Re: Combat system far too fast?

Dont forget - this game is called Factorio for a reason. I think the main idea of the game is that you start small and weak and build up from nothing, at the expense of natural wildlife :P As such it makes sense to make main character weak - his defence, and offence would come from what he makes, no...

Re: improved minimap/bigmap

Would be also beneficial to change into map mode in editor when you zoom out too much: I have a decent computer and it stutters when i zoom way too much.

Re: Help me get back to this game !

I decided to simply make new module - got wires and circuits closer together so that red inserters would deposit wire right into circuit assembler, which will then output circuits onto the belt. i've decided to use belts so that i can see exactly when and where bottlenecks happen, moreover as I slow...

Re: Combat system far too fast?

Player speed is indeed slowest possible atm: while it is decent at the early game, working at end game complexes is hard enough - heck i made empty belt highways specifically so I could walk faster within my base. Making it slower would cripple end game experience. Making monsters slower than player...

Re: Help me get back to this game !

I am currently polishing this design: http://i.imgur.com/ZxV84I6.jpg?1 It is quite compact (i don't have space to place lamps, need tunnels to place posts) and yields a multiple belt output on the opposite end. - atm the south part can only work with 1-2 resources at once, haven't come up with decen...

Re: better Electric Network management

I have no idea how hard it would be to code that in. How about energy inserter that could transfer energy between capacitors. I think that would be easier to implement and use.

Re: New pollution mechanic

Ah sorry didn't know destruction of chests was possible. I've personally only deconstructed them before. I think realistically would be much better to simply drop them on the ground in form of waste ore - static object with appropriate amount. The kicker is - ore will not decompose by itself and wil...

New pollution mechanic

Sorry for posting my fist post in suggestions, but this was one of the reasons why I've registered in the first place so consider this as my way of saying "Hello!" While current pollution is quite good - it is too ambiguous to be used everywhere. As such I want to suggest keeping it as &qu...
