Re: Factor 1000 for energy

Because 'realistic' does not consider the abstraction of a game. Nor is it particularly needed. This is a game. I don't know why everyone needs it to be 'realistic' in so many ways I mean really... why is that so important to so many people? I'm genuinely curious. Just my view of these things: Beca...

Re: Factor 1000 for energy

Using real world terms is a way of likening something to the real world. It doesn't have to translate beyond that. It doesn't have to be accurate. IE using joules and watts rather than using factons and factorions for your units of power. I mean they can make up whatever they like, but humans know ...

Re: Fix the transport belts already

Of course I can work around these quirks... I just don't see how this makes sense from either a realism or gameplay viewpoint, and it leaves me spending mental energy on things I find neither interesting nor entertaining. They aren't broken. They work a certain way. You want them to work a differen...

Re: Factorio MMO [Idea]

An "MMO" styled game could work. Provided the players ultimately ran it. See whenever you throw "MMO" out there you are essentially putting the connotation of company hosted resources and 'closed' servers/realms where the entire games population is funneled into. Those games tend to have a bad reput...

Re: is effectivity module op?

I actually like the modules. Though I do think the current implementation is a tad 'dicky'. But I don't really know a better way to implement it to make it less dicky. I love the ability to reduce my energy requirements or speed or give bonus production. I like to think of it as "reconfiguring" the ...

Re: Logistics storage fixes

Hmm I'm not really sure what exactly you are getting at. But I've seen this sort of question raised before in other posts. You have the right idea though, it is essentially a storage 'array'. The thing with a storage array is that it really shouldn't be organized because you don't organize an 'arra...

Re: Resource Sinks

Another 'resource' sink could come in the form of creature attacks. Now that we are going to have blueprints, and we already have 'structure reconstruction' through roboports we could have structured and organised attacks from the biters that instead of destroying everything until your factory is no...

[0.8.8] Bug or 'feature'?

There is an issue I seem to be having on one of my saves and I've had it before on various saves but it isn't reproducable from what I can tell. It just seems to happen randomly. Groups of biters will just come out of what seems like nowhere and start attacking very specific targets inside my factor...

in first no pollution with robo mine (just a way to make furnace no pollution and we can do a factory which does not attract aliens) That's not actually a good thing. There should be the ability to minimize pollution (Which there already is) but not negate it entirely. If you use effectivity module...

Re: Resource Sinks

This is a 'problem' attributed to pretty much any game where you have 'resources'. Especially in games where your capacity to gain resources increases. Now naturally this is offset by resource sinks and dumps. A sink being an investment and a dump being something to essentially dump resources into. ...

Re: Alien science pack y do we ned them?!

Well think about what the science packs do. Where they are placed. You are placing them in a 'research' facility. Which one would assume is... well researching based off chemicals. It stands to reason that to advance higher and higher you need to research biological chemicals from the aliens. I mean...

Re: Logistics storage fixes

I honestly think it is fine as it is. I mean it could use some additional 'options' perhaps. But as far as I know this can be achieved through filter inserters and circuit networks. So I would say it isn't broken don't 'fix' it. I know it doesn't work the way a lot of people would like, but that doe...

Re: Water - how does it actually work?

What we have now is essentially a form of placeholder. Just to make everything work. are they planning to make water a limited resource? (currently unlimited) As of yet I don't believe so. At least I haven't heard any mention of it. Maybe in the long-term future they might, but that would be comple...

Re: "Hand Made"

Random thought... Given default difficuly settings for everything (ore size, etc) in freeplay. Do you think it possible to complete the game only crafting items "by hand"? I.e. no assembling machines (things like furances and power generation devices will still be required.) I know it will take for...

Construction timers/Hand Crafting

I don't know how possible this would be, but when you mouseover recipes in the crafting menu it gives you a 'time' unit that I've asked about on another thread that was changed to be uniform in seconds recently (Thanks for that btw).

Interesting ideas certainly. However I think that you're essentially talking about creating robotic automation for all the things you don't want to engage in. As awesome as the automation in this game is, it already has the 'issue' where once you get things setup you aren't really playing the game s...
