Re: Version 1.1.92

Since I have played Industrial Revolution, I treated its sub-mod Deadlock's Research Notifications as a must-have :

So I am glad that its functionality has been integrated in the base game ! :D

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

Are we going to see an engine update that handles greater than 60hz refresh rate? I don't get why some people feel the need for a > 60 Hz refresh rate in a game like this? You gain nothing from it. For factorio alone, no. But if they happen to have one for other reasons, it's obviously also getting...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

Unless this is superior to Krastorio 2 and its associated mod packs, for me - and my current mod setup - its a step backwards. The space age content might be superior but at first glance, (4 planets) its less content than what Krastorio 2 mod pack offers (infinite planets) [...] I haven't played Kr...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

Not enough to be crippling, but enough to make defence a continuing challenge even with it. Then when you get missile ...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

I'm wondering something about optimisation. Factorio as a game is incredibly well made from an optimisation standppoint, and in previous blog posts, the difficulties about implementing multi-threading were discussed. The game already makes use of a remarkable amount of multi-threading, but there ar...

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

Space Age has a lot of different challenges but they never get too extreme and the usage of combinators is quite lightweight IMO the game doesn't really encourage players enough to use combinators, so I'd actually prefer at least one recipe per planet that needs combinators for efficient automation...

Re: Mods shouldn't disable Steam achievements

Factorio has in-game achievement tracking completely independent of what's in Steam, and it is not disabled by mods. If we're going to take the stance that achievements are altogether worthless or even intentionally addiction-inducing the question of whether to disable Steam tracking for mods is ir...
