10k spm base, aesthetic rating:0/10

Post by crowrog »

Hi there, I will keep this short. This is a 10kspm base made of 100 mini factories producing 100spm each. The idea is to make a new player friendly experience. It is inspired by

-Waterfill or similar mod is highly recommended. Here is what I have.

-Higher than 75% all resource frequency is recommended.
-Water to be set to 17% scale and 17% coverage is recommended if running without mods like waterfill.
-Train skill 1/10 (Watching any factorio train introduction video for 5 minutes)
-Patience 9/10

I am surprised pastebin let you keep that string. They always delete mine after only a few seconds.

I made a 10kspm base using modular raw-to-science units like that, but went for 500spm and used many-to-many ore trains rather than independent local units like this.

Did you consider doing direct-to-train mining to avoid the belts and inserters around ore fields? I think it makes it even more standard to set up...

It would look 'worse' if its shape wasn't regular, that's not 0/10 !

Also there are some stuff lining up, furnaces, assemblies , solar pannels so that's a plus !

Maybe you could show your module and solar pannel production area, to give an idea of what's required/ the speed at which you can expand.

Have you considered making a factory of the size you use for the raw-to-science, but dedicated to modules production ? so that you could easily increase production by copy pasting it in the grid you already use, as you say in your video it seem to be the bottleneck for faster expansion, once you have one you may get tempted to do the same for nuclear power, and the area that does the solar pannels and/or other building materials, then you could remove your middle "main bus" :)
