  • 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.
  • Building space and building count are summed for all buildings, excluding belts, pipes, power poles, power lines and other logistic infrastructures. The lower the better.


  • When there's lots of Copper nearby, Iron Alloy Ingot can be used to increase your Iron Ingot production, should you ever be in desperate need of more Iron. Its a bit more compact than a row of Smelters. Its main downside is the usage of Copper, which is actually much more scarce than Iron Ore.
    - "Finally a good use for this useless Copper. What else would I use it for, Wire? "
  • If you have a lot of Water available, Pure Iron Ingot can be used to boost your Iron Ingot production without using other valuable resources. If you don't feel confident enough dealing with the power demand and size of Refineries, as well as piping, consider a different recipe.
    - "Neat, more Refineries! These will fit nicely into my Refinery collection."
