Notch Mentioned Factorio on Twitter

Notch (Minecraft creator) just mentioned Factorio on Twitter about a half hour ago. Get ready for Factorio to skyrocket.

Notch via Twitter:
"Factorio.com! I'm trying not to play it, but @JahKob is playing it right next to me. So tempted."

Re: Factorio crashes upon installing updates

This crash happens with every single version I have ever used since auto-updating was put into place. Well, not sure if I started playing before or after that but every time I have updated when prompted this occurs. I've made no changes to the code at all. This happens both with the zipped and insta...

Factorio crashes upon installing updates

I think I've reported this issue in the past somewhere, although I cannot find that post so I'm making a new one since the issue is still present. After installing an update Factorio will crash and Windows displays the following message: Factorio.exe has stopped working A problem caused the program ...

Re: Question about steam energy production

Personally I'm going for rows of 1 pump, 14 boilers and 9 steam engines. Everything is running at100% efficiency. How can you have 1 pump servicing 9 engines? Doesn't the lower water level decrease the maximum output? I have 1 pump servicing 6 engines and the water level is down to 9.5/10, and thus...

Re: Too jerky biters?

That has certainly happened to me as well, but I much prefer rather than have a huge chunk of my base wiped out and having to rebuild that. Recently, there was a part of my wall that was unguarded and biters got in... if they had attacked what was closest after getting inside my base would have been...

This is the reason why I started making an endgame based mod :)

End game objective?

Once everything is researched, what's the end game like? I'm rapidly approaching having all the research completed and am curious what is after that? Is it just improving the factory? The whole point of mining all the ore is for the research itself so unsure what is left after that point. Or is it t...

Re: Version 0.7.3

Its really not a big deal as once I click to close the program Factorio just relaunches as I would expect. But something seems to be amiss because of that error in the first place.

Any tips for offense?

Having a hard time going on the offense. And with 0.7.3 giving radars a purpose, I discovered that my base is completely surrounded. In the past I've always just carried a bunch of walls, laser turrets, and power lines with me inching very slowly toward the enemy until I was able to take them out. P...

Re: Version 0.7.3

Awesome! By the way, every time I do an update the game crashes and Windows 8 throws up a dialog stating its searching for a resolution. Once I click to close the program the game launches right back without an issue. I assume this is not desired behavior.

Re: [MOD 0.6.x] Solar Expansion v0.3.1 (Realism Update)

I haven't touched this mod for months and have been doing other things, so I have no idea what would need to be done in order to make this 0.7.x compatible. And I am unsure if I will continue its development unless there is enough interest expressed.

Official IRC?

How is there not an official IRC for Factorio? Cookie Clicker has one! It would be quite awesome if the devs set up an official IRC channel, given available time as I am sure they are quite busy. I apologize if this was brought up before. I believe I found a post about it but it didn't catch much at...

GUI Overlap

The info boxes on the right stretch so far down that I cannot see all of the content because of the tool/weapon/armor bar. This might be in part due to medium-sized resolution (1366 x 768), however it is widely used and especially on laptops. Moving the tool/weapon/armor bar to the bottom left might...

Re: [MOD 0.6.x] Solar Expansion v0.3.1 (Realism Update)

That's awesome! I feel bad because I stopped playing the game and haven't updated the mod in quite some time. I just started playing 0.7 today... awesome stuff. Feel free to add this into the game... I'd much rather it be core content than a mod.

Re: [MOD 0.6.x] Solar Expansion v0.3.1 (Realism Update)

Have people actually been liking this mod? And I certainly don't mind it if someone made any changes to it at all. That's the great thing about open-source and community-driven projects.

Re: Almost June & 0.5.0

Where was the push? All I said was that I'm excited for 0.5.0 and it was last slated for sometime in June. I've noticed you're quite harsh with a lot of your posts, at least in my direction. First it was a negative critique on my FIRST mod and now blatant misreading of this post. Tone it down a bit.
