The campaign gamemode is Factorio's equivalent of a story mode. Campaigns are pre-generated levels where the 玩家 must accomplish some preset task, such as scanning the surroundings, 研究ing a certain technology, or providing a certain amount of resources into a chest. Upon completion, a game finish report is given, similar to freeplay, where kills and completion time are tallied. Completing the campaigns is not necessary to play freeplay.
Playing the campaign
To play a campaign, select Play from the title screen, then Start campaign. Select a campaign, and level, if applicable.
The campaign will load, and instructions will be displayed to the player. Then, the player may complete the task. For an added challenge, attempt to complete the campaign as fast as possible.
Types of campaigns
There are a few different types of campaigns in Factorio. These types include:
- After crash landing on this alien world you will need to explore the area, harvest local resources and automate producing the items you need to survive.
This campaign has only 1 level, called "Arrival". The Introduction is included with the demo.
The Introduction explains basic concepts like mining, crafting automation, research and enemies. The player has to automate automation science packs, build a radar and is then attacked by biters. To escape the biters, the player moves to a new base location where they have to set up power production, automate more products and fight off an increasing amount of enemies while researching some technologies. During this journey, the player is accompanied by a robot companion called "Compilatron" which gives some goals to the player and offers assistance in the from of placing some buildings to improve mining automation.
Transport belt madness
So many chests and such a small island. Can you connect the chests without your head spinning?
Little space, limited resources and a fixed amount of time. Buy land and machines and sell your final product.
