Re: Is using other people’s blueprints cheating?

It mostly depends on how you enjoy the game. Some considers factorio a puzzle game where you work on individual little problems so they detest blueprinting, which I respect. But I strongly disagree on the opinions that blueprinting " breaks the spirit of the game ". Factorio is a game abo...

Re: Alt-F4 #25 - Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency!

Wow, this was a real eye-opener!

I have been using the Efficiency modules only to offset the increased power consumption of other modules. I wasn't aware of the reduction in pollution output.

Re: Is using other people’s blueprints cheating?

I bought the game, I paid for it, I am entitled to play it any way I like. And the devs not only gave us BPs, they gave us the ability to export and import them. So any suggestion that using BPs is somehow cheating, I reject emphatically. What happened to me is this- I did it all on my own until I r...

Re: your thoughts on menu simulation

I like it but it needs more fighting, more guts & gore and BIG explosions, less of the boring assembly line stuff; there are videos of that all over YouTube. Everybody and his dog has made a Factorio video, (including some people who seemingly can't string 5 words together into a coherent senten...

Re: Factorio confessions

I had an educational experience yesterday. Wandering around with the personal flamethrower selected, I accidentally hit the spacebar and lit my production line on fire. Then the construction robots swung into repair mode and proceeded to fly into the fire. Though I'm not sure if it actually did them...

Re: Power Poles

New poles are better. This thread is meaningleas. No argument for why means there's no substance to critique and no need for any counter argument to refute your position. It would honestly never have occurred to me to complain about the aesthetics of the power poles. Given that the graphics of Fact...

I'm playing Scenario 5 of the 1.0.0 demo and when I click the button to access the "Train Scheduling and Stops" tutorial, it crashes. I have successfully done all the tutorials before that one. I have attached a screenshot, a save file, and the log file. The demo is very good, congratulati...

Re: Need just a LITTLE help with Demo Scenario 5

OK, excellent, thank you both! Once I got the train tech, the facilities did indeed make sense. I have a thing about trains. I have since I was a little boy. Firing up the train and steaming off to that Northwest Facility was a thrill. I was like - Casey Jones, mounted to the cabin Casey Jones, orde...

Need just a LITTLE help with Demo Scenario 5

I love the demo. It's marvelous. I have actually purchased and downloaded the full game at this point but haven't installed it yet. I want to finish the demo, for educational purposes. So, this is demo v1.0 I am on the 5th scenario, the one with the train tracks. I know the first two things I need t...
