Re: Suggestion: Solar boilers and other stupid fluid tricks

Like the idea. +1
Why not add Hydroelectric Dams as well! :twisted:
Sorry, I'm still very salty about that...
Anyway, these 'solar boiler' things could be a bit like a clean version of nuclear power.
You would have the intense heat from the solar boiler to turn the turbine instead!

Re: Belts vs Bots - A response to FFF #224

The problem is that bots go from '0 to 100' the moment you get more advanced logistics chests. Part of this is because the technologies leading up to the chests are overpowered, so there's no middle ground by the time a player gets the chests, everything is in place to abuse logistics. If I, as a u...

Re: Your Logistic Robots Are Broken! [Forum Game]

Your bots are gone for a while, then come back with the next forest they could find, holding it in their robot-grab-thingies. Have fun with 20M raw wood. I request enough belts to replace all bots.

Re: how long have you played factorio ?

to me this is a legos game, where i can build up and knock down huge piles at once. Why does everyone say "legos"?! I always have used "lego" to describe them, as a plural and a noun. Example 1: "I have a lego brick" (Singular Noun) Example 2: "My floor is covered...

Re: Thesis: Its trains that replace belts

Belts NEED to be changed in some way, whether being nerfed or buffed.
They are just too unrealistic at the moment.

Re: Mega-Base from the devs

Honestly, even if bots are nerfed to the ground, they still have the fundamental issue of being simple. There is much fewer optimisations trick you can do with bots than you do with belts. That's why the idea of replacing bots with cable car seems the best solution for me. UPS-wise, you can buff bo...

That isn't a conveyer though, don't even know what it is to be honest.

The idea of adjusting performance, however, would be quite good late game, due to the high power involved.

Re: Add a shell eject sound to the Artillery Cannon

It has been used in most action films to date.
It appears in everything to starwars, to mad max, to gladiator.
Because of this, it has a slightly infamous reputation, due to it being the stock scream on the market.
