Floor Tiles to cover water

Post by 3LollipopZ » Sun Jul 19, 2015 12:59 am

Sorry, I know it's been discussed, but can we get floor tiles to cover water? Yes, it's a bridge...
And yes, I want to build on it... at least conveyors.

Maybe just timber pontoons.

Do we really need this suggested? I thought it was the logical next step.
It would certainly be interesting, but I think if those tiles could support heavier machines, it woul take a part of the gameplay away. Maybe allow conveyor belts, pipes, or even rails.

Or conveyor bridges that would go over the water, instead of tiles that cover the water.
In Factorio, we are actually the bad guys. We are attacking the biters on their own planet, destroying their homes. They are trying to stop us, but without succes...


Time for some diplomacy...

So if you know, that it is suggested, why don't you just add your opinion there?

Conveyor bridges are kind of meh. There's plenty of land space to work with.

Rail bridges would be nice. A huge river can really put a dent in your rail network, and being able to bridge it would be great.

Bridges made of stone? Or steel?

Why not both? There's this whole new concrete thing, now.

Sorry guys, I just could not find a post like it...

I did mean 'floor tiles' in particular, rather than conveyors, etc. But I'll make sure I do some more googling before I post another stupid suggest (like I'm about to do with tanks + requestor chests.

Before you search wrong: requester, not requestor. :)

Off-topic: I wanna reduce my activities, but it's difficult, because for me it is ... interesting to see the development of this community.

I'm sure it is.
And to know that you have shaped the game by being so active in the community; more so in the early days than now.
At least you can rest knowing the game is at a stage that it doesn't 'need' as much community support as it once did. It now needs a good community to become a successful game and make people millions of monies!
