Of course this is with low tier molten zinc, this is all that is available before blue science, and blue science requires zinc production.

Of course if you´re using a low tier molten zinc recipe you will use more, might be your case.subie wrote: ↑Sat Dec 29, 2018 7:28 amZinc production is fuckin wack.
Using the liquid zinc to plates recipe, to make just 20 zinc plates you need:
250x zinc ore
250x iron plates
1000x heavy oil
30x sand castings
and you have some trace amounts of soil, stone, sand and tailings to deal with.
Orrrr i could just smelt 120x zinc ore by it self.
Id love to hear solutions.
The first molten zinc recipe requires 100 heavy oil, 3 sand castings, and 3 limestone PER 10 molten zinc. This recipe is just horrible and should be put more inline with the first liquid lead or aluminum recipes, as those are both reasonable, and moderately useful.
