Coal is a common early-game resource found in the world which is used for advanced smelting or power generation. It can power Coal Generators and vehicles. It burns for four seconds in a Coal Generator.

For more details about Coal power, see Coal Generator.

Obtaining[]

Resource acquisition[]

Coal can be harvested by hand (default E) in trace amounts from resource deposits scattered across the world, or from inexhaustible resource nodes on which Miners can be constructed to extract automatically. Additonally, Lizard Doggos will ocassionally bring it when tamed.

*Note: The extraction rate of a Miner Mk.3 at 250 % is 1200/min, but a Mk.5 Conveyor can only carry 780/min, therefore the maximum mined amount cannot be transported.

Extraction energy[]

It takes about 10.88 MJ to extract 1 Coal.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Coal can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 3 points.

Tips[]

Current issue[]

While Satisfactory Interactive Map shows there are 15 pure nodes, one of the pure node in Dune Desert is overlapping with another, effectively reduce the resource node count by 1. Thus, 780/min of Coal resources is lost.

History[]

  • Patch 0.3.4.9: Reverted to the old mesh as of 0.3.4.7, improved icon readability
  • Patch 0.3.4.7: New mesh and icon introduced
  • Patch 0.3: Fuel value was re-balanced to 300, from 270. The resulting burn time however was reduced due to increased Coal Generator power output.
  • Patch 0.2.1.19: New mesh and icon introduced
