I put Satisfactory down for about a year and a half but they released a new experimental update recently and I took that as an excuse to start a new file, and it's been really nice. They've really rebalanced the early game a lot, and exploration is more fun. Also it's much more enjoyable when approached like a 3d first person board game than some kind of actual simulation.

I appreciate how this game makes me think more about when to build and dismantle temporary infrastructure in the early game. It's frustrating to approach it if you are trying to incrementally build the one perfect factory, but it's satisfying to play it as a process of maintaining and changing infrastructure as your needs change.

@scanlime I have this problem when I play Cities: Skylines. I feel bad about demolishing people's homes, so I try never to rezone anything, and then it sprawls and gets out of hand.

@darth_mall gosh that's relatable. I haven't played cities skylines yet, but my first couple saves in Satisfactory I was way too concerned with preserving the environment

@scanlime there's also this, which I haven't had a chance to check out, but looks related and cool

@scanlime I've been kind of itching to play Cities: Skylines, and now I'm wondering if it'll run ok on my laptop and I can play while we watch TV at night🤔
