Also - what's "Twinsen's pipe dream"? :)
don't you dare assuming his sexual orientation based on this information
Nothing like that even crossed my mind. My guess is it is some huge oil processing plant and I was just wondering about the layout since the name is quite promising. Making most efficiently packed oil setups is one of my favorite challenges.

Loaders. They've been scrapped (or postponed?) in favor of stack inserters and stack bonuses.

Keep up the good work.

p.s. if you wanna break the game, let Colonelwill and Xterminator play it and give them a week.
Yeah, aren't we (the community) supposed to be the beta testers?
Interesting tests and marathon stuff I suppose. Unfortunately no amount of awesome Easter food can remedy this level of disappointment. :cry:

What will happen with the "finish game in <X hours" achievements in 0.15?

I thought it was awesome, but I couldn't watch it all day. I nearly had a seizure the first time.

I refreshed a few times.

It feels strange to wait one post for five days after reading slowly through every older Factorio news. Like time has slowed down a lot.

I am also waiting to hear/see/read more, and of course to test the upcoming changes!

Just bear with us for a very short while please, we are doing literally everything we can to make it happen as soon as possible.

I'm not going to cry about how much time we spend, how much effort we put, how close it can get to taxing on both mental and physical health and whatever. We took a big bit of a release to chew this time on, but when you get it, I believe you will trust me that the wait was worth it.

We can already see the light at the end of the LONG tunnel, and the light is very bright. : )

Thank you

It is the tunnel that the hype train emerges from when the release comes.

A train comes loaded...

With nuclear reactors and oil wagons. :D

Let us in the tunnel
We know it's experimental and can collapse

I suspect that that would be a lethal tunnel. Aside from being too small, there is a light at the end of it.

I appreciate all the effort but please tell us it's releasing Monday or Tuesday next week.

Don't make us wait another week.

I can wait if you feel you need the time, but it sounded like everything was going well and you guys already had almost a week to test it two Friday facts ago. If things continued as indicated 2 Friday facts ago, then you have had about 1.8 weeks to test it. We haven't heard anything this Friday facts about any issues, so we assume all is well. You told us before that you wanted 1 week to test it, which it sounds like you have had lol. Get it into our hands to play with :).

Seriously though, I appreciate all the effort, but don't work crazy hours just to get it done faster. Do all you can, but don't risk your health.

That being said, this coming Monday or Tuesday would be great for a release. Really excited ;)

Pra(i)se the sun!


Can you release an experimental 0.15 version, for the impatient ones?

I've still not given up finishing my SpaceX game before 0.15, it's gonna be a photo finish...
