Intended to create an minorly alternate playstyle on kaepaer's Islands World mod: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/islands_world.
The 'many islands' map-gen preset needs to be used to utilize that mod's map generation.
Two main changes that this mod attempts to perform:
1) Disables landfill.
2) Can use Dark Matter Replicators to generate ore. You are still limited by land and power.
This means that the main challenge of the mod is building on the various islands generated by the map, as without landfill one can't just make a giant square island based on their stone supply.
Since landfill is removed, https://mods.factorio.com/mod/beautiful_bridge_railway is made into a mandatory mod for transport between various islands.
Bob's library is used for management of technology dependencies with the Dark Matter Replicator changes.
Recommended optional mods that can make getting around from island to island easier:
Other optional mods are only listed to either (a) remove landfill or (b) add basic ore replications to Dark Matter Replicators (when those mods are enabled). Those mods should otherwise be unchanged. Feel free to use or exclude them at your convenience.
