Why factory building in Satisfactory is so much easier than here
I have been struggling with the question : Why is Satisfactory so much easier to make factories?
Hell I have one factory that uses something like 40 refiners and 60 processors and it required some thought in feeds but other than that it was a snap to build. And left me with plenty of time to make it beautiful. But to think about making a factory for one item complex item in Techtonica takes a lot more work and thought.
Today I realized the answer. Satisfactory as explicit input and output ports. Building something with two inputs? That is what you connect to. Need something with 3 inputs, you stick in 3 materials. The other thing that simplifies is the ability to use lifts, lift holes through floors and walls, and other items like that. So I can predefine where the inputs go and where the output(s) go.
But here not everything is clean. The thresher has two ports on one end but nothing on the other. So I cannot do an inline build unless I turn it sideways. And then it is much larger sticking out the ends. Also the ports are anything goes. It would be much cleaner with input/output ports.
