Running and Testing the factory
The Factory is easy to control. On every level there is a Factory Control Panel.
The Factory Control Panel is used for:
Press the button labeled On/Off to toggle the Factory on and off. You can also press the Space bar to do this.
While the Factory is running you can adjust its speed by sliding the Speed Handle to the left or right. Left is slower, right is faster. Speed has no effect on the performance of the Factory. All the machines and HoverPlates will act exactly the same way regardless of the speed you run it.
When you turn the Factory on, you’ll see Hover Plates rise out of Dough Ports.
HoverPlates can pass through donut-making machines in any direction.
HoverPlates are not smart. They’ll collide into walls and other HoverPlates. But they can be controlled.
There are many machines available in the Donut Factory that will change the direction a HoverPlate moves.
Dough Ports have a little display on them indicating the direction in which the HoverPlate will travel when it rises out of the Port. Most Dough Ports have a fixed direction but some of them can be changed.
Many levels have multiple Shipping Exits, but they all lead to the
same place. You can ship any donut to any Shipping Exit and have it
count towards your goal.
