Yah. Those guys are ... not scary, but what's the next word down?

Right: impressive as all get out.

If you want to save yourself a terminal inadequacy complex stop right not and spend your childhood playing the game rather than comparing your newbie skillz to what the literal, actual professionals can achieve. The Supply Challenge scenario's good for tuning up your git-r-dun focus, but seriously? Just play. Don't watch videos, it's more fun to learn this stuff by playing.

I wholeheartedly agree with you on this one. It is fun to make mistakes and try to find alernatives. This is something one have to experience and cannot be taught. Learning by trial and error - that is the spirit as I see it.

Every sinner has a future, every saint has a past. Not very suitable in the context of this thread but I needed to say something smart :D

I might be a dedicated player, but I am far too casual to even imagine what those speedrunners are doing.

They are leagues above many of us. Of course it is all about practice + the little extra which cannot be taught. You have it or not.

I think these are much more impressive. The any% runs use such rich and dense resources, and such large starting areas, that there isn't really much to learn from them for normal gameplay.

Easiest way to get both achievements is a team game. About 10 players with a good map + blueprint usually can launch a rocket in a few hours, even if they are not pro speedrunners.
I planned to join such team several times, but did not completed it yet. Of all Factorio achies I miss only three: two for speed rocket launch, and 111 items, since I'm lazy to do it.

If you are browsing achievements, you may have noticed lazy b. (see above, only 111 items handcrafted before launching a rocket) Alot of folks are missing that one


I remember back in my newb days that I learned ALOT by completing that. I even remember a few spots from the factory I was playing that on, 3 years later!

If you compare that to speedruns (except for the 100% ones) in which they are handcrafting all the time, you'll notice that there are many ways to play the game.

Before that lazy bastard, I handcrafted all the belts and inserters my starter factory needed, until I absolutely had to automate green science and steal it from there when expanding.
Turned out that you can use assemblers for that, hand or chest fed, making gears and green chips.
It might seem obvious, but it changed my life back then. :roll: :lol:

The more you automate early, even before you need it, the faster you get.
Don't aim for what you see speedrunners do, their handcrafting is just optimized for THEIR goal.

15h is not that hard, in my first planned 8h run I beat that easily, missing the 8h only by 10 minutes.

Which is why a lot of people tend to lean toward peaceful mode once they find out about.
