Re: Defects and re-work coming soon :D

Yup, the severity of each fault increases as it passes along the line. Each new task carried out on the car increases the severity. Thats basically a measurement of how long it takes to fix.
Currently a rework station fixes all faults, but allowing some to be missed is definitely interesting.

Re: Designing the QA system in Production Line

Thanks. I definitely think that 2 elements are needed regarding vehicle quality (component quality is interesting, but something I think can be handled after vehicle quality is done). Firstly I think we definitely need a way to reduce the amount of defects along a line as the car is assembled. Secon...

Re: [Bug 1.48] Blueprint mode not showing none blueprint slots

This may be a rendering bug. I shall take a look. It seems to render just fine for me (see screenshot): screenshot_14-04-2018_15-45-56.png Is this maybe related to your PC spec? In your email you said the biog map takes a while to load, but it loads really fast for me. What video card & CPU do y...

Re: [Bug 1.48] Planning bug with blueprints

Hi, do you mean you cannot place a blueprint on top of an existing slot? This is by design, but I can see how you may want to do that. The trouble is there are many situations where you want to see existing slots so you can plan around them...

Re: [Bug 1.48] Blueprint mode not showing none blueprint slots

Hi thats pretty weird. Do you have a savegame that can reproduce this? if so can you email it to me at cliff At positech dot co dot uk. The savegames are found in
\my documents\my games\production line\savegames

If it uses a custom map can you attach that too?

Thanks

Designing the QA system in Production Line

(re-post from blog at https://www.positech.co.uk/cliffsblog/2018/04/13/designing-the-qa-system-in-production-line/) This is a big feature in my car factory game Production Line that I have been putting off until I could really set aside some time to think about the design seriously. I think I’ve fin...

Re: A late-game balance issue that I am thinking about...

Thanks for the feedback. I agree that I definitely need to adjust those numbers so that all 3 seem like reasonable choices rather than just one being a clear winner. I would also like to increase car export speed, although I have not yet decided the best way to do this. it could be adding more expor...

A late-game balance issue that I am thinking about...

By looking at lots of peoples games, and also doing a lot of long playthroughs myself, I've concluded that the marketing part of the game is under-utilised and not particularity fun right now. It seems like in mid to late game, most people have bought a marketing facility or two, but few are running...

I'll add this to my todo list. I think the scheduler is pretty bad in many ways from a UI POV.
