      Have fun, bro. It's a good one.

      DSP is solid too. Play both. You can safely skip Satisfactory. Coffee Stain doesn't really know how to do fun. DSP is just a better version with the obnoxious annoyances stripped out and they actually want you to build a large factory. Coffee Stain said they didn't want to make building easier because that'll speed up the growth of your factory and they can't be bothered optimizing for a large factory.

      Factorio is king, but DSP is solid too.

          It's way more put together than most EA games, but I kind of get the hesitation. Might be worth watching some gameplay. There's still plenty there to sink your teeth into. I got my 30 bucks out of it and then some. I don't have the playtime that I have with Factorio but DSP is still solid. If you're still on the fence then put it on the backburner for a while. Let a couple more updates come out and revisit it. Play Factorio in the meantime.

              There's a couple things that might be similar but if you want a factory then Factorio, DSP, and Satisfactory is what you get.

              If you kinda like resource management, Timberborn might be your thing. Autonauts has you doing some basic programming to get robots to do all the work for you. If you like a little programing and puzzles any of the Zachtronic games could keep you busy. I know Factory Town is a thing but I haven't played it so I don't know a whole lot about it. I'm sure there's a few others but nothing I know much about.

                Actually, are there any fun programming games you can think of? I imagine scratch-style programming gets really messy, really quickly.

                Personally I love ExaPunks if you want something a little more gritty. If you want a lighter experience than Opus Magnum is great and will still give ya some challenge but the freedom to get sloppy. If you just want to make something and see it work, Opus Magnum and Factorio is some satisfying stuff.

                Not him, but I started playing Autonauts recently, and it's made me realize how much I wanted a colony sim where you can just tell your people EXACTLY what to do, because otherwise they seem to go about their tasks in the least efficient manner possible.

                The cutesy graphics was initially turn off, and the programming is clumsy at times, but I'm surprised at how much I've been enjoying it.

                I never noticed needing more detailed orders except when telling them to take shit from trains and trains are useless anyway. You tell the robots where to go, what to do, how much and add a few conditions. There's a limit to how much each robot can be programmed to do but you can have infinite robots with no downsides so there's no reason to have any do more than "go here, pick these up until your hands are full, and dump them in here".

                How is Autonauts vs. Pirates?

                It's alright. Full of QoL upgrades and isn't much more stressful than the original although it is shorter.

                Haven't gotten too far in it, but it's a refreshing change of pace from the usual mechanics. All the new stuff thus far seems slower-paced as well, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. As an example, you might start off mining 5-8 beryllium (copper equivalent) per second, and the base turret (which is a 3x3) costs a few hundred, but it's much more powerful and the enemy waves are much smaller and longer between. The RTS bits are neat as well, and it feels much better than just ordering an assault command and watching as all your forces march straight to the enemy core, only incidentally killing priority targets like turrets as they pass by.

            Yeah I bought it after Update 5, played like 10 hours, realized I liked it and just stopped until the full release. I can't imagine playing it more than once, but having an actual landscape that you need to navigate, explore, and design around instead of just large swathes of procedurally generated gunk really makes it feel different.

        satisfactory is good for exactly one playthrough, the handcrafted map might be decent but once you've explored it and realized there's only one good spot to build a main base that isn't a series of floating platforms in the sky it loses a lot of playability.

          I found Factorio was equally only good for one playthrough. After I'd launched the rocket, it felt like there was nothing more to do than duplicate the same blueprints more to get the numbers up for the achievements. Infinite randomly generated worlds doesn't matter when the progression is also always the same, and it's still the same solutions to the same problems.

      The Factorio devs have literally said that key resellers hurt them more than piracy because people with stolen credit cards will buy keys illegally, the suckers who got their card stolen will chargeback the cards, and the devs will have to pay the victims out of pocket then make the key invalid, so everybody loses except for the scammer and reseller website. When G2A did a PR stunt where they would pay back 10x for any cash lost from chargebacks, the Factorio devs were the only people who took em up on the offer, and got $39,600 from them

    Factorio is well worth the money and time even if you're not going to build all the way up to megafactories that launch rockets every 3 seconds.

    Riftbreaker is also fun, the building systems are much simplified in favour of much greater focus on stomping around as a mech and playing tower defense. I pirated it at first and then gave them money in anticipation of multiplayer being implemented.

    Have also thrown like 200 hours into Avorion which is sort of a completely different game but has a cool economy system and giant networks of factories and supply chains that I think would tickle the balls of anyone who enjoys factorio. Though it's obviously a mechanic that is very much to the side and not as involved as in Factorio in which the autistic logistics are the entire game.

        I haven't played any coop, so I've got 200 hours in singleplayer.

        You basically get dumped at the edge of the galaxy and progression is generally about making your way closer to the center. You can get little quests from stations in each sector you land in(you're playing on a galaxy composed of a grid of 1000x1000 procedurally generated sectors, not all populated) which are mostly things like "delivery the this this factory makes" or "go murder a spaceman", there isn't enough variety in those sidequests but they're a good way to get kickedstarted.

        There is a main questline for you to do and you receive messages and meet up with characters as you make progress in it, the scale of things in the game is actually genuinely impressive since you can have tiny fighters that emerge out of a ship/station's hangars or you can have small ships or giant kilometre long monstrosities. In these blocky spaceman games I've been worried about how shit the endgame always is and to my very pleasant surprise there is some kind of big boss at the end of the game's main quest, and so far I've found some really fucking huge ships to fight and get murdered by.

        My main point of comparison content wise for avorion is Space Engineers and Empyrion, because SE has great building + physics stuff but nothing to do with the cool shit you build, and Empyrion has some decent PVE stuff to do but with a shit imitation of SE's building systems and a PVE formula that falls apart due to design and technical issues very quickly.

        Avorion has been a ton of fun because it actually runs well and actually has a universe to interact with, and it isn't bogged down by performance falling apart or horrible issues with the draw distance of objects meaning that you literally can't do long range battles.

        I've been cruising around with a ship covered in cannons that have an effective range of 15-20km and the game's systems for controlling turrets have actually been a fucking joy to use comparatively.

    We can argue about Factorio, DSP, Satisfactory, etc. but we all secretly love all of those games, and they love us too.

      zog zog double it

      That goes for anything, really. Speed mods in the pumpjacks you already have can help, just know that'll put some strain on your power generation.
