I want to examine your circuit network

I want to be able to look closely at how circuit networks work so I was wondering if I could download some saves from other people's games. I think this would be a lot better than watching tutorials and looking at pictures and listening to people explain because the terminology is confusing. I'd nee...

Buy blueprints of efficient assembly layouts

Let the player buy efficient factory blueprints with resources. Sell them in parts like a blueprint for red circuit boards or a blueprint for an advanced module. The player pays for them with raw resources. Let people buy them even before they have robots and make it so they just have to fill in the...

Re: You know you play Factorio too much when...

I read a news story about sea birds eating plastic because it smells like food and I thought the sea birds needed to have modules installed and equipped with a small tote bag so they'd pick the fishy smelling plastic, put it in their totes and bring it to a recycling center for delicious healthy tre...

Re: New turrets, traps, mines

A water pipe mounted turret that fired scalding would be cool, especially with the right sound and visual effects.

Re: for some reason my refinery is not working. any ideas why ?

You have to store or keep using all the fluids and products coming out of your oil system. Oil production slows drastically in a short time but it never completely stops so you might want to add some productivity modules to your oil wells. Check to see if some of the products your making out of one ...

Re: Is there any point to sending rockets into space without the

Yea. The first time I sent the rocket up I saw the inventory box and I had no idea what went in there so I loaded it with laser turrets. It blasted off and nothing happened. I knew the game was supposed to end. I happened to look over the satellite and that's where it tells me that the satellite sho...

Is there any point to sending rockets into space without the

What happens if I send rockets into space without the satellite in sandbox mode? Do I get something like the ability to watch distant sectors of my factory or the ability to bomb nests from a distance or is it just a huge waste of resources?

Re: What is some good news in your life right now?

My right ear was totally plugged up with wax about a week ago so I started Debroxing it and have had some success in getting the excessive and nasty goo out. Normal earwax is an important part of the ear. And get this, the skin in the ear is designed to grow from the inside to the outside so that it...

Make your Kim Yong Un style supervillain threats here

On April 3rd I will be setting off my hydrogen bomb powered earth jet. Under construction for the last 12 years the engine consists of massive series of underground chambers in solid granite in which we've attached an unbelievably huge directional tube and jet nozzle. When the series of bombs is set...

Re: How do you manually drive a train in god mode?

Don't forget to put coal in it every time you put the locomotive down. W for forward S for reverse. I have no idea how to switch tracks manually. When I get to the end of the line I absorb the loco and then walk to the other end of the cars and put it down there so I can go in both directions on the...

Re: Copper wire almost invisible to aging gamers

Yea. In real life there is power loss over distance. Friction. The wires in your house get warm when electricity is used. That's because copper does offer a little resistance to the electrons and the resulting friction creates heat. Its part of the reason why humongous solar farms in death valley wo...

Re: Songs to Factorioize by

When you've been stuck on the planet so long that you come to believe your machines are living beings that need to be rallied. I play this for them before attacking the nests. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jtpf8N5IDE

Re: First attempt at blueprint construction works like a charm

I tried it and it works but the name doesn't show up on the minimap and the trainstation is a teeny red dot that looks just like the red dots of the nests on the minimap. Be nice if the name of the station appeared on the minimap but only if there aren't too many of them. Right now I'm using the tra...

Re: Copper wire almost invisible to aging gamers

Transformers? Do you mean substations? So far I used a substation once. I put it out in the middle of nowhere. I put down a line of poles after it and a line of laser turrets in their power area and they didn't fire as vigorously as when I had no substation so I took it down. Not sure if things have...

I suppose this should be a two part thread. What's the first game you played with any kind of crafting? Resident Evil would be included because you had to mix a couple of plants once in awhile. Part 2 - What's the first real crafting game you played that focused on crafting? For me that would have b...

Copper wire almost invisible to aging gamers

The copper wire that is strung between poles is almost invisible to someone like myself who does not have the sharpest eyesight anymore, especially with some of the backgrounds. This is also true of the edges of the electric mining drills. Of course you have to put poles up between the mining drills...

Vehicles should glow a little

Tanks and cars should glow a little so that we don't crash into our own buildings while making deliveries at night. Perhaps we could build some glow lights for, especially, the tank which makes very sharp turns at low speed. You could actually destroy something with the tank by not moving other than...

Re: Various managers like powerplant manager

If you are thinking that I can craft my own circuit to form my own manager... is that even possible and if it is, is it likely that someone like myself would know how to do it? My guess is that some top members in the Factorio community, probably less than 10 could do this. That means a lot of peopl...
