UPS Wars 5: Low density structure (LDS)

Post by domisum »

Produce 30k/min low density structure (~20k spm) and deliver them to the red concrete. Achieve this while keeping UPS as high as possible!

Make sure your factory is stable and produces the output specified above for at least an hour of game time.

  • Only use entities available in freeplay, except for: Electric energy interface, infinity chests for destroying the end product (these may only be placed on the red concrete) and infinity chests for train fuel
  • Don't place any entities from the production tab on hazard concrete or red concrete
  • Don't change the resources or tiles of the map. You may duplicate cells if you need additional space
  • Don't change technology levels
  • You may use the editor and mods to construct the factory, but saves must be submitted without mods
Mining productivity 180 (100% + 1800% = 1900%)
Worker Robot speed 16 (100% + 955% = 1055%)
EDIT: The contest was open until 2022-04-22 23:59:59 UTC. No more factories will be added to the leaderboards.

Submit factories by replying to this post or the reddit post with a world download. Please include a few screenshots in your reply to allow others to take a look at your factory without having to open up the save. If you want to, explain the techniques you used and the challenges you overcame.

You may submit multiple factories by giving them different titles. Feel free to submit improved versions of previous submissions.

Benchmarks will be performed using this command

Code: Select all

factorio.exe --benchmark-ticks 100000 --benchmark-runs 5 --benchmark-sanitize --benchmark ""
on my machine: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, DDR4-4000 14-15-15-35, Windows 10

May the UPS be ever in your favor!
