Automation: The Quest for Factory

SirfishSirfish Member Posts: 1,327 ✭✭✭
For many many years, the stars have been home to some of the most wonderous planets.
Today, you have made planetfall on a lush earthlike planet. Your mission?

Destroy it all

ok new game, I have 165 hours in factorio. So... Uhhhh... Yep.

Your goal is to automate everything, destroy your rival factories. And take over the world.

Okie dokie.

Here's how you play the game.
You take 1 action a turn
Aka "I mine for some stone"

You can make items pretty easily. Like "I make a stone auto-turret"

your goal is to make a factory that can mass produce the resources to defeat your enemies, the other factory builders. and even... the aliens!

To Start:
Factory Name:
Factory Location: (Describe where it is)
I'm just here to do stuff and play games because I am unproductive and should learn how to do something with my life but instead i'm just going be here and do nothing

    Your factory drop pod smacks down on a huge dune. Launching sand everywhere.
    Inside the drop pod is the materials to begin some early processing. Including some smelterying machines. And a couple of mining/hauling robots and a construction device

    Ker-thump! the pod lands down in the shade of a towering mountain.
    Onboard your pod is the equipment to create a self-sustaining factory, aka smelters, drills and some robots.

    I haul some sand.

    You send out some of your haulerbots to dig up and haul some sand

    Slamn, your pod smacks down on the beach of a lush jungle ocean. You can spot a cave nearby,
    Onboard your pod is the equipment to create a self-sustaining factory, aka smelters, drills and some robots.

    Wham! Your pod nearly tips over on the hill, the jungle creeping up on the mountain you landed on
    Onboard your pod is the equipment to create a self-sustaining factory, aka smelters, drills and some robots.

    More hauling sand

    ok,
    you haul 50 tons of sand to your pod.

    I use more scrap steel to build refineries.

    I attach a sucction machine to succ up water to cool the refineries. If they get too hot, that is.

    Send more bots into the caves.

    You begin construction on a refinery using Sheet Steel.

    it's based off of automating everything factorio style, you start with simple auto drills and no power r/n
    also robots

    You set the drill on what your detector indicates is a decently rich vein of various unsorted ores.
    You are now producing:
    1 Unsorted Ore - Turn

    I'll send robots to look around. I will also place another drill somewhere else. Production is the key.
