ARK: Survival Evolved Introducing the Daeodon!

Dino Dossier

A new Dino Dossier has been revealed, this one is everyone’s favourite healing hell pig, the Daeodon!
Factorio Version 0.14.12
  • The following settings are now settable only in server-settings: allow_commands - default is "admins-only" autosave_interval - default is 10 autosave_slots - default is 5 afk_autokick_interval - default is 0 auto_pause - default is true
  • Added /toggle-heavy-mode command. It can be used to generate files that help us to investigate server in a state where all new players get a desync loop.
  • Desync reports are now much bigger, but have bigger chance of being useful.
  • Fixed trains slowly moving forward when stopped on a signal more[forums.factorio.com]
  • Hopefully fixed Lua desyncs caused by string formatting functions behaving differently on different platforms.

You can get experimental releases by selecting the 'experimental' beta branch under Factorio's properties in Steam.

another friday and another Facts. It has been 3 years already without a single friday facts missing. I didn't expect that!

32 bit
Our automated integration test count just reached 800. We have several modes to run these. One of the modes is to generate crc hash values of all the steps, which can be compared with values when the tests are started on different platform, or release type.
When doing this, I noticed that there are several problems related to difference between 32 and 64 bits and after solving few of them, I realized that doing this kind of work might be actually not useful usage of our time.

So I made a list of reasons to not have 32 bit support anymore:
  • Extra issues related to determinism between 32 bit and 64 bit systems that would have to be solved.
  • Release times (compile, upload, updates, server storage space)
  • Occasional bugs that we don't notice as no one uses 32 bit system here.
  • Confusion of some people that download 32 bit by accident and run out of memory soon.
As steam allows me to check the hardware survey of users playing factorio, I did that and found out that less than 1% of people playing Factorio have 32 bit system. That is not that much considering, that a lot of them have different device capable to run the game as well. I believe, that saving our time so we can spend it on things the 99% of our players appreciate more is the right decision.

The conclusion is to disable multiplayer in 32 bit version...
