Re: Is there a modpack manager for Factorio?

A lot of them went down/stopped when the game officially supported mod handling in-game. The only thing thats worth an external mod manager now is being able to launch a set of mods with factorio once.

But im breaching the limit one belt can handle, im going to need to use robots i need to make more. Edit: just noticed you are using efficiency modules, from ...

Re: When do you use logi bots?

The first use of them comes to when you get and make them. Either to make side items easily or to have your bots always fill you up with some iron plates. Both are usually the first use. Such as making a machine on the side that requests items to make a red long inserter, something you might not nee...

Re: Is the jump from science pack 2 to 3 too large?

Ive read some silly posts, people talking about things they dont understand, and more. The way it stands, it is perfectly fine. For a new play, sp1 is easy. Jumpibg to sp2 will require more space and time depending on the person and what they have already seen of the game. Sp3 is yes, its a big jump...

My only assumption is you are targeting the individuals that use them to dump all their products into, and then into storage.

Re: Friday Facts #128 - Back down to earth

but wanting the game nearly implayable for the sake of challenge should not discourage 99% from the players to actually play. If that was a response from me, people that go logistic bot bases, know and will come across problems with bots. As people with belt bases, will know of the limitations like...

Gentlemen, ladies, please stop freaking the hell out and suggesting stupid crap like requiring lubricant. All Bots require is electricity and they're still way better than this will be without some significant improvements in belt throughput. Get it through your head. This is worse than bots as cur...

Re: First map, ended up looking a bit like a revolver

this is really, really nice for a first save. My only complaint, because i have to lay it out, is the train network loops. (through stations are fine)
But man, my first .. i got like 14 hours and decided to make a new world, more organized with what i had learned.
