Science pack 3 should come out in batch of 2

Post by Makosi » Sat Jan 05, 2019 1:29 pm

Hello all,

Factorio is a great game but the Science pack 3 (blue one) is either too expensive or if price is fine it should come in batch of 2 to balance the high costs.

Yes, 0.17 is coming out soon™ which includes these changed. The Devs did previously state that it would be January, then that it won't be January.
I'd say late february, they're trying to finish off a few features that they're currently working on, including the GUI and Pipe overhaul, and until those are ready 0.17 can't be released.

So im playing this in 2019 and blue potions are still too expensive. 1 Engine, 1 electric miner and 1 red circuit for 1 blue science pack is too expensive. When will this be re balanced?

Like, weeks and months ago. That's not the recipe in 0.17. You must still be on the 0.16 stable branch.

It's cool though, googled how to do it and am now updating to experimental 17.40 version.

For others who wonder how to do it, here is a nice video:

Glad you got it working. Who would've thought they changed the menu ;). And you didn't say anything about steam...
