Diagonal Factorio

Post by namek »

Says it all doesn't it?

Add diagonal building. Totaling 8 directions of building everything.


Why? Using 90 degrees corners all the time sucks. Is Old and demotivates playing this awesome creation.

I know it's a lot of work and stuff, but 20EUR game should really have it, I mean just think how awesome it will be!

Too much of performance impact? GPUs are idling, geforce 560gtx is 20% loaded, unless it's a vram problem, but I'm sure it can be worked out without a lot of hassle.

Support this idea guys and gals, this game deserves it!

TL;DR;

Add 4 additional directions for belts, splitters, inserters, pumps, all buildings that don't have it or support it. This is a major change, both graphical and logical, would expect a whole new version of the game dedicated just for that. Probably will slip through devs eyes, but if we had enough supporters....People please, I BEG YOU, don't be silent, say a Word, support it!

Thank you.

Might be nice but everything is a static image, not actually a model, so every direction would have be rendered new.

It would also take a lot more space; belts would take two spaces themselves... could only put one inserter per side into or out of 3x3 building diagonal...
don't see this ever happening.

There is Bob's Adjustable Inserters which gives diagonal inserters (sort-of)

why stop at diagonal? Lets allow everything to be built on any angle! then point and laugh at the developers as they lose their hair

Rendering yes, but it needs to render what's on a screen, so I don't see much of increase of requirements. Unless VRAM, but it's possible to optimize it. Even now this game requires way to much of VRAM.

I don't understand with much more space. What do you mean? belts would still take same amount of space. Like rails do. Still 3 inserters from diagonal building.

I'm aware of side inserters, but this has nothing to do with them.

Because we can run only at 8 directions.

1. It would be very difficult and boring to build base like that.
2. It's too power consuming.
3. Devs would just laugh at that suggestion. Most if not all of game engine needs to be redone. I just hope they won't laugh at mine.

It would be great to have diagonal walls, gates and belts. I don't even need to take items off the belts when they're diagonal.
I just want to get rid of that disgusting staircase shape, for walls And gates!

No. Staircases are not diagonal.

I hope diagonal walls are possible without redoing everything. We already have diagonal shorelines and concrete floors.

They are if you zoom out far enough. :P
