Factory Planner (BETA)

This mod allows you to plan your production in advance, specifying recipes and machines that make up each assembly line. It does the hard work of calculating ratios so you can focus on the factory itself. It's intuitive to use and easily adapted, should your needs change.

! THIS IS A BETA VERSION ! It will lead to crashes and not work correctly. Please do not use unless you're sure you want to.

This mod is in a more or less public beta. Feel free to use it, at your own risk. I suggest setting your autosave interval to a small amount of minutes so that you don't lose too much progress in case of a crash.

If you encounter any bugs, I would love it if you told me about them here on the mod portal (under 'Discussion'). To fix them, I need to be able to reproduce them in my own game. To that end, I'd appreciate the error message, a short description of what you did to make the bug happen, and, if you use any other mods, a list of those, as they can also cause problems with my mod. But please don't feel obligated to report anything. If you just want to stealthily try my mod out, do so. I won't be mad.

You can use it in an existing save, or start a new one. Multiplayer will work too, although your plans are not shared with others (yet). I won't give any advice on how to use the mod here, try and figure it out yourselves (there is a text-tutorial in the mod). If you find something confusing, that is valuable feedback to me, giving me a chance to try and clarify it in the future. So feel free to contact me with any question you have, I'm happy to hear the ways in which my mod has problems.

There are some major features that this mod does not have yet, like modules/beacons, a proper way to deal with byproducts, or import/export of your subfactories. I realize that these are important features, but I had to release this at some point. They will follow in future updates, when what I have now is out there and stable. Do tell me about things you'd like to see, though!

Finally, thanks for wanting to take an early look at my mod. Your interest means a lot, and I hope you will find the mod an asset to your ever expanding factory.
