Sigh. I missed this post yesterday, it had already slipped down past the first page of active topics. I tried searching for Alt-F4 this morning; 2855 results for the word "Alt" - the F4 was ignored :roll: I went to my search page (DuckDuckGo not Google), and it didn't make it to the top of the page there either. It did get me to #13, which brought me the General Discussion board, where this current post showed up - but this was by luck, not by design, and Luck is Not a Robust Control. I tried searching for FFFF but the only search results there were for hex codes. Any suggestions for a better/quicker/easier way to follow Alt-F4 here on the forums would be much appreciated!

Anyway, thank you for another fascinating issue, I haven't played Space Exploration but this really made me want to give it a try.

Best thing I can think of is go to alt-f4.blog and clicking the forum link at the bottom of the post.
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

try adding factorio to your search.... you have to narrow the field first.

It's not rocket science.... well technically space exploration does count I guess

The latest Alt-F4 (just like with the old FFFs) has a pinned/stickied post in the factorio subreddit, which is how I get to it.

Pretty serendipitous timing - I was just finishing up a vanilla run and had just started a Space Exploration run maybe 3 days before this Alt-F4 dropped. I was getting a bit bogged down in the early phase (sort of out of burner phase except for furnaces) and both the burner phase and the more complicated recipes had me a little bit, not overwhelmed, but... had my interest lagging. But this Alt-F4 has me completely hyped again.

Really fun writeup - it looks and reads great.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the top-level domain not being .com when it comes to optimization on search engines.
