Factorio mods, much like user-generated content for games like Kerbal Space Program, allow the players to fill in the small gaps and quality of life changes on behalf of the dev team, so that they can concentrate on the bigger picture. It's not ideal, but it works, and communities like these are great at coming up with fixes and ideas the rest of the dedicated playerbase can get behind. Factorio is another early access darling as well - first appearing on the scene in 2016. The players have had half a decade now to figure out what they want, and what's needed to elevate the economic management sim to the next level. We've compiled a short list of excellent Factorio mods that we think might be of interest to veteran or even returning players. We've cherry picked some enhancement mods, some helper mods, and a couple of overhauls that provide a new fresh experience. If you haven't had any experience with modding Factorio before, we've got a help section at the bottom of the article. Enjoy! Read the rest of the story... RELATED LINKS: Industrial strategy games still aren't dealing with climate change Factorio is getting an expansion Factorio finally gets a full Steam launch, after four years of early access Industrial strategy games still aren't dealing with climate changeMar 9, 2021 - PCGamesNIn Stanisław Lem's classic sci-fi short story collection, The Cyberiad, there is a section called The Seven Sallies of Trurl and Klapaucius, two hyper-advanced robots who are so advanced they can conjure anything from technology. One of my favorite stories involves Trurl searching for a civilisation that has achieved the highest possible level of development (HPLD). To find such a civilisation, it decides it needs to find a 'wonder' or something that exists outside of rational explanation. In the end Trurl finds a cube-shaped star being orbited by a cube-shaped planet with the letters "HPLD" carved into it. The planet's inhabitants are all laying around doing nothing. Trurl wants to know why, so it builds a computer to simulate the entire universe, and after millions of attempts it gets an answer: they simply have nothing left to achieve. When I play city-building games, and especially the recent variety of factory simulators like Factorio, Satisfactory, and Dyson Sphere Program, I often think of Trurl's simulation. Each game has its own sort of end goal representing the highest possible level of development - a rocket, a space elevator, a Dyson sphere - but they all leave me feeling a little uneasy about their laser focus on efficiency above all else.

Factorio to get a big expansion pack now the full game is done, developer jobs goingFeb 8, 2021 - GamingOnLinuxWube Software have written up their plans for the future of Factorio and it sounds exciting, with it confirmed that they're looking to work on a big expansion. Read the full article here: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2021/02/factorio-to-get-a-big-expansion-pack-now-the-full-game-is-done-developer-jobs-going Factorio developer begins work on a big expansion packFeb 6, 2021 - EurogamerFactorio is getting an expansion pack. In a blog post, Factorio director and designer Michal Kovarik said this expansion will be significant enough to capture people's attention. It's too early to discuss what the expansion is, exactly, but the developers have started work on it, and "we don't think that it will take less than a year to develop". Perhaps we'll see a release at some point in 2022. Read more Factorio is getting an expansionFeb 5, 2021 - Strategy GamerAfter four years in Early Access, Factorio 1.0 launched last year - ahead of schedule, as it turns out. Version 1.1 has now arrived, and it's the final release of the game. Developer Wube Software says it's been thinking about its options for the future, and that it's decided to move ahead with creating a full-fat expansion pack for Factorio rather than a sequel or series of smaller, free updates. Wube announced the expansion in the latest Friday Facts blog post on the official Factorio website. After a brief statement explaining that version 1.1 will be the final release of Factorio, the developer turned to the future. Now that the industrial management game has launched, the studio felt it had four options: creating free updates for Factorio "forever," making a sequel, doing small DLC packs, or one large expansion. It's the last one of these options that "seems to fit the best," Wube says. "It would be one well-defined product that would be significant enough to recapture people's attention, and it would be compatible with our workflow. Technically, it would be 'just' a new version of the game, so all the infrastructure of mods being updated, multiplayer etc. would just work the same as it worked until now."
