Welcome to the fifth issue of Alt-F4, and we’re still picking up steam! Many contributors, translators and techies are being busy bees helping to further the project, which is just great.

In actual news, this week pocarski makes the case for allowing landfill to be dug up again, Romner follows up their submission from last week by talking about obliterating biters with the power of fusion, and Dr.MagPie takes us to the Factorio Zone!

There’s also an action report about the Big Community Games launch party, which should totally haven been covered last week. Completely my (Therena’s) bad. Finally, Raiguard shares an exciting mod of his with all of us. Let’s get to it!

Welcome to the second issue of Alt-F4, the community-driven follow-on to the Factorio Friday Facts. And man, am I always pleasantly surprised by the community. Within hours of publishing the first issue, the Discord was filled with enthusiastic people that were willing to help at all stages of the process. One thing you might have noticed is that the page you’re reading this on got a small upgrade here and there. Thanks to everyone who has been so enthusiastic about the project!

Alt-F4 #1 - We hebben uw hulp nodig!

Geschreven door Therenas, on 21-08-2020

Welkom bij de allereerste editie van de ‘Alternative Factorio Friday Fan Facts’ (ook bekend als Alt-F4), de community-gedreven opvolger van de eerbiedwaardige Factorio Friday Facts. Het is bedoeld om de leegte te vullen die de stopzetting van de FFF in ons hart heeft achtergelaten. Om elke vrijdag het gapende gat in onze agenda’s te vullen, streven we ernaar om een ​​verscheidenheid aan inhoud te bieden, gemaakt door de gemeenschap. Onderwerpen als community-showcases, mod-spotlights en artikelen over Factorio-updates zullen veel voorkomende onderwerpen zijn, maar vrijwel alles wat geweldig is en Factorio-gerelateerd is, is welkom.
