  • 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.
  • Energy for sinking byproducts are considered, assuming using Conveyor Belt Mk.5.
  • Although Coke Steel Ingot has slightly lower WP than Solid Steel Ingot, it has more weighted Oil usage than its base resource, Iron Ore. Thus, Solid Steel Ingot will be chosen when it is involved in higher tier item analysis.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Steel Ingot can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 8 points.

Tips[]

  • Solid Steel is the most efficient recipe, due to conserving Coal which is the rarer component and allowing for the incorporation with a ratio of Iron Ore to ingot greater than 1:1.
    • If a large Iron Ingot pipeline is already established, a Solid Steel foundry can draw from that rather than requiring a separate ore stream.
    • Solid Steel can also take advantage of the Iron Alloy Ingot or Pure Iron Ingot alternate recipes, increasing ore efficiency even further.
  • Compacted Steel can become useful in mid-to-late-game if Sulfur is available in sufficient amounts.
  • Steel is better than iron for most purposes (using alternate recipes), but iron is better for making Iron Plates, and can also be made into Wire, while steel cannot.
