Re: Version 0.16.25

Changes Inserters and belt sideloading can now squash item on belt even when the gap isn't big enough. The squashed gap is extended to normal size once the front of the belt starts to move again. This means, that inserter rows and side loading can produce fully compressed belts without the usage of...

Re: I Don't Even Know????

Before factorio launched on steam, you could pay $15 extra and have your name (or arbitrary garbage you put in the form) appear in the game. They're still shown on some things like radars, labs, trains.

Those lasers are nice, but not dramatic enough! Need a fancy effect at the impact point, like this :D

Re: Friday Facts #226 - New mod portal & other news

The way you continually talking about it as the "new mod portal" somehow didn't make me expect "the current one, except not slow"... am I the only one who's a bit confused?

Re: My wishes for Mod Portal 2.0

One of the things that would greatly benefit the mod portal is the removal of the login requirement. It does not make sense to have to log in just to download a mod. There is an extremely simple solution here, buy the game. Why should they waste money for bandwidth for people who never gave them any?

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

1: Modules and Beacons being as they currently are means that there is really only one endgame layout that is optimal. Which is the ever famous alternating rows of beacons and assemblers, which everyone uses because it is clearly optimal. If modules and/or beacons were changed so that there was mor...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

While considering splitter improvements perhaps variable lane-width splitters could become a thing. Though it would probably over-simplify belt-balancer designs. That'd be nice. Having everyone stamp down the same set of unnecessary belt balancing blueprints surely isn't fun or interesting, and nei...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

So many splitter improvements :D

To buff belts further, why not finish up and enable those loaders by default?

Yeah, the problem is that some of my belts were ugly. I find visual quality to be more important than some belt sorting tricks that I'd never have a use for.

Re: Accessing the game via steam family sharing does not allow for factorio.com access

You can play multiplayer just fine, what you can not do is play on a server that requires you to verify your identity because that would make any ban list useless. That's... actually a very good point. You could just keep making new steam accounts. I haven't thought of that. So, even if support for...

Re: Accessing the game via steam family sharing does not allow for factorio.com access

It doesn't seem like anyone is getting the point? Either family sharing should be disabled, or allow you full access to the game including multiplayer. Sharing the account with the original owner is obviously not a solution.

Re: Links on the top of the forum

But after clicking them 1 or 2 times you just get used to it working this way...
