My visit to Prague
Todays Friday Facts are brought to you by Rseding91. I live in the USA and normally work remotely for Wube but I've been visiting Prague for the past 2 months. Since I'm not the touristy kind of person (I'm a programmer) and I love working on Factorio; I've spent almost all of my time here in the office. I've been in Prague since June 6 and my current time sheet says I've logged 568.55 hours.

The bugs
0.13.0 was released 4 weeks ago and we've had 9 releases since with 280+ bugs fixed of which I've personally fixed 99. We've still got 60+ confirmed bugs to work through however the bug reports are coming in less frequently as time passes. The reported bugs have also changed from "the game crashed, my map is corrupt, my computer exploded" style bugs to this[forums.factorio.com] kind of bug. While yes, it's still a bug, it doesn't break gameplay at all so it's far less critical to get fixed immediately.

The number of repeat bugs (bugs reported, fixed, and then broken again later) is near zero and of the bugs reported and fixed in 0.13 almost all of them where preexisting issues or introduced from features added in 0.13. That means that our automated tests are working and we aren't fighting against ourselves fixing issues we've already fixed.

Other than the outstanding multiplayer issues mentioned in last week's Friday Facts 0.13 is looking great and baring any major bugs we're planning for a...
In both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, players already have the option to modify their interior camera viewpoint by adjusting the seat position, changing head position and modifying the view angle. In earlier game updates, we've also made the in-cabin camera more lifelike by simulating steering and blinker camera rotation as well as physical camera movement. But we still felt the job wasn't done, so now it's time to go one step further in order to fully simulate the range of possible adjustments you could make in real life.

So without further ado: in the following game updates, we are going to add a small new feature: adjusting the steering wheel column position. With this feature you'll be allowed to modify both the height and the angle of the steering wheel in order to give you the chance to create your perfect driving position. With this we're one step closer to making the cabin in ATS and ETS2 just like the real thing. Last but not least, in the Seat Adjustment UI screen we will add the ability to modify the Seat Adjustment window values with the mouse wheel.

We hope you're as excited about these features as we are. In the mean time, here is a short GIF showing it off:
