Re: surveillance planes??

scout drones? which upgrade to assault drones and bomber drones later? (attack would use bullets for ammo and bombers would hold a rocket) add a combat drone bay and any drones put in it would automatically patrol that area, it could even be an upgraded form of radar

Re: 17+ IDEAS to make FACTORIO an even more AWESOME game!

1.) Underground-Layer(s) interesting idea, at most i would have 1 under ground layer, but if i had the choice between another layer and limited terraforming i would choose terraforming 2.)

Re: Liquid Logistics. Add liquids to your Logistics System.
