Re: Tutorial Feedback: Too confusing and hard for a new player

You mean make the biter the same toughness as before? You know that I've played many many maps and I've never lost a single game. I mean if that's the kind of game you want, maybe the developers should add difficulty levels, like in Civizilation. There's the Chieftain, Warlord, Prince, Deity, etc. ...

Tutorial Feedback: Too confusing and hard for a new player

I decided to let a friend play the campaign without helping him to see his reaction (he is 23 years old and is used to more modern games) here is the result: 1) It was a disaster 2) The first part had the following issues a) Basic mechanics not explained - Friend didn’t know how to open the inventor...

Re: Escape Key functionality and "clear item from hand"

I know, but I have 350 hours of gameplay and just recently discovered that.

What about new players? how are they suposed to know?

Q makes sense only to experienced players of factorio.

Escape Key functionality and "clear item from hand"

I have a lot of frustration while trying to do some thing in factorio: 1) I have an item in my hand but I dont want to place it. - If I left click I place it - If I right click I will try to mine ore or nothing will happen - If I press escape the option menu comes up, and when returning to the game ...

[17.0.2] CRASH while draging a bp to "game blue prints" with right click (FIXED)

Re: [0.17.10] intro too hard

Seems a bit steep for what would be a brand new player. The difficulty is based on pollution, so if your factory was "big" and you did not produce many bullets (as a % of your total production), then you will fail. New players do not produce as much pollution as a vet. I will be tweaking ...

Re: [0.17.0] Campaign 1 Observations

I agree with the OP suggestions. Although I'm an experienced player, I find the tutorial confusing and hard. I also made a friend that has neved played factorio play the campaing without helping him and it was a disaster. I think there should be an even more basic tutorial prior to the first one, ex...

Re: [17.0.2] Can use commands like ctr+c but not cancel it while no unlocked

press "Q" (which doesnt make much sense). Why doesn't Q make sense? (I am asking for interesting feedback to give to campaign guys) Using Q to exit a menu or any interface makes no sense because I don't use Q for that function in any other program or game. Escape in the other hand is much...

[0.17.2] Can use commands like ctr+c but not cancel it while no unlocked

Although I have not unlocked shortcuts like ctr+c or ctr+x on the panel next to the toolbar I still can use those command with the corresponding shortcut keys. But what is most annoying is the fact that if I press for example ctr+c a cursor appears to copy a new area, but If I don't want to do it I ...

Re: Version 0.16.25

Bravo!!!!!

I think the game is complex enough (specially for new players) to be forced to do huge worarounds that revolves around glitches or bugs, or unintuitive use of other elements (like splitters) in order to compress a belt.

I think is a step in the right direction.

Re: Mega-Base from the devs

I have playerd around 280 hours of factorio and I have never used trains. All my bases have used belts or belt bus mainly, with the ocasional bot setup. I have never built a base with more than 1 rocket silo. I have had a lot of fun with the game and of course I feel that I have a lot to do with it....

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

Please do not touch bots I never use bots because I like belts. But I think bots should not be removed from the game, because some people prefer them. Instead just make belts better My suggestions for belt improvments are as follow: 1) Allow inserters to naturally compress belts 2) Allow side loadin...

Re: [16.0] Sideloading works completely different now

So I've spent the last few days working on belt based layouts. I'm not having any difficulty in getting a compressed belt with a splitter. In most cases I've been able to divert an output belt after it is about half full, tunnel under some inserters then merge it back into another output belt. I ha...

I totally agree. Having a "diverter" would be awesome. And yes, inserters should compress the belts on their own.

Re: [16.0] Sideloading works completely different now

See?

Having to put those complicated workarounds is not "skill", it's just an annoyance.

Sideloading should work automatically, and inserters should compress the belt by themselves.

Re: [16.0] Inserting on underground belt behaves different

This mechanics was never intended and it was actually kind of a bug and using it feels like a weird trick. There are other ways to get compressed belts (splitters for example) that should still work properly. I'm aware that this possibly breaks some setups relying on the functionality, but we could...

Re: [0.16.0] Sideloading works compeltely different now

I exclusively registered on the forums to report this as well. For me this change may not be game breaking but heart breaking. It completely makes the game not fun for me, which saddens me a lot. Have developers ever considered making inserters automatically compress belts? I don't see any reason fo...
