Factorio Server?

Post by Suren » Sat Jul 21, 2018 8:19 pm

Factorio Server
  • Would you like/want to play on a server that is up and running 24/7?
  • If Yes then mods?
If have more then 5 people that want to play will turn on the Factorio Server can have 2 up simultaneous running different mods or have one that is a base Factorio.

There are some problems with an "real" always running Factorio server, the first being that pollution continues to spread, and thus aliens grow / expand and become more violent. I guess you could combat this by setting it up so that aliens only attack when attacked.

For me, mods can make or break the game. I am not into the warped since of "fun" that sea block or bob's mods adds. The bare necessary mods you need (again, my opinion) are Warehouses & Long reach, and leave it the rest vanilla. Too many mods causes UPS issues, lag issues, and frankly on a big MP server it's going to frustrate people having to keep all their mods in sync - so the less the better.

I love Factorio - when I play, I PLAY. For that reason, with BFA coming out, I have to stay away from it :ignore:

I should have added that the server auto pauses when the last person disconnects, I have run one with this setting and also have a timeout for inactivity so if someone walks away while connected it disconnects them. The disconnect time can be changed so that it is longer or shorter as needed.

I am a filthy casual, but love this game. So I'd happily join in on a multiplayer game :) I've yet to play with anyone other then myself
