Container-based Factorio

Post by Spedge » Sun Feb 10, 2019 4:48 pm

lo folks,

I'd like to get a lunchtime server set-up at work for myself and my Factorio-playing buddies at work. However, installing Steam might be a bit tricky - I'd like to set-up both a server and get some clients that we can download to play this.

1) Is there a container-based (see Docker) server that you can recommend? If not - anyone be interested if I made one?
2) Is there a container-based client available?
3) If there was to be an easily available client, how would licensing work - is that available via key or somesuch?

I'm sure some of these answers have been answered before but a cursory search doesn't seem to turn up anything - so any help would be much obliged.

Thanks!

If you can run Docker, you can run the native headless. Just fetch it: https://factorio.com/get-download/stabl ... ss/linux64

You can link your steam account to your factorio.com account and fetch a client, then log in from an install of that or just drop your id and token into player-data.json yourself.

There's no need for containers.
