Wow, factorio becomes a very different feeling game once you get robotics. I finally stopped restarting the game every time the belt-routing got slightly irritating and got to start building logistics robots (decent for untangling things) and construction robots (blueprints are amaaziiinngg).

But then I catch myself and I realize that I've made myself feel the feeling that copy and paste is an amazing invention, a thing I've been able to do all along. (in the sense of knowing that it's fundamentally an easy operation in a computer) It's an impressive psychological achievement that playing the game makes me actually feel that not being able to copypasta is the norm. I.e. the game-physics were adequately compelling, adequately immersive, or something like that.
