Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

We have a rocket assembly building, why not have one for vehicles? OP talked about RTS's vehicle construction buildings as a standard to look to, I would like to see automated vehicle construction and armies of tanks as well. but you need more than just a factory for that, the large swarms of empty ...

I came here to compliment the Devs on how awesome the walls are, and to ask this same question!

So can we please be able to stick turrets ontop of walls?

Re: Friday Facts #226 - New mod portal & other news

With so much time being taken I think we can say a simple straight hard nerf or buff is out of the question. Or at least a thoughtless one is out of the question. Still i’d Like to purpose D: an all the above solution. A little belt buff, a little bot nerf and reduce the number of effect transmitter...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

My guess is a little of everything, like increase blue belt speed from 3x yellow to 4x, a slight nerf to bots, and redoing beacons to make room for belts in end game setups.

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

What about changing recipies? Just Make iron, copper and other high use resources use less individual pieces on the belt. For example, say you quadruple the usefulness of each piece of iron in all recipies. now factories will produce 2 gears for each piece of iron given Instead of needing two iron ...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

1: Modules and Beacons being as they currently are means that there is really only one endgame layout that is optimal. Which is the ever famous alternating rows of beacons and assemblers, which everyone uses because it is clearly optimal. If modules and/or beacons were changed so that there was mor...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Can't you just solve the issue with a general belt speed research, general inserter speed research? Also someone mentioned fixing effect transmitters to allow belt usage in high throughput designs, just stop multiple towers effects from overlapping/stacking, and buff their slots to compensate, that ...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

The good solutions I see are: New or Improved belt type, (Can you save UPS, by covering up the belt and its contents?) or faster belt speed research. This will help belts compete with drones, but cannot be too powerful or trains wont be able to compete. Stopping effect beacons from stacking, remove ...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Some sort of super belt are the solution , a 4x4 sized covered belt (covered to improve game performance) capable of only carrying one resource at a time, but with three times the throughput of a single belt of the same color. These will be the arteries of your base. With this the time spent laying ...

Re: Friday Facts #222 - Christmas avalanche

I would ask you to take the time to allow seperate tanks, since I find it very convenient to load smaller amounts of fluids such as lubercant and sulfuric acid in a single car. Why do we even have barrels now? Even if they're technically better, why bother with the unnecessaryly complex, superfluous...

Re: Please make trains able to run over evolved aliens

Swarms, perhaps a group of bugs grazing on the tracks, trains in the old west could take on a single cow or buffalo easily, but a herd? Nope. So allow trains to swat one or a couple bugs, but not a dozen +, also give bugs an AI behavior for catching trains, also give us some sort of armored car to d...

Re: Friday Facts #219 - Cliffs

I don't know about rail tunnels, but bridges would be nice.

Oh and landfill should only turn shallow water into land and turn deep blue water into shallow water, that way the extra cost incentivizes building bridges rather than landfill.

I'd like to see something between 2 & 3 as well. Or maybe start as 3, then add a few upgrades towards 2.

Oh, can we have a thermal vision upgrade? Where biters, furnaces and other hot spots appear extra bright?
