Since announcing the ATS map rescale project, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. It was a confirmation that rescaling the map was the right decision - thank you for your encouragement!

We would like to share a couple of screenshots showcasing some locations in the game world that we are improving. Enjoy!

Donner Pass - a road which winds through steep mountains. We're trying to represent correct height profiles wherever possible.
A big part of I-80 between Sacramento and Oakland was missing. We added it along with its unique junctions including the overpass that crosses I-580.

Factorio Version 0.13.15
  • Bugfixes
    • Fixed that rotating the quickbar would make the headless server crash. more[forums.factorio.com]

You can get experimental releases by selecting the 'experimental' beta branch under Factorio's properties in Steam.
Factorio Version 0.13.14
  • Changes
    • Surplus items from crafting are again available for crafting other items. For example, crafting two green circuits will no longer result in two extra copper wires in the player's inventory. This only applies to items that are automatically crafted as a prerequisite; items the player has explicitly requested to craft will not be used to satisfy the dependencies of any further orders.
    • Factorio will output to console window in UTF8 on Windows.
  • Bugfixes
    • Fixed crash when trying to connect copper wire to invalid entities out of range in the latency state. more[forums.factorio.com]
    • Fixed burner fuel sources would keep their energy when dying and being rebuilt by robots. more[forums.factorio.com]
    • Fixed inserters would try to grab items from rails instead of chests/entities when build in specific setups. more[forums.factorio.com]
    • Fixed disconnecting chests or constant combinators not correctly clearing circuit network. more[forums.factorio.com]
    • Fixed a crash that sometimes happened after canceling manual crafting. more[forums.factorio.com]
    • Fixed a bug where canceling a prerequisite product would cancel more than necessary....
Hello all,

0.14 dreams
The 0.13 stabilisation process has been going on much smoother than expected. This was due to the focused bug fixing efforts of majority of the dev team. It seems realistic that we could have a stable 0.13 version within a week or two. Naturally this brings the question what will be in the box for 0.14. We have had a chat about this with kovarex and came up with a specific (yet very rough or high-level) road plan for 0.14 (and subsequently 0.15). However this will be the content of the next FFF where kovarex will present you a more detailed list of things that you might (most probably - as always) expect.

Apart from bugfixing not much has been happening lately. Rseding is getting ready for his way back home to the US (2 months flew by really fast). Kovarex is still deep down in Multiplayer rewrite. I have been refactoring our webpage from Clojure to Python (to make it more accessible and consistent with the rest of our web applications). In general there is a summer chill atmosphere in the office.
One of the bigger fixes in recent 0.13 releases has been the main loop. Robert (aka Twinsen) writes more about it:

Main Loop Again
Something that happened in 0.13.10 is that the game's main loop was partially rewritten. I'll explain a bit how our game loop works.

For those who don't know, a Game Loop, or Main Loop is a small part of the game's code that is responsible for telling the game when to process the user input, update the game state and...
Update 1.147: This week's update brings you a round of bug fixes and improvements, as well as the addition of the auto orientation feature. In our dev diary this week, you'll hear from Space Engineers programmer Lukas, who will tell you more about the visual scripting he's been working on.
