Yeah, sure games make more people believe that the design is nothing specific to Duracell, but that does not mean somebody will eventually be able to produce real clones just because they are in games. I never thought law takes games that seriously.


Actual trials are very expensive and unpredictable for companies. It is very understandable that Duracell is careful and ask Factorio to stop to use icon too near their trademark and Factorio is careful and change the icon. It costs less than an hour of work for both companies and everyone are on the safe side after that. There is no real reason to even begin thinking is it absolutely necessary or what are consequences if they do not change it. Consulting lawyers and further negotiations would cost several orders of magnitude more.

Looks less like an alkaline battery and more like a module drinking mug.

oh shit, now it means I have to release a patch updating my own icons to match.

Can someone please notify me when this happens? Where should I sign up for a notification?

Since I already change the colour of the old battery so many people love in my bobplates mod to make the silver oxide, and lithium ion batteries, I'm thinking I'll re-colour the original yet again (to remove the copper top) and release it as an override colour.

Alternatively I might dive back into 0.9 and re-use the old battery from there.

Either way, Yellow, Red, Blue it is! (Belt colours for 3 tiers) or maybe Red, Blue, Purple, because the MK1 battery is already a Tier 2/3 item.

definetly not green, that might suggest GP, which is trash, when it comes to batteries.

Perhaps change the shape to that of a car battery?
