About to dive into this...anyone played yet?

http://store.steampowered.com/app/427520/

It's getting ridiculous ratings (only 7 negative reviews out of 1500 today).

Just got it. Sorta like a minecraft/sim city vs Zerg, lots of depth. So far it's fun

Played a good 12 hours this weekend. This game is ridiculously addictive and fun. Very complex and incredibly satisfying when you get some automated efficiently. I'm planning on starting over to work a little better on design. Right now my base is more of the "spaghetti approach" and very disorganized.

Also I learned you want to always have your belts full to show you the load and make sure production isn't resource constrained (production is always > demand of a resource).

I was addicted for quite awhile. then it just fell off my radar. I kinda wish I had waited to get so deep into the game until later, when multiplayer was finally a thing.

^ not really. There's "missions" that walk you through the first couple of hours of the game but it wasn't helpful for late game stuff. There's a demo on their website that runs you through the first hour or so of gameplay that's free. I tried that and purchased the full game on the same day.

Dive right in and start playing. I enjoyed being a noob at it.

After about 5 hours of play instarted watching youtube videos and seeing designs/strats and adapting those.

Im fan of the main bus system. I recommend negative root youtube channell.
