Oh I see you got one, too! 8-)
Yea I usually refer to it as a "package" (since I also don't know the vocabulary, obviously, and that's the word Klonan used, too), and "parcel" only to switch the term so it sounds more professional. The most correct term would be "envelope", though. :geek:
As far as I can tell I failed at this.

EDIT: Oh and for the completeness... Here are my buttons:

Hmm...
Ich bin nein deuschland
(I have no German)
Wow, i'm bad.
Had lessons at school but hated them with all my heart.
Sorry for that, I just don't like the language.
It is probably because i'm British, you have to learn our language but we don't bother learning yours! :D

EDIT: Nice buttons! :)

Would it be possible to get STL files for some of the buildings, bots and aliens? With that one could 3D print them.

Depends on how large you scale it. At our local Fablab 3D printing costs 10c/g. My own printer is even cheaper. A 50mm high worm wouldn't weight too much.

A Factorio coffee mug would indeed be very nice.
But not a travel mug, I mean a normal mug.

I saw someone who created a puzzle out of a hi-rez Factorio screenshot. Thought that was pretty cool, and could also work as printed posters or on mugs (a mug of belts).

It just requires that you refresh, and completely disregard timezones. Other than that it works fine.
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

I just read, that you are going to expand your merch in future. A nice mug would be fantastic, but is also a delicate product. Then I saw these premium steel mugs, even with carabiners for the outdoor-fans.
What could fit better to Factorio?! :D

soo, this is just for design ideas for merch?

if that's the case than an idea for more T-shirts/Sweaters/whatever would be to have "simple" ingame designs.
example of a design (except more professional and prolly without a floor texture)
Image
Image
Red - Design itself
Green - Name (this case would be "Green Circuits" for example)
Blue - Factorio Logo


Alternative Idea, Ratios.

something like this, except... better done and with ingame sprites
Image

There are a lot of ideas for Merch. maybe it just takes too much time or is a low priority. but just having a single Deisgn doesn't seem right.

Factorio Merchandise

Post by adam_bise » Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:28 pm

Expand your store beyond T-shirts!

I would like a Factorio decal for my computer.

Perhaps a blue belt pin stripe, or just a big rusty cog!
