FACTORIO MEGABASE TUTORIAL & THEORY
This series will focus on how to start, build, and complete a Megabase in Factorio. The tips, tricks, builds, guides and theory in this series should help you build your own Megabase for the first time.
Episode 3 focuses on how to actually begin transition / switching to a Megabase from your Starter Base, Mass Module Production and some Rail / Train System Designs and Sizes. This is a question I get a lot and something that a lot of people struggle with, including more experienced players. It can be very daunting to move from your first factory into actually building your Megabase.

I have found that the easiest method is to start planning and building your Megabase in a separate part of the map, in an entirely different area from your starter base. Trying to actually turn your starter base into a Megabase is very difficult in most situations and will cause more headaches than it’s worth in my experience.
Next you will likely need to produce a large amount of Modules and Beacons! Creating a small factory that is dedicated to producing Modules and perhaps a few other things will help you get those expensive items built much easier and quicker. You can also have your starter base work on some science and/or help build other items you’ll need for a huge base, such as Assembling Machines, Inserters, Robots / Belts etc.

Lastly, making some general decisions on the type of rail / train network you’ll be using will help a lot in the long run. Will you use a 2 lane rail system, or 4 lane system? Single headed trains which need loops in the network or double headed trains that don’t? Don’t forget to space out your builds and junctions a lot too! We will cover spacing more in-depth when we go over specific build designs and placement.

Hope you enjoy the video and series and find it helpful! I appreciate constructive feedback so I can improve with each episode! If you did enjoy, please consider liking the video and subscribing.
