Its here! And somehow, I played the game today, yesterday, month ago.... year ago.... it always was here ;)

Somehow you managed to find bugs... I remember only one bug over the whole time that really screwed my game, it was about train signals afair.
What I want for 1.1 or 1.1+? Train bridges. Seriously, this is only one thing I want for Factorio to be 100% complete.

Long road. Great job. I'm still over here waiting for Steam to get its act together and let me download the update, but I get it, you put that third party in the middle and things take extra time for no good reason. (EDIT: Just came through.)

Small price to pay so I can play with my Steam controller tho.

2020 keeps on giving.. No more FFF.... RIP. I'm legit saddened as it was the one piece of good news I enjoyed reading every week.

I understand why especially when there isnt much in the way of shiny new things. I wonder if once a fortnight would be doable?

Happy that 1.0 is here - and while I will miss the insites and updates on a weekly basis, I cant wait to see what is next for Wube.

Congrates all on 1.0 and I look forward to future updates.

Crazy to imagine how long this has been part of my life; for over 6 years I read the Friday Facts almost always the same day it was published. So often they were great and insightful reads or gave something new to learn about game design and software development, etc. Thank you for the journey!

Remembering how much I loved the prototype of the spidertron when it was first teased years ago - I love seeing it making it into the game now! As soon as my schedule allows, I'm in for a new run of the game. :)

Holy shit, they implemented the spidertron. Back in my mind I was hoping and praying for it to be implemented and it finally happend! So hyped.

Big congratulations for releasing 1.0. This is a really big milestone for all of us =)

And thanks for the over thousand hours of game play (and more to come),
incorporating the community feedback , the mod support and keeping us

Goodbye FFF :'( It's been a very long time since I last played (think pre-0.15), but it's become a weekly routine to read the Friday Facts. I've loved hearing about how you've implemented so many of your amazing features - things we needed but didn't even know we wanted!

It's an end of an era, but maybe - just maybe - I might allow myself to open Factorio up for a quick game (haha, that's a joke - we both know it'll be days before I look at the time).

Congratulations!
I started playing 6 years ago and it's still my favorite game! You did an unbelievably good Job with it.
I knew that there will be some kind of surprise in 1.0 but didn't hoped for the spidertron. I have to try it now :mrgreen:

Just for the record: I would be more than willing to buy a future expansion if you want to do that at some point :P
