Various managers like powerplant manager

I like single player. I've got sprawling bases, multiple powerplants and I don't know if one has run out of coal until I drive over. I don't know if a distant mining operation has run out of raw material to mine. Managers could alert me to these conditions. Most games have this sort of thing. Also, ...

Re: First attempt at blueprint construction works like a charm

Okay. Started to replace the purple chests with red. That and for some reason you have to have the processing plants in your inventory if you want the construction bots to build them. Most everything else they can build from iron and copper plates. I wish I could write labels on the world so I'd be ...

First attempt at blueprint construction works like a charm

The second use of the blueprint worked well too. I used fifteen construction robots and provider chests full of supplies. I then tried to repeat this success with a third and fourth construction of the same complex. I had don'e something to the blueprint by right clicking or something so that I coul...

Re: Why did pictures on the internet get small?

Wow. I didn't know those tools existed. I stopped going to google images a long time ago. They help you find big images but they make you work for them. You have to set parameters and then go to the site because it doesn't just show you the big pics in the results. You might even have to sign in, re...

Money

Back in the seventies prices went up and it was blamed on oil. Everything has to be shipped. Oil prices had skyrocketed. Shipping uses oil and gasoline so everything that had to be shipped went up in price. Well, lately oil prices went down. Gas prices went down and its been about a year but I don't...

Re: Why did pictures on the internet get small?

Phones. That's something I hadn't thought of. That might be part of it but I think the previous guy got it mostly right in thinking the web hosting sites just want a lot of money so people went for smaller pictures.

Re: Exoskeleton

My screenshots on steam aren't working now and I can't figure it out. Its supposed to play a sound and it doesn't. i don't have twitter, not really or any of those imaging sites or even a printer. Anyhow, it turns out I don't have the MK2 armor yet. I have the armor before that and I don't think the...

This forum seems dead

Factorio is such a happening game and yet the forum seems kind of dead. Is that how its been or it it because of them selling on Steam now or what? I thought Factorio was just catching on but maybe I just missed it and now people have moved on. If anyone knows where they've all gone, if anyone knows...

Why did pictures on the internet get small?

Hello. I've been on the internet for awhile and I remember in olden times I would sometimes find huge, high resolution pictures on websites. Back then I'd search images on a web search called "alltheweb.com". They no longer exist. There was some kind of financial meltdown and stuff in stor...

Re: Exoskeleton

When I'm wearing the exoskeleton will my character look different because I don't see any difference? I don't feel like I'm moving faster or carrying big loads. I've got the portable fusion reactor placed on the power armor's screen with some batteries. The personal laser defense is red. I'm also we...

Exoskeleton

Okay, I have an exoskeleton and batteries and MK2 batteries installed and also I think a personal laser. How do I turn it on? I put on the power armor but I don't see any result.

Re: What's the first game you played with crafting?

After Thief 2, I didn't bother with crafting until I got Terraria, my first crafting centered game. Far as I know there weren't any crafting games until Terraria. My favorite thing was orchestrating massive floods by linking underground lakes and dousing lava.

Re: Robots not servicing all the requester chests

There are dotted yellow lines between the roboports. They have provider chests but the provider is not always in the same zone as the requester.

Robots not servicing all the requester chests

I have quite a few requester chests that aren't getting their requests filled even though I've got lots of leveled up L Robots in the yellow area. I still have to walk around and fill some machines by hand. Is there a cure?

Picked up product would be added to the crafting queue

Let say I build a roboport on my person. If I forget the gears but I have the iron plates it will start making a lot of gears. It would be nice if I could pick up some gears and these would then fill the gear requirement. Since it displays all the ingredients necessary on the lower left, this would ...

What's the first game you played with crafting?

For me it was Thief 2, The Metal Age. The missions at the end had machinery and you could make health potions and flash bombs and other things. You had to look for things and remember stuff. I was not amused but it grew on me a little. ***EDIT*** THREE PART QUESTION Whats the first game you played w...

Fun and expensive craftable event

I'd like to be able to craft an item that would give you a spectacular concert or gathering. The item would require a lot of resources. You might have to build a special enclosure that might even include gates, strobe lights, music and fireworks and once the event item is enacted, the aliens would b...

Objects that you just crafted on your person pulse

Often I craft an item on my person and then I have a heck of a time finding it. I would prefer it if freshly crafted items pulsed with a dim light in the inventory for a few minutes. That way I'll be able to quickly find them. Often when I craft an item, I need it right away and searching the invent...

Move camera position when you enter vehicles

Its hard to tell which end of the car is which. If the camera moved forward a little in the direction you're pointing it would give you a longer view of potential trouble and it would subtly indicate the direction you're pointing. In other words when you get in the car, you would no longer be center...
