Factroio Research Calculator

Post by lolman360 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 5:09 am


Tired of crunching numbers to see how lab speed and number of labs affect time taken for research?
Bored of multiplying science packs needed by the numbers on the wiki to find out how much raw resources you need?
Fear not!
The Factorio Research Calculator is here!
Find out how long research takes even with multiple labs and lab speed bonus!
(Multiple labs assumes all labs are constantly running)

How to use

Simply unzip the file to anywhere, run WindowsApplication1 and it will install and start shortly after.
After installation, just run WindowsApplication1 for the program to work
Since it is coded in Visual Basic and designed for Windows, it will only run on Windows.

Your app is neat (and works under Linux as well, using wine), but there are better online calculators that will work on any OS or device.

Also, downloading executables makes me nervous if I don't know the source. Have you considered publishing the source code?
