Re: Factorio is... Too cheap?!!!

I understand your objections. But there are other ways to look at it. When I browse games on steam, I don't usually take games that are very cheap seriously, I prefer to pay 20Euro for great game, than to waste time on bad game for 10Euro, and I believe lot of other people think this way. I have ve...

Re: Factorio Facts #31

Actually what you write is IMHO even more of an argument to keep the moddability as large as possible. It is like in Kerbal Space Program ... the game itself already is great ... but the fact that you have a large variety of Mods (that are easily installable and also can be searched/accessed from a ...

Re: Factorio Facts #31

Just to be sure - this also means Greenlight campaign starting May 1st, right? About that ... we decided to give it some more time :) Should probably see about multiplayer before committing to Greenlight. Factorio works very well as single player ... don´t think that Multiplayer for a game like Fac...

Re: Factorio Facts #31

This is great news indeed! This is exactly what we were trying to achieve all the time. To make it interesting and complex enough to hook people, but not complicated too much so new players will not be discouraged. You did quite a good job at the balance, I think. I'm one of those dwarf fortress, e...

Re: What happens if you drink a science pack?

I would prefer to drink the green potions.
They include inserters, hopefully resulting in me gaining new appoendages in addition to my arms/hands,
allowing me to carry more stuff and doing more things at the same time :mrgreen:

Build a radar to uncover chunks in a large area over time. As soon as the pollution reaches them, they get angry.
So the radar finally has a functionality even in Freeplay?

Re: Wiki: Current prios

Maybe it would be a good idea to check the existing recipe entries. I just discovered that the recipe for Science 2 has changed (needing an Inserter instead of "just" an electronic circuit). (dunno when it has changed, since I didn´t play Factorio for quite a while ... but perhaps it isn´t...

Re: [MOD 0.4.x] Factorio Clock

Now, with minutes (as zlosynus wanted) and using the format that kovario suggested (with ontick-specific event requery). I dropped...

GUI-Element Font-Properties in 0.5.2

Seems like I have a problem to set the font of my GUI-Label in the new version. I use basically: game.player.gui.left.add{type="label", name="myLabelName"} game.player.gui.left.myLabelName.font={[my Font Defines i.e. color, bold]} And the system seems to have problem find the .fo...

Re: Item Recycling/Recycler/Scrap Yard (merged topics)

To reflect the different ways of construction the item could just have different recipes for this item in ...

Re: Scrap Yard

IMHO a good idea ... but it should work with slight losses (after all, that´s what you normally have in recycling as well) Maybe it could work like some kind of reverse factory ... you enter which recipe your scrapyard factory should produce and you enter the products and afterwards get the raw mate...

Re: A "portal" chest

I agree with the 2 posters above me.

Transporter chests would definitely make our lives too easy/deviate too much from the challenge of having to design conveyor belt line/railtracks in order to transport stuff

IDs for Smart Chests/Inserters + Network Status + Warnings

As the title says ... it would be extremly useful to have (at least) all smart inserters and smart chests identified with an ID (together with some kind of search function that lets you focus on the looked for smart chest/inserter ID). Also it would be useful to have a list of all red/green networks...

Re: Some ideas for more usefull trains.

At least in concept something similar exists for Steam locomotives. So called Fireless locomotives . They wouldn´t produce the steam (to power them) themselves, but instead would carry some kind of "Steam Accumulator" with them, that stored Steam. Every now and then they would have to driv...

Re: About the war / objectives

Re: Technology Tree

Civ (and I think a few other 4X games employing tech trees as well) had it implemented (at least in later versions),
that you could just click on a technology (even if the prerequisites weren´t met) and the game would automatically select all prerequisites for research
