Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

While I hate to tell anyone "You can't have that thing you like," my personal dislike of logistics bots does make me think about what we'd have if that devtime had been spent elsewhere. If they hadn't been coding logistics bots, would we have more varieties of belts? Programmable splitters...

Re: Friday Facts #223 - Reflections on 2017

I hope whoever does your in-game, user invokable mini-tutorials gets enough credit. Factorio's approach to tutorials should be industry standard. When a new concept shows up in game, you have the OPTION of dropping yourself into a consequence-free holodeck to practice the skill until you pass the pr...

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

I'm generally in favor of those changes listed. My only issue is that the inventory UI is already taking up a tiny box on my high resolution screen, so the addition of tabs just seems to be further compartmentalizing this tiny box. All that relevant information could be displayed at the same time if...

Re: Version 0.15.5

Looking great guys. Any chance we'll see steam in the fluid section of the Production Statistics? I think it's the only liquid you're not tracking at this point, and it would be very helpful for doing metrics on boiler/heat exchanger configurations.

Re: "Omni" Builds, infinitely scalable designs!

What is the purpose of your factory? The purpose is to build absolutely anything I need. When power runs low, I can get a set of solar panels/accumulators building quickly. Ammo, robots, rocket parts, modules of any size, all these things are easily slotted in and begin building immediately. Robots...

Re: "Omni" Builds, infinitely scalable designs!

Where are going to have issues far sooner is with belt throughput, belts can only move some many items per second Yup. And I've actually made lines so long horizontally that, even sending them fully compressed express belts full of iron plate, they still run out. When this happens, it's time to cre...

"Omni" Builds, infinitely scalable designs!

My designs are very different from most of what I see on this board. So different in fact that I was compelled to post. They're intended to grow with the player, from early game to late game, getting as large as necessary without ever needing a teardown. Case in point: This refinery gets as small or...

Woah. Those screenshots are scary and awesome. What world settings are you using? I'm currently running a game with Enemy Bases High Frequency, Big Size, Good Richness and they're nowhere near as big and intimidating as the ones in your pictures.

Re: Why I really hate/dislike the game

I recently played the campaign and found it to be a fun level of challenge. The biter nests were nasty, but no problem against a turret crawl.

Tree clearing with construction bots

I've seen a lot of talk about clearing pesky forests with tanks, flamethrowers, rockets, even manually. But I've not seen much discussion about by far my favorite method: Construction bots! Take your deconstruction planner, drag click over any number of trees, and blamo! You even get to keep the woo...

Re: Tank upgrade

I also noticed that the tank cannon seems underwhelming compared to laser turrets, but when compared to any other weapon, it's plenty powerful enough. I have to disagree there. The measuring stick here is the combat shotgun. Using four steel, I can make 1 cannon shell and deal half damage to a bite...

Re: Tank upgrade

In my opinion, the reason the tank is great early game and lacking late game is lack of research. If you don't buy all 6 ranks of Shotgun Shell damage, the combat shotgun is pretty blah. However, with the upgrades, it becomes a killing machine. We have no such upgrades for the tank. (It gets a littl...
