Alphabetic letter production

Post by ssilk » Thu Mar 27, 2014 11:57 pm

Yes, right: producing letters.

- sense: none.
- show-effect: gigantic
- fun: lol

You can produce 26 letters and the factorio wheel, which is rotating, when powered, after researching typewriting.

You can place them on ground like any other item. They need a space of - let's say - 2x3. Then you can craft the letters or assemble them. They are pretty cheap. :)

You can write something.

FACTORIO for example. Or the station names besides. Or the name of your world.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

Yes, I can see the need for that.
Only - 2x3 is very small! How about 8x5? (Like those old MS-DOS fonts, which were 8x5 pixels, only they won't be pixellated :D )
