Factorio IRC

Post by slpwnd » Fri May 09, 2014 7:39 am

Hi guys,

so for some time there have been two IRC rooms, both at irc.esper.net. The "you-guess-the-name" #Factorio and then "double-hash" ##Factorio. Most of the people are using the ##Factorio one. The problem is that the guy who started it is the only with the operator access at the moment and also the name is not intuitive. So we decided to support the #Factorio room as being kind of "official" chat room for the game. It was started by TGS and now also me and (soon) kovarex will have admin rights.

So if you are using the ##Factorio room please consider moving to #Factorio. We will announce this also in todays Friday Facts.

EDIT: TGS arranged an automatic forwarding from ##Factorio to #Factorio. So I guess it is just a matter of time to see you there:)

BTW: Webchat should work also:

http://webchat.esper.net/?channels=#Factorio

It even worked on my IPad...


And for completeness this is the originating thread (now locked to avoid more confusion):

And I hate you for this.

I don't know why you guys chose Espernet for the #factorio channel. The privacy policy basically doesn't exist (they tell you on the website that they share data with third parties, but don't name those third parties) and you can't even hide your IP address. Im pretty sure that there are malicious bots on the server that collect those ip adresses and try to do bad things (e.g. DDOS, trying to get into the system, port scanning and so on...) So you either have a choice to connect through a VPN or give your IP Address to over 8000 people that are currently connected to the network.

I would recommend Gamesurge or Quakenet, since they both allow the users to hide their IP Address and they have good network services as well.

Hello everyone,
I highly suggest using Discord very similar to teamspeak. But you dont install a program its bit into your browser. If you want to check it out. I have created a server just for Factorio MP. Protects your IP.

How exactly should I use the "USER" command? Are there any naming requirements for the last parameter? I keep ending up with the following...

Code: Select all

NICK Gergely
USER Gergely 0 * : <what should/can go here?>
:catastrophe.esper.net NOTICE * :*** Looking up your hostname...
:catastrophe.esper.net NOTICE * :*** Checking Ident
:catastrophe.esper.net NOTICE * :*** Found your hostname
:catastrophe.esper.net NOTICE * :*** No Ident response
JOIN #factorio
:catastrophe.esper.net 451 * :You have not registered
