Re: Twitch - Big Pharma video request

I generally despise livestreams because 1) They have basically no editing and (consequently, and because they have a lot of audience participation) 2) They are only really fun (IMO) if you are there when they are happening, which I almost never am due to a busy schedule. So I don't think I'll make a...

Re: [Suggestion] Alternative patent system

Underlined sections indicate suggestions which just occurred to be now but should be considered an addition to my original suggestion list. Patents cannot be dodged with side effects or delivery methods - any drug containing that cure as an active effect is effected by the patent. Personally I curr...

[Suggestion] Alternative patent system

I realize that the current patent system took a lot of work and is set up like this for a reason, but I think it might be nice to have a more powerful/realistic patent system, maybe just as an option that can be used in custom games. Here's what would be different about it: Instead of patenting drug...

Re: [Suggestion] More use of ctrl-click

I believe ctrl is already used when building belts to enable the "manual" belt placement method (which used to be the only way to place belts). It would be nice to have more control over how belts place themselves, but you can actually get around that by using the manual belt placement whe...

Re: Patents and clogging conveyor belts

Here is a suggestion for better indication of what drugs are patented: This shows you that Relieves Hypertension, Eases Asthma, and Appetite Suppressant are patented when you check the Cures tab. This is not actually how Patents work (though I think it would make more sense if it did). You don't pa...

Re: Underground conveyor belt

That's pretty much exactly how they work in Factorio. I think Tim wants to avoid doing that for Big Pharma though because he likes keeping things in view of the player.

Re: Flow rate of ingredients

Even without using low-tier machines to save cost, you have to spend a lot of space to make high level drugs. Take a look at this production line I made: http://positech.co.uk/forums/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=11634 I pretty much filled up an entire large warehouse with a single production line...

Re: Some additional cures and side effects.

What even is "sexual side effects"? :P Addiction sounds pretty evil, since if it actually works you could drive up demand for drugs using it. You could even make money off of a sugar pill if it was addictive. XD Maybe legal ramifications could come in to play there and you could need regul...

Re: Finding Max Strength of Tier 2 or 3 Cures?

So is the best approach to sell a cheap (i.e. pill) version of cure as soon as it is activated and then analyse it once 30 or so have been sold? And once Strength is known, adjust the concentration before making more of the product/pill? Those are two separate methods. The method of selling it firs...

Re: Conveyor belt system trough production halls?

It is not currently possible, but I would like to see a way to do this. It could be implemented using the import and export sockets by adding a tool that lets the player create a sort of "tunnel" from an export socket to an import socket (it would have to be one way for practical reasons) ...

Re: [Bug] Main menu gets backed up

Tim mentioned this in a vlog before, and yes, it's because they drugs aren't named. Would like to see it fixed though.
