TECH 1 AEON LAND FACTORY

The Land Factory should be your default choice on any map that doesn’t have big quantities of water, and if you’re Aeon, you may even give it a try. Since T1 land battles often involve enormous masses of land units, you’ll want a lot of T1 land factories – they’re better than T1 engineers by far.

T1 Land Factory Stats

Armor: 4500hp
Abilities: Upgradeable
Cost: M240 (storage: 80), E2100 (storage: 400), T300,
build rate: 10
Intel: sight: 20 (391m)
Physics: size for adjacency: 16

TECH 1 AEON AIR FACTORY

T1 aircraft never go out of style. It’s perfectly feasible as a first factory if you decide to be daring or on larger maps, too. Extra T1 air factories can always be set to build interceptors and bombers until you have the economic prowess to get them to T2.

TECH 1 AEON NAVAL FACTORY

Taking to the seas is expensive, but an early sea advantage can often translate into an unstoppable fleet with ease, so it should be considered. Just be sure to have a Land or Air Factory first so that you can maximize early economy.

MASS EXTRACTOR

The bread and butter of your war machine. Build these as quickly as possible, everywhere you possibly can. Remember to upgrade them later.

Mass drain reduction (factories):
10.00%, 5.00%, 3.33%, 2.50%, 2.00%

MASS FABRICATOR

T1 fabricators are quite energy-efficient, and can be used to smooth out your mass troubles quickly. Unfortunately, they’ll explode in a chain reaction, so don’t let a bomber or assault bot get to them.

Mass Fabricator Weapons

Death Weapon: 370 damage, area: 5 (97.7m)

MASS STORAGE

Mass Storage is useless on its own, but the adjacency bonuses make it worth your while to put them around higher-level Mass Extractors. Mass is very swingy at the later stages of the game, and you won’t stall your economy so quickly if you have lots of Mass Storage helping you extract.

POWER GENERATOR

Adjacency bonuses makes these the perfect thing to line your factories with. You never want to run out of energy, and these are a good way to make sure you have no idle Engineers in the game’s early stages.

Power Generator Weapons

Death Weapon: 250 damage, area: 2 (39.1m)

ENERGY STORAGE

Unlike mass, energy is easy to produce, so you’re better off just building more power generators with that Engineer – you don’t need an adjacency bonus.

HYDROCARBON POWER PLANT

These things are invaluable – they’re not a big economic drain, they boost your energy production enough for you to build multiple factories at the T1 level before you’re fully expanded, and they have enough health that a raiding party can’t randomly kill them, unlike T1 Power Generators.
