Factorio needs to improve the tutorial.
Hey I love this game and can't stop playing it, BUT...
What ?WHAT do you suggest? What is your idea that should be changed? Explain in detail your idea.
As a new player, I had several questions about the game I could not find answers for anywhere on their web sites or in tutorials.
Why should I have to search numerous web sites to learn how to play a game?
There should just be a document that comes with the game, explaining it all.
For one thing, I want a simple explanation of how the game is played through to the end.
I know that I need to research new technology in the lab. That unlocks new recipes so I can craft new products.
Therefore, I assume I will need these products. So I go ahead and make some.
But I come to a point when I have products and no use for them.
So I go ahead research the next technology in the lab.
Where is all this heading? Where is the manual, the walkthrough?
Also, can I see a picture of a completed factory? Not to cheat, but just as an illustration.
A new player does not know why the products are needed, nor how many of a product will be needed.
Also, where is the best place to build them?
This info should be provided to the player when they first start.
You could also have info boxes pop up, like the tips and tutorials.
Why ?WHY do you think it increases the value of Factorio as a game?
Mainly, when I'm playing, I want to know "Why do I need to build this product?"
More people will play the game if it isn't so baffling.
Having said all that, it's a great game and I look forward to the next expansion.
