Use of the factorio name

Are there any specific rules around the use of the factorio name? Clearly sites like factorioprints.com get away with using the name so far, but before starting down a project like that, which is related to factorio, but isn't blessed by the developers themselves, I wanted to know if there are any e...

Love it!

That looks like a fun "out of the box" build. Awesome work :)

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

Congratulations on the launch! I'm sure the dev team might still be in a bit of a stressed state, waiting to see how 1.0 works out, if there any any crazy bugs, etc. Fingers crossed that it's a smooth one. That being said, when we do get past the post-launch anxiety, I think now is a good time to do...

What's the plan for 1.0?

Assuming I am reading the latest FF correctly, tomorrow (In less than 24 hours because time zones) is the official release of version 1.0 of Factorio. Yet I'm not seeing a whole lot of activity here on the forum, the reddit, twitter, the official steam listing for the game, etc. doing a whole lot to...

Re: Friday Facts #356 - Blueprint library for real

The changes look like they're thoughtfully moving in the right direction as always, awesome! As for the motivation part: We've all been there (Or will eventually...).

Re: Friday Facts #352 - New website

100% agree with the framework bloat problem. It's like you cannot make a website these days without 5000 node.js dependencies, absolute madness.

Re: Canonical web resource of versions

Is there any documentation explaining what “alpha” means in this context? Is it the full game client? It means the same as it does on https://factorio.com/download - "Alpha is the standard full-featured build." Awesome! That’s exactly what I was looking for :) On another note, do we have ...

Re: Canonical web resource of versions

It was meant as a temporary solution. html is machine readable (just need the right lib to parse it) dunno which language he’s (she?) programming, but this kind of simple list is parseable with simple regex-stacking. It’s a BTN solution - of course. That’s definitely a possible temp solution. As ot...

Re: Canonical web resource of versions

Something like this : https://updater.factorio.com/get-available-versions ? Yes! It's a great start, although I think it could do with a few modifications for these kinds of purposes. It lists which version is currently "stable", but not explicitly which is "latest". Secondly it...

Canonical web resource of versions

This is part question part idea, as I don't know if it's already easily attainable somewhere. As someone who runs a server using a Docker container I've created myself, I'd love a way to automate the process of building a new container, when a new version of the game is out. My best idea currently i...

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.

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 wher...

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.
