Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

On some of the stuff brought up in the WoW section, I think that it is important to understand WHY they added the tools they did. If for example, you were the only person in your group of friends who plays, or if you aren't very good in chatting, being able to find a group to play this content migh...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

I agree they've certainly read the heavy oil suggestion and seemingly disagree with it through silence, but given how nice an idea it seems, people wonder what their thoughts on it are. Though we could have also simply missed their thoughts on it (pls link). [...] Adding cracking with basic oil pro...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

You are saying exactly what I'm thinking. And the devs have decided to ignore us on this. They've also made AOP even more of a mandatory rush, when they claim to want to make it less important to rush it. Yes, Construction bots (ie: Heavy Oil) are that important. When you grok them it's one of the ...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

The Oil Changes: Too bad you seem locked in to this. Pushing back construction bots is not a "fun" change. The suggestion made by the user last week, to have Basic Oil Tech produce Heavy Oil only which must then must be cracked down, was the most elegant solution. You learn about the different outp...

Re: Make fluid wagons lighter

To add to this after reading the friday facts, fluid wagons do carry too much for mixed loads. 75k crude would have to be paired with ~30 cargo wagons full of iron and copper in order to be turned into most anything. Because I really don't want to be incentivised to deal with barrels and trains, may...

Make fluid wagons lighter

With the recent change making fluid wagons only able to contain one liquid each, I'm having a tough time justifying their use. Using a cargo wagon and barrels gives you 33% more fluid, and using filters you can carry multiple types of fluid per cargo wagon. The big downside to cargo wagons being bar...

Re: Friday Facts #208 - Tips and tricks improvement

A small thing that makes a big difference: add a (tip number)/(total number of tips) somewhere on the tips window. I am much more likely to read tips if I have an idea of where I am in the tip list. It is really nice to have an idea of how many you've read and how many you have left when reading thr...

Re: Friday Facts #205 - Teaching the things that everybody knows

I disagree with a number of suggestions here. A solid part of the gameplay is figuring things out through experiments and experience. This isn't to say there aren't things which could use more clarity. A big one is same name train stops. Without same name train stops, trains networks are frustrating...
