The Rocket Silo is currently the only win condition. Once the silo has been built and placed it can be filled with low density structures, rocket fuel, and rocket control units which will allow rocket parts to be created within the silo.

You need 100 Rocket part to be able to launch. Each rocket part need 10 low density structure, 10 rocket fuel, and rocket control unit.

When all rocket parts have been completed the rocket silo interface will be at 100% and allow the player to input a satellite component. Launching the rocket with a satellite will complete the game and a win menu will be displayed that shows all kills and the playing time, asking the player to exit the current game, continue, or view the replay.

However, launching the silo without the satellite is sadly pointless, as it won't count as a win, and will be a massive waste of resources. More resources will be needed to make another rocket.

Building a silo requires, among other things, Electric engine units, Engine units, and Processing units, which must be produced in assembling machines and cannot be crafted by hand from raw. The rocket itself can also only be produced in the silo.
