Basic Factories are the first tier of factory units in the crafting hierarchy. They are the only factory system that can be built directly from the player's inventory. They are responsible for creating basic system blocks such as Ship Cores, Power Reactor Modules, and Thruster Modules as well as all basic hulls. Basic Factories are often the first leg in larger, more complex factory set ups. By connecting the Basic Factory to a Storage Block, The factory will automatically pull resources needed from it. Factories cannot be placed on ships, but can be placed on planets, asteroids, and Space Stations. However, they do require a power output to become functional.
