Re: Friday Facts #250 - Dead end conclusion

I am sure you all have seen this reddit thread, but I think this is exactly how they should act. I think that blueprints being items is unessisary, and only adds more complication and confusion then keeping them as items for "consistency". There is very little about blueprints that say items, so why...

Re: Friday Facts #237 - Rich & interactive text

I love the idea of using rich text to create clickable links and "hover-able" tooltips not only in chat, but in the map and anywhere else there is text. I could really see this becoming useful in multiplayer; Instead of saying "we should research that electric smelting one next; the 4th one on the s...

A way to see what is currently being delivered to you

Pretty much the title. With requester chests, you can look at them and on the pane on the right it will show you what is being requested and currently delivered. There is no equivalent for the player's character. This feature would allow an easy way to see if you are out of something in the factory(...

Robots should be able to place modules in machines using shortcut

As it is now, you cannot tell your robots to place moduals in machines for you, unless you have a blueprint with moduals in it. Short and simple suggestions: Ctrl+Shift+LMB on a machine with a modual in your hand should tell your robots to fill them up. This would make it really easy to put moduals ...

Re: Friday Facts #141 - Mod Portal

Love the train graphics!
I have one thing to say though- is blood red really a nessisary? Sure, many people and biters will let killed with them, but not a color like brown, grey, tan, etc?

Re: Friday Facts #132 - Side Project

OH no. No. The horrors! NO! *Flashback 30 seconds* I read the sentence that a mobile version is coming out, then get shouted at by my boss for being too loud. :) Then I started to read what the gameplay would be like: Shake to mine? Really? It should be just a tap and hold interface to mine and dest...

Re: [MOD 0.10.2] Resource Spawner Overhaul - v1.0.2

From my experience with Factorio generation, you probably have your "terrain segmentation" on low or very low; try raising it up higher. Or if you have it up high, lower it.

Re: Bug reports

As A Factorio veteran, I know the advantages of re-generating maps in the map editor until I get a good one that fits what I want to do with the world, or placing some starting resources if they are lacking (eg. There is iorn and coal, but no copper in the starting area). So when I created a new map...

[0.12.29] [pending] Start Screen Crash

I am happy to report that this is my second ever Factorio crash.
I was on the the title screen and it crashed after I was messing around with the logmein tunneling engine in the windows services window. Logs are attached.

[0.12.27] Factorio Crashes Repeatively Without Consistancy

I could write a whole lot about my issue, but I am going to keep it simple, in the nice bulleted form: The game crashes after playing for an average of 15-20 minutes. (Multiplayer, connecting with a dedicated server) The game crashes with an error saying "look at the log file! it is located here!: [...

Re: Remember position of inventory menu

After playing more, It would be really nice with setting filters in trains, especially if the window stayed in the same position realitive to the cursor.

Re: Rocket Research needs to be split up.

I was not looking at it that way(to add more features centered around the rocket building parts)- but you said it well. I am not concerned about speed when researching Rocket Silo- it is more along the lines that everything is grouped together into one research, when, IMO, it should be split up int...

Re: Friday Facts #128 - Back down to earth

I vote no on the loader- as someone mentioned above me, it replaced the need for (some) complex setups and it can take away part of the gameplay.

You guys are having a base price of $20?? :o Thats it? This is the quality of a $30 game, AT LEAST. You should look into the price a bit more- any game that you can put 500+ hrs into and not get board should not be priced at $20. No matter what the game is. Not everyone will put 500 hours into this...
