Re: Respect Windows Storage Paths

As for why: I don't consider it worth breaking every single piece of documentation, every single persons remembered location, every single script, and possibly more for what is an extreme edge case issue. The *massive* majority of players do not care or even know where Factorio stores save files/co...

Re: Respect Windows Storage Paths

Neither %appdata% nor %localappdata% are backed up by default by most backup utilities. Honestly, they shouldn't be. Because there's nothing that should be stored in those folders that the loss of should be any huge deal. Because the only thing that is supposed to be stored in those folders is repl...

Re: Respect Windows Storage Paths

Please also count me in among the people who want it moved to what has been known as the generic saved directory for most games, not the Appdata Roaming folder. Please.

Add 1 qty of item in logistics request menu when shift or control is pressed.

TL;DR Add 1 qty of item in logistics request menu when shift or control is pressed. What ? / Why ? I like adding items in stacks but sometimes I also only want to request only 1 unit. I know about the option of having it set to default as 1 qty, but I really prefer the stack as default. So an alter...

Upgrade Planner "Book"

I like the new upgrade planner that's part of the game now. But when I used a mod before there was a drop-down list where I could save different sets of "upgrade plans", but I like the new in-game way where the upgrade isn't instant but is instead performed by bots. I was wondering if there's any pl...

Crippling low FPS when mobs attack

I'm wondering if anyone knows what I need to disable in the mod settings. I basically have these mods installed that affect enemies: - Bobs/Angels - Rampant - Natural Evolution Enemies I'm still in early game pre 4th tier science (after military science). Every time I get a wave of mobs attacking my...

Re: Was 0.17.7 biters nerfed already?

2. Would Rampant may have made the biters easier? 3. Because I play with Rampant ON prior to 0.17, does it mean I'm just more acclimated to the harder difficulty that people are complaining about? I only played with Rampant in 0.16 a couple games. Only thing i noticed then was that they act badly w...

Was 0.17.7 biters nerfed already?

So I held off on playing 0.17.0 for a week, now it's 0.17.7. And on the release of 0.17 I've been reading some people complain about the biter difficulty so I was expecting it to be very hard. I was expecting to lose on my first try. But you know, that's what I wanted, I wanted a challenge. So I kep...

Re: Mod that scales biter hardness in perpetuity?

If you play rampant you'll need 2 rows of sniper turrets (no spacing). Even then, expanding with rampant on is pretty challenging. Love the challenge tho. Love the frustration it generates lol.

Re: Mod that scales biter hardness in perpetuity?

What did you set the enemy max level to for Rampant enemies? Currently the level 10 biters have roughly ~30000 HP. Don't remember exactly, I think I just left it on default. But IIRC all I had to do was build 2 rows of turrets and never had problems with biters after that. But I tell you, playing b...

Re: Friday Facts #284 - 0.17 experimental

I love the new difficulty changes. Please keep it. I agree about your point that the game should be pulling the player in all directions to prioritize. It's a great balancing act "challenge". Love it! Best devs I've ever known. Good luck Factorio Devs, hope you guys at least sleep this week haha.

Re: Not pleased with 17.1 so far...

I must say I absolutely love that they buffed the biters. Now you don't need mods to experience some form of challenge from them, as they were just cannon fodder for artifact collection in 0.15, then became pointless in 0.16. Adding just one or two biter mods is now enough to challenge the more exp...

I don't think thats what the campaign should be about.
I think what you mean is that the tutorial mode should be easier. Not sure what you mean by "campaign".
