AWESOME Sink[]

 Heavy Modular Frame can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 11 520 points.

Tips[]

Ore Original Cost Alternative Cost Savings
 Iron Ore 247.5 47.8 80.6%
 Limestone 75 36 52.0%
 Coal 102.5 35.3 65.5%
  • This requires the Engineer to unlock  Alternate Recipes: Bolted Frame, Casted Screw, Encased Industrial Pipes, Heavy Encased Frame, Iron Wire, Pure Iron Ingots, Solid Steel Ingot, Stitched Iron Plates, and Wet Concrete.
  • Additional 57.3m3 of water is required in this setup.
