In the Gameplay Trailer there is building of a railroad like in future 0.13, but know game is 0.12.24.

What will you, Devs, do, if there will be questions from gamers: WHY railroads are builds not like in Gameplay Trailer?!

So, what about railroad building?

I think it's obvious - they used a WIP 0.13 version to record the trailer. It's not in 0.12 because 0.12 didn't ship with that feature.

I just noticed that there is a price inconsistency between Steam / Factorio page (20€) and the Humble Store (19,99€). Is there any reason for it?
In general i think it would be better to change the price on Steam to 19,99€ because of the psychological effect which makes it look cheaper :D

I don't remember seeing such a good user review score on Steam, whatever the game.

I don't like Steam, so I don't really care - but other people like it, so I think it's a good thing for Factorio. :)
Greetings, Nova.
Factorio is one of the greatest games I ever played, with one of the best developers I ever heard of.

I KNOW this. I mean - if I met a game just now (through Steam), I would be surprised that I have in the game the construction of the railway is not made the way in the trailer.
When and where developers said that "Dear new gamers, not everything you see in the Gameplay Trailer, available to you now. Some things will be available in later versions"?

It is not a claim from me :) . If it's "conceived plan" - OK. I just don't want some new players think that developers cheated them.

It's a wonder how good the game is, if you consider how bad they are with the FFF numbers :mrgreen:

It's one thing to get a new customer from the Steam launch. But getting a professional lurker to comment publicly? Wow.
Ahah ^^ Yes, it shows how much this launch is an event ;)
Yeah, I'm hardly active on the web, and especially during lasts months (hum, last year ?)... But with this FFF, I really wanted to show again my support to the team, because I really love their work and spirit :)

Congrats on the steam release and the phenomenal user score!
I just wondered, is the enhanced resolution pack from fff#64 still a thing? :)

I know I'm way late, but congrats on all accounts guys! :D
It's so nice to see the game doing so well and the massive amount of positive reviews already. This is just the beginning, I think there will be another spike once some sites and YouTubers start doing reviews on the game, etc. I am very excited to see what the next week or two brings.
As Root said with 0.13 on the horizon I think it will go well with this release to really show all the new players that you guys will keep developing the game and how high quality the updates are. :)

Also, congrats on the personal events with the new members coming into the family! Very happy time. :D

Over 15000 reviews and still only 7 negative. Yes, okay, much of the reviews are from people who already bought the game before the Steam launch, but it's still amazingly positive.
The website for the factorio guide needs some more work. Doesn't look really nice in the moment, but I think you already know that. :)

Well done guys. 2 licenses bought, one for me and one for my 12yrs old son who pointed me at your game. We had really funny weekend playing together together as LAN multiplayer, just like in my young ages.
Game is enjoyable, challenging, addictive and forces you use brain - not too common in recent days. Some parts (gui mainly) could use some polishment, but not a single real game-breaking bug in Alpha stage? Wonderfull and pretty uncommon.
Thank you and keep up your good work.

Sorry for my English, i am not native speaker :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Velmi dobrá práce hoši. V sobotu zakoupena jedna licence pro syna, v neděli druhá pro mne, hrajeme LAN Coop (jako za mých mladých let).
Hra má nějaké mušky (hlavně v ovládání a GUI by zasloužilo vylepšit), ale je návyková a zábavná.
Konečně navíc něco, kde nastavení nejvyšší obtížnosti je vážně docela výzva :).
Díky a rád jsem vás aspoň malým nákupem podpořil.

So, wait, do you consider 0.12.24 a stable build, as that's what it has downloaded and I haven't activated experimental builds in Steam yet?
