Re: Assign build orders to multiply selected Assembly Machines/Chemical Plants/Etc

Are you aware you can use shift + left click and shift + right click to copy settings from entity to entity? (works on just about any entity, includes circuit & logistic settings)
Or do you mean something in addition to this?

Re: Storms, haze and Visible Pollution

Visible pollution is a good idea. Perhaps a black grime that gets on the machines/floor or a haze in the air (not enough to make it hard to see though). The black grime would only appear if it's very polluted. It really gives a sense of having a factory, and perhaps gives the player a reason to clea...

Re: Modules for Radars

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but still: A lot of players, myself included, wish that radars, like many other elements of the game, could be improved somehow in the later game. Module slots inside radars would do the trick. Speed modules would make it faster, efficiency modules would make it c...

Re: Friday Facts #269 - Roadmap update & Transport belt perspective

I love the belts so much!
Don't try to go too fast when developing the game. After all, you can't rush perfection.
But please don't forget the Spidertron! I've wanted to have one ever since I saw it in the FFF #120.

Re: The Problem With Pickaxes - Digging Out Factorio's Core

One might think this the greatest betrayal of all. Where once your factory served you, now you served your factory for an ever more elusive promise of ever greater power. It is no longer an extension of you, but you an extension of it. And now, that simple iron pickaxe that formed the basis of your...

Re: The Problem With Pickaxes - Digging Out Factorio's Core

Keep the pickaxe, remove the tedium from it. I agree: The pickaxe should be kept but the durability mechanic should be removed. After all, guns are also tools and yet they don't have any durability. Sure, it can be argued that ammo is essentially durability but it's not; it's ammo. I agree on both ...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

I've been thinking about the damage type streamlining and I have some thoughts to share: Kovarex suggested 4 damage types: generic, impact, heat, and acid. One think I like about this is that "fire" is changed to "heat" --when you think about it, there are some non-flammable substances that still do...

TL;DR: The assembling machine ingredient limits are good because they help give a sense of game progression. Now that I think about it, the assembling machine ingredient limits are very useful for game progression. Please don't remove them. (In this argument I will abbreviate "assembling machine" w...

Re: Friday Facts #266 - Cleanup of mechanics

About the resistances: can there be an option to show ALL resistances, even for non-fight related entities? And can all fight-related entities show resistances by default? (walls/gates, turrets, tanks, maybe cars) If new players don't see resistance values they may think that said entity has no resi...

Re: Friday Facts #265 - Nomenclature & Steam networking

What I was trying to say is that "Ghost entities" aren't "real." They don't exist in any physical sense. You can't do anything with them. They only represent a place where you will eventually place a real entity. Ghost entities are also formed when any entity is destroyed and you have construction ...

Re: New Achievement Ideas

There should be variants of many achievements that require either marathon mode or harder enemies. This gives the player an incentive to try each game mode.

Re: Scrollable console history

Can't you use the up and down keys to go through the console history? Or was that not what you were referring to?
Also, if you can find player-data.json you can read your complete console history.

Belt Immunity
Does that "stabilizer" only apply when standing or do we also loose the "running on belt" speed bonus?

With belt immunity equipment, you will also lose the belt highway speed bonus.
