Re: Can there ever be a full 3D rendered Factorio?

I have played both Factorio and Satisfactory a lot (Factorio around 5000 hours), and if you look at the differences, you also see pretty well what the problems are in a 3D world. Satisfactory is managing to reproduce far more factories and belts in a 3D world then I thought would possible, but at th...

Re: Visualize negated filter inserters

Absolutely amazing idea! The other day, I was looking for the error in a huge multiplayer factory, and only after starting to click through a good 100 inserters manually, I found that one that, for whatever reason, had whitelist instead of blacklist enabled.

Re: Anyone standardizing on very long trains?

For me it makes a huge difference what exactly you are transporting. For ore to smelter trains, 4-16 or whatever can work well, especially if you design your delivery trains in a waythat they don‘t touch „the inner network“. Personally, I usually stick to 2-8 or 2-8-2 designs in this area, simply du...

Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

What an amazing journey it has been so far - I randomly found this game many years ago, watching livestreams while being in hospital. The first thought Ihad when leaving hospital was „I need to get this thing!“ Since then, I have spent around 5000 hours in it, usually playing it as cooperative multi...

Re: Thinking of getting the game if there is ever some type of steam sale for the game.

Factorio is a game, that seems to be just one of those thousands of retro-look games in steem, and for that quite expensive ... ... but once you get into it, you start to recognise how different it is from most games you have ever played. I‘d mention its name along the other groundbraking games of a...

Re: Landfill needs a change. 20 Stone for 1 tile? Ridiculous!

What about alternative recipes that allow you to use:
- 10 stone + 10 coal
- 10 stone + 10 iron ore
- 10 stone + 10 copper ore

still realistic, and a good sink for temporary ressource unbalance (too little stone and too much copper?)

Re: How to load 4 blue belts per wagon?

From my experience, having 2 belt per wagon and a buffer chest ist perfectly fine, but for important stations, I use a different setup meanwhile: - all bufferchests for a single wagon are combined with a decider circuit that asks, if there is exactly enough of the item to fill a complete wagon. If s...

Re: Friday Facts #277 - GUI progress update

Getting 4K screens is affordable indeed. Getting a good 4k screen is terribly expensive. By good, I mean with relatively accurate colors, high contrast, homogenous brightness, no clouding, good viewing angles, ... The sub 4K market still has a good future awaiting it. I think it would be a bad move...

Re: All turrets should require circuits

As the gun turret is your very first base defence, even before you have built electric power, its a balancing thing that they only require the most basic materials for construction. If you add more complex materials, especially starter players might quickly become overwhelmed by the biters. For late...

With this picture, the game should be sold in a box! And yes, concerning the picture I was thinking in the box of a physical copy of the game.

Re: [0.16.51] Factorio Ultrawide Monitor support?

I‘m actually using a 2 x 4k monitor setup, and using a single of the screens, everything works like a charm (gfx 980 + i7-7700k) on our multiplayer map (40000 rockets launched, 600 trains moving).

So now that there is a space above the armor slot, where the pickax used to be, will the battery charge display be moved there?
Or even better, both shield and battery could be displayed there as little gauges
