[1.0.0] Marked 'alpha' release

We are aware of them, but they have low priority. We have more important things to do. They go here in order not to take space in the main bug thread list.

[1.0.0] Marked 'alpha' release

Post by NIronwolf »

The About box in a stand-alone install still lists the Release as an 'alpha'.

Literally unplayable as a final release version. :D

In this context "alpha" means something like "standalone". For me, this text says "steam" since I installed Factorio via Steam. In the past, it was mentioned somewhere that they did not want to change this because it would break many automatic update scripts. Or something in that spirit.

There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

Oops, sorry. I tried searching for a few things, but alpha returned most of the forum. :(
