Assembling Machine time (speed)

Post by jader201 » Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:54 am

I've been playing Factorio for a long time, and have just realized that the time it takes assembling machines to craft an item is slower than the time it takes to craft the same item by hand.

For example, Science Pack 3 takes 12 seconds to craft by hand (which matches the time it says for Science Pack 3). But when using an Assembly Machine 2, I timed that it takes about 15 seconds to produce. If you drop two Speed Module 1s on the Assembly Machine 2, it will then take 12 seconds.

And to be clear, this is with full electricity, and my CPU/VPU are pretty good, so no frame rate drops to cause lost ticks (everything is butter smooth).

So are Assembly Machines slower by design? If so, is there somewhere that lists the speed of an unmodified assembly machine? Are they different between AM1, 2, etc.?
