  • Weighted Point is the weighted consumption rate which is calculated by: (resource consumption rate / maximum extraction rate) * 10,000. The lower the better.
  • Energy per item can be used to measure how much power is consumed for the entire production chain. The lower the better.
  • Space refers to building space, excluding belts and pipes. The lower the better.
  • Among multiple ways to produce each of the ingredient, the recipe with the lowest WP is chosen. See also:
  • The maximum conversion rate from Bauxite to Ingot can be achieved with Sloppy Alumina > Electrode - Aluminum Scrap > Default Ingot, but it greatly increase usage of Silica (therefore, Raw Quartz and Limestone). Instant Scrap could also be used to reach the maximum but it require Sulfur and doesn't reduce Raw Quartz consumption anyway.

Tips[]

Aluminium Ingot production is the critical point of endgame production. The correct output rate must be found with your production scenario. Proceed as follow :

  • First, produce Sloppy Alumina > Electrode - Aluminum Scrap with all bauxite available.
  • Second, calculate your ingot output rate using Pure Aluminium Ingot recipe (theoretical maximum : 9780 pure ingots per minute).
  • Third, adjust your output rate to meet your production plan by replacing some Pure Aluminium Ingot by default Aluminium Ingot. Howover, keep in mind that the default Aluminium Ingot drastically increase your Raw Quartz consumption for only few more ingots (exactly 15 raw quartz using Cheap Silica recipe, for only 7 more ingots). So, prefer to adjust your production plan instead of increasing to much the default aluminium ingot ratio (a good example is with Radio Control Unit recipe, if caterium is abundant, then use Radio Connection Unit alternate, even if it increase all other consumption, especially caterium and raw quartz).

 Aluminum Ingot can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 131 points.

History[]

  • Patch 0.4.0.8:
    • Alternate: Pure Aluminum Ingot:
      • Changed recipe craft time from 20 to 2 seconds
      • Changed Aluminum Scrap cost from 18 to 2
      • Changed Aluminum Ingot product from 9 to 1
  • Patch 0.4.0.0: Recipes have changed, significantly buffing the amount of Ingots made from Aluminum Scrap
  • Patch 0.3: Aluminum processing was overhauled, now is smelted out of Aluminum Scrap instead of Bauxite
  • Patch 0.2.1: Introduced
