Re: Friday Facts #400 - Chart search and Pins

Milestone #400 FFF and there's almost no fanfare? For shame! I am hoping that the tech tree gets an overhaul as well. Especially for big mods like seablock, it'd be nice to be able to have a list view of techs, which you can then sort, search, and group. For example, I might want to filter by all th...

Re: Friday Facts #397 - Factoriopedia

Hopefully you can give the tech tree a proper overhaul too, searchable, sortable by name/cost etc, maybe the user ability to pin or group a few techs (useful with mods since there are a few key techs I want work toward, but dont want to redo the queue because I forgot a sister technology etc)

Hm, for some reason I couldn't find any hits. I'll give that thread a read then

[1.1.94] Unable to handshake update server [solved?]

I am running Windows 7. Steam has decided to end support for it, and due to a recent update I am unable to launch or log into Steam (unresponsive black rectangle due to WebGL stuff). Therefore, I am playing the standalone exe of the latest version of Factorio (v1.1.94) It asks me to log in, and I do...

Re: Friday Facts #386 - Vulcanus

Very cool. I suppose we'll probably get a water or ice planet, and one that is dark (far away and poor light / no solars)

Very interested in seeing the terrain generation process as well as how the color grading got done

Re: Friday Facts #385 - Asteroid Collector

Tentacles will always be hentai, sorry. The space platform looks like a menace to anime girls, not asteroids. Can't take it seriously. "Mining lasers" are a video game contrivance that has been used for decades, everyone is used to it, it's fine. this is such a you problem. If you don't s...

Re: Friday Facts #385 - Asteroid Collector

My first thought is how the collectors can be used in mods. For example, is it restricted only to space platforms? Being able to slap it onto a spidertron as a module so you can walk past trees and automatically harvest them, etc. (Which would also bring me to the thought of being able to regenerate...

Re: Include the "Even Distribution" mod in the base game

Why not throw auto-fill turrets in as well if you're going to do that? Manual distribution only matters for the first 20 mins or so, after that you're running on belts and inserters and shouldn't be playing logi bot anymore. As I mentioned, I tend to play marathon games, often with longer science. ...

Include the "Even Distribution" mod in the base game

I consider this to be a huge QoL improvement over the base game, and since the expansion is on its way and they've put significant focus on improving the user experience, I think it would be a good fit. Currently, when you hold ctrl and drag the mouse button over a container/building, it will put ha...

Re: Friday Facts #384 - Combinators 2.0

This is nice. I understand logistics and wire networks to be extremely powerful, but I always found it too cumbersome to bother with, which led me to making compact and efficient (basic) factories. Maybe I'll actually mess around with them now

Re: Friday Facts #383 - Super force building

I understand that you're only removing landfill you've placed, but if you have a solid land bridge that you can yank up on a moment's notice, it feels like Biters will need more tools (swimming, flying, better pathing) to deal with it. A landbridge with a 1 tile chokepoint is defendable with minima...

Re: Friday Facts #383 - Super force building

Maybe it was mentioned already but how will this affect Biters? Currently in Vanilla, you can build landfill on every other tile, which means if you're playing an island or water-heavy map, you can create shortcuts or un-pathable areas with this technique. I understand that you're only removing land...

Re: Add pause / unpause console command

While not as useful for a normal player (I have my pause bound to ctrl+space so I can toggle it quickly), I can see it having some use to modders: Perhaps when debugging a complicated script, you can have it fire a pause command to freeze the game state so you can inspect things just before they break

Re: Is using other people’s blueprints cheating?

I often play marathon games with Angelbob's and Factorissimo, so it can take dozens of hours before I get green science automated. Because of that, I spend a lot of time with low-end stuff that I can't use luxury things on, like long-distance tunnels or medium power poles, etc., so I have to really ...

Re: why prod modules are important

What I'd love to see is combat modules for turrets. Eg something that reduces attack speed but increases damage, or shoots faster and reduces damage, etc. It might make the game feel more like tower defence, but being able to specialize turrets a bit more is a fun idea (and I'm pretty sure some mods...

Re: Friday Facts #370 - The journey to Nintendo Switch

Update or no, I'm glad to see the game continuing to get updates years later. Factorio is probably one of the most robust and polished games I've ever played. I don't think I've ever really run into a bug unless it was mod related. Everything is open and transparent

Iron ore can't be smelted directly The early game production chain used to be: Saphirite Ore => Crushed Saphirite => Iron Ore => Iron Plates But it looks like that's been changed.

Re: Bugs & FAQ

I updated the game after not playing for about a year and now smelting seems broken? Previously, I would always get mechanical refining ASAP so I could convert iron ore to plates for efficiency, and then do the metallurgical fluids. However, FNEI reports that Iron Ore has no uses, and the only way t...

Re: Friday Facts #369 - To the moon

You joke, but ever since learning more about higher finances, I thought it would really comfy to have a mod where the goal was to generate the most profit; you'd lease or buy chunks of the map, and could only build on those chunks. Then, you'd make money either by exporting raw materials (low amount...
