Can't built cars at Tiny/Small factory

I’ve tried multiple combinations of car materials, but no matter what, the game won’t let me proceed on the factory screen for a Tiny/Small car factory. I assume it’s because the “Recommendation Not Met” flag for Aluminum Presses or SMC Injectors. But, you can’t get these at Tiny/Small factories. If I go medium, it works fine. But, there is not nearly enough demand for these limited production cars.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Aluminium presses are “recommended” which does not mean “required”, so you can produce the cars in a smaller factory but with more manual labor. Nothing wrong with that. SMC Injectors are the same in that regard. A streamlined process for making fiberglass like panels semi-automated.

The problem is that the game won’t let me proceed in making the small factory without the recommended addon. It literally stops me from proceeding unless I go up to medium.

I can build aluminium panel cars just fine in a small factory. What exactly are your settings for the chassis material and type, as well as the panel material?

Strange, not sure why I cannot. I get stuck on the factory size/addon screen. When I try to proceed, it won’t. I’ve attached screenshots of this screen, and the car that it’s doing it on. I recreated this scenario, as I had already proceeded on the last one, but it has the same exact issue. Different body, even, but same chassis selections. I hope this helps!

I will also try to attach the game files, but not sure if that’ll work

Ahh, the bug is in not displaying the need for Steel Presses, because monocoque steel (galvanized) needs steel presses which you only get with a medium factory. We’ll look into that.

Alright, should be fixed for the next update.

Yup, you’re right. I switch to ladder or space frame & it works fine. Looks like you’ve already got it implemented, but it needs to be added on both screens.

I’m glad to beta test for you guys! :slight_smile:
