The AWESOME Sink is a special building that produces FICSIT Coupons for use in the AWESOME Shop by destroying items inserted into it, converting them into points based on their value or complexity, which in turn can be used to print the aforementioned Coupons. Each successive Coupon gets more expensive as more points are converted into it.
Once at least one Coupon is generated, the option to print it is made available. Once the 'Print' button is pressed, an animation is played, where a Coupon comes out of the slot with the actual Coupon items. These coupons must be retrieved by dragging them into the inventory or using (⇧ Shift + ). Coupons have a stack size of 500, so if the amount of accumulated coupons exceeds 500, the remaining coupons will remain in the Sink.
The Sink can consume items at 600 items/min maximum, which appears to be unintended, as its in-game description says it can handle items 'as fast as you can supply it'.
Multiple Sinks can be constructed. Accumulated points will be shared between all Sinks and Coupons can be printed from any. If all Sinks are deconstructed, the amount of points and accumulated Coupons is stored.
AWESOME is an acronym, which stands for "Anti-Waste Effort for Stress-Testing of Materials on Exoplanets".
Items not allowed to sink[edit | edit source]
Some items cannot be fed into the AWESOME Sink and will clog the input. It's advised to pick up these items or reconstruct the belt to allow other items to be sinked.
- Consumables such as Beryl Nut, Bacon Agaric, and Paleberry (does not apply to the Medicinal Inhaler)
- Special items such as HUB Parts, Power Slug, Power Shard and Hard Drive
- Loot such as Alien Carapace and Alien Organ (Biomass produced from them can be sinked though)
- Nuclear Waste, which will show a warning that radioactive items not being allowed for contaminating the results, however, the warning is not shown when any other radioactive item is sinked
- S.A.M. Ore, likely because it is unfinished (given that it's not available in large quantities, it's not advisable to sink it anyway)
Coupon cost[edit | edit source]
NOTICE[edit | edit source]The amount of points required per coupon and the increase curve were changed as of Patch 0.3.3.0,
Coupons increase in point cost as more are acquired.
The first three coupons cost 1000 points. After that, the cost for the n-th coupon = (ceil(n/3)²)*1000. In other words, if you imagine that each group of three coupons is numbered, the cost of a coupon is the coupon's group squared, x1000. As of 21 Feb 2020, it takes 1659 coupons to purchase every non-producible item in the AWESOME shop. The total cost for this number of coupons is 169 878 282 000 awesome points. This requires 15681 turbo motors to achieve and takes 5.731 days for a single 100% efficient manufacturer to produce. Release notes suggest further items will be added to the AWESOME shop in future releases.

Reason: "Patch 0.3.3.0 changes the points per ticket; the table and equation need to be updated. Check the wiki-workers Discord channel for gathered data."
Points generated per item[edit | edit source]
Generally speaking, processed items are worth more points than all their components combined.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Some items can be used to effectively get lots of points:
- Raw Quartz: If a resource node is found early, lots of points can be generated with minimal effort. Converting them to Quartz Crystals once possible increases efficiency.
- Quickwire: Given how much can be manufactured from just a single node, sinking excess can be effective.
- A.I. Limiter: Similar to Quickwire, but considerably more effective.
- Excess Space Elevator parts: Have no use if not demanded by the Space Elevator.
