Re: Game for geeks?

What does it even mean to be a geek these days? Educated? Comfortable with technology? Enjoys Star Trek? Most 12-year-olds fit into that category nowadays.

Re: Need People To Play

I've got about 30 hours into single player but want to try MP - if either the OP or anyone else wants to make a Hamachi server or join a dedicated server, please post or message me.

Also, my Steam name is the same as my forum name here, add me as a Friend. :)

*contented sigh*

The discussions on this board are quite a bit different than the usual fare over on the Steam Discussion boards. *wipes tear*

Re: Just bought the game; What were Your first impressions?

I watched an hour of gameplay video... I did have to watch an other video on how to figure out trains... watched video for power armour... watched video for blueprints... Yah this was my approach too. Tech up 'til you hit an unfamiliar tech - Pause game - Watch Youtube vid - return to game. Rinse a...

Re: Resource "outposts" or "ALL YOUR LAND R BELONG TO US"?

NotABiter is talking logarithmic functions to somebody who just learned how to add and subtract - and I love it because it makes me realize that I've only just scratched the surface of this amazing game. :)

Fascinating stuff guys, thanks for all the input.

Re: Suggestion for Steam users

Adding an IMPORTANT note here - if you launch the game through Steam be aware there is a potential problem that many other Steam games encounter - when you Shift-Tab to bring up the Steam overlay, then go back to the game, the game may think you still have Shift depressed. This will lead to clicks a...

Re: Footbridges?

Thinking it might also be useful to just have a way to block off portions of the base to be used for foot travel only. If the "footbridges" could work over land too, you could make lanes for quickly getting around without having to dodge machinery 'n such.

Re: Resource "outposts" or "ALL YOUR LAND R BELONG TO US"?

Yah I just recently discovered you could make the walls double-thickness. Not only tougher - looks cooler too! :D

I'll have to try triple-thick for the points of most frequent attack.

Re: Resource "outposts" or "ALL YOUR LAND R BELONG TO US"?

Thanks for the input - do I have to worry about them attacking stuff like undefended power poles, belts and tracks or will they only go after the machinery at the outpost?

Resource "outposts" or "ALL YOUR LAND R BELONG TO US"?

My initial supply of coal is running low, starting to think about hooking up a new source but wondering which experienced players find more effective - should I make a walled, defended "outpost" at the new source or should I try to clear and control all the intervening territory and wall i...

Yes I have a save - how do I get it to you (or whomever)?

(posting from work right now, will get the save out this weekend)

Burner Drill on coal - 4 coals burnt for every coal mined

I opted into experimental branch and found that burner miners on coal were burning thru fuel at a crazy rate, like 4-5 coals burned for every coal mined. I opted out of experimental and the problem persists. Burner miners on other minerals do not do this, only the ones on coal.

Re: I must be blind or stupid...Gates?

HA! Another useful Wiki entry - I was wondering when you'd want to use Solid Fuel vs. coal - was so happy when I found this: "When to use solid fuel..."

Not so happy with the rest:
"...Actually hard to say and depends much on the map."

Gee thanks Wiki. :roll:

I actually forgot to launch thru Steam last night, then remembered and logged off then back in thru Steam - not 15 minutes later somebody dropped in to watch me play. :P

Yah thank you - I used Evolve for a different game and found it much more complicated than I need personally. Don't need VOIP, don't need matchmaking, don't need a chat room - that's why I'm on Steam - just connect me already. :roll: Hamachi's more my speed, simple & effective. But I imagine tha...

Re: I must be blind or stupid...Gates?

Okay thanks for the help everyone - I opted into the experimental branch last night and found my Gates. And just to note - I always check the wiki first and it has been helpful on a couple of issues but TBH it's not as user-friendly as I would like. Usually I'm hoping for a more "Factorio for D...

I must be blind or stupid...Gates?

I've seen people using Gates in their Walls in multiple Youtube vids - for some reason I can't find/research/unlock them? Experimental branch maybe (if there is such a thing)? Edit: another question if you don't mind - can you play co-op on the Demo? I'm trying to get my friend to buy this, he has t...
