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

It works fine running on youtube while I play the game.

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...

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

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

I transport everything on the same low speed belts because trains, to me, are not worth the trouble yet because I am still working on producing more efficiently things like circuits. (Dig the Czeklish backwards talk) The result is that the belt has iron plates, copper, coal and maybe gears and circu...

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...

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.

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 stores got cra...

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.
