Re: Some ideas for the "One big expansion pack"

Just a quick and small thought: Walls made from Concrete, not Stone, are much harder, and more with refined concrete.

[1.1.26] Cut-n-paste created impossible wire

WeirdWire.jpg Inside the green circle a "gadget" that switches to coal when solid fule is no longer available I copy-n-pasted it to the Red position. The circuit was not complete, no box on belt. The Blue circle is the ghost of the copy/blueprint, just for info, and it does show the corre...

Re: Factorio confessions

I learned another important lesson last night - while fooling around with chain signals, do not stand in the middle of the track! I'll add to that, do not activate train while standing in front of it. Been there, Done it ... Now, the real question: Do you relaod from last fast save point Do you tak...

Re: Some ideas for the "One big expansion pack"

Factorio is about building factories. More items and complexity is one way for the expansion to go, although not very inventive. The choice of maps, costs and enemies give enough difficulty levels as it is now. Achievments (layzy dog, speedrun) are challenges, but all still "end" with same...

Re: Stages of Factorio gameplay

Nice list. I'm sort of between 4 and 5. I have about half the achievments, and honing skills to do the <15 h. I'm a solo vanilla kind of player.

Re: Version 1.1.23

On Steam you can set that you want the 1.1.21 beta, so you can continue your game. (My pc verson crashed in 1.1.22 the menu screen all on its own after a minute or so - you're not alone. Check the bug section viewforum.php?f=47)

This version is bugged. If you have not updated already, don't. If you have, wait for the next version which will likely come soon.
Ah, yes, hmmm... :? auto update is very efficient :|

Re: Version 1.1.21

Shouldn't this be available in the "betas" on Steam? Factorio.com lists 1.1.21 as experimental. My steam client shows it as available in the latest 1.1 experimental branch. Allowing for failing eyesight earlier, I agree it is there, now. BTW - Kudos, praise and more for having a system th...

Re: Version 1.1.20

Woot-woot! Added hotkey (default O) to toggle the train overview GUI. Just because of that I have to leave the saftey of the stable release and use this version. Now I just want a hotkey to switch between Manual and Automatic of the train I am sitting in. (Cant think of an easy way to choose which t...

[1.1.13] Train content to circuit stops when adding wagons

I have the inserters controlled by circuit from the train stop with "Read Train Contents". Works fine. When adding (or removing) a wagon to the train, it stops reporting the content. (This caused inserters to start loading again) I can set it manual, reverse it a little and then schedule t...

Re: Implement Super Ultrawide support?

I have a widescreen, too. This is great for my private hobby/work, having 3-5 windows open with graphic/circuits/listings without a distracting artificial divide in the middle by a two screen solution is great. Incidentally, the wide screen is exactly two "ordinary" screens in pixels. Fact...

Re: Version 1.1.8

Actually an old point (since I started in 1.0.0) but as you make so many other graphics tweaks in the 1.1.x: I find the damagebars on walls hard to see. Here are 6 damaged walls. Clipboard01.png It might be my eyesight, but when they are on an "inside" wall they are easily overlooked. Unti...

* Biter behaviour/spawning seems to have been ramped up a lot.
I have that feeling, too (even in 1.1.6)

Yes, I can adjust it, but my conviction is to play a game unmodded/unadjusted.

Re: Lessons learned. Please tell me more.

Hi, I've been there, too, even recently. Now I like the experimentation, I have avoided looking at "solutions". I only got the rocket done on the 3rd game - the previous two got stuck on impossible dense layouts (something you have avoided) and getting exhusted on maintaining wall/turret/a...

Testing new version - copy settings from old

Hi, I've only started since 1.0 so I do not have along history of patch/update/testing Factorio. I am playing (passionatly!) the game in 1.0 on Steam, and have downloaded the "manual/zip" development versions for test. I only intend to play copies of 1.0 games on the new version, testing t...
