Mod portal link: Industrial RevolutionIndustrial Revolution is currently in "beta". While it's on 0.x.x, there are likely to be balance changes. Once balancing is done and after Factorio 0.17 stable has been released, the mod will go to 1.0.0 and balance changes will be very rare after that.
If you want to report a bug or an issue, the best place is the mod portal Discussion page.
SummaryWork your way through Ages of technology, chasing that elusive rocket. 500+ new icons, 35+ new machines and buildings, new technologies, recipes, and mechanics. Lovely high-resolution animations. Lasers and rivets all over the shop. And a grand total of one tinted vanilla icon.
This mod is for experienced players who want to greatly broaden and lengthen the vanilla experience, who enjoy building large and building clever, but don't feel like sitting a chemistry exam to understand the game. It's inspired by the fun I had playing Factorio 0.16 and Minecraft mods.
See the mod portal for full details and screenshots.
Future expansionThere is currently not a great deal to do with the final post-rocket tier of materials. More wrinkles on post-rocket play will be added later, with a view to scaling megabases. This is unlikely to happen before the end of 2019.
CompatibilityFor an up-to-date list of what is directly supported, what is known to work, and what is known to be completely incompatible with IR, see the FAQ on the mod portal.
