That build was .... amazing, someone has sooo much time on their hands. That should be linked on the steam page as it is actually a great "things you can do with factorio" type of thing. It will bring in other buyers.

*picks jaw up off floor*. Wow... That build and the work that went into making it and the video is amazing! I didn't even the nk it was Factorio for the few seconds until I looked closer. Major props to whoever that. :D

Wish you guys all the best for 2016 and I will think the Steam Release will be a huge success. Very much look forward to the future of the game!
Happy New Year to everyone else as well!

The Wizard Winter video only works in the Windows/web version of Youtube, not in the Youtube app on iOS. Something to do with rights, obviously, although compared to 2-3 years ago, nowadays it seems very very rare to encounter a video that's blocked on one of the two youtubes but not the other.

It is really impressive, though.

Happy new year :)


One remark that put the sentence in a different meaning: One unfortunate news regarding the Steam release is that our marketing and community specialist Betka, is now longer working with us.

Now should be No. It sounds that you are unhappy that she is working for an extended period for you ;)

Good luck with Steam! I think Factorio will see a lovely spike in interest once it hits.

I for one can't wait for 0.13, so I'm glad to hear folks got home safely from vacation.

One unfortunate news regarding the Steam release is that our marketing and community specialist Betka, is now longer working with us. At the moment we are looking for a replacement. However this probably means that we will have to do the Steam promotion for the game (namely contacting youtubers / bloggers / etc.) ourselves. In this regard we really count on the community to help us actively spread the word before the and during the Steam release.
You should do setting resolution in menu if you want sell greater amount our product, do not forget many people has weak laptop, and the game start up maximum resolution.
I have some experience in this topic, change resolution set in desktop settings It is very uncomfortable, I had to change a laptop, but for many people the game becomes unplayable by this,
and finish adventure with factory on demo

I can't stop wondering what happened to betka. It's probably private stuff, but to leave a project right before the moment your expertise will be needed most of all, seems quite douchebachy. To relate i'm an accountant, and leaving in september, with october being a deadline for several things would leave my office in a lot of trouble.

Not alone that but even if she wouldn't continue with you, it would still be a nice visit card to her for her resume, if she worked one month longer. While now she can't claim anything. I hope you find a replacement soon, and i really hope someone from the community will stand up and take it on them to continue in this crucial period.

Anyways. Happy new year and don't forget 0.13 =)

Please, I'm curious, should it be 'no longer' instead of 'now longer'?
I wrote this kind of stuff in another FFF and somebdy said it was older version word that is not used anymore. Is this the same thing? English is not my first language but I would like to know it so please answer me if I'm wrong or if there is mistake in these FFF, thank you.

The Old English word "knowt" means "naught" or "nothing". The modern phrase you needed was "no longer". To say something is "now longer" is to say that it was shorter and changed its length, while to say something is "no longer" is to say that it was doing something and now is not (being present, doing some kind of work, and so on). Perhaps you meant "now no longer", adding emphasis to Betka not being present.

You can play the game in windowed mode instead of fullscreen. Then you can resize the window to any size you want, which also changes the resolution.
