Space science
As you already know, in 0.15 we have reworked the science packs and added infinite science. Moreand different science packs make the game a lot more interesting. It reduces the complexity ofblue science (which is great for newer players) while adding complexity later, and you now haveto decide what to research first, especially with the more expensive game modes (which isinteresting for advanced players), and infinite science adds something to do forever in the game.


However, one of my biggest complaints about Factorio always was that the rocket has nopurpose, even though it is being propagated at all the points as the final step of the game. It issaid at the trailer, at the introduction of freeplay, and by being the most advanced research,everything seems like it’s the thing to desire, but when I launched it for the first time and seeingthe victory screen, I was feeling like "And now what...".

For me there is one main reason why Factorio is so awesome and why I can forget myselfplaying until 4 a.m., and that reason is the infinite loop of 'there is always a bottleneck', youalways need to fix something, you have not enough power, or your production of a particularproduct is insufficient etc.

SCS Software Big in America
After revealing our plans for Heavy Cargo for Euro Truck Simulator 2, we have noticed some American Truck Simulator players worrying if we are not forgetting about them.

Fear not, because we have something equally cool in the making for you!

The US regulations are different from European, calling for different axle configurations for the special transport trailers. It takes a ton of skill to master driving these monstrosities, just look at the screenshots bellow...

i know it may seem wrong to think this but i think the ea is fake atm and let me explain why , because (1) we havent had any updates of what is happening yes i understand that they are busy but im sure they have someone spare who can keep us up to date with wats going on every so many days not once a month or how ever long it is (2) and it just seems weird how we all brought the ea version and they give us a march ea time and then a (few) weeks and then we havent heard anything ever since so my question is,is there actually going to be a ea as the way i see it,it looks like there aint by the time ea is released the full complete version will be out so im actually questioning myself have i really made a bad mistake in ordering the ea or not?
