Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

I'm all on board for a big expansion. I hope it ends up being the space platform y'all originally conceived of as the end game!

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

Supported the highest tier possible over 6 years ago. Proud to have my name somehow, in some silly way, inside this game. Great job to everyone at Wube and I look forward to future patches and your next endeavor!

Re: Friday Facts #227 - Rendering, Trees & Scenario talk

User DedlySpyder helped me create a PvP mod that had factory builders gather and refine resources to spend against each other in a "proxy war" battled by hired AI. Though it's technically "finished," we didn't continue development of it because we thought 1.0 was soon upon us and...

Re: Friday Facts #212 - The GUI update (Part 1)

When I first saw the new UI I audibly went "wooooaaaaahhh!" because it looks real nice. Upon reflection, however, I think if you're going to go with this "shades of grey" window panel style, I think you should allow the user some freedom in color choice. I'm certain mods would al...

Re: [1.5] Thoughts after about 20 hours of play (and a .gif!)

Oh one more thing I'd love to exist in the vanilla game: The ability to insta-upgrade things w/o having to put down blueprints or rebuild. AKA: I want to tell my robots that when I'm in range of a lower-tier object and I have higher-tier versions in my inventory, I want the robots to just go out and...

[1.5] Thoughts after about 20 hours of play (and a .gif!)

So here are some quick thoughts about where I feel like the game still needs some shuffling. Firstly, nuclear power tech is monolithic. It costs a lot and gives a lot. However, I don't really feel like monolithic tech fits in well with Factorio. I don't know if this is something you did on purpose a...

Please warn us before resetting our keybinds.

I just grabbed .15 and was sadly given a pop-up upon start that says "your configurations have been reset." Could you please warn us before doing this? I had my keybinds _just_ right and trying to redo them all from scratch is a major pain. I'd at least like to be able to grab my old binds...

Re: Multiplayer scenario suggestion: Proxy wars.

Yep, kinda agree that theres no need for an arena, just let the biter loose on the other side as soonas it is bought. Whoever gets resources faster will eventually snowball into a victory by killing the enemy player. I figure it's time to ask again. I had one taker before but they suddenly became t...

Re: Friday Facts #169 - Combat revisit 2

https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-169 Hey Klonan, I hope you're still reading replies here because there's a multiplayer mode I'd really love to see added to Factorio. I think as is, Factorio isn't really built for proper multiplayer gaming outside of the mega-factory co-op mode we have now. M...

Re: Multiplayer scenario suggestion: Proxy wars.

I have a few reasons for why I want waves instead of continuous. Most of it centers around dealing with the drop-in/drop-out aspect of multiplayer and how to keep the required scripting to a minimum. The thing you want to avoid is letting someone have their group of biters be in the arena grouped up...

YES Is that a "YES I will work on this with you" or a "YES I want that idea to be made" YES? I have a half-assed design doc already made that outlines the basic necessary coding requirements (a nice outline that can help you prioritize what you do and don't know how to do alread...

Multiplayer scenario suggestion: Proxy wars.

I've had this idea for a while but I never thought to come and request someone here make it. I've been told by another modder on another forum that it should be relatively easy to make for Factorio but they didn't want to spend effort on it. Thus, I come here, wondering if someone else would like to...

Re: Friday Facts #152 - Team production challenge

I'm very happy to read that you guys are developing multiplayer scenarios, I really feel like this area is where Factorio is failing its audience the most. As is, multiplayer just doesn't "play" well with my friends in the pure sandbox mode it offers. I have an idea that I think is really ...

Re: Friday Facts #129 - The late game

I just wanted to give my input as someone who has beaten the game within version 12 and did NOT build a megafactory. Honestly, I want more incentive to build a megafactory. I do think the ideas you've outlined are very good ones and will definitely make the building of a megafactory a more attractiv...

Re: How do I connect to my own headless server?

The answer is to host the headless server on a port other than the default port by changing the port location in config.ini.

Someone who can edit the wiki wanna add that in? :)

How do I connect to my own headless server?

I have a headless server running on my Windows desktop so my friends can join and leave whenever without me having to run the game. However, I want to play too! Unfortunately, when I try to connect, it gives me an error about my port socket being in use, which of course it is because I'm hosting the...
