Construct: Basic screw drill (for the silver ore) Construct: Basic Steam Engine Research: Logging mill Action: Make the drone keep lookin for different ores (specially coal)
"Internal logistic centers seem to work at peak performance, the water extractor is sub optimal and must be improved, however, priority is given to making a device which can use the wood natural structures, The Orochi will prevail".
Research(You would complete it regardless of what I roll so...): The research is complete. You now have access to the standard upgrade, allowing you to upgrade a previously constructed building. It increases its resource consumption, but increases its output rate and efficiency.
Look for iron deposits(2): No more accessible iron deposits are found nearby. the only other iron is in the form of sand on the sea floor. (As a heads up, the quality of ore does not affect how much it produces, only how long it lasts.)
Event: A storm rolls over your factory. You don't take the full force of the storm, but it is still a loss. Your factory is weathered 6% damage.
Construct drill on a iron deposit(1). As the drill is built over water, it goes well at first. Soon some storms roll in, washing the drill straight back onto shore. luckily no materials where lost and the storms didn't affect the factory, but some time has been lost.
Send drone to find iron(4) The drone is deployed to find iron. It is found, on the sea floor, in the form of sand. Though it is huge in number, only the stuff in the shallows is accessible. It was unable to scan more due to bad weather.
Research standard upgrade(3). The upgrade is mostly done. The upgrade is going well, but research had to be halted prematurely due to the stormy weather.
Refine the sand: The sand is more iron rich than it seems. it produces a large amount of metal per unit.
Scan the area better, avoiding the tower(4): Seeing as the tower is to the southwest, you head northeast. as you head this way there are glimpses of a massive storm. Along with this, you detect what looks like a drone, although you are skeptical of this. Everywhere else checked is boring and uninteresting.
Research Standard Upgrade(1): Little progress is made. But every bit does count. And it is almost half-way done.
Construct drill(4): The drill is build up on the ledge with out issue. It starts producing a good amount of silver. A path to it is even made.
Research Circuit Press(3). Some good work gets done making the press, it now works properly with silver instead of copper. It still needs refinement, but it is more than halfway done.
Scan for silicate or biofuel(1): As your drone scans around, the trees interfere the signal. The only area that scan works on is your own crater, which you already know all the resources of. You don't know if it's the pine needles of what, but it is certainly inconvenient.
Event: A massive storm has rolled over your factory. Flooding the factory grounds. Your factory has weathered by 14% damage.
Construct Screw Drill(2): As you start building the drill, some storms roll in from the far east. The drill is quickly built before the mass of storms hits. This hasty construction gives the drill a low quality
Scout for iron(3): The drone has to scout quickly for iron, before it gets lost in a storm. It finds signs of a desert, made of iron-rich sand to the southwest. Something resembling a drone is also briefly spotted, although you are skeptical of this.
Research Quarry(1): Research had to be halted do to terrible weather. Research begins again when the storm is over, but no without a time loss.
Core Damage: 14%(If this reaches 100% you are destroyed)
Construct Basic Screw Drill(4): A drill is build over the silver, although relatively far from the factory it still produces plenty of material, and transportation isn't too much of a hassle. Now silver is being produced in decent quantity.
Research Logging Mill(1): As it turn out, Figuring out how to efficiently and automatically cut wild trees is hard. Little progress is made.
Scout for ore, especially coal(3). As your drone goes above the forest, it can not find anything through all the trees. You don't whether it's the pine needles or there's just no ore. Your drone also checks over the ocean, and detect an extremely large wealth of distant coal to the the southeast. but can't keep going do to range limits and the weather as it gets closer.
A new steam engine is constructed do to some kind of AI rage.
The reason is not clear, but it is constructed quickly, leaving time for another construction.
Despite having the time, you don't have the resources to make a refinery.
As such the refinery is cancelled and then you turn around and get back to work on the steam engine.
Within the 'rage' you can not stop think of the AI that launched right after you. You have no idea where he went or what he calls himself, but you start calling him 'LORDCLASSYUS'. You deploy a drone to look for him,
and you find signs of a factory to the north, just out of range.
Research Standard Upgrade(2):
The research is just barely completed, finish before the rage actually started. You now have access to the standard upgrade.
(As a side note, CHOOSE YOUR RESEARCH! It is always free, please just select your research)
The drone is deployed to watch the factory from above, occasionally coming down to recharge. To the northeast the storm has gone, but the drone that was seen has not returned. But in that direction traces of coal have been detected. To the southwest, a seemingly alien drone has come from the tower. It made of the same black metal of tower and it has one glowing blue eye. It does nothing but patrol the tower, and watch the factory.
Research Standard Upgrade(5):
A large break through is made in the research. You can now use the standard upgrade on machines.
While attempting to construct a refinery, the parts that needs to be produced stop being produced due to several pieces getting jammed.
Scan for coal(3):
The drone goes quite a ways north, it finds an area that is less dense in trees than most places. It has thin layers of coal just beneath the surface. getting resources from here to the factory will require a method of mass transportation.
Research Circuit Press(6):
A new design has surfaced, completely devalueing your previous research. It works with both silver and copper, it works efficiently, and it does not break easily.
The construction goes badly, the steam pressure seams to get to high with the engine. eventaully breaking it and it ends up being scrapped.
Scout for minerals(5):
While scouting for minerals, there are clearings a short ways to the northwest, with thin layers of coal. While scanning this you briefly see another drone, looking for this same resource, it does not notice you. Scanning the south of the factory, you find small deposits of copper along the beach.
Research logging mill(3):
Research is going slowly, but a way of producing saw blades has been made, allowing trees to be cut easily. But cutting the trees is not automated, that part still needs work.
