Re: Friday Facts #330 - Main menu and File Share Shenanigans

If we are talking about the main menu, you should make either it's background or foreground more lively at least. It doesn't give a good impression. Either have it load a factory as a background (similar to what open ttd does), a video, or exchange the movable window (which is movable for no reason)...

Re: Friday Facts #323 - Animated water

Is it just me, or was the water always somewhat animated in the game?

It's probably just me.

Yeah it's just me and what might have been some lighter optical illusion. Apart from fish of course.

Re: Friday Facts #318 - New Tooltips

Just talking off the top of my head, but the one entity type that seems like it would benefit from batching the most is belts. Yes, belts, inserters too. Bots don't have to build multiple entities in the same tick. They could instead be assigned to as many ghosts of the same type as they can carry,...

Came here to say... that I'm loving the new Factorio Shirt that I have bought. Looking forward the day when someone actually recognizes it. (Probably take long since winter is coming.)

Re: Friday Facts #315 - New test servers

Super-interested in the idea of turning off the "base" mod (then maybe the ability to load in a sub-set of base mod features, e.g. terrain). We used to be able to do that but the game doesn't let us disable the base mod anymore. If turning it off would technically break mods, why not make each mod ...

Re: Factorio version 0.17 - Now stable

Wait a minute!
0.17 had EXACTLY 70 releases so far. If you thought you can get away with saying "nearly" because it's 69, you might be right, but it's 70. Because we are also counting 0.17.0 aren't we?

Re: Friday Facts #313 - Light at the end of the bug tunnel

This is probably why you shouldn't have admitted to the release of a game slowing you down. This loose approach to game development however does seem to be paying off, especially when smart people know exactly when to take a break.

Re: Friday Facts #311 - New remnants 3

Uhhh... now conveyor belts, walls, pipes and heat pipes are screaming for remnants that connect.

And let's not forget the copper cables of power poles.

I'm probably going too far. This should be technically achievable but like... not worth it.

Re: Version 0.17.67

Changes The camera will zoom to center instead of zooming to cursor in God controller, Ghost controller and Spectator controller. Nooooooo! This is going to mess with my memory so much... I was so used to this not only in Factorio but basically everywhere where such thing is applicable.
