Hello all,

Quick question regarding required factory production. I searched multiple times for "factory required production" etc and the only things that come up are bugs and mods.

I made my first factory (Processor) and I don't know how to determine how much production capacity is needed without overkill. I can't find a guide, nothing states it on wiki though  it states it for mines. I currently have 4371.3/s production capacity with 2 productions for  my Processor Factory S. Is there a way to see how long each cycle is? This would help me determine how much I need once I hit the supposed 15/sec cap. But I cannot figure out how to check that either.

Thanks,
A noob

There is an ongoing effort to add this info to wiki. You can calculate it. Find good "level " and price  in file scripts/lib/goodsindex.lua
For processors, level is 6, price is 7858. Processor factory produces 3 processors per cycle (info from wiki).
Production effort = level*price*amount produced per cycle.
So for processor factory, production effort is  141444.

Minimum cycle duration is 15 seconds, so you need 141444/15=9429 production capacity. I hope this is correct, please try it.

Thanks for your reply. Yes that calculation seems correct. Where can I find the file "scripts/lib/goodsindex.lua" ? I've searched the Avorion folder as well as my entire PC and its not there.

The file is in program files/steam/steamapps/common/Avorion/scripts/lib

Below is the data, I put it into a spreadsheet and used it to calculate how much for a single production line.

For processors, level is 6, price is 7858. Processor factory produces 3 processors per cycle (info from wiki).
Production effort = level*price*amount produced per cycle.
So for processor factory, production effort is  141444.

Minimum cycle duration is 15 seconds, so you need 141444/15=9429 production capacity. I hope this is correct, please try it.

Before I found this post, the other day I manually tested (in creative mode with a stopwatch, LOL) how much production it takes to make antigrav generators and antigrav units in 15 seconds. Both of them (which are two production lines when you build them) matched the numbers given here (~38k and ~11k)
As far as I can tell, you do not need to multiply by the number of production lines. So for example processors should only need 3143, instead of 9429. :)
