Lazy Bastard achievement question

I have a few questions for the achievement - hope someone here can answer it. Tried looking around, but there doesn't seem much information on it Right, only 111 crafting actions. Some crafting actions produce two or more things, still only counts as one crafting action. Question 1: Does mining coun...

Re: Friday Facts #345 - Unit group collision mask & Artillery shell particle

I don't like the idea of bugs able to cross water - the natural barrier that offers is a life-saver for most of my games.

water crossing bugs.. oh please gods no

external power supply for power armor?

So... I was thinking. Why should I absolutely have to sit around and wait for my dinky modular armor's solar panels to recharge things, when I have a huge solar farm powering everything else I tried googling a bit - maybe I didn't use the right search terms - but I found nothing. My idea is simple: ...

Satisfactory - a FPS version of Factori (from e3)

so... at E3 this was just introduced:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5TogHASrCo

looks an awful lot like a factori clone, just in 3d, and with the player being in first perseon.

thoughts?


EDIT: I hadn't seen the last friday fact update - didn't know that the devs already knew about this

Re: Power 'cycling' controls?

Ok, I've finally had time to test this. I can't seem to get my accumulator to output a proper signal. if i have an accumulator next to a water pump, and connect them with red wire - then the accumulator claims to be outputting a signal from 100 to 0, based on its charge level. It uses signal A. Then...

Re: Power 'cycling' controls?

Just put a accumulator next to an offshore pump. Connect the pump with a red or green wire. Set the pump to enable if A<10 or whatever you choose. A is the accumulator charge and the pump will only enable if it drops below 10%. Connect all your pumps like that with the same wire or another accu. br...

Power 'cycling' controls?

Heyo I have a nice big ol' factory, loads of accumulators, and huge solar farm that covers all my daylight power needs and then some, and then a solid backup of boilers/steam gens however when nightfall comes, its the steamers that kick in - not the accumulators. I want that to be the other way arou...

Re: Early-Midgame bottleneck

I'm familiar with this problem - sort of My solution is usually to go big very early - basically spread out your factory to a HUGE early on. Sure, it'll make bug-attack response tricky (that's what auto-saves and gun turrets are for - also concrete roads and cars) but it'll mean that you can cram mo...

as long as they new hotkeys are rebindable - then this looks really good

Re: Food and sleep?

Anyway, right now in the game you go weeks if not months on end, day and night, with no sleep and nothing to eat. Interesting. That's how I play the game too... doesn't mean that you should encourage it :p but fair enough and I wouldn't mind if it came as an option - but I would like the option

I searched - and didn't find any threads on this... maybe my google-fu is weak, but who knows?

Re: Friday Facts #189 - Specifying the 1.0

Yea, a Steel Pipe version with a longer reach wouldn't be a bad idea. If at all possible, a higher max flow rate on them wouldn't be a bad idea either - just not sure if it is possible since the flow characteristics of a fluid seem defined in the fluid type, not in the transfer medium. Maybe if the...

And i must say: I am a little disapointed that the heat exchangers look like oldschool shell and tube heat exchangers, not more modern plate stack heat exchangers....
