Factorio Rules

Server rules:

  • Respect other.
  • No advertising or mentioning other servers.
  • Don’t ask to become staff.
  • Don’t impersonate staff.
  • ScoutWired will ban any user attempting to send unsolicited friend requests.
  • Please report the user directly to a Team Member, or submit a ticket on the contact-us page


  • No inappropriate language (IE: swearing, abusive or discriminatory)

  • Don’t curse in public chats or in personal ones.

Other rules:

  • No begging. Asking nicely once or twice is acceptable.
  • No griefing. Please do not destroy, deface, graffiti, or build on top of another person’s constructions. This includes;
    • diverting resources away from the primary factory.
    • rerouting trains.
    • pulling biters into the build zones so they destroy anything.
  • No stealing from crates/boxes including logistic network boxes.
  • No hacking. Using interface mods or programs to circumvent our security system can lead to being banned.
  • Don’t exploit game mechanics. We’re Scouts and we are working to build a better world together and make an effective fun factory.
  • No offensive builds, names or skins.
  • No death traps or places where users will definitely die.
  • No scamming players.
  • Please don’t overload the logistics network.
  • No more than 25 construction bots in a personal port.
  • No more than 10 total follower bots.
  • Ask Admin if you can start a new research module
  • Don’t share broken, unworkable plans.
  • Players caught using plans to break our rules (such as sharing personal info, messaging, or attempting to hack or unsettle/crash our server) will be banned.
  • Stick to naming conventions- we use poaint-to-point (P2P) names for trains: <cargo>###-Dock for receiving cargo, and <cargo>###-Dispatch for sending cargo. eg- Route [Iron001-Dispatch -> Iron001-Dock]. Stations that do not comply will be renamed by Admin.
  • Use labels so we all know what it is your build is doing.
  • All technical issues or tech support issues related to Factorio are to go through the Help Desk on the Contact Us page.

The ultimate goal is to get the factory launching 1 rocket to space every minute.
