Re: [MOD 0.14] Text Plates

Odd thing when laying ghost letters to be built by bots - the letters are offset by one. So HELLO becomes IFMMP or something.

Re: [MOD 0.13.0+] Wireless Signals 0.1.2

Very nice mod, but can I ask, what is the reason for the alphanumeric/colours only? It really limits what I'd like to be doing. Also, other mods which add new colours (e.g. Dectorio) aren't picked up because there's no way for your mod to know that new signal "violet" is a colour. One othe...

My favourite mod. So simple and yet so much pleasure.

Re: Autosave problems

Fair enough. I guess it doesn't sync in background while your're playing? Yes, it does. But when I'm at home I don't have my laptop on. To sync it *down* to my laptop I would have to turn it on and connect. That is an extra piece of work which I don't always have time for, and getting back to the o...

Re: Autosave problems

Also you say you're syncing from your PC to your Laptop. Why are you not using local (wireless) lan for that? Is that a bug in steam sync too? No, I just don't always have time or want to make the time to do that before I leave home. I want it automated. It is Factorio. Btw config.ini does have a s...

Autosave problems

Factorio is one of the greatest computer games ever made, but autosave is a problem. I live in the UK, where as standard, homes have ADSL. The A stands for "asymmetric". That means my download speed is 40x faster than my upload. I play on two different PCs, a home gaming machine and occasi...

Re: 0.16 Map generation Feedback

This is a preview of a map with oil generation set to "very low" and "very small". Clearly broken. In general I quite like the new terrain but the resource generation is way off. It's like there is some kind of scaling factor with distance from the start area which is tuned to ov...

It's only as bad as gash, knob, minge and flaps.

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.15 + 0.16

I agree DLC has a bad connotation. It is also arguably moot for a game with a decent modding platform. Why would I pay for expansions when I can also download half-decent ones for free? Factorio is the only game I can think of that handled Early Access / paid beta well. The guys and girls behind it ...

Re: Friday Facts #132 - Side Project

Very annoyed and disappointed that you are considering going down a mobile / F2P route. You've had massive success with PC Factorio and rightly so, you have been exemplars of Early Access / "paid beta" game development in a world where EA has now become synonymous with failure and con merc...

Re: Thank you (Make the dev-team happy today!)

I really enjoyed this game when I first got it, although I wished it was a bit more like modded Minecraft. Now I wish that modded Minecraft was a bit more like Factorio.

Be careful with Steam. The kiddies there are as toxic as a swarm of biters.

Keep it up and thanks for hours of fascination.
