### new data on time to make a robot

Posted:

**Tue Dec 29, 2015 2:03 am**After extensive research and development ... and some creative math ...

the following results have been predicted for near optimal farm operation.

Basic assumptions:

you have all your crafting tools

steel farming tools

40+ slots worth of chests to hold inventory along the way

enough seeds to plant at least 6 full rows each of iron/copper/sand trees

seeds for 2+ rows of plastic trees

at least a dozen of each kind of gate seed

seeds for 2+ rows of pine trees

near optimal automation

It takes about 300 robot hours to farm the mats for an additional robot.

1 working robot = 300 hours

2 working robots = 150 hours

3 working robots = 100 hours

4 working robots = 75 hours

5 working robots = 60 hours

6 working robots = 50 hours

additional robots, beyond 6, do not provide a proportional increase in overall farm productivity
