  • 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. The exception is mentioned below:

Usage[]

Research[]

 Encased Industrial Beam is used in the Sulfur Research chain in the MAM.png MAM for additional unlocks.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Encased Industrial Beam can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 632 points.

Trivia[]

  • 43 Encased Industrial Beams are used in Drop Pods.

Tips[]

  • It is encouraged to automate this item with Alternate: Encased Industrial Pipe once available, as it consumes fewer Steel Ingots.
  • Comparison between original recipes and alternate recipes for crafting 1 Encased Industrial Beam:
-  Iron Ore  Coal  Limestone  Water
Original recipes 16 16 15 -
Alternate recipes 3.77 7.0 7.5 8.4
Usage (%) 23.6 43.8 50 N/A

Using alternate recipes, there is a trade-off between resource efficiency vs. Space and Power usage.

History[]

  • Patch 0.1: Changed from Reinforced Steel Plate to Encased Industrial Beam, changed recipe (previously made with Screws instead of Concrete). Its previous icon is now used for the Heat Sink.
