Re: Megabase ideas

Well right now im trying to make a 1kspm module. I've seen others do this. Just plop down the (usually pretty massive) blueprint, feed it resources and it produces/consumes science. The only thing external to this module will be power generation and mining. These things could constitute a megabase i...

How can I accompish this? Train station and ore problem.

So im looking to get a railway station that will enable itself if there is 16k or more ore in the chests (easy enough). The issue is when a patch runs dry there may be say 15k ore in the chests. And the train will never collect this. How can I make it so that trains come to collect ore when there is...

Re: Headless server autosave config

Ah thanks for that, found the setting. For the docker container it's in server-settings.json. Permissions looks like a cool feature. Any permissions in particular I should disable for a public non passworded server without crippling legit players ability to play? I would say least disable deconstru...

Re: Headless server autosave config

Hi guys I was wondering if it was possible to configure the headless server to do more than 5 autosaves and maybe also configure the time between them? Say do 24 autosaves and do one every hour or something? P.S If anyone has any other tips about stopping griefers or making it more difficult for th...

Re: your thoughts on menu simulation

I think the menu simulations are fantastic tbh. Wouldn't change a thing. I saw the the same thing done in OpenRA and it was very cool there too.

Re: [Updated 04/13/2019] Unofficial Factorio Troll/Griefer Database

Over the past couple days there have been griefers in a few of the multiplayer games that I've played. Almost all of them were on one or more of these lists. Unfortunately, these lists were disorganized, so I wrote a script which ingests banlists from all of the major servers in this thread and pro...

Re: Factorio confessions

With the help of multiple spidertrons and the follow command I have brought rocket and nuclear justice to the homes of those godless creatures commonly known as "biters". On deathworld with rampant mod that's a lot of justice.

No regrets!

Does anyone have any experience with RAM Speeds beyoned 3600? There are (expensive) sets available with speeds of up to 4400 MhZ, will they bring a similar speed bost as going from 3200 to 3600? I'm currently planning to build a new PC with a Ryzen 5900, but since it probably won't be available for...

Each power pole and substation is limited to 5 copper wire connections. If you exceed that, then the connection is not made.
Ah interesting, that'll be it then :)

Re: Small Power Poles in Smelting Array not connecting

I've noticed this phenomenon as well, it happens with large power poles and substations too. I don't know if it's something im doing wrong but they sometimes just don't connect. It doesn't happen often though.

Re: Can't see any multiplayer games anymore after unlinking steam and factorio accounts.

If you bought on steam and are playing the standalone, switch to steam and vice versa. If you are playing on the same version that you bought, try reinstalling. Yeah im playing on the steam version, always have done. I gave reinstalling a bash earlier and no joy. Tried it again and deleting the Fac...

Can't see any multiplayer games anymore after unlinking steam and factorio accounts.

So I bought the game on steam maybe 4 months ago. And recently I made a factorio.com account because I thought I had to to host a multiplayer server. But it seems that's not the case, I can use a steam token. So after having my steam and factorio accounts linked I wanted to get my original steam use...

Re: Thank you (Make the dev-team happy today!)

Thanks for making the game guys! It's the most fun/additive game for me since Starcraft 1 and Diablo II maybe 20 years ago. Those games stole my childhood, no regrets tbh. No game has gripped me like Factorio has since then, its really really fun :D It still shocks me that i've sunk maybe 300-400 ho...
