Overview - Lotsa Pipes

This is my first working – but not pretty – solution. It’s here for archive purposes.


Yes, yes… I know…. it’s not pretty, and even with a good attempt at waste management, I still had to have a great lot of buffer.
And without storage tanks, there’s only so many options….

I tried a few approaches;

First I split the entire thing into separate Si-atoms and build from the ground up, but I realised I would need an extra reactor which there is no room for.
Second attempt I went with L-shaped output in the first reactor, but I found the third one better; create squares.

Problem is; there’s loads of SiO4…. too much to handle as it turned out.

This one is not pretty, not at all.
Cycles waaaaaaay too high

I will attempt a better one when I finish the game :)
