For Youth By Youth


ScoutWired has a dedicated Factorio server. This is a game that users work as a team to build a factory that launches rockets into space. We run this 24/7, and even host some events from time to time. 

Our Factorio server has a whole host of things to do! With researching nuclear energy, killing bugs with lasers and launching rockets, we have a lot of work to finish!
