Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

Factorio supports multiple surfaces. And you can portal the player and vehicles between surfaces with LUA. What's missing is support for rails to connect to another surface. It's one of my open suggestions. Imagine you could build a tunnel into a cliff to get underground and come back out on the ot...

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

Factorio needs a good campaign, with a proper story. I agree. What's fun about, e.g., starcraft is the story and the gradually increasing difficulty as you work through it. Freestyle is fun too of course, but some solid campaigns would be worth add-on money too. And adding multiple enemy types (whi...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

So quick response to a few of these ideas: Pipes should work like electricity IMO, I'd rather see electricity work more like pipes - there's a current and amperage, and you have to match things up. Regular power poles can't carry infinite amps, and you can have plenty of power available, but run int...

Re: Version 0.17.25

If it's dev-team only, it's alpha. The minute someone NOT on the dev team has a copy, it's beta. Technically, this is incorrect. A software can be considered alpha as long as it's not feature complete - which is the case for Factorio. I know Wikipedia is not the pinnacle of the universal knowledge,...

looks like trees still contribute to positive pollution (at least in pollution stats screen)

Re: Version 0.17.25

"we are more in beta territory by now even if they still call it alpha"

This always bothered me. If it's dev-team only, it's alpha. The minute someone NOT on the dev team has a copy, it's beta.

These are all (paid) betas.

Bots vs Belts - a simple solution

Humbly suggest you are focused on the wrong issue. Look at actual factories: the belt is not only a means of transport, it is also a queue or inventory. Bots are a transport and not an inventory (well not much of one without a very large number of bots). With bots you can't really control the number...
