Big Factory = Game Frozen


I started to build a factory with all the machines available, the game was fine until I start put the Wheel machine and the game start to slow down until it’s unplayable :frowning:
I have one i7 with 32Gb Ram and the game uses less than 400Mb (task manager).
It is possible to enhance even more the game?

Resource Conveyors:
Second suggestion: make it easier to delete the resource conveyors, now it’s impossible without deleting the machine under it.
Third suggestion: well I place the “Make …” machines with the objective of don’t buying any pieces so I make a resource conveyor path to the “Make …” machines and another, separately, for the resources made by them but that it’s sometimes difficult, it’s really a puzzle, please make a way for the Resource Conveyors can be closer to each other but not connected, can be a option!

“Path” Conveyors:
Fourth suggestion: joining the conveyors it’s difficult, sometimes it’s needed delete and make the path again, maybe make a sub-menu with crossings.

It’s all for now …

Best regards,


there were several performance enhancements the last two patches.
Do you use the latest game version (alpha 1.09)?
Would you please attach a savegame so other may take a look into your savegame?
If it is a custom map this needs to be attached as well.

Kind regards

No, I only have acess to the 1.08a version.

My factory in the attachment. (I don’t know if the image it’s needed).

As soon as all the slot at the top/left side of your factory get connected to resource importers everything is fine.

Cliff has mentioned a problem with such a situation (mega facility + unconnected slots) earlier. I’m not sure if he has fixed this or is still working on. I’m either searching with the wrong words or … but can’t find his posting atm.

So maybe you will have more luck hunting his post and give him a reply …

Kind regards

I think Cliff fixed it for the upcoming 1.10… so a little patience.

The pathfinder for the resource conveyors where not well optimized so it caused huge slowdowns in bigger factories.

Thanks for the answer! I don’t connect the factory because of the little money I have xD
I hope this can be fix soon!
