  • 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.
  • Among multiple ways to produce each of the ingredient, the recipe with the lowest WP is chosen. See also:


  • If you have some Caterium Ingots to spare, Fused Wire can help you get more of that much needed Wire. Its also more compact and uses less power than a row of Constructors making Wire. If you need those Caterium Ingots elsewhere, consider a different recipe.
    -"Nearly 4 times more Wire for JUST some extra Caterium? Boy, sign me right up!"
  • Should you need Wire but have no Copper Ingots available, Iron Wire can be used as a low-cost substitute. It produces Wire slower than the normal recipe, so you will need to build more Constructors.
    -"Perfect for Ironing out all those kinked Wire factories"
  • Got no Copper AND no Iron nearby? Then Caterium Wire might be useful to you. It's really efficient at producing a lot of wire very fast, for a very small Caterium cost.
    -"Caterium Wire's the name, speed's my game!"
