Analysis Mode For Factories

The Analysis Mode serves as an alternative to the standard 3×3 layout mode for factories. It allows you to manage your factories in a much more streamlined way, spending less time on micromanagement and yielding better results.

You could easily switch between the two modes by clicking on the button as shown in the following screenshot. You may switch back to the standard 3×3 layout mode anytime you wish, so you could have the best of both worlds.

When you have switched to the Analysis Mode, you could use the new interface for viewing the details of the finished products and the input items with all the important information consolidated on the same screen.

Select a finished product at the upper area of the screen and you will see a clear picture of the key factors that contribute to the final quality of the product (the aggregated input item quality rating and your tech level), without having to click on individual units from the 3×3 layout.

Select a group of input items at the upper area of the screen to see a summary of the input items, including their costs and freight charges, quality ratings, stock levels and supply and demand situations. Again, the information presented here is much more streamlined than the traditional 3×3 layout.

Here you could change the supplier of an input item effortlessly. Simply click the [Link] button, the game will show only those suppliers that currently offer that specific input item. It is a much more user friendly way for selecting suppliers than using the 3×3 UI.
