Re: finished the starting tutorial (maybe)

Yes the introduction tutorial is harder then the old death world
deafeningly not appropriate for a new player.
Wavers every 5 seconds from both sides, just got overrun

What, not released today, but you promised last week. I even left work early to see the new 0.17 relase!
No we didn't. Where are you reading that?
What, not released today? I just thrown my ID card on my boss desk and told him I quit so I can play!

Re: Friday Facts #257 - NPE/Campaign update

inb4: didnt read the other posts of this thread i like the rockets changes including the escape pod idea. I would prefer it, that you have to enter the escape pod at launch to win the game . Additionally the launch could focus on the Rocket (like scrolling up the map) at launch until the "you won" ...

I don't know anything about game coding.
Just wanted to ask what is the difference between coding for OpenGL 3.2 VS Vulkan?
Is Vulkan harder to do?

Re: Friday Facts #227 - Rendering, Trees & Scenario talk

What do you think about "Factorio RTS" scenario? It will be something like: PvP. You start in god mod without a character. You start with a Roboport,a few bots, a chest of some starting supplies, and the necessary technology. (already placed) You cannot place anything directly, only ghosts (for the ...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

My suggestion would be to either completely remove the Worker robot cargo size research, or more likely, to multiply the charging time several times. This is not solving any problem. All I'm reading is "now you need to build more robots and roboports" I think you need to experiment with adding a la...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Personally I don't understand this "buff the belts" argument. What is the problem with current belts? You upgrade yellow to red, red to blue and then you put down multiple blue. Putting down multiple parallel belts is not a chore is actually a nice evolution of the puzzle in the mid-late game. It's...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

I'm sure this was mentioned before - the same way you have barreling, why don't you have packaging? Put a stack of items into a "box" and then send boxes on a belt? In case of metal plates, that would increase the belt throughput 100 times. Like this mod, but limited to belts? https://mods.factorio...

Re: Container belts

The logistic system (but not necessarily the flying robots aspect of it) just make too much sense to take out. The reason flying logistic bots become overpowered is that they take up zero space and pick up/drop things instantaneously. As someone else said they act like teleporters. If we could have...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Stop removing OPTIONAL features!
Why remove logistic robots?
Why remove wagon separation?

Factorio is not an FPS, you don't need to 100% balance everything!

Sometime I like to start a "belt only" map, and sometime I like to go for full logistic robot megabase, why take this options from me?

Re: Friday Facts #221 - 0.16 is out

So many bug fixes so fast it's amazing!

It's good that you removed using underground belts to compress belts, it felt cheaty to do it and it's unintuitive.
But I think side loading is a legitimate way to compress a belt

This is not cool and I don't like it:

Re: Emergency power with delay (Combinators help)

The problem with your setup is the low capacity of accumulators. This design you are trying to implement is working fine if you want to implement steam backup for solar power. In this case your accumulator charge decays slowly giving you an opportunity to make a frame for say 50-90% of accu charge ...
