Phase 4 goes much faster when you’re placing 4 constructors at a time. Here’s 180 iron ingots to rods, but you can stack as high as you want. This setup works for any constructor step with <780 per min input/output items. Super useful for simple, low-footprint factories.

Yeah that’s definitely the plan. Ngl I just never bothered with the blueprint maker but it easily could have saved me 1h of building on just my HMF factory alone.

I can’t even fathom how much time save a few general blueprints would have given me *shudders*

Edit: lmao I’m on mobile and meant to reply to your comment.

That’s actually a really good idea. I was annoyed with satisfactory + buildings which have really weird outputs sometimes, and I wasn’t seeing how I could manage them efficiently in an horizontal plane. Doing them like that is probably the solution.

I’ve been using blueprints in a similar way, but always as a vertical pair with the through wall cable connections already wired and vertical conveyors already connected in the blueprints. I stack them as high as I need, then connect the bottom cable a a cable between pairs, vertical conveyors between pairs and I’m done.

I also change the color in the blueprint designer and save it as a different name so I have different colored mini skyscrapers.

Building high also helps finding my remote factories after I’ve been away a while, I can see them in the distance.

I tried stacking pairs awhile ago, but the input flow got really unbalanced the higher i went. How did you solve that? I noticed you are using mk5 conveyors, but I only had mk3 at the time, recently updated to mk4

This is my favorite thing to do once I have blueprints unlocked. I’ll build them for general manufacturing (putting out all the basic components) and then build specialized ones like this where a whole node is used for one component, really makes new late game factories easier.
