Just use the wiki and your brain to do a little bit of basic math (that eventually will get complicated as the game goes along, but you can always simplify it) and you will be able to figure out almost everything of what you need for this game.Canyew wrote:Thanks for the tips, honestly.

As a question I have. is there a page with resources that show how much of X you should be making to produce Y? Like for example how this was mentioned:
I didn't really see this mentioned on the wiki. I know the game is in alpha but maybe a page that goes over this sort of stuff wouldn't be a bad idea.Piranha wrote:for the (Green) Electronic Circuits, the common ratio is 3 Copper Cable factories to 2 (Green) Electronic Circuits).

Takes: 1 Metal + 3 Copper Cable
OutPut: 1 Electronic Circuit
Produces in 0.5 seconds

Takes: 1 Copper Plate
Output: 2 Copper Cable
Produces in 0.5 Seconds
Therefore the ideal lowest ratio is 6 Copper Cables to 2 Electronic Circuits, or 3 Copper Cable Factories to 2 Electronic Circuit Factories. This is also because they both produce at 0.5 Seconds, so using the 3:2 ratio the Electronic Circuit factory has no down time as long as the Copper and Metal Plates have full lines.
The easiest way to set this up is to have a Copper Cable for each Electronic Circuit factory with the extra (third) Copper Cable factory in the middle so that both Electronic Circuit factories can grab from it. Also leaves a nice space for when you have the larger Electric Poles
Here's a good example found through google with the search "Factorio Green Circuit":
And another similar design but will produce even faster using the blue inserters.
Hope that helps you out and you can then use the wiki to find all the other best ratios for your factory!
