Missing Factory's
« on: September 22, 2010, 05:35:41 AM »
It may be my imagination but didn't PAK128 used to have Chemists and Pharmaceuticals?  The Refinery's produce Chemicals so there really should be associated factory's.

No, there are none of these in pak128. For a moment you got me wondering, too... But I checked the source files (which contain even the removed stuff) and just to make sure, I also checked back to pak128 in versions 99.17 and 99.03 - same result. So I guess they really never existed.

Chemicals however, are used by printers in pak128. So far the only industry I cound find that uses them. But there is one.

(But since this topic deals with a probable pak128 bug, it should be placed in the pak128/bugs section - maybe a Mod can move it?)

Let's wait for the pak128 maintainers opinion, to ensure if it's really a bug or those factories never existed.

Ok, "Help Requests" also works of course.

I also checked pak128 for 88.10.5 and the one for 86.03.2. Various types of industries, but no Chemists or Pharmaceuticals.

So I think it is pretty safe to say that they didn't exist (at least for many, many years - but probably they never did) and it is not a recent bug. But if VS is needed to make that judgement "official", ok. ;)

I think it's just a mix-up with pak64 (or yet another pakset), where these industries indeed exist.

Last post 22-09-10 Isn't anybody going to give a positive reply to this or is just going to die a death like the electrification of industries. The developers might as well remove Chemicals from Refinery's then.
