Re: Reading Energy Consumption

I think the info screen should be cleared out. It was very confusing to me and it is confusing to others as well, like in new Arumba let's play... he looks at the screen, see under-filled green bar with consumption and says "Perfect, I am only using fraction of energy I am producing." (meaning I am ...

Re: Version 0.8.8

I, for once, decided that bugs are not productive and decided to stop writing them. I'll update on my success in this matter. If that was a joke I didn't get it Most likely a joke. You really can't decide to write bugs or not, they just happen. So the notion of stopping writing them is quite funny....

Re: Friday Facts #18

I am guessing that factorio is made in C++, just because of the multiple inheritance at the end? True Factorio is written in C++ but class inheritance is not specific C++ only. Class inheritance is used in all Object Oriented languages (C++, C#, Java, Pearl, Phyton, Ruby, PHP, Objective Pascal and ...

Re: Friday Facts #16

There's a game called Star Ruler that has ship designs and you can export/import 'blueprints'. It's quite interesting. They even have a dedicated section of their website that people can upload them to. That sort of thing would go a long way with blueprints here when it's all up and running I recko...

Re: Pirating Factorio

Good advice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet) In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat ...

Re: Pirating Factorio

It might be worth a try though, he might be to lazy to make a new one. Really? Can you really believe malokin would NOT create a new account right now? (btw, I fell asleep shortly after editing the posts, simply couldn't keep my eyes open any longer). If I banned malokin's account he'd simply creat...

Re: Pirating Factorio

The ulimate would be to get the devs to be annoyed in real life. I don't think devs give a flying f*ck, but instead probably rolling over the floor, laughing. If i can make craigslist hookers show up to kovarex's house for in-calls every hour for a week, I dont think he will be laughing. I think he...

Re: Pirating Factorio

Btw, it is not my call but banning does not solve anything, he will just create another account. You're right. However at what point do you decide that someone is ban worthy? I mean if someone is threatening the forum, the devs personal lives and you aren't prepared to ban them... you pretty much a...

Re: Pirating Factorio

Guys why is this discussion is going on? 90% of this thread was never about pirating the game. I ask mods again - please take this thread down, I am tired of this egoistical drama train of a thread. Not that I disagree with you that the thread is a mess, but I do not see any reason to lock it, if y...

Re: Pirating Factorio

:? If I knew you prefer to be titled script kiddie, I would have used that. Hacking would mean I intend to find security vulnerabilities in OpenPHP forum software, thats silly. I intend to get a small force of people and automated computers to use already made tools to attack the forum. Point taken...

Re: Pirating Factorio

@Robik, calling the people at 888chan "hackers" is a stretch. Do you think script kiddies would waste their time attacking factorio? I do, and I intend to leverage every resource I can against those that censor me. Even if it disrupts factorio's development, the dev's KNEW trying to fight piracy wo...

Re: Pirating Factorio

You are so wrong, i am gonna have to change my IP like crazy, create new forum accounts over and over, and probably used timed automated posting to get around the moderators removing the links. Simply posting it after they delete it probably isnt going to work for long. I'm assembling the tools I n...

Re: Pirating Factorio

I intend for this forum to become a warzone of competing forum and anti-forum technologies. It's sad, but I'v been backed into a...

Re: Pirating Factorio

Usually, you have to choose one, sell it, or show ads., if you do not want to piss your customers... I would be pissed if Factorio had ads in after I bought it. Sure that's the usual approach, but it doesn't need to be the only approach. The devs could offer a cheaper version of Factorio with the a...

Re: Pirating Factorio

I think that justifying piracy with the costs of developing something is just a bad argument, regardless of anything else. As soon as it costs anything to produce something, you're making up arbitrary boundaries for costs. Indeed. Though some might say *pointing fingers* that digital products cost ...

Re: Pirating Factorio

You are comparing a product where you need to do X, Y and Z to be able to sell it against a product where you need to do only X. Yes but, I was trying to take the most typical examples and generalize them, not compare those 'some' that are atypical. I would argue that in typical cases, there is mor...

Re: Pirating Factorio

I think the real point against this is that a digital good can go to hundreds or thousands of people once made very quickly, whereas with physical goods you must first remake that item x amount of times and ship it to each person individually and each good shipped has both the cost of base manufact...

Re: Pirating Factorio

Yes, excavator might be handy, but if you do not have money for it, no worries, you can improve your shovel yourself and make a motor-shovel... Well now, what if you are digging MILES of sewer tunnels? Sure you could do it with a single person and a shovel (or bare hands) but it is by no means PRAC...
