This is a Factorio Mod based around the need of many players to have a way to wage glorious automated war on the biters - or other players if playing a PvP mod/scenario.

The concept is simple - manufacture droid soldiers, and insert them into a Droid Assembler where they are produced (spawned nearby). The newly created soldier will join a nearby squad if one exists, or it will start its own squad and wait until more robots join.

Command your squads (even remotely from the map view when zoomed in!) with a simple selection tool item! Configure their behaviours with a special combinator!

When the squad is large enough (currently 10 by default, change it in config.lua or in-game using the droid settings combinator) the squad will begin moving to attack the nearest biter nest (within 5k tiles, adjustable same way as above) or other enemy force's units/buildings.

Guard stations can be set up to have a short range defence group/reaction force in addition to the usual turret walls to spice up your defences. The robots have unlimited ammo, and as long as you keep the guard stations stocked with robots it will deploy new droids to keep up the defenders numbers.
