Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Resource acquisition[edit | edit source]

Coal 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.

*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.

  • Patch 0.3.4.9: Reverted to the old mesh as of 0.3.4.7, improved icon readability
  • Patch 0.3.4.7: New mesh and icon introduced
  • Patch 0.3: Fuel value was re-balanced to 300, from 270. Resulting burn time however was reduced due to increased Coal Generator power output.
  • Patch 0.2.1.19: New mesh and icon introduced
