Informative.

Also, Hunh. Is that a large pump then?

Because you have all these models, how difficult is it to make things like the shot in the main menu? I'd love to see more of those!

Even the Sketches are better than what i can Draw. xD
but it is your Job, so being an Designer with no Drawing Skills would be kinda Counterproductive... like a Negative Productivity Module or something.

That pump is clearly going to be for loading the rail tanker car...love the concept art so far, great idea to have it so the pipes visibly extend to connect with the wagon.

I'd like to have all Factorio posts that deal with processing steps be done in this style. Because it's awesome!

lol I just spent almost 20 minutes waiting for the images to load on my crappy mobile internet connection. It was definitely worth it tho :D
I really wish we could get to see all the concept art for factorio - there's just something cool about raw sketches like that ;)

Can we get blend files? If so how about using the community to integrate into some steps of this workflow?
I would love to help with modeling and concepts for instance!

slacking? - not at all - I have sent a box of finest 2011 Merlot over to Prag to enhance development.
The parcel arrived only Friday evening for testing over the weekend in Praha
So expect some delays in updates for Factorio as well as reduced postings from the developers in the upcoming days:-)
I encourage everyone to follow my example...

This is super cool and interesting! Is there any chance you guys can stream/record some of the process like the guys working on Parkitect do? I'd totally spend some hours watching that. :) :) :geek:

PS. I still haven't played .13 cause my laptops in the shop getting the screen fixed. I was so hyped for the update and the universe went "Nope, sorry!" three days before release. :evil: :evil: :evil:
