Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

You can't make an omelette without breaking an egg. Considering what there is to be gained from this (game engine upgrades, plenty of new content/stuff, plenty of cool mods to follow, etc), is it really a big deal if a few BPs are obsolete or older vanilla content is rebalanced to fit the new conte...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

This way, the planets allow you to have upgrades of what you have, but also provide more convinient solution to problems you have on the original planet. But even as it is, without the cliff explosives, artillery and spidertron, you can still build quite a big base without problems as you still hav...

Artillery: Having the habit of building too large too fast and loosing the war with UPS, I've never yet gotten to the point of automating the perimeter much at all. The medium, big, and behemoth worms, however, have always been a manual-intervention issue. Other than them beasties the walls, suffici...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

It's rather reassuring to see that the creator of SE is involved in the work on SA. I don't expect to be informed if they are, or not, or when they become involved, but I believe that having the creators of other heavy expansion mods, or full overhauls, such as Bobs & Angels, and Krastorio and N...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

Engine Support: There are so many things that Space Exploration just can't do because it's a mod. But after release of the expansion, would other mods be able to use these new features added to engine because of the expansion? Or it will be expansion-exclusive features, i.e. expansion will have uni...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

How will the interaction in multiplayer behave? Will all players require the DLC to be able to play in a multiplayer world? OR will it be so that lan worlds are related to the DLC owned by the host while others joining(within a limit) can join even if they don't have it. While dedicated servers req...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

I can hardly wait, and 52 +/- weeks is going to be killer. The FFF return will hold back the sanity. (Sanity isn't all it's reputed to be.) I'm a bit worried about some of the balance adjustments, but I'm willing to hold judgement until I've tried them. The one part that did catch me attention was t...

Re: How common is it to deconstruct EVERYTHING and start over late-mid game?

I'm a bit late, maybe more than a bit. I did that, once. Made a massive field of storage chests, as in 4 chunks worth, with roboports and power poles space within it. I started deconstructing everything, from the edge inward to preserve the power and keep the logistics network intact. Those thousand...

Re: Factorio price increase - 2023/01/26

Steam achievements are unreliable, as a source of data about the player base of the game. First, buy the game from WUBE and never use the Steam key and all achievements are silently acquired. Play the game with any mods on, even while live on Steam, and the achievements are silently acquired. Use th...

Re: Version 1.1.69

I'm gonna have to give the new icons a mixed review. The work on them is great, and all the detail is good. Updating the placed belts to show the cogs would be nice too. I actually like them better than the placed belts. Using them as an icon - something to rapidly carry information to my brain - do...

Re: [1.1.42] (Linux) Character cannot run past a fast (red) belt lane squeeze

That looks like a good match, almost. It does explain the "reason" for the sudden halt of progress. Seems that there was an adjustment made somewhere in the past for that issue. Now running along a belt causes the character to nudge very slightly in the direction opposite the turn, allowin...

[1.1.42] (Linux) Character cannot run past a fast (red) belt lane squeeze

The bug happens when I build a "Y"-shaped arrangement of fast belts where the gap between lanes is removed. factorio-error-open-belt-block-point.png factorio-error-full-belt-block-point.png When moving in the opposite direction, and exactly on the center line between belts, the character c...
