Factorio Version 0.14.12
  • The following settings are now settable only in server-settings: allow_commands - default is "admins-only" autosave_interval - default is 10 autosave_slots - default is 5 afk_autokick_interval - default is 0 auto_pause - default is true
  • Added /toggle-heavy-mode command. It can be used to generate files that help us to investigate server in a state where all new players get a desync loop.
  • Desync reports are now much bigger, but have bigger chance of being useful.
  • Fixed trains slowly moving forward when stopped on a signal more[forums.factorio.com]
  • Hopefully fixed Lua desyncs caused by string formatting functions behaving differently on different platforms.

You can get experimental releases by selecting the 'experimental' beta branch under Factorio's properties in Steam.

another friday and another Facts. It has been 3 years already without a single friday facts missing. I didn't expect that!

32 bit
Our automated integration test count just reached 800. We have several modes to run these. One of the modes is to generate crc hash values of all the steps, which can be compared with values when the tests are started on different platform, or release type.
When doing this, I noticed that there are several problems related to difference between 32 and 64 bits and after solving few of them, I realized that doing this kind of work might be actually not useful usage of our time.

So I made a list of reasons to not have 32 bit support anymore:
  • Extra issues related to determinism between 32 bit and 64 bit systems that would have to be solved.
  • Release times (compile, upload, updates, server storage space)
  • Occasional bugs that we don't notice as no one uses 32 bit system here.
  • Confusion of some people that download 32 bit by accident and run out of memory soon.
As steam allows me to check the hardware survey of users playing factorio, I did that and found out that less than 1% of people playing Factorio have 32 bit system. That is not that much considering, that a lot of them have different device capable to run the game as well. I believe, that saving our time so we can spend it on things the 99% of our players appreciate more is the right decision.

The conclusion is to disable multiplayer in 32 bit version...

We have many professional truck drivers amongst our community. We are proud to know that those hard working men and women appreciate our games and spend their precious free time playing our World of Trucks.

This time one of our fans embarked on a journey in the opposite direction - turning from just an average player of our games to becoming a real life professional. Meet Dustin Kochara, certified truck driver!

Dustin sent us an email which has made us immensely proud:

"I currently have 197 hours logged into American Truck Simulator (loving every minute of it) your Trucking Simulators have been a huge inspiration in my Career choice, I Graduated truck driving school with a GPA of 3.6 'A' grade. I am now employed at Reddaway (A local truck driving company on the west coast of United States).

I probably would have not known that this was my dream job had i not first played your truck driving simulators, but here I am! And it's funny though, all my instructors I...
Farming Simulator Life on the Railroad in FS17!

Watch the latest Gameplay Trailer for Farming Simulator 17, and discover a new way to quickly transport large quantities of wood and grain across the new and huge environment: drivable trains.

Today's video will showcase the two train lines you can make use of as you travel along the railroads of Goldcrest Valley. Trains can be driven manually on these tracks.

The train is the fastest way to deliver your produce in large quantities. You will find several areas on the map that will allow you to stock, transfer or sell your grain and wood harvests directly from trains.

Silos hold your grain, while conveniently placed heavy-duty cranes will allow you to transfer wood between trains or unload it at the sawmill to be processed and sold.


Both lines meet at a central point in the playable area, where you will have the opportunity to transfer goods from one train to the other.

For example, you might need to transport wood across half of the map, transfer it to the second train line, then transport it the other half to Stanton Sawmill where you can process it into wood chips and sell it.

There is no risk of losing cargo, as the wagons are equipped with convenient fastening belts to ensure stability of your product.

Get on board on October...
