Hello!

0.13 Progress report
I guess that not so many people really expected that the target day of the 1st of June might be the actual release day. The day was mainly a psychological trick for us to finish all the little fixes and not to start any new projects, so we might be only week or two late instead of months. We started the first multiplayer play-tests last week, but they didn't last long. After the first hour of connection issue fixes, the game desynced every 15 seconds.

The process of determinism fixing that we first experienced when stabilizing 0.11 is now well known to us. With the tools we prepared and partially explained in friday facts 63[www.factorio.com], we were able to identify and fix determinism issues much much faster than before. It took just a few days compared to several months back then. The last playtest day was 2 days ago, and we were able to play a game where Linux, Mac and Windows players were all present. It lasted a few hours and no major issues were found so we are getting there.

I also have to admit, that the discovery of http://slither.io stole approximately 2 days of our dev time, as the game is really really great :) So if you can't wait for Factorio release, I advice you to try the game in the meantime.

TL;DR
If the further playtesting goes well, the release could happen next week, but you never know....
This week we're bringing you an exciting update: the new GPU particles we've been teasing you with for the past few months! Please note that these are a work in progress, and we still have some tweaks and adjustments to make. Nearly every particle in the game has been redone and converted into GPU particles, allowing us to render many simultaneously without negatively affecting performance. We would also really like to hear your feedback and opinions on the particles, so be sure to tell us what you think in the comments or on our forums.
We're also releasing the first batch of decals along with particles today. There are now decals for missile and bullet impacts, which should make your ships and stations look much more like they’ve been through battle.
