Basically, maintaining a list of machines and handling one of them each tick. Idea is to scale recipes up as much as needed so that the game never processes more than one machine each tick, and when it does process a machine, it processes the recipe * multiplier and then lets the machine sleep some amount of time so that the overall production is the same.
Main goal is to save processing power in large bases so it can be used elsewhere.
