Is there any topic that guides Factorio? Or can you show me the tips?

[Koub] Moved to gameplay help.
You may start by playing the campaign. It will help you grasp the basics.
There is also the wiki.
There are also a massive load of let's play videos on youtube.
And if all this fails, you can ask here.

I'm fairly new to the game, and learned a lot from watching KatherineOfSky.
She tells what she does, and why she does it.

And when I get stuck, I check the Wiki.

A very helpful tip is to turn on the 'ALT-mode' which shows much more clearly what is happening in your factory.

And in my opinion stay away from using blueprints from other players until you understand the game better.
Using a blue print doesn't make you understand what is happening, and why the components are arranged as they are in that blueprint.

Other than that, just build, enjoy, analyse and rebuild....

That reminds me of two invaluable mods for improving understanding: Bottleneck and Max Rate Calculator.
