What's the point?
There is none, and that is exactly what appeals.
Agreed.

Similarly to Minecraft (And especially modded Minecraft, from which Factorio draws inspiration), the point is to play the game, and have fun with it.

Re: Friday Facts #331 - 0.18.0 release & Train pathfinder changes

We made 0.18 a major version because it will break mods with all the changes we are making, and while initially it hasn't broken that much, many things to come will have a bigger impact, such as the Character GUI. Does this mean that later 0.18.x releases will break mods again? I think you should t...

What the Frick. If you're going to disagree with people, at least do it in a respectful manner. And please understand that different developers work in different ways. Just because this works for you, doesn't mean you should undermine that others may be of a different opinion. What I and @Hanse00 s...

Nope, we definitely want it to be explicit.
I totally understand wanting to be explicit in supported versions, but can we explicitly support multiple?

Eg.

Code: Select all

"factorio_versions": ["0.17", "0.18"]

Allow a single mod version to support multiple factorio versions

Perhaps this has been discussed in the past, and I was unable to find it. If that's the case, my bad. I'd like to see my mod be able to support multiple factorio versions out of the box, by making the "factorio_version" variable in the info.json a list. This is so that, in those cases where factorio...

0.18 not listen as major version

Hey peeps!

I would fix this myself, but I haven’t created myself an account yet.
On the page: https://wiki.factorio.com/Version_history, 0.18 is listed as a minor version of 0.17, rather than its own major version.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

What happens when people realise 1 belt split between coal and iron isn't enough? That electric furnaces are larger than coal ones? That you actually need a lot more science production than you walled yourself into fitting? I would argue all these situations are at the core of the gameplay of Facto...

Something else that I've not really seen anyone mention... you're making all these changes so that people can more easily get into oil, to get chem science packs. what happens when they do eventually research advanced oil processing, then realise they're going to have to completely redesign their b...

Re: Version 0.17.0

The quick bar takes a little bit of playing to get used to. There's so much muscle memory so far that makes me go "wtf where are my it-- oh in the inventory". But I do really like the approach, and I'm sure I will get used to it in a few more hours of playtime. Thank you to the whole dev-team, for 6...

Is there a counter for official release time?
Nope.

The most exact time to count down to would be “probably next week”, so I guess you could say in a couple of hours, depending on time zone?

Anything beyond that would be pure speculation.

Re: Train build

There are of course always tradeoffs to things. I personally prefer the extra cost of a loco and fuel, for the simplicity I feel it adds to my rail network. Instead of having to waste space with loops, I like to build my stations as the one in my drawing below. With the correct use of regular (green...

I love the philosophy of making it better at the cost of the status quo.

Re: Smart Train Stops

Being able to manually control signals could work as well, not only for this, but other places where you might want more control over where / how the trains go. You could for example have an extra siding for an idle train, and using the signals, you could deploy it to your line when demand is high e...

Hey there everyone! I've decided to try my hands at modding, and wanted to make a railway crossing, which flashes it's lights when a train is approaching, so I don't die. An obvious part of the process is detecting an inbound train, to do this, I've been trying to find out how the signals work, howe...
