    Angular-based calculator for factory games like Factorio and Dyson Sphere Program

    I mostly make extensive use of factoriolab online calculator. How much planning I'm doing also changes throughout the game:

  • FactoryPlanner

    A mod for Factorio. It allows you to plan out your production in detail.

    But I do a bit of planning for individual outposts/subfactories just to get a sense of what the ratios are, and I use the Factorio Planner mod (or Helmod) for that. And I use Rate Calculator (or Max Rate Calculator) nice for measuring stuff. And I'll admit to having a spreadsheet for calculating reactor ratios.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
