factorio inspired game

Postby meems » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:12 pm

someone got hyped by factorio, and converted the hype into making a game - called production line.

I've had a look. Looks uninspired and generic to me. Its a nice idea to have the factory create things like cars, but the mechanics of the game look so generic and lack lustre. Logistic gameplay - the still underdeveloped core gameplay of factorio, is even less developed in production line. Connect 4 or 5 assemblers, which is trivial to do, requiring virtually no thinking, and certainly no puzzling, and get cars.

What a waste of effort. If only I could get a leash on all the kids out there who're foaming at the mouth with energy trying to make their own factorio games, I could direct their work in the right direction.

Uh, not sure if you know it, but....there were like, buildings in the real world producing real things for....decades! And those buildings even have...production lines in it. And I think they even did it before Factorio did it. :o

Jokes aside, I think its a completely different game, different approach, different almost everything pretty much. looks just like a fun little tycoon game about production lines with some production line logic in it. looks neat!

No need to look at factorio to get inspired for that really. I will stick to factorio though :lol:

lul. Looks good except for one thing, its effectively a simplified copy of factorio. With the minor adjustment of being in a factory rather than a open world.

I think factorio would work as a set of 'build this out of these' missions inside a confined space. But that's easily inside the scope of a factorio mod.

Its impressive what this coder has done, but unless he adds something special that factorio doesn't have, I think he's not made any progress. Also at the moment its so close to factorio I wonder if its some sort of copyright infringement.

Production Line is an awesome GAME! it is clearly not a copy of Factorio. The detail is amazing, you can customize and upgrade your factory.
you have to manage import and export of your parts. you all should give it a try! the developer is great in communication with the fanbase many features got dirctly from the fans into the build.
