Re: Fluids are killing me

The thing about oil is that it seems very out of place for this game as if it was designed with a very different mindset for an entirely different game. What do you mean? Liquids and oil refining with 3 products have been very long time part of the game. in other system in this game do we have to j...

Re: Fluids are killing me

This may not be a question. But it's been an amazing ride all the way until i reach the Oil and advanced oils section of the game play and i lost all my apatite to play. 40 hours and i love each one of them but i can't understand how to make oil run with no problem without using these circuits.

Re: Nerf the Portable Fusion Reactor?

PFR is not overpoered, it is ridiculously underpowered for endgame purposes, especially with marathon. It's intentionally underpowered, I think. Otherwise power armor will overshadow everything else. It seems to be balanced for combat purposes but clearly underpowered for endgame building. I usuall...

Re: Defence economy balance

What I find crazy is how OP landmines are. They make all of the other military entities redundant in comparison. Once you get landmines, biters become a sideshow to the game. Does mines have any significant effect to behemoth biters? The other thing that is utterly unbalanced, is artillery on islan...

Re: Game optimization and playability

Factorio is extremely well optimized. It can handle tens of thousands of active entities with . I think there is not much to do. There will be limit somewhere in any case and it is easy to break it with building bots. If you got 8 times more performance by threading it would increase time before you...

Re: Come up with new infinite research

Not sure why wube wanted to remove biters from the endgame, if that was their intention. In my opinion this is very good change for all building games. At beginning game is more surviving and builds are fast and simple. Then focus moves slowly from defense to active conquering of area with increasi...

Re: Come up with new infinite research

I suggest speed of construcion. The best way is to reduce energy consumption of construction bots or increase output of portable fusion reactors. That would give huge boost to personal and spidertron's building capacity but not disturb balance of bot bases because logistic bots could be as they are....

Re: Portable Fusion Reactor visual appearance in relation of visual totality of game

Nuclear fuel, perhaps? :D I agree that fusion reactor is in wrong game. I thought always that it was placeholder for some better idea for energy production. I would replace fusion reactor with expendable radiothermal generator. It would be build from nuclear fuel cells and other high tech stuff. It...

Re: Prevent Clearing Power Cables from Poles While Shift-Placing Blueprints

Removing of connections should be behind more complex key combination. There is no need to make it many times in building but it make annoying unintentional problems when for example I adjust inserters in stations and mouse hits to poles.

Re: 1.35k S/M bases should be more popular

I thought most people researched mining productivity and bot speed I think so too. But in my opinion resource gathering is essential part of logistic game and high mining productivity makes minefields practically infinite. That may be different with those who use beacons to increase throughput to s...

Re: Spidertrons need to be damaged by explosions

Have you considered a tileable expanding wall blueprint? You just place wall/artillery modules one after another to expand and can remove it when you are done. I have tried it. It works, but spidertron is more interesting way to do it. When I am at that phase in my game that I conquer my main area,...

Re: Spidertrons need to be damaged by explosions

Yes, that's called artillery. If it's not fast enough for you, bring more artillery or research more shooting speed. If it doesn't clear enough space, research more range. I do not like artillery. I have to build massive defenses around artillery base and move them always I move the cannon because ...

Re: Spidertrons need to be damaged by explosions

Even without PVP, [accidental] [self] friendly fire should be at least as dangerous in spidertron as in a tank. No thanks. If spidertron took damage from explosions destroying massive biter colonies would become very impractical because spidertron would destroy itself with own rockets. Now it is us...

Re: Bots versus Belts

Sorry, what's the math behind that? JIT demands that you optimize perfectly so there isn't anything less/or more than what is required to build. And factorio is all about JIT. Factorio has nothing to do with JIT. In real life everything costs and JIT is a way to optimize costs. In Factorio everythi...
