Additionally, its resource scanner is unlocked in the Tier 7 milestone Aeronautical Engineering.

Resource acquisition[]

Sulfur can be harvested by hand (default E) in trace amounts from resource deposits scattered across the world, or from inexhaustible resource nodes on which Miners can be constructed to extract automatically. Additonally, Lizard Doggos will ocassionally bring it when tamed.

Normal 7 1680 4200
Pure 3 1440 3600
Total 11 3240 6840* / 8100

*Note: The extraction rate of a Miner Mk.3 at 250 % is 1200/min, but a Mk.5 Conveyor can only carry 780/min, therefore the maximum mined amount cannot be transported.

Extraction energy[]

It takes about 10.84 MJ to extract 1 Sulfur.
