  • 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.
  • Space refers to building space, excluding belts and pipes. The lower the better.
  • Energy for sinking byproducts are considered, assuming using Conveyor Belt Mk.5.

AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

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

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
