The factorio docs

Created Art by yourself (draw, paint, craft, cosplay, video, wallpaper, ...) with and around Factorio.

NOT for screenshots or videos of the actual game and discussions around them (see for that "Show your creations").

The factorio docs

I like to think that the machines in factorio are built from blueprints that are bought by the factorio company (or whatever organisation that makes this cancerous factory growth happen).
So i decided to write datasheets (beacause im a wierdo that thinks that these things are fun) for the different items in factorio.

Currently there is only 1 (badly written) datasheet for combinators. I will finish it and another when i have more time.

These remind me of the Shenzhen I/O docs (pdf link), especially when thinking about the upcoming programmable speaker (FFF #175, found in page 27 of the linked pdf), were you perhaps inspired by it or maybe the TIS-100 manual?

:lol:

I can honestly say that if everything else fails you can still get a job as documentator (is that a word?) for various dubious electronic devices.

You should also look at the power consumption and internal capacitor. (Christ)
I own and play Shenzien i/o, but i only started in the middle of making 3rd page
I like to think that the datsheet would be less of a tutorial if i didin't, though.

Love this idea - was just thinking the other day while looking at Shenzhen that it would be cool if Factorio had something similar.
Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.

As an electronic hobbyist who looks at component datasheets often, I like this :)
