Re: Fluids are killing me

To be more precise: Advanced oil processing (AOP) is killing you. The hidden problem you are struggeling with is, that the recipes around AOP mathematically form a set of linear equations. But don't worry! I just mention that term in case you ever want to dive deeper into it, which is not required. ...

Re: Factorio Vanilla Long Distance 2,5x Pressurized Water Using a Single Pipeline/Pumps (3000 Fluid/sec)

You can increase that to 12000/sec if you use only pumps. Just needs more power.

The basic question is, when is transporting by train more cost efficient and less of a construction hassle and when is transporting by pipes.

Re: Lua or something else?

I think I remember that Rseding was very critical towards LUA in an Q&A a few years back. I tried to find that interview again but failed. No, I found it ( https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comments/6w3z5i/developer_qa/dm5fzu8/ ). FactorioAddict: If you could go back in time and develop Factorio...

I'm definitely in favor of a big expansion, it's an excellent way to continue funding the game, without the hassle that dlc's become. As a fan of Paradox games I am thoroughly sick of dlc's lol.
Paradox' dlc policy really turned me away from their games, which I otherwise liked initially.

Re: Dyson Sphere Program

What Deadlock wrote is a real turndown for me. (Having a swarm network, that just does everything by itself? Nah thanks.) I am very receptive to the opinion of people who showed some thoughtfulness and analytical skill regarding game mechanics (also yours, eradicator - I read your opinion on Factori...

Re: Sci fi novels and factorio?

... want to point out, that I didn't like ... the expanse (starts awesome (Leviathan wakes), gets worse soon (in book 2 of 9, I read until 6, I should have stopped earlier)). I feel you. I also thought "enough is enough" after book 6. I don't know if it was the story in 5 & 6 or if it...

I could not disagree more. That is the perfect recipe to create a clutter everyone hates in the end, even the devs (it is explained in the FFF why they don't want to make a lot of small DLCs). With a single expansion, there will at least be one group of people, who like it.

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

I have to say, I am really glad Wube hired Earendel. Why? Because Earendel is exactly my taste for an additional game designer for Factorio. When I read the threads "What is next for Wube" and "Factorio 2" I thought: "Hire Earendel to plan a new expansion. Earendel showed so...

Re: A 4k spm modular megabase with diagonal rail grid and some concrete art

Looking at the map picture of your creation, for me it resembles something like a magic wand. Now, on the lower side of the "wand", below the solar fields, there are some sites or production complexes. What are these? Smelting? other basic production? Also a point of thought about reloadin...
