Ability to edit scenario or map conditions

Hey Devs! I am finding that after I create a map and play it through, I move on to other maps and/or scenarios. But if after a few months if go back to a map that I created, I can't remember what the map conditions are. Pollution on/off? Biter expansion? Railway or deathworld? So my suggestion is th...

Re: Electrified concrete

This has been a request for a long, long time. I'm all for it. The "wire" to the entity makes no sense, as it isn't that way now. I play mostly solo, so for me I went into the entities.lua, created a backup and then adjusted the original. I changed the range on the substation - made it 100...

"Save To:" folder option in menu or Config

Hi Guys! How difficult would it be to implement a configurable path for the save games folder? Can the user change where the save game goes? My scenario is this - I play Factorio on 2 different computers, one desktop and one laptop. Mapping a local drive in my home for saved games would make playing...

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

If there is one thing I've learned from loaders.... don't ask the players to decide on idea implementations. Just put the ideas in. The player will get used to it. Especially if the ideas make sense.

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

I'm new to factorio so this is probably a stupid question...but what are loaders? I tried to find them and I can't find anything on the wiki. I found an old FFF that brought them up as a random idea the dev was toying with. An out of date mod post...and a lot of random reddit posts about them. Are ...

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

And here's the Proof of the Loaders OverPowerdness: http://i.imgur.com/sRlxoSK.jpg Now anyone can see how using loaders in production setups is so much more efficient than inserters. They don't need power poles! You can save so much wood with them! Also notice how carefully loaders distribute the c...

[REQUEST] Specialized refineries .15x

Hello all! There were a couple of different mods for .14 that allowed single production in a refinery. Made oil setups a bit easier for us casuals. Hoping someone out there will update or create a new mod for .15. Essentially choose which product a refinery produces vs the refinery producing all 3 p...

Doodad Option in map editor

Simply - when using the map editor and placing terrain, an option to randomly add the proper doodads and/or trees, rocks, etc. as you are placing the terrain.

As it stands, when you add terrain it's "blank".

It would certainly speed up map creations! :)

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

Those are a lot of valid points. What I truly find interesting is that this discussion is still going on... and only 22% of users who voted said they shouldn't be implemented. How is their voice heard but ours were not? I'm trying to recall a recent FFF (or was it reddit?) where one of the developer...

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

That's nice, but you need to get with the times and make HD graphics for those :D What's interesting about that comment is the loader template isn't high res. If you try to incorporate the new graphics (from any new high res graphics) with the old, Factorio won't load. Tried to use the high res. Bu...

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

Ok, so after drooling over Zeblote's loader graphics, I decided to take a crack at it. This design borrows *heavily* on the Angel Logistics Mod (respect and credit to Arch666Angel!), but what drove me nuts is how clean those loaders looked. There were some graphical issues as well, like lining up wi...

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

I'll definitely take a crack at it. I did something like yourself, mashing sprites together (see below). It's simple, for sure. But man - when I saw yours I almost choked. I'll take a shot at it when the high res graphics come out for combinator... perhaps it'll be a little easier than coloring ever...

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

I actually didn't realize that was the end of a combinator ... again I don't do circuit stuff. That in itself is hours and hours, especially with .15 coming.

It sure looks great. You could definitely post them in the mods section - I think they would be very popular. :idea:
