Hi,

I played it with my son (10 that time probably) the very first time. We did as part of tutorial what we had to do... and
I said "you don't need to do that, you can let the game do that for you." and I got a weird look.
I showed him and ... was amazed, but didn't want to admit to how silly he was at first.

So I was immediately hooked due to the "Automate everything" aspect. When I had the first train .... ooooooh, awesome.
Oh, you can run over, too.

Let the game play itself, to some extend, I am just the manager here. That appealed very much.
I have only ever played two saves (and lazy bastard, but that was very repetitive). The first save was "just a mess" (c) but it worked. I got the rocket started,
it took 20 minutes for each start (and I wouldn't have started the rocket wouldn't my son have pushed me).
Now on the second. It would just run with 1kspm til the ~80M resources each run out. And the game/base is just an object of love. Just enjoying the automatisms I have setup and let me do the planning.

All in all, amazing.
Thank you Factorio devs!

First time around I was like "huh, kinda boring.". Then I was like, "hey, I should get more ore to make those electric drills! those look fun." then i was like "Why am I tired?" And then i hit the Windows key, it was 11:00PM. I have 1000 hours now and my future impressions are favorable, as in this game is great!

Code: Select all

if (factorio.gameplay.time >= 1000)
{
bool worship = true
}

"I think this game is broken, I simply cannot move my guy" :shock:

I play strategy games, often turn-based, few real-time-anythings. Have used click to move, right-click, drag, cursor keys. But never once WASD ... :shock:

Started playing two days ago and my first impression was: hey, this what I do for a living! I'm a devops/systems engineer and automation plays a huge role in my job. Factorio illustrates need for automation in large and complex systems perfectly. If you leave that furnace without steady supply of coal it will eventually screw you over. Leave that SSL cert renewal and installation not automated and it will eventually screw you over :)
