Re: Version 0.17.57

Modding Added a prototype property for hiding recipes from the player crafting GUI. Can't find it on https://wiki.factorio.com/Prototype/Recipe , what's it called?

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

Grenade stays as it’s a very useful weapon against large groups of enemies, like biters or trees. Yeah, those fearsome trees, our worst enemy... I prefer Flamethrowers, nothing is as satisfying as seeing a giant forest burn to ashes. The only thing I would disagree with here are the productivity mo...

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

I am extremely entertained that the main argument provided in favor of keeping the research queue is player choice or keeping it an option when the also-optional choice to use mods exists. :lol: This should not be overlooked: If the dev team ultimately doesn't believe this is worth putting in the b...

Re: Friday Facts #247 - Pricing and its exploits

Ok, I have to ask. Since you are located in the Czech republic, which is unarguably one of the poorest countries of the EU, why on earth is it possible that you are selling the game on GOG for ~$8.30, but for 24.29EUR in the Czech republic. I was really rooting for you. But after disclosing this in...

Re: Price change

It should be noted that the DLC discussion is pointless or, at best, theoretical: It would be illegal to withhold them from anyone who has bought the game already.

Re: Forum Games: A Complaint About Their Closure

Yeah I agree. I can understand wanting to limit them either in quantity or location but locking them entirely is a bit much. Maybe have a separate sub-forum for them and people who don't want notifications can just turn it off for that sub-forum. As for post count inflation, who cares? Post count i...

The Bots try to parse your Request, but they get stuck trying to find a way through an infinite amount of new labyrinths, get overloaded and crash down.

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

All I ask if you do choose to debuff something you don't like - *please* ensure we can reverse that decision via the mod API to restore the game to how a large part of the community thinks it should be without having to sacrifice things like game performance. That is the main point. As long as you ...

The Rocket Fuel is still burning when the bots get it, so they melt(It is not jet fuel...) and crash into the landscape.
I request a hose and a pump to extinguish the fires.

About those little details you mentioned... We will get a full changelog of all changes for 0.15.0? Anyways, the shader for the nightvision is looking really nice. What do the little symbols under the tutorials mean?

Re: What are Fissures and how do I mine them?

They are added by Angels Mods, you will need a special building for them. At least if it looks like a big rip in the earth. No idea what the name is right now, but it should be on the very bottom of the tab with all the refinig stuff from Angels (all the refining steps and buildings) and says someth...

Re: Gödelization of Factorio

Here's a really crazy and extreme thought. One of the overriding themes of Factorio is to automate everything possible. Taken to the extreme, one could imagine this automation could include the development and maintenance of software, including the game Factorio itself. Maybe even automate release ...
