The fact that this has so many negative votes is really saddening. This is ****exactly**** how I feel. Hell, did I write this post? Because that's also exactly the example I was going to give. I overclocked the shit out of all the subcomponent constructors of the molecular frame assembler and STILL didn't meet the requirements to have it run nonstop. Seriously game? If it was producing 10 frames a minute, maybe that'd be alright, but 4 frames? Are you kidding me? I'm a huge factorio fan, tedium and me are good friends. But Factorio makes it *fun*. Building a factory in this game is not fun in its current state, it's frustrating.
Btw, I was serious, I had to check that I didn't write this post. IMO building a factory is the least fun part of this game by a long shot, and that's extremely disappointing. I got to the 500 molecular frames thing, thought to myself (well shit, time to build a dedicated factory for this). So I did. Spent about 3/4 hours setting up the new building, the production lines, the miners, the long ass belts dragging the iron to those production lines, grabbing all the slugs I could manage, upgrading to the best belts I could afford-- and when I finish it and start it all up, what is my golden factory producing? Less than 4 molecular frames a minute. And I need 500 of them? Wut. I can produce significantly more than 4 molecular frames a minute by hand, that factory was a huge draw on my power supply, and I spent 3/4 hours on it. So I let it run while I watched Youtube and made dinner and stuff. I came back, it had hardly produced anything, so I let it run a few more hours, then came back and finished it off by hand. In the time it took to produce about 20, I produced 150. That's a problem. /rant
