So here’s a look at a generated scenario with an absurd amount of cash. The only point here was to try to build a factory that supported five lines of fully researched technology at once (at full capacity, that’s ~148 cars/hour).
Unfortunately, this doesn’t. It hardly even supports two lines. The biggest hangup is in the time it takes for resources to reach production facilities from the edge conveyors. Also I learned a bit late that the resource conveyors can’t go over/through office areas. So my next steps are going to be adding pockets of wall in the middle of the factory to get more just-in-time importers, and also cutting holes through the office areas every 6-8 tiles to permit conveyors to go through them.
(yes I’m playing on three monitors that are a total of ~6,000px wide)
