Re: The thing that bothers me since game start

I'm sure it happened. The guides are usually adjustable so they can come loose. If the timing between, scrolls, star wheels and machine heads like cappers isn't "just right" it can be quite messy. We made some new star wheels for a line filling plastic bottles with vinegar. At first we had...

Re: The thing that bothers me since game start

The conveyor moving and items staying still is exactly how some conveyors work IRL. Bottling lines in particular work this way. The constant motion of the conveyor pushes the bottles along the line and into the next process. Many of the operations like capping or labeling require the bottle to be ta...

Re: Planning vs Winging it

The only way to win in Factorio is to derive some enjoyment out of the process of building and problem solving. Play how you want. There are a number of you tubers who offer some good advice, there are also some who are way to pedantic with placement and ratios and what not, who basically just suck ...

Re: Isnt Factorio for Casual Players? Help with some tips

ALWAYS PUT 4, PRODUCTIVITY 3 MODULES IN YOUR ROCKET SILO. Hand craft them if you have to. This will reduce the number of parts for the rocket by 40% which is huge when you consider that you would other wise need 1000 each of Light Weight Structures, Rocket Fuel and Rocket Control units. Which are a...

Re: Isnt Factorio for Casual Players? Help with some tips

I don't post around here much so take everything I say as if I was a noob. That said I have nearly 1400 hours in game since I started in October last year (yes I should get out more). I am still learning new things. Factorio is a journey of discovery, of learning how systems work, supply chains and ...

Re: New Character GUI (eye strain)

The only thing annoying me about it at the moment is that screens that have scrolled don't stick. Let me explain. I am playing the Krastorio 2 mod ATM. This has added a ton of stuff to make and do. Consequently the crafting queues are extremely long requiring one to scroll down to get to items at t...

Re: Just bought the game; What were Your first impressions?

So I might be a bit late for a first impression review, but I'll tell you anyway. I tested out the demo like 5 years ago and thought I'd come back to it when it had more development. I was bored and still waiting on updates to other games and I saw a review online of Factorio and vaguely remembering...
