Re: Version 1.0.0

My bases tend to grow organically (read: horrible spaghetti) and I always incorporate the terrain into my base defenses. Cliffs are unbreachable walls, and lakes are uncrossable moats. If you like, one could use the "Waterfill" mod to actually create moats. As to bots flying over enemy bas...

Stuck- how di I get brine? -SOLVED

Figured it out- Salt Water Electrolysis. Put the salt and pure water into an electrolyzer.

Started a new game. Need to make Chlorine for plastic production. FNEI says I can make brine in a chemical plant from salt and pure water, but the recipe doesn't come up. What do I need to unlock?

Re: What next after Factorio?

I know a lot of folks really enjoy building elaborate train networks in Factorio, myself included. I'm thinking of a game that would use the Factorio engine, where villages, towns and cities spawn on a dynamically generated map, along with the resources they demand. The player would need to build r...

Re: I can't beat it...

Wow, and I have enough trouble with biters on the regular settings. :) I hadn't played Factorio in a while, then started back with 0.18. Biters got smarter and tougher. I actually "lost" my first game of Factorio- was playing with regular resources with biters on aggressive, and ended up e...

What next after Factorio?

Now that 1.0 is out, hopefully the Devs can relax a little. If they're looking for a new game to develop, I'd like to make a suggestion: Trains. I know a lot of folks really enjoy building elaborate train networks in Factorio, myself included. I'm thinking of a game that would use the Factorio engin...

Re: Patreon

Late to the party, but joined your Patreon. I could go on for pages about how much I enjoy your mods. I had gotten burned out on vanilla Factorio. You've accomplished the equivalent of developing Factorio 2 all on your own, and I'd gladly pay for that. For years I've been amazed at how many content ...

Re: [POLL] Left- or Right- hand rails and roads?

I'm fine with Right/Right. I am using the Asphalt Roads mod. Haven't actually built a two-lane road yet except for a short decorative stretch. Highways would only be really useful in a big multiplayer game and/or with AAI Programmable Vehicles. The hauler tops out at over 90 km/h on pavement; it's a...

Re: Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle tips and tricks

I think every Factorio player has a chest(s) with random junk in it. I usually put the first one near the first offshore pump so I can remember where it is. Once you have logi bots, then junk just accumulates all over in random storage chests. (Which reminds me I need to clean out my basement.) :P T...

Re: [0.18] Please post bugs and balance issues here.

Hello! On my first playthrough with these wonderful mods. Thank you so much! Possible balance issue: As has been mentioned by some, there is an initial surplus of Sodium Hydroxide. But now that I'm in a later stage of the game and need massive quantities of aluminum, alumina production is constraine...
