Re: I want to play factorio but I lack a goal

another vote for multiplayer for keeping things interesting from me. played the tutorials solo but i bore myself when playing alone. the shared goal of multiplayer (assuming that's how one is playing) keeps me coming back to it.

Re: Friday Facts #360 - 1.0 is here!

well done one and all.
i'm relatively new to the show (and wish i'd bought a ticket way earlier) but have already gotten so much enjoyment from it and my factory continues to grow.

Re: [0.18.38] crash updating with --apply-update

good it's working at least.

Re: [0.18.38] crash updating with --apply-update

on my headless server i just stop the game and overwrite with the files from the updated version of the experimental build (after backing up of course). it has 32GB of RAM though.
maybe try this method if the automatic method is failing.

Re: Friday Facts #356 - Blueprint library for real

it's very good of you to share that (some of your story). we're all different and process and deal with things in separate ways. glad you found your path. i've benefited from factorio daily as an engrossing distraction from various things that are going on. new blueprint stuff looks great. i messed ...

Re: A chance encounter

similar here. i saw a clip of someone live streaming factorio on twitch. i had been playing minecraft for over 3 years weekly with a friend (on the same map). showed factorio to him and he said, amongst other things, it has trains . yes it certainly does...and so much more. we haven't revisited mine...

Re: Running 2 factorio versions

i had the same question a month or so back. as mentioned the .zip version is the way to go.
i have three different 0.18 'installs' all with different versions.
it also helps when you connect to multiplayer servers that utilise differing mods from one another.

Re: finally built first silo!

first rocket is complete along with a satellite (actually 3 satallites) and plenty of resources for starting the next one. launch will be happening tomorrow (when my cohort and i are both online at the same time). thanks for all your tips.

Re: finally built first silo!

It is true that the tooltip for the rocket part could (should?) mention that you need to craft 100 rocket parts to have a complete rocket. Thus, you can see this already before researching the rocket silo tech – by just checking what it unlocks. yeah it took the wind out of my sails a bit...already...

Put productivity modules into the silo. That drastically cuts down on the materials you need for the rocket parts. It increases the assembly time even further though
cheers. appreciate the tip. went with speed modules first but will get some of the productivity versions on the go.
