This train mission really needs to have the gather amounts lowered. They're out by like a factor of 10.

Are there any good guides to how to set up the big gorgeous bus driven factories that I see posted here?

I'm trying to decipher them from the screenshots but you can only zoom in so far before everything becomes a blob.

help?


The basic principle is mats move left to right in a tight main buss of belts. When you want to make something new you spit the mats belts you need for it and have the new branches move perpendicular to the main bus until you get above or below the main bus. The belts your branch cross get sent underground. Then you pull mats off this branch below or above the main bus and process them and add the result to the main bus in a new belt.

*edit: if you use the one belt per mat and one lain left empty for merging like I do. It helps if you make sure that the lain that has the mat is always the same one, and that it is the side that your processing will happen on.

So all my main bus travels left to right and has the mats on the bottom of each belt. So all my processing is done below the main bus.

This plus the picture on page 3 were super helpful. Thanks!

Is there a prettier way to put items on the close side of the belt?

(Also you can see the results of babby's first bus, thanks guys!)

I should have known explosives were the answer.

Explosives are always the answer. Unless the answer is bots.

I'm just now getting into loving about with oil, but I'm finding the enemies in sandbox mode to be SUPER easy. I'm playing full black.

If I restart with more aggressive/plentiful enemies am I going to regret it later? I prefer a Dwarf Fortressy kind of challenge.
