
  • Saving the crc in the replay only once per second, so the replay (and save) size shouldn't grow so fast.
  • Fixed that the beacon rotating animation was sometimes drawn under the beacon (more).
  • Fixed bug where placing assembling machine over assembling machine of the same type could result into repetitive placing (more).
  • Fixed the problem with deconstruction of transport belt with inserter (or something other) putting items on it (more)
  • Fixed that logistic robots were confused when inserting into storage with damaged items (more).
  • Fixed that construction/logistic robots inside a network that was removed weren't re-assigned to the closest logistic network (more).
  • The created effect of entities is not applied in map editor, to avoid too much freezed smoke particles at the same time that slows the render (more).
  • Worms don't collide with the world during the dying animation (more).
  • Worms don't show healthbar and don't regenerate health during the dying animation.
  • Fixed scrolling with sliders in game (more).
  • Fixed bug when some controls didn't work with mouse over the GUI (more) Now they work just fine unless there is a GUI action (i.e. crafting, transfer) with the same binding.
  • Fixed extremely low placement probabilities of worms.
  • Fixed resetting key bindings when changing keyboard layouts (more)
  • Fixed bug when using deconstruction tool broke the replay (more).
  • Fixed that pausing the game closed the opened GUI (more)
  • Fixed that setting more than 65535 value in the logistics request GUI didn't work properly.
  • Fixed that the number in the logistic GUI wasn't set to 0 when the slot was cleared (more).
  • Map map2scenario reports errors correctly instead of crashing.
  • Using map2scenario no longer resets researched technologies and unlocked recipes.
  • Migrations are applied even when using map2scenario.
  • Fixed bug when blueprints were "looting" the items from transport belt to grounds (more).

Debugging

  • Added show_active_chunks debug option, shows which chunks are active on the big map.

Scripting

  • Fixed that caninsert method ignored set filters (more).
  • Fixed that LuaForce:reset didn't reset all the force modifiers. Namely: inserter stack size bonus, logistic slots, quickBarCount, followingRobotsCount, ghost time to live.


0.10.8

Bugfixes

  • Fixed bug on windows when game couldn't be saved


0.10.7

EDIT: This is probably the shortest-lived release we had. There was a serious bug (more) when saving on windows didn't work (and many people wanted to do that). So we have released the hotfix version: http://www.factorioforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5386.

0.10.2

Another (mostly) bugfix release, most of the critical bugs should be resolved, but it is still not a release candidate as there are still obvious bugs in our bug reports.

The automatic update system was messed up in the 0.10.0 and 0.10.1. As a result now it is working only partially: OSX, Linux for 0.10.1 -> 0.10.2 should work, the rest is downloadable from http://www.factorio.com/download/experimental as full package.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed that the underground belt cover did have the same graphics regardless if it was input or output.
  • Fixed that the underground belt direction when building to be connected with different underground didn't have the preview direction correct (both in blueprint and manual building).
  • Fixed wrong blueprint positioning when it contained rail/stations and was created just from ghost entities.
  • Fixed crash when showing tooltip of construction material warning for unbuildable entities.

  • Not showing energy for flying robots that don't use energy (combat robots).
  • Fixed corrupted save problem that occurred when the player had follower robots active, was in a car that had blueprint with roboport in the trunk. Saves corrupted this way from earlier versions are not loadable.

Changes

  • Changed the prioritization of resupplying source of logistic robots. Provider has biggest priority, then storage and the last one is passive provider. This is to avoid uncontrolled filling of storage chests from the leftovers.

Graphics

  • More realistic train light drawing (light cone in the front, red light in the back).

Balancing

  • Wall repair speed is twice the fast.

Translations

  • Added Catalan translation.

0.10.0

Beware of the trailer mod

The trailer mod changes the game properties significantly. If you have it enabled it can cause some very strange behavior in your existing games (different recipes, different consumption, different speeds of vehicles, etc.). Use it only to preview the trailer scenario!

Features

  • Environment sounds. Active machines close to the player create a small factory orchestra.
  • Proper volume settings for master volume / effects volume / etc.

  • Station names can be changed in the train stop GUI.
  • Burner inserter will use item with fuel value for itself when it has empty inventory.
  • Logistic and Construction robots slowdown to 20% of regular speed when out of energy (instead of dying).
  • Flying text indication for items collected while placing a building (for instance a rotated transport belt).
  • Cargo wagon can have filters in the inventory.
  • Blueprints copy circuit network connections.
  • Updater can now detect some problems caused by firewalls.

  • Puff of smoke when locomotive stops.
  • New steam engine graphics.
  • New radar graphics.

GUI

Sound

  • Working sounds for most of the machines (inserters, assemblers, furnaces, steam engines, labs, etc.).
  • Sound effects for car and trains.

Changes

  • Disabled loading of saves before 0.6.0 version (You can use 0.6.4 to load any old saves and re-save them).
  • Miners in blueprint are ignored when no resource present, instead of blocking the whole blueprint.
  • Changed stack sizes of items to be 10 based, so it fits the inserter/requester count values.

Optimisations

  • Parallelised map generation, the hiccups when new part of map is generated should be smaller or non-existent.
