Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Because I finished writing my post 2 minutes after Koub's moderation notice: Many if not all the suggestions were considered and several of them I even implemented. I already tried to explain the downsides of each of them And many tried to explain the downsides of Wube's chosen change. In short, the...

Re: Version 0.17.60

Arguments agains change will never change. The problem is this change is logically nonsensical and is on a different scale of magnitude in terms of significance compared to other changes Wube has made which some have voiced opinions against in the past. Having stack sizes 2^n vs a multiple of 10 is...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

What I'd like to know is why all the 2-output proposals fell through. As of last notice there were 2 options that didn't seem to conflict with any of the devs' ideas/principles, petroleum+light and petroleum+heavy, and we know that the petroleum+heavy one was being tested (which I found interesting...

Re: Version 0.17.60

If you aren't against mods: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Pre0-17-60Oil I'm not against mods in general, I'm against mods that fix bad design decisions. That is pretty good then. You will have to play the game as it is designed. After a playthrough you will see that professional game designers know...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

I have always had confidence in the Factorio dev team as they have a history of steady and consistent improvements to the game, but these last 2 FFFs have been something else. Please, whatever changes you make, do not go through with this FFF balance change. Even if this post won't do any good in ch...

I like this cheat code better. /c game.player.insert{name="rocket-defense", count=1} At that point you might as well skip the running Factorio.exe bit altogether.

Re: Automatic mining bases expansion (or eliminating the nee

Resource fields should get bigger as the distance to the starting area increases. This way you are still forced to get out and explore, but you don't get to that point where your resource usage is so big that the fields deplete faster than you can connect others. If you go really far out you should...

It takes less than a week for money from your bank account to go into paypal, Not 3 months lol. Absolutely no one would use paypal if that was the case.

So you could automate destroying biter nests and putting the artifacts in storage, cut down forests without having to build dozen...

Re: Version 0.11.1

You miss the whole point. People still use this software, despite being outdated and insecure. The developer already said that it doesn't take any work to make it compatible, just one check mark. It's not the task of the devs to make people switch to a newer version. People will stop using it when ...

Re: Suggestion: Secondary Ending

The Rocket Defense is merely a placeholder. The devs have said so on multiple occasions and it is obvious if you look at the lack of a graphic when you place it that end game and post game content is going to be completely revamped. Personally I'm not too hot about the way rocket defense works or yo...

Re: New Music Mod

If you drop an .ogg into the ambient folder I would think that it should play in game, shouldn't it?

I did so and will update if I hear it.

[0.11.1] Big Worms Now Show Up In Early Game

Wasn't quite sure if this is actually a bug or intentional. It wasn't mentioned in the changelogs so I don't really know. Worms are bugs either way right? :P In a new game I started I noticed less than 3 hours in that there are big and medium worms already. I never saw big worms so early in any of m...

Re: Easy way to kill biter nests

Well I haven't played around much with the tank so far, and since it's such a new addition I think it makes sense to at least somewhat ignore it in this discussion. But it does have some marked disadvantages to the "Exoskeleton Shield Destroyer Purple Shell Combat Shotgun" combo. Of course that is a...

Re: gun vs laser turret balance: play around with range

ssilk while gun turrets may actually do more DPS when fully upgraded, it takes longer to set up properly and the reward is that you have to continually pump them full of ammo which can cost an awful lot of resources, while with lasers if you have a big enough energy network you don't have to spend a...

Re: Easy way to kill biter nests

Destroyer Capsules are actually very effective. They absolutely eviscerate everything so quickly. Once you can spawn 15-20 of them, and you have shields, exoskeletons and a fully upgraded combat shotgun, you don't even need tactics of any sort. All you need to do is charge straight in and go BLAMBLA...
