This is an updated version of Emmote's 0.17 mod Fast Robot Start for Factorio 0.18.

This mod simply unlocks multiple tiers of the 'Worker Robots Speed' research. It's meant to be used in conjunction with one of the many Fast Start or Quick Start mods that provide you with a Personal Roboport so that you can actually use your bots instead of waiting around for them to cut a few trees and return to you in the same amount of time it takes to design an original nuclear setup.

A setting has been added under 'Map' that will allow the user to select the number of speed tiers that unlocks upon map creation. The default value is set to 4, but it can go all the way up to 255. I highly discourage anything above 20, however, as the bots practically teleport by that point anyways and all their time will be spent draining your power like a super high-end PC with LED everythings.
NOTE: Changing this value during runtime has no effect.
