One advantage of adding Factorio to the Cosmic War rotation and running the game on our server is that I won’t be needed to set up the lobby and run the session. Our server will be running the game 24/7/365 exactly as with PA, and all that will be needed to play is to connect to it, again as with PA, but even better here because the session is automatically saved so that the game can be continued week after week indefinitely. So if I can’t make the session, the rest of the players can play just fine without me. This also means that when we are supposed to play PA, but I haven’t had the time to make a new system for example, we can just continue our Factorio game—it will require zero effort from me to run, so we never have to miss a week again. The Cosmic War event can be held every week without fail from now on as long as there are at least a couple of people showing up to play.

And that’s not all in Cosmic War news, because I plan to add a third game to the rotation soon, one we can play in the background throughout the entire week, and just Ike PA and Factorio, it’s the king of its genre. Formal announcement coming soon, but it shouldn’t be hard to guess!

I updated the schedule. As you can see, our focus for the next few weeks will be Factorio since it's new and exciting, but I'll throw some PA wars in there as well now and again, and I'll update the schedule accordingly well in advance. I have some cool ideas for new PA wars, and we'll definitely be trying them soon; the above schedule is just a draft, and will be amended throughout the summer.

But yes, our focus will have to be Factorio in order to get anywhere with it, because completing a run with the Space Exploration mod will take dozens of hours, and there'll probably be restarts as well.

I thought for a while about how much time to devote to these sessions. The average PA war lasts 2-3 hours because that's my target when building a system, and I set that target because that's what's most comfortable for people in all timezones. Everyone can play 2-3 hours, even if it's late at night for them, but if the session drags on for more than 4 hours, people start getting tired, or dropping off.

So that's why I decided to set the Factorio sessions to 4 hours. Normally we play much longer if we have a standard 4-man team, because the time can be scheduled to suit everyone; but with these regular weekly sessions we'll now be playing there may be more than 4 people, and from varied timezones. So I think 4 hours is a good compromise. Any less, and it'd be too little for such a complex game; any more and some people would struggle to play the full session.

That said, it's not like PA where you have to be there right at the start otherwise you can't join; you're free to arrive whenever, and leave whenever. All I am saying is that sessions will be terminated at 4 hours, even if several people want to keep playing. It just gives everyone the best chance to experience as much of the sessions as possible.

We'll reserve the Factorio thread in the Online subforum [ > ] for "standalone" games. Use that thread if you want to set up your own Factorio games with a set team, and let's keep this thread for the official "open"—and therefore hopefully bigger—Cosmic War runs where anyone can join at any time.

And by the way, another advantage of restricting the sessions to 4 hours is that, when you miss a session, you won't have missed that much. You'll have an entire week to sit down and watch the 4-hour stream if you want, but a 10-minute skim should also suffice to get caught up for the next session. This should allow more people to stick with the "campaign" for a longer time.

Planetary Factorization #1 & #2

The first session went terrifically. I was expecting 4-5 people and we got 9. It's not the biggest Factorio session we've ever played, I am pretty sure we've played at least one session with about 10 people years ago, but we didn't know the game back then as we do now, and the Space Exploration mod wasn't out yet, so we were playing vanilla "Marathon" game which wasn't as fun as what we're playing now. The Marathon setting makes progress much slower, which made sense back then since the longer the game, the better. But now that Space Exploration doubles the content, and the official expansion will soon triple it, I don't see a need for Marathon anymore.

"Death world", on the other hand, is a must, and that's the only main game setting I adjusted. We might end up having to tone it down a bit if progress ends up stalling for too long, or we lose a bunch of players, but for now it's exactly what we need and it has made both of our attempts thrilling. Below are the Space Exploration-specific settings I set up; everything you see with the red light is changes I made from defaults. All my changes make the game more hardcore.

Image

Space Exploration recommends a bunch of mods, and we installed all of them: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/space-exploration

Earendel wrote:Recommended mods:
Grappling Gun: To catch yourself if you fall off your space station. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/grappling-gun
AAI Containers & Warehouses: Larger containers matching the vanilla style. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-containers
Combat Mechanics Overhaul: So your defences can be better protected if you abandon them for a while. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/combat-mechanics-overhaul
Bullet Trails: So you can see where turrets are shooting. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/bullet-trails

Equipment Gantry: Lets you automate putting equipment in spidertrons while they are items so that they can be deployed by rockets on new planets. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/equipment-gantry


I have to ask dan to show me how to install mods, so we can experiment with more of them for future runs, but for the time being he at least taught me how to fully operate the server (turn on/shut down/set up new game), so that's progress. In the past I couldn't do a thing without his help. The main mod I'd like to pile on to what we have running is Krastorio 2, and I will probably add it to attempt #3 when we get there.

So Space Exploration floods the game with tons of professional-grade content, and changes things up from the first moments. This coronal mass ejection for example happens mere seconds into the start now:

Image

But I'll sing the mod's praises in the main Factorio thread. Here is the first run we played, lasting about an hour and a half (recoil's stream is shorter because he only started streaming towards the end):

After this brutal end, our factories completely overrun by hordes of bugs, we started a second run, this time taking care to handcraft as much as possible so as to not aggravate the bugs with too much pollution before we were ready to face them, and it has worked great so far. We destroyed a bunch of their nests, and didn't get attacked a single time in the 2 hours 45 minutes we played. This time the streams were equal length as they were started at the same time. We're doing two streams to try to cover most of what's happening across the sprawling base(s).

Rory had to drop out maybe half an hour to an hour before the end, so he can skim the videos to see what he missed. I think we took out one or two more nests after he left, and were just about to start up green science production before we decided to call it a night. If you discount the hour-or-so we spent setting up the server and game settings, we played almost exactly 4 hours, as advertised.

Session #2 of attempt #2 will take place this coming Saturday July 16 at 1 PM UTC, and I hope to see many people there as it should be a thrilling session. With the intro stage out of the way, and the factory in great shape, we should be able to get a lot done with the full 4 hours, as long as we don't screw up. If you missed the first session entirely and want to join us for the second, just skim the last two videos and you'll get the gist of where we're at. See you on Saturday!

So the second session of our second run went well.

We played pretty much exactly 4 hours. We had 5 people and it still looks like Death world is perfectly balanced for us at about that number of players, so that we're on our toes the whole time, and it feels like any major mistake could cost us the entire run, while minor mistakes aren't game-ending and may be recovered from.

We missed last week's session because I got food poisoning and was out for a whole week, but I am well now and the third session is tonight at 10 PM UTC, and we have 5 players confirmed so far. Lookin' forward to getting another solid 4 hours in.

Have neglected to post the last three updates so here they are. The 4th episode has two parts because ysignal started streaming at 720p for 20 minutes before remembering to switch to 1080p.

By now the game has gotten quite complex, so after every session I'll be writing down some notes on what we're trying to accomplish so that we hit the ground running for the next session. Here's what we have now:

High priority
Southeast oil base needs more turrets and thicker walls
Eliminate northwest alien hive
Automate laser and flame turrets
Automate more science
Main research goal: Robotics

Medium priority
Start using trains

Our playercount fluctuates, we've had as many as 8-9 players in a couple of sessions, but mostly we average about 5 I would say. It's been highly enjoyable, and I can't wait to see what comes next.

I'll try to set up a game for this Saturday if we can get 4-5 people in. Otherwise next Saturday. But probably we'll be playing both weekends. I also have some news on Factorio in general that I'll be posting soon in the game's thread, so look out for that.

Last session two weeks ago was a big one with 7 players. It was the first session I personally missed. Next session is coming up later tonight, another big one with again 7 players, not including me, though I think I might be able to make it, in which case we'll have 8 and should be able to split cleanly into two groups for some cool multitasking.

- More rail lines from mines to main base

We added some extra walls at the oil base, but it's not getting attacked much because it doesn't produce much pollution.

I stopped the server and saved the game locally as a backup.

About two hours in, we all joined one channel and decided what to do next and a few people switched roles.


ChevRage wrote:We could probably clean up the belt spaghetti at the base too. Create zones for each individual component, with expansion space for more component fabrication within each one. It's probably better to get a small start on this sooner rather than later to save headaches later on. It seems to me that no component truly becomes obsolete as they get used in more advanced recipes anyway.

Last session was another large one with 8 players. I think as we get deeper into the game and it gets more complex, people are more excited to join. I know I am, since I've never been so far into it, and can't wait to see what comes next. The problems multiply in number and complexity, and we have even new planets coming up soon.

ysignal posted a pic of the base on Steam, and that's a good thing to be doing going forwards as the base gets bigger and bigger: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 2875814754

It's 4K too, so you can zoom in crazy. Q-veta is at the south base, the rest of us are in the central one, but I don't know what Archonus is doing in the middle of nowhere in the far east lol.

ChevRage wrote:A core drill has been built, but we have yet to build the infrastructure that will allow us to exploit the resources it mines. We just need to properly pipeline each type of material to the right location. I'm not sure what priority this should take up.


ysignal wrote:It's a medium priority at the moment.


Nine 4-hour sessions means we've put 36 hours in this run by now, and we'll get to 40 when we play the 10th session in a few hours. We have 7 people signed up for that. We've fallen a bit behind the defenses game, and though it's not hugely stressful on a micro level, it kind of is on the macro because if we lose we're losing 40 hours and we won't be doing another run anytime soon. On the OTHER hand, if we do lose, the next run we're adding Krastorio 2 on top of the Space Exploration mod we're using now, and I would kinda like to do such a combined run before the expansion hits in a year. But in that case, we'd take several months off before trying this run.

So it's all good whatever happens, and there's a silver lining even if we botch this run.

Planetary Factorization #2/10

Unread postby icycalm » 10 Dec 2022 20:49

I missed this session because I didn't sleep at all the night before. Too busy researching something or working on something, I can't remember. Maybe just too excited to sleep generally. That's 2 out of 10 sessions I missed, which isn't too bad. I think the only one who hasn't missed any is ysignal, and that's a good thing because he directs tech research plus pretty much everything else. Though I think with his priorities list and research goals we could handle the odd session without him.

ChevRage wrote:Regarding the contaminants, it might be from when somebody cancels something that they were crafting. The crafting process takes all the items from your inventory, and puts them in a sort of limbo until the end result has been completed. If you have a full inventory, and cancel the craft of some item, it will deposit the ingredients all over the floor.

I was wondering why I'd see piles of items lying around in strange places until this happened to me this session.

Whoa I missed the rocket launch, what does this mean??

ChevRage
We get a rudimentary list of the planets in the solar system I think, but we need to launch more satellites (via rocket) before we get a map

icycalm
So the rocket didn’t have anything on it? Like a satellite?

ChevRage
It had 1 satellite, but we need more

icycalm
Or does it fire rockets every few minutes?

ChevRage
It took a lot of resources to launch a single rocket, so it certainly won't be every few minutes just yet

icycalm
Need to research Musk
Kinda bummed I missed this game, but at least I slept for like 16 hours and am feeling great now. I think I’ve missed 2/10 games so far. I think ysignal is probably the only one who’s played all of them. Don’t think we can play without him anyway.
Then again, since he’s now giving us the next research goals, we might be able to swing a session without him.

ysignal
We only launched a satellite rocket. We need to keep launching them to produce more rocket science packs, which are needed for most research now.

The cargo rocket is an extremely resource heavy construction task, so we definitely want to fill it with as much useful stuff as possible. There was a tip that popped up when we made the silo that mentioned something about bringing construction materials for a space platform with us as well. Probably something we can read up on in the tutorial pages. We might want to look at that before committing to the trip

It was space scaffolding, one of the ingredients was the low density structure, the others (which I don't remember) were more common
It sounded like the space version of landfill but we should look it up next session to see if we can build it here, it would be more efficient than having the ingredients occupy 3-4 slots in the cargo rocket

Only one video for this session because Chev didn't make it.

No base pic because ysignal forgot to zoom out enough to see the northern oil outpost we made, so no point to it, but we did take a pic showing the new cargo rocket silo and landing pads: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 2925153278
