Re: Factorio version 0.17 - Now stable

I just want to say your Assesment of World of Warcraft analogy of "LFG" is horrifically wrong. You claim people are likely to have find a solution around the group if they have a new player? That is because WoW Classic is in its Honey Moon Period. In reality look at existing games like Guild Wars 2...

Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

I rather like the way https://mods.factorio.com/mod/replicating-belts did this. ... For instance, if I want a couple of belts to cross a couple of other belts, I could lay down the underneathies, then the connecting belts between. And then repeat this process a bunch of times for each belt I want t...

Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

On some of the stuff brought up in the WoW section, I think that it is important to understand WHY they added the tools they did. If for example, you were the only person in your group of friends who plays, or if you aren't very good in chatting, being able to find a group to play this content migh...

Re: Friday Facts #313 - Light at the end of the bug tunnel

also you are not supposed to read those Game Journalists's sites anymore, we are not in the 90s anymore and they are known to only produce hit pieces and hate clicks. YouTube constantly exposes them for what they are. so yeah, if you sneeze, you got a disease, if you speak, you speak profanity, if ...

What was the pub you were in yesterday? Anyway, glad to see so many bugs squished. Thank you. Yes. Pcgames needs a new detail to spin out of proportion. Imagine it were called "Burger Joint".

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

Underground pipes that are (silently?) not connected are really a bad fix for the issue of the removed half pipe. Since underground pipes are already ideally just one looong pipe I would have guessed a better solution would be to remove both halfs of the underground pipe. Either only if it would est...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

There are 2 key concepts in your quote. "incentivise" and "properly" incentivize is generally considered a positive reinforcement or reward based action, though you are right that putting road blocks on alternatives does indirectly incentivize the correct path. There just are going to be way too ma...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

The detrimental habit is when someone new to the game starts to use designs from the internet before even having thoughts of his own about a solution. It is not about players who already built a solution and now try to optimize it. That is my point, and that is also why I think achievements are too...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

I'm not sure the achievement lock would help much since I would assume most players start hunting for achievements only after having played the game through once or twice and that would often be too late to stop that detrimental habit. I don't think that it is a detrimental habit, pulling in blue p...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

The Game start option of allowing or blocking importing bp's would probably be the best way to implement this as opposed to moving the code off into an "Official" mod. IF (and I stress IF) they did that, what about having certain achievements be locked behind the no import config. Would make Spoon ...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

And besides removing the library wouldn't even solve the problem. It'd just lead to people posting pictures instead of strings (many already do), and other people rebuilding those pictures in their games. Or just start sharing savegame files of empty maps with blueprints. As a designer you have to ...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

So practically Vanilla should be inferior for better playability. But considering the development history, many of the great aspects of Vanilla were adapted from mods. IMO players shouldn’t be required to use mods to play an „adequate“ Vanilla. Define inferior. There is no absolute in fun. Bobs Mod...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

But that people are pissed because they need to install a mod shows exactly that the change would have an impact to trading! Because people who want it all easy have the same if not more reluctance to install a mod as well. And BOTH importer and exporter need to install the mod before they can trad...

As for moving blueprint import/export into a mod: I think that will change nothing. The people that want to import/export blueprints from the internet will simply install the mod and the same amount of trading will happen. All you managed is to piss of the people that play the game "correctly" and ...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Oh man pipes as a electric network would be so easy to made. Production = Sum(producers) Consumption = Sum(consumer) If consumption > production -> reduceSpeed(consumers) Throughput is limited to the smallest pipe in the whole network. As vanilla has only one type of pipe, it can be coded in hard a...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Any iOS can handle BT mouse and BT keyboard quite well. Thats not an argument. And how many iOS users have a mouse and keyboard or would use one with their phone? Sure, Factorio fanatics would buy them (and use them) extra for this game, but you practically shrunk that big potential market to insig...

Re: Version 0.17.60

Look closer, it does : bottom right, under "Consumed by". I think the "Consumed by" is fitting but also the problem. I always need a few moments to make the connection that this is the equivalent of "Used to produce" or "Ingredient of". By the way, since we are still on the oil topic: What is the r...
