A serious proposal on how to build the cores and the conveyor belts
There is a very popular mod for Satisfactory that completely rewrites the components in the game. Big job but lots of fun to play. In it is a modification to building conveyors that was fairly popular. I think you should go in the same direction. Here is the suggestion.
You have two unique items gained when the conveyor technology is gained and when core technology is gained. You get a Conveyor Belt Segment and a Core Implementor. These core units are used for making Type 1 and Type 2 units. As a result when you move to Type II components you do not use the Type I technology for building. Instead you use more core components. For example:
2 Conveyor Belt Segments + 2 mechanical components = 1 conveyor belt type I. Likewise, 8 conveyor belt segments + the other stuff = Type II. This way a player only needs a large supply of the core component and does not have to build component A to make component B. Thus for a simple Conveyor Belt Segment you use 1 mechanical component + 1 iron component to build the core component. And you can make those quickly.
Likewise, you make a Core Implementor which uses very little items to make a lot of these, Each core requires a Core Implementor which is the working guts of the core. So purple = 1 and blue = 3 and ? = 5.
