will rain come back I miss it so I don't we don't know uh it might not for 1.0 it might come later after 1.0 but um based on like the time we have left and the fact that we have to completely reimplement rain because the reason why rain came to be inide of factory was because I I think the way it came to be was uh we re another Studio who's also working on real engine had an implementation of rain that we could like essent essentially just steal from them and just implemented in our game because it was like pretty not Bare Bones but it worked with our system and then we just like needed to tweak a few things here and there to make it work um and in when we upgraded to under 5 that system like doesn't work at all like it's not made for um I don't remember exactly what it was that broke it but there was something in some change in onreal engine 5 that just made it not work so if we're going to have rain again we need to completely from scratch implement the system and that's not something that uh is super high priority it's it's really nice uh and if we have time to do it for 1.0 I think we will try but I don't think it will happen honestly unfortunately but maybe later I miss rain though I want rain in real life at this point it's way too hot outside no it's fine are you able to say which studio the rain came from I actually have no idea I just know that we got it from somewhere it might have been from I know we've gotten a bunch of code from the Goat Sim team but I don't think this was the case here

is there a fixed development lifespan Beyond 1.0 is there a limit on how long you'll keep working on the game uh we'll do stuff for the game after release uh we don't have any you know fixed fixed date or lifespan as in uh this year this day the game ends see yeah it's like we're still very much in the planning phase of uh you know how to turn content out in what terms the game will be moving forwards uh with you know content updates you know what encapsulates small updates what encapsulates stuff that is big enough for the game to reach an eventual 1.1 1.2 moving forwards um but we are very much at the moment in the I guess talks um again both from receiving feedback from the beta and also just with our own internal brainstorming and planning uh very much in the talks and planning of well yeah charting the cause for the game but we can tell you it does not end with 1.0 yes but we'll see it's depends on the game how the game does like if it sells well after 1.0 then you know but it also like an aspect of like what we want to do at the studio so like if nobody wants to keep working on it then it's kind of hard to motivate uh but we'll see yeah it's really undecided mhm

have the games from game Jam 24 been released yet nope unfortunately not and at this point they will not be released until after 1.0 is for the sole reason that two of them two games out of five there we go still lack uh certain crucial not content but aspects mainly credits for uh some content used in those games and uh the devs simply have no time to cram that in right in the middle of um this Dev storm of 1.0 uh and we'd rather just release all five games at once it still makes sense to us to do that uh because otherwise it just feels like the other two will be completely just you know left in the dark and just never see the daylight you

does covering pipes and belts with walls and Foundations improve FPS performance uh it's it's a hard one to answer but I don't think it does because uh it's like if you're covering it up and you want to go with uh occlusion calling then it's like yeah but we also need to run the system that checks whether it should do austion calling so like if it's faster to do Ren the if it's faster to render the pipes rather than like running the logic to check if it should render everything then it's like which one do I use like so there's no CL clear-cut answer on that question unfortunately it depends and it's really difficult to uh give advice there just build however you want man

have you also considered adding VR to the game and support for it so no we have never considered that actually there's no one at cing that's like interested in VR so like it's really hard for us to be like it could be cool to add VR but like we don't have anyone that's interested in it uh which makes it really hard to to bring it up and like no one wants to do it then we used to have a VR computer at the office that was set up and then uh that one got really dusty and eventually rip yeah and eventually just like I think we just threw that stuff out honestly like in the move when we moved office that ended up in a box that just never opened um so that's that's our hard take our very based take on VR at cof I guess is that we're just not into it but there are mods people have okay so people have always showed videos of them making mods to satisfactory with VR but I've never seen anyone release one so probably not a lot more work than than even mod M makers can afford yeah

could you add a way to skip night or day or would that ruin the lore uh this is a question that we've gotten many times throughout the years and and the answer is uh probably not we we've actually discussed this a lot internally if we were going to add like sliders or whatever to be able to set the time but we feel like we feel like the the need for people to do that kind of disappeared when we added lights to the game because people stopped complaining about that also we we've done a lot of passes on like the lighting in the game to make it more clear when it's night and stuff like that um so so no I don't think we will do that we do want people to experience the work that we've done adding nights and stuff there are mods where you can circumvent this of course but uh for the vanilla game we probably won't add anything like that

are there going to be any more destructible items on the map like those floating balloon things over crater legs so as far as I know the floating balloon things they're not destructible right now and I haven't been for a while I think we changed that and uh destructible ballons and as far as I know we probably won't make them destructible um to my knowledge at the moment but it might change for 1.0 but and this might be a late late decision sort of but as far as I know right now they probably will not be you won't be able to destroy those they they're like part of um um the silhouette of the landscape and I think when it comes to like destructible stuff this is just me guessing cuz I actually don't know this is the the sentiment uh this is my personal opinion on it but like I feel like when it comes to destroying you know the the folage that you can destroy on the map we still want to sort of maintain like the silhouette and like the the like so you can still identify you know where which biome you're in and still have like the quality of the biome so if you can just remove all the plants and trees and stuff like that it's just going to be like the landscape and that might not always be like

super visually interesting you know what I mean like so so main so like if you just wanted to erase everything on the map like then we wouldn't have spent so much time making the map the way it is like it's part of the game that you'd have to deal with the landscape and like the fact you have to deal with like all the stuff that's going on so I think we've just made the decision that like we don't want you to be able to destroy those balloon trees in the same manner like we don't want to destroy the destroy the Titan Fall the Titan forest trees you know like they're part of they're part of the map um and they're part of the the the like one of the challenges with satisfactory is building with the environment in mind and if you don't want to do that just build up above everything so uh as far as I know we probably won't make them destructible um but there'll be more info on this I think uh if if there's any info to give on this later MH

will blueprints be clown synced in 1.0 good question um we've actually talked a little about this internally um we're considering it but we also need to um be careful about it m potentially we'll see we're scared that like we'll mess up the because we have clouding for so long now and like we haven't touched that part of the build for so long so we're just scared of like diving into that again and potentially messing it up for people um that's the main reason why blueprints weren't cloud syn is because we were just worried that adding another like element to the whole Cloud syncing thing would potentially break the existing one because the blueprint system is is kind of different compared to the safe F cuz like they are session bound but at the same time they are like disconnected from the save file so like it's a weird um they live in a weird space right now um so uh it's one of those systems where like it works maybe we shouldn't touch it kind of thing especially for 1.0 cuz like it might open up a Floodgate Of other issues you know what I mean but uh I we've discussed it internally and we're going to look into it properly

would love to see a two power connection point on the manufacturer smelters and so on it would make a lot uh of a lot less of a power spaghetti because you can put the power cables in the series instead of parallel so that's not going to happen because we we've act because we're evil we've actually decided actively not decided not to do that because we feel like that's part of the log Logistics problem that you need to solve there are some people that I figured out how to work around though um where uh and I'm not going to tell you how to do it but if I were to tell you how to do it it it doesn't involve beams and it's not like you can place beams like across the buildings and then put like wall mounts next to them so you sort of serialize them um but that's illegal no one's allowed to do that so don't do that actually that's a really bad advice yeah yeah I I I shame anyone who does it or run her to the ground that's also a pretty good good one I feel like running under the ground makes it like more of a hassle when you need to like adjust on the fly but you can do that too had to around but that's this is this is part of the game right this is part of the game cuz like you're already you're already discussing like how to solve this problem and like oh there's so many different solution to this problem you know and that's sort of a satisfactory is all about so if we remove that I feel like we'd loss there'd be a loss in like this type of uh you know this type of problem solving cuz like satisfa problem solving is all I do in life please I want to play fun game no no no no no no no no no satisfactory is your second job like nobody goes to play satisfactory because like I knew it yeah this is for people that don't have you know like anything to do on their off time they just like they get want to like when they get home from work they just want to work more that's that's it's a second job that's what's playing satisfactor is like why would we take that away from people this game isn't supposed to be fun exactly that's that's essentially that's that's a really good review actually I worry for all of it's like that's that sounds like a steam review where it's like you get a positive review and it's like this game isn't fun but it's not supposed to be and like so 10 out of 10 it is adequately not fun enough I also want to mention real quick I want to [ __ ] brag here when uh when Starfield um did the thing where they would comment on negative reviews and that was picked up uh oh yeah by media I was like oh that would be funny for us to do as well like but give them like shitty responses to and then I realized I already done that and there was already an article on the fact that I had done that so like I think I think bits added me on Twitter when they made that article I was like oh [ __ ] I actually wanted to do this but I apparently already done it so I'm not very original I guess so that's that's a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy right there lightning does strike twice yeah in this case for sure boom

um you're going to add logic gates to the game I think it would be cool to build computers and there'll be videos like playing satisfactory and satisfactory so we probably won't add logic gates to the game we've had a lot of discussions back and forth about that a couple of times we've also prototyped this actually a while back and we feel that it's a bit too overwhelming for this game like in terms of what satisfactory is satisfactory is intended to be sort of a chill um like the game is complex by itself by just the Everything by itself and if we feel like if we wanted to add logic gates it should be an optional thing for the game mostly because like most players that play the game shouldn't feel like they need to use uh logic gates um and if we're adding something that's optional to the game then you know this a warrant you know the um warrant the the time that takes to implement something like that so I don't think we will it's not impossible though maybe we'll add some level of logic to it where like maybe you know one reasonable place I think where it makes sense is to have like logic gates for for um um like if you have the trains and you want to have some specific Logics so like when it unloads and loads you know that kind of stuff I think that's more in tune with the game because that's extending sort of giving you tools to extend sort of what is already in the game U but when it comes to like adding logic you know generic logic solutions and and you know where you can essentially build a computer inside satisfactory I don't think that's going to happen there's a really cool mod that's called fixing networks that I highly recommend that does this so if you're interested in that kind of stuff you do need to do like a little bit of program here and there um but uh yeah that's essentially the plan for that or not CL I guess

um it depends like maybe I I think uh we're open for the suggestion to have vertical nudging um but it has to make sense from a user experience standpoint um and uh I think there a lot of edge cases that people don't realize where vertical nudging is kind of tricky there are already a couple of edge cases that don't really work with nudging as it is right now um so yes it's the same thing like with rotation and nudging is same same thing there like if we can make it work with the user experience wise and get it figure out how to do it um cuz you can rotate some stuff while you're nudging no wait not that you're nudging um yeah I don't know we're going to investigate that I I guess I can me I can mention that we're going to investigate vertical nudging uh at some point but no promises right now okay that's all I'm going to say uh request vertical nudging wall mounted SS don't appear to have the existing limited support for vertical ning yeah it's the same thing with

any consideration of adding a map editor so um no because that is a huge undertaking and uh maybe like first of all the way the map is made in the game is not made in such a way where you can create the map without using Unreal Engine so that's one thing uh I think Tech technically we could you could create another map as a mod for satisfactory um but no one's done that and I'm assuming the reason why no one's done that is because it's too much work to get it to work um now now I'm sad thanks n it's what I live for disappointing people uh it is a huge undertaking and uh just making the map as it is for us is a huge undertaking and like most games where they have map editors what they do is they make a map editor and they make the tools for it and then they create the game using the map editor most people don't you do the back do it the other way around there is a mod map is there what's what's on it cuz I've seen one I've seen mod maps but they're just like nothing it's just a plane and like that's it what's the name of the uh what's the name of the mod all mines map uh let's see here look at that new map new terrain know all alien artifacts thank God that's pretty cool I need to check that out actually I'm kind of curious this is like the only this is like the only mod I've seen it's a new map put a ton of time into it oh I can imagine cuz we know how long it takes to make a MTH it is uh no walk in the park I need to I need to check this out actually when was this made August wait is this an American time or October cool I need to check that out actually I'm I'm really curious now curious curious um even as a snow area really has anyone made like a I need to I need to Google this on YouTube and see if anyone made like a playthrough or something using it no need to see it picture is not enough in the mod manager I need to I need to experience this cool thanks for letting me know linkit so this is the I'll post the L mod here too this is the one people are referring to I think correct me if I'm wrong oh oh I'm so sorry people that struggle are on The Struggle Bus we had to disable links on our twitch because the Bots got us

uh when are beacons going to be removed or updated it's weird to build it's weird to build them but not be able to use them as before um so tldr for those who don't know beacons like the physical beacons in the game they use like the equipment piece uh is has been deprecated from the game uh you can still craft them in the um the workshop but they've sort of been replaced by the new uh system that we have on the map which is like you can place markers on the map and and the beacons will transform into markers if you try and place them the only reason why beacons are still in the game are because of it's because of a alt recipe for Uranium peel rods I think God it's been so long since I talked about this and um that recipe I don't know when we'll switch that out but the the removal of beacons will happen when we switch that recipe out essentially um but I don't have like an ETA on when that will happen

will smart or programmable splitter ever get the option to change affect the output example changing 780 to 710 um I I like if okay I don't think we will but if we do it would be like a late game sort of thing right like it would be one of the last like things you can unlock in the game because a huge aspect of the game is that like the whole balancing and ratio and figuring that stuff out like that's huge part of the game and like solving that like logistical problem um you can sort of work around it with like setting factors and stuff like that but we feel like the belts have a much bigger effect when it comes to L Logistics handling and and if we make the gim like too streamlined then um a big chunk of the challenge is sort of gone but but we do see that people want this and uh you know it's not let like we we're not like super stubborn we're stubborn in certain aspects but we have changed our minds in a couple occasions you know know like we've added stuff that people requested and then we were like uh maybe not but then we changed our minds and I think this might be one of those things for it's possible we sh we might add something like this uh maybe we'll add it to like the pro programmable splitter for instance um because I don't think there's too much of a difference between the smart splitter and the program splitter and like move it back and you get it later or something like that but I don't know this is just like me guessing but if you want to see that please upload the Q site and let us know um but as far as I know we probably won't do anything like that so I'm sorry I led you all on it's like this hypothetical train that I just put you guys on and then be like but it's got It's not going anywhere

uh does it bother you to answer the same uh Question Time After Time by the way how about vertical nudging no it actually isn't uh it actually isn't annoying or anything like that uh it doesn't bother me either because the thing is like a lot of people it would bother me if it was the same person asking over and over again but that's not really the case in a lot of these times like there's there's so many people that show show up and and come and go um like every stream I can see I don't know you guys can see that but I think like every stream there's always a bunch of new uh firsttime Chatters uh there's a lot of them so like I think a lot of for our stream a lot of people tend to tune in and tune out a lot um and it's not not really realistic to like expect that like everyone knows everything we've said um and it's just sort of something you have to accept as a community manager or like anyone in communication really is like there's no no there's no way to reach everyone in any communication aspect um and you just sort of and like trying to get around that and be like no but we have to figure out way to reach everyone and like you know be as clear as possible like then you're just sort of creating issues through yourself you sort of need to like expect that like okay all not not everyone's going to see everything all info so we really have to like take all the meses we can to make sure that like we can work around that as much as possible and having to answer the same question over and over again um it's kind of part of that like if that if that's something that bothers someone then they probably shouldn't be in that position you know what I mean um as to Vertical nudging I don't think it's going to happen honestly like I I think um I spoke to some of the people designing nudging and there are like no easy there are a couple of there are a lot of edge cases where vertical nudging wouldn't work and like we couldn't apply it in as like a general case uh especially not for like buildings stuff like that technically one thing that someone pointed out is technically we do have vertical nuding because if you place a power connector on a wall then it's vertical nudging so we already have it so I'm going to mark that question is answered uh We've implemented it and uh we're good to go all right fantastic next question

how is the update onreal Engine 5 transition overall did it bring what it was expected how was the UI uh dev's communication would you recommend other Studios to make that transition oh boy I don't know if we we haven't fully recovered from it yet I think um we have had a discussion with epic in regards to the changes that we have made um and like what it was like for us and and what we like so we've given them feedback on it overall um I don't know if I'm in a good position to give like everyone at the Studio's opinion on it because I actually don't know everyone at at the Studio's opinion um I only know like a couple of people's uh Choice like views on it um so like update okay so I'll give just G so here's my opinion on it this is this is my view on it I don't know so disclaimer here I don't know if this actually reflects on how everyone feels like Cain in regards to this this is just my personal uh opinion on it okay my hot take okay so I think the I think we we now are starting to see sort of the the benefits of it it's taken us more than a year actually we started in like January to do the the migration uh a little bit earlier than that we started doing a little bit of a check-in but it's taken a long us a long time to do the migration and there's been a lot of work that's gone into obviously the migration itself but also like you know implementing stuff that already worked before then um there were a lot of things that we actually always wanted to rework like the vehicle system for instance we always wanted to fix the vehicle system and that would entail us rewriting things anyways so like it came with a bunch of musts in terms of of work that got that were tied to like our Tech Deck per se that we could have you know pushed and maybe potentially never do um so like in that regard it's pretty good that like we did do the update um that we actually you know had to implement some things again uh that's not to say that I think there are issues with the current version as well like there were things um that worked before that don't work now um but I mean we'll probably get around to fixing some of that stuff um and and like I said I I'm I like now we're starting to see sort of the benefits of some of the crates um but it's like if epic hadn't put out the the next couple of updates to Unreal Engine like one and two um the migration would not have been worth it I think so like we definitely needed to go to this version at least uh to get the benefits out of it you know like we don't I don't feel like Unreal Engine was for in our use case was in production ready until 5.2 um due to the issues that we saw people having um and I guess like a lot of stuff is like we wouldn't know until we put on experimental anyways and at that point we're already so deep that it would be like such a sunk cost fallacy and that was the big risk of doing this it was a huge risk doing the migration and I think we were a little bit optimistic actually about the migration uh I think I think we I don't think we anticipated we anticipated a lot of issues but we got even more issues than we anticipated getting and and we anticipated not knowing how many issues we were going to get and we got even more than that so like I think it was a little bit optimistic for us to to make that call and and I think I don't think enough people were involved in that decision um potentially um but I think things are going to work out um it's definitely given us a lot of tools to utilize now to improve the game and do things with the game that we didn't think we were going to be able to do um but like as to like how I would recommend other Studios to make that transition I it's so hard because it really depends on the game on the game that you're making um I think in satisfactory case it made sense doing it but I think there are a lot of games where it doesn't make sense to do it um we have made a lot of engine modifications and I think if games if a lot of other games have made a lot of engine modifications like the more engine modifications you make the less uh recommended I think this upgrade would be for them um I think it makes more sense to like make a game from scratch in five than to migrate in certain and uh there are certain games that have made semi migrations for it but I don't know it's it's been one of the toughest calls for us to to make um and I think it's going to pan out but that's my opinion I think if I think definitely think if you ask some people at the studio they might disagree with me completely actually I feel like it was a it was not the best call but um we're here now and I think that's what matters most

[Laughter]

I wonder if the reason why we have one I believe is is because of user experience it's a user experience thing uh where if we had more then people might misunderstand how the swatches work when you just have one that's like custom which should never change um then the intention isn't for you to use them as a Swatch like the intention is we used to use that as a the custom color um it might not be super clear I might need to update like the wording maybe a little bit but uh maybe we could have more than one Swatch I think it's a design decision right now not having more than one setting uh it might be um there might be some saving thing where like we own it's like hard limited but um please update on the QSI if you want to see more swatches specifically for the custom color or more or more swatches in general because I think originally we did have a limit on how many swatches we could have in the game and I don't know if that limit is still there it's possible that that it's still there because of the way we instance the meshes in the in the in the game but I think we're using the primitive data structure now for everything so it might not be an issue but um let us know in the giveaway side uh what you prefer and we'll see what we can do but I I think there's a limit right now as to how many swatches we have be nice to have a name swatches that's another thing I think that's just a UI thing um and or safe structure or something and it might be that like that is so much work for something that's like you don't gain too much from so like you might not be super high prioritized but please let us know in the Q website so we can look into that because I've heard people ask about that

is crab all still on Ice How likely is it to come into the game or when do you have a uh like when you really finally decide for it I think it's still on Ice yes uh I haven't actually talked about that with the the production crew yet um I'm not sure I don't I don't know if it will make it and actually to be honest uh we will probably address this in a video at some point talk about this because I think this is like one of the like we've said we've tried to be very like upfront with you guys as to like what we plan to do and what actually will come to the game and uh sometimes our planning just falls short because of we don't have time or for other reasons and we've been quite upfront with you guys that's like when we will and we won't do stuff I think the crab boss has been one of those things where we were really sure for a long time that we were going to add that um but also at the same time now that we're looking at it and like figuring out like what 1.0 really needs um it's like do we do we live up to the promise of like a less than one second clip from my one of our trailers to add something to the game um or do we focus on other things so that's sort of the discussion that's happening with the crowd boss in particular I think it would be cool to have it in the game but I wonder how much it adds I think also one thing that is good to know is that when we started making satisfactory I think we had a bigger end goal with like the creatures and the combat era game and like the survival aspect of the game and that's we've been working on this in Early Access we sort of realized that this isn't the core pillar of the game really it's like especially when we were doing the the weapons and the creature changes for for update six and five or something or six or seven we've also realized that like people are really interested too much in in that aspect it's like it's it's cool that it's refreshing but if we if we wanted to actually make a huge difference we need to actually take a huge check back and rework how the creatures will work and that's not really interesting for us I think it's more interesting for us to work on Factory stuff than combat stuff and rather make you know and we tried to make combat more like diverse rather than like you know more involved I think the crab boss is one of those things where we had one Vision how we wanted to come back to be in the game and we had an idea of what we wanted a crab boss to be and how that would work in the game and I don't know if it really aligns with how we see the game right now so that's why the crab boss has been on ice for a while because we sort of realized that like maybe this wasn't what's important for the game um but I think it would be cool to have it and I think I don't think I think that's why we haven't scrapped it at this point because we did scrap a couple of other creatures that we were going to do that we haven't unveiled at all actually um but we decided that like it's better to do put focus on other things with the game rather than that element because there weren't really that many people that were super into when we updated the creatures and stuff like that and the combat um so that's why that's the state of the crab boss at least I'll address this more properly when we know more on this topic because I think uh I think it's a bit like one thing that's always been super important for us when we were working on this game in Early Access is that we are very upfront that's like what we do and don't and what we plan like what we would like but not what we can do and I think they're crab boss the fact that it was in a trailer sort of signifies that like this is going to be in the final game at some point and now we're sort of potentially stepping back on that one aspect and hopefully you guys will understand why and I might be feel a bit frustrating that we have been talking about this for so long saying like there was going to be a crab boss in the game and then suddenly at the end when we're closer closing into 1.0 we're like we're not sure if that's gonna be a thing um so uh I'm not sure if there's a good solution here that everywhere everybody wins but that's that's the that's the rationale behind it at least like I said I'll probably talk more about that in an upcoming video where we can actually um I think flesh out this topic a little bit more but that's the state of things right now at least

given the popularity of lumen have you guys changed your stance on off officially supporting it or will it remain an experimental feature it has not changed our stance uh because it's purely our stance is purely out of like a protection aspect so like it's too much time um to to like completely revamp the lighting for the game the lighting that we worked on up until this point um you know and still aren't done with so so that's that's uh the main reason it's like a production cost thing but I think we have tweaked a little bit here and there so like it's not like I talked about this a little bit on last stream where you know what's to deal with saying it's not officially supported but you do have it in the game like there there's a little bit of like when we have time we'll tweak a little bit of Lumin I know that we added support for some of the lights to be able to add it to Lumen now as well where whereas before they weren't added it was just the emissive material but now actually lighting is also affected in Lumen so like here and there we'll tweak a little bit for Lumen but the overall all lighting for the game isn't made for luin in mind and that won't be the case for satisfactory uh as far as we see things now it might be changing in it might change in the future but right now our stance is that we probably won't do it but who knows who knows

uh will the game eventually feature Workshop support for mods I don't think we will but it's not impossible I think that the reason why we wouldn't want to do that is because we have the game on Epic as well and we don't want to play favorites so um I believe epic has a version of Workshop as well like they have their own like mod I can't remember what it's called but they have their own thing uh and I think the The Annoying Thing for our mod creators is that they would need to like re-upload the same mods into different storefronts or two different like places and the way that it works right now with the mod manager I think we're quite um we quite like the way this is handled at the moment and I think it's better for the community overall that it's managed this way that's not to say that we won't do either um I think this is still a little bit Up For Debate internally as well what we want to do but um I think a lot of people have been using the model manager I think a lot of people really like the mon manager I think the the open development of the mod manager and SLR and uh sorry the s what's it called the the mod injector thing um SNL no uh I I think that just the modern community in general have been amazing and uh we definitely want to support those people uh to the best of our ability um so but we'll see what what the like situation will be like once the game is out fully

what happens in the future since there are a handful of buildings that are not symmetrical will we ever be able to flip buildings like in Captain of industry we don't currently have plans for that and I don't really have a good reason as to why we just don't have plans to do that because it entails a lot of work that we don't feel really adds too much to the game at the moment so and it's it's not just a thing that we can just like whip out and have it working there's actually a lot of work involved in making sure that works fine so uh kudos to them for doing it but um at the moment we don't plan to do it what is a bug that you

this game are there any plans to include larger blueprint designers we are quite happy with the size of the blueprint designer that as it is right now it sort of serves the purpose that we were after which was not to just make the factory being faster to build which they are a fashion to build if you set up the blueprint designer correctly but we also wanted to add like an element of like you know a little bit of a puzzle where people had to figure out like how to adapt their blueprints to make sense in the designer so they can also use them in their factories so it wouldn't just be like a you know copy and paste of factors you already built because we feel like that would have taken out a big portion of the game um I still like the size of the blueprint designer right now we're not against changing it but I think right now we're quite happy with it and given the feedback we've gotten so far it seems like it's actually a pretty decent size but we'll see what we do in the future if we change our minds or whatever like that's happened before so uh I guess we'll see what happens what's

wise will there ever be Mark 3 or mark IV fluid pipes no because we're sort of at the limit with Mark's Mark II actually even with Mark II it doesn't fully fully fully work there's a couple of like edge cases where sometimes you can get a little bit less than 600 like you you can't always expect to get a full like 600 um and out of the pipes and this is based on like all a bunch of factors like frame rate and stuff like that and we we hope to fix that stuff for my two pipes so that they will be fully 600. I don't think you need to worry too much about this unless you're optimizing like perfectly 100 using utilizing pipes but in the future this shouldn't be an issue and but the the addition of a Mark 3 and 4 is right out that's not happening are you planning to add a logic system and

are there any plans for a factory monitor screen where you can see the efficiency of how full buffers Etc are of buildings we would like to think but I don't know if if we actually have planning to implement it it's it's a little bit more complicated than we initially thought when we started implementing this and I know I know there's a mod that does something similar but I think what people are asking for is like more complex with like the whole Factory setup um and uh we haven't really had time to dive into that and it's not currently planned but if there are enough uploads on the QA side I'm sure we'll take that into consideration

well the game support direct storage now if it will support direct storage I don't know if we find that it's suitable for our game then maybe because that's not that's not always I I see this a lot by the way it's it's like really hard to comment on this but like it's uh epic has like and this is the same thing with I think this is mostly Nvidia um but like there are so many different Technologies when it comes to computer rendering and apis and some for some reason some of these Technologies get like a lift in the in the public eye um with like for some people's people for some reason some people find certain aspects of these Technologies and like uh algorithms or techniques very interesting and they get like a little bit of like um um like they get free marketing essentially um some like most techniques they use for for computer Graphics specifically are not suitable for everything there's a ton of ways you can do the same thing in different ways and um it doesn't always solve like there's no one solution solves everything I know a lot of people think that if you just have dlss it will solve a lot of problems with games uh and that's not really true and um for some reason epic have been very good at this and also Nvidia uh to like make it sound super people get super hyped to hear that like games support dlss even though there might not be a significant difference for most people anyways um so like but it's fine to ask like if we're going to support specific technology or whatever it is I'm not on that stuff but it's really hard to say what like this is the case for Unreal Engine fives as well we're like there's a lot of cool stuff in real land in five there's a lot of cool techniques but it's not always suitable for uh all games and and like for instance nanite is is like not not every game is going to take advantage of that um um um so uh uh I don't remember what my point of this was but uh yeah if it makes sense for our game then we'll probably support it um we typically don't just like go and like what's the latest thing let's Implement that um it depends in some cases you can even get worse performance with like the LSS uh but nobody talks about that because it really depends like that's the thing anyways

will there be energy sources like I don't even know what this is photovoltaic or wind power wind power no definitely not I don't even know what the other one is uh solar power nope um no like green energy is planned and the reason for that is because we've tried that when we were prototyping the game and when you have like the interesting thing with power in our game how we feel it is that there's always like something you need to deal with you know so we call we have to deal with water and that whole process and with the fuel it's like producing the fuel with nuclear it's handling the the waste for nuclear so like we don't want power to be free in the game and when you just have like wind power and when it's all by like placement of wind power you it's like you get it for free geothermal generators are sort of our answer to that uh they're a bit weird albeit and they're like there's only a limited amount of them um we probably will rebalance a little bit how they work because not a lot of people using them um and even then they have like this cyclical like they they don't have constant energy so you want to use like power storages and stuff like that anyways wind power and that stuff is isn't interesting to us because we don't feel like it adds any interesting challenges to the game but uh water power like turbines on on like we need to place them on like waterfalls and stuff like that could be interesting because then there's not too many places we can do that um question is how much does it actually add to the game because when you're at the point when you can use water power like what are you gonna it's like it's it's gonna be a similar problem geothermal I think like I don't know how many people are actually going to use it more than it's being English just a cool thing um so that's the that's the that's the reason why we won't add power like that

will there be upgrades to machines like Mark II and Mark 3 no because if we do upgrade some machines we feel like we would want them to sort of look different and not just be like it's just a better machine because like that's what overclocking is for it's it's like you can almost see overclock as a Mark II in Mark III

[Music]

um so we don't want to go down that route because it means more work for us if we want to add like more buildings and we feel like it doesn't won't really add too much we'll just move the goal posts because it's like why not a Mark III why not Mark four why not Mark five on a mark six keep going um so it's not really something we want to pursue

longer have it lifts for trains longer Bell placing a lot of these things are sort of just suggestions for the game uh and I think it's okay to ask these questions but I think the the important thing to understand is that um so we've got the QA site questions.satisfactoryinggame.com you can leave your suggestions there as well as bugs and stuff like that and that like asking for like new features on the stream all we can kind of do is like acknowledge your question right but I can't like say hey yeah yeah I'll I'll go tell the team the community manager will go tell the team now to to make this feature it doesn't work that way like the only way new features will get through is that if your requests get to the team and the best way to get that to the team is um uh through the QA site you can still you can still put them here because there's there's like a another benefit here is that like if a lot of people in chat request the same thing then like then we can go to the team and be like hey a lot of people are requesting this thing right so that that can be useful in that sense but if a lot of people are requesting on the QA side as well the same message it gets across yeah so just uh letting you know so you can just consider the best way to get your ideas to the team um but the QA State definitely is the best way to go I personally don't mind I don't mind if people ask questions here about like features it's just I can't give a satisfying answer and then so I think of you guys and I'm like oh maybe it doesn't feel good to get like a really you know crappy answer which is just like go to the QA site or I guess that sounds cool but I can't do anything with it you know

how feasible is it for satisfactory to be multi-threaded uh so it is it is multi-threaded um but I guess what you're asking is like can you multi-thread just the factory right um and that that's the hard part I'm not really sure I I'm not familiar enough with the system to know how feasible it is but I can tell you now that the programmers on the programming team are much more capable than I am uh and if they haven't immediately found a way to make that multi-threaded um I would I would be hard-pressed to think that there's a way to do it or at least not a way that either is very hard to do or comes with its own downsides right that maybe make it not feasible but yeah

when are multiplayer bugs going to be addressed is that something that's even going to make it into 1.0 so I think the the first thing is the framing of the question doesn't make sense when are multiplayer bugs going to be addressed there are so many different kinds of bugs that can happen some of them are things that we need to fix in the game so and some of them like some connection issues are things that have nothing to do with our game at all and they can be affected by your your just local network settings your firewall things like that I actually have done so much so much support tech support stuff directly with people over email and DMs and so many more I've helped so many people with multiplayer issues and I would say over 50 of the issues are are like they're they're not they're not they're nothing to do with us there's nothing we can do about them like I've had people with um they've hard-coded host files to redirect epic um for whatever reason and now they're not getting any traffic when playing multiplayer right I've obviously had um like router issues people who haven't like added things to firewalls so like it's really hard if you saw like what when are multiplayer bugs gonna be fixed it's like which bugs are we talking about not only that um it can differ again if you're on dedicated server or single player but the the short answer the question is multiplayer bugs in general are going to be fixed um and they are fixed all the time we address them on with almost every update um now sometimes more things might be added uh and maybe we don't fix the the bug that you're having but we do fix them um but yeah there's going to be a lot of time and effort that will go into that stuff um going forward but I think some of it is is a bit of a lost cause um at the moment when we're changing the game a lot because if we're going to be making changes to the game that's just going to break multiplayer even if we fixed it before so it's a matter of prioritization I've made a whole video on this um of how we prioritize bugs because if we go and try and fix every single bug that every single person has it will just break the second we touch the game again and then we have to do all of that again so it's it's really hard to answer the question because there's so many layers to it it's like there are bugs that aren't our responsibility there are bugs that have been fixed before but broke again there will be bugs in multiplayer with new features that we add that we can't fix now because we haven't added the features um but the team works on bugs multiplayer bugs they do that's all we can that's all we can say really and so if that's going to make it into 1.0 it's it's made it already um the game is infinitely more stable in multiplayer now than it would have been if we hadn't done any of the multiplayer bug fixes that we've done this entire time so we're working on it

uh have you tested ue4 saves on the ue5 build and seen improve uh FPS improvements um we have tested yeah we've tested both safes that were before and then we made an update uh for update God damn it's so confusing when when I read those out loud um I'm not sure what this what the state of performance is actually um I've played I played on my saves and I haven't noticed a significant change um I haven't noticed anything so but these are anecdotal evidence like which are the best kind of evidence um so I don't know I don't know what the state is actually but the the general like feel like the general idea we had was when we're working on this stuff is like you probably won't see too big of a difference or you might even see worse performance in this update because we are switching to like a new engine version but in the future we set it set ourselves up so that we have now possibility to like grow with the new engine and like update it um so like there are a lot of possibilities now that weren't available to us in unrealand and four but are now in five uh so in the future we can get bigger improvements uh hopefully that's a long oh man he's really gopherd that's a long that's a long lizard doggo holy nailed it it's perfect no bad 10 out of 10. it's like we're it's like we're there oh no wait what no

how many Easter eggs are not found yet so I whoa pin weird pin just pinned nothing all right anyways um I'm not sure actually how many Easter eggs are not found anymore because we did a video a while ago where we're like this one Easter egg that people didn't find and then like two two days after that they're like oh I found it um so uh I don't know like I haven't checked the week in a while actually if they're if they're keep still updating that for the all the Easter eggs and whatnot but there's also probably a lot of Easter eggs that I don't know about that may or may not have been discovered so I don't know maybe every Easter egg is discovered or maybe there's like one Easter egg that no one's discovered yet I don't know we'll have to see

and we're planning to add a twitch integration where chat could spawn items and things so I love that idea I think the the there is a mod I think that somebody made I don't know if it was publicly made or not but uh there was a mod that somebody made where you could spawn like mobs uh into the game and I personally love that I think it's it's so much fun there's also like the one that Andrew has where like it's it makes you like rotate I think Taco has that as well where like it'll make you force rotate around 360 Degrees randomly and then like it will deconstruct something um that one's so mean but uh I love the like that uh I wish we could do more like that but it's it's always like a you know do we do that or do we do you know whatever cool feature that that we have in store you know it's always like a planning thing um and it's it's always sort of it's difficult to uh to be like yeah but the twitch thing though yeah but the other thing though like yeah yeah yeah justifying you know adding stuff like that yeah I think people are interested but yeah we're just more interested in like other things for the game we have a huge list of things we want to implement so like yeah and we'll probably never get through it all yeah

would love videos of Hannah doing design work on maps yeah I think I think Hannah's work is like one of the most uh visually interesting ones to watch because like I remember we did that that stream way back when and people really enjoyed it um I don't know I think yeah I mean more so than like programming and things like that who knows but um it's it's also just really difficult I think that the trickiest thing with that kind of thing is how do we keep things under wraps and not leak anything while doing it right so like even when we did that stream with Hannah a few weeks back um you know like you don't have to crop the scream a bunch and make sure that certain elements weren't going to pop into the screen while he was uh doing that um because even though we weren't showing anything that could leak it's like our asset Library you know might might showcase something that we don't really want to be showcased we don't want to reveal like motorcycles yeah yeah exactly or golf balls yeah yeah we're fishing golf ball yeah more check marks but that's an actual thing though oh yeah yeah yeah that's actually coming yeah that's coming thank you

uh plant any plans for underwater stuff like anything at all gameplay uh no plans no plans for underwater stuff um one of the reasons is uh again so like with a lot of game stuff if you offer a specific feature you need to support it and you need to justify its existence right um and right now if we offer any underwater stuff we then need to support underwater stuff which means we need to craft an entire world for underwater stuff and I don't know if you've noticed but we haven't even finished crafting the main world yet so uh saying that we're gonna do more underwater stuff would likely require that kind of work and so we're just kind of not touching it right now yeah so there's no plans for it at this stage as far as I know

[Music]

main World side World confirm we're not done with the main world so we're not gonna have a side world I don't want underwater stuff just to be able to dive why if there's nothing underwater just because it's cool to dive but see the thing is if we give you even the dive mechanic right then that that's that suggests that we hear me within this that suggests that we support the act of diving and exploring underwater that's what it communicates to the player right and and then it's like well then we need to support and justify it right I don't know does that that's that's what I think in my brain underwater crates okay there's a good reason there's a good reason or or maybe some other solution for the crates vanilla bean is especially good yeah that's what subnautica is for it's true I have said that before you know it's like I've done the whole uh what is it like a missile is not is is precisely where it is so they're not where it's not or whatever you know a game is only what it is and it's not what it's not um and our game is not an underwater game but there are games that are underwater games now maybe so you can build underwater hmm I mean request it suggest it suggest on the QSI I think there's Arguments for and against you can already build underwater just use foundations to force yourself under I remember an old time um way back when when I was programming on satisfactory uh I remember there being a um this energy thing when you were swimming in the water and if you were in the water for too long your energy ran out I think you just drowned uh foreign

why doesn't the coffee spill out of the coffee cup the reason is because it's not coffee I said it it's not it's not coffee it is a viscous um uh material that is between solid and liquid um it is also magnetic it is ferromagnetic is that a word is a ferromagnetic viscous material substance that is held into the into the cup into the mug yes it is a non-Newtonian fluid that is held into the Cup by a large magnet at the bottom that's why

[Music]

I mean there's enough coffee in the material to legally call it coffee all right it's like some grains kind of put in there there's gonna be heavy cup yeah foreign fluid ferromagnetic yes a word excellent thank you I mean of course it is

furry fluid can we get a coffee machine in the hub that'd be cool what if like what if the coffee cup right you could sip it like there's like there's like five sips or something and it gives you a bit of Health maybe movement speed right and then it's empty and every time you go back to the hub you can refill it wouldn't that be fun I think I ought to be sick yeah you got like a temporary like uh you're like oh man I got a big jump coming up and then you it's and then you have you have your Blade Runners on at the same time I think that'd be fun coffee stands for a complete organic geez voice crack going through puberty right now complete organic fuel for everyday energy yeah

any updates on an engine switch so this is something that we've talked about before in the past uh I don't mind talking about it again actually because I mean it is it is interesting but uh so the game at the moment runs on under 114 and there is an Unreal Engine five and uh it is technically possible for us to switch using Unreal Engine 5. um but there's there's a lot of reasons why I mean there's a lot of reasons why we don't want to do that but also a bunch of reasons why it would be good to do that um first of all first of all you dog is losing his um first of all we don't necessarily get um nanite and Loom and all that stuff out of the box uh the game is not built for that in mind and um so so that's one thing if we were to move Zone run into five another really big problem with unrealm 5 is that the physics engine that they that we're using currently is deprecating unreal and five so we would need to like implement all the physics in the game from scratch and that is no that is no small thing that's no small feature um the one thing though with doing that though is it is kind of like tempting though because the the the new engine the physics engine that only identify uses I mean is should be better than the one we have right now and it would also fix a bunch of stuff potentially that we wanted to fix in the future anyways and that's specifically related to to Vehicles so the way Vehicles work in the game right now is a little bit weird and we believe that if we were to move to chaos they would actually fix a lot of that stuff but that would also mean that we would need to re-implement all the vehicle physics from scratch and start from not from scratch but ish so yeah yeah the dog is losing his right now I don't know what's going on um full doggo alert dog dog always warning us not to move to Oregon engine five um but there's there's a bunch of other tools too it's not not just the physics there's a bunch of other tools in order to identify that would be really interesting but uh we even we've been sort of dabbling in with thought of moving for a long time and it is a huge project to do that so I yeah we will see what happens essentially whether we do it or not uh we have been investigating and sort of working on that at the sidelines while we're also working on other things and um whether we do a migration or not is still sort of yeah we'll we'll see what happens save for after the release like if we do it it should it's good if we do it before release honestly um because we the the thing that would kind of rule like if if we do the switch to 105 and it and like the game sort of feels different you know it's kind of weird to do that after we release the game already uh uh but at the same time it might also be the case where a lot of the the like are how we work with the game like our our regular you know day-to-day life like working on the stuff like a lot of stuff would probably break and we don't know what will break um so like the whole process of working in the game will also change I think quite drastically um so yeah if you want to join five I guess we're just going to need to make an entirely unsatisfactory but I think like if if we do the switch don't random five I think we would like to do it before 1.0 is is my take on it um but we will see I I think if we do the switch we'll probably announce it in some way and talk about it publicly because I don't think um like I think here me explaining what the because like what the difference is for you like if we do a switch it's not necessarily that everyone would notice honestly um

[Music]

so so yeah that it is what it is and and but also if no one knows this then maybe there's no point in explaining it but it what if the game is already on Android and five huh and you guys did just didn't know huh huh you ever thought of that anyways a lot of woof Saints is my daughter distracting it would 115 physics my gall fusible yes that is the one thing that's stopping us from making golf that's why it's never happening when roughly would would have wow she's so vocal today I don't think she's ever been this vocal before uh when roughly would you have a no-go decision to make the switch that's a good question actually um sometime before 1.0 I guess if we do it with enough time for us to fix like all the issues that I would cost because if we do make a switch there's going to be a ton of bugs that like didn't exist in the game before the switch probably uh most likely better Vulcan supportive switch uh that's a maybe possible say breaks as well maybe uh no because the the the safe system that that's in the game that's completely custom made by us so so like that would not change at all actually I mean unless there's the system that changes that depends on like something with the safe system but they wouldn't break the save files they would just break like that thing and that's in the past it's been fairly easy to fix those kind of issues um we might end up in situations with a little bit like awkward like if you guys remember there was a time when one of the foundation pieces was incorrectly uh had an incorrect origin so like we had to rotate it which meant that if you've built with that incorrectly Rose headed piece when we fixed it it would rotate back I know that totals save file was kind of ruined by that because he was in that awkward in between time when he was using the new the old like the the broke quote-unquote incorrect rotation and then we switched it and then we had migration code for it but I think he managed to be like in this perfect spot where he was building between or after one of the migration periods anyways um I I don't think say false Arc to I wouldn't be too worried about that for if we did make an engine change but there's also a lot of assumptions you know making making that kind of change

do you have any plans to improve replayability randomizing map creating etc for the final release of the game uh right now I don't think there are plans for it now this is going to be kind of weird right because like most people here have played the game for hundreds of hours or many people have played for hundreds of hours maybe even thousands of hours um and so whilst one could imagine that there could be better replayability features in the game we also think that the game actually is fairly replayable uh there's a lot of there's a lot of game time in here and so um I actually challenged the question of whether or not we need more replayability since like or not that we need it or not but it's like how big of a concern is replayability not maybe not really that big since people routinely play hundreds of hours of our game uh and and maybe our attention should be focused Elsewhere on other design problems having said that though uh randomizing nodes and things like that could be really sick I think may may be doable as a game mode who knows um it's definitely something that has been considered it's it's feedback that has been heard and um like my opinions here of like maybe we don't need it is not me mimicking uh things other people have said that's just like my actual just genuine personal opinion um and that there is probably interest in in having that happen in the game so it could happen who knows but I just I just challenged the question a little bit like how big of a problem is replayability really um you can kind of argue that there is a lot of replayability in the same sort of like when you say replayability you think like oh start from scratch again but I feel like you are kind of doing that constantly when you're like refactoring Factory builds if because you kind of need to in a lot of cases or you know you're building sort of the same if you build like one steel factory and like now I got all the basic steel and then you're like but then I want to make Parts out of that stuff then oftentimes you make a new steel factory you know like so you kind of like re replaying the game by itself and if we were to randomize the nodes how much replayability does that offer right so like let's say for example where I would normally get some oil it's now in a different place on the map yeah so I run the oil to where I want it to be because that's the end of the randomization uh that's that's all it made me do is I ran it from one place to another place and then now the game is the same as it was before I guess I guess the the difference is that like you have to solve a different type of logistic problem if like you have say that if you randomize all the nodes and then all the oil notes are on one side of the map and then all the coal is like in a completely different that creates like a bigger Logistics problem than what we've designed for you know yeah so like I guess that adds a little bit of replayability in that sense but also at the same time you know how much actual like replayability does it actually yeah exactly trains I mean that's exactly what I'm yeah I mean because because y'all like in the game as it is right now you'll solve those logistical issues anyway yeah um so if we move the nodes around maybe you would have to solve them an extra time but you would solve it in the same way it would just be it would it would kind of be the same thing I don't know I don't know just my thoughts just my thoughts yeah I am a sucker for randomization though in general me too me too uh and like I mean I I think I think there's probably more a little bit more value if we could randomize the location of the nodes and have them like appear in really funky places you'd be like well okay there's oil notice on top of this mountain uh you know like I mean stuff like that could be kind of fun as like a game mode yeah but yeah I don't know what's possible in the game uh and I don't know what the rest of the team kind of impedance on that yeah it's kind of fun if like you randomize and you get like you start off like here's a great starting area but there's a uranium node that's going to kill you every time I try to pull them through it yeah

wouldn't it be better for fix it to send additional resources up the space elevator rather than for scrap in the sink so there's an important distinguished meant no it's important to distinguish that Fixit doesn't need the the stuff the parts that you're putting in the sink uh the the stuff you put in the sink those are for research there's like they don't actually use the parts but the parts you do set up in the space elevator that goes into project assembly those are used for something exactly and the other thing is with the stuff that gets put in the sink for research gets ground grounded up right because to get the atoms so it's you can't use it anymore right otherwise you can't get that information obviously I mean we all know that right yeah but then the other thing is like with the space elevator uh there's only so much room up there right and then like if they need to transport stuff like that's like Fuel and fuel costs are honestly ridiculous these days so we can't just put everything up there right it's going to cost fix it way too much money thank you that's the official answer uh foreign

here's okay I think this is this question is always interesting when people ask it is it bad if you mod satisfactory no that's it that's the tweet I we I actually get this question surprisingly often or like people often ask us like what do you think about mods and stuff like that uh I I don't know like where the sentiments that game devs reject mods or like our anti-mod so whatever or like if maybe there isn't one maybe just like made up that people think that way but uh but we're super pro mods we're super pro the the modding community that we have we think they're making doing amazing things and we are trying to support them as much as we can the game doesn't have official mod support but that's something that we really hope we can have it someday some point and I mean we kind of do have mods support in the sense that like we are trying to be you know as helpful and like trying to do as much as we can for people making mods for the game so I can understand it from a game Dead perspective if you're making like a competitive game where mods can where you're cheating essentially that's a huge problem um but like when it comes to like the longevity of the game or even when people are making features that we wanted to to make and like try like it's it's super awesome because I would get can confirm like whether or not we were right on our assumptions that like this was good or not and for those people that want that ability to to do X or Y they can install the mod so I I don't know like we're I don't know where I don't know why people game like I don't know why that the idea that game does don't like mods I don't know where that's coming from I I would per if I made my own game and somebody modded it I would be super stoked about that uh uh so yeah is it is it bad if you mod satisfactory no keep going in fact check out the modding Discord and see if if you know someone can help you out or or if you need help or anything like that mods are making some amazing things

but um this question which I think I've answered a couple weeks ago maybe is CSS floating Slash playing with another game or concept um and the answer for the most part I believe is no I think I've I think I've heard of some people have come up with some ideas but that's just like naturally what game developers will do and maybe they've documented some of their ideas but I don't think that like we're gonna I mean yeah right now we're focused on satisfactory we can't really be thinking about another game uh and I think that and this is my personal opinion but I think regardless of what we do whenever we wrap up with satisfactory or move on or whatever whatever that looks like whenever that is um I hope that the process of thinking of a new game happens at that time and not before it because I think there's a lot of people who have a lot of input and a lot of creativity who aren't spending that on uh coming with new games right now and who would be we would be it would be bad for us if we didn't take advantage of everyone's creativity when they could focus on coming up with new ideas rather than get like three people to come up with new ideas while everyone else is busy working on the game I don't think that's like the way we get to the best possible next project and it's it's also not how coffee stand has historically everywhere not that we're the same company necessarily as we were before but like when it comes to like sanctum Goat Simulator that was like part of everyone was coming up with random things and goat simulator happened and then we satisfactory everyone was coming up with random things and satisfactory happened and I think you know I think that process is really really good so I hope we're not coming up with ideas now that we will pre-approve to make after satisfactory I'm assuming we'll have another like game Jammy massive sort of brainstorming process together we'll see what happens yeah

uh why does gas marks stop working when in truck because all the equipment are unequipped when you enter Vehicles because there's some kind of reason for that there's like some issue is that is that a design uh reason or is it uh is it technical no it's a technical reason as far as I know really yeah it's been like that since forever because when you if you have equipment equipped while you're in vehicles it messes up with like the player controller and stuff like that I'm pretty sure

[Music]

make sure to let people know on the QA site but I think this is something that's been it is super known yeah yeah I'm pretty sure it's really known yeah but uh always you could still let people know the QA site let them know maybe the solution to fixing attachments when the hyper tube yeah so that's an actual similar thing with like the vehicles right because they get real like we detach the attachments on you when you're in the hypertube for some reason and that's why they're floating next to you right because they're still they're still on you but they're not equipped so the mesh is still there it's strange

any updates on the new tutorial uh no no updates on no words on the tutorial last thing if we do that yeah it is like the most important part of the game is like the first uh uh like your first time user experience so like that's the thing you really want to be sure that the game is like finished and ready so you know like but but I doubt we'd put much time into it right now when there's new things that we plan on adding so we might want to do that yeah lost when we've got everything else in so that we know that we can explain everything well I think the tutorial at the moment is pretty decent pretty good so I don't think we're in too much of a rush but of course we should absolutely absolutely revisit it to make sure we get it as good as it can possibly be it's super important for new players because it's definitely um I was gonna say how did I forget what I was going to say the moment when I started speaking because because I don't feel like we've seen ambulance um I think the thing we also kind of want to check out as well with the new because we added new analytics system or no not analytics but metric system in the game because we want to kind of figure out like where people drop off as well so like maybe we we need a little bit data on like knowing specifically like where people get stuck in the game if they get stuck so like if we start working on a tutorial system before we know have that data fully established then we might be focusing on like the wrong parts of the game where we think like oh this is something that people don't understand but it might be something else that people will get stuck on so we also kind of want to gather a little bit more data on that thank you I know that like uh pipes and coal power was always a uh you should drop off point in the past hmfs oh boy God I'm still well oh my God I still have flashbacks when I try to go to sleep you get stuck at that point then you're already screwed like you you've gone too far

uh other plans to reduce more cause and effect to the game so I um I feel like there should be consequences for abusing this pretty little planet yeah right so uh there was like I know in the very beginning of satisfactory there was the intention that um you know like if you build like a lot of stuff it will affect the environment and that might screw with things maybe create like bigger monsters or whatever and then we ended up scrapping that very early I think just to sort of simplify the game I think that the interest for that is probably one where most people are probably like yeah that would be cool but I think it's also something where we I think it's gotten to a point where it's also something that's just not as important as other things like it's one it's it's a cool feature but there's a lot of features that would just be cool but what is the game what do we think the game absolutely needs to get to 1.0 and I'm not sure if we think that environment stuff um matters uh for a 1.0 release uh yeah that's kind of where I think it lies right now

could there be some uh creative or cheats most likely so with in Update 7 we've added the ability to support game modes and with that came uh like passive mode or the retaliation mode where uh creatures won't attack you unless you attack them first or the default mode where they're you know aggressive creatures are aggressive um and that's the groundwork for Creative for uh game modes in the future and I think a creative mode is a very obvious one and I'm 99 sure that that's something that's going to come but it's it's something that we don't we we haven't wanted to work on um through the majority of development because we don't we don't necessarily want to encourage everyone to easily go into creative mode I know some people go get mods anyway and they can get something like that and that's fine if you go and jump through those Hoops to do that but we don't want to just give people a button to turn on creative mode if they're frustrated with the normal mode because we want you to be frustrated with the normal mode if it's frustrating so that you can tell us so that we can make it less frustrating you know what I mean so if we give creative mode too early we may miss out on a lot of feedback and I know that maybe comes at the cost of maybe the fun for some people so like who knows maybe it's a good decision maybe it's not but that's just the justification yeah but uh creative mode is is an obvious uh an obvious game mode I think that should be added personally

will there be a way to make use of post 780 parts per minute for MK3 miners so that's something that we will address at some point yeah we will address that at some point that's my understanding yeah um any plans over 1200 Min per minute belt or Miner uh probably not so as I was saying before we get Precision issues as the number of uh units in the through port throughput or like that are being generated or sunk or or even fluids right when these numbers as these numbers increase we actually like mathematically and not just mathematically but like they're just technical issues and like limitations that start to uh cause issues and so I think that if anything if anything uh there might end up being a point in time where we scale down everything just so that we we don't have to deal with that technical limitation so much anymore and you guys can have more Precision but like in a relative sense right so it will still essentially be the same game it's just like list numbers um and then so if I take your question then like is there going to be a 1200 per minute belt or is there going to be a foster belt uh uh maybe if we can get around these technical issues that could possibly be floating Point Precision issues yeah so it is floating Point Precision issues that's one part of it but it's also like the other issue is also like um the way now I don't know this I'm trying to think of this if I can get this correct but it's also a matter of like when you're how many how many items gets processed per frame right now if if we if if there's like if you're you've got items zipping through and in one frame they're supposed to be like six items that go into a building because maybe I don't know you have a low frame rate or there's a spike in at this one moment or if if the uh the the belt is so obscenely quick that that happens accounting for all of these different like movements within the factory uh in the factory tick can be really tough uh I think I think you can only actually do the way it is you can only do like one at a time or something like that and then I think we have to then simulate frames to make up for it if there's like a one long frame I don't know all this like weird so it's it's not just the floating Point position issue which I think is there as well but it's also like how do you handle if there's a lag Spike or if there's just low FPS and there's a lot of uh um items that get you know produced or sunk into a building how do we handle that on conveyor belts or split or merged how do we handle that like completely accurately right because you guys you guys will know if there's like a one percent sway you will notice it in your factory won't you you will like your power will go out or you know buildings will be like backed up like you will know it it so it really needs to be really really really precise like 100 of the time otherwise you will feel it in your factory and that's that's a very hard issue to solve especially on like computers where frame rates can be variable and all that kind of stuff so Update 7 was a huge Improvement on your lag and lag spikes that's good to hear the math yeah it's a it's a combination of like math and just like like algorithmic logic kind of you know it's like how how do we handle it how do we handle it what do we do there should have been 10 items that went into this building what do we do how do we calculate that

I played this game a while ago but never installed it as I'm waiting on control support how is it doing uh there's probably been I think there's been no progress in control of support and I'm still not entirely sure on what the official stance is going to be on controller support uh I think if we could click our fingers and have control support we would want it um for the longest time we did have control support in the very beginning and I think to some degree there is some control of support but there's not a lot of thought that's gone into it um but we didn't want to do it because we thought the game is changing a lot a lot of things are being added we don't really want to keep revisiting control support every single time we do something because we want to focus on getting the design of the game done and getting the features of the game that that are needed in um but then now at the stage I'm not really sure where we stand like I I don't know if the planner right now is well when all that's done we'll get the control support in or not uh I think if we can have control support of course we would want it there's so many good reasons uh you know some people just like control support but also for accessibility reasons controllers can be really good for people too and so it would be great if we can do that but it all comes down to uh you know the planning and prioritizing features and I'm not sure what what the you know the plans or the intention of the team is uh on the on the front do people play it on Steam decks okay I'm not sure does people who hit plays satisfaction steam deck does anyone play Satisfaction on Steam deck you do I do okay that's pretty good

let's see the lego thing what did happen to the lego thing when is there uh maybe it didn't happen because i haven't heard of it quick recap uh lego nerdist made a really cool satisfactory lego piece uh with the constructor and the way that it works when you put it out i'm going to post it on chat here real quick so when you post when you make like on the lego ideas website uh you can have people vote on it and then um if it reaches like 10 000 votes then it's put in the lap of like the reviewers for lego to look at it and be like you know what maybe we will make a lego piece out of this and it did reach 10 000 votes and i don't know when the review period is it's still yeah yeah it's it's i don't know when the review period is because you only have like two or three review periods a year or something like that or maybe just maybe it's just one if you started may i don't know i don't know what the state of this is um i don't know if they actually like say like no it will never be a lego thing or whatever maybe they'll make a youtube video with like top 10 lego pieces we'll never make number one satisfactory lego off said it's cough stain we're never doing it maybe lego would do that i don't know so yeah i don't know the state of that actually there was another lego piece which was the train uh by the way you can still vote for that one highly recommend you do because it's really cool um hit the old support button on the train one it's really cool i think they haven't i think they also made this um so there's like a video or something with this actually working or maybe these are pictures actually very cool um so that also exists so please how about that that's really cool i would also love to see that one but yeah don't know the state of things in the world of lego satisfactory lego will it be a thing we will never know yeah you can't you can always buy the pieces uh is there because i assume there's like a way to download like the like which pieces do you need for this or something and you can download the model or something you can figure out where do they go or something but what do i know i'm just a stupid community manager

[Music]

yeah yeah exactly like there's it's also like a really complex lego piece so uh yeah i don't know would be cool but yeah lego in satisfactory when lego no no no no that if lego won't put says if lego won't put out a satisfactory lego piece we're not putting a lego in our game what are you talking about uh they scratch our back we scratched their back you know that's not that's in productive packer it's not lego what are you talking about all right anyways i think uh we're probably gonna need to wrap up soon actually

will the game end if we complete the story or can we play afterwards pretty sure this is my guess but pretty sure you're gonna be able to play the game afterwards i think story is gonna be it's not gonna be like take the stage so to speak i think when we add story to the game it's going to be like a like a side thing it's not going to be the game isn't going to be like the pacing of the game is going to be controlled by the story i think the story more so is going to be like a like a yes a side side chick the store is going to be a side chick for the game okay like you because like i think the ambition is you're gonna be able to play the game without playing the story at all and you're still gonna sort of get the experience that you're getting today yeah you can ignore the story i'm pretty sure that's that's what we're still so here's here's why i'm like hesitating on that is because we've been changing internally a lot about like how how the story works and like how it plays into the game we've been going through so many iterations of like what the story is and how the story plays into the game so you know it's still pending pending to change but i think i think that's still our stance that like you can completely ignore the story if you want to

plan the dedicated server will fully support multi-threading technically dedicated already support multi-threading it's the fact that like the game can't be more threaded than the game is you know like you can't you can't just add more threads uh to a game and expect it to run faster like sometimes it can actually get worse the more thread it gets so we have we have made the game as threaded as it can be there are i think there's some bug on like linux dedicated servers where it doesn't actually use any more thread than it already like allocated so it's only running on one thread which is with that is a bug but i think we solve that um but if you're noticing that like oh it's using a bunch of threads it's not using every thread then you know you're running as many threads as you can right now essentially

what is your favorite biome so far boy i mean my favorite biome is always the latest one because like i i i can see myself improving every time with like how how i build things or just like sometimes i have this thing where i i don't necessarily like something for what it is but for what it could be if that makes sense uh when i see like the potential in a place or or like oh like all these things that i sort of still have in my mind layered on top of it that changes things too but like i mean i really like how this spider coast turned out i'm really proud of it um i'm i mean northern forest's the same thing like i don't know like it's it's all cool it's yep we talked a little bit about this before too like when we were comparing the different clips here and between the the uh rocky desert and the uh spider coaster you just tilt the camera to the left here not tilt wait it's roll whatever no it's not roll whatever um how like the cliffs the way we're doing clips now looks different compared to how we used to do them and they're like ah do we go back and look at the uh change all the clips again but then once we do that we're going to change it again pan is not the term i'm looking for chat by the way i see a lot of people say there's a lot of a lot of terms that people always use like pan and stuff like that where it's actually not correct i can't remember the actual term whatever um no it's not swivel there's there's a fancy diagram for like filming um

[Music]

i cannot remember everyone just uses pan like just pan left i was like all right that's pen exactly the movement is part of it too uh so yeah we just never never stop working on the game i guess no yeah that's the that's the risk too right like you're never really done uh you just have to decide you're done at some point and then that's that's your limit because you could always always make something prettier like there's a lot of work i'm doing on the sparrow coast that i'm i know that i can i can improve it and i can make it better but kind of like we talked about earlier like that that 20 improvement would take me the same time as working on this entire area like again right it's just not worth the amount of time and effort for the the small amount of gain even though i know it's possible it's not uh there's other sacrifices too like doing not for sparkles means that suddenly sparkles is gonna be so beyond quality-wise the rest of the map that the rest of the map is gonna kind of suck in comparison right that's something that you also have to keep in mind like we don't have time to upgrade every single area to the same exact level we just have to kind of keep it uh the moment you like improve something above and beyond the rest you kind of start needing to improve the rest as well so you shoot yourself in the foot again it's like like eternal improvement cycles right uh because you want to sort of equalize the level of quality across the entire map and like i i'm absolutely already pushing that and shooting myself in the foot with that with this kind of stuff because like also because like i've learned so much ever since i started working that like you know everything i do like i want it i want it to be better and i want things to be nicer but not i shouldn't always do that right you have to keep things consistent too yeah stop getting better hannah yeah yeah yeah it's like oh no before i uh go mad with power you know or we just work on the game forever i guess that's a big problem

any plans for extreme weather that affects productivity it affects productivity never i don't that's that's part of like the video we put out a couple of weeks ago on a youtube channel like something that we don't want to ever add to the game is like any kind of maintenance aspect of the game um you know we already have fog exactly like uh remember how much worse the fog was by the way you guys in the past you guys have it good right now with the fog okay i'm just saying um what was i talking about yeah so so weather effects is something that we always wanted to add to the game i think is really cool and i think we always felt that it was really cool we've had ideas in the past where like oh what if you know the more factories you put out in the the map it like rains acid rain or something like that and you have to maintain your factories but it's like a cool idea and concept but i don't think we like that and that's kind of like abandoned that idea um so uh we've been uh kind of like kind of putting our foot down and saying like no we're not gonna add that kind of stuff but weather effects could be cool in general for the game by itself just having like rain and stuff like that i think that would be really nice it's a nice little detail and it's something that we always wanted but it's it always gets like pushed because there's always like something more you know crucial to the game or whatever like it's it's kind of hard sometimes when you're working on games like this where you want to add so much polish to it but like it's hard to like define like where is the polish you know because the weather system is a huge task you know working on and making so um so uh it's like it's a tricky balance there as to like what we would need to do minimum for it to be worth the hassle of doing it especially when we have so many else cool things everyone implements

increase object limit when so uh never we can actually say that for sure because the object limit isn't something that we've set this is not something that we can control either because it's something that is part of the engine um and you know the engine isn't really intended to be used the way we use it um it's it has to do with how the memory is managed uh in the engine and like you can sort of up that limit using config files and that's been possible ever since day one but uh the problem is that like there's no there's like you're kind of like losing out on safeguards when you do that so like a lot of weird things can happen memory wise if you start you know changing that number uh because that is a theoretical limit um so like there's been people reporting that like they've had their save files corrupted or you know like weird stuff happening factory logic not working the way they should um so it is always recommended that we don't change that we are however working on improving the game so we don't have to use as many game objects now a game object isn't the same as like an object that you place in the world it has a memory object specifically so like if you place a constructor for instance it used to be that a constructor was like maybe 16 different game objects and now it's like down to eight and i think there's plans to improve that as well and like maybe not specific for the constructor but like for a lot of different things we are constantly working on improving the memory footprint of the game and uh i believe recently we've been working a lot on like the environment to like kind of get down the memory footprint on that and like how we manage loading the environment and stuff like that um so um but we can't really change the the like the u object limit the unreal object limit uh that's set by the engine

is satisfactory called factory game in the project code for unreal yes um i heard i've heard yes exactly it is uh correct i've heard that it is quite hard to change it and a lot of tools i use show the true name of application called color factor game yeah so we called it factory game and you're right it is hard to change which is why we haven't changed it i don't know if or when we ever will um the longer we we go into this the harder it gets changing the name um but like this is a this is a somewhat common problem for unreal engine games specifically i know that like arc is still called shooter game which is like the name of the template project in unreal engine when you like when you boot up unreal engine you can pick like if you want like a clean template like if you want a clean project with nothing in it or if you want like a template project with like some base functionality in it and uh one of them is called shooter game which is like a first person shooter like it's it's it's unreal tournaments like in a small like yeah segmented like thing yeah i think i think i don't talk was sangdom called furious i can't remember now that you mention it that because i know i know that it was called like i know that the the the code classes and stuff were sg yeah and i don't know if it was sanctum game or shooter game that's a good question and i get the feeling that when they started making the project they probably didn't know the game was called sanctum that's my assumption stargate you're right it is stargate game very good coffee stain got the license thing for that make a game for it yeah and i'm pretty sure like factory game is also based on that template uh with the first person shooter thing maybe i feel like most first-person games in a real engine usually based on that but i don't know yeah but we call it factory game because we didn't want to call it shooter game because it's confusing and it's not a shooter game yeah it's a factory game it is yeah uh sure glad yeah i'm sure glad we couldn't didn't call it factorio 3d game when we started that project well that would have been weird yeah whoops

will trains collide with land or just other trains i think

[Music]

if i had to guess i think trains are going to behave sort of similar to how they did with land before um but they will collide with other trains i uh first i'm guessing um i think the thing we want to get in is collision without the trains and like signaling so that you have you know you need to manage your your training lines in a different way i don't think we care too much about like clipping with the environment like it's a similar thing with like conveyor belts like that if we need to fix the clipping issues with the trails uh the trains in in the terrain with the trains train lines then why aren't we fixing it for the conveyor belts you know so and the conveyor belts are like kind of an active choice that we don't want to like overdo or limit like what you can do with the game so like if clipping annoys you then you won't clip you know you won't build your factory's clipping and if you don't mind clipping um and also you get like a little bit more freedom then clipping is is enabled sort of or available to you um so i think that's sort of the approach that we're going to take with trains as well no i can't say for sure because we haven't reached that point where we've made a decision on that because we need to work on it first but so yeah that's that's i think that's my take on that as right now there will be train signals yes at some point there will be train signals

uh when do we get a map updating for us so i can actually play the game without having uh without keep having in mind my instructors might disappear and stuff uh well so the reality is you're playing an early access game so you know that's that's probably that's likely gonna happen you know sometime soon when we do do the map update um but that's probably not gonna be the last time we do a map update right so this is kind of like you know uh something you're gonna have to just kind of deal with with the fact that we're in early access however um hopefully the plan is hopefully in the next few weeks uh i will be able to release some information about the world update um and with it i would like to try and just give some sort of like map with some like hotspots of regions that have been modified so that people can sort of uh plan ahead right but the thing is you know the game is designed so that you can build wherever you want so it's it's just likely that there are people out there that have just built in the hot spots of where we've made massive um modifications we've had it before where people have factories that end up being inside a mountain or underground and that's likely just going to happen again but hopefully with with um you know releasing that information when i do um with a map and some hotspots we can mitigate that kind of damage to give people some time to try and move their factories to a different location um but that's that's always going to be a pain like even moving like like what if your factory is in a hot spot right you're gonna have to move the whole thing it's gonna be a pain no matter what but it is it is kind of the nature of early access and we don't want to you know we're striving for a good 1.0 game and we don't want to be like well you know the world would look better if we made it like this but we you know it may scrub some factories so we're not going to do it you know we don't want to do that we do have to put the game first at the end of the day and that doesn't mean some people are going to get kind of screwed over by it to be honest when uh the world does change you know just some safe spots we can move yeah yeah yeah we'll do that sometime soon before like well before the update so that you'll have a lot of time to move things if you want to move things but no doubt they're gonna be no doubt the world is gonna change on top of your factories some of y'all uh a lot of work is gonna be taking place in the northern forest we have talked about that but yeah i i would like to i'll talk to hannah in the future and when we when we do release a video we'll try and release something that um will be as helpful as possible to uh ensure that people can safely move their factories

uh what does the object limit uh refer to exactly one constructor because one object so this is the the confusing thing with the object limit it refers to you object which is not like a physical object or a game object an unreal engine it's an unreal an engine object which is like way programming languages try to like obfuscate how memory works is by referring to massive object you may have heard the term like object oriented languages where they try to like simplify it but how you how you can think of of code um and it's it's essentially a memory object and no one constructor does not equal one object one constructor is could be many objects i don't know the exact number um and they also vary from object to object like maybe you know maybe a beacon is like three objects or maybe two objects or one i don't know exactly and then another constructor could be many objects so uh it's really hard to like to to to to know but something that we sort of tell folks is that like the the number of people that actually hit this object limit is so so few yes like you shouldn't have to worry about it there's unless you're really building some super crazy stuff you really really should not worry about it um and so like you shouldn't have to like don't don't let the object limit impact the way that you play the game unless or do if you want to but you shouldn't need to like you should see a better play as you normally want to yeah and you know we do things on our end to reduce the uh the overhead or the impact that uh objects have on the objective as well yeah so and also the amount of people that hit that object limit that are playing the game vanilla is even smaller uh most people that hit it are using mods to like build way faster and stuff like that and build like humongous things like place i'm thinking i'm talking like placing down like you know half a million foundation blocks and stuff like that um
