PrefaceAs someone who has 600 ping at all times (Sattelite internet, I live in the middle of nowhere lol) multiplayer is almost unbareable. I'm constantly having a stuttering connection and things are teleporting around. A lot of games are still playable, but not Factorio which I really think would have already had this suggestion, since it's a sandbox based game.
TL;DR:Factorio has a HORRIBLE multiplayer support for those with even slightly bad internet that most games already compensate for.
What ?I'm gonna say this once as loud as I can: LATENCY SUPPORT
For those that have the blessing of good internet, this is what allows the game to actually be playable. I guess in a way it can be described as the computer lies to you and tells you what's *probably* happening instead of completely lagging out. Here are some examples of just how bad my internet is:
In the second example, I'm actually clicking and waiting for the item to finally transfer into my own inventory. Which really shows you how tedious gameplay can be. I think the biggest things that require latency support are entitites such as players and aliens, because otherwise they start teleporting around (including myself) and the other thing that needs support is items. I shouldn't have to wait a whole second to transfer one item seemingly. For the software developers in the room: Say "NO!" to Authorative Server Control!
