Ooooooooooh! The Portals are great!!!
It would be great if Factorio had transporter units built-in. When you do an extreme rail world, it's no fun to literally have to run a few minutes from place to place. In fact, I would have preferred it if you could just have a RTS style commander overview (so, without the astronaut guy having to walk around).

A few minutes? Wait till a rocket fueled pocket locomotive takes 15min to get back to base.

You do realize that you can do quite a lot stuff from map now in areas where you have radar coverage?
It's a recent feature - from 0.15 I think.

Really?!? I have radars everywhere (perfectly aligned of course). You want to tell me I can do everything (a lot of things at least) from the map view? So, I can open a chest to pick up something when I'm far away?

I'll try that the next time I'm playing. That would be utterly fantastic!

When 0.15 first released I played multiplayer with a version of longreach that let me do that. (Not sure what mod actual mod that was now, there are several that provide long reach like functionality. And it might have been changed by now. It was overpowered.

You can't do anything that takes your inventory or action, so opening a chest is not possible, but you can hover over it and see the contents.
You can place blueprints and ghosts, and those can be built by nearby robots if they have the inventory.

For a commercial 1.0 release, you might want to release for holiday (2018-2020 somewhere around there :D ).
For a full commercial release, the holiday period is critical for sales and january/february release would be commercial suicide.


For a major patch like this however, I think early 2018 makes more sense so you don't need to spend the whole holidays/new year either patching or sitting on a bunch of bugs. Instead you get to keep a few days off, even if sitting on a release candidate, then roll on the patch sometime january/february/ fully refreshed and ready for bug squashing with full force.

Except that's what every other indy studio thinks, so they avoid releasing during holidays to avoid being buried in the flood.

Like most early-access games, I don't think it matters that much. I wouldn't expect much rise in sales from the official release.
Effectively 1.0 is just another big patch for an early access game...

I would expect a rise in sales the 2 weeks before 1.0 since prices tend to go up with official release. I usually buy early-access games 1-2 months before release...

And since it is already better than a majority of games already released (from a bug/feature perspective) you can already buy/gift it.
I already gifted it 3 times.

I don't see much difference in gifting something which will be released but is already playable and gifting something which is released.

But maybe thats only me...

Same here - it's better than many finished games, but I know some people wait until games get released to buy it. I'm guessing less so for Factorio than some less feature-complete or buggier games, but there might still be some. I wouldn't expect a huge spike in sales, but there might be some.

Well reviewers normally wait till release before they review a game. Some good reviews could get the game noticed by people who haven't already seen it.

Yeah, but the early-access reviews stop at the same time.

Also: The best review for Factorio is the percentage of thumbs up on Steam.
I and my friends have never seen anything alike (It was 98 or 99% positive when i bought it out of over 100k) - especially with a special interest kind of game.

And it totally deserves that rating. At the moment (and it has been for quite some time) it's #2 on Steam.

Actually if you ever read the negative ratings they are mostly jokes/minor discomforts that has been overcome like no endgame, no achievements or that the game is addictive as crack.

Yeah - they're pretty amusing. There are actually few enough that I could probably pretty easily go and classify them all as either obselete, too addictive, lack of endgame, joke, or other.
