Dino TLC Update!

At the end of last year, we were very excited to share with you the early progress of our Dino TLC update! We know it's something you guys have been looking forward to for a long time, so here we are with another update!

The plan is for the Dino TLC pass to role out in multiple phases. Throughout the next few months, some creatures will receive visual changes, as well as functional/gameplay changes. We are targetting the release of Phase 1 to take place during the week of February the 18th. In addition to Dino TLC Phase 1, we will also be rolling out our turret limit to all Official Servers.

Today, we'd like to share some more screenshots and provide some insight into what we're planning for Phase 1 of the TLC pass! We've been reading all your feedback and suggestions regarding the creatures; our artists and gameplay team have found it to be beneficial in the decision-making process. Something to keep in mind is that not all creatures will receive a visual update, but we will cover ones we feel (with your feedback) need it. Sometimes there may be function gameplay changes which weaken certain aspects of creatures; however, if we take anything away, we always plan to add to it through another dimension.

Please remember that this is still work-in-progress (especially the fur!) and therefore will be subject to change before final release,...
The previous FFF seems to have caused quite a reaction. We had many discussions in the office regarding this topic, so this week some of us prepared some detailed responses.

Bots vs. belts aftermath
I started the article from last week saying this was mostly of a rant, so just the opinions of a player who prefers belts over bots. There was no real conclusion other than "What changes, if any, could we do to make everything more fun?".

Then I decided to make the writing more dramatic by making it look as if we plan to remove bots from the game. My intention was to create an emotional roller-coaster in order to make the FFF a more interesting read. Combined with the context of the recent nerfs, some people got very angry very fast. "Remove bots from the game" was nothing more than a thought experiment, not a proposition. Unfortunately that didn't work out as intended.

This has taught me some valuable lessons in writing, including that I should not play with people's emotions, at least not the way I did.

The reactions were very strong, from long analytical posts[forums.factorio.com], to heated but deep discussions[forums.factorio.com], to personal attacks towards me[eu1.factorio.com]. Not to mention the 46 forum pages that make that FFF the one...
We hope all of you had a good start into the new year!

With today’s update v0.1.0.2 we have fixed more bugs. As always, check the changelog for improvements, changes and fixes for bugs you have reported.

Next update:
At the moment we’re processing more bugs you have reported and prepare the next bugfix update. If there aren’t any bigger problems thereafter, the next step is the release on Steam.

Bugtracker status:
We have improved the bugtracker, it can now import threads from the forum and convert them directly into tickets. For the future it is important that every bug gets its own thread in the forum. At the moment we can’t process collected issues that are in the same topic. At this point we would like to thank you very much for the bug lists from the forum, they have been a very good overview so far. We are still working on a public list and hope to have it online for the Steam release.

Sample mods:
Due to the massive changes we had to perform on the vehicles and machines, we had to remove the sample mods for the time being. The work is almost done and we can provide you with the already released machines as ZIP files presumably next week.

We wish you a pleasant weekend!
