Hello guys, thank you for the fantastic game. We are planning large project with friends but we do not know, if we should wait until 0.13 released. Will be possible to convert map from 0.12 to 0.13 easily without loosing some content of 0.13? Thanks!
Yes, conversions are always possible. It might require to change some parts of the Factory, but usually not much.
Is it possible to convert a multiplayer save back in to a single player one?
There is not a big difference between the saves, you can just load multiplayer save in singleplayer.
How come my laptop wiith Intel Graphics can't run this game, after following the instructions to fix the problem?
The minimum for the game is 512 Mb of dedicated video memory.
When the Factorio forum is going to be optimized for smartphones? I would guess not soon, because developing the game itself is more important than the forum. Keep up the good work on developing the game!
Yes, we use phpbb, which is 3rd party free forum software. We don't plan on rewriting it, as you said, developing the game is more important.
Hi. # Your game is fantastic but i got one big Problem. I got spawned on an island. My resources are not much, how can i change this. Maybe with a mod/card editor and or console trick. Could you help me pls :)
We have a problem whit the multiplayer funktion we cant play more then 2 at the same time plz fast awnser!!!!
This is probably solved in 0.12.
will you be able to change the account name somewhen?
Probably no, especially when we plan it to connect it with the multiplayer username.
Will the Singleplayer Campaigns be fixed any time soon? Now that the major release is over?
I don't know what is broken there.
Could you add S-bend train tracks that shift the train one or two spaces over? It would make laying out trains much less frustrating, and, I believe, closer to reality.
I'm also missing this piece, but we have so many things planned, that it probably won't be sooner than in 0.14
Could you make the sandbox mode better, firstly that would be awesome if you could drive vehicles and secondly instead of getting items from a chest could you make it so you just click the item and have it. :0)
Both is possible :)
You want to add dedicated server on windows?
You can use the normal factorio as dedicated server. The only reason we have dedicated server for linux is, that it is common to have linux machines without any graphics, so it allows to run it without graphics.
Hello Factorio devs! One of the most complicated but best games out there and so many amazing things you can make! I do have a problem tho, I have 9.8 (or something similar) and it won't update? It says it checks for updates but it doesn't work, help a friend out please?Daniel
If this happens, it is easiest to just redownload the game from the page.
Are there any official list of public multiplayer servers?
No, but 0.13 will contain multiplayer matching server.
Why did you choose c++ over other languages?
Because I have many years of experience with C++.
C++ also allows hardcore low level optimizations, that very few other languages support.
ever since I watched one of my favourite YouTuber play this game and recommended it, I looked for it on steam buy couldn't find your game! so it was the first time I bought a game from some where else. I'm addicted to it! thank you very much for making this game. 2015 is coming soon and the game wil
We promised to go to steam once 0.12 is stable, we are already working on 0.12 so it will probably happen in a few months.
ok so i see theres a railgun but know recipe when is that recpie getting added cuz i dont like spawning it in
The railgun is now not available in the game, as we need to polish and balance it. So spawning is the only way for now.
How many people have bought the "Mining Drill Operator" pack thus far? Is my name ever going to show up when building an lab of station?
The package Mining drill operator was bought by 3231 people (4%). (13. 5. 2015)
Can you add the Paysafecard to the payment methods please?
Paysafecard is fully operational now.
Once I buy the game can I load it onto multiple computer?
How can I start a new sandbox game... When I click play I only see Start Campaign, Load Game, Replay Game and Back
You are probably playing the demo. (Check about). In full version, the first option is the "New game".
Is there a way to not use specific proterties of entities in mods, for example not use any animation on a car entity?
It usually isn't possible. You can hack it by providing transparent 1X1 animation with one frame. This might be solved in the (far) future by having general lua entity where the drawing logic is done in the lua.
Will you ever make a dedicated server option, I think this will be very good for the game, so 1 computer is host and everyone else connects to him, Pleseeee? Please do and allow for mod/plugin support (like minecraft bukkit plugins) I know that mods are already supported but I don't know in what way
Yes, that is planned for the next (0.12) version, so it will probably happen.
In your roadmap (list of things that you are going to implement), you mention space platform building. Does this mean the player can travel to space? Possibly visit other planets? What are your thoughts on this?
In 0.12 the game ends by building a rocket. In 0.13 it will be extended, by building the space platform (spaceship), that will be used to finish the game. Visiting other planets or asteroids is not planned yet, but it is a bonus that might happen in the future, but no promises here.
I recommend to improve the sounds, a game with these characteristis should have a better quality and more detailed sounds. Aswell i recommend to add camera options that would let you to move 4 times around your character, like simcity 4. Sorry for my english.
Yes, the current sounds are mostly placeholders. Daniel is working on the sounds and they will be much better in the future versions.
