I use a spreadsheet for planning my production lines in Satisfactory. I do this so I don't spend time during my streams doing maths and running around checking what machines are making what, I personally don't think it makes great viewing. However due to multiple viewer requests I did an impromptu crash course on how I use the spreadsheet and how it helps make decisions.
If you use trains to transport resources then you are going to want to make sure the train can supply enough resources to last the round trip. This video explains how to calculate this along with a working example. This video also explains the theory behind using buffers for the freight platforms.
Fluid Overflow allows you to deal with excess fluid so it does not halt your production line when it backs up. This example demonstrates how you can overflow the Heavy Oil Residue, convert it to Petroleum Coke and then sink it.
The amount of Fuel created from Crude Oil and it's by-products can vary greatly depending on what recipe combinations you use. This video is about telling a story of how many machines need to be built and how much power will be created.
Train freight platforms will cease input/output operations when a load/unload operation occurs. This video shows how to use fluid buffers with train fluid platforms to ensure your production line will always receive fluid during load/unload operations.
If you use trains to transport fluid then you are going to want to make sure the train can supply enough fluid to last the round trip. This video explains how to calculate this along with a working example.
Do you have a train station with freight platforms that are designated for different purposes? I'll show you how to configure a train to target specific platforms and ignore others.
Overclocking power generators is a misunderstood concept, however if you're keen to go out and get slugs for the power shards then you can reduce the amount of generators required by 50% for the same amount of power output.
The ADA voice in-game is created using Google text to speech. The following instructions show you how to create your own ADA audio clips.
A build train is central storage on wheels. It really helps when building at a remote location, you have everything you need on hand.
