Re: Friday Facts #189 - Specifying the 1.0

While I know you guys are looking forward to 1.0 and want to lock things down please do consider modular armour/weapons for the tank and/or the long talked about rts option. Without the ability to send out robots to do the fighting for you, I think you are missing out a huge chunk of what a game foc...

Re: Friday Facts #169 - Combat revisit 2

I'm rather disappointed that after all this time a game about automation still does not have an automated way to destroy biters. Turrets.... I'd guess Balinor means something like Combat Robots that fly out for search & destroy missions. Correct. I thought I was being completely obvious but perhaps...

Re: Friday Facts #160 - Playtesting

One suggestion I might make in regards to content would be some way to automate biter base killing. The mod Robot Army ( https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?t=23543 ) is a good example but I think the idea would really benefit from an official implementation because of the complexity of thing...

Re: Friday facts #158 - The end of the 32 bit era

Secondly, TOS don't really mean much at all what matters is consumer law and in some places you may be forced to offer a refund for things being different than at the time of sale, just fyi. Well we have made things very clear, on our site we promise you will have access to all future factorio upda...

Re: Friday facts #158 - The end of the 32 bit era

And that's why you don't buy games in EA, Devs like to change things and fuck you up. Hope we get 1.0 before they stop supporting 64 bits I guess we could also drop 64bit support in 0.15. Of course that would mean no one would be able to play the game, but we have a right to do that, don't we? Ever...

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.15 + 0.16

For .15 I would love to see some kind of combat robot that I can build and then send out. Something along the lines of RTS style combat systems. I want to play a builder and have my minions do all the fighting for me. Such a mod exists - "robot army" It does indeed exist. However in a game that is ...

Re: What kind of restrictions on Achievements will there be?

I don't see why it matters how people get achievements. If it really affects you that badly that a person might cheat an achievement or use a walkthrough guide or have someone else do it for them, then that is a problem with you. Don't let other people having fun interfere with your fun and don't va...

Re: Guys, How do you feel about the killing power of tanks.

Tanks in their current form are worthless to me. I'm hoping they eventually can either be automated or they will offer a meaningful alternative to tier 3 armour. I still want my robot deathsquads that I can send out to harvest biter nests though while I continue building my base :D

Re: Discussing the (missing?) 4th type of transport!

Trucks and truck stops make the most sense to me. For those saying that trucks would carry too much stuff then just limit the size of the truck to a few hundred items. Simples.

I haven't voted on the poll because the worst part about the endgame for me is that we are still going out and fighting the biters by hand.

Signatures almost never serve a practical purpose anyway. Just ban banners / pictures in signatures and limit them to a single line of text.

Re: A few questions

I don't think the demo really shows off the game that well. I think a freeplay demo with the late game research locked off would work better. On value though it is definitely worth the price. Upon being asked recently how many hours I had put into the game since purchase the conservative estimate wa...
