Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

As for oil products, my sugesstion is to keep current science, flamer fuel and rocket fuel recipes as is, but change following: 1) Change Petroleum Gas input in Sulfur recipe for Light Oil. This, along with Solid Fuel, gives Light Oil a major resource sink, so backing up should be less of a problem...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

The use of heavy oil in real life, after removing a mountain of sulfur from it, is for lubricants Ooooh that would be really cool: pipe heavy oil into chemical plant, out comes "a mountain" of sulfur and a pipe of lubricant. I haven't tried the mod so I don't know if it includes this or s...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

TLDR Please keep the input side changes in refining, but use heavy oil for sulfur and possibly for bitumen (for roads), and delay the introduction of light oil to advanced refining together with all cross-conversion tech. Do not delay con bots any further, pleeeeeease... Refining in more details: I ...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

Express belt being faster (4x yellow belt) becomes visually too fast. We have already tried to do that earlier. Is there a chance you can capture it and share the video here? Elon Musk is claiming that the batteries in a Gigafactory are going down the belts faster than the bullet... I would love to...

Re: Friday Facts #276 - Belt item spacing & Script rendering

As the smelting recipe change, I am proposing the following: - Iron plate, copper plate, stone brick: 3.2 - Steel: 16 That would mean exactly 48 stone furnaces per yellow belt, which is the number that people already build, but some of the last ones flicker with inactivity in 0.16, now all of them ...

Re: Friday Facts #275 - 0.17 Science changes

Side note: There is of course also the new belt spacing mentioned in the latest FFF that I was counting with, that allows even more rails to be supplied to the production pack. :) Just in case you still worry about your throughput, worry a bit less. This is so cool! 8-) Any buffs to the belts is mu...

Many good changes to the science packs, so I am with you on quite a number of things. It is great to see that deep thinking is dedicated to this: thank you for sharing not just the outcome but your and the dev team's thoughts on this subject! :D My only main concern is the number of rails required: ...

Game+ in Factorio?

Having played some console games, I was wondering: why don’t we have a Game+ feature in Factorio? For those not familiar with the Game+ idea, very briefly: it is typically added for replaying the game with some (or all) achievements or unlockable item and gear available to the player from the start,...

Please make infinite research items autostep to the next level with...

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

Another suggestion: Infinite research should be truly infinite, I believe. This meaning that if I have selected an infinite item, it should keep researching it without me selecting it again, even after reaching another level, until I select something else. So instead of clicking again and again on a...
