Can I build two factories, put a green worker on each one, and get +2 prod on each green production and sustenance building?

Yes. Factory effects stack. They also stack with embassies that provide factory-like effects. (I believe it's industrialist, though it's worth noting that Industrialist does not affect sustenance buildings.)

Do the factory and industrialist colony also increase your tools during the production phase? I would guess no, but the symbols on those buildings imply that they do.

I think the answer is yes, it does increase them, but there doesn't seem to be such a building that exists for it to increase.

So perhaps further expansions will give buildings that it could apply to.

No, factories doesn't increase your production of tools. The symbol in the factory is the one from de production and sustenance buildings. This symbol is similar to the tools, but not the same.

Not really confusing.

Factories increase production of buildings with the SAME worker type that's in the factory. Smithy has no worker in it, so it's not boosted.

specifically it doesn't increase your smithy cause there isn't a matching colored worker.

Sorry, the actual usage isn't confusing but the symbology is. The +tools symbol which means production buildings looks very much like the tools symbol at the top of the player board. I played it as +1 tool as well the first few games. Clearly not what the rules say but the symbol could have been different.

I played it that way as well, but felt like I was accumulating too many tools. It may be time I get some glasses so I can inspect the small icons more closely.

Hey guys, sorry to hijack a thread. What building is the factory backed with? I'm doing a solo runthrough and I can't find the factory tiles anywhere. :/ trying to avoid a mini heart attack

Dah never mind. Found them. Confusing that some casinos are backed with Pubs, but a few have factories.

My god. Completely ignore me. My brain is broken today.
