excellent points. I'm midly irritated by people thinking

that at least some times, the only way to use bot is personal armor and fusion reactor.
So I'm not seing things straight and am exagerating a bit.
As for construction speed goes, 50 unupgraded bots are at least a bit better than the human player.I now have around 500 construction and 500 logistics bots (no research beyond green) and TBH they are nearly worthless.
It takes them 1m47 to build that mine, and it took me 1m52.
- Even though that's not what a typical factory is, a straight line 2 or 3 buildings large would be faster by hand.
- The build is dense and simplistic. Any sparser or more intricate build (eg a very simple assembly line) would be built faster by bots.
- The build has ca 250 objects which is kind of a worse case scenario, since they have to recharge themselves and try to do so all at the same time. Less than 200 and the bots don't have to recharge, significantly more than 250 objects and the charging gets spread out, removing idle time.
