finally finished

Post by AndrewSkier »

After ~10 attempts and giving up further each time was finally able to push through and finish.
Took "only" 280 hours, but with prior attempts was able to quickly move through first few science packs and a bit "cheating" with mining drones and transport drones.
Entire base logistics are actually done using transport drones with not a single train and only used bots for mall. Was running at ~30 fps at the end.
Can't wait for AE to come out and start over.

I was wondering that too. I wondered if him running at 30fps meant it was 280 game hours but close to double that in real world time.

I'd love to see a save to see how you did it.

I've had ~10 previous play throughs with each getting further and further (last 3 or 4 was at production or utility science) so first part of the game I've gone through quite fast. Didn't take me long to get through blue science.
The biggest time saver is using drones mods. Transportation drones are much more efficient and quicker than train networks. Mining drones are a bit cheaty with no power requirements and companion drones makes early start much easier.
I didn't get to 30 UPS until later stages of the game and first 80-90% was running at closer to 60.

I have small custom mod that should be optional. All this does is increase stack size on frequently transported items. I added it towards the end to help with UPS to limit number of transport drones that I had to have moving items around.

Did you need to use the buffer depot's with the drones to help get deliveries timely or is the routing better since I last used it (early 2020). Any other tips for using transport drones? I liked them in theory as a different way to build/design the logistics of a base but the throughput was a bummer.

Didn't use any buffer depots. Don't like how the function.
Few tips:
- chain as many processes as possible (don't move grade 1 to process to grade 2 then 3 by drones). Build those processes as one unit and only move finished products and as few intermediate as possible.
- liquids are not as efficient to move. Try to product liquids if possible by each production area.
- I've created small mod that changes stack size for products I moved a lot and have low stack count. Helps with not having to have too many drones moving your goods.
- Use road network reader with circuits for priority production. For example on cages, I only produce them to provide to network if network is below < 9k cages. Otherwise slaughter processing will get overloaded with cages
- use grid system for easy movement of drones
