Description: Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories.
You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. Use your imagination to design your factory, combine simple elements into ingenious structures, apply management skills to keep it working and finally protect it from the creatures who don’t really like you.
- Mining, logistic and production systems
This is the core of the game. Mining drills digging the ground for minerals. Robotic arms moving material from one side to another. Lines of furnaces smelting the precious ores. Assembling Machines automatically building further products. And conveyor belts literally everywhere.
So you have all these machines, but they don’t run for free. You need to make enough electricity to power them up. Will you go for cheap steam, that makes tons of pollution or expensive but eco friendly solar?
You are clever and skilfull. But you don’t know everything out of the box. Research the technologies to make your way up the tree to completely automated and self sufficient factories.
- Oil refining
There is more to the production than just minerals. This planet is rich in oil as well. And you will need it. Pump it from the dephts. Break it to fractions in Oil Refineries and put it to good use in Chemical plants.
Belts are great for minerals. If the mineral fields are close. And not that big. Otherwise you better build good-old train tracks and scale your logistics to a new level.
- Logistic robots
The “third support” of the logistic system. You need advanced technology for this. But once you have it you have all these cool looking drones that move the stuff for you based on some general conditions you set up.
- Blueprints and building robots
Tired of manually building another mining site. Just use a blueprint. Define what should be built, provide the material and a bunch of building drones will build the whole thing for you.
You want to have exactly 1006 circuits in your buffers? No problem, just make a signal that switches off the production line once you have reached the limit. This is advanced but powerful concept where you can really “program” your factory. It will be expanded even more in the near future.
You are not welcome on this planet. With all your smokey machines that generate plenty of waste and destroy the environment. If you make too much pollution you better prepare for the enraged natives to come after you.
Those natives are really annoying, aren’t they? You need to build walls and turrets to protect from their rage attacks. But wait, there is a plenty of military options for you to “solve the situation”. The fight mechanics are at the moment weaker compared to the rest of the content (which is quite mature). We will work on this.
- Singleplayer freeplay.
The main singleplayer game requires a lot of work to finish. The task is simple, build the Rocket Defense (a very technologically advanced building – analogy of sending a Satelite to space in Civilization). You will need to do your best to achieve this goal. On top of that every game is a different challenge because of our procedural map generation.
- Scenario pack.
Scenario pack is for Furnace Attendant or higher tiers. This is a set of additional mini campaigns. At the moment there are three, but we plan to add more in the future.
- Modding support.
Factorio is designed from the beginning to be highly moddable. Most of the game data are stored in the Lua data files and can be changed by the mods. Mods can also change behavior of the running game via modding scripts, also written in Lua language.
- Map editor.
The game has a custom built in map editor. We used it to make all the campaing and scenario maps. It is there for you to make new content for the game. You can also attach a Lua script to the map and make a challenge scenario with specific set of rules.
