Software update: Factorio 1.1.7

Spread the love

Factorio is a ‘building and management’ game where the main character has crashed on an alien planet. The goal is to collect raw materials and process them into semi-finished products several times to eventually build a rocket that will allow you to leave the planet. More information can be found on the website of the game and also on our Forum you can visit this topic for player experiences. The developer has released version 1.1.7 in the experimental branch with the following changes:

Version 1.1.7


  • Changed wire drawing to always have the same opacity regardless of ghost/electric poles being connected.
  • More specific error message when a blueprint cannot be flipped.
  • More specific message when copy pasting spidertron with equipment grid.
