Re: An AI for Factorio?!

I would appreciate the possibility to program player-like robots (units that have the same abilities as the player but that are an AI) and custom assemblers with a visual programming interface. This would allow me, the player, to program my own AI into my factory. Examples - Make your own logistic s...

Re: 1-to-N sorting of ores: Is there any hope?

So, your conclusion is: Get rid of 1-to-N sorting ASAP?!

1-to-N sorting of ores: Is there any hope?

Is there any hope to ever balance the 1-to-N ore sorting? Examples: - I need way more Fe than Cu. I mean more than 2 times more. - I need tones of Al. How to get rid of Au and/or Zn? There are ways to balance.. - You can sink any amount of Si into Fe or Steel. - Rubyte Chunks: Get rid of Ni into Ti....

I don‘t really get this thread. We have an announced release date a few months from now. Little suprising there won‘t be any major content update before that.
After that, I agree, it‘s hopefully time for expansions.
It feels like we're a few months before release since 0.16 now...

Re: Meaningful Content Update

I know that the last 20% take 80% of the time and that I got way more for my money than I could ever expect. But I'm also getting slightly tired of watching the devs polish the game. I'm not complaining, I'm not demanding. It's up to them what they do with their time (and given their success, they'r...

I launched a rocket after 34 hrs with my second base.
My best speed run is 3:15 for 0.18 (using a blue print I designed).

Re: Science Pack Production Speed

Most has been said: Build equal numbers of science pack of each kind. You will need roughly speaking about 50k of each red/green/blue. A 5/6/12/7/7-build (# of blue assemblers for red/green/blue/purple/yellow, +3 fabs for grey if you play with aliens) will bring you to the rocket after about 20 hrs....

+1 for

Re: [0.18.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

If you think it's possible it might be a worthwhile idea to create a corrosion mechanic of some sort. Like if you put the wrong fluid into the wrong pipe it erodes that pipe and which eventually self-destructs. Not sure if it's workable but it's the main reason why people use different kind of pipi...

Re: Friday Facts #336 - Offshore pump redesign

The pump really looks great. I think, the pump should be powered by coal as a burner pump. With fluid handling, you'll get the electric version. All pumps shall be useable for everything, incl. offshore. The burner one just needs fuel and shall be less effective and less pump power. The electric on...

Re: Question: what settings are used to start game to make mega base?

I have an OCD problem to build on ressources. And since a mega base is going to be big, I need large spaces without them. So I set the density low, size rather large and the richness to max. Take into accout that you won't need the amount of uran on the map, so set that lower. And there is also too ...

Re: Playing with biters

Ok, I did the same map without biters for comparison: Endscreen no biters.jpg 4 hours shorter. If I take into account that I had to wait about 1 hour for the 2000 research for the satellite, also on "normal" the biters "distracted" me 50% of the time. This would be the sum of - d...

Did it again yesterday and today on standard settings. That in deed is the kindergarden-world... I unfortunately didn't save the replay :-(( However, since the map was relatively open, I had to clear quite a few nests to keep the biters out of the pollution cloud. This might not be the best strategy...

Re: Playing with biters

What do you mean by "standard" blue prints ? (I don't re-use blueprints from game to game, since they're usually too different. Ditto for knowing ratios - I hardly know any of them.) The 5/6/12/7/7 science setup is always the same. That' easy enough to remember (at least after trying to g...

Re: Playing with biters

3/4 of the time sounds a lot. But coming at it from the other direction : Did you use blueprints from previous games ? How many of the vanilla ratios do you know by heart ? Did you try something new in this game not biter-related that you never did before ? I have standard blue prints but use copy ...

Re: Playing with biters

The number of biters that spawned during the clearing of their base was huge. The whole screen was paved with dead bodies. The moment to you approach the enemy base swarms of biters/spitters attack. It didn't appear to be the normal "pollution turns into biter" thing. You lure them out of ...
