Factorio uses a dynamic difficulty system to affect progression rate, enemy behavior, and expansion. By using various commands, you can alter your world and/or playstyle post world generation
NOTE: Using these commands will disable achievements in your map!
Changing Difficulty Mid-Game Via Console Command.
To use the in-game console, press the Tilde key below the ESC key. This will open a text box where you can chat with other players and use console commands.
Changing Enemy Difficulty
Expansion is a group of biters/spitters that leave their base to create a new base, which will consist of as many worms/nests as there are members in the group.
To read more about Enemies, visit the enemies page on the Factorio Wiki here.
Each second in-game is 3600 ticks, so for a time frame multiply it by that.
Setting minimum expansion:
/c game.map_settings.enemy_expansion.min_expansion_cooldown = <minutes>*3600
Setting maximum expansion:
/c game.map_settings.enemy_expansion.max_expansion_cooldown = <minutes>*3600
Keep in mind, these values must be between 43600 and 123600.
Other adjustments you can make to enemies
Biters ignore player structures and build next to walls
/c game.map_settings.enemy_expansion.min_player_base_distance = -1
Distance bases can spawn next to each other (default 3)
/c game.map_settings.enemy_expansion.min_base_spacing = 1
Distance between an existing and new base (default 7)
/c game.map_settings.enemy_expansion.max_expansion_distance = 4
Speed at which Enemies evolve based on pollution
