Re: Friday Facts #352 - New website

i have had issues with sites that used really dark backgrounds since i first saw sites (which was long enough ago that i don't really want to think about it). for instance i use the lightest theme on this very forum to save my eyes. i like the new style site and totally get why the trademark colours...

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!

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.

single server - multiple games/maps

hi all. i run factorio (multiplayer) on a dedicated server (debian - 32GB RAM). have only ever run one map on it but am thinking about creating another using the space exploration mod. this may be something obvious that i've missed but a bit of searching and a look at the wiki hasn't helped any. run...

Re: How did you discover Factorio?
