Re: [0.17.43] Always show "Made in" possibly with options

As a player I also got heavily confused some days ago. I could not figure out why the "made in" would not appear for some items, until I finally realized that it only displays for items that have restrictions. Please consider always showing this, it can confuse even people with 100-200 hours of play...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

While I don't condone the tone of the post quoted below, I have to agree with the message itself. I actually think it is a rather important point. So what I've gotten from the thread at this point is that the reason rails are in the production pack is because: 1)You decided science would pull double...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

My play style definitely doesn't include this, nor does that of most of the people I've watched. When I build my first refinery, I am hand crafting all the pipes, and just working on something else while that process finishes. And that's fine, the science recipes aren't forcing you to change your b...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

This update suggests that the devs think a lot of players are using automated science production as a source of materials for further expansion, and expansion of their main factory to fuel science production. My play style definitely doesn't include this, nor does that of most of the people I've wa...

Re: Friday Facts #265 - Nomenclature & Steam networking

When machine actions are functionally identical to player-character actions, they should use the same verb. A player understands that extracting ore from an ore patch is akin to the real-world action of "mining." So the player-character "mines" ore. Then the player builds a machine capable of accom...

Re: Nuclear Rocket performace hit.

Yes, in principle it is possible to record. 1) Some console command/debug option allows you to display UPS/FPS along with other details on the screen. I don't know exactly how to do this, I have seen screenshots of this though. Try and search the forums for more info. 2) Record the screen with the U...

Re: Checkbox "x" is not clear for some region.("X" means "nope")

I must admit, I was also initially confused about this, and I'm from northern europe.

Red/green is not a good idea for the color blind, I think the safest solution is an "empty frame" and "filled frame" solution without symbols as such.

Re: Cargo Cable Car discussion

I don't believe in this kind of suggestion that aims to make logistic bots completely different from construction bots. We have construction bots, and nobody wants to see those gone. A construction bot can grab and item from a chest, move it to the right location, and even construct it (place it on ...

In support of twinsen and open/polite debate

Trying not to start a flamewar or an instant lock, but for me this is important to be said. I would prefer to live in a society (or be part of a community) where reading carefully and being open to new/different ideas is the default (instead of always being afraid of saying something wrong), and whe...

Re: High Res Concrete Textures - old style

Thanks for all the feedback guys, I will probably try to work on feedback and suggestions some more (and make a mod), but it may take a few days or even weeks for me to get around to that. Looks really good, many thanks! Is there a way to remove the borders from concrete tiles, which were introduced...

I love cliffs so much, not only they add so much to the game, they remind me of long gone old happy days of C&C games and everything related to them... And yet when it comes down to actual gameplay of Factorio, I just have no choice but to blow them away. It makes me feel so sad... Please discuss. ...

Re: High Res Concrete Textures - old style

I like this. May you build a version with same texture but without tiles? Like real cast concrete? Here you go - there are some weird tiling issues I will have to fix later, but this should do for a first version: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/5Wx0xR9A5tom4neiLjkLAYSiRU0Tz2QviHFJzoyDTl4zYH0FvFO...

Please post this in the mod section or the texture section. Where is the general discussion here, can't see it.

I made these over the last couple of days. I consider these to be work-in-progress still - especially the cracked version, but I think they are pretty usable already.

Blue, green, and red cars look WAAYYY better at alpha 1.0 than 0.5. Please let players select alpha values - if something looks bad we can always pick a different alpha value.
