Re: help with the "logistic trash slot"- please

There is only a few possible reasons. You aren't in the logistic range of a roboport network. (eg.: the orange area) There is no free storage area (yellow chest or specific requester) in logistic range of the network you are in. The port-network doesn't have logistic bots in it. One of the ports tha...

Re: Poll: Loader vs. Heavy-Inserter

The problem is the current tools can't compare with bots. If you want to have dense unloading platforms, you have to use bots, because all belt+inserter unloading solutions take too much space. Using bots for this has no real competition in the game. Indeed. But constantly using bots eats a lot mor...

Re: Poll: Loader vs. Heavy-Inserter

Seems I'm the minority here. But I feel there's a fine line between a nice QoL change, and one that makes an interesting puzzle moot. I think reaching an equally balanced high loading/unloading speed for wagons is a lovely small logistic challenge with the current tools, that you wouldn't need to so...

Re: just curious, why no Smart Long Handed Inserters?

i'm curious as to right now, is if there's a reason it doesn't already exist. (...) if i run into enough need for it i'll see about doing something about it myself. You don't have to go too far: I know about multiple 'big' mods that have a plethora of exotic inserter types. Long smarts are just one...

Yay! It has begun!

Do I apply here for address and whitelisting? Or is that a public one and the IP is what's in the title?

Re: Unable to connect to any server

My experience is... not expecting enjoyable multiplayer from a campus net. They have usually so high traffic, especially in peak times that it just won't work. Now at other games, it'll mean that you'll lag and people will laugh. But due to how Factorio works, lag and you'll receive a lot of hate. W...

Re: [Public/Europe] Dedicated Server [0.12.29/Marathon]

Never checked the server while it was going, but it looks terrifyingly awesome. The mod-setup feels spot on. Anyways... may I throw an idea into the hat?

No logistic bots. (instead of no belts of course)

All hail to the eternal Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Re: SOLAR or STEAM [poll]

If you build just enough to power your factory and have accumulators in the right ratio, then you're going to suffer just before dawn when lasers drain you dry. Steam will never let you down. I wouldn't call such setup 'just enough'. I'd rather use the words 'just not enough' :P But that's the same...

Nope, text-chat all the way. I never felt that Factorio's pace required more, while it's excellent to enjoy relaxing music or even audiobooks on less busy days. Others seem to have agreed with me. Totally English by the way, that's our common language in the continent afterall. xD There are of cours...

Re: Mod for destroying buildings

What's the matter with guns? You can destroy everything by manual aim ('C' by default). It destroys stuff in crates too, if you want to get rid of outdated equipment.

Or right-click?

Re: SOLAR or STEAM [poll]

I dislike solar. Maybe because the game is full of -meaningful- choices were all the options have their merits and flaws (lasers or gun turrets, coal or electric smelting, belts or bots). But when I look at energy, solar just looks superior in every way. I believe this is why I always find myself lo...

5. Screenshot showing your ping to the server. It shows 100% packet loss. Normally I'd go on, but I had great fun in the vanilla-chaos you got there. Also strangely enough, that was the result I got when pinging your server right before joining it before the day it went whitelisted. Some players wh...

Re: New 24/7 server EU, need some answers

About whitelisting... It means a technical trouble for some people. My ISP confirmed that there's no way for me to not have a fixed ip when restarting the router (well, not without paying significantly more than I do now). I don't have to do it every week or month, but because of that, I'll prefer s...

I feel like it would take forever to actually play a game this way, but still cool idea nonetheless. :p It's not -that- long. You can order a bot to pick up a single piece with the deconstruction planner. Next step is to add a chess clock. :P Well, I'm a layman and nowhere near your expertise in ci...

Re: A couple of tips

I believe the devs know enough of what they want their game to become that we, the fanbase, should give unsolicited advice on how they should develop it. What most of the ideas in this forum focus on is more what we want them to include, and we'll just have to hope that they feel the same way about...
