I did say it was a MISTAKE to ask for more water. I had no idea this would be the effect, I kind of expected large bodies of water, large landmasses and a few connection points between the landmasses.Hedning1390 wrote:Yes, well, it is a little strange to ask for a lot of water and then landfill it all. At least I don't think it's something they should increase stone availability to support.
In any case there's always more room if you just explore further.
I might have expected this in a different game, but I totally didn't expect it in a game like factorio that requires so much building space.
Anyway, I learned. I won't ask for any more than DEFAULT water on my next map. But it was a BAD experience, and I don't think the developers are interested in creating bad experiences for their customers, that is how you lose them.
That is why I suggested tying stone generation with water generation... so that people can cope with it without ruining the experience.
Another option would be to make large landmasses and large bodies of water.
A third option would be to remove the option for huge amounts of water... so that unaware people won't shoot themselves in the foot.
