Re: Smelting lead tier 3 worse than tier 2.

I have too much florite usually, but I tend to do Slag -> Crystallization for my Uranium... so I get a lot of florite..

I used to have a Sulfer problem till I switch all my Coke manufacturing from baking it to washing for the sulfer waste water. But I'm not even processing my acid gas right now :P

Re: Development and Discussion

I'd personally like to see a way to get all the Trees, Gardens, Puffers, & Fish through none exploratory means. Trees & Gardens (seeds) could gotten from an aviary, fish eggs gotten from processing water, and Puffers could be gotten from processing Air. (Just examples).. But basically the production...

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

I like the idea of stacked belts...but make them work sort of like highways... IE there are on ramps and off ramps that can output a fully compressed belt... 2ndly...

Re: If you could walk on pipes in Factorio, would you build less underground pipes?

Generally speaking I avoid pipes in general. I just barrel stuff, and manually move things around until I get logistics usually.

A follow coder and friend at work talked about the glory of factorio.. I'm now working in an office were every Software Engineer here (6 of us) plays factorio...We love it..

Potential New Game Mode based on Chain Signal Tutorial?

1st. Shout out to the devs for such an awesome tutorial system. It is truly awesome. So last night I checked out the Chain Signal Tutorial... and I kinda want more. I think this is more likely to implemented by modders, but I could totally see a series of Factorio puzzles coming through. Such as bal...

Re: Starting out a new map.

Having 1 less physical resource to be highly dependent on (coal) is always nice. But I don't upgrade to electric furnaces until I have robots and efficiency modules. But like I said before, I rip out all smelting from my base at this time anyways, and throw it down to a smelting station to handle it...

Re: Hidden ores

Is this idea still up for consideration? IF so, I vote yes. Provided the Hidden ores work similar to oil.

Re: Change Default Auto Save 2min to 15min.

15 is extreme for a default. I would recommend a 4 at the max. It barely takes any time for my save to go through, but I pointed my Windows Documents to be on my SSD.. I've noticed quite a few gamers will have their My Documents on their HDD vs the SSD, If you want faster saves, you'll want to fix t...

Re: Walled off VS Outposts

It really depends on how spread out your outposts are, and if you play with water or not. If you think the amount of time and resources it takes to expand you wall will net you many pockets of resources I say go for it. I've done both methods, and I've found if you plan on making bigger bases to jus...

Re: Barrels post-tanker?

Space is no issue in this game. But barrels are easy to handle. Just put requester chests near a fab that needs fluids. Better than piping Space can be an issue, especially if you play with medium water, low stone, and/or you want smaller paths for drones or belts. But now that I think about, the n...

Re: Parrallel processing in games & applications

But multithreading isn't some amazing performance multiplier, and it only really has an impact if you have more cores, so its great if you have a shiny modern 8 core i7 or something, but for people on laptop or low end CPUs with maybe only a dual core, the performance improvement might not even be ...
