Request to get rid of Manufactory production limit

Hi guys,

Have you noticed that the Manufactory has production limit of 100? After which you have to click the building, and get those 100 units to load to the storage. If you don't do this then the production is completely stopped. Does this "feature" bug anyone else, and would you like to get rid of this also?

Let's say that you need 600 carbon, and you set your material production so that 2 lines are producing it during the night. You go to sleep for 8 hours and in the morning you check what you have. You have 100 carbons instead of 640, which would be the result, if there wasn't this stupid limitation!

For instance, for carbon, to maximize your production, you need to micromanage your production so that every 2,5 hours you need to go online and click manufactory to load 100 carbons to the storage.

When I noticed this, I started producing only materials that take more than an hour for nights. Meh! :rolleyes:

Indeed, it is completely unclear why such a restriction was introduced at all, what is the point of this?... even when it comes to programming, you can even store the number 255 in a one byte.

There are some other threads already mentioning this but yes, definitely need to increase the limit.
In Auto age some items have a 200 limit but why should there be a limit at all?
@Harlems369th - are there any plans to increase the limits or remove them?

This setting does affect real life. We need to work, sleep, and have more free time. We love this game but don’t want to be tied to it

ive made a post on manufactory qol to increase capacity by 100 per upgrade for 500 a slot when fully upgraded.

also another qol is if i want to upgrade the same munition to the same level id want to upgrade them all at once and not select each one repeatedly so if i want to upgrade 7 level6 reinforced plating i need 140 of each material and making munitions too.

They want you to be online in game more. So that's why is limit and I don't have and don't see any problem with that limit.

And limit is 100 per slot. If you put on 2 slot you have 200. 4 slot same material and limit is on 400.

Be clever, over night put platinum (4h) and in day time try to combine materials you need. Let's say like this maybe you will slowly progress but at the end is same.

There is an obvious contradiction here... If they wanted people to be online more often and longer, then there would not be such long waits for construction and research. In some ways they limit the limit so that people come in more often, but in others, on the contrary, they drag out the process - don’t come in for a week and you won’t really lose anything, you won’t miss anything. :ROFLMAO:

Personally they have given enough freebie to drone age and below. You want more slots like Automation age then earn we did and we did not get new wonder.

If anything they should remove manufactory till drone age. Then you start at 2 slots and get 4 slots at Auto age.

If they increase drone age down then whatever they increase Auto age should get. They up drone down to 4 slots auto gets 8 slots cause they double yours they can double ours fair is fair
