I keep checking Steam, and keep seeing no new Download information.

It's Wednesday in Australia already. :) But no 0.16 yet -- they usually release on Monday/Tuesday so this is a bit enervating (as in, I am too weary to continue with my existing 0.15 game because I'm excited about 0.16 being just hours (days?) away.)

This is not a begging post, or a plea for early release. It is observational only, and not intended to be taken as any kind of criticism.

I'd say we'll technically get it the day later, like most other releases.

Wow! The time difference is much larger than I thought. It is still Monday in Texas!!

Seriously though, I wouldn’t expect to see a release until end of day Friday in Prague which I assume would be noon or later Saturday in various parts of Australia?

4:50 Wednesday afternoon here (in Australia).

Edit: And I'm pretty sure you have your days messed up. It should be tuesday in Texas.

Here in the US, we sometimes consider Texas a separate country of their own... I guess the people there are in their own world. :P

I would put my completely random guess on a Thursday release... Of course, without mentioning a Time Zone, that is a 48 hour window to have it be Thursday somewhere. 8-)

But... I'm a developer myself... I'm more interested in the quality of the release than any specific date... release it when you are ready, that is most important. Even if it isn't this week. Wube's track record with quality releases is quite impressive... I know I don't need to say anything at all and they will do a great job anyway.

Its been some time since i've had time to play factorio. But coming back, my god yes, im excited!

As for ordering of the shirts limited to 3... lol at best i'd order is 5. one for each working day, otherwise i dont see any issue on limiting it. Its a great idea to restrict them stupid scalpers (hate them soooooooooooooooooooo much)

0.16.0 is out?!?!? OMG you kidding me? How did I manage to miss this?

You guys are the best, this is exactly what I needed now after being bummed about finishing Darkest Dungeon and not having a Great Addiction on anything particular any more :)

The 0.16 auto-update crashes on the Mac under High Sierra. Installing the DMG from the Factorio download page works flawless

can i suggest a turret wagon aswell maby with normal bullets
or maby a laser wagon to protect the train from close combat ? ( read next part )

I don't know how far the artilety wagon is... but if 17.5 chunks is the max range ...
is there a minimum or can it shoot bitters, I mean if the barrel is 10 meters long... can it shoot bitters 5 meters away also ?
The artillery wagon was not designed to be used against biters. It was designed to be used against biter bases, destroying the spawners. You'd still need your Power Armor mk2 with Cluster Grenades and Destroyer Robots to fend off the hordes of biters.

From the looks of it, the artillery wagon reload is too slow to be effective against biters. And I'd guess that if you targeted a spot 5 meters away, you'd get caught in the explosion (similar to dropping a grenade on your foot)

ok... I'm a little late and all t-shirts are gone... and I expect even an hour would have been too late, not a week...

However, I have yet not searched the forums, just wanted to also add that I want a t-shirt so keep making them. If they sold out, that means there is demand... so bring us more!
