Description:

Introduction:

Krastorio aims to facilitate megabases with huge energy systems. It includes new buildings, ores, technologies, turrets, coverings, fuel, ways of producing science and a major re-balancing of many vanilla things, but this mod will seem more like an “augmented vanilla” experience rather than a total overhaul. We wanted to keep the vanilla gameplay with minor complications. You can look at some buildings in this video and on this page. When developing the mod, the priority was optimization. There are no complex scripts and super-heavy sprites with ton of frames, so Krastorio is well-optimized for multiplayer games, and will not adversely affect UPS.

I've added the ability to convert ores into matter. However, this is not as overpowered as in other mods and requires an insane amount of energy, time, and new production chains. You can also turn on "quality of life" tweaks like long hands, an increased inventory, or bonus items when you start a new game.

Tips:

STARTING A NEW GAME is not necessary, but is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED because Krastorio changes almost all recipes, technologies and the parameters of many buildings.

Recruiting (artist)

Krastor did a great job with this mod, but nothing is forever, now he had to take a slow down and Krastorio have some update that will probably never done. If you are able to draw sprites for mods, and you are interested to do something for Krastorio, see on Trello the "to be approved" things, or propose something that you can draw and you want add.

Recruiting (programmers)

We have repeatedly received offers to make a light version of the mod. But now we have absolutely no free time for this. If you want to make a light version, then you can use any of our resources for this.
