make a global keybinding in GNOME to have your own F12 global shortcut that runs:

scrot -u "~/Pictures/Screenshots/scrot-$(date +%s).png"
Interesting idea, I'll try that! Thanks!

Re: [1.0] Screenshot issues in Linux GNOME

Unfortunately I'm not using Steam, I have the "direct" install of the game. I assumed that by buying it directly on the website, Wube will get more cash, while Steam is probably already profitable enough (;

Re: [1.0] Screenshot issues in Linux GNOME

Thanks for the info. It's a pity this doesn't work in GNOME properly now. While I know that there's a way to make screenshots in game with a command, this way has a pretty serious limitation - it captures what is around player, not what is on the screen. If I would like to make a screenshot of the m...

[1.0] Screenshot issues in Linux GNOME

Hi (; With stable 1.0 Factorio and GNOME 3.36 there are some very weird and annoying bugs with doing a print-screen key screenshots: 1. If you do a screenshot of the whole screen (just print-screen) then the game window is just not visible (*). You see a checkerboard instead of it (same thing as gra...

1.1 will be released as experimental release first, ...
Any idea when could we expect that? (; I'm not asking for a precise deadline, but I would rather like to know whether this new release is expected "pretty soon" (say a few weeks) or "in distant future" (e.g. no earlier than 2021).

Re: Lubricant: The only Flaw in the Fluid System.

Why don't you produce science bottles? There always are some tech to boost. Maybe science production is not ready because... completing it needs more belts? Please don't suggest stockpiling science bottles in boxes... I don't get it - the change proposed by the OP is really simple and it has an exi...

Re: Add Extra Despawn Timer to Higher Armour Tiers?

But who decides what amount of minutes is "ok" to lose? 15 minutes of not having fun playing a game is still 15 minutes of my life lost. Additionally being expected to waste time on inventory management - the most annoying aspect of the game - is absurd. Now we're getting somewhere (; Why should th...

Re: SPAM accounts invading the forum

Do the spambots still fall for that counting example ? No idea, just an example [; Something Factorio-related should work, however... (early recipe ingredients? with a link to the wiki?) Anything "easy" will be OK, but it should be "common knowledge". If it is factorio-specific you risk off-putting...

SPAM accounts invading the forum

I see you have a problem with SPAM accounts mass-registering on the forum. Looking just through the list of the "users" with birthdays today, 10 out of 14 are SPAM accounts (SEO-SPAM link in website and/or in signature): https://forums.factorio.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=77541 https://for...

Re: Speaking of playing the game the way you want ...

Allowing players to build canals is an too-easy defence against biters in default game: they cannot pass through and would allow to build undestroyable defences, if you build the canal far out so that no spitter can attack anything of value. That's a valid point, however I think that most of the re...

Re: Question: what settings are used to start game to make mega base?

To get from the last station to the very first - I think it takes about 6 hours of real time and 2-3 refueling :) So it's very safe to say if you would venture to establish such base right now it would take you 100 hours at least to do so (including all the intermediate stages). What's the point, w...

Re: Question: what settings are used to start game to make mega base?

A known tactic is to drive out, making the longest track you have ever made, until you find ore patches that you have never seen before. Continue the tracks until you are comfortable with the size of the ore patches. Then make your base there. The further you go out, the more dense ore you find. Ac...

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

Huh, I never looked at TSM. I kept going for LTN ever since I discovered, which was not exactly working the way I want. LTN works like calling a taxi. It's a neat idea but approaches the problem in such a way that it's no longer looking like the current train system. It also has the obligatory over...

COuldn't you make it so that the train that is currently loaded is counted toward the max but be the first one removed from the list when the amount of train decrease (And also probably the first to be added if he is not fully loaded to prevent the same probleme if the train stop is replenished dur...
