factory planning tool

Post by kalebsrevenge »

After several hundred hours of fun in factorio me and a friendare wanting to make the most efficient base possible between us but we have hit a snag i planning we have the various calculations for production done as we are both good at math but have all the artistic talent of a dog copping a squat.
This leads onto the reason i am asking for help we want a paint-esque tool to lan the actual layout of the base that isnt gona turn into shitty paint squiggles on a paint file.
sorry if this is the wrong section but it's an unusual topic.
thanks for any replies and remember the when life gives you lemons use them to grow the factory.

... those two and the recommendation to plan your base backwards. Meaning, set the goal (eg 100 sci/min) and then iteratively plan your base from there to the start.

There's also in-game mods for this, if you're willing to use them. They're convenient because they're right inside the game, and can work with any other mods you might have installed. Factory Planner is my recommendation. There's also Helmod, but it is significantly harder to use.
Don't forget, you're here forever.
