The Factory building converts specific resources to Goods and Diesel Tokens or Timber Tokens . The base Factory always consumes a fixed number of resources per Game tick: 3 Diesel , or 2 Timber and 1 Iron . Each conversion is a separate process, therefore it can produce a single type of Token or both types simultaneously. The Factory is an Era III building, therefore when transitioning from the Steam Era to the Early Diesel Era several Factories will appear in random locations across the map.
The base unit of the Factory has three processes:
The first process consumes 3 Diesel and produces 1 Goods and 2 Diesel Tokens every Game tick.
The second process consumes 3 Timber and produces 1 Goods every Game tick.
The third process consumes 3 Steel and produces 1 Goods and 2 Steel Tokens every Game tick.
The base production process for the Factory is shown below:
|Image||Extension||Consumes||Produces||No. of Ticks to Complete||Building Tile Size|
|5 Diesel||2 Goods + 2 Diesel Tokens||2 Ticks||2x2|
|2 Diesel||1 Goods + 1 Diesel Token||1 Ticks||2x1|
|2 Steel||1 Goods + 1 Steel Token||1 Ticks||TBA|
