yes, but i want to sit on top of it :D
Yeah. I was thinking about the iconic image of the player character riding on a factorio rocket, and thinking it would be cool to ride on spidertron.

I also thought it would be cool to teach spidertron to mount and ride on top of a locomotive/cargo wagon, so i don't need to pick it up if I want to travel a long distance.

Just out of curiosity, does biter creep permanently change the landscape? Do the associated decoratives ever fade? Does it permanently change the tiles for some parts of the landscape?

You can remove it with nukes and cover it with tiles.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thank you for all your hard work. Countless others and I simply love this game that your company has made. It reminds me a lot of playing games like The Incredible Machine a lot when I was a kid on the PC. I think games like this that inspire creativity really are something special - and that this game will go on to be a classic for many years to come. Cheers!

Please remove Spidertron. It brings nothing new to the game and only clutters the game with junk.

Good joke, if its one. Otherwise, just ignore it.

It's not a joke. Tell me how adding a spidertron to the game has any relevance to automation? Tell me how it's relevant to a factory? I'll wait. Well what I do is make one then let spitters and biters destroy it over and over.

I don't know, people just like it. If you don't like, then try to ignore it, because it won't be removed (at least, i can't imagine ;)). I mean, you can open a thread in Ideas and suggestions....

Trolling?

But trying, to give an answer: how relevant are the power armor and personal roboports to automation? Maybe as relevant as a late-game vehicle with effective squeak through and remote builder (considering the likely logistic slots for 1.1) is.
With your line of argumentation, how relevant is any vehicle or personal item? Should they all be removed?
Or, if such strong animosities exist, trying out sandbox mode might be something for you.

Furthermore, if you despise Spidertron that much, why build it at all? Some features aren’t used universally in the game.
I don't like too bot heavy builds, others do. Mostly inexperienced players shy away from complex train networks, other even more advanced players don't use complex circuit builds that often. Some other features are even used rather seldomly (e.g. Coal liquefaction).
Ergo just disliking a feature is not a valid argument.

Congrats to the team in the release!

I had 25 hours logged on Factorio from a few years ago when I decided to leave the game alone until 1.0.0, and here it is! There aren’t many games that I’ve played where you look at the time and an hour passed in what seemed like minutes. :!:

Glad to have been apart of seeing this game grow. Good stuff guys. You've come so far, and now its finally over. Good stuff. Thank god for legacy support enabling mods with authentication on factorio.com and for those who want to authenticate on their own drm builds and what not. Good job!

It's adds as much to automation as construction bots do. And as much as the tank / car do. And also as personal items do.

If you build just that tron it's an other type of vehicle. Nothing to do with automation, but a big benefit when it comes to traveling trough your map to AUTOMATE something.

If you add "personal items" like roboports to that tron, it could help do things faster or better, because it extends the available slots for robots. (What literally mean, to better AUTOMATE building by bots and blueprints.)

If you may also use a remote-control it can help to AUTOMATICALLY build things per blueprint and bots just far away of your bot network and far away from position of your character.

Also you can use it as an mobile turret just to AUTOMATICALLY destroy your enemy.

For me, it is enough benefit to AUTOMATION.

It's even more impressive that they were able to animate N-legged spiders! Check out the Spidertron Tiers mod.

I am looking for information on when to expect the next release.

First of all, congratulations on the 1.0.0 release! I am very excited to play around in this game now that it has achieved such a great milestone after building up for so long! I love it, and I think that the developers deserve a great celebration.

That said, I am eagerly awaiting the resolution of some bugs that have been identified and are listed in the "Bug Reports > Resolved for the next release" section, and as I am new to the forums and to the community, I am not sure what to expect in terms of the timeframe or where exactly to look for the information of when future releases are expected. I am also not sure if this was the right place to post this question, so please feel free to correct me.

As a software developer myself, I understand that one cannot always give definite dates for things like these, but without seeming impatient, I would like to get some sort of idea of how frequently I should check back and where I should look to stay apprised of such updates so that I can get the next release as soon as it is ready.

Thanks again!

Thanks, Koub! That was just what I needed! I have signed up for the newsletter with my new Factorio account. :D
