And yet, shouldn't there already be an alpha version for adventurous players to try out and for modders to test and fix their mods?
There are already multiple alphas out. The last one is 0.16, wich has been declared "stable" meaning that it will likely not crash or eat your saves.
It does not include the new features and upgrades that will come with the new (and surely experimental) 0.17 - but it is considered to be pretty good already and you can play it right right now.

An alpha version of an alpha version? :roll:

If 0.17 isn't released I think they can change a lot of things which makes fixed mods for an older 0.17 unplayable an the modders waste a lot of time

The very thing you're asking for. I've been playing it for 5 years. Though it wasn't always called 0.16, it was always the alpha build of unfinished software.

Sorry, sounded to me like you had just bought the game and not having any experience with the Factorio release cycle. Nice to know, that you did not really expected Wube to rush something...

I realise people are looking forward to 0.17, but I don't get the pressure being put on them to release ASAP or even the demand they should do it and do it soon. Its their game its their product and its up to them to say when its ready.

Exactly what I think about the release as well. They will release when it is ready. Though I would like it to release like 0.13 and 0.14 did... Experimental branch first.

Give the Mod Authors first access before normal users. This means that most mods can be updated.
I might also say a good suggestion is to have a "Mod Makers" registration, where mod authors submit their mods... Then they get early access to the next game patch, so they can adjusti mods if they wish to ahead of the official release. (I know alot of people complain about mods as much as they do about major patch versions.)

I would like to add a HUGE thank you to the Dev's and Team that are making Factorio such an awesome game for us to play. It is a pleasure to have been along for the journey you have provided us with. All the different versions and changes to the game across the years.

So what you are saying is that Steam Network is implemented in the new update 0.17? ;)

I don't usually play with mods. But I think many of those who do would be happy that mods are updated as fast as they can be.
The mod authors would also be using an "experimental" build that is not guaranteed to even work. just check if their mods will still "work" in the new version.

When you get a pre-release experimental version (or alpha) you are helping the devs to problem solve and if you happen to be a mod author at the same time... you just happen to update your mod to be compatible with the next version. (my meaning is to use the mod authors as alpha testers, so they can update mods and find bugs that might be missed by the devs or not appear on their machine setups.)

There are many games out there that i had access to before most gamers... just because I might have been part of the alpha testers or beta testers for those games. Everyone else had to wait 6 months. But my experience was that the game crashed after mission 2 and you could not progress beyond that point for 2 months. Would you want to get to 10 hours into your game and then have a game breaking bug that forces a restart and loss of save ? (plus not be annoyed about it as you are a alpha tester. You report the bug in a nice way that gives as much information to re-create the bug.)
