Robot Overload

Post by keyboardhack » Sun Aug 24, 2014 12:07 am

Thought i would share my way of using robots for everything.

The factories work by limiting the output, by how much there is the in provider chest next to so it doesn't continiously produce items.
Robots fly around and makes sure that every factory has what it needs and also exterminates any need for belts.

Unfortunately this design is also rather boring as it makes it way to easy to make everything in the game, so i will soon abbandon this world and move along to another 100% belt powered world, but i thought i would share this and get your thought on the design first :)

This is pretty much the optimal design for an "everything factory". Congrats on figuring it out on your own.

You could save a little bit of space by putting furnaces/inserters on both sides of the belts, and assemblers/inserters on both sides of the chests.

put the factorys like this

saves you a lot of space.

the furnance setup is nice. I usually go for the 3 belt setup but in the long run you save more space :)

Very nice and very compact design with the factorys. Saves a lot of space and look good doing it.
The reason i spaced out my factorys is that it allows me to go through instead of around my factorys which is something i prefer.
