Factory Planner is a mod that allows you to plan out your production in advance. You can select the products you want to produce and specifiy the recipes, machines and modules to accomplish that task. You can choose which timescale to use, incorporate mining productivity, and optionally have a matrix solver work out more complex scenarios. To be able to better structure your plans on large projects, you can create infinitely nesting subfloors that further lay out a specific recipe.
My focus when creating the interface for this mod was on making it as clear and intuitive as possible while offering all the features that power-users need. To that end, you should be able to get started on your first plans relatively easily, after which you can gradually explore all the functionality that is offered. The interface was created with all the modern design standards and interaction paradigms in mind, which will make you feel right at home when using it.
The big advantage of using a mod to run these calculations is that it can adapt to the exact set of mods that you are using. The various online calculators either don't work with mods at all or require you to tediously export your mod data, which then becomes out of date as soon as anything changes. With Factory Planner, you can be sure that it's always up to date with the exact setup you are running.
If you have any suggestions or encounter any bugs, I would love to hear about them, either here on the mod portal (under Discussion), or on my Discord if you prefer. There's an in-game written tutorial that you can take a look at, but most of the interface can be figured out intuitively.
Factory Planner works with any content mods, is fully multiplayer compatible, and can be added to a save at any time. Thanks to anyone that contributed suggestions, bug reports and advice, I really appreciate it. If you want to support my work financially, use the ko-fi button below. Thanks!
