This is the place to show off what you have built. You can post screenshots of factories, videos, boast about number of Express Transport Belts created, whatever. Efficiency and originality ftw !

I'd love to make a video (or more) about this game. But i have two questions first:

1. Are we allowed to make videos to show in public (like e.g. on youtube) without posting them here (this may sound dumb, but i've seen a lot of weird rules for videos by other companys)?

2. Are we allowed to monetize those videos?

Hi wubbi,

we have no rules like that. We would be really dumb if we didn't want people making videos, it helps us to advertise the game a lot.
You are free to make videos or other materials in any way you wish, you can make fun us, you can make money out of these videos, anything you want.

List of let's play videos

Post by ssilk » Sat May 17, 2014 7:01 am

I want to mention here the Let's play page in the wiki.

The page will become a link from the wiki main page and/or some beginner page.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

I was thinking about sharing my new factory design but i could not find a howto for sharing factories. Is there a nice tutorial on how to take and share screen shots.
I think i could find the information by forum diving but i still think that it should be sticked somewhere.

There are a few tips here in the wiki.
You can upload your pictures to any imagehoster (imgur, puush) and link them or add them directly here in the forum as attachment.

The easiest way is by taking a screenshot of your Factorio Window and upload it on the forum with Upload Attachement (right under where you type when posting), and adding an inline after that.

Hi, I'm on my 6th Factorio game, and I have some feedback to the game makers. Where might be the best place for that?
Thanks.

P.S. This is the best computer game I've ever played!

I think the first post in this thread should be updated to explain the new subfora and where one should post what.

(I also notice that threads in the new subfora don't get a lot of readership, maybe the names should be a bit less obscure?)

Sorry, no, this is still experimenting and I will see, how the users work with it. For example: Maybe I will reduce the number of boards.

I'm open for suggestions. :)

Mechanical Throughput Magic (circuit-free)--> "belt-based designs"
Medium/Big/Gigantic Sized Structrctures -> "megabases"

The others seem fine, although I would probably drop the power plant subforum, especially now that accu levels are directly measurable?

List the subforums in the parent index.

See phpbb.com for how it should look.

Alternatively, I would just drop the subforums for 'ongoing' discussions, but add a "hall of fame" with great posts for rail, belts, end-game setups, etc. I think most people check the 'show your creations' forums to see what's going on, and they aren't necessarily only interested in one kind of creation?

(actually, what is the problem you are trying to solve with subforums? I thought it was working pretty well before...)
