My latest factory

Post by Boogieman14 » Mon Oct 13, 2014 11:16 pm

So I've been building a new factory, 81 hours in now.

Mods used:
- Automatic Rail Laying Machine (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=4287)
- Advanced Radars (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... 62&p=39071)
- Landfill (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=4973)
- Resource Monitor (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=2855)
- The Fat Controller (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=4504)
- Resource Spawner Overhaul (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=4761)
- Bob's Power (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =51&t=4831)
- MoreLight (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=6082)
- Larger Inventory (https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =14&t=5891)
- I had actually loaded Roadworks as well, but since I just don't use cars at all I removed it at about 60 hours in so I wouldn't have to deal with limestone.

For this factory, I set myself a few groundrules:
- No solar power (except for a handful of self-powered radar stations)
- No ore handling using bots
- Initially I had planned to have just one incoming goods station (multiple stops) and build a big ore sorter, but at some point this ran into some scaling problems so I abandoned that concept and went for dedicated unloaders instead.

So I actually have two stages of the game to show:
1) the game at 60 hours, just as I removed Roadworks and started the switch to dedicated unloaders
2) the game at 80 hours

Note: to view the full images, right-click and open in new tab/window

So, just shy of 82 hours into the game. The world map actually isn't that much bigger than the 60 hour one, guess much of the 20 hours was spent refactoring the base and hooking up some already discovered resources. I also just re-enabled Roadworks, because it turns out Resource Spawner Overhaul can't handle removal of ores from the game. It crashes when a new chunk needs to be generated.

That's my story for this factory so far. I must admit, I'm at a point now where I usually get a tad bored and start a new map, so chances are the story won't progress much further.

If anyone wants to take a look around my factory, feel free :)

Interesting naming/numbering system for the resources/stops.
Could just use C instead of Coal, since it's mostly Carbon ;)
I'm usually a little more verbose, but my fields and stations tend along the same lines.

Good point, I guess C for Coal is in fact closer to reality than Cu for Copper ore or Fe for Iron ore :) (ore is of course nowhere near the pure element)

Just before bed last night, I figured I could give F-Mod a try, that looks like a nice bit of a resource sink to keep the game going for a while longer.. I can already see myself building massive science pack setups :shock:

So to keep the game going for a while longer, I've added all of Bob's mods and added and removed F-Mod. After fiddling with all the new metals Bob introduced, I've decided I'm going to set up a new base somewhere faraway to do a proper systematic attempt at mod production. To that end, I've seriously beefed up my wall production:

This is the machinery I've set up for that, using Bob's Assemblers:

6 Speed 3's in each furnace (just for shits 'n giggles):

Packed express belt wasn't able to bring stone in fast enough, so I just dropped some requesters in (crazy, I know)
The factories are still waiting for bricks :lol:
