Mod for increasing construction costs?

Would like to play a game where construction like assemblers, miners and refineries have greatly increased costs. Tired of science taking 99% of your resources while resource generation is laughably cheap.

Is there anything available for this?

Thanks deadlock, is there by any chance a smarter way of doing this than editing data.raw?

Re: [16]Two recipes for same item?

data.lua is empty, this could easily be the problem but from what i read its just for dependencies No, data.lua, data-updates.lua and data-final-fixes.lua are automatically run by Factorio. Anything you put in a subfolder isn't automatically run. If you have any other Lua files you want executed in...

[16]Two recipes for same item?

Trying to add a second recipe for electronic circuits that uses plastic instead of iron, but can't get it to work. I'm a modding n00b so its entirely possible i just messed up something simple, like directory structure, although the mod is available in the mod list and does not produce errors when l...

Re: Steam Keys available

+1 for Demo!

Also, does claiming your key mean steam takes a cut? I wouldn't mind the convenience of having factorio via steam since it makes it easy to keep track of on PC and laptop, but not if it means dev loses money.

[0.11.1]15 fps on large factory

I've been taking a break for a while and just got back for the new update, but my old factory is running very poorly at 14-16fps with the F5 overlay I've been out of the game for along time now, but i'm pretty sure it used to run at ~35 fps before 0.11, so maybe it's time for some optimization? Keep...

Re: Friday Facts #44 - Decision making

Sooo at what tech level can we expect to get tanks? Are we going to kite with them or can they stand up to biter waves? Are they customizable like power armor?

Re: [0.10.3] Train Pathfinding

Sorry for the late reply, i'll get on it now, just need a minute to get the trains clumped up, will edit when done

EDIT: savelink https://www.mediafire.com/?1p8n2k81ahscisi

Re: [0.10.3] Train Pathfinding

Well, that solves the why i guess :shock: Is the setup unusual? I always use this type of rail network same as TTD, i have a lot of trains running around mostly for fun, and making individual paths for everything is a chore, especially when theres a lot of overlap. If the two trains are converging o...

Re: Accumulator can't be connected to more than one grid.

reality Raggle Fraggle! Thats not a bug. Not to mention this is necessary if you want to prioritize solar over dirty power. If you intermix them your powergrid will eat solar until theres no more solar, like at night, then start using dirty power instead of the accumulator power that was charged by...

Re: Want to buy Tunnels for Trains / Railway Tunnels

True for DTTD, but for factorio with multiplayer you can drive a train by manually and then this "what if you are in a train stranded inside a tunnel?" is a serious problem. That's why I pointed so strong to it above. There are some worst cases, not all are mentioned yet in this thread. Those are g...

I've posted about this before, but this time i caught the son of a bitch in the act. :twisted: http://i60.tinypic.com/2qxxobb.jpg Here Train 2 was waiting for the track ahead to clear as train 1 approached the intersection, selecting the wrong track while both exits were blocked by train 1.

Re: [10.2] Incorrect block detection for rail signals

This isn't about how to use signals, it was easy to fix, the problem is with the way a signal on a straight rail joining a curved rail splits the block, as in this case it doesn't. The straight rail very slightly overlaps with the box of the curved rail, so the game doesn't split them properly, whic...
