Direct casting to bolts is worthless

Post by ZCDHP »

Looks like it consumes more materials and saves half of the power when comparing to craft bolts from iron plates. This is a bad trade off obviously. And it introduces more logistic challenges to work through.
I suppose this recipe is intended to be like "You are consuming less resources, but you need to figure out how to route those bolts now". So maybe this recipe could be boosted a little bit?

Agree, looks like balance issue
I hope this balance error will be fixed in next release
the production of bolts using sand casting should be more profitable than the production of iron sticks

Casting of bolts requires common sand casting and not advanced sand casting from arqad wax
iron stick, iron gear wheels, small parts, iron pipes, drill heads, copper cables, tinned cables, engine units, lead containers, niobium pipes and multipurpose pipes require advanced sand casting :!:
Only iron bolts require common sand casting :D

In the same vein, advanced casting of pipe is barely better compared to making it directly from iron plates to the point where it doesn't seem like it's worth bothering with :

And underground pipes take the same amount of metal :

Thanks !

No, I'm trying to boycott Discord, but looks like I got sucked back into it after finding that Discord was the least objectionable way to contact someone else, sigh... :roll:
