Fire Hose Games has released an update on Techtonica's next industrial builder and automation builder. The underground caves of Planet Calyx that you may dig to construct endless conveyor belt lines will include a logistics solution: monorails.
Monorails are versatile ways to quickly transport materials from far distances. Of course, building a long line of conveyor belts might produce the same results, but this should be more economical.
Monorails may be positioned directly from converyour belts by inserters.
The slight hint of "railrunning" should indicate that these monorails will be used by players in the future. Looks like a long zip line or inverted rollercoasters.
As part of the Steam Base Builder fest that began on January 23, a demo for Techtonica is currently available. The demo is quite extensive, as it includes not only a tutorial, but also a great place to build your factory.
Techtonica hasn't released a date yet, but you may learn more later this year.
