I Don't Even Know????

Post by chandonesia21 »

This is such a weird thing to post about but I just want to know what the heck is going on here? My lab and radar in game have a little extra text at the end of both. My lab says Lab TimoPlaysHD and my radar says Radar Bamm Bamm Rubble. What the heck? One of those people is a youtuber after a quick google search and he doesn't even play factorio and the other is a character from the flinstones? How did these random names end up on my items?

Before factorio launched on steam, you could pay $15 extra and have your name (or arbitrary garbage you put in the form) appear in the game. They're still shown on some things like radars, labs, trains.

Interesting. So other players labs, radars, trains, etc. have names at the end of them also? Will they ever be removed from game?

Hope not :) It's a small testimony of the people who had enough faith in the project to back it early in its development, like having your name in the credits (but a lot better imho :)).
