Planetary industry has always required an extremely high number of clicks. Even after the somewhat recent changes, the number of clicks is still extreme.
I’d like to suggest more automation.
- For example, basic industry always makes only 1 product from 1 input. I suggest just routing an input to the basic industry, and have the basic industry automatically configure itself to output the proper product.
- Also, whenever an extractor changes what it is extracting, it cuts all the routes. I suggest keeping the routes, and just changing the product that is travelling along the route. IE: The route is for whatever the extractor is extracting rather than choosing the product and then where it goes each time.
- It would be really nice to be able to create a template we can apply, or some way to configure multiple factories to do the same thing. Basically, choosing the input and output routes for a factory, and then applying those same routes to other factories easily.
