The Space Lift looks like an integral part of the game, allowing you to access the next tiers, but for something that large and glorious, I think it should be able to do more. There are 6 input ports on the Space Lift, but I feel that 3 of those could be used as output ports, allowing the player to send up goods, possibly gain money and request goods to be send down that might be a bit hard to transport. These goods leave through the outputs and conveyors can be used to transport them to where they need to go.

Sweet idea! On point, it is indeed a connection with something bigger.

the idea of a factory is for you to make the stuff, not buy it from someone / somewhere else

you'll see the need for the 6 input as you progress to the higher tiers i'm sure.

From what I can see the nature of your mission is to suck the planet / area dry of resources and send it home........

Seeing as you can only build one Space Lift and there is plenty of space to add extra input ports I'm sure having extra income of a few goods for only one base will not hurt this idea. There could even be a system where Ficsit requests goods from the planet surface, and in turn will send down goods you cannot obtain on the planet.
