Water is a fluid resource essential for power generation and some late-game products. It can also be used to improve the conversion rate of various ores to ingots in Refineries, once their respective alternate recipe is unlocked.

It is the first fluid the pioneer has access to, being obtained using Water Extractors built on water bodies. Extraction from Resource Wells can be unlocked in Tier 8.

Obtaining[]

Resource acquisition[]

Water is extracted from water bodies using Water Extractors. Water bodies aren't considered to be resource nodes, therefore they don't have a purity and it's not possible to scan for them with the Resource Scanner.

Water can also be extracted from Resource Wells using Resource Well Extractors which spread over 8 clusters. The default extraction rates are as follows:

Node purity m3/min at 100% m3/min at 250%
Impure 30 75
Normal 60 150
Pure 120 300

This means the following amount of Water is available by extracting from Resource Wells:

Node
purity
Number
of nodes
Mk.1
mining rate
Mk.1 mining rate
at 250 %
Impure 5 150 375
Normal 8 480 1200
Pure 42 5040 12600
Total 55 5670 14175

The maximum extraction rate of Water is virtually infinite as they can be extracted from large water bodies such as sea or ponds.

Extraction energy[]

It takes exactly 10 MJ to extract 1 m3 of water, assuming it is extracted from water bodies and not from Resource Wells (as the latter method is not power-efficient).

Usage[]

Power[]

Water is required for Coal Generators and Nuclear Power Plants, alongside their respective physical requirements, to produce power.

  • At 100% clock speed, Coal Generators consume water at a rate of 45 m3/min, regardless of the type of fuel provided.
  • At 100% clock speed, Nuclear Power Plants consume water at a rate of 300 m3/min.

Tips[]

  • Diluting Heavy Oil Residue with Water is a good way to boost petrochemical production.
  • Sinking excess water with Wet Concrete is a simple way to prevent fluids backing up
