Basically you are saying, "The game shouldn't be improved any further because mods exists." Which to me is just silly.
Well, have fun discussing the game with your strawman.

Re: Meaningful Content Update

This is not Starship Troopers where such creatures just evolve out of nothing. The natural evolution does only, what it needs to. It doesn't invent big bosses, it takes some millions of years for that. Last time i played vanilla, they evolved lightning fast from tiny to behemoth - when compared to ...

Re: Meaningful Content Update

I mean you are right, my opinion is based on anecdotal experiences with my small group of friends and family (about 10 or so) who all love the game, but have all grumbled about how basic and uninteresting the biters feel. The thing with Factorio is, that it actually (and despite of its surprisingly...

Re: Games Like Factorio

Heavy inspiration is heavy. I guess that's the price to pay when one creates a game so good and innovative that it gives birth to a new genre bearing the game's name. Doom-like, Diablo-like, ... Now, people create "Factorio-like" games. While some are indeed just copying mechanics and designs, it i...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

That is the only feature that needs to get implemented to fix the usability issues for all color-blind and contrast/brightness sensitive/requiring players instead of fixing the problem for the most mainstream or loudest minorities only. To be fair, 5% of humans have some colorblindness, 8% of men -...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

EDIT: Also, if we want to go for like separate colorblind modes that's supposed to be somehow suitable only for a certain type of person, ironically that's more work than to just make the game accessible for everyone from the get-go. It may also actually lead to crappy compromises, like just changi...

Re: Friday Facts #351 - Beacon re-redesign & Simplified fluid mixing

I love the new lightning rod design and would like having module slots in other turrets too. But that can wait or even axed in favor of other nice-to-haves. But there can be only one 1.0.0 and its release will render all names immortal till the end of time. So if you aren't happy with any name of an...

Re: Friday Facts #348 - The final GUI update

New chest limit color is veeery unpleasant. That looks like the first fallout from trying to make the game more accessible to colorblind players. How does more saturation help colorblind people? But more importantly, colorblind-friendly colors should just be an option in the settings. Trying to fin...

Re: Version 0.18.31

I mentioned clientside-only theming as solution. That would allow for a high-contrast black-and-white them...

Re: Brute Force Login

If an account is seeing x IPs that are not trusted/known IPs attempting to make access to the account then yes it will lock them out. But if you come along to login as the actual user from a normal IP address usually yes it will log you in. Most Internet users worldwide don't have a fixed IP. So a ...

Re: Brute Force Login

Usually if there is a successful login from a known IP it bypasses the account lockout. If you can try to login while you (not the account, but your IP) is on lockout, there is no point in having the lockout at all. The goal is to prevent bruteforcing, not to let the attacker in and then make the u...

I would opt for three tries and then ten seconds wait time until the next try.

What I really can not wrap my mind around yet, is the resolution of the G2A issue. G2A's business model is to profit from fraud. I know that an honest trader is basically an unthinkable thing for most people. But we're not talking about honest traders. We're talking about G2A. That is, what i meant...
