Re: CzechMate: A remote-controlled chess board

I don't know if you have seen this thing going around https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comme ... ontroller/ could be a useful interface, turn on one combinator to indicate selection, move to select the desired square, then turn it off to switch the control to move piece.

Boats

I have one thing that I have really been wanting to see added to the game. (apologizes if this have been suggested to much already) Boats, Boats would act somewhat like trains. They might not be as versatile as trains but I have been longing for something to do all the water in the game, and Boats w...

Re: Easter in Factorio

I found 24 :3 Do the artifacts dropped by the nest in the bottom left count as eggs?
