I’m fully aware inflation exists, it’s a fairly basic concept.

I don’t believe however retroactively applying inflation to the price of your released and finished product is the real reason you hiked the cost up.

So it is just about you not believing, and I probably can't do much about it.
Just note, that inflation is kind of a bigger deal here in Czech, as it is around double of what the dollar has, and we are just used to think about it and consider it more. I don't find it reasonable for the rate of inflation to be dictating the rate of products getting cheaper.
Also, it is not a finished product, Factorio is developed full time by the whole team, and there are quite a lot of things already fully implemented that will improve the game for everyone, not just buyers of the expansion (features), we just don't write the FFF at these days (although, several are already written, and just waiting for the right time).
The reason we don't write FFF is not that we wouldn't have what to show, we just don't want to tease people with so many cool things too long before the actual release, so there is a good intention again. I would guess, that you will choose to not believe again, but ...

I've never seen a fully released game retroactively increase its price because of "inflation". CoD 4 should be selling for $97 now.

I've also never seen such a tone deaf reply from a developer except maybe Blizzard.

As you write inflation in quotes, I would like to ask. Are you inflation denier, and you think it doesn't exist or something?

Each distribution platform has a different method and system for changing the price, and take different lengths of time to update the price.

Good day Engineers,

Next week, on Thursday 26th January 2023, we will increase the base price of Factorio from $30 to $35.

This is an adjustment to account for the level of inflation since the Steam release in 2016.

Hello, another year has come and gone.

We know this year we were very sparse with any details about the expansion, and it is what you all really want to hear about. Trust me we really want to tell you about it, and in time we will. There are still major sections of the gameplay being changed and adjusted, and if we tell you about them now, the information would quickly become outdated and inaccurate.

For now, we can offer this Christmas postcard Albert has made, which has a sneak peek of some new item icons.

As well, we do have some other topics we can discuss.


Sales update

This year we have reached another sales milestone, with 3.5 million sales being passed this Christmas. We are still having steady and consistent sales of about 500,000 each year, which in retrospect validates the original no-sale policy ...

Look at what is happening with Kerbal Space Program 2. Already burning goodwill. Better to not build hype until you know you can deliver.

Can you explain a bit more what is happening with KSP 2?

Try toggling to editor (type /editor in the console) and seeing if the game is paused there (the "time" panel).

Its the classic design technique, of always leaving room for improvement :)

Unrelated question OP: How do you make such good video/gif out of Factorio? Like that zoom in / zoom out and that panning was so smooth, how do you do it?

I used a console command to start a cutscene, something like:

/c
game.player.set_controller
{
  type = defines.controllers.cutscene,
  waypoints =
  {
    {
      position = game.player.position,
      transition_time = 1,
      time_to_wait = 60,
      zoom = 2
    },
    {
      position = game.player.position,
      transition_time = 3 * 60,
      time_to_wait = 60,
      zoom = 0.5
    },
    {
      position = {0,0},
      transition_time = 3 * 60,
      time_to_wait = 60,
      zoom = 0.5
    },
    {
      position = {0,0},
      transition_time = 3 * 60,
      time_to_wait = 60,
      zoom = 2
    },
  }
}

Does the drone crashing impact buildings? Or biters? Can you control where it crashes? It's a cool balance to have it destroyed so you have to expend resources to build more. Wondering if you deliver in the middle of a big base could you accidentally destroy some buildings.

The crashing doesn't cause any damage, its just a visual effect. I was thinking to make it damage things, but since the final suicide flight path is randomised, it would be some unpredictable mechanic, and people would probably ask that I make it try to land somewhere safe.
