Re: [MOD 0.10.0] Resource-Monitor-Mod v0.3.0

I really like the idea of this mod. I have to try it :) Is it allowed to make a suggestion for this nice mod, though? Because if so... ... I'd also like to get notified when resources are about to deplete, like: "Copper Patch NE #2 has dropped below 10% of its reserves" In any case, I'll g...

Re: [Lore] So what's going on inside research labs anyways?

Thoughts: I've problems to understand, what you wanted to say. :) No problem, the two of you end up saying nearly the same thing: you describe how the lack of a previous industry requires adaption of schematics (due to lack of "high-tech" stuff), and how research tries to circumvent this ...

Re: Adv. circuit - craftingTime rebalancing

I don't think it it a point of difficulty or constraint, though. I think it is a point of credibility - one machine suppling 18(!!) machines just feels "off", nothing more. Creating an automated supply chain does not become more difficult just because you need to place 4 assemblers instea...

Re: Adv. circuit - craftingTime rebalancing

The reason why inserters are made quickly is because of gameplay, since many people will make a lot of inserters manually. That's why assemblers, pipes, transport belts, miners,... have a (unrealistic) short building time too. I kindly disagree again. Many people will make lots of inserters manuall...

Re: Adv. circuit - craftingTime rebalancing

I disagree. I feel the production time on advanced circuits is okay, they are an endgame-ish intermediate, after all - if you need more, build more factories/smelters/miners :P If anything, the crafting time on regular circuits should be upped to 1.5-2 seconds ;) To elaborate on that opinion, almost...

Re: 2^x vs y*10^x

Honestly, if The 2^x system isn't going to stick, I'd rather that the entire stack-based inventory be dropped altogether. Why would that be? What is the objective difference in the general representation of the inventory between now and then that spoils the current system for you in conjunction wit...

I wanted to use my chance here and say I experience the same issue, mostly to bump this topic and increase it's visibility (I'm annoying like that ;) ) One a more serious note, I've lost my game yesterday when turrets refused to shoot the 15-18 small biters as they were killing me.

Re: 2^x vs y*10^x

I Voted for Stacksizes built around a basenumber of ten. One reason being it's more intuitive (whose hands have x^2 fingers, really? besides terrible afflictions), making it easier to add, second, everything lines up with requesters and smart inserters. Some say that this greatly reduced the capacit...

Re: So i have an issue with the alien things

Power armor 2 is def end game tech, but I cant recommend enough using laser turrets instead of investing in gun turrets, AP rounds, Shooting Speed, Damage upgrades, and all that mess. Yes, generally, laser turrets are much, much better, no doubt. My tangent about big-ish clusters of gun turrets was...

Re: So i have an issue with the alien things

I don't agree with every sentiment here; I had made very good experience with submachineguns (in the early game, that is). The important point is: don't ever bother with regular ammo; try to go straight for piercing rounds magazines. Those deal 2.5 times the base damage, or, in less 'mathy' terms, a...

An alternative to polling the status of gigabajilions of trees for the need to regenerate, sixty times a second each (and let's be honest, Factorios forests are dense ), Not a problem.

I do like the idea of not having to see random bars of uninteresting information.

Re: Will price go up if i have already purchased?

Soo, having bought the base game only, will the price for the higher tiers (scenario pack & your name in-game) go up, as well? Or will the raise only apply to the cost of the game itself, but not the additional 'backer' tiers? I also have this question :) Frontpage has an answer to this questio...

Re: Will price go up if i have already purchased?

once you've bought it, you've bought it, how would they charge you more for something you already own? o.O I'd assume the question to be related to something I've been wondering as well. Obviously, they can't retroactivly charge more for things you've already paid, but there are multiple 'tiers' of...
