Factorio (Version 1.0) – What is the New

This guide shows what the new is in Factorio (Version 1.0).

What is the New

  • spidertron
  • new blueprint library
  • copy paste functionality
  • upgrade planners
  • blueprint building in map mode
  • Lots of new visuals and sounds

They added a new turret/wagon called artillery that is a very long range weapon that targets and destroys spawners and worms (but does nothing to normal enemies).

The belts now function with a proper throughput of 15, 30 and 45 instead of the weird number they used before.

Quite a few of mid and late game recipes and technologies changed (this include oil refining, the first recipe only produces petroleum gas and only the advanced recipe produces all 3 types).

The hotbar at the bottom is no longer an extention of the inventory so things changed a bit on how to use it.

The UI changed, quality of life functions were added, a lot of items and entities got a new look and/or sound, the overall performances were increased as well.

So a lot of polishing but not really much in terms of new content.
