Place the NESTT_0.1.0.zip in the mods folder.
This mod is designed to be played with a custom scenario.
Unpack scenarios.rar, you will get a folder called scenario, place this folder one layer above the mods folder, AKA the Application directory
Enter your train and build inside it. The train will mine resources for you so you will never have to stop it. Take your base with you wherever you go.
Do keep in mind that this is a WIP that is very unbalanced.
View this video for a quick intro on how to play this mod.
Why I made this mod:
After finishing Vanilla, I tried some of the big mods, but couldn't really get into them. Part of the reason is that there is very little documentation, but I also felt like the game really didn't need the extra complexity that the mods where adding. I wanted a mod that gave a different gameplay experience, but did not add much complexity. Since I couldn't find such a mod, I started thinking of making one myself.
Remember in the Factorio promo video a train runs over a biter? That never happened during my vanilla gameplays. Mostly because I would clear out biter bases just as my pollution got to them. In this mod you will be getting lots and lots of roadkill.
Defending a large base is tedious. Putting everything in a train means no more running across the base to deal with biters.
In vanilla there is really not much exploration and expansion going on. Even with RSO(one of my favorite mods) I only expanded to a few outposts. Part of the reason is that it is hard to move you base. With your entire base in a train, all you need to do is lay the tracks(upcoming feature)
It's a challenge to build your base in a narrow space, but also a boon as you can easily make blueprints of entire compartments and place them since they are the same size.
Inspiration for this mod came from Snowpiercer, SpaceChem, Mad Max.

This is my first mod so I learned a lot by reading their code.
