Re: Friday Facts #315 - New test servers

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Re: Biters Before you do anything else with them there has to be some lore to them, to explain their illogical behaviour. Then perhaps some logical changes could be made. Let me explain.... this planet Nauvis has been home to the Biters for a long time. Yet when we get here they are NOT omnipresent....

Stealth Biters

TL;DR A new class of biters for later game. Chameleon Biters that can infiltrate your base. Only visible whilst they are moving. When still they look like a rock, tree, inserter, assembler etc. What ? I suggest a new late game development of the biters. Stealth biters. They should be able to sneak ...

Re: Friday Facts #255 - Construction tools

So last week was Pitchforks and burning torches. Now this week it is all Festivities, celebrations fireworks and cheering. I thought this was Factorio, not Rollercoaster....

But hurrah, hurrah, hurrah... love all the changes mentioned today... 100% wonderful.

Re: Making trains stop faster.

This seems to work with a 1-1 train..... but would it work with a 4-8-4 train..... I have seen those things plow through another train with no problem. Or does a sideways train offer more resistance.?

Re: [Solved] Can't change the data directory.

Pardon my stupidity, but I WANT to use the Zip version, becasuse I want to run different versions with different mod packs etc. But everytime I install anew version it somehow connects back to the mods and save on my primary version, which was installed by Steam. Does anyone know what config file I ...

Re: Friday Facts #238 - The GUI update (Part II)

As has been said already the yellow and orange are similar... but I think that their position will give away which is which.... we will get used to it. The Queue "button " on top of the item graphic is subtle I understand why Kovarex missed it. But again it is something that we would rapidly get use...

Re: Lock up on loading

OK, I did some basic clean up on the laptop, and the browser, and things are running a little better.

If it hangs again... it hasn't for a few days now, then I would like to resurrect this thread. Otherwise... Thanks.

Re: Lock up on loading

Pure version 75 seconds load IF it doesn't lock at the 40%

Re: Lock up on loading

Sorry forgot to answer... laptop is permanently on the power cord.

What is the difference between the steam version, and the "direct from you" version? Since they are both on the same laptop, they seem to be accessing the same files, is there a way to seperate them completely?

Re: Lock up on loading

Tried this... On the Steam version it felt as if the general loading took longer but it is hard to be sure without timing it, and it varies every time.

Lock up on loading

Was having slow loading issues with the Steam version, so I loaded a new version direct from you. With the Steam version there was a pause loading at 40%. This could last from 20- 40 seconds. Sometimes pressing ESC seemed to help. With the direct version it pauses at 30% and then locks up at 40%. It...

Re: Friday Facts #234 - Office pictures

I actually greatly enjoyed this Friday Facts! Always nice to see some "behind the scenes" pictures of the office and the team. :D Hopefully the new larger office works out well. I look forward to seeing it! It's great the PvP event was mentioned here. I think there is a lot of potential for Factori...

Re: Friday Facts #234 - Office pictures

Landmines are not OP in themselves.... the issue was that they were sprinkled like confetti throughout an enemy base. The most OP item was the PDL of Anti. These personal lasers were faster and more powerful that static lasers... illogical.

It should be at 39% as that is the point at which the loding always pauses... or hangs.

Re: Friday Facts #226 - New mod portal & other news

Shame... but understandable... but when will we get the 0.16.17 WITH filter splitters......PLEASE!
