Re: Friday Facts #395 - Generic interrupts and Train stop priority

I have to say, although I've liked playing Factorio off and on for the last 5 to 10 years or so, I don't think I'll be buying the new DLC. This game has become way too complicated. All the changes I see here are just for a very small amount of people who have a massive factory and understand how tra...

Re: Stuck on messagebox when starting new game

@Bilka
Ooooooooooh, that solved it! So strange that a bug like this was never found. Why not have a simple close button to avoid these things?

Thank you very much for helping, I can play now!

[Solved] Stuck on messagebox when starting new game

I played this game some years and decided to give it another go. But, after pressing the new game and play button, I get a message box which I cannot close (right at the very start). I have pressed most keys on my keyboard (incl. esc, tab, backspace, return, enter, space, etc), and I also tried with...

Re: Friday Facts #374 - Smarter robots

I have played this game for hundreds of hours (in early Early Access), but never used robots. I think they are a cheat. I only build my factories with belts because I like the difficulty of getting the logistics done sort of like in a real world city. Are there many people like me, or does just abou...

Re: Version 1.1.87

Aha, ok. Thanks for the info.

I prefer to not be a beta tester. If my game breaks after spending 50+ hours on a map I would be devastated.

Re: Version 1.1.87

Is there a bug with updating the Steam version?
I haven't played in a while, and I just checked Factorio.
It says that my version is still at v1.1.80, and Steam says there is no update.

Wow, seriously! I was fooled by it until just past the half-way point.
Boy, was I steaming before that. This was a really good April's fools joke.

these guys who talk about 30 is too much are just :oops:

please make it 60.
This is just stupid.

Which of the following two propositions makes most sense for a person you think?

1. You can buy Satisfactory + Factorio + Dyson Sphere Program for €60,-
2. You can buy 1 DLC for Factorio for €60,-

Re: Friday Facts #367 - Expansion news

The biggest gripe I have with Factorio is that the 'doing research so you can do more research' loop is very dissatisfying. I would like to have interesting goals that 'coincidentally' require things to be researched. Such as? Almost everything I can think of (either in Factorio now, or potentially...

Re: Friday Facts #367 - Expansion news

I only play without enemies, so if this picture means more enemies then I guess this expansion is not for me. The expansion will likely have more of everything. But if it also has more enemies that you won't even see with your settings then you don't want all the other things? Do you not like Facto...

Re: Friday Facts #367 - Expansion news

I like Factorio a lot, but €30,- is really too steep in my opinion. €10,- makes sense, making it at least cheaper than the actual game.

Re: Friday Facts #366 - The only way to go fast, is to go well!

One of the problems I have encountered after having been a software engineer for about 25 years now is that features and fixes are billable hours, while writing tests are not billable hours. In 95% of the time I have to 'sneakily' add tests during development. Everything is a priority, everything ha...
