Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

Why not make it opt-in in the sense of giving a prompt at the start of the game for the first time after it is implemented where it explains what it does and where you then add buttons at the bottom where you can either send in the future (no more prompts) or not send at all (also no more prompts). ...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

99 hour player here, created forum account just to say that the nerf to bots (moving requester chests into a much higher research tier) has basically ruined my enjoyment of the game. I hope somebody makes a mod to put it back how it used to be. Here you go: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/logistic-re...

Re: Version 0.16.17

I would instead argue that filter inserters should be removed to begin with and instead the technology unlocks filtering for all the other inserters.

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Can't say I'm a fan of the Splitter tweak coming up in the next patch. One can already build a similarly-functioning solution to the problem which the new splitter would address using circuits. I would think that a more powerful building block would trivialize the circuit building game. He did exac...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Well if you really have to nerf the bots... then push up the charging times. That change would really fuck up a lot of Bot-only bases because of the recharge queues. Nerfing the cargo size can be easily outsmarted by simply using more bots at the cost of additional power consumption. And since they...

Re: Cliffs :(

People are never happy with what they have. Cliffs have been on the "we want it" list for literally years, and now they are there, people don't want them any more. You can't please everybody at the same time I guess. Actually, you can. And the Devs did. Simply by adding an option to not p...

Re: Belts vs Bots - A response to the latest FFF

I always find it strange that people who want to incentivise something try to do that by impeding the concurrent thing instead of actually making the thing that they want to incentivise better. Both in this thread and in the FFF thread I see so many solutions about "how to limit bots in certain...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Myself I never use bots. But would it not be more interesting if bots where constraint to one robotport and its own network. You would be able to determine the size of the network manually with the maximum decided by technology. Why would it? You just admit that you never use bots. So why are you a...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

The thing is : If half the players want to keep (or even buff) the logistic bots, and half of them want to get rid of (or violently debuff) them, which half should the devs upset (if they were really considering to do something, even radical, for good) ? :) None. They buff bots and add an option to...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

This could be done by not upgrading the belts themselves but by upgrading the belt motor units. An entity that doesn't exist currently but would make total sense. In order to make belts move you place a motor beside them and power it with coal/electricity. Every connected belt starts to move. (Limi...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Don't even think about taking the bots away! Seriously, what's wrong with you?` We are still looking to incentivize belt building a bit more, since it is the more fun way to play Factorio This is NOT an universal truth! It may be more fun for you, but that certainly doesn't apply to everyone! I like...

One thing I'm missing from this mod is the ability to create Lubricant. You can do Light Oil and Petroleum, but not Heavy Oil which is needed for Lubricant.

What is wrong witgh the mod portal?

So I have been playing Factorio again for the last 3-4 days and basically the mod portal never works. When IG I want to install new mods, it always give me the message "failed to connecto to the mod portal". And I get that message 49 out of 50 tries or so. At some point it did actually con...

Re: Friday Facts #219 - Cliffs

I sure hope that the amount of cliffs is going to be configurable in the map creation menu when you start a new map.
Hopefully with an option like "no cliffs whatsoever".
Because unlike, as it seems, many many other people, I certainly don't look forward to those cliffs, like at all.

Re: If it's not a feature - it's maybe a Bug ?

There are so many reciepes that give Tehcanic Sign as a byproduct, I don't really think that an extra reciep just for Techanic Signs is needed.
At least I always get a lot of them.

Re: If it's not a feature - it's maybe a Bug ?

Frankly, I would suggest to just remove it all together or turn it down a lot because the bonus to production really is pretty huge. Another possible bug (I'm not sure if bug or intended): You can use the Plasma Ammo (the once used for the Plasma Turret) with your laser gun. You even shoot out the s...

Re: If it's not a feature - it's maybe a Bug ?

I found out that you actually CAN use "Science Baby !" Modules, but only to produce vanilla items.
Problem is that basically no Yuoki-Items are marked as intermediate, so the Modules don't work there, not even for pure iron -.-
