Smart! is the Swiss Army knife of your factory building dreams! There are a few key areas where we can help you take your factory building to the next level!

Foundations, Walls, Ramps

Smart! will allow you to build entire foundations, walls, and ramps in a single click. Go from building each foundation, wall, and ramp individually to laying them out 100 by 100 if you'd like! (and you have enough space for that much concrete!)


Smart! has fine control tools allowing you to create entire rows of buildings, carefully spaced apart to allow you to sneak belts or poles between them, consistently! (if you're into making pretty patterns with your layouts!)

Belts, Mergers, Splitters, Stack

Smart! makes it easy to layout and space all manner of item transportation. With auto-snapping belts you can even lay down a row of splitters that auto-connect to themselves and the closest machines! (unless you enjoy the alignment game with splitters and mergers...)


Smart! has a simple button layout, and lots of visual helpers. We don't require that you build any special tools, unlock any special recipe, or make you use custom foundations or buildings. We extend the base functionality of the game, we don't rebuild it!

Our button layout is:

button modifiers effect
Left Shift must be held + scroll increase/decrease count along the x axis
Left Alt must be held + scroll increase/decrease count along the y axis
Left Alt + Left Shift must be held + scroll increase/decrease count along the z axis
Scroll Wheel any key increases or decreases the key selected
U must be held + scroll increase/decrease steps up/down
T must be held + scroll increase/decrease swirl left/right
L must be held + scroll increase/decrease levitation up/down
P must be held + scroll increase/decrease spacing between items
H toggle lock building position to inspect
M toggle toggle settings screen

Controls Video Tutorials

Twirl (T) Spacing (P)


  • Auto-connecting poles with belts may crash so please save the game and reload it after you built those long belts and before pushing items to there.
  • On Epic settings are not saved/loaded but on Steam it works

Huge thx to Marcio for all his help from the beginning of my path as mod creator, TwoTwoEleven for his awesome code examples from MM, to Archengius for his fine example of overriding the default buildings and to Mircea for some fine thoughts. Thx jay96 for your amazing idea about arrows.


Smart! has had quite a few videos made for it, and we're incredibly appreciative of it! Let's start out with a nice overview video for V.16
