Diagonal madness

Clever and beautiful constructions, bigger than two chunks
- Defense: killing biters as an art
- Castles, Throne Rooms, Decorations (comfortable living in the Factorio World)
- Main Bus Concepts
- Modular Systems, Factory Streets, show how all works together
- Megabases
Please provide us with blueprints or saves, if that makes sense of course.

Diagonal madness

I wanted to do something different to just-another-main-bus-factory, so here is fully diagonal base ;)
Its not a megabase and has many problems with resource balance and etc... But my goal was just to try out a new crazy setup and maybe launch a single rocket.

Final view of the factory:

First iron smelting

Green circuits and first science setup

Steel smelting

Labs setup redesigned

A sort of bus

By the time factory looks as follows

I built a wall to defend against biters:

First outpost and crazy railway XD

Nuclear power

And finally the rocket

This is awesome! But OMG the first time I looked at the second image... my OCD went off, like it hurt. After seeing the pics below that one though it was much easier. This deserves some attention 'cause I have never seen anyone make a base like this!

Code: Select all

                     O
                  I
               R
            O
         T

This is so strange to look at. It's a very unique idea.
