* as per the dev's slideshow and what the team's answers were compared to

[Footnote 1] Apparently it is possible to get all the achievements in one run, but the correct answer as seen from the dev's view is B) 2.

[Footnote 2] This question was in error, the actual question was how large the roboport logistic area is. This was made clear to the teams as soon as the question was presented.


___________

After the quiz resulted in 4 teams each getting 18 points it came down to one last question, the teams had 60 seconds to write down their answer:
How many iron plates does one rocket part take?

The teams gave these answers: A) 885 B) 800 C) 750 D) 11000
Correct answer: 891

Team SteelAxe (answer A above) was closest and won the quiz.

I did not know this! I thought it was a bug that'd be hard to solve, and so it was just left unsolved, because who cares really ("it's not a bug it's a feature"). But you made it make sense by changing name -- I assume to something like "groundwater pump". I can imagine how that went:

> Joe how do we solve this bug that the offshore pump still works when you landfill over it?
> idk just call it a groundwater pump?

:lol:

On a more serious note, how does one get all achievements in one run? Does anyone have a link to an explanation?

The achievements like "no solar" etc can be completed with the rocket launch. After that you can get the "solaris" achievement without invalidating the no solar one. You can see it in action here: https://www.speedrun.com/Factorio#100
