engineers creed

i always considered the riflemans creed an hilarious movie quote. also because LNP180 repurposed it in such a glorious way.
but i just realized the original creed isn’t satire.

however. this is my take on it – in factorio-flavour:

This is my factory. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My factory is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

Without me, my factory is useless. Without my factory, I am useless. I must expand my factory. I must expand faster than thy bitters who are trying to kill me. I must shoot them before they eat me. I will…

My factory and I know that what counts in engineering is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our assemblers, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the expansion that counts. We will expand …

Before the great gear, I swear this creed. My factory and I are the defenders of my rocket. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my factory.

So be it, until the rocket is launched and there is no bitter, but peace!
