Re: Friday Facts #400 - Chart search and Pins

I love it, that's just so great! All of it, every part. Thank you guys, that was a cherry missing on top the user-configurable alerts all the time.

somehow.
You know such a thing COULD be solved by just putting Turrets at the Hole, right?
:D It's not the sinister random danger then, rather another game sin, where you can not entirely purge an enemy.
I enjoy the charme of being able to forcefully remove the biters too much

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

I feel like Factorio was always missing "internal conflict" in the sense of having something specific to protect against that usually is located INSIDE the Base, like a Hole in the ground that mobile Worms come out of every now and then, which you cant just plug to close it, or if you plu...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

Man, you are the 5th poster which lacks reading comprehension or is just baiting, I don't know. And I even reply each time - cliffs are fun, trees are fun, being limited in a game is obviously fun, otherwise there is no progression. What is not fun, is that the cliffs-lavapit-oilpit are the same li...

Re: Remove conveniences in favour of circuit networks

To be honest, regarding the complexity of the circuits, when it comes to basic stuff like rs-latches, "disable when more than" etc, I must say factorio easily is the most user-friendly system. I recently played minecraft again, and automated some steam turbines, man, it was hell, especiall...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

To shipping in water for oil cracking - yeah, I was totally wrong, and got quickly corrected. I just thought that editing a post will be unfair to previous replies, and decided to leave it be as it is. Solid fuel is certainly more than enough to run trains, especially seeing how abundant it is comi...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

I politely disagree that you wait in factorio. I think that you have something to do all the time, even at megabase scale, but that is of course my personal opinion. While I do not have any reservation regarding the planets, there have been cases where different locations on a basebuilder proved les...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

No "landfill" - you now HAVE to build spaghetti for the third time now, because that's obviously such a fun mechanic somehow, being cramped. First the cliffs, then the lava fields, now the oil fields. I don't know, maybe it's me, but the novelty of cliffs wears off 30 minutes after starti...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

I absolutely agree with everything that you say. The problem is, that "my spagetti is this way" vs "my spagetti is that way" is not real variation. What this causes, as you say, that this is a playstyle thing, which simply makes one playstyle significantly worse than another one...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

Thank you for your condescending reply, I could not have decided myself to buy or not to buy the expansion. I would have bought the expansion even if I did not like anything in it, simply to support the devs, since I have been getting pretty solid content all those years. Funny how you also do not u...

Re: Friday Facts #399 - Trash to Treasure

For those wondering how to eliminate excess ressources, just use a non-quality recycler loop, because without quality modules, recyclers give only 25% of the ressource back. Craft it, recycle again, and you only have 6.25% left. Even better, we can introduce as another "fun" and "eng...

Re: Factorio price in Poland

Help develop the game, not the generic bloatware with features which you'll never use. So you have to jump through 20 hoops to get the same functionality you get through steam, are storage-limited at that, need a microsoft account, need a specific external software running for the sync, but that is...

Re: Factorio price in Poland

To install Factorio on Steam, you need to install Steam first, for starts. For pure stand-alone Factorio it's just "unzip and go". If your preferred way of using software is "unzip and go", you have very special interpretation of convenience :D Also, onedrive offers only 5 gigs ...

Have you heard of Dwarf Fortress, my friend ? I have, but I am always somewhat reluctant to try it, seems like a very steep learning curve, especially considering the ascii graphics. I have played the offspring, rimworld though, was also good fun. One day I will muster up the strength to play dwarf...
