Factorio is about working within logistical and spatial constraints to effect large scale designs. It is about the power of scaling horizontally, increasing production by reusing designs. It is about a enormous, unfathomable factory of interlinking production and transportation, made intelligible by abstracting the simple behaviours of each component.

When we play Factorio, we keep in mind that everyone has something to contribute, and that by teaching each other high level design concepts has a large return on investment.

Our next Factorio playthrough will be of the upcoming Space Age expansion, and will be organised in the Factorio Channel.
