make a console port after 1.0 it is always possible we don't have plans for console at the moment um so i can't say for sure what's gonna happen there but it would be like it would be cool it would be cool to have satisfactory on console it would be cool to have satisfactory on like linux and mac and that stuff we are not 100 sure if we are gonna have like full control support which is like i guess the main giveaway there because we are designing the game for like keyboard and mouse first and you know if we add features where we just can't translate it to controller then we're kind of screwed but we also don't want to feel like we're stuck with like oh we can't add this feature because we have to have controller support like we don't think that's that's uh what's the word like we don't think that's fair for the game as it is on pc because it is a pc game first and foremost like there's no getting around that um and it feels weird like i know that sucks because there's a lot of other reasons other than like having console ability and like accessibility options as well kind of sucks for those people as well um but that's how it is right now but maybe feasible it's always useful you gotta be smart enough

may i ask if any work ongoing on mods or dedicated services that backlog so i don't hate to break it to you we have we have we don't work on mods at all we modding is completely commun uh community driven um so we have no say in that whatsoever um i think i think we want to have official mod support eventually but it will still be community that will have to maintain that i have to maintain it will maintain that um but i i'm pretty sure they they are working that really like they you know they can't do this full time i i think most of them don't work full-time and this is this is like we didn't think we were going to have one support at all for satisfactory until we had an official one so the fact that modding has come so far has already is insane to us uh as to like the latest on like dedicated server mod support you're gonna have to join the modding community discord to get news on that um so yes

any plans regarding steam workshop not at the moment um we have a very thriving modding community and they have their own tool and right now we don't see steam being actually better than honestly because it will uh divide our community or our modern community uh unless our modding community like really wants workshop we're always open for that because that's the thing right we want to do what's best for the modern community

[Music]

so we don't know if workshop is actually the best option there it's it's better for you guys downloading mods on steam specifically but it's better for the money community as a whole don't know

overall the smart splitters like choose so much resources split between the so i don't think we'll ever do that where you can decide like the ratio because that is a huge part of our game um that you're doing ratio calculations and you're handling that um we might do something where we make it easier to manage it maybe but not you're probably never going to have like a slider or like like the on the on the on the pipe uh valves uh that will probably never happen because it's we're not solving the same problem as we do with pipes when we do it that way because pipes you can't balance the same way without valves whereas with conveyor belts you can

[Music]

so uh um dude if you look up like losing a train of thought this moment is like in the dictionary sorry it's just gone i just completely i wasn't even distracted by anything other than myself what the [ __ ] um game modes yeah we have like ideas to add game modes to the game at some point uh and that would be like you know maybe we'll have peace more maybe i'm like some kind of creative mode blah blah we'll see we'll see but that's further down the line we still want to get feedback on a lot of stuff um so if we add those modes too early we feel like we might be uh splitting up the community a little bit too much where we kind of need that like single hive mind kind of feedback dive right now

will building on the map always oh yeah that's another good question i saw it before as well um there's like a couple of places on the map where there's like holes um do you know how much we're gonna be able to like fix those spots for this update or is that like further down the line i mean some some of them are there by design and some of them are not there by design ideally yeah but like like there's a lot of people that for example built like underneath the cliffs in this mountain uh yeah if you're still there somehow after everything that's gonna get up um that was not never intended to be a space where you can build so uh those those those kinds of holes will be filled up because those are bugs but there's like in there in grass fields like there's a big sort of like hole like through the train and that one's there to say i'm sure people will find a way to still manage to get underneath the map i mean you can still do i think you can always do the thing where if you place a hyper tube entrance and you get that tube to like clip into the environment yeah you can always get through it that way yeah you dirty cheaters i can't believe it uh all right all right

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

control support news we probably won't look into control support until 1.0 honestly um

[Music]

especially not at this at this stage we don't feel like it's really worth implementing controlled support now if anything we'll try and get it for 1.0 but we don't know we don't know if if uh if there's still a couple of changes coming to the game and we still aren't super hundred percent sure that they will work with controllers i know there are like controller mappings right now that work fully but uh we there's still things that we want to change with the game so we we'd rather wait until all the ui elements and all that stuff is in place before we introduce control support because otherwise that introduces so much extra work for us and that delays the entire game so that's why we rather do it at the end if we do it at all

[Music]

so yes yeah there's the whole steam deck thing um which is which is a pretty like good argument as to why we should have control support and obviously we're we're thinking of that um

[Music]

but we we don't know at this stage essentially because we we it's it's like it's it's a risk for us introducing control support now for the whole production because we need to maintain that if we do and we don't feel confident that we can do that while we're also developing the game at the pace we're doing so yes

uh will there be okay so this this question is mainly about the minor mark iii um so we still don't know what we'll do with the minor mark iii because we haven't gotten that part of development yet where we need to look into that um it's possible we'll add like the alternatives we have is like we add another mark six belt no we add mark six belt or we make it so that the mark the minor mark iii doesn't produce as much or we do something else um you know we'll we'll make that decision once we get to that point we're kind of treating everything as like you know we tend to work on like subsections of the game and then complete them until we move on to the next one and make decisions and we don't want to like reserve ourselves to doing it one way or another because we might find that like it's better to do it one way or the other

can we add destruction completed to crash sites what what is the uh current plan for how to handle crest crash sites that you've already picked parts from i think that's on the back log um my fault has always been what if you could just dismantle it yeah i think internally even someone had a suggestion like what if you could just dismantle it and you could get some special resource from it that we could do something cool with i don't know what you would do with it um but definitely being able to dismantle it i think would be the easiest i mean it wouldn't be easy but it would be the most practical because i think that's the the main way that players would understand like i can just remove it like any other building in the game yeah more hub parts oh yeah dylan has gotta love that yeah yeah i think it's so funny that we haven't uh fixed that up part issue but it's also like a mean at this point so whatever uh but yeah i think that would be really cool because like there's there's a bunch of places where i see people building like the there's like a uh well there's both it's both cool and and annoying where you have to like build your base around crash sites sometimes when you've you've set something big up and you're like ah it's gonna intersect with this this is kind of cool when people do builds when they do build around the world a little bit uh so i don't know we'll see yeah i think so but i think that's mostly nice when it's like natural terrain and if it's like a ship that fell out of the sky that it's also from fixed it it doesn't have the same vibe to it yeah so i completely understand if people want to remove those um and generally it's just kind of nice to get things out of the way like it should be a player's decision to keep things that are in the way there for aesthetic reasons mm-hmm yeah being forced to do so it's not really fun i would say yeah here's a pretty interesting question oh sorry can i say the thing about uh because we are gonna uh uh no i think i know what you're about to say but we're saving that um

ask us do your programs use c plus plus or blueprint for the most part they they prefer native so c plus plus uh programming that's generally where most of the programming work gets done however blueprint is like an integral part of the way unreal engine works and it's also a very useful tool for our ui artists and designers and so our programmers do need to bridge the gap between native and blueprints sometimes and do have to do some things in blueprints it sometimes it just makes sense to do things in blueprints um you know just got to use the right tool for the right job and of course they use unreal engine for testing the game and debugging the game as well our

and then reverse function and belts like we did with lifts i would like that too the reason why i don't i think the reason why we didn't add it was because it was like a sort of a late tier addition to the lifts um we it was like not part of the update five release even it was like during experimental we added it um and sometimes we add things to like kind of try them out as well like sometimes some features don't like stick with some people um so i think i think that is a pretty good addition to the belts in general though so please upload there okay with cooler side let give it a little vote on the q website to make sure that uh we see it would be dandy

your thoughts on logic implementation on the game um i think it would be cool i don't know where i cause like it is a bit complex and i think like i think one there's like two things here right when it comes to logic system for our game um it can it can open up a lot of like possibilities with our game uh you make a lot of cool stuff because like part of satisfactory is really all about like tinkering you know and and you know being able to to set up whatever you want and do like can i abstract changes of your systems and stuff like that because like there's nothing that says like you have to play satisfaction in a certain way and we certainly haven't designed it that way um but um but you know if if you add like a logic system and and we also want to cater in like you know that the rest of the game loom makes sense for that um then we also need to like strike a balance between what uh what we kind of add to the game and doesn't like enforce it to people you know um because if if we make something that's like too difficult to maintain when it comes to logic system then i think people would be a little bit discouraged so i think we need probably need to like draw a fine line and i see panna cotta in chat here too panna cot has made like a huge mod for logic systems in the game and i think that like sort of shows you know the deep end of of a logic system because you can do a lot of that stuff in that mod and i don't think we would like go that deep if we were to implement a logic system uh i think we would sort of need to find like middle ground um for like what makes sense in our game because it is it is like in other games where they have logic systems like it's really easy to get kind of like caught up in in the difficulty in those kind of systems and it's it's like for the people that want that that's a great addition but we always have to like sort of you know rationalize between everything we add to the game that makes sense for the entire game so um so yeah long story short i think it would be cool but it's also hard to say what be it would be a good like balance um i think so uh yeah

any plans to improve general performance uh i believe jase has to answer that question yes yeah yes yeah that's the one cool um yeah we we always work on general improvements uh for for the game we never don't do it uh it's part of every pretty much every update we do we always have you know we have people that like do nothing but but work on performance with the game essentially um and it is a it is a tricky balance because there are a couple of things that we like we can't work on until we're done with certain aspects of the game so we always have to like push them aside this goes in general for some of the bugs as well we're like yeah this stuff that we always work out on and there's like bugs that may may have been in the game for a long time and it's probably because they're part of like a system that we need to overhaul in general and it doesn't make sense to like do everything at the same time like if we were to spend you know the time that we spend would have to need to spend to fix all the bugs every time we make an update then we would wouldn't have released like we would have released like one update a year you know instead of two so it's it's it's really tricky balance you know when you're in an early access game as to what's what you how much you fix up on stuff and things like that but hopefully i i hopefully we are striking a good balance there and like what what we're sort of giving you guys in terms of new features and stuff but also like how well the game is like you know handled and stuff like that so um hopefully we'll get around to fixing everything but you know you can't fix everything in games it's just that's just like humble sometimes so yeah

in a dlc expansion plan or just more free stuff uh nothing planned yet because we haven't released the game yet so i guess it's a it's it's one of those things where like we'll we'll get to that bridge when we burn it or we burn that bridge when we cross it or whatever um yeah i know right i know yeah so uh like we haven't really made any decisions on dlc it might be the case where it might be the case where we have like a bunch of plans that we want to make for the game before 1.0 and then at some point we feel like if we never finish the game it will never be finished you know it's a game isn't finished until you decided it right so we could be working on satisfactory for a long time and like you say we could be keep like we could stay in early access and just like keep working like this uh but i think we want to like kind of finish up the game at some point um and uh and um you know finish it essentially oh really yeah um so um so uh at one point we might do the thing where like if we've planned for something that we really wanted from 1.0 we might be like all right that's cool we couldn't make that feature but maybe that becomes a dlc i don't know we'll see um you know everything's so clouded right now when it comes to gaming because you never know until you're pretty much done the work so that's just how the cookie crumbles sometimes and my name's jace all right um all right

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

is there a road map posted anywhere not necessarily with release dates or targeting things uh but more larger if you have game features and content no there isn't because uh ultimately they're unreliable and if we can't put a reliable roadmap up there's no point in having a roadmap and when i say like unreliable like even features that you know if you asked us what features we were going to add this year last year that's already changed so it's like there's no point in us especially with features like we definitely wouldn't have want to put a road map up last year saying features x y and z are going to be added only for us now with more information as time has gone on we come to realize that we don't want to add those and then remove them from the road map and then feel pressure to have actually added those things because we said that we would add them so roadmap is really really not a good idea for us it doesn't really work for us the way that we work at all i understand that it can be useful for a community to have a vague idea of what's going to be happening but if we can't give you that accurately there's no point in giving it to you yes i feel for sure and you know when it comes to things that like make sense for you guys to know in advance such as like oh if you're gonna add a signalling system to trains then you know that like you're gonna need to like rework that in the future like that kind of information we try to like put out as much as soon as we can once we feel confident that we can put it out um but uh yeah maybe not a roadmap but a page that have a lot of brainstorm ideas okay so like we like we have something like that and the thing is first of all one there's the qa site which is almost that which is insanely big all right and ultimately like cool there's there's ideas there but it doesn't tell you anything about what we're gonna do we also have one internally that we use which is almost as big as the qa site which again we could we could put that in front of you but that's not gonna tell you anything about what we're gonna do that's just a bunch of ideas so it's it's not actually it's not actually useful yeah

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

i don't know if we've like if we have like a solid answer to like why we haven't done it but it's never been i don't think we've ever like we've never thought about it or talked about it before

[Music]

because because the one thing i know that we have talked about internally is that like um people have requested like ratio splitting so you can do sort of similar with the uh pipe valves so you can set like how much water you want to go in a certain valve and i know that people are requested that for um for belts as well um and and one thing that i think it was marco pointed this out i can't remember is that like you know the big part of satisfactory is the ratio handling um so like a big portion of the game is kind of like out of the window if we just give you an option like that that's true that's true but i also it's natural to want that right it's absolutely natural to request that but it does undo a lot of the game but then yeah it makes sense for folks who've like already done a lot but exactly like it could be a very late like tier seven or something like kind of thing um i don't know it could make sense maybe but uh yeah i'll put that on the keyword side let us know your thoughts yeah do consider it

more map i mean sure or more a map but then that's that's a big task i mean we've been working on this map for six seven years yeah five years six years yeah same thing there like when i was going through the prototype builds uh there was like at one point suddenly there was a map it was no longer like the test level and that was pretty early on like you can tell like the the the landscape of the map hasn't really changed that much um over the years that we've worked on the game but it has become like much more detail and like uh just more enriched with uh content because in the beginning was just like a rocky landscape that didn't have anything on it yeah i think i think there have been like a few things that have kind of moved around a little yeah i think little adjustments but

elevators is another good example of something that could be cool to add but i think it's too much effort to for what it's worth specifically for multiplayer because elevators are always tricky to do in game dev elevators and doors are just to implement just use just just use hyper tubes yeah and when i say doors i mean like the the doors that kind of swing we have doors now they're just like kind of open and close but you know the ones that swing out and then those are always a nightmare to figure out all the edge cases work

why is mac supported four and not six or eight i'm not asking for more but four seems low especially considering the 128 event so i mean i i mean you know it could be whatever but we have to sort of then balance the game so that it works for that many people right so we we if we officially support eight then in all of our design and everything that we do and the technical side of things everything we do must then maintain that so like i i i'm yeah so like i think when we go with four then that's just kind of the line that we drew so that when it comes to balancing when it comes to technical stuff we know what we're aiming for yes

fixmas is my favorite time of the year there's been discussions about more events like this and so would be more likely post launch we have talked about other events um we said last year that we were going to look into more events look how well that went uh we will always have fixmes at least i don't think like i think the problem mainly is that we we're quite ambitious uh the people that work at coffee stain are really ambitious we always want to do a lot of things but it always ends up that i think a lot of that ambition goes into the major updates that we've made so far and i don't know like we've always wanted to do more events we have support for more events in the like the the seasonal system that we use to like trigger this kind of stuff that is support for many more events uh stuff like that so there's always the possibility for more events and i think it's going to be like if we get around to doing something then we'll do it but right now there's no talk of anything else but i guess that's because we're so still kind of wrapping up fixmas because we haven't finished fixmas even so it's not impossible but you never know

can there be an option when creating a new game to randomize what resources of and what purity appears at each note location that is always possible to do uh that is something that we probably would introduce when we add more game modes to the game which i don't know when that will happen but uh so probably some point before 1.0 uh because that's not impossible to add uh what we can't add is like you know level randomization as in like procedural generated planet can't add that to the world and we can't have um terraforming because of the way we built the game

okay experimental saves be moved over to early access without issue or do we need to stay on experimental so you can make those the you can uh copy them over or whatever for early access um when the two versions match okay so when we release um update five on early access on you know the plan is tuesday next week when we do that then the early access version of the game and the experimental version of the game will match and at that point you can switch to early access and play back up your save files whenever you do make this switch just back them up anyway sometimes like cloud save get sort of back them up whenever you switch um and then yeah then you can play from early access but the the rule of thumb here is that um saves older saves can be loaded in newer versions of the game but newer versions of the game cannot be loaded in older versions of the game and more often than not experimental is newer than early access um yeah yes that's that's the best like rule of thumb really yeah

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

can we experience the story with or the existing 500 hour factor oh do you have to start from scratch so that's an interesting uh question the thing is i'm not 100 sure i think in the past i think we've said that we want to make it so that you can still do it but i i i genuinely don't know i i genuinely don't know if anyone actually knows for sure just yet because we we have to see we have to see like what the best way to implement the story is you know um and if i don't know i don't know if that means folks will have to start again from scratch to get to get the most out of it or not but yeah i mean i want to say hopefully not but at the same time i think that even though that's a major inconvenience uh i think we should do what is best for the game even if that you know even if that sort of screws some people over uh because the game is what lives on forever you know uh but we'll sort of see that's that's just my opinion on that

vamanos does satisfactory have official mod support so satisfactory currently does not have official mod support but we do intend on doing that uh you know adding it into the game at some point in the future we don't really know when that's going to be or what that's going to look like yet at this stage so uh you know once we do know i'll you know make another video in the future and let you all know about that but at this stage we don't really know however there is a thriving unofficial modding community out there so um if you're interested in playing satisfactory with mods i'm going to leave some links in the description down below to the fixit.app website which is a website that has like all the mods on it it also has links to the satisfactory mod manager which is a tool to install and play satisfactory with mods super super easy to use that thing's like voodoo magic it's amazing and then also i'm gonna leave another link down there to the unofficial modding community discord a lot of people there are super active there as well so if you want to start playing with mods or have questions you can go there and ask them if you want to get into modding as well i'm sure you can go and ask there and they can point you in the right direction as well are you okay with people modding

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

uh any thoughts about attaching splitters directly to machines such miners i mean i like the idea i don't know why we don't have that uh but yeah i'm not sure so say that again what was it i missed the any thoughts of attaching splitters directly to machine slash miners yes i was actually part of a lot of discussion in that regard in the early days this is the early days because i believe we changed our minds a little bit but one of the main reasons was because it wasn't clear enough what happened uh when you just attached a splitter to a machine it became like odd to like figure out what was going on there's also like a technical reason um where we need the the the belt sort of and if we wanted to do the thing where you can attach splitters to to factories we would need to like add like additional logic to the splitters and mergers and it made it like pretty ugly um so we just decided not to pursue that it's not impossible that we change our minds in the future and and make it so that you can attach them straight on because i believe there's an exception to conveyor lifts because they are technically a belt you can attach splitters directly on them i believe correct me if i'm wrong um but that's not but that's because it is a conveyor belt and it already has because the problem with with the also with this threading in the game is that when we update the threads in the game they're updated separately so belts are upgraded updated separately and then splitters and then factory buildings which would mean that the order of execution would be like a special case when a factory building could output directly to a splitter so we would like mess up that update order or something i'm not quite sure exactly how what was the issue there but that was one of the reasons too but it's not like an impossible thing to fix at some point but i don't think we are going to spend time on that because it's a lot of it's a lot of time for like maybe a little too little payout sort of so yeah you

how many dollars are there total in the world so here's how that system works i don't think if we've hannah has actually explained this to me it's actually no i think there's on the map there's like a bunch of spawn points and on each spawn point we designate like how many can spawn at the same time so like a spawn point can have like something between you know one and five or whatever or any number really but we we've probably not spawned more than like maybe three or four or something like that and once a spawn point has like spawn lizard doggos it won't spawn any new ones until you like get close to that spawn point again so there is a theoretical number of like min max amount of lizard doggos that can exist at the same time because if you like run to a spawn point and grab a little doggo and run back with it that spawn like that spawn point one spawn new ones i believe um so there's a there's the first person to reach the theoretical maximum of lizard doggos in one pen i'll buy you a coffee cup hell yeah on me yeah so so help us find out what that maximum number is and then find the doggers yeah challenge accepted i like it we'll buy you the more coffee mug yeah wait oh okay bye you owe me a pizza juice do i owe you a pizza now do you still love me i don't know i i've lost track like 16 times all right you still have me then i know you or me whatever pretty sure whatever yeah 90 doggos in one pen there's a lot of doggos that's a lot of doggos maybe hannah can figure it out i'm pretty sure she can maybe hannah has better things to do no does she maybe she does i fix the trees am i right i fix the floating rocks nobody cares about that the amount of dog was on the map yeah that's that's what we need to figure out right now it's the drake meme yeah let's spend a week on this

can we use beds to sleep overnight um so this is something that i've talked to mark as well about uh no is the answer to that question for a few reasons uh the biggest reason is because it doesn't make any sense for our game which is like it has like idle mechanics to it you know where your factory lines will produce stuff overnight so if you were able to like sleep over the night then you just like be speeding up time since the nights are so short currently in the game you don't really gain much from doing that

[Music]

and it doesn't like a lot of people would always point this out in like as a solution to like why the nights are so dark but the problem isn't that like you need to sleep to get through the nights the problem is that the nights are too dark like we need to fix the lighting in the game and this is something that we're gonna do in fact this is something that we're working on soon ish i think um yeah because we broke the lighting in in update four because we updated the engine version so that's something that we're working on fairly soon i think um so we don't like that idea of beings of sleep through the night um and some people like yeah but it could just be cosmetic and sleep tonight but it's also we find that weird um so that's why we won't do that we'll do something with the beds i think because it feels kind of weird that we have like an empty hub and you can't really do anything in there um but it's not gonna be that you're gonna be able to like sleep through the night and now we have lights yeah exactly so what's the problem sleepers of the week no sleep is for a weekend

uh can chainsaw use liquid in the future potentially we the reason why chainsaw only uses like solid biofuel up until now is because the that has that has made sense when you unlock or like rather when we intended to unlock the chainsaw and then further down the line it made sense like maybe to have other fuel and we haven't had that in the game because we haven't solved we haven't had support to like change fuels uh for the equipment and that's something that we're probably gonna do in the future i don't know exactly when that will happen um but that's why we haven't had in the game i'm pretty sure we're gonna have it at some point like turbo fuel and chainsaw or you know liquid biofuel which like what else do you use that for um so yeah

any changes of the coloring system yes there's going to be some changes in the color system i don't know exactly what those changes are going to be that's something that is uh most likely going to change or one thing that i am i think is going to change maybe it will check my answer is like declining more and more um i think there's some issues with the coloring system that we've been putting off um such as not being to like paint vehicles and stuff like that so i think there's gonna be somewhat of an overhaul of the coloring system and the fact that we're like using srgb uh or not wait are we using linear rgb in the game or not i can't remember whatever the the color values in game aren't linear i think or they are linear wait which one is the common one hsl yeah yeah but that's not the thing i'm talking about right now because you can even if you if you if you're like in a uh if you're like on the internet you're like look up a color and you see like oh that's a nice color and you try to match it uh in the game it will still not be correct and that's because the in-game color picker is is using srgb which isn't a linear color space but most applications use color like linear color space even if you have the same hex it will not like match uh that's just because we picked one of them so we're probably gonna change that as well because i think a lot of people are confused by that uh i think a lot of people don't even realize it um and yeah we do we do use hl hsl in the color picker but that's not what i'm talking about right now um but that's something we probably will also change at some point this is like ui that probably is is like in the backlog of things uh we just haven't been prioritized well enough so we'll probably happen in alignment with the coloring system

it's part of that is there a road map publicly no there's not and we talked we talked a bunch of times why we don't have that the tl dr is because we we want to be as reflect uh we want to like react as quickly as possible to community feedback uh we change our minds all the time even when we're developing things so we don't want to lock ourselves into a path and be like ah this is bad um this is also kind of why we're not like telling you guys you know everything we're working on because we need to manage expectations a bit in that regard because if we tell you guys like oh we're gonna we're gonna implement a big robot that's gonna blow the whole game up and make your computer become uh alive like and we start working on that and we're like we can't do that then it's going to be a bummer for everyone

so wind power mark when no

[Laughter]

um what is the what is the reasoning why we don't want to add wind wind power or solar power or stuff like that uh i think both of those have the problem where that you can effectively even if you make a system around it that kind of checks for uh certain restrictions that you can just build them everywhere of course they would still effectively be limitless in in this game i think uh and we don't really want that for power like you could just build a giant solar panel field and not have to worry about the power at all which kind of defeats the point of the power system where it's supposed to be a pain in your butt every now and then and you're supposed to want to fix it and make it all run smoothly and i feel that that those kind of power supplies would take away from it because they don't have enough limitations that we can effectively uh contain the balancing off gotcha remember we we also brought up like water turbines yeah i think those will be more in the realm of what the the geysers now do yeah and right now the guys have the issue where some people actually brought this up where they feel kind of what kind of they're super weak for when you get them the amount of power that you get from them uh so we might change it as well but for the yeah water turbines i would be more interested in them because you would have to place them potentially on fast flowing rivers or waterfalls which are a limited resource so to say in the world which is more interesting in my opinion because it kind of gets you around like you can't just pop them down anywhere you actually have to find a waterfall we get up a cliff to get to the waterfall place them there connecting to your factory i think it's a more interesting way to approach power with a bit of a challenge like that than just to give a building that just produces it out of thin air gotcha free power when do we get free power

what's the feature you wanna add to this so i personally really wanna improve the build modes uh i there are there are a lot i think we talked about this last week as well there are a few um there are a few things that really annoy me when you're building and i think there are somewhat easy to fix and they will improve building immensely so i would love to to improve some of those things first and foremost and maybe like a global grid situation but also like how you place you know um mergers and splitters i think that's one of the like places mergers and splitters uh not the fact that they don't clip on foundations when you're dragging them i'm already placed um conveyor belts and stuff like that i think that's really annoying uh stuff like you know the what are they called the the pipe connector thingies i can't remember what they're called that they rotate too i think they rotate too freely i want them to be able to clip snap it a bit better the snapping system we have for the guidelines thing when the green lines show up when you hold control that's a prototype that's not done at all um that's a prototype i made and then we're like alright i just put in the game whatever it works pipe junction thank you uh i want i want better clipping and like snapping with that so if you're if you're one of those people that like builds very methodically it just makes it so much easier to build because i think the addition of the the hover pack makes things so much better in the game i think the hover pack is like one of the best items in the game right now um so improving the the build modes would make the game a ton better imo god i love the hover pack i know it's so good right

um any mods you want to add to vanilla at some stage i'm sure there are mods that i'm sure there are things that we already thought about that there's a mod for currently um and um look guys like we worked in this game for a long time and uh we've had the opportunity to think about this game a lot so drones for instance was something that we've like thought about before we we released this game okay uh and it's been our like backlog since then um and and and obviously when when there's a mod for something that we've like thought about but not like released that's a good sign that like this is probably good feature to implement um so uh so yeah that be like it do lights is another thing lights was actually implemented in the game uh before it was it was out if you remember the stream me and jace did where we played the old version of the game that had lights that version had lights so it's been in the game since then and and at that point lights weren't that good for the game they didn't run that well um and that's why we didn't release the game with lights uh but now we're at the point where we feel confident with our solution for lights there's still i think a little bit tweaking left to do with the lights but we as far as i know i it looks pretty good and they work pretty well um also saw the street lights and the alpha screenshots yeah and i think i think people also data mined like the uh the lights out of the game uh so you know this was coming okay and we knew it was coming and it's it's here now so good times were had by all

object limit any chance to display how much is left somehow uh not really the the common misconception about the object limit is that people think that it's like the number of objects that are placed in the world but this is a memory thing so you know placing a foundation has a smaller object you object imprint in memory than placing a constructor has um and it's not simple to explain it because memory in programming is is very complex uh it's not just like a lot of people often like describe it as like it's a it's an array of of of um ones and zeros that's memory no that's not exactly how it works uh because they're there's like memory caches and and setups for how they're loaded and stuff like that but uh the system that handles all that has a limit in unreal engine and uh there's not much we can do about it uh we can optimize for it but there's always going to be a limit um and you can even load a save file that crashes due to the object limit you can you can sometimes load that save file and sometimes you can based on what's going on in the game at that point um so kind of hard to it's it's hard to explain we're optimizing for it um and maybe in the future it will be a bit better but there's all there'll always be like a limit to it

march 16. we still have questions now you know why does it go to experimental first and basically it's because we want the early access branch to be stable basically that's our stable branch and we do everything we can to make sure that the you know with testing internally to make sure that the game is as stable as possible when we bring it to experimental but we can never really be sure you know there's only like 30 40 of us or something like that and there's a bajillion of you guys and the feedback and the crash reports and all that kind of stuff that we get from you guys in the community um is just on a level that we couldn't get ourselves when testing internally so we put it we always put this stuff out all of our updates out on experimental first we gather as much information and feedback from you guys as possible fix any bugs all that kind of stuff stabilize the game and then once it's stable we bring it over to early access and that's just kind of the procedure that we have you might be wondering then so like okay so when's it gonna be on

soon as we can uh now you might be wondering okay well i'm on early access how do i get on get in on this experimental stuff you know i want i want to fly close to the sun i'm going to live life on the edge right i don't care if it's unstable i want update for the second it drops how do i get experimental i hear you say okay so everyone has access to experimental if you are on the epic version of the game in your epic library you actually will just have two versions of satisfactory there one's experimental one's early access download the experimental one and play if you're on steam and you want access to the experimental version you just find satisfactory in your steam library and you right click on it go to properties select betas there's a drop down box and then choose experimental from the drop down box and that's all it is the game will redownload the experimental version of the game one thing that you should be wary of is your save files whenever changing versions always back up your saves save files from early access to experimental are supported not necessarily the other way around and then also experimental is unstable so you never know what's gonna happen maybe you need to revert but then you can't and you've lost your save files now so back up your saves i'll leave the path to your save files in the description down below back them up before changing branches like that okay uh yeah so

um so are you pack packing the update 4 to an engine upgrade um so yeah um the engine upgrade won't go to early access before update 4 comes to early access so we will keep the engine upgrade on experimental branch as update 4 drops and then we're going to keep working on that until we feel that they both work and the main reason for that is because we there were a few like things that got way better for some people with the engine upgrade but some larger factory lines and stuff like that didn't get better um they got worse um so and that's annoying we don't want to like push the upgrade that can result in some people playing in early access getting a worse experience we would rather fix those issues before we do that and we don't have time to do that before update 4 launches so that's why we're doing it this way

you want to make a thing so you can do it um are there any green energy options in the game relative uh news of the game but cold feels bad uh so the thing with green energy is something we've thought about and something that we sort of toss up and oh i'm not sure what we want to do but i think we lean to not doing it but the option is still there and the reason the reason for doing it is because it i don't know it's kind of fun right but the reason to not do it is the point of the game is you work for a company that doesn't give a about the planet and your whole goal is to just exploit the planet at any cost spew carbon up into the air don't care destroy everything cut down every tree kill every creature mine up all the resources yeah um so that is the point of the game that is the story and lore so in order you know if you're gonna invest in green energy it lore wise it doesn't make much sense but if you balance that with fun then maybe it does make sense or maybe it will be a mod like i mean you know video games is escapism right like we we give you this option like you can go and and be as dirty as you want you can roll around in the mud and use coal as much as you go nuclear like do whatever you want and you guys are like no i want to be clean like which is honorable just don't build a factory and don't cut down trees yeah exactly yeah

[Music]

i mean i think i feel like that's something that could probably be done the the other thing with it is but we have like effects on our cat things but i don't know if that could just automatically be applied to everything but then the other thing is um is just the amount of work in general this is what i feel the amount of work in general for the arachnophobia mode uh we've always wanted to keep it low because wait so the comment is can we upload our own spider image of instead of the cat like you want to replace arachnophobia mode with spiders no no no no oh i don't think that's what they mean maybe not but that's how i read it i thought that was funny yeah so i don't know like i feel like that's going to take an amount of work that maybe isn't necessary but maybe i'm wrong a spider-man is neon cat nice it's like you're walking like in the forest and you're like
