  • 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.
    • As Uranium Waste is a by-product of power generation, it is assigned with 0 energy.
  • 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. Exception is mentioned below:
  • Although the Instant Plutonium Cell recipe use more raw resources, it is necessary to max out Uranium-Plutonium production, as it costs less Nuclear Waste per Cell.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Encased Plutonium Cell cannot be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink and will clog the input.

History[]

  • Patch 0.4.0.11:
    • Instant Plutonium Cell:
      • No longer uses Nitrogen Gas
      • Changed Aluminum Casing cost from 50 to 20
  • Patch 0.4.0.8:
    • Default recipe:
      • Doubled production time
      • Changed Plutonium Pellet cost from 1 to 2
      • Changed Concrete cost from 2 to 4
    • Alternate: Instant Plutonium Cell:
      • Changed recipe craft time from 60 to 120 seconds
      • Changed Non-fissile Uranium cost from 75 to 150
      • Changed Aluminum Casing cost from 25 to 50
      • Changed Nitrogen Gas cost from 25 to 20
      • Changed Encased Plutonium Cell product from 25 to 20
    • Radioactivity doubled (60->120) due to above reason
  • Patch 0.4.0.0: Introduced
