Re: ""Factorio 2""

The obvious next level for Factorio would be a 3D jump. Oh good lord. If anything, they should go reverse. Fewer graphics / animations. Exactly what about factorio and its game play makes you think people care about graphics over mechanics? 3D isn't about graphics, it *is* about mechanics! Z-levels...

Rich text: remove "entity" in hints and tips

Re: Combinator Logic Rework

I think this suggestion reflects the fact, that the current combinator system is Turing-complete, but the overview it gives is more than the usual chaos. I can easily set up combinators, and wire them so, that i can come back the next day and need to figure out half an hour what it does. Having blu...

Re: Make chain signals the norm, and rail signals for experts

Over long distances, this would crush throughput, because a train could "reserve" a junction five minutes away from itself, meaning another train which could make a trip through the junction 30 might have to sit at a station for ages while that one completed its trip. Try setting up a syst...

Re: Combinator Logic Rework

"Too easy" is a moveable feast though isn't it? Why is *the particular level of difficulty* we have now the best way? Clearly you can do an awful lot of things with the existing system. There are a lot of things that are prohibitively expensive in terms of time and combinator space. There ...

Some more ideas, trying to think through how to do real world examples of what's currently possible and what might be additionally possible.

Combinator Logic Rework

TL;DR Enable multiple combinator steps to take place in a single unit, for ease of programming/readability/portability/space-saving.

Re: Combinator scalability and maintainability

An idea I had which would work to achieve this would be to let combinators have more than one operation. I had suggested a box layout similar to visual scripting languages before, but factorio already has a suitable kind of layout in the Rail Stop. Below is a diagram of how it might look. Untitled D...

""Factorio 2""

Now that Factorio has hit the 1.0 stage, what are things that you might want to see either in a "Factorio 2" new game or a new direction from the dev team? The obvious next level for Factorio would be a 3D jump. But rather than the "Satisfactory" full 3D direction, I would like t...

Re: Multiple Conditions + If \ Else function+ for Logic Networks

The "high level" request here isn't just if/else statements, but multiple blocks within one combinator.

From what I can tell, there's no intention for the devs to adjust combinator logic in this way, but I could be proved wrong.

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

I figured that would be the case, just throwing out some ideas in case any of them landed.

I still reckon a beefier substation would fit better than an alien spike?
