Re: We support Ukraine

There are some people here flooding this thread with dozens of comment, trying to justify Russia's ongoing crimes... Can we have a banner on their posts to show that they are "repetitive poster" so we can safely ignore them... They are disgusting. Hope this is addressed by next FFF. Thanks...

Re: We support Ukraine

First post in this thread, here's my short comment: We will all agree that a country (Russia) is invading another country (Ukraine), destroying cities and killing countless civilians in the process. No matter what is Putin's problem with Ukraine, nothing justifies being a war criminal. The world is ...

Re: Is the Fluid Rework still planned?

You might add a wire, if fluid greater 1000, then activate both pumps That's called "workaround". If you play like a pro, you can really fix many things. Average and newbie players cannot do that. Maybe something for tips & tricks. Yes, it is a great idea for tips & tricks. Actual...

Re: Alt-F4 #25 - Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency!

Pollution-wise speaking (considering energy from solar), putting efficiency modules in beacons have no drawbacks, only advantages. Because beacons, while having a 480kW energy consumption, doesn't produce pollution on their own. We could investigate the effects of mixing different types of beacons. ...

Re: Some ideas for the "One big expansion pack"

Maybe going into ONI's direction with space exploration. And/or exploring some of the 4X mechanisms.

Or making an entire different game while keeping the engine and logistic (belts) of Factorio.

Re: Friday Facts #364 - 1.1 stable

Re: Come up with new infinite research

I can think of (like others suggested): -Stronger defenses (small HP buff to player/buildings) -Faster recharge speed for bots (although one could think that it makes some blueprints obsolete) -Bitter pacifier (could makes bitte...

Re: Is the Fluid Rework still planned?

I haven't run huge nuclear plant designs since years, but I remember it was a hassle because of the low throughput of pipes (had to run 4 sets of 8 parallel pipes IIRC, so 32 pipes. A lot of things have been announced about fluid, few made it to the core game. I'm curious if it's any better now (thr...

Re: Version 1.1.7

TL;DR: I official request an advanced interface option "I know what i'm doing, just let me flip everything." option that just 180° rotates fluid-assemblers, pipes, etc and disables the smartness. (I thought the prevent-fluid-mixing saga told us a thing about smartness.) Yeah that would be...

Very interesting video.

@OP, if you only reached green science, you haven't seen most of the game. There is no goal, the rocket is a lie (just kidding).

Re: "Skip" button for loading screen

Thanks for the reply, I didn't know about the menu sprites. It's still great to be able to play Factorio on my notebook (Intel Pentium N4200), I would have never imagined possible to beat Krastorio on it. It really tells something about how well optimized the game is. I can't wait to enjoy the new H...

"Skip" button for loading screen

Quite often, Factorio.exe is executed just to change the mod config. Slowest computers can take up to a minute loading sprites. What if we could skip the loading of sprites? We would just need a button (disabled by default in the settings) or a shortcut.

Very good FFF, I just wanted to express my reserve about the home screen. The excitement when starting/loading the game from the home screen is all about hopping into the game (a bit like the inception movie?). If you jump from a in-game screen to another in-game screen, there is less "woah&quo...

[kovarex] [0.18.38] Modded Power Armor grid tiny with 1366x768 and 100% UI size

Hi, I encountered a bug with the mod Krastorio 2, V0.18, with my 1366x768 resolution monitor, using UI size of 100%. I cannot view my entire armor grid, it's a small rectangle few pixels high (I can still scroll through). Without the mod, the base game UI display 2 columns: one for "Armor"...

I would suggest a simple fix that shouldn't break anything: Instead of reducing pipes hitbox, why not reduce only underground pipes hitbox?
