A new early access factory/logistics game along the lines of Factorio/Satisfactory with a little bit of No Man's Sky thrown in....



I've been giving this one a go, i hadn't played any of the other factory/logistics game before, this one is pretty neat

It's addicting once you get into it

Its weird that the first screen shot has another star (suggesting a binary system?), and the second one has a planet right next to it that looks lit up, which means there is another star near by?

The reviews make it look fun, I just questions the dyson sphere bit. Since a Dyson sphere kills off everything else in the system that relies on its light and warmth.

There's usually 1-2 other planets in your starting system plus a gas giant, after you tech up enough you can warp and you start up inter system logistics, right now the seeds are limited to 64 systems

My Starting planet is Rescha III , i've just had to leave the planet to start up mining some other elements i cannot get on that planet, it's only a short 5 min flight

I saw this in EA too and it looked cool, but it’s the same for me I’ve never played one of these ‘factory’ type of games.

Is it just about mass producing things and then moving on to something else or is there a bit of science and engineering with figuring things out?

It's mostly about setting up supply chains to build x component, then you turn that component into another to produce science cubes. Certain bottle necks do happen and you need to figure out how to get rid of certain unwanted resources. Each level of science (there are 6 i believe) presents a issue, i've just barely reached interplanetary logistics

I have been playing this as well, it is VERY well done considering the 5 person dev team. It has hooked me more than Factorio or Satisfactory. Even now in early access it is highly recommended for anyone that likes logistics type games.

That is not a Dyson Sphere.... A Dyson sphere contains the SUN inside the sphere.
That is more like trying to utilize a Kardashev scale Type I, where a Dyson Sphere would be a Type II.
