Re: How do I make a blueprint?

Thank you. It looks like Alt-B works, but the "New blueprint" button isn't available until I've researched some technology.

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

I have a suggestion which I haven't seen mentioned here yet: Why don't you come up with an explanation for how the beacon actually works, then build its design around that? If the beacon works by constantly analyzing the manufacturing process, eking out productivity gains through opportunistic adjus...

Re: [MOD 0.17] Industrial Revolution

How does the clockwork punkbot work? I put a bronze roboport equipment in my heavy armor and I built a clockwork punkbot, but I can't figure out how to make the robot do anything. I've used blueprints to mark items for construction and I've used the deconstruction planner to mark items for removal, ...

Is there a mod to prevent inserters from chasing items?

In the Friday Facts #309 , one of the controversial opinions presented was that "Inserters should not chase items". I am interested in trying the game with no-chase behavior; I think it would be fun to explore the implications. Is it possible for a mod to suppress (or to simulate the suppression of)...

Licensing for Multiplayer - Clarification Questions

I want to play a game with my three nieces and nephew. They don't have Factorio licenses. To get them licenses, I must create four new accounts and buy Factorio under each account, right? If instead I buy four new copies under my account, that would be a mistake, because even though I might technica...

Re: I've never played multiplayer. I have some basic questions...

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will definitely check out the evolution mods and the Todo List Mod. I'm getting an idea of how this will play out: I can confidently predict that my nephew will just want to drive around and shoot bugs, so I'll put him in charge of defense. One of my nieces is an el...

I've never played multiplayer. I have some basic questions...

My family gets together many times each year, and I'm always looking for fun new things we can do as a group. I got the idea that we could play Factorio together in multiplayer mode. However, I have never played multiplayer mode, so I need to do some research first. (Please forgive me if these are d...

Re: What is a chargeback fee?

slipperycheeze, I appreciate your effort to clarify the system, but I think you've focused on the chargeback, while my ignorance was mostly about the chargeback fee. To paraphrase my understanding: The chargeback makes whole all the agents in the payment chain. Wube does not lose money on the charge...

Re: What is a chargeback fee?

Thank you for the reply, but it is still not clear who is paying a fee to whom. Are you saying that when a payment for Factorio is found to be fraudulent, the Factorio team must pay a fee to its own bank?

What is a chargeback fee?

The latest Friday Facts mentions "chargeback" and "chargeback fee". What are those? More specifically, who pays a fee to whom? I couldn't figure it out from the context, and I'm not familiar with the industry.

Do inserters extend/retract unnecessarily?

I'm trying to get precise behavior out of some inserters, but my timing is off by a little bit, and I'm trying to figure out why. I think I know the answer, but I want to check with the experts here to see if I am correct. My theory: When an inserter is idle, it extends/retracts its arm to a neutral...

Re: Looking for content adding mods without tiers grind

On the other hand, the Angel's mods replace iron and copper ores with several bogus fantasy ores, and that's a turn off for me, so on balance I'd say I give no recommendation for those Angel's mods. AFAIK, you can also play Angel's mods without Bob's Metals, Chemicals and Intermediates - this will ...

Re: Looking for content adding mods without tiers grind

wvlad,

Thank you for the suggestions. In particular, I like the sound of Robot Army and Recursive Blueprints. I'll try them when I can.

I've been exploring Logistic Carts today. I like it so far.

Re: Looking for content adding mods without tiers grind

wvlad, I have the same question. Would you mind sharing your notes about which mods, in your opinion, add interesting new stuff and new mechanics? I played through an earlier version of the game with Logistic Train Network and Bob's Adjustable Inserters. Ostensibly, those mods just make it easier to...
