  • 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.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Quartz Crystal can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 50 points.

Tips[]

  • Quartz Crystal was previously not very useful. However, with the addition of Lights in Update 4, and the various components required for Drones & Phase 4 of Project Assembly, it has found purpose as a necessary precursor to the Crystal Oscillator. Raw Quartz, Quartz Crystal's precursor, should still be refined into Silica before efforts are made to create a Crystal Oscillator production chain, as large amounts of Silica are needed for Aluminum production.
