Diamond-shaped Megabase with Octagonal Train Grid

Hi everyone,
I already shared this on reddit yesterday but I guess not everyone is on there so I thought I'd share it here as well. I built a 1k SPM Megabase using Factorissimo and LTN (and quite a few QOL mods). It consists of 14 octagonal cells each containing 4 factorissimo mk3 buildings (well, for some reason one of them only has 3. Don't ask me why) and 4 cells on the sides to unload ore from outpost to grid trains.
The factory is run almost exclusively by 1-4 trains while ores are brought in by 3-12 trains.
Power consumption is around 5 and 6 GW and is mostly supplied by a nested nuclear power plant inside one of the buildings. All those solar panels generate around 800MW.
The grid is left-hand drive (kind of by accident, in the beginning I got run over a few times because I expected trains to come from the other side) and works very smoothly for 1-4 trains. There are lots of waiting positions that still allow for passing trains.
I made two different versions:
The one used here (Blueprint) and one with slimmer stations for a bot base without factorissimo: Blueprint -- Picture
All blueprints only include the rail and power grid.


There are of course More Pictures and a really crappily edited Video (I try to blow up the base by a chain reaction of power plants. Unfortunately my computer isn't completely up to the task)

If anybody wants to go for a walk in it, here's a save file (100MB). You will need Factorissimo2, LTN, LTN combinator and I'd recommend the Jetpack Mod. I'm not sure how this works, I guess my inventory is included in the save file? Otherwise there is a jetpack mk4 and some nuclear fuel at the spawn point so you can go for a flight.

I'd be happy to hear what you think :)
I will now be busy downloading the M.I.R.V mod and turning this thing into dust again. And I will love every second of it just as I have building it :D

EDIT: I forgot to put in the LTN Depot. Blueprint -- Picture
EDIT 2: New video

Videos where you are not adressed as a follower that need to like and suscribe are refreshing :). Plus the relaxing music, quick show of key elements, made the video pleasant to watch.

The base itself is impressive the overall impression of fullfilness from the decoration and octogonal shape make it look like one of those renaissance fortification by Vauban.

And the canals are something i think looks very good, i also like the infinitly nested nuclear reactor but my favourite was the moment in the video where you see the trains networks in mapview, could have looked at this for hours, i think the longer you look at it the more likely you are to get a new idea :).

I'm not looking for followers, I'm just not a cult person I guess :)

Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it!
