Factorio reminds me of it often, but it is more focused on the energy network than on resource harvesting. Still the best minecraft mod IMO, especially in combination with BuildCraft.
Well...there's Mekanismm, Thermal Exchange, and EnderIO, which combined have more or less replaced what IC2 had. (of course, the last time I played minecraft it was on a poor old computer that noticeably struggled to run Tekkit or its single-player-only cousin Technic, and could juuuuust baaarely run the slightly less old Crash Landing modpack in stretches of about 30-60 minutes....so...take what I say with a whole salt shaker)

I made an account just to post in this thread since I found several good games from these recommendations.

These games are similar to factorio in only one regard: pathing. One of my favorite challenges in Factorio is making the conveyor belts connect efficiently for my usually haphazard assembler placements. These games take that idea and make a puzzle game using that underlying concept. They are free flash games that are 4-5 years old, but are timeless. The developer links to this website directly from his own site.

and it's just-as-good sequel

They start easy and ramp up in difficulty, but rarely are frustratingly hard.

Im surprised nobody mention Ai War:Fleet Command

Ok. Its not factorio. But its similiar in aspect of "grand campaign" - 50 hours easy (or a lot more) on single campaign. Also 2D game and also can kill your potato (thre are setting to make 2x or 4x less ships on screen but with 2x or 4x stats.
I got 1000+ hours into this masterpice. In some aspects a little bit better than factorio because its actually got an ending (victory after 80 hours+ its good feel). Then replay with different setting of map generation or many many other strange things.
Game is about war. AI kills almost all humans in universe and move its main computing to some unknown sectors to do some-important-nobody-knows-what.
You are commander of remain humans and you have plan to free this galaxy (your randomly or not randomly generated map). In order to do this you must kill its main star-teleport-gate without pissing ai to much (partisan style) or be destroyed by dominating forces of ai.

Like i said. Different game, but somehow similar.A lot of planning. All micro-management cant be skipped. Best RTS for single player ever created.

The only game coming close to Factorio is currently
https://dapperpenguinstudios.itch.io/rise-of-industry
http://www.riseofindustry.com
Early Alpha but promising.
Featured already by CoS
https://youtu.be/dvhbnH4vYbQ
Somehow feeling like Factorio for the poor even though it costs the same.
Not as deeply complex, far simpler in approaches and a few years behind Factorio but a graphical nice execution of a old and proven game concept.

Farlight Explorers
Just because it hasn't been mentioned recently.

But how is autonauts at all like minecraft? Is everything that has a square minecraft? Is chess minecraft?

Fortresscraft Evolved

open source .. Black Voxel It does also have belts and aseembly machines to make things.

I even remember back when minecraft was open source itself; but then I was like eww it's Castle Wolfenstiein.

Supreme Commander Forged Alliance

Even mentioned shortly, its a RTS with a huge scale. The game is still played by its community. And its a ton of a fun. It plays completely diffrent from games like Starcraft 2.

Here is a video showing a standart multiplayer game: (just look at the scale)
https://youtu.be/2jpZJQIDuAs?t=4m44s

Just for the scale:
Smallest Unit cost around 8 mass and has a size of 5m
Largest Unit cost around 300.000 mass and has a size of 500m

The ressources are infinite. Also, nearly 90% of every wreckage can be reclaimed/recycled. And in oposite to standart RTS it has a so called streaming economy. Normal RTS wants you to pay for a unit, when clicking build. Not this game, the game calculates a cost per time. For example if a unit cost 48 mass and takes 12 seconds to build, it will cost you 4 mass/second to build.

Some love for Autonauts?

Post by SaintFlow » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:22 pm

hi there!

first of all, I am not in any way affiliated with the Autonauts team, I just really like their project and I would be really sad if they would not be able to continue on with their development.

Some of you may already know the game, here is their kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14 ... /autonauts

It's similar to Factorio but also very, very different. There are way too few nice games on the market which cater to the factorio itch in my brain.

I would love to see some love for Autonauts from the Factorio community and most of all, from the Factorio devs. Maybe give them a shoutout on twitter or so? It's not often that a game is similar enough so the crowd who follows factorio might really like it, but I think this one might be exactly that.

So long,
SaintFlow

Why did you do that? The game has already been mentioned in here, it should have stayed like it is imo.
