Bad / Impossible Start

Post by Rokae »

So I decided to download 0.15.3 yesterday to try it out and I ended up starting on a tiny island. I just would like to suggest some kind of check to make sure that the start area is not a 6x3 island of nothing. I don't believe this is a bug with the 0.15.3 version but if it is never mind.

Factorio gave me a perfect spawn location (not)

Post by Nazair »

So I was trying to start new map with Train World default setting.
Have to admit game gave me the best map to survive any bitter attacks :P

Not really sure if it can be called a bug but for sure this kind of spawn location does not help :D

Is this a joke?

Yes, its a misspelling of biters, but still.

It refers to the enemies in the game. Spawners, biters, and spitters. They spawn when you pollute enough, and try to kill you and eat your stuff.

Bitters, along with Spiters, are your allies in the never-ending war with Biters and Spitters.

A shorthand for both biters and spitters. The B comes from the Biters, the tt from the spitters and the rest is what both have in common.

Lol, that's kinda funny, but I don't believe that is true.
Its just a mispelling of biters, from back before spitters existed. Instead of calling em buggers or aliens or natives or whatever, they were just called biters since there were biters, worms, and spawners, and only biters attacked. However, its easy to put 2 ts instead of 1, hence bitters.

Maybe some checks should be run when creating a map

... to avoid such embarrassing situation.

Odd start

Post by Maldor96 »

I started a fresh game and was welcomed by this: Me on an island. Not just a regular island, an island just my size :D
I restarted the game before having the presence of mind to save the map exchange string.
Which made me wonder: Who else has encountered this situation? Island with no resources, Walking an inordinate distance to find something?
Food for thought, but I thought everyone would enjoy a chuckle.

[0.15.x] stuck on an island

Post by benji_mines »

A pretty minor bug I guess, but a bug (?) still - started a new game only to find myself stuck on the tiniest island ever...
