This game is awesome, just picked it up today. Completely enthralled. Only regret is I wish I heard about it later so I could have played the complete game because I know I'm going to get burned out.

This is going to sell like Starbound and Terraria. It's going to be huge. It's really good they didn't put this on early access too early.

Because when it does finally come to steam it will be a complete game which will drive the sales.

I think it would be neat if radar UNLOCKED chunks of the map so you had to have radar in order to expand the map. Or maybe have that as an option or a mod or something.


edit: wait is that how it works now? I haven't really ran far away from my base yet

Ah, I don't think I had access to the long handed inserters in the earlier missions, so I forgot about them. That will work!

You definitely don't need them, use the method on the right. Arranging 2 inputs on different sides of the belt is part of the fun! The inserter can take from both sides but only outputs to the far side.

It'll just pull in the appropriate resource from either side of the belt as needed?

Yup

I'm trying to get this running on my laptop and for some reason the game launches but it's minimized and won't maximize. I'm able to see that it's launched from the preview when I hover over it on my taskbar. Anyone know wtf is going on?

Anyone know why I'm unable to pull the update? Tried checking for update with experimental checked and without. Says no new updates available.

I'm excited for the UI redesign. The current one is ~fine~ but a good UI would make this game a little more marketable (eventhough they have 250k+ copies sold but still).

How do I fix this?



I just got back into this, still getting my bearings

edit: Aww poo poo when I alt tabbed it turned off the overlays, eh I guess it doesn't matter that much.

This is what I'm using at the moment, adds a bunch of MK2/MK3 stuff as well as some QoL features and another end-game goal, the Ion Cannon:

So I added a couple mods that have research that was already completed so I don't seem to have access to the stuff it unlocked. Is there any way to reload stuff I've already researched or something? Or do I have to start a new map?

Anyone have an idea why my bots aren't using my charging pads from Bob's mod? I've tried a ubnch of different things, like using Bob's robo ports only, not using roboports at all and only using those storage chests, several other stuff. They are connected to the network via the yellow lines and within the range yada yada.

Here's an offcenter gif:

Figured it out. Bots only recharge at pads if they need a recharge during a task. They always sit and wait at the port if they are done with their task and ready to go home.

Welp I can launch 2 rockets now every minute or so. I guess I'm done.

For some reason there was no rockets launches counter though, even though I always put satellites in my rockets.

The end game gets pretty crazy with Bob's modules and those god modules. I had 2 rocket silos full of god modules and the components being build in the highest assembler with god modules. Went pretty fast.




Glad to be done, this wasn't healthy. Twice as long as my Rimworld binge.

Anyone know why the counter for the rockets doesn't display for me? Or why the victory screen never came up?

I'm using these mods:



edit: I always send up a satellite (or ion cannon)

Figured this out. I'm playing on a custom scenario. To get it to work you just need to copy over the control.lua from the freeplay scenario, next rocket launch it worked.

Anyone have experience using the marathon mod + Bob's? I'm able to get it loading fine, but when I disable specific modules from Bob's, it no longer loads, and crashed the game. The thread on the official forums says you can use whatever activated mods you would like, but it still crashed for me. I figured I'd ask here before posting in the official thread.
