Its not so much your missing something as it depends on your situation. If you have pypetroleumhanding or pyalienlife effects it. Ore patch size and density. Biters. Simply becuase you want 2. There are a lot of variables that determine that go into it and while some people that play pymods will min max til theyve sucked all the fun out of it you have plenty of ok options.razahin wrote: ↑Mon Mar 02, 2020 2:30 amThanks for answering, I'm happy with a "working as intended" response. For my early science coal I just used wood -> coal -> coke since the ratios we're better and I had an abundance of trees. From your answer ("or use fawogae to coal if you think its worth doing") it sounds like there might be a better option I'm missing. I've been operating under the assumption that I have to do coal processing for power until something like Nuclear. I'll have to do some exploring in the tech tree.kingarthur wrote: ↑Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:31 am
no. no thought has been given to improving the distillation recipes as i made it terrible intentionally. its only there because there is like 2 recipes that actually need coal to make science to start unlocking things. its not meant to be good or used passed getting started. burn the raw coal and then unlock raw coal processing to get better coal returns or use fawogae to coal if you think its worth doing.
tldr. i did every thing i could to push you away from raw coal distillation as its a stop gap to fix science issues
Thanks for all your hard work on this mod, I'm really enjoying it.
Usually going with the powerhouse and combustion mixture is a good power source for a while or if you have pypetroleumhanding I've seen people use the oil boiler to make big setups with Natural gas or something as well
