Re: blue and yellow assembler are worse than grey

One thing to call out is that more assemblers means you need more belts and more inserters. I did the math for grey and blue assemblers using 0.17 costs and if you assume an additional assembler requires 2 additional inserters and 6 additional belts then a set up with two blue assemblers costs less ...

Re: Early massive biter attack

I am not that upset about the aliens being more aggressive and having to spend more time on defenses. I just think that the game works much better if the first biter attacks are small. That way if you don't have sufficient defenses you only take a little damage rather than losing half your base. An ...

You have clearly thought a lot about how to introduce various concepts to players without overwhelming them. And you left enough space for people to b...

Re: [0.17.x] Save and Load Quickbar Layouts like blueprints

+ 1 My current goal for myself is to beat the game in under 15 hours. I would love it if I could play through the entire game once and determine the best quickbar layout for each section of the game and then use that set up in my speed run. As it is now I need to memorize the set up and reset my qui...
