factorio downloader for UNIX-like systems

Hi all,

Last year, I wrote a downloader script for unattended downloads of factorio, it's here: https://gitlab.com/moviuro/factorio-dl .

Clearly inspired by the work done on the AUR, but improved so that it runs on any Linux distro, as well as BSD, and it should work on macOS and WSL too (though both are untested as of today).

I've also re-written the PKGBUILD so that it actually checks the hashsum for the game archive (unlike that in the AUR) (the stable PKGBUILD is here).

If you have issues or improvements to suggest, I'm all ears.

I had written about it on reddit, but I might as well post it here.

Best regards,
