Short description of this mod(pack):

Adds 4 brand new tiers of electric mining drills with their relative techs, to speed up your production with some useful base-production buffs.
The tiers are based on your progression in the game, and each of them has a base buff that can be stacked with the mining-productivity research:

Base Buffs for each tier:

  • Mk2: 12,5%
  • Mk3: 25,0%
  • Mk4: 35,0%

With Mining-Productivity 4:

  • Mk2: 52,5%
  • Mk3: 65,0%
  • Mk4: 75,0%
    You can add productivity updates too and the total number of upgrades that can be simultaneously installed grows for each tier.

Their speed:

  • Mk2: 0.75/s
  • Mk3: 1.00/s
  • Mk4: 1.25/s
    By the end of the month I'll implement the Electric Mining Drill Mk5 as well.
    I'm thinking of implementing quarries too, so tell me what do you think.

Balancing these drills is not as easy as I thought, so I'd be thankful to see what you think about them on both discord and the comment section.

Since this mod(pack) has not a forum page, you can follow me on my discord server where you can tell me your idea and/or any suggestion on my mods.
On that forum you can find a dedicated section on all the mods/modpacks on which i'm currently working too.


The Extended Vanilla Modpack:

These mods are meant to be no-game-changing / helper mods, however:

With the release of the "Intermediates" mods I'm going to change:

  • The ores' and metals' number, production and processing;
    (more intermediate products and passages for obtaining ores and plates)
  • The electronics itself;
    (more tiers of circuits and some other electric stuff)
  • The vanilla tech three.

What I'm planning to do:

  • The single mods will still be playable in the normal vanilla as NO-game-changing;
  • The new mods will be added as optional dependencies and will OVERHAUL them.
    (Similar to how the old FactorioPlus modpack was in the past 0.15)

The new mods will be first launched as alphas, with a content that will be subsequently expanded.

FactorioPlus 2 Modpack:

Do you remember the old modpack for 0.15, that consisted on plates and alloys, refinering and multiple ores?
Well, by the end of the next month (September 2020) I'll rework it for the newest version of the game, so If you want to tell me something (Ideas and suggestions, for example or what you liked/disliked of the old modpack - if you where there and remember it xD), you're welcome to enter in my discord server; see you and stay tuned!
