Re: Friday Facts #349 - The 1.0 plan

An idea (and at the same time: a wish) for Marketing is to do a Wallpaper-Engine-version of the rocket-rider in the FF.

Is the image "inspired" by "Dr. Strangelove - or how I learnt to love the bomb?"

Re: Friday Facts #306 - Experimental Demo

Three more things: - the picture is to the left of the original lab - It´s a dirty trick to have worms appear before cleaning out of the starting area. It nearly did me in - it would give the player a reason - an understandable & valid, even if not entirely just reason - to remorseless kill the ...

Re: Friday Facts #306 - Experimental Demo

I played - and survived - the demo. While having 800+ hours under my belt, I managed to survive partly because the "objective to be fulfilled: produce lots of ammo". IMO it would be helpful to put more stress on this objective, e.g. write "- you´re gonna need it!" after the objec...

Re: [Mod 0.14] Build Statistic for your Factory 0.0.3

Hi darkfrei, thank you for your mod. I didn´t realize at first it was only for servers - is there any way one can use it in singleplayer mode to build a txt or csv, so that one can visualize this data? Since installing & de-installing the mod (due to A: only server and B: Bug): my game crashes c...

14.22 Crash on "Error while running event...ID21...Build-Statistic control.lua:index field "?"

Hi, my game crashes consistently shortly after the savegame with the error-report in the screenshot. I´ve installed many mods, however, disabling some possible "culprits" does not cancel the error appearing after ca. 5 seconds. Could you also fix the savegame/ tell me how to do it? Love th...

Re: Do you cooperate with them?

I didn´t think of any problems because of naming rights.

I just thought it a hilarious coincidence that a small company in the field of smart industry, with a factorio-like name and the slogan "factory solutions - your industry under control" is located just 10 km away from them!

[0.13.2] minor issue: Stack size of Radars, of Pumpjack

Maybe not a bug, but inconsistent:

In comparison to the number of uses and the stack size of e.g. locomotives (5), wagons (10?), chemical plants (10)

the stack size of Radars (50?) and Pumpjacks (20) seems way to high

Re: Thank you (Make the dev-team happy today!)

I hope I can congratulate to you being a father at the same time as the game made it on steam!

Thanks for the game - more than 420 positive reviews: totally justified!

Automation on Mars

Hi Kovarex,

when reading about Friday Facts 106 my uncle brought up that in 1990 this had been suggested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Case_for_Mars.
And thanks for the Link - now I am also hooked on Waitbutwhy.com

Re: Thank you (Make the dev-team happy today!)

Hi Team,

I want to thank you very much for all the continued hard work you pour into the game - and for making such a great game!

And congrats because of the (well-deserved) 100.000 people who already bought it. May the number soar to 1 Mio!

Bye

Request for data-export to xls or csv

Hi, unfortunately, I am not a programmer - therefore I cannot do it myself. I have also searched the forums for an "how to". No success. My hope is that A) someone is willing to write this and implement it into his/her mod, B) that it is not "too much" work to program this, and C...

Hi, my idea is the implementation of an option to export data of your game so that you can visualize this data beautifully in Excel or Tableau or... Data e.g. like "Time played", "Throughput of XY per minute...", Attacks,... Mined ressources... SOME of this data is already availa...
