[WIP] 1000 Science/m

Post by Phantom329 »

I've been redoing my 1000 science per minute setups since the update changed the recipes. I have Red, Green, Gray, and Blue finished but I got stuck on Purple and am starting on Yellow now. I could use some help with Purple because I try to get a good ratio and it ends up a mess. Check out what I have so far and let me know if you guys have any suggestions or ideas.

Here are the first four sciences

Red 1k/m


Green 1k/m


Gray 1k/m


Blue 1k/m


Purple [WIP]


[0.16] Gray 1k/m


[0.16] Blue 1k/m


[0.16] Purple 1k/m


[0.16] Yellow 1k/m

Something like this maybe for purple:

Or this:

Distributing the large number of rails is tricky though. You could do two 2 assemblers with 8 beacons per blue belt (technically only needs 1.8) and direct insert the iron sticks. Then run three blue belts to the science assemblers:

Not sure if I would use direct insertion for the engines. The ratio is almost 2:1 there. So you are having an awful lot of engine assemblers doing nothing

Mine is also still WIP, and isn't fed enough, but this is my plan for sending overkill rails to purple while keeping full density & beaconage. It'll probably need to be left-fed by tons of stone/steel/rods as well.

I am currently upgrading my base to 1k spm, using my own builds as much as possible. So naturally I stumbled across this thread searching for inspiration when working on my earlier science builds. I incorporated some of your ideas into my builds, which are working great :) thanks for that! To repay the favor I would like to share my build for production (purple) science. One thing of note is that you mentioned perfect ratios. This build has a bit of overcapacity (28 instead of 24 rail assemblers IIRC) on rail production. IMO, it's a small price to pay for everything lining up nicely. It uses direct insertion for iron sticks -> rails -> production science and produces the modules and furnaces on location. I could make it more compact if I wanted, but considering I like my builds to use straight lines as much as possible plus the fact that I consider belt weaving heresy, I am quite happy with how it turned out.

So here it is. Hope it will help you, or if not, anyone else :lol:
