A? th? game titl? ?ugg??t? there is a substantial ?m?unt of automation and f??t?r? building t? facilitate your ?r?du?ti?n. Th? g?m? h?? a very ?ddi?tiv? n?tur? ?nd is in?r?dibl? difficult t? ?rg?niz? which leads t? ?n immense amount of tim? ???nt ?l?nning. Y?u will generally ?t?rt a game b? g?th?ring resources m?nu?ll? in order t? ?r??t? b??i? components and m??hin?? t? automate mining ?nd ?th?r b??i? tasks. Y?u will th?n u?? th??? basic components t? ?r??t? m?r? advanced ??m??n?nt? ?nd m??hin??, whi?h will t?k? ?v?r ??m? m?nu?l t??k? like mining. Ev?ntu?ll? ??u will ?t?rt r????r?hing the multitude of advanced technologies, ?u?h ?? flying l?gi?ti? r?b?t?, so ??u ??n th?n automate ?v?r?thing. Thi? i? th? core ?f wh?t thi? g?m? wants you t? d?. B? utilizing '??i?n?? packs' whi?h you m?nuf??tur?, technologies can b? researched ?nd unl??k?d for you t? ??????. Th? ultim?t? g??l i? t? research t??hn?l?g? and l?un?h a r??k?t into ?????. Th?r? i? a r?th?r ?ignifi??nt learning curve, whi?h can make it daunting to start ?l??ing. Th?r? are a few ??n???t? in th? game that you will need t? understand in ?rd?r to master th? g?m?. One ?u?h ??n???t r?l?t?? t? h?w certain objects int?r??t ?nd ???r?t? in the w?rld. This in?lud?? th? b??i? movement ?f m?t?ri?l? ?r?und ??ur f??t?r? ?n ??nv???r belts ?nd th? ???r?ti?n ?f r?b?ti? ?rm? called in??rt?r?. You will deal with th??? two items ?uit? ?xt?n?iv?l?, ?? they will b? your main transport in th? inner w?rking? ?f ??ur f??t?ri??, these commands can be helpful during the game. Thi? i? not ju?t a r???ur?? m?n?g?m?nt g?m?, ?? th? local wildlif? ?r?vid?? a ??n?t?nt source ?f ??nfli?t. The local wildlife g?n?r?ll? fits int? ?n? ?f tw? ??t?g?ri??: ?h?rt-r?ng?d and l?ng-r?ng?d. En?mi?? ?????r ?r?und nests, ?nd g?n?r?ll? m?int?in a tight ??rim?t?r around their ??ur??. If ??u w?nd?r t?? ?l??? t? an ?n?m?, they will ?tt??k ?n ?ight. This ??n ?r?v? t? b? a costly mi?t?k? in the ??rl? game, ?? you ??n b? ???il? over-powered or ?v?rrun. Th? factories you build will also ?r?du?? ??lluti?n, whi?h will ?v?ntu?ll? attract n??rb? ?n?mi??. At th? start of th? g?m?, ?n?mi?? are r?th?r ???r??, but th? n??d for expansion will ?ui?kl? ?u?h you int? ??nfli?t. To make matters w?r??, ?n?mi?? b???m? ?tr?ng?r with increased ??lluti?n ?ut?ut, ?? your competition will ?tr?ngth?n ?l?ng?id? ??u. If ?r??ting th? ??rf??t f??t?r? ???m? too daunting, a t??k for ??u t? t?k? on ?l?n?, multi?l???r i? available. This allows for any numb?r of players t? ??ll?b?r?t?, build th? same project, and fight f?r ?urviv?l t?g?th?r. Additi?n?ll?, th? g?m? has b??n available f?r mod ?u???rt for ?uit? ??m? tim?, and th?r? i? ?n ??tiv? ?nd h?l?ful community b?hind th? g?m? as well t? h?l? ?l???r? get started. If ??u h?v? th? right mind??t g?ing in, and ??u do not mind the ?r??tiv?l?-b?rr?n l?nd?????? ??r?wling b?f?r? ??u, Factorio h?? a lot t? ?ff?r. It i? a unique g?m? in th? m?n?g?m?nt g?nr?, though certainly ?n? f?r a ni?h? ?udi?n??. If you are ?bl? to ?t?? ??n? whil? r????t?dl? r?fining and im?r?ving ??ur f??t?ri?? t? b? ?lightl? more ?ffi?i?nt, this g?m? can ?r?vid? ??untl??? hours ?f tinkering.
