One word at that image: joygasm.

Cue discussion on what is being fed into the silo from the left side...

Wow, guys. I've never been more excited at this game.

Is showing less lines between the roboports still in the works? I remember you talking about it. So that stuff like this doesn't happen: https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =40#p60051

I see 3 different chemical plants and advanced circuits being loaded in.. possibly each type of solid fuel (light, heavy, petro) or as pbhead said rocket fuel since only one of them is active its possible all three are running the same set-up

When can we test out the high res textures you wrote about in the "Friday Facts #64" post?

Also I am curious when you are going to rework the GUI.
I am Nic and I love to play games - the more unique the game concept is, the more I am up to buy a game and support the developers with my ideas.
If you want to watch my gameplay videos you do find them on YouTube: http://fwd.nicmd.de/ytng

Well, if I remember right, they did say that building a ship and leaving is still not the final version of the endgame and it does beat the gray rectangle that starts a countdown that we have now.

The shadow (and the promise from devs not to make rectangular things anymore after the gun turret mess) says this thing is 9x9 fields large.
However the silo buildings at the north side are so tall the overwrite nearly 1,5 fields north of the silo.
So either this is a really nice mockup or "properisch" 3D buildings which can overlap are coming (and hiding everything behind it)

The design also promises enduring sunshine and mild temperatures, otherwise rainwater will accumulate in the opening hatch, that silo drowns and the firecrackers get wet :D

Got me excited anyway! :o

Make sure not to fall into the trap of feature creep.

The silo size is 9x11

* EDIT: size is 9x9 or 9x11 if the shadow is 1 or 2 squares as noted by others.
